Creative Access Missionaries

Gospel Light Baptist Church currently supports three missionary families in creative access countries. In order to learn about them, we encourage you to come visit Gospel Light Baptist Church and read their newsletters in the sanctuary.

Please remember to pray for our brother and sisters in Christ who face the biggest threats of persecution in creative access locations, also known as the 10/40 Window or the Resistant Belt.

The 10/40 Window is a rectangular area of North Africa, the Middle East, and Asia approximately between the 10th and 40th degree north latitude. It is the area where the world's majority of Muslims, Hindus, and Buddhists reside. The original window only included countries with a minimum of 50% land mass within the 10/40 window. The revised window now includes countries close to the 10/40 window and have high concentrations of unreached populus.

"Approximately 5.27 billion individuals residing in 8,886 distinct people groups are in the revised 10/40 Window.  6,190 (69.7%) of these people groups are considered unreached and have a population of 3.26 billion. This means approximately 62% of the individuals in the 10/40 Window live in an unreached people group. The 10/40 Window is home to some of the largest unreached people groups in the world such as the Shaikh, Yadava, Turks, Moroccan Arabs, Pashtun, Jat and Burmese."
