Normally we do our weekend wrap up on Friday's, however, tomorrow I will be attending the Second Annual God Bloggers Conference right here in Southern California at Biola University, so we've moved our event to today. Thank you again to all of you who are participating!
One of the things that always encourages me is when I see believers doing special things for the persecuted church. This week Dean sent me this entry that he wrote for his blog Bibles at the China Border called Autumn Rain 2007 Prayer Calendar which is a calendar he made to raise money for the persecuted church in China. Very cool!
Our next entry is from Michael at Supply the Word called A Call To Love Your Neighbor . Michael writes, Christians need to reach out to everyone, including Muslims, to share the word and the love that Jesus Christ has shown to us. This is the only way. War cannot do it, sanctions cannot do it, no one can bring God's children together but Jesus Christ."
Next we have another wonderful entry from Mick at the Romans 15:4 Project called Pray for the Faithful that Refuse Islam . He describes his entry this way, "Many faithful have suffered the ultimate sacrifice because they have refused to convert to Islam". Powerful!
Jan writes our next entry about two people she recently met. Jan writes,"I recently met two young men at a VOM table: One was willing to go to the most remote regions of a hostile country to spread the gospel, after he became one of the fortunate ones to have made it to America, while the other despairs, because he had never read a Bible and did not know of the hope that we have in Christ." Read her post called An Amazing Contrast.
Next we have a reminder from John who blogs at Bible Truth Online concerning the Persecution in Azerbaijan . Imagine not being able to name your baby a Christian name. This is happening in Azerbaijan.
And our second to last entry is from Barb at Tidbits & Treasures who writes, "A mother got to share the message of salvation with her son, after he witnessed the death of his friend because he was a Christian." Read Barb's entry - Have You Shared Jesus With Someone Today?
Our final entry comes from Hal over at The Great Separation. Hal's post is called Egyptian Muslim Religious Leader Jailed for being Born Again. Hal writes, "A Muslim religious leader who confessed belief in Christ as Lord and Savior was arrested in Egypt. The charge, insulting Islam for being born again."
Please remember all of these brothers and sisters in your prayers.
