Gospel Push to South Asian Villages

Share the gospel, village to village, door to door, person by person.
Imagine one-third of the US population crowded into a space half the size of Texas, and you will have a vision of the size and density of this South Asian state. Yet, hearts are open to Christ here, and the harvest is ready. A team of long-term workers is training local believers to reap a harvest of souls in unreached areas using an evangelism strategy Jesus employed with His disciples.

Using methods described by Jesus in Luke 10, small groups of IMB workers, national pastors and local believers go to unreached villages seeking “person(s) of peace” and evangelizing households. As a result of these training and gospel sharing efforts, hundreds of people have heard the gospel, and Gospel Push teams follow up on them every month.

The approximate monthly cost for a Gospel Push group to be trained is $300. This cost does not include financial support for pastors and leaders that participate in these efforts as we simultaneously train them in self-supported approaches to ministry. Your gift to the Gospel Push project will underwrite the training costs, outreach efforts, church health assessments, and evangelism and discipleship materials written in local languages.

Just as Jesus spent time with believers and invited them into a discipleship relationship, each Gospel Push effort engages in gospel sharing in an unreached village and then disciples new believers through regular Bible studies. The teams also train local believers to lead these new churches toward health and growth. The goal of each Gospel Push effort is urgent and broad gospel proclamation, intentional discipleship and healthy church formation in every village of this highly populated state. Your partnership through prayer and giving will fan the flames of the gospel as they spread rapidly in this place where hearts are open. Give today to send out the gospel through Gospel Push into unreached villages throughout this South Asian state!

Location

South Asian Peoples

South Asian peoples live within a kaleidoscope of colors, a cacophony of sounds, and a buffet of flavors that ignite the senses and warm the soul. This enigmatic region is the birthplace of four world religions but is also home to the world's highest concentration of lostness.

The 1.6 billion people of South Asia are concentrated in an area less than half the size of the USA. Muslims and Hindus comprise the overwhelming religious majority. Every week 225,000 South Asians die, most without Christ. Yet there are glimmers of gospel hope. Through the work of local Christians and foreign workers God is bringing South Asians to faith in Jesus, the church is growing, and stories of Christ’s redeeming power are emerging from the field.

More than a billion South Asian eyes are searching for hope. Pray for long-term workers and their local partners who share the love of Christ daily. Ask God to use their efforts to create a movement of his Spirit across the city and throughout countries and islands of South Asia!
