Happy Fourth of July! Let’s take some time to be thankful for the freedoms we do have.

May you enjoy the day, and remember the freedoms we all enjoy!

Free Pastor John Cao!

Pastor John Cao has been in a Chinese prison for three years as of March 5th. If this were not enough, he has not even been able to have phone calls with his family members and loved ones because of Coronavirus.

Update on Nigerian Pastor Lawan Andimi

As heartbroken as I am, I have to update you guys about Pastor Lawan Andimi. As of January 21st, it has been reported by Christianity Today that Pastor Lawan Andimi was executed by those who took him captive. He said he was not afraid of death, because “Jesus is still alive.”

As I struggle with the idea that God had other plans than freeing him here on earth, I am crying bittersweet tears, knowing that He is now rid of captivity and pain, in God’s very Presence.

Please pray with me for his family and friends, as well as the congregation he shepherded. Thank you.


Do you know Jesus?

Our brother Lawan was so committed to Jesus that he faced death knowing he would be okay. Knowing Jesus is not just religion; it is a personal relationship with Him. Learn more about the God Pastor Andimi loved and served, here.

A Song of Comfort

I was driving home today, when “Weep With Me” by Rend Collective came on. It goes,

“Weep with me
Lord will You weep with me?
I don’t need answers, all I need
Is to know that You care for me
Hear my plea
Are You even listening?
Lord I will wrestle with Your heart
But I won’t let You go

You know I believe
Help my unbelief

Yet I will praise You
Yet I will sing of Your name
Here in the shadows
Here I will offer my praise
What’s true in the light
Is still true in the dark
You’re good and You’re kind
And You care for this heart
Lord I believe
You weep with me.”

I thought it would be an important song to post, especially after speaking of the Christians in Cameroon and their lament.

Friends, wherever you’re at, know that Jesus is near… and that He weeps with you in all of your pain and suffering. Because He comforts us, we can comfort, pray for, and weep with our hurting brothers and sisters (2 Corinthians 1:4; Romans 12:15-18).

Today, as you pray, may you know that Jesus is not far from you and loves you very, very much—just like His Love for those in Cameroon. May that Love spur us on to pray for them.

In Christ,

Annalee

“Making Them Glad”: Encouraging Others

On Wednesday, December 4th, a civil society organization commended the Nigerian army for “their level of professionalism.” In a world where people—especially those in the Northern half of Nigeria—are fighting the Nigerian military, these words of commendation can mean a lot to an army’s morale and show them that they are seen.

Prayer for Alex Trebek

In case you haven’t heard, Alex Trebek, the 79-year-old host of “Jeopardy!” has pancreatic cancer—and is back in chemotherapy after many months of being in remission. When asked about his health, he says he is concerned for those who love him once he passes, but says, “I’ve had one hell of a life.”

Whether you’re aware of who he is or not, my heart goes out to this man. I pray that he would come to know Jesus if he has not, yet. Will you please pray with me for him?


Jesus deeply and passionately cares for every single person on this earth. Learn more about Jesus, and His great Love for you, here.
