147 Million Orphans

Did you know that there are 147 million orphans in the world?

That number seems astronomical.

Until you realize that there are 2.1 BILLION (with a B) self-proclaimed Christ followers in the world.

Which means if only 8% of those claiming to be a Christian would sponsor a child, it would end orphan hunger IN THE WORLD.

In the whole world.

Pro 31:8-9 "Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy."
