Look at those eyes.

They go on forever. Dark as night.

His feet were bare on a 40 degree day. He's growing up in a village where the community plants mustard and harvest it to produce mustard oil. The village Imam deliberates before a central fire with a hookah. This boy probably gets to go to school, unlike his sisters.

The adult who spoke with us shared his perspectives about American Christians. 65% of American children are born out of wedlock. Men in America may not have multiple wives but they all have multiple mistresses.

But how would they know differently? They live in a tiny village without vehicles. A bicycle, maybe a motorcycle, but in general they will only see what is within walking distance. How do we extend a hand of friendship?

Look at those eyes, dark as night...
