Many Christian ministries visit the Developing World. What makes LttN Ministries different? Several things:

  1. Available Time:

    It is one thing to visit a country and conduct a conference or training event. It is another thing to stay long enough or return often enough to model, teach and mentor the things being taught. By returning to countries year after year, and in some cases several times in a year, we have opportunity to continue the mentoring process.
  2. Cultural Understanding.

    Learning to understand and appreciate the culture of the people among whom we minister is vital. Rich experience in cross cultural ministry makes one alert to cultural sensitivities.
  3. Going where the people are.

    Many of the most needy people are far off the beaten track living in villages without reliable safe drinking water, power or even the most basic conveniences. We will go into such places to encourage and enrich those who often miss out. We frequently travel long distances to minister to small groups of Christian workers. We feel this is our calling.
  4. Asking for Nothing.

    In offering our ministry we expect little from those to whom we go. We look to the Lord for all costs associated with our travel and living expenses. Our aim is to be as little burden and as much blessing as possible. However we have also learned that it is wise to encourage people to have some personal investment in ministries offered them. Accordingly we look for some measure of partnership with local groups and individuals making a small contribution in proportion to their ability.
  5. Practical Ministry Experience.

    Leaders in the Developing World tell us that one principle benefit of the ministry we bring is the foundation in life and ministry experience. The things we teach are thoroughly tested in the realities of who we are and the years of ministry we have exercised. When we invite others to join us as part of the team, we look for people who likewise have knowledge and godliness firmly founded in practical ministry experience.
  6. Live what you teach

    Our aim is to live what we teach; To teach with practical application and to continue to encourage those we teach as they make application to their lives and ministries.

 

Gavin and Glenda Williams travel to target countries and stay for periods of up to 3 months. During their stay, they speak into the lives of existing and emerging leaders at every opportunity. They work with the Church in the target country to ensure that ministry strategies and approaches are those best suited to the needs of local people.

Our first group of SALT Graduates will complete their studies and graduate in May 2007. It has been wonderful to watch the growth and maturity of these students over the past three years. We have visited many in their church situations and rejoice to see the way in which SALT has been of practical benefit in helping their disciple their people and mentor future leaders.

In other countries the ministry operates in different was as best fits the needs of the local situation and the guidance of local Christian leaders.
