1) SO WHAT’S UP WITH JOSHUA PROJECT II? — Remember AD2000’s thrust to list the world’s least reached peoples, the Joshua Project 2000 list of unreached peoples? Remember how the JP2000 list spun out into its own under the banner of “Joshua Project II”? Well recently, their lease ran out, so to speak, and their future was, for a while, a bit uncertain. But thanks goes to World Help for adopting the people with the adoption list! World Help, an international ministry based in Forest, Virginia, has taken Joshua Project II into its fold. Joshua Project II is a continuation and expansion of the original Joshua Project initiative created by the AD2000 & Beyond Movement. It is an effort to “highlight least-reached peoples through information sharing and networking.” World Help is actively involved in facilitating church-planting movements, leadership training and Bible distribution among the least-reached peoples. Three cheers for their vision, insight, and courage to take risks for the sake of the lost! World Help and Joshua Project II will soon release a comprehensive unreached / least-reached ethno-cultural list of all people groups, regardless of size. This list, planned for release in the spring of 2002, will help provide a Great Commission blueprint or roadmap, revealing the extent of the unfinished task of world evangelism.

Incredible. One of our own workers in mainland China recently discovered the page and later remarked to me what a treasure trove it is. Thanks to Wycliffe for making this material available online. We’ve heard rumors that if you are unable to access the web, you can write Martin & Jenny Lloyd <mlloyd3000ataoldotcom> and obtain information by email or CD. Great stuff. Thanks Martin. And thanks to the mainland China worker who brought it to our attention. What a great friend he’s been to me down through the past 13 years or so!</mlloyd3000ataoldotcom>
