One Of The Greatest Ways To Reach The Nations

Approximately half of the world's population lives in countries that restrict or ban the sharing of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, yet we are commanded to take the Gospel to all the world. There is an amazing current opportunity to do that very thing. We can take the Gospel to many, if not most, of those nations without ever leaving the relative comfort of our own nation. And, we can do it face-to-face.

Here's how it works. People from those nations immigrate to this nation all the time. Those immigrants have real needs. While their greatest need is spiritual, they also need to learn the language, navigate the culture, find jobs, and raise families in a strange and foreign land. When they come here, the doors that were shut in their countries are opened.

When an immigrant from a closed country meets and believes in Jesus Christ, and are discipled, they become a missionary to their own people - those living here, and often even those of their own people group living in the nation of their birth. 

Here's a story about how Southern Baptists are supporting this kind of evangelism here in North America.
