BACK FROM INDIA!

Having just returned from 12 days in India ministering to persecuted pastors from Orissa, I can only say that I am humbled to have met some of the most courageous joyful men of God who literally have lost all, but not their faith in Jesus. Some of them without a doubt will be martyrs themselves. Many of these pastors literally beat rocks all day and take the pebbles to sell for cement hoping to gain a dollar a day. They have seen things that I will not write here, but yet they sing and worship like no one I have ever seen.

These men are heroes of the faith, but they would not accept that, they would simply want to be good pastors for their people who have been scattered like they are. Theses pastors are targeted and are in danger every day. There are also pastors wives who are widows who are in need and of course orphans. Unless you go and see these men it is hard to understand, but one thing we can do here is help them financially. I will in the near future give you all opportunity to be a part of helping this situation to the glory of God. Pray for the pastors of Orissa as well as the widowed pastors wives and the orphans.

IT IS HAPPENING!


in a telling moment, Hawaii's state Senate overwhelmingly approved a bill Wednesday to celebrate "Islam Day. This is one of the most noteworthy events that has gone under the radar. Many people have no idea what happened this week and the ramifications. For a state in our country to celebrate an official Islam day is more proof that the leaders of this great nation are asleep at the wheel. Not that I expect this administration to voice any opposition to such a move. But I would think that those in the loyal opposition would at least make some noise. I understand that this is a state issue and not a federal one, but I also know that this has federal implications.

Lets face the facts, we were attacked by adherents to Islam. Lets face more facts, the tenets of Islam are clear in their instruction to kill and conquer all who do not bow to the prophet Mohammad. And even clearer facts are that those who follow the "prophet" have made it clear that Israel is the little Satan and America is the great Satan. For any state of our great union to call for an Islam day, is beyond the pale of common sense.

But it has happened and the march of Islam continues. In much the same way the homosexuals invaded the minds and institutions of our country, Islam follows suit. It is already being asked that certain parts of our country adhere to Sharia Law. Point being this is not going to stop on its own. This invasion will not stop unless or until someone stops it. How that happens is any ones guess as there does not seem to be the will or stomach for such action. So the Sharia beat goes on, hide your women and your Bibles, because here comes the followers of the "prophet"!
