School Bus Accident Kills State Trooper's Daughter and Injures Her Two Sisters

I am praying for this family, a NJ state trooper is the father, who lost one triplet daughter and the other two are hospitalized, one in critical condition. I cannot imagine the pain and having to plan for one daughter's funeral while visiting the others in the hospital. They will need much support.

May God heal both of these girls and get to the bottom of what caused the accident. The children's friends and classmates need prayer as well. Will you join me in praying?

A Review of The Teheran Initiative

The Teheran Initiative is another great book from Joel Rosenberg.

I am glad that it is finally getting the notice it deserves. However, I fear the reason may be that it is now at such an alarming rate that it is undeniable.

The author of the piece is Ayaan Hirsi Ali. Her personal story is amazing and difficult to summarize. Suffice it to say that she was raised in a radical school, subscribed to a very conservative form of Islam including being supportive of the Muslim Brotherhood and the fatwa on Salman Rushdie. Her faith in Allah and Islam suffered a death blow due to the 9-11 attacks and the justifications given for them by bin Laden from the Koran which she discovered were accurately quoted by him. I would love to say that she converted to Christianity but she has instead become an atheist.

Pray for Sudan, North and South, for religious freedom, for peace and for many to come to Christ despite threats.
