Reaching the Unreached: How to Show the Glory of God to the World

Episode 229 - Duane Frasier

In the world, there are over 7,000 different people groups that have never heard of Jesus. Our guest, Duane Frasier, works with Joshua Project to make that number smaller day by day. He does this by researching about different people groups and communicating with missionaries who want to reach them.

The goal is to spread the Gospel to every people group that has not heard about Jesus. Their work has helped missions across the globe and has opened people’s eyes to the need for ministry. Through Duane’s work and the work of many others, people of every nation and tongue can hear the Gospel.
