STATISTICS

I found this quite interesting.

Still grieved there 145,000,000 fatherless and only 136,001 of Americans are doing something about it.


Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.
James 1:27


It's a scary, scary thing, friends.  More of us need to realize our calling.

this makes me sad. and after reading James 1:27 I just want to shout: this is real. this needs to be obeyed. this isn't just words in a chapter that mean nothing. this is a calling that needs to be - must be - realized by many more people.

This breaks my heart into a millions of pieces...one break for every orphaned child. I read in the book "Kisses from Kate" (SO GOOD I can't recommend it enough!) that there are 2 billion Christians in the world, and if 8% of them adopted 1 child, there would be no orphaned children left. (This was when the number was 146 million I think...) But a change needs to be made.
