Muslim terrorists displaced 140,000 Nigerians

The Islamic terrorist organization Boko Haram has displaced over 140,000 people in Nigeria’s Borno State this year. That’s according to United Nations Undersecretary-General Mark Lowcock.

Boko Haram has targeted Christinas in particular with their violence, killing two Christian aid workers just last month and vowing to kill every Christian they capture in the future.

Matthew 5:10 says, “Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”

Despite “cease-fire”, Kurdish & Christian villages bombed in Syria

A few weeks ago, U.S. forces pulled out of Syria, followed by an invasion into northern Syria by Turkey.

Although Turkey agreed to a cease-fire in a 19-mile wide zone between itself and Syria, local Kurdish and Christian villages report the bombing campaigns are continuing.

On the front lines, Dave Eubank, director of the humanitarian group Free Burma Rangers, told WORLD Radio the area “is a genocide zone because if you stay—especially if you’re a Kurd or a Christian—you’re going to die.”

Please pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ there.

Bahamas Pastor: Hurricane Dorian “has drawn us closer together”

Here now is the our third Bahamas report from Kevin Swanson, Director of Generations and the founder of The Worldview in 5 Minutes, following the devastation of Hurricane Dorian in the Bahamas.

SWANSON: “This is Kevin Swanson with Pastor Hartley Thompson from the Freeport Gospel Chapel in Freeport, Grand Bahamas. And they weathered the storm, the big one. It was the biggest storm in the history of…”

PASTOR: “In this area. This the whole Caribbean area, the most devastating.”

SWANSON: “Let me ask what the extent of the damage was in your congregation. How did it affect your church?”

THOMPSON: “The extent of the damage was very, very broad because some 30 or so persons had to be given financial support to aid them in the rebuilding or the restoration of their homes and properties. Many of us, like ourselves, had to move out and live with other family and our friends while our home is being repaired. Some people, even in our meeting, have lost their jobs because Freeport has been practically washed out as far as work is concerned.”

SWANSON: “Can you speak to the spiritual impact that the hurricane had on the people on the island?”

THOMPSON: “I can speak for our church. It has drawn us closer together because, for instance, we have had to add a lot of meetings to our services just to keep people close and in touch.

“I think the spiritual has been evident in a positive way because more people are now calling. I think you can hear more intensity in their prayers now. In fact, our little temporary sanctuary we have there was filled to capacity on Sunday.”

SWANSON: “So, where are things now in terms of repairs?  And how can people in churches in America help at this point?”

THOMPSON: “I think our main need now is for construction material because we have a lot to do in the chapel. And we want to get back in there as soon as possible by trusting the Lord to see us through. He has promised never to fail us. And He never has.”

Hebrews 13:5 says, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”

If you’d like to help Freeport Gospel Chapel cover the costs of rebuilding their church and the homes from their members which will be about $165,000, please consider sending a tax-deductible check to: Generations, P.O. Box 1398, Elizabeth, CO 80107. Write “Rebuild Bahama church” in the memo.

Or you can go on-line, to and select “Support International Ministry Outreach” in the drop-down menu.  Every penny that you give will help to rebuild Free Gospel Chapel and the homes of members of that church.

Democrat-led Congress votes for public impeachment hearings

The Democratic-led U.S. House of Representatives voted yesterday to allow for public impeachment hearings in Congress against President Donald Trump over his July request for Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden.

PELOSI: “I doubt anybody in this place comes to Congress to take the oath of office to impeach the president of the United States unless his actions are jeopardizing our honoring our oath of office.”

The White House and Republicans have criticized the Democrats for conducing secret testimony hearings and for not setting up any official rules for the investigation.

Biden denied Communion because of his pro-abortion stand

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden visited Saint Anthony Catholic Church in Florence, South Carolina on Sunday, but was barred from communion, reports the South Carolina Morning News.

Rev. Robert Morey told the newspaper, “This past Sunday, I had to refuse Holy Communion to former Vice President Joe Biden. Holy Communion signifies we are one with God, each other and the Church. Our actions should reflect that. Any public figure who advocates for abortion places himself or herself outside of Church teaching.”

New York Democratic Gov signs law censoring church free speech

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo  signed a bill into law last week, prohibiting churches and other non-profits from campaigning for or against political candidates.

The bill is a state-level version of the federal Johnson Amendment. Cuomo said the bill comes in response to attempts by President Trump to strengthen religious liberty by repealing the Johnson Amendment.

World Series star kneels to pray before game

And finally, the Washington Nationals defeated the Houston Astros on Wednesday night, becoming the World Series champions for the first time ever.

The team’s star, 21-year-old Juan Soto, hit three homeruns in the World Series, the youngest player ever to do so.

Throughout the season, Soto has been kneeling on the field with fellow player Victor Robles to pray before games, reports CBN News.

After a playoffs win against the Dodgers, Soto posted this verse from James 4:10. “Humble yourselves before the Lord, and He will exalt you.”
