Letter from Zimbabwe ! A plea for help !

This is a copy of an e-mail we got this morning from a missionary in Zimbabwe. For obvious reasons, the name is not posted.

I felt compelled to share this with you all and ask for your prayers for all of those caught up in this terrible plight. Especially pray for our Christian Brothers and Sisters who are still there, answering the call, at all risk.

Here is the e-mail;

(Letter from Zimbabwe sent in by  … name withheld for his protection)
I reckon that these are the last days of TKM and ZPF. The darkest hour is always before dawn.
We are all terrified at what they are going to destroy next……..I mean they are actually ploughing down brick and mortar houses and one white family with twin boys of 10 had no chance of salvaging anything when100 riot police came in with AK47’s and bulldozers and demolished their beautiful house – 5 bedrooms and pine ceilings – because it was “too close to the airport”, so we are feeling extremely insecure right now.
 You know – I am aware that this does not help you sleep at night, but if you do not know – how can you help? Even if you send your guardian angels to be with us – that is a help – but I feel so cut off from you all knowing I cannot tell you what’s going on here simply because you will feel uncomfortable. There is no ways we can leave here so that is not an option.

I ask that you all pray for us in the way that you know how, and let me know that you are thinking of us … that’s all. You can’t just be in denial and pretend/believe it’s not going on.
To be frank with you, it’s genocide in the making and if you do not believe me, read the Genocide Report by Amnesty International which says we are – IN level 7 – (level 8 is after it’s happened and everyone is in denial).

If you don’t want me to tell you these things-how bad it is—then it means you have not dealt with your own fear, but it does not help me to think you are turning your back on our situation. We need you, please, to get the news OUT that we are all in a fearfully dangerous situation here. Too many people turn their backs and say – oh well, that’s what happens in Africa. This Government has GONE MAD and you need to help us publicize our plight— or how can we be rescued? It’s a reality! The petrol queues are a reality, the pall of smoke all around our city is a reality, the thousands of homeless people sleeping outside in 0 Celsius with no food, water, shelter and bedding are a reality. Today a family approached me, brother of the gardener’s wife with two small children. Their home was trashed and they will have to sleep outside. We already support 8 adult people and a child on this property, and electricity is going up next month by 250% as is water.
 How can I take on another family of 4 —–and yet how can I turn them away to sleep out in the open?
I am not asking you for money or a ticket out of here – I am asking you to FACE the fact that we are in deep and terrible danger and want you please to pass on our news and pictures. So PLEASE don’t just press the delete button! Help best in the way that you know how.

Do face the reality of what is going on here and help us SEND OUT THE WORD.. The more people who know about it, the more chance we have of the United Nations coming to our aid. Please don’t ignore or deny what’s happening. Some would like to be protected from the truth BUT then, if we are eliminated, how would you feel? “If only we knew how bad it really was we could have helped in some way”.
[I know we chose to stay here and that some feel we deserve what’s coming to us]
For now,— we ourselves have food, shelter, a little fuel and a bit of money for the next meal – but what is going to happen next? Will they start on our houses? All property is going to belong to the State now. I want to send out my Title Deeds to one of you because if they get a hold of those, I can’t fight for my rights.

Censorship!—-We no longer have SW radio [which told us everything that was happening] because the Government jammed it out of existence – we don’t have any reporters, and no one is allowed to photograph. If we had reporters here, they would have an absolute field day. Even the pro-Government Herald has written that people are shocked, stunned, bewildered and blown mindless by the wanton destruction of many folks homes, which are supposed to be ‘illegal’ but for which a huge percentage actually do have licenses.

Please! – do have some compassion and HELP by sending out the articles and personal reports so that something can/may be done. “I am one. I cannot do everything, —but I can do something.. And because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do the something that I can do. What I can do, I should do. And what I should do, by the grace of God, I will do.”

Off to the “Florida Healing Revival”

Hi guys,

 After much prayer and thought, Teresa and I are heading on down to Florida to check out the move of God at Lakeland Florida. In case you haven’t heard, there is a move of God going into it’s 4th week. There have been many miraculous healings, some with documented doctors reports, but more importantly there has been many come to The Lord Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior.

I know there will be many who will speak out against this “move” and say they don’t believe it to be of God. All I can say is, do like me and go check it out for yourself!

When there was contention between the Apostle Paul and the other Apostles, people were sent to check him out. They were able to see first hand what was going on before making a rash decission or pass some wrong judgement.

I encourage everyone to think of this, “If this is not from God, then it will fail and fall to the wayside, BUT if it is of God then you will be fighting against Him”.

The site will not be moderated after Friday, so if you post then your post may not appear until Monday.

Love in Christ Jesus

Why pray amiss ? A look at Acts12!

I was recently re-reading Acts12 and as I was reading it again, I got something I hadn’t even seen before.

The story is of Peter being imprisoned and his subsequent release from prison by an angel of The Lord. All of this is great stuff and we have read it and heard it preached, BUT, here is where I want to take you.

In Verse 12, when Peter appears at the door of the house where others had been praying, presumably for him, they didn’t believe it was him.

The Holy Spirit hit me with this, ” Why bother to pray for something if you can’t even believe in it when it happens?”.

Jesus taught us that if we pray, believing, then we shall receive. [Mark 11:24]

Here these people had been praying for God to intercede on Peter’s behalf, and when HE does, they can’t believe it is true.

That really sounds like the “Church” of today. Most of them praying for something from God and really not expecting God to answer their prayers.

Lord, I believe, BUT, help my unbelief!!!

That’s a sad statement! BUT, yet it is true of many today in their prayer life!

Why is it that they can trust God for their Salvation, but have difficulty trusting HIM for anything else?

God loves us more than we can imagine. We can not fathom that kind of Love. He is looking for someone to Love HIM back, with all our heart!! Not half of it. Fully Love Him and Trust Him with all of your heart and your need. HE won’t let you down and you can REALLY BELIEVE it to be true !
