WASHINGTON – May 20 marks Pentecost Sunday, the anniversary of when the Holy Spirit fell upon and empowered Christ’s disciples to take His Good News to the whole world. But this year, Pentecost Sunday will also be known as the International Day of the Unreached.
It’s needed because so many billions of people aren’t getting the chance to learn about the Good News. According to Wayne Pederson of the Alliance for the Unreached, more than a third of humanity will likely never hear a message about Jesus…unless the Church does something about it.
“Out of the seven billion people on planet Earth, I think it’s 3.2 billion people, which is about 40 percent of the population, have no opportunity to hear the gospel where they live, in their location,” Pederson told CBN News.
The day is meant to raise awareness, especially among the faithful, and wake them up.
