Further than the Walls, to the End- Project 10:2

The Walls of the Church must include the Ends of the Earth.

Earth boy

First some stats:

There is 1000 churches to every ONE unreached people group.

There are over 200 different translations of the Bible in English, yet thousands of languages that do not even have ONE verse in their language.
The Gospel translates, it is for ALL people.

Churches might dabble in the task of the completing the Great Commission yet how many are willing to engage the task to make it their goal to complete it? Christ didn't ask us to get our feet wet in missions Jesus commanded us to "GO and make disciples of ALL nations" (Matthew 28:19).

As Kendall and I are waiting to go overseas, it is hard to be okay with where I am when I am ready to be engaging unreached people groups overseas. However, I am beginning to recognize the need, more than ever, for prayer of these peoples and workers.

 I will commit myself to pray for workers to go but also to be involved where I am engaging Internationals. Even if I can't be overseas right now, I can pray for those who are and for people to be sent.

What an important task, to pray for the kingdom to come on earth.
We should so desire that the Lamb who was slain would receive the reward of His suffering.

 I have been overwhelmed with a passion to reach the unreached. It is beginning to fuel me, and I am perfectly okay with that. I pray it consumes me so that it is the only task I am concerned with, as it is the only eternal thing I can be a part of. I cannot wait to see our Father receive His full glory. 

We are promised in Revelation that "every tongue, tribe, and nation" will be in the throne room of God (Revelation 7:9). How exciting?!

What is Project 10:2?

Project 10: 2 comes from the verse Luke 10:2-- And he said to them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.

We are called to pray for laborers to go into the harvest. I felt led to start something on my blog that will encourage people to pray more intentionally about sending laborers into the harvest. Project 10:2 is a way to do that. I encourage you to set a reminder on your phone at either 10:02 a.m. or 10:02 p.m. The purpose of this is that when your alarm goes off you will say a prayer that laborers will be sent into the harvest so that we may complete the task of reaching unreached people groups. I will also have an "Unreached People of the Week" that I will post on my blog so that you may include that people group in your prayer for the week. I hope you will be encouraged to do this and join alongside many other believers in prayer for the harvest. Even if you can't go, you can definitely pray.
