The wife got back from the convention, and mentioned one point from the CO talk.
He gave the statistic that on average, there are about 780 people baptized every day in the world! Everyone was amazed.
I broke it to her that there used to be a lot more. I recall giving a talk and at that time there were around 1200/day. (likely 15 or 20 years ago)
I'm sure it's going to be a downward trend for a long time.
