“Therefore, prepare your minds for action… fix your hope completely on the grace to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.”
1 Peter 1:13
All Hands on Deck!
During World War II, not only frontline soldiers joined the effort. Throughout the entire U.S., families, businesses, churches, and society as a whole mobilized in order to win the war. Men went to fight, women took their positions in factories and built airplanes and tanks, children collected metal to be used in the factories, people rationed tires for military use, and even the color green was reserved to dye the soldier’s uniforms.
To reach the remaining people groups, all of God’s people must do their part to share God’s global vision personally. Everyone has a part to play.
1. Advocacy – Letting people know about God’s great intention, his heart for the nations and the plight of millions of people. Speaking out and increasing prayer support for the unreached.
2. Preparing People – Equipping people and providing opportunities to get ready for action.
3. Organizing Resources – Gathering information, equipment, and financial support that will contribute to benefit the unreached.
10/40 Connections has developed a variety of ways you and your group can raise needed funds to share the Good News with the least reached. Use these ideas (or your own creativity) to make a difference in someone’s life!

Jesus said, "Pray the Lord to send out laborers, for the harvest is plentiful, but he workers are few." That is the mission of 10/40 Connections – to follow the example of Jesus by connecting the body of Christ, equipping believers, and engaging the least reached.
