The 10/40 Window
Over 97 percent of the world’s unreached people live in the 10/40 Window — a rectangular shaped area extending from West Africa to East Asia, from 10 degrees north to 40 degrees north of the equator. This window encompasses the majority of the world’s Muslims, Hindus, and Buddhists. The darkest of all areas within the 10/40 Window is Asia, where over 80,000 people die every day without knowing about the love of Jesus Christ.
1.35 Billion People Live In India
In this region of the world, millions live with little or no chance of ever hearing the Gospel. In fact, every year, India adds more people than any other nation. With the population growth of 1.2%, the country is predicted to have more than 1.53 billion people by the year 2030. With more than 600,000 villages in India that have never heard the Gospel, there are many opportunities to share the Good News.
The Great Harvest
It appears this is a time of great harvest in India and as the Lord has raised thousands of missionaries from within India itself. These missionaries are native, national-born Indians who have embraced the mission to share the Gospel with their people. The time has come to redeem God’s people from the bondage of sin and darkness and bring the unreached people to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.
