Today, I watched a portion of US President Donald Trump speak with people from all over the world who are being persecuted for their faith. My heart swelled and felt heavy at the same time, as I saw people of every nationality and ethnic group voice their concerns about religious persecution to President Trump (you can watch the video here).
I have become aware of a little Israeli girl named Miri who has Leukemia. Because of her family’s poverty and the severity of her illness, she cannot live in the small and ill-ventilated her family lives in. She is currently living in the hospital.
Would you consider giving to her cause, to help her family build a new home where she can live with them? If anything, please just pray for her and for her family.
You can learn more about her here.

“If I die doing this work, I know my parents would be proud of me because I died for my state,” said Kaje, a woman who is currently working for the Nigerian military against Boko Haram. According to this article by Aljazeera, Kaje is a woman who lost two of her closest relatives to Boko Haram.
But, instead of allowing the darkness to overwhelm her, Kaje decided to be apart of the Civilian-Joint-Task-Force, a league of people committed to fighting Boko Haram. She and other women like her are needed, too– Kaje searches women’s hijabs, clothes and purses before they walk into heavily populated areas such as markets, something that men are usually not allowed to do.
There are many women like Kaje today: women who have seen their loved ones die, and have stepped up to protect those in Northern Nigeria, Niger, Chad, and Cameroon who are still alive. These women are absolutely amazing, and are a symbol of hope and strength as they fight against Boko Haram.
The resiliency of these women is amazing. I only hope that, if I were ever to be put in such a situation, that I would be able to rise to the occasion as Kaje and so many other women have. Let’s pray for these resilient women, that Jesus would protect, guide, and favor them as they work against the forces of darkness in this world.

URGENT PRAYER REQUEST:
A family member of mine, whom we will call H, has been having very severe stomach issues for the past 3 weeks. She cannot even keep broth down without it burning her throat and stomach. The only sustenance she can have at this point is the nutrition given through IVs at the hospital, which she has been in and out of for the past several weeks.
Doctors still have little to no idea what is causing this pain, and it’s so frustrating and concerning. Please pray that today, as H is in the ER once again, that her doctors would be able to pinpoint what is causing this and that she would be provided relief. Thank you!
Do you know Jesus?

Human trafficking is much more prevalent than we have ever seen before. We would like to think that it only happens in third world countries, far away from our own neighborhoods… but unfortunately, that is not the reality of the situation. Continue reading
Dear Friends and Followers,
