Unreached People Groups! This year, our Missions Conference will focus on the need to reach people who have not yet been reached with a clear presentation of Jesus Christ. Our goal is that all of us will be challenged to pray, give, and go to reach the unreached. And while we will focus on the 10/40 Window, we cannot forget the millions of unreached people who live in the United States.
The Apostle John wrote, “And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation” (Revelation 5:9). This Scripture tells us that God will be worshipped throughout eternity by people from every ethnicity and from every language. And God has entrusted us with the responsibility to take His gospel to all of these people—from Jerusalem to the uttermost.
Take time to prepare your heart for this conference. Would you pray that our hearts would be soft to whatever next step God has for us, whether that be giving or going? All of us should surrender to be involved at some level. Second, would you pray for our schools as we endeavor to train the following generations for this great task—Milford Christian Academy, Biblical School of World Evangelism, and FirstBible School of Translation? Each of these schools are crucial for fulfilling our mission to prepare messengers who will deliver the message of God’s Word to the world.
