Muslims in South Asia, numbering more than 500 million, still remain virtually untouched by the message of Jesus. They still have not heard about His life, death, and resurrection. The God of the Bible has not forgotten about Muslims in these hard-to-reach areas; He is raising up team leaders and their teams who are willing to make the sacrifices required to live in extreme conditions.
We look forward to the day when our work is unnecessary because Jesus is being worshipped by members of every tribe, tongue, and nation (Revelation 5:9). Until then, we keep asking ourselves and potential team leaders:
"How can the first fellowships of Muslim-born believers begin where none currently exist?”
