Having traveled around the world doing missions work for the past 8 years, I’ve seen a lot of people who are trapped in poverty and living in slums. I ran across this photo blog today via the Boston Globe. It captures the reality of 1 BILLION people around the world.
Sometimes I need a reminder of the things I’ve seen and the people I’ve met. This was a big reminder this morning. Several months ago I said that I wanted to do a blog series on “What You Should Know” and highlight issues, people, circumstances, and news from around the world. I want to keep that going starting with this post and the link to this photo blog.
After taking a look at these pictures, leave a comment here and let me know what you think about poverty, the reality of slum life, and the people you’ve met that live in these conditions. What I love most about this blog is that there are pictures from places I’ve been in Kenya, Cambodia, Haiti, and India. Many of you who might read this have been to these places as well. What was your experience?
