A Thought and a Picture

Below is a picture from Madagascar. It was taken from a helicopter. We were leaving a village that had heard of Jesus and the Bible for the first time that day. We spent a few hours teaching them the Story, and left them with Bibles.


Here is another picture. We did not stop at this village. We flew right over it. The people that you see in this picture have never heard of the Bible nor of Jesus. I don’t know if they ever will.


I needed to see these pictures again, because my comfortable Christianity tries to lull me from the compelling reality of the world’s unevangelized. I also needed to hear again what Jesus said when He looked at needy people:

Seeing the people, He felt compassion for them, because they were distressed and dispirited like sheep without a shepherd. Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Therefore beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest.”

(Matthew 9:36-38)

    Hearing about the fact that there are so many people without knowledge of Christ moves me to much prayer…and I sure am looking forward to the opportunity to do something about it!
