I heard the story once about a poor woodcutter. He worked so hard and tirelessly day in and day out, yet he struggled to keep food on the table for his family. He grew tired of working so hard and being poor. He said to himself, “I would praise God if I could just have a little gold like the merchants do.” He dreamed about the chicken and meat he could eat if he had just a little gold. Then… Read more

Last week, I had the privilege to visit the girls’ home and boys’ home that Gospel for Asia supports in Delhi, India. The children who live here, most of whom are orphans, were brought in after being rescued from living on the street. They are cared for physically as well as emotionally and spiritually. Whenever possible, the social workers try to find their parents and reunite them. For those who are orphans, the children’s home becomes their permanent home and… Read more

Imagine a scenario with me. Today, as you are going about your early morning routine, you feel the need to relieve yourself. You wait until the sun comes up and then you go and knock on your neighbor’s door. Once they answer, the two of you venture quietly and carefully to a safe place outside where you can answer nature’s call. This is the most dangerous part of your day. This situation sounds strange, I know. But imagine if there… Read more

By Danny Yohannan Some years ago while listening to the radio, I came across an interesting discussion between two pastors. Part of their discussion was talking about how society pressures kids to figure out what they want to do with their lives based on their passions and interests. What caught my attention were the next few sentences. They said something to the extent of, “Parents, why don’t you help your child learn to ask the question, ‘What does God want… Read more

Today is November 16, the International Day for Tolerance. This day is set aside to acknowledge that the diversity of the world’s many castes, creeds, religions, people groups and cultures is not a reason for hate, but rather these differences are a means to stretch us and grow us to value ways of life different than what we know. We don’t naturally see the world through the eyes of our fellow man, but through our own. Our own experience, traditions… Read more

Usually when we hear the word veteran, we think of it in a military context. We understand a veteran to be someone who has served in one of the branches of this country’s armed forces. This year, Veterans Day, a national holiday, falls on November 11. The purpose is to honor all those who have served in such a capacity at any time. Ceremonies will begin with a special service held in Arlington National Cemetery in Washington, D.C., followed later in… Read more

When we look at what happened in Sutherland Springs, Texas, this week, we are still trying to wrap our minds around it. It’s so difficult to comprehend. It is being called the worst mass shooting in Texas. The number of children, even babies, who were killed is just agonizing. We cannot really bring ourselves to the place of fully entering into this tragedy. Even just reading the news reports and interviews has changed us and left a mark on our… Read more

Today is the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church (IDOP). It’s an opportunity for us as believers to remember the millions of Christians around the world who are persecuted for Christ. This January, Jeremy Weber of Christianity Today wrote, “For the third year in a row, the modern persecution of Christians worldwide has hit another record high.” Based on what God’s Word says regarding the times leading up to Christ’s return, we know persecution will only increase. When… Read more
