What’s the message through the mess?

By | MNN, news, persecution, trends, Web site | No Comments

You’ve heard the headlines. The Obama administration is caught in scandal after scandal. Persecution against Christians in Eritrea is at an all-time high. Human trafficking is up 18 percent in Europe. The Oklahoma City tornado kills school children. Syria continues in civil war. Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood continues identifying Christians for violence.

The world is in chaos….at least it appears to be that way.

The reality is that God is in control. The amazing thing about these headlines is that God is using each and every one to glorify Himself. Have you thought about that?

Each situation, tragic as it may seem to us, God is using to motivate His people to think outside of the box to do something more for Him.

That’s the tricky part for Mission Network News. Our job is to tell you about the news and information nobody else is talking about with a unique perspective — the perspective of how God is using people like you and me to accomplish this.

I’m always amazed at how God does this. He brings in what appears to be a bleak situation, then BOOM He does something incredible. It just goes to prove that our plans aren’t always His plans. The tricky part is trying to figure how to match up your plans with God’s plans.

I’m still trying to figure that out. Stay tuned.

Help us challenge the NEXT generation

You have probably seen my posts about our website. I’m not going to go into great detail. But, to recap briefly — IT’S OLD, and it needs to be updated and reprogrammed. But, we still have more than 50-percent to reach our goal of $15,000.

Get an MNN mouse pad when you giveWe NEED your gift of $50 and $100, but we also need some large gifts of $1,000 or $2,000. We need it NOW because it’s being match dollar-for-dollar by a generous donor, up to $7,500.

Why do we need a new Web site? Well, it’s simple — we can’t do some of the things we’re called to do. One of those things is calling young people — the next generation — to join this task of sharing their faith with those who haven’t heard. Yes, we’re doing it on Facebook and Twitter, but we’re missing out in one specific area — phones.

The new website will allow us to provide news bites to those who are using smart phone technology like I-phones and Androids. As part of the reprogramming effort will be creating special apps for each of these devices so those using them can get news and information they need to be Christians who are not only WILLING to go, but more informed where they can go.

Your generous donation can be made here: https://www.MNNonline.org/donate/special and give as generously as you can so we can meet this matching grant quickly!  God bless you for what you’re going to do.
