Asking Jesus the question

So the men came to Jesus and said, “John the Baptist sent us to You to ask, ‘Are You the Expected One (the Messiah), or should we look for someone else?’” – Luke 7:20

Jesus answered,  not with logical proofs, but by a demonstration of power in curing the sick and casting out evil spirits.

The Western world no longer provides explanations for questions, because many Western missionaries have no answers within their Christian worldview.  What is a Christian theology of ancestors, or animals and plants, of local spirits and spirit possession, and of principalities, powers and rulers of the darkness of this world?  What does one say when new tribal converts want to know how the Christian God tells them where and when to hunt, whether they should marry this daughter to that young man, or where they can find the lost money?
