In essence, researching the people groups of the world is AN UNENDING TASK. No matter how much time we work cross-culturally, cultures are constantly changing, people are continually migrating from place to place, and technology and travel is ever dispersing where people make a living and rest their head.
Therefore, learning where people groups reside becomes an unending task. As such, researching becomes extremely important because of how quickly data written years earlier becomes irrelevant.
