Of the 5.11 billion people who live in the 10/40 window, fewer than 5 percent have reason to celebrate Christmas this year, because they do not know Christ. In fact, at least 60 percent have never so much as heard the gospel message.¹
It’s unlikely that any of these unreached people will come to the Spiritual Leadership Conference Asia we are hosting in Manila, March 10–12, 2020. But I can say with confidence that, by God’s grace and through His power, many of these people will be impacted by the conference.
Each time we have hosted this conference, the Lord has used it to powerfully affect the furtherance of the gospel in this needy region of the world. To date, we have seen over 250 surrender their lives to the ministry and follow God’s call to serve Him anywhere in the 10/40 region, and just in the past week, we heard of two more who have begun deputation to go out as missionaries to restricted access nations in the region. Additionally, current pastors and missionaries already laboring in the 10/40 window have been encouraged personally and equipped to help their congregations share the gospel.
That is why I’d like to invite you to help sponsor an Asian national pastor with limited resources to attend the 2020 Spiritual Leadership Asia Conference. Many are willing but do not have the financial means necessary to go.
Here are three ways you can help:
- Registration Sponsor: The cost of providing the conference is roughly $80 per delegate. However, these national pastors from the Philippines and South Asia are not in a position to afford the full registration fee. Your $50 partial sponsorship allows us to provide conference registration to these pastors for $30 each.
- Domestic Travel Sponsor: A sponsorship of $100 per person will be used towards subsidizing travel cost of national pastors from provençal areas of the Philippines.
- Meal Sponsor: National pastors from provençal areas of the Philippines will be housed in local churches. Your sponsorship of $100 will be used to cover the costs incurred by these churches.
Would you consider giving this Christmas season toward sending the gospel to the 10/40 window?
