We, at COTARI, believe that reaching peoples of other religions and persuading them to come to Jesus Christ with the gospel is the most important last step in fulfilling the Great Commission. However, throughout the world, Christianity has great difficulty penetrating any countries dominated by so-called great religions of the world. We can see this in Islamic countries, India, South East Asian countries where Buddhism is dominated, and even in free countries such as Japan and Taiwan where nothing can stop Christian missionaries from evangelizing people there. Here is a puzzling dilemma: Christians endeavor to evangelize people in those areas, but people over there are not willing to listen to Christian messages. Why? Why are missionaries after missionaries failing to reach peoples of other religions? Why do the conventional methods of evangelism and mission fail to deliver the message of love of God to these peoples? This is why COTARI was founded in 2010. We need to find out what approaches could appeal to peoples of other religions. COTARI is performing research to find the approaches appropriate for reaching peoples of other religions. For this purpose, COTARI is planning to provide interpretations of other religions’ scriptures through the Bible, and to hold mission seminars to discuss these research results, to mention a couple of COTARI projects. In order to carry out these projects, resources are needed.
Now we ask you to consider supporting the efforts of COTARI. Of course, you have no obligation to do so unless you feel that you want to help COTARI in your heart. Personally, I felt that my life was purified whenever I read the Word of God and I felt joy in my heart whenever I worked for the Lord. The Lord gave me the life mission to reach out for peoples of other religions. I cannot forget the voice I heard and the vision He showed me! The ministry I have through COTARI gives me joy in my life.
