Muslims and you...

I saw this blog on Desiring God. As Zambia is reported to become a Muslim nation in 10-12 years because of their aggressive evangelism, reaching Muslims has been on my heart. I thought this was a great opportunity for the rest of us to help reach Muslims with the good news of Jesus. Click on the 50 churches link to get the rest of the links.

50 Churches for Unreached Muslims

December 28, 2007 | By: Abraham Piper

Most of us are not called to leave our home and move our families around the world to minister to unreached peoples. But that means we are called to support those who do.

Frontiers is currently raising money to send 50 new teams to unreached Muslims. Their U.S. director, Bob Blincoe, writes in his latest newsletter,

In partnership with churches across America, Frontiers' goal is to send, in the next five years, new church planting teams to 50 "unengaged" Muslim people groups of 100,000 or more. ... By unengaged, I mean they are not only unreached, but entirely without any effective church planting work.

The money they raise will cover the costs of "recruiting, training, deployment, on-field supervision and coaching, member care, technology and communications support, and other vital services."

Any gifts given by the end of the year will be doubled by a matching grant.
