#Lent14 — 10/40

As we have done in previous Lent and Advent seasons, we are again blogging our way through the Lenten Lectionary Texts.  In this season, our prayer is that we will bless and inspire you in your walk between the Now and Not-Yet of the Kingdom.  We pray that our meditations will be life-giving to you in your journey.

A reading from the Gospel According to John.

Jesus said:

My food is to do what God wants!  He is the one who sent me, and I must finish the work that he gave me to do.  You may say that there are still four months until harvest time.  But I tell you to look, and you will see that the fields are ripe and ready to harvest.

John 4:34-35 (CEV)

This is the Word of The Lord.

Today, I want to introduce you to a part of the world we love.  It’s the part of the world that has captured our imagination and dreams.  It’s a part of the world that we know is heavy on God’s heart, and, unfortunately, is not always so heavy on the hearts of His followers.  It’s the part of the world that we call the 10/40 Window.

Instead of adding more words to those that have already been written about this part of the world, we thought we’d share with you a couple of videos and urge you to allow them to spark your prayers for this part of the world.

First, a video shared by our friends at Within Reach Global:

Second, a video from our fiends at Rise Campaign:

Finally, our own video from the time we spent in Azerbaijan last year:

Our prayer is that these videos have given you a larger view of the 10/40 Window and the unreached peoples of the world.  That they have sparked your prayers.

If you would like to help us reach this amazing part of the world, then we’d love to have you partner with us.  You can visit our PARTNER WITH US page, or click HERE to be taken to Get The Word Out! which handles our financial support.
