For the last 8 years the M Family has lived in East Asia learning language and forming relationships with their target group the KT people. Their passion and goal is to glorify God by planting joy filled, God centered, reproducing churches, among the KT people in Jesus Christ.
The KT’s are an unreached and unengaged people group. Among the million and half KT’s only 0.05% are Christian. The M Family desires to move up to the main KT area (a 12 hour drive from where they currently live) to be able to work and live among these people. Although there are many KT’s living in the Capital City, where the M family currently lives, it would be ideal for them to eventually live in the Jade Tree area where the majority of the KT’s live.
Currently, the government does not allow foreigners to live in the Jade Tree area. This means that as of now there are no missionaries living among these people. It has become increasingly clear that having a legitimate money making business in the Capital City will be key when seeking permission from the government to open a branch of this business in Jade Tree, which will give them the ability to live there full time.
