Morgan’s grandparents regularly attended church, but her parents did not. As a family, they never prayed together, never read the Bible, and never talked about their Christian roots.

    He’s also finding new faith in Christ.

    Unreached

    Bawer comes from Kurdistan, Iraq, where many people practice Islam or at least come from a Muslim background. Kurmanji Kurds, of which there are 15 million in the world, are considered “unreached” because very few are followers of Christ.
