I thought it would be good to pass on some good news and share some encouraging events with you all! Be blessed!

Here is a recent article that has Islamic authorities scratching their heads, wondering what to do with it. It's truly amazing how the LORD Jesus is moving in these lands where the Quran is held in the highest esteem, and yet many souls are being drawn to Him, apparently by visitations by the LORD of Glory, Himself! While it's sad what happened to this man's wife, consider how the LORD worked in this situation:


A Muslim man in Egypt killed his wife because she was reading theBible and then buried her with their infant baby and an 8-year old daughter. The girls were buried alive! He then reported to the police that an uncle killed the kids.

15 days later, another family member died. . . When they went to bury him, they found the 2 little girls under the sand - ALIVE! The country is outraged over the incident, and the man will be executed.

The older girl was asked how she had survived and she says:-

"A man wearing shiny white clothes, with bleeding wounds in his hands, came every day to feed us. He woke up my Mom so she could nurse my sister."

She was interviewed on Egyptian national TV, by a veiled Muslim woman news anchor. She said on public TV, "This was none other than Jesus, because nobody else does things like this!"

Muslims believe Isa (Jesus) would do this, but the wounds mean He really was crucified, and it's clear also that He is alive! But, it's also clear that the child could not make up a story like this, and there is no way these children could have survived without a true miracle.

Muslim leaders are going to have a hard time to figure out what to do with this, and the popularity of The Passion movie doesn't help! With Egypt at the center of the media and education in the Middle East , you can be sure this story will spread.

Christ is still turning the world upside down! Please let this story be shared. The Lord says,

Jer 17:7
Blessed [is] the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is.

Here is an article posted here from K-House E-News ( )


America, the land of the free and the home of the brave, is all about religious freedom.

Yet, in the name of separation of church and state, religious groups have often had to battle for equal access to public facilities or the freedom to teach the Bible. Even then, simple letters can usually clear up situations in which Christians face discrimination.

Santa Rosa County, Florida: The ACLU filed a lawsuit against Florida's Santa Rosa County School District last year and, in response, the school district agreed to a consent order that ended with the banning of religious activities at county schools.

As a result, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes was prevented from renting school facilities at Jay High School and teachers were forbidden to attend baccalaureate services. When contacted about the issue, the Alliance Defense Fund wrote a letter to inform the school district that these prohibitions were unconstitutional.

The school district then reversed its policies and allowed the Christian athlete group to meet on school property and renewed teachers' freedom to attend private baccalaureate services on their own time.

San Diego County, California: A pastor and his wife were cited and their home Bible study in Bonita, CA was shut down, making national news. On April 11, David and Mary Jones were told they had to get a permit in order to hold the home studies, in which between five and 27 people gathered each week.

"She asked me if we sang songs, said Amen, praised the Lord or not. I don't even think I answered because I was so taken aback" said Mary Jones, whose home had been used for the Bible study for five years.

When the event made the news, the county at first explained that the whole thing was about parking. One of the neighbors had apparently complained about inconveniently parked cars. Last week San Diego County finally made an official apology to the couple. The county's chief administrative officer Walter Ekard wrote a letter on Wednesday, June 3 to say that the citation should never have been written and the Jones family was not required to get a permit.

Tulsa, Oklahoma: For two decades, Child Evangelism Fellowship has put on a Bible-based summer vacation program for kids in Tulsa's inner city projects. The fellowship's goal is to help these high-risk kids stay out of drugs and crime through fun activities and messages that also teach them about God.

A non-profit group that administers recreational programs for the Tulsa Housing Authority, Youth At Heart, recently told Child Evangelism Fellowship that they could not run programs that spoke about God or Jesus. Youth at Heart informed the Christian group that religious instruction was not permitted on public housing property. They said the policy had been in place for a long time, but just had not been enforced.

Mathew Staver of the Liberty Counsel commented, "There is a mistaken notion if you allow equal access to a religious group, you're violating the Constitution." So far the housing authority has declined to comment, but a 2001 US Supreme Court ruling makes the case clear; religious groups have the same rights to access public facilities or property as any other group.

Larry Koehn, head of Child Evangelism Fellowship in Tulsa, is not very worried. "Last fall, one of our schools said we couldn't hold a club after school for the same reasons," he said. "I contacted the Liberty Counsel and they wrote a letter to the school board explaining equal access, and they let us in."

Religious discrimination continues to take place in America, but Americans have a number of legal groups ready to assist them when problems and confusions sprout up. Those who experience daily religious freedom around the world should praise God for the liberty they enjoy. It is a precious gift that should never be taken lightly.
