“As India goes all of Asia goes with her.” 

Dr Billy Graham

Dr. Billy Graham said this in 1972, during his only crusade in India.

India has 1.3 billion people and there are millions of foreign-born Indian Nationals Living in the USA. When adding in all of Asia, this totals about 4.6 billion people. That’s the total population of all Asian countries as of 2019.

In essence, Dr Graham was saying that if we can make Christ known among the 1.3 billion people of India, they will help us to make Christ known among the 4.6 billion people in Asia. Not only does that cover the entire 10/40 window, but that is two-thirds of the earth’s total population!

As The Church reaches foreign-born internationals, they will reach other foreign-born nationals. Now that is truly changing the world!


How is “Asian” defined?

“Asian” refers to a person having origins in any of the original people groups of the Far East, Southeast Asia, or the Indian subcontinent. This includes Cambodia, China, India, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Pakistan, the Philippine Islands, Thailand, and Vietnam.

Here’s the breakdown by Religions or Faiths within the 4.6 Billion Asians: 

ReligionPopulation (%)
Hinduism25.3
Islam24.3
Unaffiliated*21.2
Buddhists11.9
Folk Religions9.0
Christian7.1
Other1.3
