Join us in celebrating with our good friends, Glenn and Carol Price on the occasion of their final adoption interview at the U.S. Embassy in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

They've found Favor. Oh yes!! With God and man and everyone who knows them in the person of a precious six year old Ethiopian girl whose name is Favor.  Is that just perfect or what?

This is one of those moments when God blesses those who watch and pray with the joy of sharing in what's being experienced this very moment in Ethiopia.

When Favor was only 20 days ...

The Universal Language Called Love & Mercy

I was shocked when I searched for "Mercy Ships®" in Google Trends, a search utility providing interesting information of different words searched globally.  I expected for the majority of the searches made for "Mercy Ships®" to be in theWater United States, but I was wrong!  The United States ranked 9th, behind countries like South Africa (1st), New Zealand (2nd) and Netherlands (3rd). 

As I looked at the rankings, I realized just how small my world was, and how I assumed everyone else had to fit into my tiny perspective! Of course Mercy Ships® has an international ...

1/Facebook's a place people exchange fun pleasantries about where they're eating lunch, or who they just ran into. (Ooops, confusing Facebook with Twitter!)

2/mothers/dads keeping track of their offspring without appearing too controlling! (I'm all for it, but I'm not a parent.)

3/grandmothers wanting to hear from their grandchildren and EXCEPT for Facebook never hear or see enough of them. (Girl, you go for it ...

We love getting the scoop straight from  Michael Certalic, Ministry Director for Telling the Truth.  It was a great day to hear about exciting ministry news and its impact to Christian radio listeners. 

For example:

  • Did you know Stuart Briscoe turns 80 next year?
  • Did you know Pete Briscoe just returned for a 3-month sabbatical?
  • Did you know Jill's latest book Faith Dancing just came out?
  • Did you know you that, as of this morning, Telling the Truth has 1,586 Facebook fans?

Well, now you know!

All-Encompassing World-View

You've probably heard about the recent launch of "The Colson Center" by Prison Fellowship. I've been looking forward to this for quite a while, having a personal passion for apologetics and seeing Christians trained in world-view thinking.

Chuck Colson recently shared with your listeners about this project. It's an amazing site combining everything for a strong world-view training. There are articles, commentary, a "Worldview Gym," and eventually there is going to be classes and even a worldview bookstore.

I'm sure you can think of a project you've done that is just so close to your ...
