International Day for the UnreachedThis Sunday has been designated as a day to focus on reaching the two billion people in the world that have yet to get access to the Gospel and hear the good news about Christ. 

Its called International Day for the Unreached. Missions organizations are joining together encouraging churches and individuals to get involved in working to get the Gospel to unreached people groups. Tim Born, senior director of strategic partnerships with Wycliffe Bible Translators, tells OneNewsNow they are excited to be a part of this focus.

"It's where our vision is and what we're excited about,” he shares. “Also, what the greater church is stepping forward and advocating for is that every man, woman and child gets access to the Good News and has the opportunity to have their lives transformed by the Living Word."

Born hopes International Day for the Unreached, which is also Pentecost Sunday, will create urgency among believers to get the Gospel to unreached people - many of whom are yearning for the Lord even though they don't realize it.

"They have a deep longing for God; they are homesick to be in communion with God, to have that relationship,” he says. “But they don't even have the language to express those feelings at times."
