A True Story of Peril and Mission
in Southeast Asia

The Faith Road

Do you want to get a good sense of the heart of Mekong Multiply?

You will do so by reading The Faith Road, the book written by its founder, Eliot Branch. From the back cover:

Eliot longs for every lost tribe to hear the good news of Jesus. He knows he could never do it alone—he is just an ordinary man from rural Missouri struggling to learn the language and culture of this tiny landlocked country in Southeast Asia. After hearing God’s voice to consider a greater vision, Eliot partners with both expatriate and national missionaries to launch one of the most cutting-edge mission efforts in the world today. But fruitfulness comes with a cost. A dark enemy and corrupt authorities stand in the way. What will it take to finish the task?

The Faith Road is one man’s faith journey from the unimpressive to the miraculous, and the true stories of peril and persecution he and his partners encounter along the way. It is a testament to how God uses ordinary people to accomplish his mission when they step out in faith, not trusting in their own ability, but relying upon his. Follow Eliot, Nick, and the team of national missionaries as they attempt to stay one step ahead of the police to reach the remaining lost peoples at the ends of the earth.

"I beg you to hear my heart: this is not a book about missions for missionaries. This is a book for the church. This is a message for all Christians. This is a story for you.”

Nik Ripken, author of “The Insanity of God”

"If you have always stayed in your comfort zone, this book will challenge and goad you to ask God where he wants you to share the love of Christ. I highly recommend this book.”

Valerie Elliot Shepard,
daughter of Jim and Elisabeth Elliot
and author of “Devotedly”

Eyes on Jesus,
Eyes on the Unreached.

"He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance."

 2 Peter 3:9b

"And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come."

Matthew 24:14

Connecting these two verses shows us that God’s eyes are on the unreached, and if our eyes are on him, then our eyes will also be drawn to the unreached. We, too, desire that none perish but that all hear the good news and have an opportunity to repent and be saved.

Serving Shine Sumatra

Mekong Multiply is launching this effort to mobilize Indonesian national missionaries to reach the remaining unreached people groups on the island of Sumatra with the good news of Jesus, to plant reproducible churches, and to multiply disciples, igniting movements to Christ.

Serving Southeast Asia

Mekong Multiply’s region of focus is on the eleven nations that lie south of China and east of India. This part of the map is often overlooked but makes up one of the spiritually darkest parts of the world. The region is dominated by three of the world’s major religious blocs—Buddhism, Animism, and Islam—with Indonesia being the most populous Muslim nation on earth. Southeast Asia also has two of the world’s five remaining communist countries in Laos and Vietnam. The unreached people of these nations divide into more than 700 tribes with a population totaling over 330 million, exceeding that of the entire United States.

Serving The Final 58

Mekong Multiply helped launch this effort to mobilize Lao national missionaries to reach the remaining unengaged unreached people groups in Laos. National missionaries are being equipped as evangelists and church planters and sent out from as many as six different clandestine sending bases in this restricted access nation. Despite the prospect of persecution and arrest, the gospel has penetrated hundreds of unreached villages and tribes as a result of this effort.
