Heifer Update for May 25th

“But if anyone has the worlds’ goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God’s love abide in him?”                                   I John 3:17 Today we will visit Oaxaca, Mexico.  Here we find Aurea Carmela López Cruz – 36 year old mother of two.  Her mother died when she was 2, then was raised by two older siblings.  She said “my father thought that girls didn’t need to go to school.  They were only…

Something more

Revelation 21:22-22:5 by Rene A. Perez Most Sundays after church we pick up fast food. Usually we go through the drive-through to bring the food home. It never fails that whenever we go, the same homeless man approaches us to ask for money; and every time, if we can, we give him a few coins. One day I realized God was asking me to do more. I did not hear a voice out of nowhere; I simply felt a tug…

Proverbs 14:31 – “Whoever oppresses a poor man insults his Maker, but he who is generous to the needy honors Him.” Bee Question – Do bees make honey in May? Have you checked the price of organic honey compared to the rest of the honey varieties?

Persuaded by God

Acts 16:9-15 by Rene A. Perez What amazing ways God employs to persuade us to follow! The book of Acts tells of Paul’s vision of a man in Macedonia who begs him to come and help. Although Paul and Silas conclude that God is calling them to Macedonia, I can think of numerous undertakings I considered to be of my making before I realized that it was God’s idea all along. For Paul and Silas, it begins with God’s vision.…

Praising God

Psalm 148:1-6 By Bo Prossert Creation is groaning and has gotten our attention recently. The fury of hurricanes, tsunamis, and tornadoes; the rumblings of volcanoes, earthquakes, and mudslides; warming of polar caps, destruction of acid rain: all this and more demand that we pay attention. If we listen closely, we will hear the groans of our world-not just its inhabitants but also the trees, the stones, the water, the air! Are we listening? Are we responding? God commanded, and the…
