Airdropping food to a tiny drop zone in South Sudan; A message to girls who want to be married; Honesty in marriage
Samaritan's Purse is providing food and other aid to thousands of refugees escaping from the ongoing fighting in the Nuba Mountains region of Sudan....
More than 5,000 people have sought refuge in upper Unity State in South Sudan, and there are reports that at least 20,000 more are making their way to the area. Some have walked for 13 days. They have no other source of food or clean water, and are living amid swampy, black mud.
Samaritan’s Purse has a disaster assistance team in Unity State, working in a remote area that is very difficult to reach because of rain that has washed out roads and left up to four feet of standing water in some places.
“The people have reached the end of their rope,” said David Phillips, the emergency response manager. “They have exhausted all of their food supplies that they had carried with them fleeing the fighting in the Nuba Mountains. They have resorted to collecting grass and leaves to boil, and then are drinking the green water just to get some nutrients.”
There was no way to transport the large amounts of food and other items needed by land, so we mobilized our Kenya-based DC-3 to airdrop emergency supplies to the area.
Read on."Let’s go ahead and put the goal in the stratosphere:
Think about how you talk to God.
I’m talking about your prayer time.
Think about how He talks to you.
I’m talking about through His Word.
How do y’all talk to each other? How do y’all interact and engage each other?
I suspect you are completely open, honest, transparent, and there are no holds barred in your relationship with God.
At least this is how things ought to be and this is the goal that you should strive for in your relationship with your spouse."
