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.

A new year often comes with the promise of new resolutions, things we want to change, or lessons we learnt and want to take with us into the new year. ⁠One of the biggest lessons most of us learnt in 2020, whether we wanted to or not, was to adapt

Global vs. Local Mission

As someone who has always loved to travel, see new places and serve far away communities, the idea of mission in my hometown or neighborhood is a perspective on mission that I perhaps had never really engaged with.

Serve Asia Coordinator Appreciation Post – Frederick Barker

Hi, my name is Frederick Barker and I am the Serve Asia Coordinator for the UK. I have been serving since September 2019, and although it has been an unusual first year in the role, I feel extremely blessed to be part of such a caring and thoughtful community. I have learnt many lessons in this role.

Going on Mission When I Least Expected It

I never would’ve thought that I would go on mission. It was never a part of my plan. I was comfortable at home, I wanted control over my life and do the things I wanted to do and moving overseas to spread the gospel was the last thing on my mind. That all changed when I went on a two-week trip to South Thailand.

Bible College & Short Term Mission Trips

Going to Thailand really made clear to me why I started studying theology in the first place, to serve God and help to build his church wherever he will send me. My time there not only motivated me for my studies, but it also taught me a lot of things about Thailand and working in a cross-cultural team. But above all, I learned a lot about God, his faithfulness to his people and about prayer.

Does the Field Director spend Christmas riding around in a Santa suit?

Many Taiwanese think that Christmas is all about Santa and gifts. It might seem odd that Christians would do anything that seems to support this. One Taiwanese friend asked me if “Sheng Dan lau Gong Gong” – the old man of Christmas was God’s younger brother. He certainly looks like one of the Taiwanese gods. […]

Serve Asia Coordinator Appreciation Post – Trish Bekker

Hi, my name is Trish Bekker and I am the Serve Asia Coordinator for Southern Africa. My husband and I worked with OMF in Asia for nine years, first in Thailand and then in Singapore. During this time we often hosted Serve Asia workers,  both individuals and teams. We so valued and appreciated these trips. Even though they were hard work for us as hosts, we loved seeing how Serve Asia workers grew in their faith.
