Lost Sheep Still Need To Be Found

Around the world today, we hear reports of more people than ever coming to Christ: more than 28 million per year! In Latin America, it is estimated that 18,000 are coming to Christ each day. [“Table C,”IBMR, p.30, line 40]

Missions leaders report that there is now a Christian presence in every political nation; [David B. Barrett and Todd M, Johnson, World Christian Trends, ed. Christopher R Guidry and Peter F. Crossing (Pasadena, CA: Williams Carey Library, 2001), 52.] however, there is much to do before we see representatives from “every people, tribe, nation, and tongue” before the throne of God. Over 6500 people groups (ethnos) remain unevangelized. [Joshua Project, “Global Progress.”] [Page 11]
