MIDEAST UPDATE 7/31/2017

Week after week in these updates, I share a little bit of the news coming out of the Mideast. One of the reasons I do so is because many people do not pay much attention to the news. I was talking to a banker friend a couple of days ago and asked her if she was aware of the latest […]

MIDEAST UPDATE 7/20/ 2017

This week’s update is in two parts, the second part being a story that comes directly from people in Mosul who are experiencing the reality of the civil war battleground that is both Iraq and Syria today. This story will be on line in a couple days. Many people hear little or no news about what is actually happening in […]

MIDEAST UPDATE, 1/29/2016

Every time I check my regular news sources, it becomes clearer by the day that our troubled world is hurtling toward cataclysmic events, the likes of which will leave all other troubled eras in our world’s history pale in comparison. For those in the West, so far, at least for the most part, we just read or hear about these […]

MIDEAST UPDATE, 1/16/2016

The beginning of the Church Age was tumultuous. Once the Day of Pentecost came and the apostles began to preach and teach with power, the forces of the enemy began to persecute. The enemy here is not the Jewish Scribes, Pharisees, Sadducees, or even the Roman government at the time, but rather the forces of hell that were unleashed to […]

MIDEAST UPDATE, 1/5/2016

We live in a world where people are looking for heroes and even the supernatural. Many of the movies that are produced today play into the desires that people have. As humans, we find ourselves wishing we had access to the supernatural…usually for the wrong reasons. We wish we were capable of seeing things that the natural human eye cannot […]

MIDEAST UPDATE, 12/24/2015

I am now coming to realize more and more as time passes, that not only is the intensity of world events increasing, but so is the intensity increasing with the work in God’s harvest of souls. For those of us who have direct contact with overseas missions, it is probably easier to recognize; it certainly is for me through my […]

MIDEAST UPDATE, 12/11/2015

How many of us in this generation have said that we would love to have lived in the days of the early Church. We read the stories that have been recorded for us in the Book of Acts and some of the early Church records and wish we could have seen these very things. Many of us have also heard […]

MIDEAST UPDATE, 11/29/2015

It has now been nearly two weeks since I have written an official Mideast update. For those of us in the West, the days go by quickly, especially during the holidays. Here in America, we have just celebrated Thanksgiving. This is a time for getting together with friends, but especially family. Being truly thankful for the blessings that have been […]

MIDEAST UPDATE, 11/10/2015

As the violence in the Middle East continues to escalate, the suffering of the innocents also increases. Most of the people live in wretched conditions with little if any food, and insufficient clothing for the coming cold winter months. The description of their circumstances is not given to lay guilt on those of us who are not experiencing the same, […]

MIDEAST UPDATE, 10/28/2015

As I look over the last few updates, I can see how the reports I have been receiving of the missionary work from the front lines in the Middle East, very much reflect the news from that part of the world. Only someone totally oblivious to the news of the world would not be aware of the dramatic increase in […]
