A group of Indigenous pastors, trained by HHI, caught the vision of reaching the unreached of their country with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. They prayed, discussed and came up with a plan to do just that! One of the things they did was to go out at night, sit on a hill and watch for the fires to appear, which showed them where the villages were. They then plotted them on a map and then went out and visited each one.
One particular village they visited had never been influenced by Hinduism, Islam or Christianity, they were animists. Their income came from telling fortunes and making baskets. A pastor and his family moved into that village and planted a church. After a year they began to see converts. Today the church is growing in that little village!
More than 6,000 people groups currently classified as “unreached/unengaged” – a population of at least two billion people. Of that 6,000 people groups, 2,500 are in India. India has a population of 1.2 billion people, of which nearly 88% are still unreached. India has the largest number of unreached people groups of any country in the world!
South Asia is part of the 10/40 window, the area of the world between 10 and 40 degrees latitude, often referred to as the “resistant belt.” The Gospel has met with great opposition in that part of the world.
We believe that while there are many people groups who are unreached, they are not unreachable! Our goal and purpose is to engage in projects that shine the light of the Gospel into the darkness.
