Learn More About The Region:

The 27 countries in eastern and southern Africa are already fairly well evangelized, but there are more than 330 remaining least-reached peoples especially in the Horn of Africa and among the Hindu and Muslim immigrant groups in East Africa. Ethiopia has over 18 million people among its 32 least-reached peoples, representing 21.2% of its population. Sudan has over 19 million people in 133 least-reached groups, representing 57.5% of its population. However, nations like Comoros, Somalia, Djibouti, and Mayotte have over 90% of their population in least-reached groups! Much work remains! The peaceful ending of apartheid in South Africa and the translation to multi-racial democratic government was considered impossible but the miracle occurred in answer to fervent prayer by millions of Christians in South Africa and beyond. In the past few years, a new movement aiming to globalize prayer has sprung up from this area beginning in Transformation Africa and now Global Day of Prayer annually beginning with a ten-day time of prayer and fasting each year on Ascension Day and culmination with the Global Day of Prayer on the Day of Pentecost. In 2010, over 220 nations participated. Pray with believers around the world that the gospel would penetrate to every tongue, tribe, and nation in this region!

Prayer Points:

TRANSFORMATION:

Ask God to transform every Least-Reached People into life givers rather than life takers by His power and love.

LIVING SACRIFICES:

Ask the Lord of the Harvest to thrust forth many laborers who offer their lives daily as living sacrifices, so that whether by life of by death, the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ is glorified among every Least-Reached People.

BRIDGES FOR THE GOSPEL:

Request that God impart divine revelation of redemptive bridges for the gospel, in order to effectively present His truth and good news.

FORGIVENESS:

Seek God to impart the ability to forgive enemies, to overcome evil with good, and to bless those that persecute as believers try to share the gospel with Least-Reached Peoples.

ENDURANCE:

Plead with God for workers with such endurance that they never give up, moved by the great compelling of God to reach even the most remote and difficult Least-Reached People groups such as the nomadic Bunna.
