HOW CAN ONE POSSIBLY JUSTIFY KILLING CHILDREN????
Somehow, this has been worked out and justified. It's just hard to grasp. The death toll in Pakistan from the brutal school massacre is 145....almost all children.
Before the wheels of the headlines turn to another story, I just had to speak my heart on this matter. Here's a pretty comprehensive NBC newscast depicting the horror of the attack - "DEATH ALL AROUND ME" - VICTIMS RELIVE SCHOOL MASSACRE
I can only imagine how their hearts are broken by this horrifying act of cruelty and insane evil. We can only PRAY that those responsible for this brutal act will be brought to justice.
Air Mobile will continue to reach out and bring help and hope into Pakistan but will not be publishing the details for security reasons. Please pray for us as we continue to reach into this country that has been devastated by terrorism and cruelty. Jesus loves the Pakistani people!! Remember the Word of God...."For God so loved the world...."
Cindy and I have been awaiting the news from Aldrich, James and Sharla, that they were safe and sound at home in the Philippines. The news came at midnight. We were so happy and thankful that they had arrived safely, though quite exhausted. One jet flying in the region had to make an emergency landing due to severe turbulence. We we were praying for our young friends all the way home.
Today, we'll be working hard, "attacking" our "To Do List" and preparing for our next mission. We have Air Mobile Rescuers to build and logistics to work out to place units in India, Mexico, Pakistan and the Philippines.
At the same time, we're excited about taking a "Christmas Break". We're planning to dash up to the cabin in the Tennessee Mountains as soon as the kids get out of school. Cindy and I definitely need a break!
As we launch into this day, we're just thankful to be alive and available to our Lord for service. We're so appreciative to have you on-board with us with your precious prayer, love and support! THANK YOU!!

I CASUALLY OPENED MY BIBLE TO READ PROVERBS 16 & THEN SAW THIS ARTICLE....
Do we take our freedoms for granted? Certainly, I've been guilty. Just scanned this article about the price for "smuggling" Bibles into Saudi Arabia - Now, this report is "Unconfirmed" and I hope and pray it's simply not true....however, I suspect it is. Here's the story - DEATH PENALTY FOR SMUGGLING BIBLES
As I held my old tattered Bible this morning, my heart was broken for the millions...billions that are being "forced to believe"....under penalty of death, a religion.
The scripture, that is so precious to Christians came to my heart...as I held my precious Book..."For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life".
Jesus was "executed" for us that we might have eternal life and it is our CHOICE to believe or not to believe in Him. He paid the price for our sins by giving His life for us. Now, that is love!
So, those of you who are blessed to have a Bible in your possession, pick it up lovingly and with appreciation in your heart and cherish the Words of Life and experience the love of God.
In stark contrast to these precious Words of hope and life, this horrifying story is unfolding in "REAL TIME" before our very eyes....PESHEWAR SCHOOL ATTACK: TALIBAN BURN TEACHER ALIVE IN FRONT OF PUPILS & BEHEAD CHILDREN!!
Folks, my heart is breaking and we stand ready to be used by our Lord to bring His love to a lost and suffering and cruel world!
Well, here we are alive and ready to serve our Lord today! As always, THANK YOU for your precious love, prayer and support!!
