State of the World 2009

I just got my copy of the Mission Maker magazine put out by the fine people at STEM International. They include their annual state of the world statistics which we use in our summer missions program to teach people about the remaining task. The biggest thing that caught my eye is that worldwide, there are 13,444 frontier missionaries going to the unreached (0.0006% of all Christians). According to Joshua Project, there are 6,653 people groups that remain unreached with the gospel. I got inspired to begin blogging and start an online conversation about what the church both in North America and abroad can do about seeing the least reached people groups of the world reached with the love of Christ in our generation. I hope that many people from all over the body of Christ will join the discussion as it is going to take an army of individuals and churches across denominations to come together and take seriously the command to go and make disciples among all nations.
