The Unseen 1/4

The Unseen Quarter

Muslim, Buddhist, and Hindu peoples comprise around 3.3 billion people out of the world’s population of 7.25 billion. How can it be that only 3 percent of all Christians workers work among these peoples? If only 3% of all Christian workers work among them, then clearly 1/4 of the world’s population has no personal access to a follower of Christ. If most people come to faith through interacting with other believers, then how will these unreached have any chance to hear about what Christ has done for them? This is unbelievable at a time when international travel is so easy.

How can this be? It is because this 1/4 remains unseen by the Church. Being unseen, they remain uncared for. Yet, these are people whom God loves and for whom Christ died. So, what should our response be to this? Well, our first response should be making a commitment to see this statistic changed!

You are reading this webpage because you want to be involved in changing this. To help see this statistic changed there are five options open to each and everyone of us: 1) learn, 2) pray, 3) advocate, 4) give, and 5) go.

LEARN
First, learn more about the Unseen 1/4. To help you learn more, check out this blog post: https://www.interserveusa.org/the-unseen-quarter/   This post explains why we in Interserve want to get us all looking beyond what we can see from our own windows and learn why we are zeroing in on The Unseen Quarter.

Discovering the Unseen journal coverWe have released a new reflective study journal which can help you catch the vision for the unengaged and unreached peoples of the world. It is Discovering the Unseen. It’s designed for individual or group use and includes daily questions for individual reflection and weekly group-oriented activities. It is available from our Books and CDs page.

 

PRAY
Prayer is a bit of a mystery; but we all know that prayer changes things. God doesn’t want us to be spectatorsWorld Map in his agenda to bless the world, he wants our involvement! So, to help you have material to pray intelligently please go to this website. It gives daily updates about what to pray for in the areas where the Unseen 1/4 live: http://pray.interserve.org

ADVOCATE
Become an advocate for the Unseen 1/4 among your friends, your colleagues, your church. Remember, you are in a minority. Many in the Church simply do not see these 2+ billion people.
