Wife/Mother Dying of Cancer Does the Selfless Thing, ISIS Crucifies Priest, Easter Attack Kills Nearly 72 in Pakistan (Mostly Women and Children), Turkey Becoming Radicalized?

Less is More
Rory writes, "Who does that? Who has that kind of strength and character? Not me, that’s for sure. I would’ve taken the low, easy road… the one that served me more. I would’ve tried to make the ties with our baby stronger and her love for me deeper so that she wouldn’t forget me… and in the end, probably left our baby wrecked with grief over the loss of the one person she loved and needed most. But not Joey. She let Indy fall more in love with me…and less in love with her. She carried the pain on her own shoulders, to try to keep it off of mine. And even more so, off of Indy’s."

ISIS Crucifies Catholic Priest on Good Friday

An unspeakable horror yet, if he had faith in Christ, these were light and momentary afflictions compared to the surpassing glory that awaited him (2 Corinthians 4:17-18).
Pakistani Christian families are burying their deceased children and other family members following the deadly suicide bomb attack on Easter Sunday at a park in Lahore, which…

Wycliffe statement

Militants killed four national translators and injured several others in a raid on a translation office in the Middle East. They shot and destroyed all the equipment in the office including the Print On Demand (POD) equipment. The invaders burned all the books and other translation materials in the office. Two workers died of gunshot wounds. Two other workers laid on top of the lead translator—saved his life—and died deflecting bludgeoning blows from the radicals’ spent weapons.

We praise the Lord that He protected the computer hard drives containing the translation work for eight language projects.

The remaining translation team has…

A Review of This Is Our Time: A Christian Film on Fulfilling Your Purpose While Dealing with Struggles and Setbacks and Tragedy Along the Way

This Is Our Time DVD by Pure Flix

When you cannot trace God’s hand, you can always trust God’s heart -- unknown quote used by Bishop Kenneth Ulmer (who plays the pastor in the film)

This is Our Time is about five recent college graduates prepared to take their world by storm. Though differing in talent and direction, each of them intends to take the journey with strong faith and determination to make a difference in their chosen fields. 

However, life delivers curve balls along the way. They experience setbacks, struggles, ethical dilemmas and even a great tragedy that test their faith to see what sort it is. Watch this powerful film. Better yet, watch it with a teen or young adult.

This movie illustrates that God cannot always be understood. His ways are mysterious and past finding out. We most certainly would not do things as He does. However, God can be trusted for He is good.

An added bonus is that the movie is based on a true mission to lepers in India called Embrace a Village. Chec…

Joey is Almost Home
Joey has done all she set out to do… even right to the very end, and by sheer will-power (and God’s grace), she was still here to to see our baby’s 2nd birthday. Over the last number of weeks her pain had gotten worse and her health had continued to decline rapidly. And not long after Indy’s birthday my wife decided that ‘enough is enough’. She was ready to stop fighting and she told me so. She said the flowers would soon be blooming back in Tennessee. It’s time to go home.

Joey gathered her family together around her and she said goodbye to each of them
