With few or no cultural barriers to overcome, national missionaries can readily share the love of Christ to those who, unlike their western counterparts, have never heard. Although national missionaries do face many difficult obstacles as they take the message from village to village, they still have an enormous advantage over their coworkers from North America and other non-Asian lands.

National workers are being trained and sent to the mission fields of Asia every year through Gospel for Asia. But many more are needed if the millions in these countries are to hear the Gospel in our lifetime.
To date 67 major Bible colleges have been established in India, Nepal, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. Currently, nearly 9,000 young men and women are currently receiving training.
The quality of GFA students is incredible. Over 98 percent of our graduates minister in places where the love of Christ has never before been shared.
This incredible fruit from national missions work is being reproduced across Asia!
Today the reality is that 97 percent of the world's unreached lives in the 10/40 Window, a rectangular shaped area on our globe extending from West Africa to East Asia, from 10 degrees north to 40 degrees north of the equator. In this part of the world, millions live with little or no chance of ever hearing about the love of Christ. The Window also encompasses the majority of the world's Muslims, Hindus, and Buddhists.
The darkest of all areas within the 10/40 Window is Asia. Over 80,000 die every day in Asian countries without knowing about the love of Jesus Christ.
Although 97 percent of the world's unreached lives in the 10/40 Window, less than .05 percent of our total resources as the Church in the West are being sent to help share the Good News. Truly there is a staggering amount of work to do.
However, with national missionaries we can reach them!
Your part in winning Asia is just as important as that of the workers on the field. Although they are willing and eager to go, they are limited by the resources given to provide a small room to rent, food to eat, and Bibles and tracts to distribute.
Without support from Christians around the world, our brothers and sisters in Asia simply would not be able to complete the task of sharing Christ with every village and people group.
