Partners,

In the six years I have had this circle of ministry I have never sent out a request like this one but I feel that God has moved upon my heart to do so with this one.

I just received this from a fellow minister and their ministry desperately needs help. Please read his letter and pray about this need.

This ministry is authentic and honest and your help will surely be for a good cause. As for us we are going to help them try to get these supplies delivered.

Many of us helping even a little will mean great blessings deposited in our storehouse in heaven. Please send your correspondence directly to the address below.

Thanks Tons and I know that God will bless you abundantly for helping.

In His Love and Mine,
Rev. Carol M.

I am frustrated. I am angry. I am disappointed.


I just got off the phone with our friend Keith Dye, a Canadian missionary to the extremely poor Lagunitas, Sonora, Mexico. Keith and several other missionaries from Whitehorse, Yukon, Canada serves Lagunitas through Jerusalem Evangelical Ministries. They feed and provide medical and dental care to the population made up mostly of women and children, abandoned by their husbands who have illegally entered the United States to find work.
< p />
Keith and his partners are equipping a free clinic in Lagunitas and they desperately need medical and dental equipment to treat the hurting and hungry people there.


Why am I frustrated, angry, and disappointed.


Because our old friend JB Roberts has in his warehouse in Olton, Texas, just exactly the right equipment Keith needs for the women and kids in Lagunitas.


And all it will take for us to move it from the warehouse where it is just collecting dust and doing no one any good what so ever to the place where it can immediately be pressed into service, providing comfort, healing, and relief to the least of these is about


500 GALLONS OF DIESEL FUEL


Yes, only about $1700 will salvage several hundre d thousand dollars worth of this wonderful equipment.


PLEASE, YOU CAN HELP WITH THIS


Last year, about 75% of the total revenue of Keith’s little church went to missions.


Last year, less than 5% of the total revenue of the Chihuahuan Connection came from churches.


I wonder which statistic Jesus likes best.

Chasin' Jesus,
Rocket Rick

FAITH UNDER FIRE!
BY CHRIS PANOS PUBLISHED BY THE LOCKMAN FOUNDATION IN 1954!
THIS is an old book that I found in the second hand store. It cost me .27 cents. It looks very good, but I haven't read it yet. This is about the days when it was illegal to take Bibles into Russia, and a missionary who risks his life for the Lord! If you can find it, it should be worth reading!

On May 11, 2008, Brother Andrew, the founder of Open Doors International, will celebrate his 80th birthday. In this edition of Frontline, you’ll read some of the highlights of his extraordinary life… and his continuing challenge for believers to care for the persecuted members of Christ’s Body.

As I celebrate my 80th birthday, I have been looking back over my life and a great many things have changed. To begin with the smallest and most insignificant: I myself have changed!

But just as if it was yesterday, I remember my very first trip to a communist country. I can hardly believe it was over 50 years ago! There, in a crowded church, they let me speak to the congregation. I remember clearly the promise I made that day: We will pray for you!

FROM MY PERSPECTIVE
by Carl Moeller
President, Open Doors USA

We are thrilled to celebrate the significant occasion of Brother Andrew’s 80th birthday!

I am sure you will agree that he continues to be an inspiration for all of us… especially when you read about his latest visit to Gaza. It’s a privilege to be a part of his ongoing ministry!

When I traveled with Brother Andrew to Gaza, I realized just how God has used him in so many lives. That is a trip I will never forget... and an experience being alongside Brother Andrew that I will always cherish.

He wipes his eyes with his sleeve and pauses for a moment. "I guess what breaks my heart is, I see or imagine what it must be like for God to look down on that, to see what's happening to those children, to see what's happening to innocence," he says.

"I've just sat and wondered how He even lets it go on. And I can tell you that I've been at the end of myself with righteous indignation, anger, despair.

"Justice is an interesting thing," he continues. "Justice in a world that is consumed by sin—well, we don't often find it. But as Christians we're supposed to give it and labor in the light of Genesis 18:25 that says the judge of all the earth will do right."

If you listen to Turner, who founded SWI in 1998, you might get an image of Chuck Norris taking on the Viet Cong or Indiana Jones tracking down the ark of the covenant. But there's nothing glamorous about anything SWI does.

It's tiresome, challenging and very precarious work. Yet for the better part of 15 years, Turner has been going into the most dangerous regions to provide aid and comfort to victims of war, disaster and persecution.

"The economy that I see and what we try to stand for is about radical self-denial," Turner says. "When all hell is breaking loose, it's our job to bring a little piece of heaven back in.

"That's what puts us in Bosnia. That's what put us in Kosovo. That's what puts us in Chechnya, Pakistan, Afghanistan or Iraq during the war."

Crisis in the Congo

Samaritan’s Purse is rushing emergency aid to thousands of people who have been displaced by escalating violence in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Our DC-3 cargo plane landed in the provincial capital of Goma today, carrying a second load food, blankets, medical supplies, and shelter materials. In recent weeks more than 250,000 people have been driven from their homes and are struggling to survive.

“People are just flooding in and the camps are being overwhelmed,” said Dr. Warren Cooper, who is leading the Samaritan’s Purse disaster relief team in Goma.

“The kids are thin and look malnourished, and I think it’s going to get worse. Nutrition is a huge need.”

to Dr. Cooper’s firsthand report from Goma.

Help Displaced Families Survive

Dear Donna,
She came here three months ago, fleeing a bloody battle between soldiers in her hometown of Rugari. With one tiny infant swaddled to her back, another child in tow and whatever meager belongings she could carry, she struggled to reach the Kibumba displacement camp. But just when she thought she'd found refuge, shots rang out again. So she found herself trudging down craggy roads and through heavy brush in search of a safe place for her kids.

Now 21-year-old Elizabeth Aziza lives in a tent pitched at an orphanage on the outskirts of Goma, a city in eastern Congo that has seen its population swell by a quarter-million people over the last few months. Nearly all escaped their villages as they were attacked. Most lost their homes. Many saw their loved ones killed.

Elizabeth has suffered all three. Today, she spends her days in a crowded communal tent alongside dozens of others - mostly women and children - who were suddenly forced from the lives they'd always known. She used to grow and sell her own food; now she must depend on others to satisfy that need.

People just like you can help make her days a little easier.

For a year and a half, Mercy Corps has been there for displaced young mothers like Elizabeth. We're providing clean, fresh water to the orphanage where she lives - more than 10,500 gallons each day. We're building latrines and furnishing hand-washing stations to help prevent deadly diseases like cholera. And we're providing firewood and improved cookstoves that protect Congo's fragile environment while helping families meet their most basic needs. Our 60-person team reaches thousands of people each day with lifesaving assistance. You can help them do even more.

Life in war-ravaged eastern Congo is about surviving until tomorrow. Elizabeth hopes one day to return home and plant her fields once again. Until that day comes, she and her children - and more than a million others who've been displaced - need your help.

Please give today.

Dear Donna Matthews,german martyrs
 
Would you take a moment to join us in prayer for the safety of six fellow believers who were kidnapped by suspected al-Qaeda linked terrorists in Yemen?  

On June 12, a group of Christians, including 7 Germans, 1 British man and 1 South Korean were kidnapped while picnicking in the northern Yemeni province of Saada. The believers were aid workers based at al-Jumhuri hospital in northern Yemen.  

Three days later, the bodies of two Germans, Rita Stumpp, 26, and Anita Gruenwald, 24 (picture at right), as well as a South Korean woman, Eom south korean martyrYoung Sun, 33 (picture at bottom right), were found in el-Nashour, in northern Yemen.

Yemeni security officials have been searching for the other six Christians who are still missing. They are: Johannes Henschel and his wife Sabine, a German couple, and their three children - Lydia, 4, Anna, 3, and Simon, 11-months, and an unnamed British man.

Please pray for:

-    Comfort and strength for the families of the three murdered believers.

-    Strength and comfort for the six still missing. Ask God to give them hope and faith as they go through this ordeal.

-    The success for security officials in finding the six missing believers.  

-    For Muslims in Yemen to open up to the gospel of Jesus Christ.
 
Sincerely in Christ,
