THE 10/40 WINDOW – is a rectangular area of North Africa, the
Middle East and Asia approximately between 10 degrees north
and 40 degrees north latitude. The 10/40 Window is often called
“The Resistant Belt” and includes the majority of the world’s
Muslims, Hindus and Buddhists. 85% of the unreached people
groups are located in the region. – Joshua Project.
THE NEED – This non-denominational project is an effort to
challenge the church to do more to take the gospel of Christ to the
estimated 2 billion people living in the world today who have not
been told the good news even one time. “American Christians
spend 95% of offerings on home-based ministry, 4.5% on cross-
cultural efforts in already reached people groups, and .5% to
reach the unreached.” – The Traveling Team Clearly We can do
THE 10.40 PLAN
RECEIVE: IF WE GIVE JUST $10.40 – Just a small amount like this,
given monthly by a large group of Christians would go a long way
to proclaim the gospel to the unreached. Click on the “Donate”
link to join us in this important effort.
GO: PRAY FOR AND FIND THE LABORS – Our team will go to
10/40 window unreached people groups to identify reputable,
indigenous ministers whom God has already called to reach
their unreached people and then invest in their ministry with
training and finances.
PLANT: FINANCE LOCAL MINISTERS TO ESTABLISH HOUSE
CHURCHES – Our team will train and financially enable the
indigenous ministers to go to the unreached, win the lost and
begin establishing house churches.
REPLICATE: FINANCE LOCAL MINISTERS TO DISCIPLE NEW
PASTORS AND REPLICATE – We will lead and encourage local
pastors and evangelists will multiply their efforts by discipling and
then teaching their disciples to disciple others in order to plant
more and more house churches.
CAN I REALLY MAKE A DIFFERENCE?
Yes, you can make a big difference. Every believer is called to
evangelism and missions. Evangelism is spreading the gospel
as we go about our daily lives. Missions is doing the same while
crossing a culture. There may be limitations which keep a few
from going but most can send others, even if it requires some
sacrifice. Though there are of course exceptions, $10.40 a month
is not a lot of sacrifice by most living in the west. Those who can
do neither. Certainly we call all pray. God expects us to all be
involved. Whether you are supporting this project or another
legitimate missions ministry, your obedience is greatly felt and
appreciated by those who labor, by our ministry and, more
importantly, by God!
WE WILL FAITHFULLY KEEP YOU INFORMED
All 10.40 PRIORITY donors will receive frequent updates of
information and pictures via Facebook, Twitter and E-mail to
show how God is using your gifts to make a difference for the
We strongly recommend establishing a regular donation date
and allowing MLE Ministries to auto draft a very affordable $10.40
each month from your debit or credit card. Of course, you can
discontinue your giving at any time by simply calling or e-mailing
us. The auto draft is preferred by many as it prevents you from
having to keep up with “one more thing”. From our standpoint, it
maintains consistency, keeps overhead low, and allows us to
better plan our ministry investments
HELP US SPREAD THE WORD!
We invite you to contact us so that we can discuss teaming up to

still untold” – John Wesley
