Sometimes the phrase unreached people groups can be very abstract. Afterall, it’s the 21st century. How could there really be people who have never heard of Jesus before?

As you’re driving your car down any given street, you will pass church after church. Turn on the TV and you’ll see a tele-evangelist preaching the gospel. At Starbucks you’ll hear a group of people chatting about last night’s Bible study.

So are there really unreached people groups anymore?

Believe it or not, there are millions of people who have never had the chance to hear the name of Jesus before. Southeast Asia is filled with them. There are no churches in the moutains where these unreached people groups live. They do not have access to TV or radio shows proclaiming the gospel. There are no Starbucks where people can chat about what God is really like.

Believe it or not, there are millions of people who have never had the chance to hear the name of Jesus before. Southeast Asia is filled with them.

Here at Within Reach Global we don’t think that’s fair. We believe it is God’s passion to include everyone in His salvation message. His heart burns for those who have yet to hear, and they need a witness.

Our passion is to go to these unreached tribes, announcing that God’s kingdom has come to them. That they are the ones for whom Jesus died. That true life transformation can only be found in a relationship with God.

So today as you are driving your car, or watching TV, or at Starbucks chatting with a freind about how God has touched your life, pause for a moment and think of God’s love. It encompasses the world. It is for every man, woman and child on earth. It is for those who have been forgotten in the 21st century, and are dying for meaning in their life.
