Sending South Asians to the Unreached

Help spread the gospel among all unreached and unengaged people groups in South Asia.

South Asia still has nearly 1,000 Unreached and Unengaged People Groups (UUPGs) that have no churches and few, if any, believers. But God is moving across this area, raising up local evangelists and church planters who are ready to take the gospel to these hard-to-reach peoples. Your gift will support two-by-two teams of national missionaries deployed to target the remaining UUPGs. Each team consists of local missionaries who have cross-cultural church-planting training and who bear fruit in their own ministries. IMB personnel will provide ongoing coaching and support for these teams as they make disciples among the least-reached peoples in South Asia.

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!
