Translating the Bible into Hausa!!!

Hi, friends. I just wanted to share a totally important, amazing opportunity.

For many years, people who speak the Hausa language (those usually found in West Africa) have had to learn english to read the Bible. But now, some people are embarking on translating the Bible into the Hausa language!!!

Watch the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G1JKA-CD4R8&feature=youtu.be

These people need to know that God Loves them– and speaks their language, as the video says. Would you pray with me over this amazing project being done, for it’s success and for many who speak the Hausa language to know Jesus?

“Dear Jesus,
We thank You for this amazing opportunity. We pray in Your Name that You would bless and Have Your Hand upon this project, and that many, many people who speak the Hausa language would come to know Your Salvation and Love.
In Jesus’ Name I pray,
Amen.”


God so Loved this (entire) world that He gave His Only Begotten Son. Learn more about His Son, Jesus, here.

Exciting News: New TV Show, Bob Loves Abishola

Last night, I came across a show called “Bob ❤ Abishola.” In the show, a man named Bob goes to a hospital, and while there, has a nurse who is a Nigerian immigrant named Abishola take care of him. He falls for Abishola—and that’s all I’ve watched so far 😊

This is way out of the ordinary for American TV, and I am excited to see how they portray Abishola and her Nigerian immigrant family. I wonder why they chose Nigeria; it will be interesting to find out. I pray that it actually sheds light on Nigeria and what is going on there, and that as the show portrays Nigerians, they would not just be seen as “another country from corrupt Africa.” Those in Nigeria are more than statistics—they are people, and I hope that this show allows watchers to see that. 

THOSE IN NIGERIA ARE MORE THAN STATISTICS—THEY ARE PEOPLE.

Please pray with me, that this show is 1) culturally correct, 2) puts Nigerians in a good light, and 3) helps shed light on what is actually going on in Nigeria. Thank you, guys!

You can find “Bob ❤ Abishola” on CBS at 8:30pm.

(I was not sponsored or asked in any way to highlight this show. I’m just excited about it!!!)

Denis C. Miranda, one of the soldiers remembered on the website.

I just wanted to shed light on this amazing resource, https://thefallen.militarytimes.com. It’s purpose is to remember each and every solider who has passed away in the line of duty. Just as this blog aims to honor, remember, and pray for those in Northern Nigeria (especially the Chibok girls), so their website aims to do the same for those in the military.

I encourage you to check them out and follow them here! This is in no way a paid endorsment or anything else of that nature; I just stumbled across the site on Facebook and thought it would be remiss to not mention it.

With Love in Christ,

Annalee

A Thought on Jesus’ Vulnerability

“Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them.”
(John 14:21, NIV)

Looking at this scripture, it becomes clear to me: Jesus chooses to be vulnerable, but only with those who love (obey) Him. He knows that His Love is what every heart needs, yet we can only know His Love by choosing to love Him back by obeying.

I’m not saying we can only approach God by doing works; it is by Grace we are saved! Yet God (Christ and the Father as Jesus mentions here, as well as the Holy Spirit) shows Himself to those who will truly seek Him.

Question: where are you not letting Jesus in? (I’m typing this as I think about it, so feel free to comment if you think my thoughts here are out of line.) May we know Jesus more and more and show our love for Him more and more through obedience… and only obey out of the true vulnerability and Love Jesus gives. ❤


As said before, we do not become saved by anything we do; we become saved based on what Jesus did. Learn more about Jesus, and His work done on the cross for you, here.

The Campaign for Israeli Government

Please pray with me over who will be the next prime minister (and government in general) over Israel! The election has been tied up. As 1 Timothy 2 says,

“I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior…” -1 Timothy 2:1-3

Israel is incredibly important to God, and is an essential part of His Plan for the end times. Let’s pray Jesus’ will would be done in this election and that all Israelis would know Christ as Lord and Savior!
