On Friday at Desiring God we heard an incredible report of what God is doing through the global church. Several staff had travelled to the Lausanne Congress a couple of weeks ago, and we finally had the chance to hear from a few of them.
Included in their report was a list of the 632 unengaged, unreached people groups with populations over 50,000. “Unengaged” means these people groups have NO full-time workers involved in evangelism and church planting.
If I counted correctly, 52 of those groups represent deaf people in various parts of the world. Regardless of whether deafness is considered a disability or a culture, please pray that God would raise up workers for the millions of deaf people around the world who currently have no access to the gospel.
You can read more about all the unreached people groups at Finishing the Task.
