Unreached Peoples Are Disconnected From The Interconnectedness Of Daily Plane Flights March 4, 2014 Blog Share on Facebook Share Share on TwitterTweet Share on Google Plus Share Share on Pinterest Share Share on LinkedIn Share This incredible interactive website of air flight interconnectedness makes me think most about unreached people groups. Everyday there are half a million people on flights criss crossing the world. But notice the stark contrast of flights to/from areas home to the millions of people who have yet to hear of Jesus. Unreached peoples are unreached for a reason. They’re hard to reach. God, wake us up to do whatever it takes to reach them. — David Platt (@plattdavid) February 27, 2014 Zoom in to the 1040 Window. Where are the flights? Where are the trailblazers boarding planes for regions untouched by the gospel of Jesus? No doubt, right now, as you read this, there are a few trendsetting missionaries—passionate pioneers who long to see the gospel go where there is no Christian witness—hovering in the sky on their way to share the love of God. Pioneer missionaries are my heroes. They are few and far between. They are largely overlooked and forgotten. They are bearers of light bringing hope to the far edges of the planet. Notice how the host mentions the “uneven distribution” of the connectedness of these flights. It reminds me of the Great Imbalance of Global Missions, where there is only 1 missionary for every 278,431 people. As you or a loved one boards a plane bound to your favorite destination today, would you please pray that the Lord of the harvest will send more workers into his harvest field?
