There is something so significant about a person's last words. Think of the last words of Jesus to his followers, "I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this; I am with you always, even to the end of the age."
The scope of this statement, known as The Great Commission, compels us all to action. His desire is to see a representative from every tribe and language and people and nation - following Jesus - just as his disciples did 2,000 years ago.

MEDIA OUTREACH PROJECT
The purpose of the Pioneers Media Network is to proclaim the Gospel to the unreached world through digital media strategies that are reaching millions and converting thousands in closed and hostile areas.
This project builds on momentum generated by BLESS's prior support of media outreach in the Arab world. It will take digital media outreach to Muslims not just in the Arab world, but also in Indonesia, Bosnia, and Pakistan, while also testing outreach among Hindus and Buddhists in India and Nepal. In total, we hope that the Pioneers Media Network could proclaim the Gospel to over
1 million people in 2020.
$10,000 – 20,000 Website Visits from Arab Muslims

TRANS WORLD RADIO
TWR has boldly stepping out in faith to install a 200,000-watt medium wave (AM) transmitter along the Silk Road. This provides Gospel programming during evening prime time in parts of the world where the open proclamation of the Gospel is restricted and forbidden by law.
TWR is speaking HOPE to the world in 230 languages, in 190 countries. With your partnership, the new transmitter is reaching people through air waves that can travel where cross-cultural workers cannot.
ARAB WORLD MEDIA
Today, there is great persecution toward Christ-followers in many of the countries in the 10/40 Window. How do you encourage and equip them if you cannot physically get to them? The answer? The internet and social media.
Pioneers is a mission agency who is spearheading this initiative. Through a program called Arab World Media, Pioneers is seeing millions of Arabic speakers have the chance to hear the good news. Many are responding!
In the first few months of 2017 alone, Arab World Media has been responsible for 12,000 new Bible downloads, over 4,000 being discipled online and 109 converted to faith in Christ.
With a smartphone in the pocket of every Arab Muslim, the accessibility of media means we can go further than ever before and make a greater impact in people’s lives, no matter how hostile the environment. They’re literally changing the face of the Arab World!
