Democrats Call for Resignation of Jeff Sessions
Attorney General Jeff Sessions is in hot water . . . after meeting with the Russian Ambassador last year, and apparently, he failed to make note of it during his Senate confirmation hearings. He has now recused himself from any investigation from any investigation into the Russian intervention in the American election.

The Gospel Goes Forth in Russia
Meanwhile, a missionary from the Slavic Reformation Society, Blake Purcell, tells The World View there are big gains for the Gospel going on in Russia and the 10-40 Window.
“What gives me joy in working with all the peoples in the Russian world, is to see folks, for instance, down in Uzbekistan, a Muslim dominated country . . . we’ve seen whole families come to Christ!”
Purcell said that one Christian family was told that they had to leave the neighborhood or deny Christ.
“So the father said, ‘Well we would rather live on the street with Jesus than live in our home without Jesus.’ That was his answer. One of the things that is just amazing to see is the power of Christ and the power of God against such great odds in these completely unreached people groups.”

Trump Mentions Crimes Against Minorities in Address to Congress
President Donald Trump mentioned crimes against religious minorities in an address to Congress on Tuesday with a gentle tone.

“Recent threats targeting Jewish Community Centers and vandalism of Jewish cemeteries, as well as last week’s shooting in Kansas City, remind us that while we may be a nation divided on policies, we are a country that stands united in condemning hate and evil in all its forms.”
