Terrorism and Hope

How sad it is that a human being would be so set on destroying others through acts of terrorism as seen at the Boston Marathon! In the midst of grief for the lives lost and those injured, we raise our eyes to Jesus Christ to pray for the United States and for our world. He is the hope of the nations!

May we also reflect on the privilege, longevity/bravity, and meaning of life so as to apply our ...hearts to wisdom (Psalms 90:12). As we can all atest, the statistics on death are impressive. One out of one dies. 
 
The irony is that the statistic, none the less, speaks of hope for the Christian. It is hopeful because it informs us that there is more to life than what we presently see. It assures us that our longing for more than this world can offer is not merely a dream. In Christ we are invited to a new life of forgiveness, newness, and new quality of relational life that will never fade nor be tarnished.  In the terror of the cross of Christ was born the seed and mystery of life that pronounces death to terror itself.

OPEN FOR SPIRITUAL BUSINESS- Could COVID-19 open a window for Spiritual Awakening?

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. Doctors, general medical workers and other essential service providers continue to do all they can to stave off the pandemic. 3 million Americans have lost their jobs. Children across the nation and worldwide are out of schools. Our economy and other global economies remain on shaky ground. All professional s

A Medical Doctor With a Passion for God, a Love for People, and an Enduring Faith

Our Mission in Kenya Continued well. He is humble, he is joyful, and he works hard to make a difference among a Kenyan rural town's community.  That is Dr. Nathan Matasi, a gynecologist serving in Kitale town, Western Kenya.  There are hardly any hospitals in this part of the world.  The one government operated hospital in Kitale town serves a population of over one million people from the town and the surrounding rural farm communities.  Sammy and Gary share a moment with Dr. Matasi next to a corn field in Kitale on Tuesday morning before heading out for the prayer service in Nairobi, some 400 miles away.  Here you will find patients sleeping on the floor in overcrowded hallways, pregnant mothers sharing beds, and daily lines forming at the out-patient unit.  There are hardly modern equipment available for the few qualified doctors and nurses to use for diagnostics or treatment.  Majority of the patients can hardly afford to pay for quality medical attention. Yet it is

Orphaned Kids with Mt. Kilimanjaro-size Faith

Sammy speaks to several thousand believers in multiple services at NPC Church, Valley Road, Nairobi Kenya on September 14th regarding global missions For four nights, they had no electricity in their humble dwelling.  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
