Some wish to live within the sound of church or chapel bell.
I want to run a rescue shop within a yard of hell.

We are looking for people who will join our Monthly Prayer and Financial Support Team by faithfully giving to Within Reach Global, to help us get to the least reached people groups of Southeast Asia.

Would you consider making a monthly donation? Your hand outstretched, clutching tightly to the rope from which we are suspended inside this goldmine of souls, will be a powerful partnership to bring the gospel to the uttermost parts of the earth.

I have seen the dark caverns of the unreached world. There is a goldmine of souls in Southeast Asia. A sprawling sphere, shimmering with faint glimmers of hope, glimpses of countless opportunities for the gospel.

“It seems as deep as the center of the earth. Who will venture to explore it?” The voice of William Carey resounded from the back of the room in the year 1793: “I am willing to be lowered into the darkness, to venture down into that mine to dig, but remember, you must hold the ropes!” 

For nearly 2 decades, I have spent countless hours on rough roads, traveling to rural villages, inhaling the black soot of smoky fire pits in the homes of unreached people groups like the Wa and Dai and Lahu, Yao, Miao and Yi.

My wife and I pioneered a ministry called Within Reach Global. Over the years, we have shared the gospel to thousands of unreached peoples and Chinese college students. Together with our missionary team, we have discipled and baptized new believers, trained them for leadership, established outreach centers and planted indigenous churches.

The people we have reached are but a few of the myriads of souls in the goldmine of Asia.

There are many more to be found. Lower us down into this goldmine! We will plunge our hands into the dirty depths to dig, if only you will hold the rope. 

You see, people are waiting at the other end of our obedience.

As you join the Within Reach Global Monthly Prayer & Financial Support Team, we commit to keep you updated on how you can pray for the unreached, and how your donations are blessing the people we are reaching out to.

We commit to be diligent to fulfill the vision and mission God has given us, and be faithful stewards of the financial donations given to this ministry.

OUR VISION: to honor God by reaching unreached people groups in the 10/40 Window with the Christian gospel.

OUR MISSION: We accomplish our vision by trailblazing to places where there is no presence of the gospel, discipling, training and partnering with local believers, establishing outreach centers, planting churches, and releasing church plants to reach their own people groups.
