- - Moral failure among Christian leaders continues at a high level.
- - America has become the 3rd largest mission field in the world.

Mar. 6, 2008 - Evangelist Luis Palau laments the decline of evangelism in the U.S. and encourages Christians to share their faith boldly. Without evangelism, the church cannot grow. He says:
