A Slap in the Face!
Statistics should be like a slap in the face, they should get our attention! Then, we as Christians, need to do something about them.
There are 400,000 child slaves in Haiti, 1.2 million street children in the Philippines and 160 million worldwide. There are 13 million AIDS orphans in Africa and 143 million orphans worldwide.
This sheer number of needy children is just one reason why weare praying for hundreds of additional missionaries to take the gospel and compassionate care to needy children worldwide.
