MISSIONS

People are the mission.

At Restoration Church, it’s all about Jesus! Our desire is to spread the name and fame of Jesus in places where it is not known. In all that we do, we want to engage people with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Our goal is to equip the local church and reach the unchurched in and through missions.

OPPORTUNITIES

Kuala Lumpur

Kuala Lumpur is the most strategic city you’ve never heard of. It is a regional hub in Southeast Asia for trade, finance, energy, and tourism. People from all over the world come to KL to shop, study, and work. It is more relaxed, family-friendly, and “livable” than most major metropolitan areas. There are an especially high number of people who come from restricted-access countries where there are few if any known Christians. Add to that the high number of unreached peoples that are indigenous to Malaysia, and you have an extremely strategic city for the advancement of the gospel. We want to impact KL to see it transformed into a strategic sending base for the gospel to advance around the world.

London

London proclaims itself the “capital of the world”—and for good reason. With a population of some 8.6 million people (estimates range as high as 14 million for the greater metro region), London is the largest city in Western Europe. Much of the world’s high-powered finance flows through its gleaming office towers and great investment houses. Population numbers and dollars, however, don’t tell the true tale of London’s global reach.

The Guardian newspaper confirmed London has become “a world in one city,” finding major and minor ethnic/language communities throughout the metropolis: Algerians, Bangladeshis, Chinese, Indians, Iranians, Jamaicans, Nigerians, Pakistanis, Poles, Russians, Somalis, Sri Lankans, Turks, Vietnamese—to name only a few groups. In some United Kingdom cities, two strangers bumping into each other by accident have less than a 50 percent chance of belonging to the same racial group, the newspaper reported.

The total area of London is 1,572 sq. km. (607 sq. mile) with a population density of 5,491 people per sq. km. And for sharing the gospel, this can be ideal. The vast majority of people don’t have a relationship with Jesus and more than likely have never met a true follower of Jesus. For instance, it’s reported that a twenty-something in the UK has a 97 percent chance of having never met a follower of Jesus in her entire life. If you’re intentional during your time in London, you’ll consistently find opportunities to meet people who’ve never heard the gospel.
