WHAT COULD HALF-AN-ESPERANTIST MEAN?

Sometimes ideas worth writing about here escape me. This week I was thinking of a simple theme based on a brief account of a famous preacher (D.L. Moody) in the 19th century.

He was considered to be a "saver of souls." At the beginning of his ministry, he came home from a meeting where he had preached. A friend asked him, "How many souls were saved tonight?"

The famous preacher answered: "Two and one-half."

The friend said, "Two adults and one child?"

He answered emphatically, "No, no. Two children and one adult. Understand, I consider the children have their complete lives to serve God, but the grown-up has only a small part left of his life to serve God!"

An interesting way to look at it, isn't it?

A child recruited (to Esperanto, in our case) is worth more because the child can study, learn and become expert for many future decades.

I admit that I am not qualified to recruit children, which is a separate specialty. If this is of interest to you, visit Children Around the World at: http://www.cxlm.org

Of course, we recruit adults and grown-ups most of the time, and we should never forget that God chose Moses to liberate the Children of Israel when Moses was 80 years old!
