To the Moon and Back

I've never quoted from a Christian fund raising letter before, but this is interesting:

Imagine something over 700,000 miles long that is growing by almost 20 miles each day. Something of that size could wrap around the earth's equator 28 could stretch from the earth to the moon, back to the earth, and then back to the moon again. That is a picture of what the unevangelized population of the world would look like if we were to stand each person side-by-side in a line.

The unevangelized population is 1,850,402,000 people in mid-2007, based on estimates from The Center for the Study of Global Christianity at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary.

People still need to hear about Jesus. Would that include anyone you know?
