Prayer Resource Introducing The Task Unfinished

What is The Task Unfinished?

29% of the world’s population are considered unreached, that’s over 2 billion people with little access to a church, a believer or a bible.

Currently, among East Asia’s peoples, over 667 million people are still unlikely to meet a follower of Jesus.

Billions of East Asians do not know Christ, and millions have little to no access to the gospel, a Christian church, or even a single believer. We believe God is calling us to focus prayer, people and resources to bring the hope of Christ to unreached peoples in East Asia and around the world.

The Task Unfinished is a call for Christians worldwide to take the gospel to places where Christ is unknown. We believe every person on earth needs to hear the good news, whether from believers in their people group, from reading or hearing the Bible in their own language, or from churches in or near their community.

In the lead up to the Global Hymn Sing on 25th June this month’s prayer resource will help you to consider the need for the gospel to go to all nations and help you to pray for five strategic areas of The Task Unfinished.
