Fact: West Africa has dire spiritual and material needs.
Fact: Christians have a mandate, from the Lord God, and from the Saviour who bled for us and bought us, to do something about both of these.
I read about the material needs in secular sources often, with at-least-implicit encouragements to do more to help.
Concerning the small part of the Christian web that I look at from time to time (broadly conservative evangelicalism), I hear almost nothing about either.
Why is this?
