Reaping the Harvest
Partners and friends, we want to thank you for your donations that has been the key that has opened the door to send us to the most outer parts of the world spreading the Gospel.
Jesus Himself said "Go" therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age. Matthew 28:19-20
Jesus has called us to "GO" into some of the most extreme parts of the world called the 10/40 Window. The 10/40 Window is to refer to those regions of the eastern hemisphere, plus the European and African part of the western hemisphere, located between 10 and 40 degrees north of the equator, a general area that was purported to have the highest level of socioeconomic challenges and least access to the Christian message and Christian resources on the planet.
The 10/40 Window highlights these three elements: an area of the world with great poverty and low quality of life, combined with lack of access to Christian resources.The Window forms a band encompassing Saharan and Northern Africa, as well as almost all of Asia (West Asia, Central Asia, South Asia, East Asia and much of Southeast Asia). Roughly two-thirds of the world population lives in the 10/40 Window. The 10/40 Window is populated by people who are predominantly Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, Animist, Jewish or Atheist. Many governments in the 10/40 Window are formally or informally opposed to Christian work of any kind within their borders.
The Apostle Paul said that through mighty signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of God; so that from Jerusalem, and round about unto Illyricum, I have fully preached the gospel of Christ. Yea, so have I striven to preach the gospel, not where Christ was named, lest I should build upon another man's foundation:
But as it is written, To whom he was not spoken of, they shall see: and they that have not heard shall understand. Romans 15:19-21
As we "Go" into the Nations to utter the words of God and to emit the sound of the Holy Spirit, we ask for your support and prayers.
Thank you for your support and prayers
