I have begun reading a bit about Bruce Wilkinson's unsuccessful attempt to bring lasting help to Africa. It is sobering, thought-provoking, and convicting. I hope Rick Warren is reading these articles too! I will post more as I continue to digest these. Here are a couple of articles.
Sojourner's "The Prayer of Jabez falls short in Africa"
Christianity Today's "The Lessons of Jabez"
What do you think?
