Could you live on that?

I'm in the middle of putting together a presentation about Niger and my ministry there in French. I'll be presenting it this Wednesday morning (feel free to pray hard). :)

It is commonly known that Niger is one of the poorest countries in the world but I thought I would just check out who else was on the list and where exactly Niger ranked. I found this article based on the CIA World Factbook 2008.

One quick fact that blew me away was that 63% of the total poplulation of Niger live on less than $1 a day.
The bottom line...
I just have no clue what it's like to live like that.


  1. We are praying...let us know what happens...
    Remember that 'feeling'....
    love ya

  2. You did such a great job today! I really liked how you showed all of the ways a person can serve as a missionary in Niger (also would apply elsewhere).

    On another note, just wanted to say that I'm glad you are my friend. You are such an encourager.
