Algeria’s hostility to Christianity
Officials in Algeria, Africa, which is 99% Sunni Muslim, have made it increasingly difficult for Christian missionaries to evangelize or challenge the Islamic faith in any capacity, reports International Christian Concern.
They’re prepared to issue hefty fines and long-term jail sentences.
Romans 10:14-15 says, “How, then, can they call on the One they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the One of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: ‘How beautiful are the feet of those who bring Good News!’”
According to Open Doors, Algeria, Africa is the 22nd most difficult country to be a Christian.
Canada trashes 25 million COVID-19 shots
The Canadian government has discarded almost 25 million doses of COVID-19 shots as demand for inoculation against the novel coronavirus has plummeted, reports LifeSiteNews.
Studies have indicated that COVID-19 shots are much more likely to cause injuries than to protect from infection from the virus, particularly in young adults.
A recent study from Germany found “strong associations” between COVID inoculation and a drop in fertility.
Democrats retain control of U.S. Senate
Democrats will continue to control the Senate following the 2022 midterm elections, after Nevada Democrat Senator Catherine Masto on Saturday was projected by CBS News to win a tight reelection race against Republican Adam Laxalt.
Her victory gives Democrats 50 seats in the 118th Congress. Vice President Kamala Harris’ tie-breaking vote, should it be needed, gives them the majority, regardless of the outcome of the Georgia runoff election in December between Sen. Raphael Warnock and Republican challenger Herschel Walker.
Republicans need 6 more House seats for majority
Yesterday, Republicans picked up one of several seats that they need to gain a majority in the House of Representatives, which is still not guaranteed five days after the midterm elections were held, reports Fox News.
The win gave Republicans 212 seats in the House, still short of a minimum majority of 218 with 19 races that have not been called yet. But Republicans are not home free and still must win most of the races in which they’re leading in order to take control of the House.
Two states legalized recreational marijuana
Voters in two states approved the legalization of recreational marijuana in Tuesday’s elections, joining the growing list of states where the cannabis market is regulated for adult use, reports CNBC.
Maryland and Missouri join 19 other states and the District of Columbia in legalizing recreational marijuana, while legalization proposals did not pass in Arkansas, North Dakota and South Dakota.
Conservative candidates flip 100 school board seats
Previously, the leftist school board members had championed critical race theory, “woke” ideologies, or sexually explicit material in classrooms and school libraries.
The political action committee is dedicated to “electing school board members nationwide who want to reform our public education system by promoting patriotism and pride in American history.”
10,000 sandwiches made honoring lady who helped WWI soldiers
And finally, a South Carolina community came together this week to make 10,000 sandwiches in one day to give away to local food banks, schools, soup kitchens, and shelters, reports GoodNewsNetwork.
1 John 3:17 asks, “If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need, but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person?”
In 1917, Eugenia Duke and her daughter Martha began selling homemade sandwiches for 10 cents each at Army canteens to make extra money for their family in Greenville during the war.
Her pimento cheese, bacon, and mayonnaise sandwiches were quite popular and she got so many requests from soldiers at nearby Camp Sevier that she started bottling her homemade mayo four years later.
Her Duke’s Mayonnaise became a beloved condiment that is still sold on grocery store shelves today.
The volunteers used around one ton of homemade pimento and cheddar cheese salad to assemble those 10,000 sandwiches inside the historic pavilion downtown which is the same location of the original Duke’s Mayonnaise factory.
