The program will feature music by the Melashenko Four along with videos and mission reports from the 10/40 Window—an area of the world stretching from 10 degrees to 40 degrees north latitude. It includes North Africa, the Middle East, India, China and the Philippines. An estimated 97 percent of the 3 billion people who have never heard about Jesus live in the 10/40 Window.
The program will also feature lobby stations that showcase food and information from India and the Philippines. Other stations will share different aspects of Gospel Outreach ministries, with opportunities to connect, volunteer, discover, pray and give.
