This Is What A Pastor From Donetsk Told Me Today
(click on the headline above this for the full article.  Intro. is below). 
08/20/2014 Posted by Caleb Suko, missionary to Ukraine

Today I sat down with a pastor friend (name withheld for safety reasons) from Donetsk. He and his family fled the city over a month ago with hopes that they would soon be able to return. However, the situation has only deteriorated in the past few weeks and along with it their hope for a return to normal life in their home city.

Fmr. Ebola patient delivers testimony before Senate committee

Franklin Graham's Facebook post (09/05/14)
Tuesday, a crew from NBC News came to interview me about Dr. Kent Brantly’s miraculous story of surviving Ebola. Matt Lauer interviewed Kent as well, and this will air in an hour-long special TONIGHT at 10:00 p.m. EDT. The world will be watching as he gives the glory to God for healing him!

This Is What It Feels Like to Survive Ebola
Dr. Kent Brantly
Are you sitting down?  Because TIME magazine posted a story by Dr. Kent Brantly on his ordeal with Ebola.

"I never shed a tear when I called my wife and said, “Amber, my test is positive. I have Ebola.” Though the rest of my family wept, I felt strangely at peace. God blessed me with that peace that surpasses understanding. Since we had started treating patients with Ebola in Monrovia, we had only had one surv…

If It Bleeds, it Leads, Then Why All of the Attention on Gaza and So Little, if Any, on the Slaughter of Christians throughout the Islamic World?

I just contacted my two senators (www.senate.gov) and my representative (http://www.house.gov/). I am looking to add the White House (www.whybother.gov -- just kidding, www.whitehouse.gov). Will you join me? Here is what I sent to give you an idea of what to say (put it in your own words and be respectful, please):

Dear Congressman/Senator:
Israel's actions get round the clock coverage as they react to rocket fire, etc. in self defense. Meanwhile, across the Islamic world Christians are forcibly displaced; their churches turned into mosques, looted or burned; their women raped, whole ancient communities emptied and men crucified, killed by the sword, shot or forced to renounce their faith and become Muslim and hardly a word from Western media, Hollywood types or politicians.

Have you spoken out? Why not change the conversation from Israel in Gaza to Islamic extremism's threat vs. ancient Christian populations in the Middle East? Are Palestinian lives more valuable than Christi…
