We had a Vision Day yesterday at Wycliffe, led by the UK Director, Eddie Arthur. One thing in particular which Eddie said struck me forcibly. When Jesus saw how harassed and helpless were the people coming to him, he said to his disciples,
“The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.” (Matthew 9:37–38)
What was the world population in Jesus’ day? Apparently about 100 million. How many people today do not have access to the Scriptures in a language they understand well? 200 million! Enough said. See the full statistics on our Wycliffe page (click the tab above).
