England’s second largest city after London. But listen to this: Almost half of all those people are younger than 30, and they need to hear and respond to the gospel of Christ. Jonathan Todd, our missionary for this week, has stepped up to the task. God has enabled Jonathan to do some remarkable things in Birmingham. For example, he has been able to speak at a number of high school assemblies, presenting the gospel to students and teachers alike. One school was in a community that is predominantly Muslim, yet Jonathan was able to give New Testaments to 48 students. The principal of another school agreed to start an after-school Christian club because of the gospel presentation Jonathan made.
This week we’re praying for the Lhokpu people of Bhutan. There are 3,600 people, none of which are Christians, among the Lhokpu people. 100% of the population believe in Buddhism. Living in a remote area of the world makes physically getting to them difficult. Because there is no Bible available in their language, there is a huge need for physical workers to carry and share the Gospel to them. Learn more about unreached people groups at the Joshua Project.
