“The missionary question is not ‘Where are their unbelievers?’ And then send a missionary there. There are unbelievers everywhere!
The missionary question is, ‘Where are there peoples who do not have any Christians in them?’ Or don’t have a church strong enough to do the neighbor evangelism that we can do if we just want to do it. That’s the missionary question. That’s the question of peoples and nations. How many are there? How many are unreached?”
Over one billion people worldwide have no opportunity to hear the gospel.
Unapproachable, inaccessible in location or situation, untouched, untouchable, disconnected, unable to be met or out of touch. These are all words and descriptions given for yet another word: Unreached.
