It’s not right. It’s not just. It is sin.

At least 1.5 billion people in the world have NEVER even heard about Christ and the Good News. How easily that number slides off our lips with little comprehension of what it means!

One of the problems is that we are myopic and see what is close to us. That is why 97.5% of the money in the offering plates stays at home and only 2½ % gets to the rest of the world. That is why less than one tenth of one percent of Southern Baptists become missionaries. This is not right. This is not just. This is sin.

That is a quote from Avery Willis in his recent letter in which he informed those of us in the International Orality Network that he has been diagnosed with leukemia and likely has only months to live.

We forget how dark it is without Christ for those who have never heard, who have no hope, who don't even know that there is a Hope.
