Through their travels, the Wurmbrands spread the message of the atrocities that Christians face in restricted nations, while establishing a network of offices dedicated to assisting the persecuted church. 
Today there are more than 6,000 unreached people groups in the world. These are peoples among which there is no indigenous community of believing Christians with adequate numbers and resources to evangelize the people group.
