Nigerian Muslims killed 10 Christians & burned 100 homes

Last Friday, Muslim Fulani herdsmen attacked Ta’agbe village in the Plateau state of Nigeria.

The militants entered the village shouting “Allahu Akbar,” which means “Allah, the moon god, is greater” in Arabic, in an attack that lasted over two hours. They killed 10 Christians, burned 100 homes, and displaced nearly 700 people.

Sibi Gara, a survivor, told International Christian Concern, “I lost my grandchildren for the sake of Christ.”

Mark 8:35 says, “For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the Gospel’s will save it.”

Albania celebrated 30 years of Evangelical influence

Evangelical Focus reports that Albania is celebrating 30 years of Evangelical influence.

When Albania regained freedom from under a communist regime in 1991, there were only 13 to 16 Evangelical believers in the southeastern European country located on the Adriatic and Ionian Sea. Now there are 200 Evangelical churches across Albania.

In 2011, Evangelicals there earned official recognition from the Albanian government.

Ylli Doçi, the President of the Evangelical Alliance of Albania, said, “The Church of our Lord Jesus Christ in Albania and everywhere will continue to worship and proclaim the good news of His salvation in good weather and bad, in freedom and in persecution, in season and out of season, just as our King asked us to do because He is with us until the end of the world.”

Isaiah 9:7 says, “Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end, upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, to order it and establish it with judgment and justice from that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.”

U.S. bans travel from southern Africa over new COVID variant

On Monday, the U.S. banned most travel from eight southern in response to the Omicron variant of the coronavirus.

The restriction applies to South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Lesotho, Eswatini, Mozambique, and Malawi.

The Omicron variant was first identified in South Africa and appears to have very mild symptoms.

Judge blocks Biden’s COVID-shot mandate for health care workers

On Monday, a U.S. District Court judge in Missouri temporarily blocked the Biden administration’s COVID-shot mandate for healthcare workers in 10 states.

Then, on Tuesday, a federal judge in Louisiana expanded on the injunction and blocked the mandate nationwide.

It’s the latest court setback for Biden’s COVID-shot mandates.

The Louisiana ruling states, “If human nature and history teach anything, it is that civil liberties face grave risks when governments proclaim indefinite states of emergency.”

Roe v Wade going down? Pray for Mississippi Attorney General today

Today, at 10:00 am Eastern, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral arguments over Mississippi’s 15-week abortion ban.

Mississippi Attorney General Lynn Fitch  told Fox News she is asking the high court to overturn Roe v. Wade in the case.

FITCH: “For 50 years, Roe v Wade has pitted women against their children, woman against a woman. And now it’s time to really stop and empower women and support life.”

Former Vice President Mike Pence called on Americans to pray for the court as they deliberate the case.  Arguments are scheduled to last through 11:10am ET.

The rising inflation of Brazil, Turkey, America and New Zealand

Pew Research reports third-quarter 2021 inflation is higher in most countries than in the pre-pandemic third quarter of 2019.

Of the 46 countries surveyed, Brazil and Turkey lead the inflationary increase followed by the United States and New Zealand. Japan was the only country with negative inflation.

The quick rise in inflation comes after a year of supply chain disruptions from lockdowns in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Canada’s maple syrup crisis

And finally, while the U.S. is drawing on its strategic oil reserves in the face of rising gas prices, Canada is also tapping into its own strategic reserves … of maple syrup.

Quebec Maple Syrup Producers announced they are releasing about 50 million pounds of syrup from its strategic reserves. Who knew such a thing even existed?  The Canadian province of Quebec produces 70% of the world’s maple syrup.

Canadian syrup producers said an unexpectedly shorter and warmer spring led to a 24% decrease in production. At the same time, worldwide demand for the sweet stuff increased by 21%.
