Bill Gates uses mosquitos for serman illustration

So OK, it wasn’t exactly a sermon but it was a great illustration. Bill Gates was promoting the efforts of his foundation to eliminate Malaria in the world at the TED conference. Malaria is primarily spread by mosquito bites in 2/3 world countries. Gates said, “Not only poor people should experience this” as he released a “swarm” of mosquitoes into the unsuspecting audience! He waited a minute before assuring them the bugs were disease free. I wonder if this guarantee is as iron clad as that purporting Windows Vista to be bug free :P. On the whole this is a great example of a secular sermon with a gripping illustration. Good job Bill!
