More people have cell phones than electricity.
While over 96% of the world’s population has access to a cell phone, 1.5 billion people do not have access to electricity. In the Third World, 79% of the people have no electricity. Yes, they can talk on their phones while they carry water jugs home. So what is the best way to reach these people for Christ? Their mobile device.
