Did You Know?

Did you know that there are over 3000 ethnic groups of people in the world who have never heard of Jesus? They don’t have one word of the Bible in their own heart-language. These tribes of people don’t have a written alphabet . . . no written language at all.

Revelation 5:9 gives us a glimpse of the future. Here, we see that the redeemed will stand around the throne of Jesus and sing

For You were slain, and have redeemed us to God by Your blood out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation,

The 3000 tribes of people will have representatives around Jesus’ throne singing about how Jesus redeemed them with His blood. In order to do that, these 3000 tribes of people need to hear about Jesus.

Romans 10:14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?

Some day, the last tribe and tongue and nation will hear, and the last person will be redeemed. Can you imagine being the one to tell that person about Jesus? Can you imagine being a part of reaching the last tribes?

I can! New Tribes Mission’s goal is to reach every tribe, every language, every nation, every person and give them the opportunity to know Jesus.

“If people know about God, and they have a choice and do not choose God, that’s THEIR business. If they do not have a way to know about God and cannot make that choice, that’s OUR business.”

    Jenn,
    I know I’ve told you about a wonderful book we are reading…From Akebu to Zapotec, A Book of Bibleless Peoples by June Hathersmith. Published by Wycliffe, it is “an alphabet book which describes the cultures of twenty-six groups of people around the world who do not have a version of the Bible in their own language” (inside cover). Every week we read about one, mark it on our map, and pray for this people group. What a blessing and privilege! This is actually the second book because the most of the groups in the first book now have part of the Bible in their own language.

  3. cool, Brian.

    Martha, I think we’ll have to buy that book. 🙂 Thanks for reminding me.

  4. Gosh, i didn’t realise… thanks!

    God bless
