This is an Open Invitation to prayer leaders & networks with a heart for the completion of the Great Commission. We invite you to step in and LINK together for the sake of the unreached…
It is estimated that of the 7.3 billion people alive in the world today, 1.2 to 1.4 billion have never heard the gospel of Jesus Christ. According to Joshua Project.net, there are approximately 16,000 unique people groups in the world with about 6,600 of them considered unreached. The vast majority (95%) of these least reached groups exist in the 10/40 window and are oral people groups.
In praying for the Oral & Oral Bible-less, we want to pray not only to make just a convert but a disciple of Jesus. That requires the Scriptures to be available in the mother tongue. Wycliffe Bible Translators reports that of the approximately 6,800+ living languages across the world today, about 1,800 have definite translation need. That means for mother-tongue speakers of those 1,800 languages no Scripture exists at all. They may have limited access to trade or major languages, but no access in their heart language. Of course, the languages with the larger number of speakers have been translated, but even many millions do not have the Scriptures in their mother-tongue.
