Imagine being alive to see Jesus’ Second Coming – hearing the trumpet that wakes the dead, leaving the trials and cares of this world behind us, being changed in the twinkling of an eye. Would you like to hasten His return?
You can by adopting one or more Bible workers in the 10/40 Window. This is the area of the world where 97 percent of the unreached live. Millions and millions of honest-hearted people are searching. They need hope. They need the Saviour.
Gospel Outreach Canada donors like you sponsor more than 2,000 workers who are making friends, meeting the needs of the people, and sharing the story of Jesus and hope for the future. These workers are native to the countries in which they serve, so they know the religions, customs and language of their people. They can effectively reach their own people for an average stipend of $195 per month.
With 3+ billion people to reach in the 10/40 Window, there’s an immediate need for many more workers. Join us in sharing the exciting good news of Jesus’ soon return through sponsorship.
How does the Adopt-a-Worker program work?
Gospel Outreach Canada coordinates with Adventist missions, divisions, unions and conferences in the 10/40 Window to identify unentered areas for worker placement.
With your commitment to support one or more workers for a year, we’ll identify your worker(s) and village(s). We’ll update you on the progress of spreading the gospel in that area. In this way you can be a very real part of the work being done.
Jesus tells us that the gospel will be preached in all the world, and then the end will come. Help be the spark that lights the fire to finish the work.
What do I need to do?

Challenge of working for Christ
The apostle Paul continually faced dangers as he preached the gospel where the name of Christ had not been heard before. But with a calm faith and the passion of total commitment, he kept at it because he knew the value of a relationship with Christ. So he could say, “We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed” (2 Corinthians 4: 8, 9).
As stories from Gospel Outreach Canada evangelists reach us, we realize anew that very little has changed since Paul’s time. Our intrepid Gospel Outreach Canada workers face opposition from other religions and harassment from government officials. But with firmness and determination, they keep on with their work because they know the value of having Jesus in their lives. With Paul they can say, “Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man in being renewed day by day … while we do not look at the things which are seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal” (2 Corinthians 4:16,18).
We who live in the comfort and security of Canada may scarcely fathom the difficulties faced by our GOC workers in the 10/40 Window. But we can hold them up before our Father in prayer and be generous so they will have the means to carry forward their God-given tasks.
Jesus said, “Look up … your redemption draws near” (Luke 21:28). Thank you for your faithful support of Gospel Outreach Canada. Soon we and the redeemed from the entire world can rejoice together in God’s kingdom.
