You may have heard a lot of talk about unreached, unengaged people groups, or UUPGs. There’s even a day dedicated to the topic called the International Day for the Unreached. More about that here.
Usually, headlines focus on need, but today we’ve got a praise report from Bibles For The World. President John Pudaite says their Asian partners recently met a believer from one of the UUPGs they adopted last year.
“We’ve asked them to take on that role of discipleship, of guiding him and bringing him into their fold – at least for a time – so that they can… prepare him to go back into his village and be able to share the Gospel.”
As described here, UUPGs have millions of people, no known believers, and no one is actively trying to reach them for Christ. Download the Great Commission Action Guide to learn more.
Bibles For The World met the “engaged” criteria when they adopted the people group last year. To protect current and future Gospel work, Pudaite won’t name the people group or describe its specific location.
“It’s a country where things are a little bit in flux; there is freedom of religion in their constitution but there [are] also statements about the country’s character being aligned with a certain religion,” Pudaite explains.
