Monday night in Perspectives I heard a mind-boggling statistic:


The average life expectancy of someone who has just become a Christian in Somalia is 45 days.

That is kind of sad....but they do get to be with Christ sooner!

Somalia also has many, many people groups who have never heard the gospel. Many organizations will not send people there because it's so dangerous. Pray for us as we (and some friends of ours) consider going to the nomadic people of Somalia.
