Many unreached peoples live in regions of the world where missionary activity is frowned upon or even illegal. In those areas using security precautions such as the following, is crucial. However, that is not to imply that these suggestions are necessary among every unreached people. Agencies and field personnel can advise you on the security needs of your people.
