SOUTHERN BAPTISTS HAVE FOLLOWED GOD'S LEAD TO FOCUS ATTENTION ON BRINGING ALL THE WORLD'S  PEOPLES  TO HIM AND GOD HAS RESPONDED TO THE FAITHFULNESS OF HIS PEOPLE.  THERE IS MUCH TO CELEBRATE, BUT FOR THE FIRST TIME IN HISTORY, WE CAN IDENTIFY THE PEOPLE GROUPS THAT REMAIN UNTOUCHED BY THE GOSPEL. WE ARE ABLE TO GET THERE IN OUR GENERATION.  HOWEVER, THAT LAST PART OF THE JOURNEY MAY BE THE HARDEST, WHY?  BECAUSE IT WILL TAKE ALL OF US, CHURCHES, MISSIONARIES,  NATIONAL PARTNERS AND OUR "GREAT COMMISSION" PARTNERS TO SEE, AS NEVER BEFORE, THAT ALL PEOPLE COME TO KNOW JESUS CHRIST AS THEIR LORD AND SAVIOR.  IT'S A BEAUTIFUL VISION TO SEE PEOPLE  WHO SPEAK  KIRMANJKI AND KABYLE, THAI AND TATAR, USE SIGN LANGUAGE IN CZECH TO PRAISE AND GLORIFY GOD.
