“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 everything I have commanded you…” Matthew 28:18, CSB”

Today, there are around 3.2 billion people in the world who have yet to hear the gospel. This staggering number underscores the immense need for Christian outreach, especially in regions known as the 10/40 Window. Coined by missionary strategist Luis Bush, the term refers to an area spanning from 10 to 40 degrees north latitude, covering North Africa, the Middle East, and Asia. It’s home to two-thirds of the global population, including 90% of the world’s poorest, facing significant socioeconomic challenges and limited access to Christian resources.

While less than 1% of these unreached people reside in the Americas, it’s crucial for Christians to consider ventures into the 10/40 Window and beyond. This isn’t to diminish efforts elsewhere but to emphasize the critical need to spread the message of Jesus where it’s needed most. As Pastor David highlighted, we are called to be a light to the entire world—our neighbors, colleagues, and those in far-reaching corners still waiting to hear the good news. God can utilize each of us, regardless of our skills, talents, or backgrounds, to fulfill His plan of reaching everyone with His love and grace.

Let us heed the call today to step out in faith, whether in our local communities or across oceans, and share the hope and love of Christ with those who have yet to hear. Alongside our actions, let’s commit to fervent prayer for the hearts and minds of those who have not yet encountered Jesus. Let’s also lift up in prayer those who have already been called to serve in challenging areas like the 10/40 Window and across the globe. May God strengthen them, protect them, and provide for their needs as they boldly proclaim His name. Finally, let’s pray for God to reveal our own part in His mission, whether through prayer, support, or going ourselves, that we may obediently follow His leading and contribute to His kingdom work.

Together, through prayer and action, we can make a profound impact and bring light to the darkest corners of the earth.
