Looking Out the 10/40 Window is Moving! For more than two years now I’ve been sharing news and prayer requests here concerning the persecuted Church and the unreached who live in the 10/40 window of the world. I’ve also created a number of free resources that can help parents and teachers teach children about the needs of the 10/40 window. I’ve shared some of those resources here and some on another website, WriteBonnieRose.com. As of December 21, 2014, I am combining the two sites. All future Looking Out the 10/40 Window posts will appear on WriteBonnieRose.com. I thank you for joining me on this journey of prayer and learning, and I invite you to continue to share and learn with me at a new online home.
Please note, as a result of this move, I will no longer be able to keep https://lookingoutthe1040window.wordpress.com ad-free (as this is requires payment of an annual fee). The ads on this site are run solely at the discretion of Word Press, the blog’s host, and I do not have any control over their frequency or content. If you are sharing this site with children, to avoid potentially offensive content, I suggest printing the materials you would like to share with them.
If God called you to a slum, would you go?
There are days when I wish I could pull away from all the news-the news feed on my email home page, the news pages that abound, even the trending headlines on Facebook. But today I read a good news story, one that encouraged-and challenged-me.
It’s the story of Nitya. He is a Christian living in India. One day, he had a dream. He saw the place God wanted him to go work. There was just one problem-it was a slum. The people were hurting. They were sick. They were dying.
Nitya went anyway. He went to serve the people. He started a school. He listened to their problems. He showed them love.
And God started changing lives in the slum.
It reminds me of another news story, one that changed the world. It’s God’s story. The story of God sending His Son. We are hurting. We were sick. We were dying. But Jesus came anyway. He didn’t have to come, but He did. He came not just to change our lives but to save them.
That’s why we call it the Good News.
Would you join me in praying for Iraq and Burma today? Christian families are being driven from Mosul, Iraq, as militants take control of the city. Not only is their future quite uncertain, it is raising questions about the future of the entire nation. In Thailand and Burma, the Thai coup is capturing the world’s attention, but a large-scale humanitarian crisis for the Rohingya people continues to take lives every day. Would you also please pray for the Rakhine people of Burma as well as the Dawei? The majority of both groups have not heard of Jesus, and neither group have Scripture materials in their native language.
I’d also like to share with you a news report regarding the ongoing crisis of Christian girls being abducted and forced to marry, even as young as 12 years old. A new report, this time from a Pakistani Muslim non-governmental organization, has been released highlighting this form of persecution.
Praying for Peninsular Arabs, that their eyes would be opened to the true riches found in Christ alone.
It’s time for Vacation Bible School all over Asia! Please pray for the little ones who will be attending, for their families who may be hearing the Gospel for the first time, for the pastors and VBS leaders, and for the hearts of all to be touched by God’s love.http://www.gfa.org/pray/2014/april-vbs/
