Unreached People Groups – Africa

There are currently 58 countries in the continent of Africa with a population totaling over 1.1 billion. According to the statistics provided by JoshuaProject.com, there are nearly 4,7000 people groups in Africa with over 980 people groups (or about 336 thousand people) who have never heard the Gospel. It is our prayer that nearly 90% of Africa’s population gets to hear the good news of the Gospel in this lifetime. Pray with us that these statistics change, and that all will have the opportunity to hear the Good News.
