images-2Chapter 7 is all about Truth. Amazima, means “truth” in Luganda.

Truth is most often used to mean being in accord with fact or reality

The truth can be staggering and nowhere is that more true than hearing or reading the statistics that Katie shares in chapter 7.

Truth – More than sixteen thousand children died of hunger-related causes in the last twenty-four hours. Another three thousand children in the world, mostly in Africa, will die of malaria today—malaria, which is both preventable and treatable.

Truth – There are 143 million orphaned children

Truth – 11 million children will starve to death or die from preventable diseases

Truth – 8.5 million children work as child slaves, prostitutes, or under other horrific conditions

Truth – 2.3 million children live with HIV

Truth – that adds up to 164.8 million needy children.

That’s a big number right!

Truth – There are 2.1 billion people on this earth who proclaim to be Christians.

Truth – If only 8 percent of the Christians would care for one more child, there would not be any statistics left.

images-1This is the Truth, like it or not, believe it or not. Now it’s my choice as to what i do with it if anything. But i know this, the truth is not affected by my choice to accept it or not. Katie says, that with truth comes the freedom, the opportunity to do something about it. She goes on to say, “The truth is that God loves these children just as much as He loves me and now that I know, I am responsible.”

Truth has become subjective in many areas these days. But these numbers are not subjective to my own preferences nor anyone else. They are what is actually taking place as i send out this post. i do not pretend to have any idea as to what anyone should do with these numbers, or this Truth. But i am fairly certain that doing nothing is not a legitimate option.

i have been posting for a lot of years and have just a small amount or subscribers, just over two hundred but then there are hundredsimages
who read occasionally and comment but choose not to officially sign up. i have shared about the adoption of my new granddaughter taking place HOPEFULLY in the first part of 2015. If the two hundred subscribers and the hundreds of readers would give just $5.00 each we could give $1,000.00 towards this adoption. Not one cent will go to me or any administrative cost. It will all go to making her adoption happen as quickly as possible.

Remember how Katie said that the statistics could go away… well if just a small portion of those who read or listen to “me an I AM” would give, we can make a difference for this little girl. Would you like to be part of the story in removing this little girl from the statistics?
