    New year for some of our brethren in Vietnam and India:

    Vietnam Security Forces Attack Massive Prayer Meetings in Central Highlands; Dozens Injured
    Vietnamese security forces raided several prayer meetings of Montagnard Christians in the Central Highlands injuring dozens of believers, and at least one Montagnard Christian was fighting for his life Friday, January 5, following torture in prison, representatives said. The Montagnard Foundation Incorporated (MFI), which has close contacts with Montagnard Christians in Vietnam, said Sip, a man in his 30’s, was suffering "prolonged mistreatment, torture and beatings," while being detained. http://www.worthynews.com/christian/...ozens-injured/

    India: Anti-Christian Attacks Mark New Year
    After launching several anti-Christian attacks during the last week of 2006, Hindu extremists went on to beat more Christians, vandalize vehicles and organize a protest rally against a church, dampening New Year celebrations. Extremists beat four pastors and vandalized a vehicle in the north central state of Uttar Pradesh state on Tuesday (January 2). They attacked two more Christians and damaged another vehicle in neighboring Madhya Pradesh state, while others staged an anti-Christian rally in the southern state of Andhra Pradesh, the same day.

    Amen. Let their experiences spur us on to be faithful in our own trials, which are no less important or significant in God's eyes.

    I'm so sorry I've taken so long to post these ones, I've kinda taken my eye of the ball in more ways than one this last couple of weeks. These are kinda urgent.


    Sudan Christians Fear New Attacks As Bombings Continue
    Sudan's embattled Christian minority attended church services Sunday, January, 21, as the predominantly Muslim nation plunged further into renewed civil war, despite a peace agreement brokered by US Governor Bill Richardson and others this month. Government aircraft reportedly bombed wide areas of northern Darfur, just days after Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir vowed to adhere to the cease-fire. The latest violence added to concerns among Sudan's minority Christians, who have also been attacked by Sudanese security forces, churches and missionaries said. http://www.worthynews.com/christian/...ings-continue/

    Ethiopia Christian Killed, Houses Burned, Investigators Say
    Groups of Ethiopian Christians were reportedly still hiding in churches Thursday, January 18, after one believer was killed, Christian homes burned and several believers were threatened with execution for converting from Islam. Tensions this year began January 5 when Christian Ajja Delge was killed by an unknown person in the town of Kofele... His family reportedly believes that he was killed by a Muslim militant as the Kofele area is dominated by Muslims, but there was no claim of responsibility. Local Christians have said they fears local police will not conduct a proper investigation into Delge's murder. Shortly after the murder, homes of three Christian families were burned January 8 by Muslim militants in the village of Begge... Tareku Meres, Jemal Tasesa and Tamene Gemechu and their families are currently taking shelter at a local gospel church, the group added. "At last report, the police have not investigated the incident or taken any action to bring the arsonists to justice." http://www.worthynews.com/christian/...stigators-say/

    With the situation in Somalia also getting tense, the saints (and non-saints) in East Africa are in desperate need of our prayers.

    India Militants Attack Missionaries, Throw Teenager From TrainLess than two weeks after their activists reportedly threw a Hindu convert to Christianity from a train, Hindu groups attacked Christian missionaries in India accusing them of "religious conversion," BosNewsLife monitored Monday, January 22. New Delhi-based news agency Asian News International (ANI) said about 30 militants of the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) group and its youth-wing Bajrang Dal disrupted an evangelistic meeting Sunday, January 21, in the town of Chakeri in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. About 100 participants were expelled from the hall where they were gathering, ANI reported. "We came to know that in Richa guesthouse, some Christian missionaries were holding discourses on religious conversion. We would not have allowed that to happen. If they try to conduct such meetings again in future, we will give them a fitting reply and will take to the streets," VHP activist Sunil Singh was quoted. as saying. http://www.worthynews.com/christian/india-militants-attack-missionaries-throw-teenager-from-train/

    Praise report but prayer still needed:
    Pakistan: Court Overturns Life Sentence for Christian, another ‘blasphemy’ suspect, Shahid Masih, is freed on bail.A Pakistani court last week acquitted a Christian “blasphemy” prisoner on grounds that the convict was mentally unstable, while another Christian facing the same accusation was released on bail. Justice Muhammad Ijaz Chaudhry overturned Shahbaz Masih’s life sentence at a Lahore High Court hearing on Friday (January 19), citing evidence that the Christian was mentally handicapped. He has been incarcerated for more than five years...Threats from radical groups have forced Masih’s family into hiding several times during the case. More than 60 armed Muslim clerics were present at the Christian’s final Faisalabad court hearing in 2004, chanting slogans and praising the judge and Islamic law when he was found guilty. Sindhu remains uncertain whether Masih will eventually be reunited with his parents and five siblings in Lahore. The Catholic lawyer said he hoped his client would be able to obtain refugee status abroad.

    Another Christian in Faisalabad went into hiding last week while awaiting a court decision over accusations that he defiled the Quran. Faisalabad Judge Muhammad Tanveer Akbar granted Shahid Masih bail, saying that evidence against him was only “circumstantial,” said Sindhu, who is also defending this “blasphemy” suspect... Shahid Masih is one of only a few Pakistani Christian blasphemy suspects to obtain post-arrest bail from a lower court. Most blasphemy prisoners spend years in prison before an Additional District and Sessions Judge decides their fate...
    The blasphemy suspect’s mother has suffered from depression since her son’s arrest last September. “I am very sick, but I am happy to see my son,” Alice Masih told Compass from an undisclosed location in Faisalabad where she and her husband were visiting Shahid Masih. Due to his own work with blasphemy prisoners, much of it pro bono, Sindhu and his family have faced ongoing threats. The lawyer’s wife and sons have temporarily gone into hiding to avoid attack.

    Last month State Minister Tariq Azim hinted that “minorities would hear the ‘good news’ of amendments to the blasphemy law this Christmas,” the English-language Daily Times reported on December 25. Concrete amendments have yet to materialize."

    still praying famo for the body as a whole.

    2 Peter 3

    1This is now the second letter that I am writing to you, beloved. In both of them I am stirring up your sincere mind by way of reminder, 2that you should remember the predictions of the holy prophets and the commandment of the Lord and Savior through your apostles, 3knowing this first of all, that scoffers will come in the last days with scoffing, following their own sinful desires. 4They will say, "Where is the promise of his coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all things are continuing as they were from the beginning of creation." 5For they deliberately overlook this fact, that the heavens existed long ago, and the earth was formed out of water and through water by the word of God, 6and that by means of these the world that then existed was deluged with water and perished. 7But by the same word the heavens and earth that now exist are stored up for fire, being kept until the day of judgment and destruction of the ungodly.


    8But do not overlook this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. 9The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you,[a] not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance. 10But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will pass away with a roar, and the heavenly bodies[b] will be burned up and dissolved, and the earth and the works that are done on it will be exposed.[c]



    11Since all these things are thus to be dissolved, what sort of people ought you to be in lives of holiness and godliness, 12waiting for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be set on fire and dissolved, and the heavenly bodies will melt as they burn! 13But according to his promise we are waiting for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.



    14Therefore, beloved, since you are waiting for these, be diligent to be found by him without spot or blemish, and at peace. 15And count the patience of our Lord as salvation, just as our beloved brother Paul also wrote to you according to the wisdom given him, 16as he does in all his letters when he speaks in them of these matters. There are some things in them that are hard to understand, which the ignorant and unstable twist to their own destruction, as they do the other Scriptures. 17You therefore, beloved, knowing this beforehand, take care that you are not carried away with the error of lawless people and lose your own stability. 18But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.
    Jesus asked them: "Who do you say I am?" They said: "You are the eschatological manifestation of the ground of our being, the ontological foundation of our selfhood revealed." Jesus replied: "Huh?"
