Why do we work to see the gospel come into every cultural nook and corner of the human species?

That would be because it:

gives strength to the weak and comfort to the sad

straightens the crooked

empowers the poor

restores purity and wholeness to the soiled and damaged

rebuilds broken families

turns substance-abusers into useful members of society

offers hope to the broken

helps people forgive the unforgiveable

provides community to the lonely and care for the sick

drives movements of social justice

lets the shamed find mercy and the pleasure-lovers find meaning

reconciles enemies

welcomes strangers

masters our fears

steers the hot-headed into thoughtfulness, wisdom and peace

underlines the beauty of an ordinary life

takes the sting out of death

opens the way for forgiveness of our sins and peace with God
