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.

The Task Unfinished News & Stories

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.

Investing in Interns (Video + Bonus Discussion Questions)

We invest in Taiwanese interns, who in turn invest their lives in the Taiwanese working class. Each year we receive Taiwanese seminary students as interns in our ministry teams.

Try Jesus instead!

As usual, we did prayer walking around our neighborhood in Taiwan yesterday. I gave an elderly lady a pamphlet which she refused. She said that she's a Buddhist and would throw away the pamphlet and waste our resources. I told her that even though she didn't want it, we could still be friends as we [...]

How One Month in Thailand Changed My View of Missions

I grew up in the church but never really knew a lot about mission. What was mission even? It was a term I used to hear from older people in my church. But to me, it was nothing more than this vague concept. Little did I know that I would step into this “mission world” a few years later and discover mission was actually something understandable, colorful and beautiful, something I could be a part of.
