As I sit working on the REAL exciting stuff of budgets and invoices, I realise that I am blessed to have a brain that isn’t’ scared of numbers. In fact I am a little bit excited by them, or more by the significance of them.
I’m 30. That is the same age as Jesus started his ministry.
There are 7000 languages in the world, to some that is just a number, but when I only speak 1 of them badly, that number is huge! When over 2000 of them don’t have a single word of scripture, the % is WAY too high!
The tour is over. My life is a little more normal for a few months, yet I am amazed by what just happened in March. Here are some numbers!
Number of venues: 18
Total attendance: 3800
Response cards to stay in touch: 287
People who want to be a Wycliffe Voice in their church: 40
Bible fresh Manuals distributed: 125
Miles travelled: 2700 = 2 d 6h 32m on the road.
Now to a lot of you those are simply numbers. But we were aiming for 15 venues when we started out 9 months ago. 3800 people is about 1000 MORE that we hoped for. 2700 is about the same as going to Morocco and back or this side of Canada, quite some distance travelled!
All the fun of touring and the satisfaction of a job well done can’t really take away the need for so many people all over the world to find out about Jesus. My prayer is that the impact of this tour goes beyond the statistics on the page, but has some Kingdom impact.
