Although much has been accomplished for Christ in the last 2000 years, Asia continues to be the most challenging continent in terms of evangelism.
Consider the following staggering statistics:
- Asia contains 60% (or 3/5) of the entire population of the world
- Asians speak more than 1500 different languages
- The greatest number of unreached peoples is found in Asia. Although one out of four people in the world consider themselves Christian only six out of 100 people are Christians in Asia
- There is one Christian worker to 1,000 people in North America and one Christian worker to 80,000 people in Africa, however, there is only one Christian worker to 180,000 people in Asia!
- Many Asians live below the poverty line and do not have access to basic infrastructure
