What are we doing to reach the lost?

Unreached people groups are ethnic groups without means of evangelizing their own people. Researchers for the U.S. Center for World Mission have identified as many as 10,000 cultural groups which could be considered unreached.

My son copied these figures off a site and gave me today...

How sad! And we sit at home content with gathering together with church people two or three times a week in our nice air conditioned places with padded pews. God help us to reach the world!!

True that there are many unreached peoples. Keep going for them! In my area of the world many have heard of Jesus. Many go to Church. Yet I have hardly met but just a few spiritual minded people and only one that claims to be baptized into Jesus name and filled with the Spirit.

Much missionary work needs to be done here (many places in USA) also.

Yes, that is very true.

I agree.

We have two daughter works. One is Spanish and the other is somewhat international - the area that we live in, we have many different nationalities represented. And along comes the different beliefs that the people have been schooled in. It is very challenging, but very rewarding to see these people come into the Truth!

Occasionally we have service at noon and the two daughter churches will combine with the mother church and we all have church together - of course it is bilingual (and sometimes it has to be trilingual) and we have potluck afterwards - it is awesome. Matter of fact, we will be all together tomorrow.

We try to do all we can to reach them. We advertise in the papers, doorknock, canvass their neighborhood with fliers and teach home bible studies - sometimes their work schedules are hard and we have to work around it. We hold a church service on Sundays and home meetings once during the week.

On a different note, the one thing that I have noticed, going into the homes of these people is that they may not have hardly any furniture, no decorations on the wall, sometimes no matresses to sleep on, limited clothes in the closets, not much food in cabinets, BUT they ALL have TVs

I hope we are doing everything we can to reach them!
