The Lord is moving among one of Sudan’s unreached people groups, or UPGs.

With a less than two-percent Christian population, UPGs have no access to the Gospel. Sudan’s 100+ languages reflect diverse people groups and tribes, and 130 of the country’s 162 people groups are unreached.

“A couple of years ago, one of the tribal people groups was listed as ‘no believers.’ When I was in Sudan, there were at least six, and now there’s more than 20 of them,” unfoldingWord CEO David Reeves says, leaving the group unnamed for security purposes.

These new believers are working with unfoldingWord to change their label from ‘unreached’ to ‘reached.’ “They’re involved in translating our Bible story sets into their mother tongue,” Reeves says.

Church planting partners often tell unfoldingWord, “the national language is inadequate to communicate the love of Jesus to (unreached) people; I need a village language or tribal language,” he continues.
