Sticks in a bundle

Sticks in a bundle are unbreakable. ~Kenyan proverb

This Kenyan proverb reminds me of one of my favorite verses, found in Ecclesiastes 4:12, “Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.”

It came as no surprise when soon after our appointment with Pioneers we were asked to build a number of different teams to support our ministry in East Africa. Pioneers mission agency has a core value of being TEAM-centered. A team is like sticks in a bundle—unbreakable.

Teams that are both task- and member-focused are the core of Pioneers. This is crucial since many of the world’s remaining unreached peoples are in difficult and isolated pockets of the world.

When we all join together in whatever endeavor the Lord has for us, we are bound in a bundle with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and we are unbreakable. As we take this next step in our journey, we ask that you add your stick to our bundle and help us share the love of Christ in East Africa.
