Are you ready to embrace unreached peoples?
Embracing unreached peoples in your locale is AN UNENDING TASK. No matter how much is done, cultures are constantly changing, people are continually migrating from place to place, and technology and travel is ever dispersing where people make a living and rest their head.
With the above in mind, PeopleGroups.info encourages three inter-related ways to embrace unreached peoples ranging from sifting through existing data along with gathering new information directly from people to engaging people up close and personal.
The three ways range anywhere from public to private, being as public in the form of online data to as private in the form of up close and personal with a specific people. The following three ways are not sequential but may happen simultaneously.
