It is very hard for Christians living in countries like America to grasp the destitute need of some people groups to hear the gospel when we have so many churches available to us. With approximately 450,000 churches in the USA, there is ample opportunity for persons to hear the gospel one way or another.
In contrast to this, consider the TOP TEN largest unreached people groups in the world. Look at the list below and ask, ‘why has this number of people in these groups had no substantial witness to the gospel or established churches?’
1. Shaikh in Bangladesh 135,300,000
2. Japanese in Japan 120,700,000
3. Shaikh in India 89,200,000
4. Yadav (Hindu) in India 62,500,000
5. Turk in Turkey 55,400,000
6. Chamar (Hindu) in India 54,800,000
7. Han Chinses, Ziang in China 38,300,000
8. Sunda in Indonesia 37,600,000

Will you join us in prayer for God to send laborers into His harvest field (Luke 10:2)? “How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!”” (Romans 10:14–15).
