The great need for mission outreach in the 10/40 Window is being featured in the cover story and editorial of the March 2013 issue of the Gleaner, which is published by the North Pacific Union Conference of Seventh-day Adventists.
Titled “Gospel Outreach: Sharing Jesus With the 10/40 Window,” the article emphasizes the privilege and responsibility of each Christian to have a part in sharing the gospel on a global scale—not just locally. An estimated 41 percent of the world’s population hasn’t heard of Jesus. Of those unreached, virtually all—97 percent—live in the 10/40 Window.
Despite these statistics, less than 2 percent of Christian mission giving goes to spread the gospel in this area of the world. Instead, nearly all evangelism resources focus on winning people who’ve already had a chance to hear about Jesus.
The article concludes with ways each of us can make a difference right now:
- Pray. Be a daily prayer warrior on behalf of the 10/40 Window. Ask the Lord of the harvest for more workers.
- Tell. Be an ambassador and let others know of the needs in the 10/40 Window.
- Adopt. You can be a missionary without leaving home by adopting an indigenous Bible worker in the 10/40 Window.

This month’s Gleaner editorial, “The Harvest Is Great,” by Larry Dodds, Gospel Outreach board chairman, also highlights work in the 10/40 Window.
