SIU has a way to change this. SIU has real, active, indigenous partnerships on the ground right now in some of the most unreached places of the world, such as Southeast Asia.
According to the global missions tracking agency Joshua Project, the 11 countries of Southeast Asia are home to 1,824 different people groups. Of these groups, 718 (about 40%) are unreached.
That’s approximately 331 million people in Southeast Asia who have never heard the gospel.
These people primarily belong to oral cultures. That means, they learn and communicate through oral means—such as stories, drama, and song—rather than traditional, Western literacy-based means.
SIU’s partners, trained in our orality-based strategy of making Christ known, are making inroads into these people groups!
But we have a long way to go! Our partners need funding to train more local believers how to effectively communicate God’s message to unreached, orality-based people groups.
Recently, we were blessed—and challenged—by a generous foundation. The foundation has pledged to match every dollar given to SIU’s work in Southeast Asia by year end 2 to 1, up to $40,000.
That means, if we can raise $40,000 from caring friends like you, the foundation will contribute another $80,000 to train indigenous partners to take the gospel to people who have never heard it before and communicate it in a way that resonates with their hearts.
As we approach the end of 2018 we know you will have many opportunities to be generous with all that the Lord has provided. We ask your prayerful consideration in joining us to reach the unreached in Southeast Asia with a generous year-end gift to help meet this amazing foundation challenge. Your gift will not just be doubled—it will be tripled!
