"SENSITIVE" LOCATIONS
Rosedale Mennonite Missions works in countries where few people have heard the gospel—“least reached” areas. Some of these are “sensitive” locations. In these countries, RMM workers can put themselves in danger or face legal consequences, sometimes deportation, if they are known as missionaries or “proselytizers.” We believe it is critical to share the good news in these places, despite cultural or legal opposition, just as Jesus risked the wrath of the Pharisees to heal and do good on the Sabbath (see Matthew 12).

We want to do our best, however, to make sure no information is published that could compromise what these workers are trying to accomplish or put them at personal risk. Therefore the following workers are not pictured and are listed under pseudonyms.
 

MIDDLE EAST

  Esta Felder writes and directs dramas and is training believers in theater. In the verbal-oriented culture of the Middle East, storytelling is an effective way to reach the hearts and minds of the people and change lives. She created a website that now has over 65 plays available in the local language. The plays are used by the monthly youth meetings, in regular church services, at camps, retreats, and conferences for a variety of purposes: to teach the youth, encourage and build up community, and reach out to non-believers.
 
  Judah and Rayna are learning language and building relationships in a strategic urban center. While serving as students, their vision is to help spark a people movement to Jesus in the city.
 
  A couple is serving as global consultants for mission and church leaders both in the RMM family and beyond. They are based in the Middle East for a year, mentoring emerging leaders in the region and also serving in other parts of the world where their experiences and gifts can be utilized.


NORTH AFRICA

 

Amos serves as an intern with RMM’s team in North Africa. He works in one of the largest cities in this region, teaching English as a second language.

 
 

Josiah, Sara and five children have recently relocated to a smaller town that is home to the ethnic and linguistic group that they have been preparing to live among. They continue to partner with local associations in giving health education, doing agricultural projects, and teaching English as needed. Their vision is to be a catalyst for development in rural and neglected areas of the country, all the while planting seeds of the good news of Jesus.

 
 

Eugene, Katrina and two children are learning language and building relationships with a vision to cultivate a movement to Jesus among an unreached people group. They are also working towards starting a business which will create natural connections in North Africa.

 
 

Raleigh, Opal and three children are jointly appointed by RMM and Virginia Mennonite Missions. They are building relationships and learning language as part of a long-term vision to encourage a people movement toward Jesus. They hope to partner with locals and other workers in agricultural development and teaching English.

Cora serves as a childcare provider for Raleigh and Opal's family. She is also studying the local languages and using her degree in education to point locals toward Jesus.

 
 

Wyatt is joining RMM’s team in North Africa with a desire to see the church established among those who have not yet heard the Gospel. During this initial phase he is pursuing different opportunities for future work while studying the local language and culture.

 


EAST ASIA

  William, Rebecca and four children deeply enjoy living in East Asia where they work with a coffee business. Their desire is to help people prosper both physically and spiritually.
 

SOUTH ASIA


 

Hiralal, Bindu, and Protap
This country in South Asia is very densely populated and the economy is heavily focused on agriculture. Many live in extreme poverty with high risk of infectious disease. The country suffers from chronic flooding during the wet season, and many of the nation’s poor rice farmers are forced to live in flood-prone areas. While most of the people are Muslim, about 10% are Hindu. RMM is working to support the efforts of Hiralel,* his wife Bindu,* and Protap,* who work to build leadership in a small but thriving church movement in these Hindu communities.
