10/40 Connections exists to cast hope to unreached peoples so that they hear, experience, and multiply the Good News of Jesus. We do so by connecting the Body of Christ, equipping believers, and engaging the least reached. We equip church planters, rescue women from trafficking, start schools in slum areas, install water wells and promote a strong pro-life message. All of our ministries merge the Word and Deed of the Gospel and aim toward planting multiplying groups among the least reached.

Dig bore wells that plunge 180 feet into the earth to attain clean drinking water for unaccessed villages of North India. Relationships are built with local leaders and they (the local panchyat) provide concrete and donated public land while we provide the bore well. Through this partnership, villagers own and care for the well, and the honor of local church planters increases. We have installed over 95 water wells and have blessed over 40,000 people with clean water. Each well costs $884.
Among Urdu speakers, literacy merges with disciple-making instruction. With two motorcycles, four teachers, 11 villages, and nearly 200 students these classes reach into remote villages and lift up whole families and communities. Last year 65 people accepted Christ and in the process they also learned to read. Some read the Christmas story for the first time, another correctly read a contract and saved his family from being cheated, and older man gave a huge smile, & a young mom signed her name.
Lunch Change offers a direct & powerful point of access for you to impact the slums of India. Slum revitalization in India addresses the issue of poverty with a holistic approach through starting schools. Children receive education, daily food, medical check-ups, love from their teachers, and Christian songs and stories. Of the 23 schools we have started, 20 are now sustained by local tithing (through 75 new house churches). Each school of 30 children costs $4,000 per year to run.
At the border between Nepal and India, many young girls & women are trafficked into India. 10/40 has established a 25-bed safe home for victims of trafficking. Rescue at the borders leads to learning vocational skills & finding reputable jobs after leaving the home. When women return to their villages they often plant churches. The strategy enables us to extend both the justice & hope of Christ.
“Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves!” says Proverbs 31:8. Our Voice for the Voiceless curriculum instructs audiences about the God-given value of females and the babies they carry. Merging science and the Gospel, audiences understand women’s health, baby development, nutrition, and the truth of abortion (from the pro-life side). Domestic violence declines, repentance increases, families heal, and lives are spared from death. $5,850 will open a new language and train teachers.
"Deep hope" - that is the meaning of Ummeed, our church planting and leadership development process. The majority of these first generation Christians show hot hearts for Jesus, and God has moved powerfully through these humble sisters. Over the past 11 years we have equipped more than 1,400 women as church planters, and they labor among 53 people groups (at least!). Equipping 40 women for a whole year involves two, week-long intensive sessions and costs $2.700.
