Asia, the largest continent in the world, is home to more than half the earth’s population. Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Shinto and Confucianism dominate the continent, and there are major conflicts between religious groups. Oppressive governments and religious systems make it difficult for Christians to live out their faith. Having the Word of God in their heart language will help persecuted believers understand the hope they have in Christ. Church leaders will find wisdom and direction from the counsel of God. In Asia, at least 870 language groups need a Scripture translation.
