Micah 6:8 – Freedom Fighter words

I don’t think anything moves the heart of the freedom fighter into knowing they are following God more than the words of Micah.
Do Justice.
Love Mercy.
Walk humbly with God.
So simple, yet so desperately needed in our broken and unjust world.

I’m drinking only tap water during Lent so Ugandans can have safe water. Join me?

40 Days of Water is being coordinated by blood:water mission February 22 – April 7, 2012. This is the season of Lent – the 40 days before Easter. My plan is to drink only tap water (NOT bottled water) for these 40 days. Collectively we track the money saved on soft drinks, coffee, tea, juices, etc… and give it to enable Ugandans to have clean water sources.

5 Minute Challenge – Iran

Ethnic Persians are by definition Muslim, so ethnic Christian converts are considered apostates. Almost all Christian activity is illegal – from evangelism to Bible training to publishing Christian books. Many church services are monitored by the secret police. The governor of Tehran has criticized Christian evangelicalism as a ‘corrupt and deviant movement’ and ‘a cultural invasion …

Pray for the Christians on the Maldive islands – that they will be brave among the secrecy. Pray that God will make Himself known.

5 Minute Challenge – Uzbekistan

Uzbek Christians strive to live with faith in God’s promises, despite the fear of surveillance, intimidation and imprisonment. Private Bible study meetings are always in danger of being closed down. Churches are raided and literature and other materials confiscated. Printing or importing Christian literature is prohibited. Christians are fined or given short-term prison sentences. When brought to court, fair treatment is not ensured.

5 Minute Challenge – Yemen

In January of 2011, the people of Yemen joined numerous other Arab countries and began protesting unemployment in the country, the economic conditions and corruption. Yemen is the poorest Arab country due to widespread corruption, low education levels, violence and mismanagement. Official statistics say that one out of every three Yemenis is unemployed, especially younger citizens. Almost half of the population lives under poverty line. Islam is the State religion, and Shari’a, the Islamic law, is the source of all legislation. The Government forbids conversion from Islam and proselytizing of Muslims. Family and the government are the main sources of oppression and persecution.

A Comparison: The cost of your lunch versus a meal provided by FMSC

This week at my church we’re excited to pack meals with a great organization – Feed My Starving Children. We have multiple sessions planned with a goal of 240 volunteers each session. It’s a big deal! And LOTS of fun. How often do you get to see fairly simple manual labor by children and grandparents and everyone in between become meals that will feed many hungry kids in desperate need? AND you get to wear a great hairnet…

5 Minute Challenge – Iraq

Pray for Iraq! Sectarian violence caused tens of thousands of Christians to leave the country in 2011. Christians feel that the government fails to protect them, with individuals being threatened, robbed, raped or kidnapped and churches being bombed. Iraq’s constitution says each individual has freedom of thought, conscience and belief, but there is no article on changing one’s religion and Islamic law forbids conversion of Muslims to other religions
