The future is now...

Here's a couple facts on Mozambique::
* Life expectancy is 40 years
* 7th worst infant mortality rate – 1 in 10 children die before the age of 1
* 1 in 5 children are malnourished
* 1.4 million orphans – .5 million due to losing parents from HIV/AIDS
* 14% of population have HIV
* Only 43% of the population have access to clean water
* The literacy rate is only 40%
* Only 50% of children finish primary school
* Only 7% of students go on to secondary school

Children are our most valuable natural resource.
– Herbert Hoover

I'm praying these babies grow healthy and strong!
I'm praying they know Jesus' love at an early age!
I'm praying they bring their country from darkness to Light!

This is amazing! I actually have had the amazing opportunity to go to Mozambique last year along with this year. I began to write my journal on my blog but it was to precious to put into words. I think I would not be able to give it the honor it deserves. Africa, specifically Mozambique, has a special place in my heart.
