Mark 16:15, NIV
He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.”

Pray that as believers read this verse, they will understand that “all the world” can include “safe” cities like Salt Lake City, Utah, USA.

Somali Bantu People in Salt Lake City, UT

Family… school… children… jobs… bills… giftings…
We can all add our own specific reasons to the list, reasons why we can’t go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. (Mark 16:5b) They are valid reasons because when we think of “going,” we think of selling all and relocating to some distant, often dangerous part of the globe where the gospel has yet to take root.
There’s no replacement for boots on the ground mission work. As if in response to the obstacles keeping us from going, God is doing something amazing: He is bringing the lost to us.
In Salt Lake City, for instance, there is now a concentration of Somalia Bantu. Would you rather share the Good News in the Horn of Africa, with al Shabaab terrorists looking for foreigners to kidnap, or in Utah, where the worst thing that can happen to you is you won’t be able to find a good coffee house?
If God is calling you to work among the Somali Bantu people, you can fulfill your call by catching a flight to Salt Lake City.

Pray for the Somali Bantus to have the opportunity to hear the gospel message in a way they can understand and embrace. Pray for the Lord to move in their hearts, draw them into relationships, and establish His Church and Kingdom among them.
