Indonesia, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Turkey, and Kenya may be geographically small, but they have large populations. With nearly 800 million people living in just these five countries, more than one out of every ten souls on the planet lives within their boundaries.
FMI currently partners with scores of indigenous church planter and evangelists courageously serving in the world’s three largest Muslim-majority nations (Indonesia, Pakistan, and Bangladesh), the world’s largest nation unreached with the gospel (Turkey), and the lighthouse of gospel hope at the Muslim-dense Horn of Africa (Kenya).
FMI’s overseas partners face many challenges: About 840 different languages are spoken within these countries, Christians frequently face extreme discrimination and persecution, and poverty is rampant (especially for the marginalized Christians). But it is important to understand that even if a culture or government is closed to the gospel, in no way does that mean that individual hearts are closed. Nothing can stop the move of Jesus Christ’s Spirit as he calls men of every background to himself (John 12:32)!
In fact, in the past year, more than 2,300 people living in these lands placed their faith in Jesus Christ as the the fruit of our partners’ ministries…and 37 new churches were launched with our support.
For $120 per month, you can join the movement of committed supporters helping to empower a church planter and his congregation reflect the light of Christ in these dark corners of the world.
