Southeast Asia


The 10/40 Window

The 10/40 Window

The EMC is now ministering within the 10/40 window as a Missions Conference. Nearly 4 billion people live here, including 87 percent of the world’s poorest of the poor. The estimation is that 1.6 billion of these people have never had the chance to hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ – not even once! The seat of every major non-Christian religion – Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, Animism, Atheism, and Sikhism – is headquartered in the 10/40 Window. In many of the 65 countries represented in the 10/40 Window, witnessing the Christian Gospel means death. The 10/40 Window remains the darkest and most inhospitable territory to the cause of Christ and represents the greatest remaining stronghold of Satan.

There are many ways that an individual or local church can be involved in the ministry to the 10/40 Window:

  • Vacation Bible School offerings designated for ministry in Southeast Asia.
  • Short-term missionaries needed for Southeast Asia.
  • Missions Trip to Southeast Asia being planned every February for the India-Myanmar Annual Conference.
    Applications available from Headquarters.
