What is the 10/40 Window?

10/40 Window

The 10/40 Window is a rectangular area of North Africa, the Middle East and Asia between 10 degrees north and 40 degrees north latitude.  This area is often called “The Resistant Belt” and includes the majority of the world’s Muslims, Hindus, and Buddhists.  Most of the people living in this region are still waiting to hear the gospel for the first time.

2,000 years ago Jesus gave us a commission and said,
“Go therefore, and make disciples of all the nations.”
