The Face of Asia

Asia is a land of stark contrasts:

  • modern cities — rural primitivism
  • advanced technology — ox drawn farming
  • wealth — poverty
  • oasis — desert
  • housing developments — tent cities
  • breath taking landscapes — choking pollution
  • cars — bicycle rickshaws

There are many cultures, languages and people groups, even within individual countries. Asia's population continues to multiply, growing faster than anywhere else in the world. It is the home to many religions including Buddhism, Hinduism, and Islam. To these countries God called missionary pioneers such as Judson and Carey to declare the gospel among those who had never heard. Years of missionary service have produced churches, Bible colleges, seminaries and other institutions. Yet today only a small percentage of the populations of these countries claim Christianity.
