The Middle East in Focus
"Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed," says the LORD, who has compassion on you." (Isaiah 54:10)
1. PMO to Jordan on Temple Mount: Jerusalem is acting responsibly, and Amman knows that - Jerusalem Post
One day after 13 Jews were removed from Jerusalem's Temple Mount for illegally praying at the contested holy site, the Jordanian government on Monday warned Israel of "serious consequences" if the area's delicate status quo is breached.
Sunday morning's impasse was further exacerbated when a group of Muslims was also removed from the compound by police for chanting "Allahu Akbar" ("God is great") at the nearly 1,000 Jewish and Christian visitors who ascended it for the holiday.
In a sharply worded statement issued Monday, Jordanian Media Affairs Minister Muhammad al-Momani accused "Israeli settlers and police" of flagrantly violating international laws and conventions by "storming al-Aksa Mosque," which he said could lead to "serious consequences."
The ongoing and wholly unsubstantiated allegations that the Israeli government surreptitiously intends to seize al-Aksa - Islam's third holiest site - has led to the recent wave of deadly terrorism which has largely fueled what many are deeming a third intifada.
Indeed, Hamas, the Palestinian Authority and numerous other Palestinian organizations have aggressively taken to social media and other news outlets since October to claim that the mosque is "in danger" and must be defended.
2. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas faces heat for UN resolution wavering - -Jerusalem Post
A set of Palestinian initiatives aimed at advancing policy through anti-Israel measures at international organizations, or using international forums, appear to be in disarray following a series of setbacks.
Late last week, Irinia Bokova, the director of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) was forced to repudiate a Palestinian-backed initiative that ignored all historic Jewish ties to the Temple Mount area of Jerusalem's Old City.
"This decision was made by the economic council and the management council of UNESCO which are both management bodies, and was not made by me," she clarified, in a statement, adding that she maintains "Jerusalem is a Holy Land of the three monotheistic religions, a place of dialogue for all Jewish, Christian and Muslim people, nothing should be undertaken to alter its integrity and authenticity. It is a mosaic of cultures and peoples, whose history has shaped the history of all humanity. Only respect and dialogue can build the trust we need to move forward - this is the strength of UNESCO, for the benefit of all."
3. Israel charges 7 Jews for crimes against Palestinians - FOX News
JERUSALEM - Israel has charged seven young Israeli Jews in connection with crimes committed against Palestinians.
The seven Israelis, among them two minors and a soldier, were charged with arson, assault and weapons possession, among others.
Monday's indictment says the suspects torched the cars and residences of Arabs in Israel and the West Bank. In one case, the suspects are accused of attacking a Palestinian farmer with rods and tear gas, wounding him.
4. Russia and Syria sign deals worth $850 million to restore Syrian infrastructure - Business Insider
MOSCOW- Syria and Russia have signed agreements worth 850 million euros to restore infrastructure in the Arab nation, Russia's RIA news agency quoted Syrian Prime Minister Wael al-Halaki as saying on Monday.
"The Russian side were receptive to the idea of restoring infrastructure, accordingly a number of deals were signed," RIA quoted al-Halaki as saying.
5. Saudi prince unveils sweeping plans to end 'addiction' to oil - Reuters
The powerful young prince overseeing Saudi Arabia's economy unveiled ambitious plans on Monday aimed at ending the kingdom's "addiction" to oil and transforming it into a global investment power.
Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman said the world's top oil exporter expects state oil company Saudi Aramco [SDABO.UL] to be valued at more than $2 trillion ahead of the sale of less than 5 percent of it through an initial public offering (IPO).
He added that the kingdom would raise the capital of its public investment fund to 7 trillion riyals ($2 trillion) from 600 billion riyals ($160 billion).
The plans also included changes that would alter the social structure of the ultra-conservative Muslim kingdom by pushing for women to have a bigger economic role and by offering improved status to resident expatriates.
"We will not allow our country ever to be at the mercy of commodity price volatility or external markets," Prince Mohammed said at his first news conference with international journalists, who were invited to a Riyadh palace for the event.
The Daily Brief
1. Director of National Intel Clapper: ISIS, Al-Qaida Could Strike Before US Election - Newsmax
Terror groups like ISIS or al-Qaida could launch strikes within the U.S. to affect the presidential election this November, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper told Newsmax Monday morning. Clapper, the top official in the U.S. intelligence community, would not say whether the terrorist groups preferred or opposed any particular candidate.
But, in an obvious reference to the Republican front-runner Donald Trump, he said he was struck by "how simple things are on the campaign trail and how those same issues are very hard in the confines of the [White House] Situation Room."
Clapper said he was concerned about some of the rhetoric in this year's presidential campaign, however. "Certainly you worry about rhetoric on the campaign trail," he said. "I think the history has been that once a president is inaugurated and is in office and realizes the burden and the responsibilities of the position, I think that has a tempering effect on anyone. I think it will here regardless of who's elected." (Read more)
- Father, we thank You that we do not depend upon man to deliver us from evil. We pray that any plans to attack the US before the election will be thwarted, and that the campaign rhetoric will be calmed.
- "Some trust in chariots, some in horses, but we will remember the Name of the Lord Our God." (Psalm 20:7)
2. Iran: U.S. 'incapable' of attacking us - Israel National News
The Iranian Navy Commander on Sunday said that the United States, which possesses the most powerful military in the world, doesn't have the 'capability' to attack Iran, in the latest escalation of hostility from Tehran since the controversial nuclear deal last July.
Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi, Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Navy, was quoted by the Iranian Fars News Agency making the bombastic statement at a ceremony in the central Iranian city of Yazd.
'The US doesn't have the capability to launch a military attack against Iran and knows that in such a case, the damage and blows that it will have to sustain will be way beyond its merits and gains,' claimed Fadavi. (Read more)
- Lord, we hear the arrogance of Iran and know that though they rage and rail against us, You are the Strength we depend upon.
- "The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved; He uttered His voice, the earth melted. The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge." (Psalm 46:6,7)
3. ISIS claims downing of Syrian regime jet near Damascus - CNN
ISIS claims it shot down a Syrian air force jet east of Damascus on Friday and captured the pilot, according to Amaq, the media agency affiliated with the terrorist group.
The claim appeared to be at least partially corroborated by the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which is opposed to both ISIS and the Syrian regime.
The Observatory said a Syrian warplane had crashed in Dakwa, southeast of Damascus. But it said it had no information on whether the crash was due to an attack or a technical failure, nor on the fate of the crew. ISIS published a video claiming to show the flaming wreckage of the jet, with what appears to be a Syrian flag painted on the wing. CNN cannot confirm the authenticity of the video. (Read more)
- Lord God, it is difficult to believe the veracity of any report issued by ISIS. We ask for wisdom for those in authority to know whether this report is true, and if so, how to respond. In Your Name, amen.
- "I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye." (Psalm 32:8)
4. US Flies F-22s to Romania as Show of Strength to Russia - ABC News
The U.S. Air Force on Monday flew in two F-22 Raptor fighter jets to Romania as a show of strength to deter Russian intervention in Ukraine.
The fighter jets landed at the Mihail Kogalniceanu air base, near the Black Sea port of Constanta in southeast Romania. A U.S. statement says they possess sophisticated sensors allowing the pilot to track, identify, shoot and kill air-to-air threats before being detected. The fighters also have a significant capability to attack surface targets.
Russia-backed separatists have been fighting government troops in Ukraine since April 2014, leaving at least 9,100 dead. The conflict has left many neighboring countries in Central and Eastern Europe jittery about Russia's intentions in the region. (Read more)
- Lord God, in this time of escalating tensions between Russia and America, we cry out for an easing of this stress, and a return to more peaceful times. Lord, if it be Your will that we yet live in peace for the time ahead, then we ask that You would intervene to bring this about, in Jesus' name, amen.
- "There is . . . a time for war and a time for peace . . ." (Ecclesiastes 3:8)
5. Russia and Syria sign deals worth $850 million to restore Syrian infrastructure - Business Insider
MOSCOW- Syria and Russia have signed agreements worth 850 million euros to restore infrastructure in the Arab nation, Russia's RIA news agency quoted Syrian Prime Minister Wael al-Halaki as saying on Monday.
"The Russian side were receptive to the idea of restoring infrastructure, accordingly a number of deals were signed," RIA quoted al-Halaki as saying. (Read more)
- Meanwhile, Father God, we see the nations beginning to align themselves according to the Word of God that describes the alliances that will be in place during the end of days. Abba, if You desire that this agreement between Russia and Syria not stand, then we thank You for causing this to happen. But more importantly, help us each to discern the times, that we might be ready for Your soon coming. In Jesus' name, amen and amen.
- " . . . for dominion belongs to the LORD and he rules over the nations."
6. Obama's federalization of police grows nationwide - WND
Announced Friday, 53 police departments around the country have signed on so far to the White House-pressed Police Data Initiative, a plan by President Obama to make crime-fighting more technology-driven and accountable to higher-ups, but that is seen by critics as a not-so-subtle federal takeover of community policing. The program, which comes by way of a recommendation from the Task Force on 21st Century Policing that Obama launched in December - which was created by the White House in response to widely reported instances of police-community clashes and alleged cop discrimination against minorities - is aimed at enhancing "data transparency and analysis" among police departments around the nation.(Read more)
- Father God, forgive the iniquity of our nation. Put Your words of intercession in our mouths and help us to be faithful each day, joining in unity with the Spirit of Christ and Your will, Amen.
- Behold, the Lord's hand is not so short that it cannot save; Nor is His ear so dull that it cannot hear. (Isaiah 59:1)
7. Virginia Governor enables 200,000 felons to vote in November - WND
Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe promised Friday to use an executive order to restore voting rights to felons, an announcement that leaves the Republican-dominated legislature - some of whom have opposed an overturn to the Civil War-era prohibition - in the cold.
As the New York Times reported: "The sweeping order, in a swing state that could play a role in deciding the November presidential election, will enable all felons who have served their prison time and finished parole to register to vote." By the numbers, more than 200,000 felons could see their voting rights restored - most of whom are blacks, the newspaper reported.
"There's no question that we've had a horrible history in voting rights as relates to African-Americans - we should remedy it," McAuliffe said, the New York Times reported. "We should do it as soon as we possibly can." (Read more)
- Father God, we pray our elected officials will proceed through regular law and order established by our state and national constitutions. We pray for the will of the people to be honored through the process of debate, consensus, voting and legislation, and we lift this up to You Lord, in the Name of the Lord of all, Jesus, Amen.
- Thus says the Lord, "Preserve justice and do righteousness, For My salvation is about to come And My righteousness to be revealed. (Isaiah 56:1)
8. It's Time to Stand Up to Transgender Activism - Charisma News
Within a 48-hour period this week, a Federal court ruled that a school could not require children to use the bathroom that corresponds to their biological sex, Target announced it was making all its bathrooms gender neutral, a school council in England sent out a letter to parents, telling them to encourage their 4-year-old children to choose the gender they most identify with before starting school, be it male, female, or something else, and baseball legend Curt Schilling was fired by ESPN for sharing an "anti-transgender" post. (Note that ESPN fired Schilling because it is an "inclusive" company. The Orwellian doublespeak continues.)
It is high time, then, that we stand up to this social madness and say, "Enough!" (Read more)
- Holy Father, we pray for those who identify as transgendered, transracial and transspecies. We know they truly struggle as this is the place where the enemy is deceiving them. You have placed Your image within each one and we pray for them to embrace the image You have ordained, male or female, for blessing and purpose, in Jesus Name, Amen.
- But the king will rejoice in God; Everyone who swears by Him will glory, For the mouths of those who speak lies will be stopped. (Psalm 63:11)
The people went out to see what had happened; and they came to Jesus, and found the man from whom the demons had gone out, sitting down at the feet of Jesus, clothed and in his right mind. (Luke 8:35)
9. Battle over N.C. transgender law intensifies as lawmakers reconvene - Reuters
Lawmakers returned to Raleigh to begin a short session designed to address the state budget. But controversy over the new law, which has drawn reaction from U.S. presidential candidates, U.S. President Barack Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron among others, is expected to dominate.
Fifty-four people were arrested at the Legislative Building as they protested against the law on Monday, General Assembly police Officer Scott Cameron said.
"Our state is a state of crisis," Chris Sgro, executive director of the Equality North Carolina advocacy group, said earlier in the day before activists delivered petitions to Republican Governor Pat McCrory's office demanding the law's repeal. (Read more)
- Father God, we live in a nation that has now lost its moral compass. We do praise You for the Governor of the State of North Carolina and its legislature, whose law identifies evil, as evil. We ask that, in the aftermath of the passage of this "bathroom bill," You would strengthen these leaders to stand, in Jesus' name, amen and amen.
- "And I will make you to this people a fortified bronze wall; And they will fight against you, But they shall not prevail against you; For I am with you to save you And deliver you," says the Lord." (Jeremiah 15:20)
10. State flags removed at US Capitol over Confederate emblem - USA Today
State flags, including the controversial Mississippi flag featuring the Confederate battle emblem, will no longer hang in the tunnel at the U.S. Capitol where each had been displayed.
Rep. Candice Miller, R-Mich., said Thursday the flags, which had been removed during renovations, will instead be replaced with prints of each state's commemorative coin.
"Given the controversy surrounding confederate imagery, I decided to install a new display,'' Miller, chairwoman of the House Administration Committee, said in a statement. "I am well aware of how many Americans negatively view the Confederate flag, and, personally, I am very sympathetic to these views. However, I also believe that it is not the business of the federal government to dictate what flag each state flies.'' (Read more)
- Heavenly Father, we pray You would remove the bitter root of racism from this nation and bring true forgiveness and reconciliation among our people. Heal these wounds, Lord, as only You can, by the scourging of Jesus we pray, Amen.
- But He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; The chastening for our well-being fell upon Him, And by His scourging we are healed. (Isaiah 53:5)

The American Christian and Civic responsibility
Romans 12:21 instructs "Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good." After being imprisoned and warned by the high priests (the governing body of the Jews) to not conduct ministry in the name of Jesus, Peter and the apostles responded in Acts 5:29, "We ought to obey God rather than men." In developing the governing principles over the children of Israel, Jethro advised Moses in Exodus 18:21, "...provide out of all the people able men, such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness; and place such over them (the people)..." This is the basis of American government the Founders used. There are many justifications of civic responsibility in the Bible, but are Christians using them?
The foundational social contract from which our Republic was derived is that there are inalienable rights endowed by the Creator and that government is formed to protect those rights. The basis of representative government is predicated on an assumption that God created man and conveyed certain rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. These rights are protected in our Constitution. They are specified in detail by the Bill of Rights, among them are freedom of religion, of speech, of gun ownership, of privacy, and of due process. Government was limited by the Constitution to protect these rights and the security of the people.
Government has extended far beyond its intended Constitutional limits. Tares among the wheat have entered in and twisted the meaning of the Constitution's words. Contemporary government has become the source of rights rather than the Creator through the infiltration of progressive humanism thought and representation. As we stand today, political parties are a well spring of such thought, and Christian America seems confused on how to oppose them. John Jay, a Founder and first Supreme Court Justice, put it succinctly: "Providence has given our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty, as well as privilege and interest, of a Christian nation to select and prefer Christians for their rulers."
Errant teaching from the pulpit and from Christian leaders has created disillusionment and apathy in Christians about their civic responsibility. Some are acting in error under the direction of the anti-biblical theology of dominionism. Others are failing to act because of a hyper-response to teachings about the rapture. There are many other teachings that have contributed to Christian ineffectiveness in self government. Be not confused. As an American and as a Christian, we all have civic responsibility. God gave us a nation where we have freedom of self government. The Founders said it would only work with a moral and religious people. If Christians shirk their civic responsibility, the nation will fall. And it is. We've got to engage, not pull back. Shine your light wherever you are. State your opinions. Influence those around you.
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!

Family Research Council to Attend Oral Argument in Key Military Religious Freedom Case
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- On Wednesday, Lt. Gen. (Ret.) Jerry Boykin, Family Research Council's Executive Vice President and former Delta Force commander, and Travis Weber, Esq., Director of FRC's Center for Religious Liberty, a former naval aviator and graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, will attend oral argument before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces in the case of United States v. Sterling.
In this case, the court will decide whether the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) protects a Marine lance corporal's decision to post scripture verses at her workstation. The lance corporal desired to post the verses to give her inspiration and strength, but military superiors ordered her to remove the verses she posted. A lower court refused to protect her religious expression, interpreting RFRA in a constrained manner to protect only certain types of religious exercise. FRC and numerous other religious freedom advocates are urging the court to overturn this harmful decision.
Lt. General Boykin commented on the case:

Europe Under Siege
Europe Under Siege
To understand why many in Great Britain might want out of the European Union, just consider the chaos caused by the current wave of Muslim migration that is sweeping the continent. Conservatives have been warning that Europe's lax immigration system was being exploited by ISIS. In fact, ISIS has bragged about it.
Now even the Washington Post is belatedly acknowledging reality. In a front-page story this weekend, the Post retraces the steps of four ISIS terrorists, two of whom were involved in the deadly Paris attacks.
Europe's experience is relevant to the United States, especially given Barack Obama's intention to bring in more Syrian refugees, virtually all of whom are Muslims.
Justice Arthur Goldberg famously wrote that the Constitution "is not a suicide pact." Compassion is not a suicide pact either. In a time of war, which we are in, compassion untempered by rationality leads to death. Sadly, too many elites in the West continue to stick their heads in the sand. (Gary Bauer)
A Word for our Pastors
A Word for our Pastors . . . Spoken in the Love of our Messiah . . .
REPENTANCE PREACHING IN OUR CONGREGATIONS
Every true leader must fearlessly declare the gospel and power of the Blood of Jesus Christ. Pastors too "fall out of love" with their ministries and "out of love" with their First Love. It is not the politicians who are accountable for the soul of our nation. It is the pastors who are called and anointed to confront their congregations with the Holy One of Israel.
We must call for fearless voices to cut through the selfish unbelief of a tired remnant and the apostate majority. The prophet Haggai declared the Word of the Lord, "Consider your ways".
We need fiery preachers preaching: "Repent!" "Do not refuse Him that speaks. Let us serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear; for our God is a consuming fire" (Heb. 12:29b).
Throughout history, after a powerful visitation of the Lord, over and over mankind backslides into a lukewarm life style. The Lord then sends prophets to pierce the ironclad culture of a people who are determined to preserve the cultures of their unredeemed lifestyle.
The Word and design of God remains unchanged. We as pastors must challenge the people to desire what God desires. If we are to do this, then we, too, must have an undivided heart completely devoted to the Lord. God's people become easily swayed by temporal prosperity, selfish ambition, vain glory, vanity of religion, prominence, complacency and pre-eminence.
Our generation has received an apostolic call to a work of faith in the face of adversity (1 Cor. 15:58).
National adversity is generally due to national disobedience to God.
Hag. 2:14: "Then answered Haggai, and said, so is this people, and so is this nation before Me, says the Lord; and so is every work of their hands; and that which they offer there is unclean."
Here is a whole people, a whole race, the Lord says, who are defiled under My scrutiny.
The day of shaking is upon us! Everything is shifting into a higher gear. All of our spiritual instincts sense that something is about to happen!
Heb. 12: 25-26: "See that you do not refuse Him that speaks, For if they did not escape who refused him that spoke on earth, how much more shall we not escape, if we turn away from Him who speaks from heaven: Whose voice then shook the earth; but now He has promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven."
The shaking of all things brings the glory of the Lord! God filled his house with glory in Exodus 40; 1 Kings 8 and Second Chronicles 5. He comes suddenly to His temple in Malachi 3. Jesus Christ, the King and Lord of glory, is the ultimate house filled with the glory of Jehovah's name and nature.
Jn. 1:14: "The Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us. We have seen His glory, the glory of the One and Only . . ." (Read entire sermon here.)

Update: National Day of Repentance (I)
Update: National Day of Repentance - Part One*
Thoughts on Repentance April 30, 2016
Support for America's grassroots National Day of Repentance on Saturday, April 30, 2016, is coming from pastors and prayer leaders in Australia, France, Kenya, Malawi and New Zealand. It's a sign that we believers in Jesus Christ are being unified through personal and national repentance as "one body and one Spirit, just as you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all." [Ephesians 4:4-6].
Unity in the body of Christ is vital since we are in a mighty spiritual battle against principalities and powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. [Ephesians 6:12]. In every nation with Judeo-Christian roots we are seeing the anti-Christ spirit of rebellion using those who don't know the Lord to flaunt the truths of the Bible, to push for killing the innocent, to normalize sexual perversions, to boycott Israel, to place one's self as god.
Like Nehemiah we are in a battle: "Do not be afraid of them. Remember the Lord, great and awesome, and fight for your brethren, your sons, your daughters, your wives, and your houses." [Nehemiah 4:14]
But now the battle is not yet so much a physical battle as a spiritual battle, best approached on our knees in repentance to the Risen Christ through His Holy Spirit. [Revelation 3:19-21].
In humble prayer, in deep sadness, in Holy Spirit conviction we each have the choice to repent personally to re-focus on God, to follow more zealously God's path of purity, fearing Him more than man. Turning from our wicked ways God then will hear from heaven, forgive our sin and heal our lands. When we admit we don't know what to do, and turn our eyes upon Him in repentance, the battle is not ours, but God's. [2 Chronicles 20:15]

Muslims in Uganda Kill Christians' Livestock, Demolish Church Building
NAIROBI, Kenya (Morning Star News) - Muslims in a village in eastern Uganda last week killed Christians' pigs and tore down their church building, sources said.
A Muslim mob demolished the building of the 450-member Nalugondo Church of Uganda building at about midnight on April 12, shouting, "We cannot live together with neighbors who are infidels. We have to fight for the cause of Allah," according to area sources. Nalugondo village is near Bugade, Mayuge District, 93 miles east of Kampala.
Songs Our Grandmothers Sang:
NOTHING BUT THE BLOOD
"Without the shedding of blood there is no remission of sin." (Hebrews 9:22)
What can wash away my sin? Nothing but the blood of Jesus; What can make me whole again? Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
Oh! precious is the flow
That makes me white as snow;
No other fount I know,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
For my pardon, this I see, Nothing but the blood of Jesus; For my cleansing this my plea, Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
Nothing can for sin atone, Nothing but the blood of Jesus; Naught of good that I have done, Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
This is all my hope and peace, Nothing but the blood of Jesus; This is all my righteousness, Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
Now by this I'll overcome- Nothing but the blood of Jesus, Now by this I'll reach my home- Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
Glory! Glory! This I sing- Nothing but the blood of Jesus, All my praise for this I bring- Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Quake hits off southern Mexico coast, no damage reported
An earthquake struck off the southern coast of Mexico early on Monday but there were no immediate reports of damage.
The quake, around 100 km (60 miles) southwest of Suchiate in the state of Chiapas, was originally registered as a magnitude 5.9 tremor by the U.S. Geological Service. It later revised that to 5.6.
Luis Felipe Puente, head of Mexico's emergency services, said via his Twitter account that the earthquake was felt lightly in parts of Chiapas. There had not yet been reports of damage, he said. (Read more)

Village in The Philippines Embraces Christianity After Hearing Gospel, Viewing 'Passion of the Christ' Film
Nearly an entire village in the Philippines embraced Christianity after hearing the Gospel and viewing the 2004 film, "The Passion of the Christ," an indigenous ministry has revealed.
According to a report from Christian Aid Mission, an organization dedicated to assisting and promoting native missionaries overseas, a local ministry spent eight months building a relationship with the Manobo tribal peoples in northern Mindanao.
During that time, mission leaders held Bible studies, teaching chronologically through the narratives of the Hebrew Scriptures to the New Testament. Men, women and children began attending these sessions and expressed a tremendous thirst for the Gospel.
"The week before presenting the gospel lesson was a week of suspense," said the director, whose name is withheld for security reasons. "Everyone was in anticipation as to what would happen to Jesus after He was arrested by the Jewish leaders. To make the teaching of the gospel that night more vivid, the teacher inserted a brief video clip of the suffering and crucifixion of Jesus from the movie, 'The Passion of Christ.'"
