I would ask those who read this blog to be in prayer for a mission team that just arrived in India.
They will be working with missionaries in an area where there are 54,000 cities, towns, and villages. 48,000 of those have no Christians and no missionaries to tell them of the good news of the gospel of King Jesus. In that context, I recently tracked down 30 of the largest unreached and unengaged people groups in the world. The numbers are staggering. Please consider taking a moment to read through the list, focusing on the massive numbers of people who have little or no opportunity to hear the gospel. Unless something changes, most of them will never encounter a church, a Christian, or a Bible.
|Arab, Saudi-Hijazi||Saudi Arabia||8,207,000|
|Arab, Saudi-Najdi||Saudi Arabia||10,943,000|
|Azerbaijani, Azeri Turk||Iran||14,711,000|
Will we pray? Will we give? And… who will go? We truly should pray not, “Lord, should I go?” No, we should rather pray, “Lord, why should I stay!!”
