Some of our AccessTruth team traveled to Mozambique to capture and film the story of what God is doing among a people group there. As the people group are predominately Islamic, the missionary team knew it would be a challenging place to share the Gospel. Now after being in that location for over 11 years – building relationships, learning language and culture, teaching and translating Bible lessons – God has done an amazing work with many coming to faith in Christ. It continues to be a difficult work but God is faithful. He is building His church. Phil Henderson has been working as part of the team there in church planting and Bible translation. We asked him the question:
How can cross-cultural workers determine what is an appropriate level of contextualization and avoid the dangers of syncretism?
