(Christian Institute)— Around 450,000 children between the ages of 11 and 15 in England and Wales gambled in a week, according to a Gambling Commission report.
Of those, it is thought that 9,000 are problem gamblers.
The “Young People and Gambling” report, published last week, found that 16 per cent of children of this age had gambled in the week prior to the survey—at least twice the percentage of those who took drugs, drank alcohol, or smoked.
Dear Reader, because of your generous support, we have received enough funds to send many audio Bibles to Iraqi and Syrian refugees displaced by ISIS in the Middle East. Many have been distributed and received with gladness. Now, as the cold winds of winter blow in, we are seeking to also meet the physical needs of the people by providing fuel-operated heaters for the refugees and their children to stay warm. Would you join us by making a donation today to this important work (James 2:16)?Please click here to send a heater to a refugee family >>
