From the Office of Readings today a quote from Judges that reminds us, I think, that God doesn't need great numbers to accomplish His works:

The Lord said to Gedeon: “The people that are with you are many, and Madian shall not be delivered into their hands; lest Israel should glory against me, and say: ‘I was delivered by my own strength’. Speak to the people, and proclaim in the hearing of all: ‘Whosoever is fearful and afraid, let him go home’”.
