If you walked down the street of this city, you’d find that 8 out of 10 people have never heard about Jesus’ work on our behalf. That’s hard to believe in our media-driven world.

But El Aaiun in the Sahara ranks as the least evangelized city in the world, with 82 percent never hearing the gospel of Jesus.

The next nine non-evangelized cities are all in Afghanistan, with 79 percent of the people there never hearing the gospel.
The top 10 non-evangelized countries are:
1. Sahara
2. The Maldives islands just off the tip of India.
3. Bhuttan
4. Afghanistan
5. Mauritania
6. Somaliland
7. Morocco. The three nations of Morocco, Sahara and Mauritania are bunched together on the bulge of Africa.
8. Turkmenistan which is just north of Afghanistan.
9. Yemen
10. Azerbaijan, just west of Turkmenistan.

I have sometimes thought that, through radio broadcasts and a serious missionary effort in the last 200 years, that there were no people who hadn’t at least heard the gospel, except perhaps a few natives deep in a rainforest somewhere.

These are cities of people who haven’t heard.

Please pray for them and consider how we can be involved in Jesus’ direction.
Therefore go and make disciples of all nations
Matt 28:19

The Maldives are ones that come up in my mind a lot.
