For some time now I have had a desire to go to Africa for a month just to see how bad the conditions are. I believe it would have a lasting effect on me.
The World Health Organization estimates that 33 percent of the current world population is under fed and another 33 percent is staving. Nearly one in four people live on less that $1 per day.
Here on the first day of 2010 I sit here with tears running now my face as I consider the terrible condition that this world is in, and it is only getting worse.
And if you think that is bad what about all the souls that are dying without salvation. According to the Bible the cause for all this suffering is sin.
I have made a commitment to myself to consume less resources and to completely thankful this year. Complainers are blind, heartless, and ignorance of how good they have it. May God wake them up!
Last week I started making a point of buying foods that are discounted. In the morning both No Frills and
Value Village [Value Mart] have lots of foods at 50% discount.
Below are picture of a couple of shops I have done where all that I bought was discounted foods.
