Middle East/North Africa

The Middle East and N. Africa, (MENA) are part of the 1040 window, the most un-evangelized part of the planet, it is also one of the most misunderstood parts.  While Christianity is a small percentage of most of these 24 countries, the number of Christians is still quite large. One of the countries has over 4 million Christians, another is 45% Christian. In both countries however, they know little about what the Bible teaches. In MENA there is a mix of very poor (Sudan) and very rich (UAE) countries financially, but they are all poor when it comes to knowing the one and true God.  Wars are very common in MENA countries which produce many refugee children. Most MENA children are without hope and have very little chance of ever hearing the Good News; that Jesus loves them, that He died for them, that He was buried and that He rose again to demonstrate His power over death.
