The Seating Chart Has Changed!

“There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male or female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” Galatians 3:28  Historian Thomas Cahill says that this scripture was the first statement of egalitarianism in human literature.

Over two thousand years ago a man named Jesus changed the seating charts forever! It doesn’t matter where you were born, if you have royal blood, work on a plantation, or own many towers.

And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. Ephesians 2:6-7

John Ortberg  in his book Who Is This Man? writes,

“In the ancient world, slavery was universal. Unlike later slavery in America (England*), it had virtually nothing to do with one’s race. It could happen to anyone — and often did. Although conditions varied somewhat, slaves generally had little dignity or worth. A slave was non habens personam before Roman law, literally “not having a person” or even “not having a face.” Roman masters literally held the power of life and death over slaves. The slaves had no court of appeal. The slaves’ pain was so lightly regarded that when they were called to testiy, torture could be applied as a matter of course. Beathings and kickings were usually not given to free children precisely because such forms of punishment were reserved for slaves.

In the early church, a slave might wander in and have one of the masters — one of the rich and powerful — get down on his knees, take a basin and a towel, and wash the feet of one regarded as a non-person by the law. The Didascalia Apostolorum, an early church order, instructed bishops not to interrupt a service to greet a wealthy person of high rank who entered late. But if a poor man or woman entered the assembly, the bishop was to do whatever was needed to welcome them in, even if it meant the bishop were to end up seating on the floor. The seating chart was changing.”

Then and now – not much has changed when it comes to atrocities:

“The Great Slave Auction”. Amongst the slaves and their descendants it also went by another, more evocative name, “The Weeping Time” — an allusion to the incessant rains that poured from start to finish, seen as heaven weeping, and also, no doubt, to the tears of the families ripped apart. Although the organisers said they’d not break up families, it soon proved a hollow promise. Read More Below

Red Alert – Happening Right Now

On my recent return from China, I met a man from Bangladesh that I wrote about in one of my newsletters. He has family, I’m not certain what city. The article below is what is happening in Bangladesh.

Nicaragua Needs Our Prayers Too!

“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33

There is no reason to fear if we hold fast to the ONE whom has rescued our souls. We can rejoice knowing that Jesus has overcome the world and all of the evil doers and powers who oppose Him. Because of Jesus, God has changed the seating charts in the heavenlies.

Please continue to pray for the people of Rohingya, Nicaragua, China, the U.S. and especially those whom are called to the harvest fields in these places. We must hold fast to pray against Satan and his reign of terror and evil in this hour.

Partner with Me on my Trip to Africa!

Challenge Farm

Dear Friends and Family,

July is finally here and  I’m excited to be heading to Challenge Farm in Kitale, Kenya Africa!

Challenge Farm is part of Globe Hope, the humanitarian arm of Globe International, Inc. where I work.

When I got saved at the age of 12, I felt God calling me to Africa. I could see myself in a vision giving a cup of water to little children. Challenge Farm was founded in 1992 and is home to 188 street children. Many lives have been changed over the years at Challenge Farm and I am so excited to be able to go there! For more information please visit their website at Challenge Farm.org.

Below is a story that happened just last year. Above is a picture of some of these precious children. “On April 9, 2014 in Kitale, Kenya 87 street kids were awakened from their sleep and placed in jail. Challenge Farm by faith took in 30 new children.”As the children were brought to Challenge Farm one of the boys asked, “Is there food at Challenge Farm?” – “Yes, 3 meals a day” – “and football every day!” – “and showers! ” Jesse and Elissa Pontius

The cost of the 21-day trip is about $3,000. This price includes airfare, meals, lodging, and ground transportation and some supplies for the Challenge Farm. Please pray for our team & me as we prepare to go on this mission trip. Apart from financial support, there are several ways you could help:

At the present time I have approximately ¼ of my funds raised. I would like to ask that you would consider supporting me financially. (I recommend a gift of $50, $100 or $150, but you can always give more!), but more important please pray for me and our team. A few facts about where I am going:

Challenge Farm Boys

  • In Sub-Saharan Africa (the part of the continent south of the Sahara Desert), more than 300 million people – nearly half the population – live on less than $1 a day.
  • Every day 6,600 people die from AIDS.
  • More than 12 million African children have already lost one or both parents to AIDS, with the number of AIDS orphans expected to increase to more than 18 million by 2010.
  • In Kenya, the median age is only 18, and about half the population is 15 or younger

The 30 children that were taken in from being “netted” on the street were all 12 and younger. The minimum cost to feed, clothe, provide medical, dental, shelter and education is approximately $200+ per month. Imagine your monthly household expenses increasing $6,000 per month in one day!
