“San Diu Boy”

“San Diu Boy” 2012, by Unknown *

Their Lives:  They are rice farmers and fishermen and also breed fish.  They make tiles and bricks.  They practice blacksmithing and basket making. The San Diu also manufacture the no-wheel "quet" cart drawn by a buffalo to transport goods.

The husband is the head of the family. The children take the father’s family name and only the son can inherit.  The parents decide when their children should marry.

Who?  What? Where?

"In a nutshell" as they say, SEAMIST works in South East Asia!  We plant churches in South East Asia.  We try to focus all our efforts and resources on reaching the least reached peoples in South East Asia.

What does "least reached" mean?  It simply means the people groups that have few or no workers reaching out to them, few or no churches or believers in Jesus Christ.  These would be the most needy of all people in the world!

Our workers are trained to use contextual methods to share the good news.  We just want everyone to know about Jesus!  Our goal is always to leave behind a New Testament church.
