LDI is bridging the gap
As the world changes, traditional cross-cultural ministry of the last century is not the model that is emerging post-pandemic. In fact, most countries are not open to traditional missions, even while BTCP estimates three million pastors around the world are untrained.
LDI helps bridge the gap in key regions in Asia and North America by training both national and cross-cultural workers who are called to overseas ministry.
"My cross-cultural training with LDI had been the densest 3 months of my life so far. I was closely guided from the application process until my arrival at Bangkok. Expectations were set and had been met (even surpassed) as I began working with LDI's ministry partners.
Through LDI's unconventional approach to ministry I have learned how to be truly culture-sensitive while maintaining my focus on leading people to Jesus Christ.
My wife and I were able to attend a 3 week LDI training for the purpose of being equipped as missionaries in Asia. We found that this training equipped us for living and working cross culturally, sharpened our thinking regarding our ministry strategy, and encouraged us relationally and spiritually.
LDI does a great job of meeting missionaries where they are at and helping them take the next steps in their development. We remain grateful for this time of equipping!
