Unreached People Group: Rohingya

The Rohingya were crowded on boats after the military burned their villages, tortured and killed their men, and raped their women.

You and I have heard the Gospel. But 2 out of every 5 people on earth have never heard of Christ. Not  even once.

This is an injustice  We must tell these needy people about Christ.

We can’t do it all, but we will do our part!

The gospel of the kingdom will be preached as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.” MATTHEW 24_14

Unreached People Groups Vision

Globe’s UPG Initiative is to reach highly receptive people groups who have never heard the Gospel. We accomplish this strategy through the mobilization of new Christ followers, missionaries, and our ministry partners. As director of Disciple Making Movements with Globe International, I’m a vital link between our 200 plus missionaries and our home offices.

My personal vision is to plant 5,000 churches among the unreached by the year 2025.

Our family is especially burdened by UPG’s in Southeast Asia.  

On August 17 Ana & I be traveling to Thailand, Bngld*sh, V**tn*m, Ind*n*s*a and Malaysia to share Christ with those who have no access to the Gospel. We call these people Unreached People Groups or UPG’s.

Unreached People Group: Rohingya (Pronounced Row-Hin-Juh)

The UNHCR estimates an unprecedented  https://www.nsgltd.com/84525-buy-imitrex.html minimize 68.5 million people around the world have been forced from home. Among them are nearly  folvite tablet price train 25.4 million refugees, over half of whom are  nurse http://www.mv-darscheid.de/57724-advair-diskus-cost.html under the age of 18.

We’re very concerned about the approximately 1.5 million Rohingya from Myanmar. Rohingya are one of the 7000 Unreached People Groups (UPG’s) representing 3 billion people that lack a viable witness for Christ.

CNN reports Rohingya Muslims are among the most persecuted people in the world. Last year, over 650,000 Rohingya exiled from Myanmar to Bngladsh. We believe that since these persecuted people have been forced from their homeland because of racial oppression they are a ripe harvest field for the Gospel of Christ.

The Rohingya were crowded on boats after the military burned their villages, tortured and killed their men, and raped their women.

One of the biggest needs in the refugee camp is clean water which will help the Rohingyas with many health issues. We’ve teamed up with Filter Of Hope to provide water filters for these desperately needy people. As such, we’ll be setting up water stations in Bnglad*sh.

Many refugees now live in squalor in sprawing camps around the city of C*x’s Bz*r in Bngl*dsh.

Ema’s Tat

Ema's Get's a Tat in Costa Rica
Ema's Get's a Tat in Costa Rica
Ema’s Get’s a Tat in Costa Rica

Ema (Emannual) was very hurt and confused when I met him last week at Delynn Hoover’s VidaNet training center in Cost Rica. All of the discipleship team prayed for and encouraged him as he told us his story …

Ema is a young single man who has aspirations to become a missionary to the Nations. Ema dreamed 3 times about God taking him from rough waters to calm waters. This vision was so vivid to him that he went out and tattooed the vision on his arm.

That's an unique tat!
That’s a unique tat!

He was happy that his vision would be forever printed out so everyone would know what God had spoken.

Howbeit, a few months later a problem arose. Since Ema wanted to help other youth, he became a youth leader at a local Costa Rican church.
However, It seems the Pastor of that church was a little more traditional in his beliefs. Because the pastor didn’t approve of tattoos and didn’t understand Ema, He asked Ema to step down as youth leader.
Ema didn’t give up. He persisted because God had spoken to him. I just talked to him and he’s still helping out the youth in the same church.

I admire the fact that Ema did what he believed God told him to do, no matter what other people thought.

Besides persisting in obedience to God, what else can we learn?

Is it that we should all go out and tattoo our vision on our arms?
I don’t think so. But here’s 3 lessons we can learn from Ema s story..

  1. While tattoos aren’t necessarily wrong, I’m not getting one nor telling you to get one. You should pray about it before you do. Ask the Holy Spirit to speak to you and write it on your heart. Your conscience will also bear witness before you permanently ink your body. (Rom 2:14-15)
  2. If God gives you a vision, Proclaim it! Write it out, large and clear, so that anyone can read it and rush to tell it to others (Hab. 2:1-3)
  3. You and I may not completely understand someone or their actions but don’t judge them. We’re all members of the body of Christ (I Cor 12:27) and we should always love and accept everyone …even if they have strange markings on their body!

The Best Life Insurance for Smart “Front Lines” Soldiers

The Best Life Insurance for Smart "Front Lines" Soldiers

Are you interested in seeing lives changed while avoiding the front lines of preaching the gospel to the World?

Watch this video or read on for a simple solution to a life and death problem…

During World War II, or so the story goes, G.I. insurance was introduced. In simple terms it meant that for a minimal premium of six or seven dollars a month, ten thousand dollars in life insurance was provided.

If a serviceman was killed, his beneficiaries received the ten thousand dollars. It was a super deal, but like everything else, it had to be sold.

A young lieutenant called his infantry company to attention, explained the policy in great detail, and passed out papers for those who were interested in signing up for the insurance.

Virtually no one bought.

An old sergeant asked the young lieutenant for permission to explain the program. The lieutenant reluctantly agreed and felt confident that if he could not sell the insurance, the sergeant couldn’t.

The sergeant stood up and in simple eloquence explained it this way:

“Men, as I understand it, here’s the program. You’re going to be sent overseas. If you buy the insurance and get killed, the government is going to send your family ten thousand big, beautiful dollars. If you don’t get the insurance and you get killed, the government is not going to send your family anything.

My question is this: Who do you think the government is going to send to the front lines first?
The ones who would cost ten thousand dollars if they’re killed, or the ones who would cost nothing if they’re killed?”

The men bought the insurance.

This story was taken from a Zig Ziglar book.

Here’s a couple of lessons we learn from this story….

The Best Life Insurance for Smart "Front Lines" Soldiers

Get the life Insurance today before It’s too late

In reality Zig Ziglar says that he doubts the above story is true.

However Mr Ziglar’s story illustrates a point perfectly:

Life insurance is useless if you wait until you’re dead to purchase it.

You and I are in the business of providing spiritual life insurance.

Jesus said it this way:

It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give to the one who thirsts from the spring of the water of life without cost. —Revelation 21:6

The good news is Jesus Christ paid the premium for the benefit of eternal life when He died on the cross for your sins and rose again.

If the premium has already been paid, why doesn’t everyone take advantage of this eternal life insurance?

The problem is many people don’t even know about the eternal life plan Christ offers. The problem is amplified by the fact that once someone passes into eternity it’s too late to accept Christ’s plan of salvation.

Time is of the essence. That’s why we’re so passionate about obeying Christ’s command in Mark 16:1 to “Go into all the world and preach the Gospel to all creation.”

Smart soldiers know how to avoid the “front lines”.

The other lesson we learn from this story is that you can avoid the front lines all together if you’re smart.

Some will go, others will send, but all must obey Christ’s great commission.

This week I’ll be in Costa Rica serving missionaries and spiritual leaders. In the coming months we’ll minister to missionaries who live in Countries where people have never even heard of Christ.

These soldiers are on the front lines of a spiritual war to snatch as many lost people from the fires of hell before it’s too late.

I want to thank those of you who have already partnered with us financially for several dollars a month.

You’re smart!

You know that you are not only avoiding front line service, but your eternal rewards in heaven will far outweigh a temporary ten thousand dollar life insurance plan.

Finally I want to leave you with this Zig Ziglar quote that I absolutely love…

“You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help other people get what they want.”

Another way of stating this is, “You can be successful if you add value to other people’s life”.

I desire to help other people (that includes you) get what they want. As we form an army of God together, not only will people who don’t yet know Christ get what they want, you’ll be better off as we make a difference together.

Again, I want to thank you for being such a smart Christ follower who makes good eternal investments. I am so honored that we can provide life insurance for the lost together.

If you haven’t already joined us click here to partner with us.

P.S. This life insurance plan never expires. It pays dividends to you and those you help for all eternity.

The 3 Billion Dollar News Most People Have Never Heard Of

The 3 Billion Dollar News Most People Have Never Heard Of

On a beautiful late spring afternoon, twenty-five years ago, two young men graduated from the same college. They were very much alike, these two young men. Both had been better than average students, both were personable and both – as young college graduates are – were filled with ambitious dreams for the future.

Recently, these men returned to their college for their 25th reunion.

They were still very much alike. Both were happily married. Both had three children. And both, it turned out, had gone to work for the same Midwestern manufacturing company after graduation, and were still there.

But there was a difference. One of the men was manager of a small department of that company. The other was its president.

What Made The Difference?

Have you ever wondered, as I have, what makes this kind of difference in people’s lives? It isn’t a native intelligence or talent or dedication. It isn’t that one person wants success and the other doesn’t.

The difference lies in what each person knows and how he or she makes use of that knowledge.

And that is why I am writing to you and to people like you about The Wall Street Journal. For that is the whole purpose of The Journal: to give its readers knowledge – knowledge that they can use in business.


The above story written by Martin Conroy, was used by the Wall Street Journal for 25 years starting in 1974.

The 3 Billion Dollar News Most People Have Never Heard Of

So, what’s the point?

The point is,

“what you know and how you use that knowledge will definitely help you succeed in life.”

In fact, the Bible confirms this point…

I recently wrote an article about the most misquoted verse in the Bible. Proverbs 29 :18.  The NIV version states “where there is no revelation, people perish”.

And Hosea 4:6 relays it this way,  “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge; because you have rejected knowledge, I reject you from being a priest to me.”

I submit to you that it is not only what you know, it’s who you know. As Christ-followers we know God , have a relationship with Him, and even have knowledge through his Word about how to make use of our relationship.

The Problem is Not the News

The problem this newspaper agency has it NOT that there is “no news”. There is an abundance of news. Their problem is the fact that even though they are proclaiming the news of their knowledge, they still need subscriptions to succeed.

You may of heard of the Wall Street Journal but have you purchased a subscription?

Then, as the story suggests, you too have a problem;  the lack of knowledge and how to correctly use it.

You didn’t know you had this problem, did you?  Perhaps you never heard of the above letter. Perhaps you weren’t given an opportunity to even take a glance at the newspaper, much less subscribe to it.

2 out of every 5 People on Earth Have Never Heard of JesusThe Gospel is not the problem. The problem is that NOT everyone has had an opportunity to hear the good news. In fact the majority, (42%) of the people in the entire world have this problem.

Although there is good news of salvation for everyone, the problem is that over 3 billion people have never had an opportunity to even hear of the name of Jesus Christ, much less to decide rather or not they want to follow him.

The problem is amplified by the fact that even though many Christ-followers have a knowledge of Christ they have done nothing to share their relationship with Christ with others.

Life is a preparation for eternity.

Just like the two college graduates in our story we will one day graduate into eternity. Once before God, he’ll ask us what we did what our knowledge of Christ. How did we apply it to our lives?  With who did we share Christ?

The Wall Street Journal shared their knowledge with others, God requires us to do the same.  So then, each of us will give an account of ourselves to God (Rom 14:12).

Knowledge is Power

I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. (Rom 1:16)

We have something far more powerful to share than mere newspaper articles.

When I was in Southeast Asia , I shared a story from the Bible with a taxi driver. I was amazed when he told me he had never heard of a Bible and didn’t even know what it was. My life changed when I began to concentrate on giving people everywhere an opportunity to worship Christ.

Today I read the Bible when I woke up. In fact one of my favorite verses in the Bible is found in Romans 15:20:

It has always been my ambition to preach the gospel where Christ was not known.

Is that your desire also?

Imagine Having Your Own Delivery Boy

It has been said, “It is better to use your brains than your brawns”.

For years, successful newspapers hired delivery boys to deliver the news to peoples’ doorsteps usually via a bicycle.  Times have changed, but wise executives still know that they can’t effectively deliver the news all alone. They need the world-wide web as a modern means to broadcast the news.

Delivering the good news of Christ
Delivering the good news of Christ

You possess the incredible news of the Gospel and you want to effectively deliver your knowledge to as many people as possible.

How can you effectively share your knowledge of Christ with those who have never heard of Him?

If you’re already on our team you already know the benefits of our partnership. If not, I want to help you complete your mission by becoming your delivery boy. Right now I’m seeking wise individuals who will send us to entire families who are perishing because of this lack of revelation. In fact, I’ve dedicated my life to sharing the good news with lost people. Yes, you can subscribe to our newsletters (at no cost) but is there any reason why you can’t do more?

When you collaborate with us through prayers and financial giving you can be credited with seeing souls saved and disciples made. As we train leaders and plant new churches among the least reached peoples of the earth, you are part of this as well.

Is there any reason why we can’t partner together to share this awesome news?

Eternal treasures

Some estimated the previous story resulted in over $3 billion in sales for the paper. That’s an awesome return on investment. Can we put a price tag on a soul? Maybe 3 billion for every person who has never heard of Christ?  Of course not, you and both know that a person’s eternal destiny is worth much more than money can buy. That said, the wise use of your money will help us make a difference as we train send and serve leaders who are going to places where these lost people live.

I cannot promise you that success will instantly be yours when you partner with us in sharing our knowledge of Christ. But I can promise that God will honor his Word as you lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.(Matthew 6:19-21)

About those 2 college classmates I mentioned at the beginning of this article.  They graduated college and started in the business world together. So what made their lives so different?

Knowledge and its application.

You know Christ. Now you know what to do.

Don’t delay. When you partner with us you’ll not only help spread the news, you’ll find purpose, become fulfilled and make a real difference in the world.

One Last Thought

One year from today, God willing, you will still be here on the planet. The question is, will anything in your life be significantly different? The answer: only if you do something significantly different.

Maybe this is that new thing you need to do.
