Monday Missions Moment

Who's Missing?
Even after 2,000 years of Christian influence, more than 1.5 billion people are still missing out on the opportunity to hear the Gospel. They are hidden behind cultural, physical, political and language barriers to a Gospel witness.

Many of the world's people missing from God's family live in concentrated pockets of lostness. The pockets we are focusing on in 2009 comprise:

About 40 nations and 700 languages
34 percent Muslim
32 percent Hindu
13.5 percent Animist
6 percent Buddhist
6 percent unknown religion
4 percent nonreligious/other

Although there is a small percentage of Christian, the rest are a mix of ancestor worshipper, shamanist, Jewish, Taoist and Sikhist. About 80 unreached people groups still have no contact with the outside world.

Whose Mission?
The Bible says the lost are living in darkness, alienated from God and without hope in the world. But our obedience will give them hope. God calls every church and every believer to be on mission with Him to break down the barriers. Learn the ways you and your church can be on mission to help bring a lost people into God's family.
