We support two missionaries that serve overseas in areas of the world that are unreached. An unreached people is a people group among which there is no indigenous community of believing Christians with adequate numbers and resources to evangelize this people group without outside assistance. The two missionaries serve in places that can be hostile to the Gospel. For safety reasons we cannot include their photo and name on the internet. Know that their work amongst these peoples is great as they share the Gospel with peoples who will hear it for the first time EVER!
