Expand the Reach of the Gospel

It still seems unfathomable that large portions of the world’s population remain unreached with the Gospel…

Take a look at the map above.  The red dots indicate the locations of identifiable people groups with at least 5,000 people that have yet to be reached with the message of God’s love and forgiveness through Jesus Christ.

“How can it be,” people are inclined to ask, “that after two centuries the work of the Great Commission is not yet completed?”

It’s a valid question.  What is shocking is the sheer number of unreached people groups — and the total population — of unreached peoples across the globe.  According to the Alliance for the Unreached, nearly 3 BILLION people have yet to hear the Gospel message.

That’s why Bibles For The World is part of the movement by the Alliance for the Unreached to engage more churches and individuals in the cause of the Great Commission.  Sadly, a recent survey indicated that fewer than 40% of Christians are not certain what “the Great Commission” is — they couldn’t identify the verses of Scripture that record Jesus’ final command to “go and make disciples of all nations…” (Matt. 28-19).

June 9 was the third annual observance of the International Day for the Unreached.  Please take a moment to visit the Alliance’s website (http://alliancefortheunreached.org) and view the brief special video that was produced for this year’s observance.  You’ll be challenged by what you see and hear.  Then join all of us at Bibles For The World in praying that God continues to open doors for the Gospel in the dark areas of the world where the Light of Jesus Christ is so desperately needed.

Is Bibles For The World’s Child Sponsorship Ministry In India in Danger?

Recent developments in India have had consequences for a number of ministry groups that have outreaches to Indian people.  The most visible of these is Compassion International, which was recently forced to withdraw its support for some 148,000 children sponsored by Compassion partners.

What does this mean for Bibles For The World?

The news in India isn’t completely dire. For more than 50 years, Bibles For The World, headquartered in Colorado Springs, has provided a sponsorship program to assist children living in poverty in India. While our program differs quite a bit from that offered by other ministries, we have continued to provide help and hope throughout the turmoil Compassion has experienced during the past year — and there are no concerns at this time that our program is in jeopardy.

Bibles For The World’s “Partner Parents” program matches children in grades K-12, and even college and seminary students, with partners in the United States and Canada who provide for tuition, books, uniforms, shoes and basic health care in one of our three dozen Christian schools across northeast India. Older students attend Trinity College & Seminary, located in Sielmat, in the Manipur state of NE India. Currently, some 2,300 young people are sponsored — but there are at least 7,000 who are on waiting lists.

The Indian government places a high value on education — and that is what we deliver through accredited, high-quality Christian education overseen by Indian nationals. Our Partner Parents program is designed to promote lasting relationships between children and their sponsors.

Of course, we grieve for the loss of Compassion’s help to those in India who are in desperate need. However, we believe people should know there are still ministries, like Bibles For The World, that continue to provide opportunities for people to make a difference through their sponsorship of young people in India.
