Christianity Brings Transformation

In these drastically dire times, it's hard to find good news. I was recently alerted to an article in The London Times entitled, "As an atheist, I truly believe Africa needs God," written by Matthew Parris. He concludes, "Missionaries, not aid money, are the solution to Africa's biggest problem." Notice what he says about the difference Christians are making:
...I've become convinced of the enormous contribution that Christian evangelism makes in Africa: sharply distinct from the work of secular NGOs, government projects and international aid efforts. These alone will not do. Education and training alone will not do. In Africa Christianity changes people's hearts. It brings a spiritual transformation. The rebirth is real. The change is good.

Thanks to Bob Osborne, Executive Director of World Harvest Mission, for calling attention to this article. You can read the entire article by going to whm.org/goodnews and clicking on "As an atheist, I truly believe Africa needs God."
