Robert Finley, saw that the native Christian leaders of each country-believers who spoke the language, knew the customs, and lived with the people they were trying to reach-were completely capable of evangelizing the lost and taking the gospel to their corners of the earth. He returned to North America, determined to arouse the churches about the effectiveness of indigeous missions. Citing Acts 2:5-11 and 8:1-4, he said the best way to plant a Christian witness in closed countries was to reach people from foreign lands when they were away from home, then, when they return to serve Christ in their homelands, we must get behind them with intercessory prayer and financial assistance.
