God is bringing, orchestrating people from this place to that place and how He is bringing so many of those peoples right into our neighborhoods. The reality is God desires all nations, He is moving nations for the sake of His glory and one of the ways He is doing this is bringing the nations to our doorsteps.

Our calling is to make Christ known to all the nations. Today, the nations have come to us and we need to be good stewards of the opportunity we’ve been given. Peoplegroups.info is a great way to discover which people groups live near you. Then, it helps you get to know them better and plan ways to share the gospel with them.

What an opportunity we have to share the Good News with the nations right here at home. That doesn't mean we don’t go overseas, but it does mean we shouldn't miss the wonderful opportunities that the Father is giving His church. The nations are literally living next door.
