I can still remember the day I sat down with Uncle Ralph to discuss how "cell life" and all that he had written could fit into the worldview of an unreached Muslim context where open celebrations were not possible. That was 10 years ago and the journey I have been on has convinced me more each day that basic community life can be done in cross-cultural settings and that movements can be launched among the unreached. We have made lots of mistakes but are learning new ways to make disciples and multiply His church.
Interested? Would like to hear from you

I just wanted to say hey. I have a sister-in-law whos family is from Tallin. She and my brother live in Ortonville, Michigan.
My wife and I started a cell in our home in January. We have had about 30 people come since then, and have had 8 people accept Christ during that time. I am learning about G12 based cell church planting and the ins and outs thereof. Much to learn.
I will pray for you.

We are starting our first cell on Monday here in Tallinn, Estonia. We have lived here for two years (originally from Texas), learning the language and making contacts. Under pressure from our sponsors back in the US, we spent the first couple of years trying to establish a PBD church, but not much has happened there.
Please pray for us.

The basic foundational community in Scripture (oikos) we call a cell. Focusing on the nourishment of the body by feeding the cell works in every culture and with people from every religion.
In fact, I have found that cell life is easier to teach and model with people from non-christian backgrounds! Is this what you have found in Europe and In SE Asia?

I know some people involved in planting house churches among people who converted to Christ from that religious bckground. A lot of missionaries in this country interested in unreached people groups are interested in house church or involved in it.

I plan to be a missionary in belgium before too long. I know that european minds are hard to invade with the Gospel, but do you think that a cell ministry could work there?
