In the BP story, “IMB trustees elect new finance v.p., urged to ‘close the gap’ on lostness,” dated 3/14/01, please make the following corrections:
–In the 10th paragraph from the bottom, change the increase in new churches to 37.4 percent from 16.7 percent.
— Please replace the 7th paragraph from the bottom with this one:
Half the world’s lost people, Garrison noted, live in two of 14 regions identified by the International Mission Board: Central/Southern Asia and East Asia. Southern Baptists, however, haven’t deployed half their missionaries in those regions. And while Southern Baptist congregations are taking in more than $7 billion a year, they invest only 2 percent of that total in world missions through the International Mission Board.
