Numbers Help us Understand the World

Presently our research team is reading the book Factfulness by Hans Rosling. Rosling's life work focused on using data to understand our ever changing world. Check out his TED talks on YouTube to catch his creative use of numbers to help audiences grasp how the world is changing for the better. Likewise in mission work, we need good numbers to guide and evaluate our efforts. But we also need to talk to people to gain a deeper understanding of all the factors impacting mission work.
