The Christian HolyLand Foundation, Inc. (CHLF) is an independent organization formed in the early 1980s for the purpose of sharing the Gospel message in Israel and surrounding lands. For more than 20 years that mission was carried out through our affiliation with George Awwad, a Christian Arab minister living in East Jerusalem. Following George's unexpected death in 2003 CHLF looked for two years for someone to continue the work. When God brought us together with an already existing Team of couples in the Galilee, it was clear that it was time for a period of significant growth in the ministry.The Christian HolyLand Foundation partners with six pastoring couples who are all native to the Galilee region of northern Israel. In their capacity as church planters, they serve both established congregations and 'home' churches. They are also active in specialized ministries such as Women's programs and trainings, Believer reconciliation events, youth groups, and more. Since 2005 they have expanded from 6 ministries in 5 different communities, to working with some two dozen groups in nearly 30 villages and towns. These couples each have their own individual ministries, as well as working together as a Team on large or special projects. They meet regularly for worship, encouragement, planning, and accountability. For more info: chlf.org
The ApMa Project exists to enable, educate, train, and equip the local people of the ApMa language. More specifically, they target individuals that through training, will eventually takeover their duties. In essence, they are trying to work themselves out of a job. By doing this, it will provide a sustainable project that the ApMa people can take ownership of and champion the cause themselves. This is done through various avenues: Education & Literacy; Discipleship & Church Growth; Community Development & Construction Projects; and a Scholarship Program. For more info: oipng.com
The 10/40 Window is home to the majority of the world's unevangelized countries. This is a rectangular area of North Africa, the Middle East and Asia approximately between 10 degrees north and 40 degrees north latitude. The 10/40 Window is often called "The Resistant Belt" and includes the majority of the world's Muslims, Hindus, and Buddhists. The original 10/40 Window included only countries with at least 50% of their land mass within 10 and 40 degrees north latitude. The revised 10/40 Window includes several additional countries that are close to 10 or 40 degrees north latitude and have high concentrations of unreached peoples. Approximately 4.94 billion individuals residing in approximately 8,461 distinct people groups are in the revised 10/40 Window. 5,850 (69.1%) of these people groups are considered unreached and have a population of 3.05 billion. This means approximately 62% of the individuals in the 10/40 Window live in an unreached people group. The 10/40 Window is home to some of the largest unreached people groups in the world such as the Shaikh, Yadava, Turks, Moroccan Arabs, Pashtun, Jat and Burmese. Morrison Hill Christian Church supports several missions in the 10/40 Window area. For more info: joshuaproject.net
