Why Move to South Asia to Plant Churches?

People often ask me why I am moving my family to South Asia to plant churches when there are many places in the US that need churches planted. First, I do not believe that this is an either/or, but rather a both/and as there are needs for churches here and places around the world. Second, 2 out of 3 people on the planet live in the great continent of Asia. According to Desiring God International 70% of Asian's have still never heard of Jesus Christ, not even for the first time.

This video below captures the essence of why we are moving to South Asia to plant churches. "Missions isn't simply about winning individuals to Christ. The unique task of missions is to plant the church among all people groups."

I would challenge you to consider the challenge to GO to the nations in some capacity as the need is great, but the laborers are few as we are reminded in Luke 10.2: And he said to them, "The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.
