BBC writes… Police in eastern Ukraine have arrested a teacher accused of trying to sell a 13-year-old girl for $10,000 (£8,035). The girl was living at a boarding school in the Kharkiv region for…
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me

Our plan on this fine Sunday was a tad different than it actually turned out. I had never been in a helicopter before and got a nice view of the farms, I suppose. I have gotten good at trying to see the positive side of things. That was my feeble attempt at such.
Yesterday morning at approximately 7:45 A.M. a precious baby boy was murdered by his mother. It was legal. I won’t apologize for saying it this way. He was murdered because he carried an extra chromosome. He was 24 weeks old. He had no voice but those who begged her to let him live. He had…
