Amish Population Has Nearly Doubled

An interesting tid-bit:

In the last 16 years, the Amish population Christians who reject most modern conveniences and rely on horse-drawn carriages has nearly doubled, according to researchers from Elizabethtown College's Young Center for Anabaptist and Pietist Studies. Over the same period, Amish settlements have been established in seven new states Arkansas, Colorado, Maine, Mississippi, Nebraska, Washington and West Virginia putting them in at least 28 states from coast to coast.

There are two ways to expand Christ's Kingdom - new birth and re-birth. Since their conversion rate is pretty low, it's nice to see they are getting the be fruitful and multiply part down!
