It’s not an uncommon perception that missionaries no longer need to be sent from here (the United Kingdom) to there (the rest of the world). Eddie Arthur explores some of the questions and myths that surround this perception.

Latest prayer points

Iran, United Kingdom
Persians:  There are 47,000 Persian Iranians living in the UK. Their main religion is Islam. Living in the UK is a great opportunity for them to encounter the gospel. Pray that they would come into contact with churches and Christians. Pray, too, for any Persian churches in the UK to grow and reach out to their own people here. Jesus, we ask that you would turn the hearts of Persians towards you! Amen.
Armenia, Iraq, Turkey, United Kingdom
Kurmanji Kurds: There are 27,000 Northern Kurds living in the UK. They speak English, but most will speak Kurmanji in their homes. This people group grapple with issues of integration: how to preserve their culture while also being involved in Western life. Most Kurds are Muslims, though there are several different factions. They have the JESUS film available in their language, so pray that churches would be aware of the need to reach the Kurmanji Kurds in the UK. Pray for spiritual encounters that lead to finding the truth.
Bangladesh, United Kingdom
Bengali Asians:  There are 354,000 Bengali-speakers living in the UK. Their main religion is Islam, with 1% Christians and 0.13% Evangelicals. Even though there are millions of Christians in the UK, the South Asians speaking the Bengali language remain unreached. Pray for Christians to have wisdom and boldness in witnessing to them. Pray for God to equip churches and provide opportunities. Pray against any fear of different cultures or religions, both for Christians and for these unreached people.
France, Morocco, United Kingdom
Imazighen Berbers:  The Berbers are the original North Africans, and the Imazighen Berbers come specifically from Morocco. Most still live in Morocco, but some are in France and 3,200 live in the UK. Though they are mostly Muslims, many of their cultural practices draw on various other traditions. Pray that the 3,200 Imazighen Berbers in the UK will encounter someone who highlights to them their need for Jesus. Pray that the Holy Spirit will do a work in their lives, showing them that Jesus alone can save them.
