International (MNN) — A third of the world is still denied access to the Gospel. The Alliance for the Unreached is a group of ministries, united in a vision to bring the Good News of Jesus to every people group. FMI is part of the vision, championing the cause at every opportunity. FMI spokesman Nehemiah says it’s about working smarter, not harder. “It’s a beautiful fusion and combination of the Great Commission and Matthew 9:37, where Jesus said, ‘The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few.’ That was much needed. And I was always wondering how to have that kind of alliance. This organization brings everybody on one boat and one platform. They may know each other. They may know the visions of different organizations. That is so beautiful.” See other Champion Members here.
Partnerships on the ground
Nehemiah serves as a ministry liaison for FMI. He often connects with other ministries who want to serve in countries where FMI works. FMI will then connect them with support on the ground.
For instance, Nehemiah worked with another ministry to translate Bible stories into the Balochi language in Pakistan. He met them through the Alliance. “They’re just connecting the dots together. And because of that organization, we will reach five to six million unreached people inside Pakistan.”
The cause of the Unreached is celebrated and prayed for on the International Day for the Unreached, Pentecost Sunday.
