Window into a Forgotten World: Some Facts about the 10/40 Window


The 10/40 window includes nations that are 10 degrees north latitude to 40 degrees north latitude stretching from Japan in the east through China and South East Asia through India and then through the Middle East and North Africa.


This fairly small window encompasses nearly 4 billion people. 
95% of those who have not heard the Gospel live here. 

90% of the world’s poor live here. 

The most persecuted nations in the world are here where thousands of Christians are martyred every year. 

Less than 10% of the world missionary force ministers here. 

Less than $1 of every $100 of missions giving goes to the 10/40 window

  “Sometimes it looks like Christians who live safely and comfortably outside tha that window could care less about the billions of people who perish inside it.”  Michael Oh, Korean Missionary in Japan
