Save the Asians

A few days ago I was listening to EWTN Radio and I heard something I didn't know what to make of. One of the callers mentioned that she was concerned about the condition of the souls of people in Asia. According to her, the Christian missions during and after World War II did not effectively convert people in Asia to Christianity. Apparently, the Asians are materialistic, in the sense that they have everything they want, but that's eroding their souls. She believes that now is the time for missionaries to go to Asia and convert everyone over there.

I'm not sure what to make about this viewpoint, but I want to know if anybody who has this opinion can help me understand what it means.
