The major cities of the United States are changing both in their belief systems and ethno-cultural makeup. How should the Good News be presented to them in order to be Good News? Besides sharing biblical inspiration plus stories of God's grace at work through our ministry in various parts of the world, I hope to address this and many other issues important to our Christian faith.

None of us wished for it. But COVID-19 delivers to our doorstep what is, perhaps, the greatest evangelistic opportunity of our lifetime. It is an unusual opportunity in the Twin Cities, North America, Europe, Asia, Africa and around the world. A scared world is open for spiritual business. The masks are off. People are open to hear that there is hope through Jesus Christ. For the church, the times we are in may have changed, due to COVID-19. But the mission we are on has not changed . The need to share the hope Jesus provides is now more urgent than ever. Our nation is now the epicenter of the COVID-19 pandemic. Severe cases and deaths are mounting from coast to coast.

When we visited the Great Mercy Children's Center on the outskirts of Kitale town, Kenya on Tuesday earlier this week, the only food they had available was maize and beans cooked together. Pastor Ken Kimiywe, Sr. Pastor of NPC welcomes Sammy to speak to his congregation during the missions emphasis Sunday. For the most part, the children as well as their caretakers had been fasting and praying that God would provide some money for them to pay for electricity which had been disconnected as well as buy some food. Other than that, they hardly showed any signs of distress. Some among the ninty three kids at the center are as young as two years old. The older ones are in their early teens. And they all displayed such great faith and confidence in God's a
