An area of the world with great poverty

United Arab Emirates
Many do not understand why a missionary would go to the 10/40 Window. People have argued just as many people need to hear about Christ here in America, which is very true! The biggest difference is there are millions of people who have never heard the gospel and there is no Christian witness available for them to hear about Jesus. Even though we have poverty and homeless people in America, they are still among the top 10% of the wealthiest people in the world! Many organizations do not want to go to these countries in the 1040 Window because of the danger and extreme persecution to Christians. We know that God has called our team to preach the gospel and reach the lost no matter how bad the conditions are or how dangerous it may be. If Jesus has commanded us to do it them we believe that He will take care of us and keep us safe while we are there!
