Finishing The Task is committed to fostering unity in prayer, focusing specifically on Christian organizations partnering with the Church in obedience to the Great Commandment and towards the completion of the Great Commission. 🙏 To this end, we're excited that FTT will be establishing a prayer initiative that unites our partners in prayer for the Great Commission.

Only 1 of 50 Deaf people know Jesus.⁠
Sign Language is the heart language for the Deaf community, so to engage the Deaf, FTT member organizations and churches are working to translate Scripture into the over 400 sign languages in the world.

It's our prayer that by next year, Deaf people will have the first ever complete Bible in a sign language (ASL)!⁠

September is Deaf Awareness Month. We have a great opportunity to continue to bring awareness to the 70 million Deaf people around the world that have never seen Jesus’s name signed in their language.

Join us in praying for the Lord to raise up more of His Church to reach those who have never heard in their “heart language” of sign language.

If you have Deaf members in your church, invite them to share their stories and learn about their experience.

Throughout this month we’ll be sharing more facts about Deaf UUPGs!

"The story of the gospel is the story of eternal life. My life is unique and will endure eternally in God's presence. I will never be 'no more.' I will never be lost because I will be with One who saves me." - Ravi Zacharias

Today, we honor the ministry and legacy of Ravi Zacharias. For nearly five decades, Ravi sought to make the name of Jesus known to all people, even skeptics. Please join us in prayer for the Zacharias family and in celebration as Ravi is now in the eternal presence of his Lord and Savior.

But before people can ask the Lord for help, they must believe in him, they must hear about him.; and for them to hear about the Lord, someone must tell them; and before someone can go and tell them, that person must be sent.

At the 2018 FTT Conference, Japanese Pastor Joshua Hari attended the conference in anticipation of celebrating what God has done, but God clearly had other plans! Learning that there were 3 Japanese UPPGs that needed to be adopted, Hari stepped up to adopt them all! Hari says, “I sensed God’s calling and I decided to adopt those UUPG groups.” May we continue to celebrate the victories God makes possible through those who serve Him!

Today, join us in praying that God would multiply these numbers in the years to come, bring people of every tongue, tribe, and nation into His family! ⁠

"Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure." Eph. 1:4-5 (NLT)

For the first time ever, this year’s #FinishingtheTask conference featured a track for the Deaf. The track brought together 50 Deaf and 50 hearing leaders and united them around a common vision to see gospel movements among the Deaf people groups. Out of the track, a Deaf ministry coalition was formed, the first of its kind that we are aware of! 🙌🏾

“It was really a historic moment for the Deaf. The stage has been set to work together in unprecedented ways.” - Track leader Kevin McGhee of @coverge_ww

Any body has pastor Rick's note about FTT vision of reaching UUPG without Believer, Body of Christ, Bible? Please send me if you have the note or power point that he used it during the FTT conference.
List of people groups who still need to hear gospel.
The Marshell Plan approach to "Finishing the Task" The purpose of this document is to give suggestions on how to breakdown this task into bit size elements in order to increase the participation of more of the church body by having them dedicate a minimum of 7% of their ministries' mission budgets to Finishing the Task. The cornerstone of this objective would be a new book by Rick Warren "The Purpose of my Purpose Driven Life" or something along those lines which would be about the great commission and how through orality, technology and old school missionary work completing the great commission in our lifetimes is now possible. The book would also include how churches and individuals can get involved. The book would be followed by a book tour in which Pastor Warren could make his case for completing the great commission while at the same time increasing the visibility of this project to the maximum amount of people in the shortest amount of time. During the book tour Pastor Warren could also invite all pastors to use their platform to get involved with the Finishing the Task effort which would include a booklet of talking points that they can use as a guide. There could also be a group of speakers that are available to talk to churches about getting involved in Finishing the Task. Finally, I would like you to consider breaking down the task into three phases which would include estimated times of completion and budgets for each phase. You may want to consider figuring out what kind of resources it would take to cut the time in half or better; people like things that can on some level be quantified especially when it comes to giving. My wife Catherine and myself have been gifted in Kingdom investing which seems to follow a pattern of coming alongside a Ministry through giving and encouragement until we are moved on to the next assignment only this time is different. I don’t believe there is a next assignment. I believe this is the big one and I couldn’t be more excited about it. The ramifications are.... staggering. My hope is that the Brethren from around the world get a chance to partner in this task which is the overt will of God. I also believe this shared obligation will bring the body of Christ together in an unprecedented way. If I can be of service in any way to these ends do not hesitate to contact me. I will be at the Conference...God willing
Approximately 85% of all missionary finances are being used by Western missionaries who are working among the established churches on the field rather than being used for pioneer evangelism to the lost. (Yohannan, Revolution in World Missions, 143) Out of 648 million evangelical Christians, 70% have never been told about the 1.6 billion unevangelized individuals in the world. (World Evangelization Research Center) 40% of the church's entire global foreign mission resources are being deployed to just 10 oversaturated countries. (World Evangelization Research Center) Of foreign mission funding: 87% goes for work among those already Christian. 12% for work among already evangelized, but Non-Christian. 1% for work among the unevangelized and unreached people. (Baxter 2007, 12)
