Throughout February, members of the largest Christian minority in the Middle East, the Copts, were slaughtered. The Islamic State released a video in mid-February depicting 21 poverty-stricken Coptic Christians being decapitated in Libya, where these men had gone to find work. While holding their victims’ bodies down, Islamic State members shoved their fingers in the Christians’ eyes, craned their heads back, and sliced away at their throats with knives — all in the name of Allah and Islam, even as the slaughtered called out to the “Lord Jesus Christ.” Continue Reading…
THOUGHTS FOR PRAYER We are called to help the refugees
Today’s media seems to be consumed with images of countries rattled by explosives, people dying of hunger, families fleeing from their homes holding onto mere ounces of hope that they will live to see tomorrow. As Americans, many of us have started to become desensitized to these tragedies, as we are not experiencing them first hand.

Dear Prayer Warriors, Please continue to keep RO in prayer. The surgery today went well and should be the last he’ll need with regard to his cancer and everything associated with it. Praise God! Prayer request is for a ‘heart event’ that RO has had during his last two surgeries.

Also he will have to add a cardiologist to his doctor list. Thank you for your prayers. Lauren
