THE 10/40 WINDOW
That’s nearly 1 in 10 people worldwide. Or, twice the population of the United States. The majority of these people live in the 10/40 window, an area of the world where Jesus' name has never been proclaimed. Not only does no access to the gospel mean there are no churches or no translations of the Bible in the national language, but the lack of access means souls are going without hearing.
But access to the gospel means salvation - a new opportunity to life.
3.15 billion people in the world live without access to the gospel.
The 10/40 window is a rectangular area which covers North Africa, the Middle East, and Asia. The vast majority of the world’s Hindus, Muslims, and Buddhists live within the 10/40 window, and is home to some of the largest people groups in the world.
The 10/40 is the least evangelized part of the world, and our work is right in the middle of it.
