“Of the estimated hundreds of unreached peoples, here is a small glimpse of the reality that few know:
- El Cajon, California is home to “Little Bagdad,” with 60,000 Iraqis.
- Of the 30,000 Senegalese in New York, over half are Wolof Mourides.
- The Bay Area of California is home to “Little Kabul,” with tens-of-thousands of Afghans.
- Minneapolis, Seattle, and Columbus, Ohio are home to well over 100,000 Somalis.
- Irving, Texas is home to 5000 Kurds and Nashville is home to the largest number in the country—11,000.
- Punjabi Sikhs number 80,000 in New York.”
