Do you know what we love about our passionate team of missionaries? They’re always gearing up to go anywhere, eat anything, sleep anywhere, do anything for the sake of the Gospel! They are concerned for the least reached people groups of the 10/40 Window and they are singular in their focus of taking the grace and glory of Jesus Christ to places it has never gone before!

Here’s a prime example. Watch this powerful video of a woman who has been hospitalized for nearly 6 months. She is from one of the most unreached regions of China. Oxygen tubes pump air into her nostrils while machines keep her heart pumping. She has stomach cancer. Our missionaries visited her in the hospital and instructed her husband to play worship music throughout the day. Miraculously, her strength is returning day by day!

In the midst of seeming darkness and distress, the Holy Spirit is there speaking words of life over her, singing comforting songs with heavenly intonations. The sound of Christian worship from a Gospel mp3 player fill the room. Our Chinese missionaries gifted this device to her family and it has served as a lifeline for this woman, her husband, and her children. “Please continue to pray for her full recovery,” our missionaries say. “We believe her healing will be a testimony to her whole community!”

So let’s reiterate. Why do we do what we do? Because the name of Jesus has not been heard in countless places around the globe, and we are certain about our calling to take the Gospel to places it has not been named, thus fulfilling the Great Commission. Here’s a little blurb about our niche in the missions world

“Most missions organizations have narrowed their focus toward large unreached people groups (populations of 25,000 and above). The reason is simple: it takes a lot of manpower and resources to create impact and see church planting movements happen, so a focus on reaching larger unreached people groups naturally sees bigger results. Sadly, however, thousands of smaller people groups (populations of 25,000 and below) are being overlooked and are still unengaged. So why focus on small unreached people groups? One major reason is that there are more small people groups than there are large people groups. At Within Reach Global, we are trailblazers and pioneers. It thrills us to fill in the gaps of the missions community, going to small unreached people groups that larger organizations cannot or will not target. Some of the ethnic people groups we target have a population of less than 2,000 people. We cannot imagine them slipping through the cracks of evangelistic efforts without a fight. We long to see the beauty of God’s creation as represented through every single unique tribe surrounding the throne in heaven, bringing their own style of worship to their Maker.”

Please pray with us about getting involved in reaching unreached people groups and bringing the Gospel to families and communities who are waiting for hope to arrive. Jesus is the answer! The Holy Spirit is in our midst! The Kingdom of God is here, ever beckoning us to join the holy calling of making known His great name among the nations.

Thank you so much for your prayer and financial support! We are thrilled to work with you to advance God’s Kingdom in regions that have previously never had access to the Christian Gospel.
