Borderlands International is an intentionally small organization with a familial feel, supporting international and grassroots missionaries on a global scale.
The Sanchez Family
Serving in East Africa
For over a decade the Sanchez family has continually prayed, “Lord if there is a lost sheep trapped somewhere that others are unwilling to go, send us.” In southern Mexico they shared the Gospel with the unreached tribes of the Sierra Madres mountains. In Central and South America, they helped to rescue and restore victims of sex trafficking and street children. Most recently, they have partnered with the local indigenous church to reach victims of war and Muslims in refugee camps in northern Uganda. They’ve shared the heart of Jesus with ex child-soldiers, orphans, disillusioned Muslims, exploited children and anyone with a heart to listen. As many of the refugees they’ve served return to their home countries, this family is preparing to move northward into areas that are notoriously more hostile to the Gospel.
The Manase Family
Serving in North and East Africa
Christopher, Hanan and family are Sudanese and passionate about sharing the Gospel with everyone they meet, especially Muslims. They spent several years ministering in Muslim-majority Darfur, Sudan, founding the very first Christian church in that area’s history, and going on to plant several more. Following Christopher’s arrest and imprisonment by the Sudanese Security Intelligence, they were forced to move to the nation’s capital, Khartoum, and eventually to leave Sudan altogether. Even though the Sudanese government had confiscated everything they owned, the were undeterred as they began anew in Wau, South Sudan. There they reached 17 unreached villages and were discipling new Believers when violence from the civil war invaded their town, forcing them to again leave everything behind and flee to northern Uganda where they currently live. They continue preaching Christ in their current community and make regular trips to South Sudan and other restricted areas to share the Gospel with unreached Muslim tribes and encourage believers.
