Don’t Give Up: A Short Letter

“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.”
(Galatians 6:9)

April 14th, 2014, almost 300 young girls were kidnapped by barbaric men. Their lives were completely interrupted. Their hopes and dreams, in many ways, were dashed.

At the creation of this blog, it was my desperate prayer that even one girl would be freed. Amazingly, 8 years later, at least over 100 of the girls have been released (!!!!).

I look at Galatians 6:9, and see the harvest of so many girls now living in freedom. But it also reminds me that there is much to be done, still.

Do not become weary in doing good. The LORD is faithful to reap a harvest if we keep on going in prayer, support, and advocacy for these girls.

With Love, in Christ,

Happy Father’s Day!

Two years later, this still rings true.
Many fathers are waiting for their daughters to be freed, while some families mourn the passing of their fathers due to terrorism. Please keep those families, and waiting fathers, in your prayers. Thank you.

“Fifty”: A Poem for Nigeria

Between 50-70 people were killed in a church service this past Sunday while celebrating Pentecost. This poem is for them.


Fifty.
Fifty family members
slipped through the cultural cracks
passed the divide, they can’t come back
And seemingly no one bats an eyelash.

Fifty men– with their children and wives
blood and bruises, they have lost their lives
and seemingly no US headlines will tell

Gone to hell? No,
singing Your praises, Father, under the church roof
They’re devoted to you Lord, their lives are the proof;
Lost because they love you.

Please,
Let us take note
and speak aloud,
of what they spoke:
fellowship, devotion,
loyalty, emotion
that cannot be surpassed.
They lie in tatters–
do they matter?
It’s something I
have to ask.

Revenge against those who do such blatantly evil things ultimately belongs to God– to Jesus. Learn more about Jesus here.

Please pray with me for the loved ones of the young students and teacher killed today in Uvalde, Texas.

Words cannot describe, so I will not even try to.

Please… just pray.

2014: A Reflection

I am currently doing a big project at work where I need to sort hundreds of papers, to throw away the irrelevant papers and keep the relevant ones.

As I have been sorting, I have gotten down to the year of 2014. And that has caused me to think about where I was on the dates on the papers.
