Staggering Numbers

Check out these devastating results from the last census (

-Girls without a father in their life are two and a half times as likely to get pregnant and 53 percent more likely to commit suicide.

-Boys without a father in their life are 63 percent more likely to run away and 37 percent more likely to abuse drugs.

-Both girls and boys are twice as likely to drop out of high school, twice as likely to end up in jail and nearly four times as likely to need help for emotional or behavioral problems.

In Matthew chapter 28, Jesus gives us one of the greatest commands of all time - "Go ye therefore and make disciples!"
