Loren Cunningham Wants to End Bible Poverty. Let's Help Him.

I first heard Loren Cunningham, the founder of Youth With A Mission, speak in the fall of 1972. 

At the time, Loren was 37 years old with a bit of long hair (Jesus Revolution days). I was nineteen.

From the first moments I heard him, I knew that he was in touch with God and carried a bigger-than-normal vision for world evangelization.

This past weekend, I had the privilege of hearing Loren speak again in Lynden, Washington. He is now 80 years old and a senior statesman in world missions.

In 1905, three European journalists visited the very primitive nation of Mongolia. At that time there were no cities, just scattered settlements of nomadic tribes. The nation was Buddhist, extremely poor, and forty percent of the young men were Buddhist monks—with rampant venereal diseases among them.

Upon leaving Mongolia, the three journalists wrote that Mongolia would not exist as a nation in twenty years.

It didn’t happen. In 2015, a culture of life is replacing a culture of death. In the Western world the opposite is true—a life-giving culture is spirally downward into death.

What can we learn from Mongolia about cultures of life and death?
