What Kind of Testimony Do We Have?

We, my family, recently received David Wilkerson's newsletter. If you don't know who He is or don't receive his newsletters go check him out. With that came this World Challenge Missions Update by Gary Wilkerson which is extremelly sad and very convicting.

Worldwide Statistics...

6,571,497,332 people now live on earth
1,200,000,000 people live on 23 cents a day
2,000,000,000 people have no electricity
80% of all people live in substandard housing
1,000,000,000 people are without safe drinking water (a huge issue in El Salvador)
Every 16 sec. someone dies of hunger
57,000,000 people died in 2006
10,500,000 of these were children less than five years old
14,000,000 children were orphaned because of HIV/AIDS
2,000,000 children have died as a direct result of armed conflict during the last 10 years


$8,000,000,000.00 were spent on cosmetics in America in 2006
$11,000,000,000.00 for ice cream in Europe

Jesus Said..."And when you hear of wars and insurrections, don't panic. Yes, these things must come, but the end won't follow immediately. Then He added, Nations and kingdoms will proclaim war against each other. There will be great earthquakes, and there will be famines and epidemics in many lands, and there will be terrifying things and great miraculous signs in the heavens. But before all this occurs, there will be a time of great persecution. You will be dragged into synagogues and prisons, and you will be accused before kings and governors of being my followers. This will be your opportunity to tell them about me." Lk. 21:9-13

Question... It is our turn, what kind of testimony do we have?
