How one man came to Christ in the Middle East

Hayel lives in the Middle East among the Druze, a religious sect with 1.5 million adherents, found primarily in Lebanon, Syria, Israel, and Jordan. The Druze make up 5.5% of the population of Lebanon, 3% of Syria and 1.6% of Israel.

In an interview with Voice of the Martyrs Radio, Hayel was on a search for the truth.

HAYEL: “I read a lot of religious books, obviously. But I read the Quran. I read a bit of the Druze religion as well. I read the Torah. And then I say, ‘I must read the Bible as well.’ And when I read it, I, straight away, I find myself there. This is the real God. This is the Lord. I couldn’t leave the Bible until I, every day, I read it in my life. I practice it as well as much as I can.”

Inspired by the example of the Christians he knew, Hayel started reading the Bible. He learned the truth first-hand. In its pages, he knew he’d found the One True God.

HAYEL: “Everybody know that Christian people is a very good people. They’re very nice people. They’re very helpful people. They have sympathy. They do all good things. It didn’t come from nothing. Obviously, this must come from their religion.

“So, I was curious to know what they reading there. Why this people is like that? When I start reading and then I knew what happened. Myself, I changed a lot as well because the Bible really can change anybody. Everybody listen now. If he read the Bible, he can change, even if you have a lot of problem or whatever. God will be with him.”

Having found the truth in Jesus Christ, Hayel couldn’t keep himself from sharing the good news with his fellow Druze—even knowing he would be persecuted for doing so.

Despite the fact that Hayel was forbidden to share his Christian faith, he refused to stop. Ultimately, he was kicked out from his home and ostracized, but he regards that sacrifice as nothing compared to knowing Jesus.

1 Peter 4:14 says, “If you are insulted because of the name of Christ, you are blessed, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests on you.”

NY Attorney General sues Trump over fraud allegation

On Wednesday, former President Donald Trump and three of his adult children were accused of lying to tax collectors, lenders, and insurers in a “staggering” fraud scheme that routinely misstated the value of his properties to enrich themselves, reports The Guardian.

New York Democrat Attorney General Letitia James alleged on September 21st that Trump provided fraudulent statements of his net worth and false asset valuations to obtain and satisfy loans, get insurance benefits, and pay lower taxes.

JAMES: “Following a comprehensive, three-year investigation by my office, including interviews with more than 65 witnesses and a review of millions of documents that were submitted by Mr. Trump and others, I am announcing that today, we are filing a lawsuit against Donald Trump for violating the law as part of his efforts to generate profits for himself, his family, and his company.

“The complaint demonstrates that Donald Trump falsely inflated his net worth by billions of dollars to unjustly enrich himself and to cheat the system, thereby cheating all of us.”

Last night, during an hour-long appearance on Sean Hannity’s Fox show, Trump said that New York Attorney General Leticia James had campaigned on “getting Trump” and that it was another “witch hunt.”

TRUMP: “Well, she campaigned on it four years ago. It was a vicious campaign. She just talked about Trump and ‘We’re going to indict him. We’re gonna get him.’ She knew nothing about me. I never heard of her. She said, ‘We’re gonna get him.’ Her whole campaign was based on that. I actually thought that they would never bring a case. And she brought it. The reason I thought that because she didn’t have a case.

“This was just a continuation of a witch hunt that began when I came down the escalator at Trump Tower, and it started.”

Fauci admitted that COVID lockdowns & protocols were “draconian”

On Wednesday, Dr. Anthony Fauci admitted at The Atlantic Festival that he knew the “draconian” COVID-19 policies he pushed for would lead to “collateral negative consequences” for the “economy” and “schoolchildren,” reports the New York Post.


FAUCI: “You have to do something that’s rather draconian and sometimes when you do draconian things it has collateral negative consequences.”

Republican Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky reacted on NewsMax TV.

PAUL: “Look at the disdain that Dr. Fauci has for our children: collateral damage. Those are our school kids. Those are the children of America are the collateral damage to a man so obsessed with his own self-importance, that he didn’t follow the science.”

When Senator Paul was asked what the Republicans would do if they gain control of Congress during the mid-term election, he said this.

PAUL: “So if we, [the Republicans], win the election, we are going to investigate [Fauci]. But we’re going to get rid of his bad ideas and we’re going to pay attention to the science.

“The science is this:  99% of America has immunity, either from having had the disease or from the vaccine, or from a combination of both.

“That means we are beyond the pandemic Joe Biden finally got something right. It might have been an accident, but Joe Biden is right. The pandemic is over.”

Southwest employee watches customer’s fish for four months

And finally, a Southwest Airline employee volunteered to take care of a passenger’s fish after the passenger was told she could not take it on the plane, reports GoodNewsNetwork.org.

Kira was returning home from her freshman year at college with her beta fish, named Theo, when she was told it was not allowed on her flight.

That’s when Ismael, the Southwest agent, offered to take care of her fish so that she wouldn’t miss her flight.

Then, amazingly, Ismael took care of the fish for four months, until they met up again in Tampa. Now entering her sophomore year, Kira brought a gift card as a way of thanking him.

1 Corinthians 13:4 says, “Love is patient. Love is kind.”
