    Wow!! Once again WOW!! One of the first things that came to my mind was a bible passage that says judgement will not come until all peoples of the earth have been given a chance to hear the gospel. Who would have thought that there are still people like this?? No tv, no iPhone, no BB (ok I'm digressing but seriously, who would have thought people still live like this?) Wow...
