North America Overview
By definition North America is the continent bordered to the north by the Arctic Ocean, to the east by the Atlantic Ocean, to the west and south by the Pacific Ocean, and to the southeast by South America and the Caribbean Sea. It is home to 565 million people living in 23 independent states. Its largest countries are the United States, Canada, Greenland, and Mexico, and its three primary languages are English, Spanish, and French.
For HeartCry's purposes, however, North America is comprised of the United States, Canada, Greenland, and the other non-Spanish-speaking countries. The Spanish-speaking countries of North America are considered part of the Latin America region.
Currently HeartCry is privileged to support five missionaries in Canada. These men are pastors, church planters, and evangelists with a burden to reach their cities with the gospel. They believe God's method for saving and sanctifying the lost world is His Word and His Church.
