SOUTHEAST ASIA (BP) -- In a dimly lit wooden home, a paralyzed man shares the story of his paralysis, his time with a witchdoctor, and finally, his vision of heaven.

TOKYO (BP) -- If you share the Gospel with a Japanese person, there is a 99 percent chance this would be the first time they've ever heard the message. With that statistic, Japanese people can be classified as an unreached people group. This might come as a surprise for those who think of "unreached people groups" with images of men and women living in jungles or remote desert dwellings. Instead, Japan's unreached are often businessmen working in skyscrapers and young adults with unparalleled digital connectedness.
