Hurricane Michael was a once-in-a-lifetime weather disaster. Not only was it the first "Category 4" ever to hit the Florida panhandle, it also was the most powerful October storm in U.S. history. At 155 mph, Michael's wind speeds were just two mph short of a "Category 5" storm!Read more
The impact of Hurricane Michael is truly catastrophic and immense in scope. Images from shattered communities along the Florida panhandle and further north are both shocking and heartbreaking. Liberty Relief International has paused our overseas outreach to help victims of this deadly and destructive Category 4 storm. Please click here to make a tax-deductible donation of any amount.

Countless persecuted believers around the world are praying for a copy of God's Word to encourage and strengthen them in their faith. Recently, I received the update below from a Christ-centered partner highlighting the critical need for discipleship resources in the Middle East and elsewhere:
"(I)n many parts of the world, the most dangerous book is the Bible. Yet believers are risking everything to possess a copy of God's Word and share this treasure with others. Getting a copy of the Bible is difficult, and watching eyes are everywhere. … Our brothers and sisters live in some of the most difficult places in the world to follow Jesus, but you can help refresh them spiritually in their time of need."

One of our Christ-centered partners working in East Africa is asking for prayer after deadly attacks on a Christian college in South Sudan. They are requesting specific prayer for injured and traumatized survivors, as well as for the families of those murdered by soldiers from the Sudan People's Liberation Army.Read more
I recently received a shocking and disturbing email about fellow believers who recently came under attack in South Sudan. Soldiers from the Sudan People's Liberation Army raided a Christian college and began breaking doors and windows. They forced their way into houses and looted the compound. Two of them raped the 14-year-old daughter of a staff member.
Later that day at a nearby primary school, the same group of soldiers killed five school children, three staff members and two other people. But the horror didn't end there. Our Christ-centered partner in the region reports:Read more
The statistic is alarming, which is why I feel led to share it with you again today.

Three out of four reject Christ within the first year!Read more
