It is regarding what I received in an e-mail, so I'll share it with you.
Here is the e-mail message I received last week, from American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) that I copied/pasted.
The expansiveness of deadly persecution of Christians across the globe is quite frankly ASTONISHING.
Recently a Christian pastor in Nigeria, Pastor Lawan, was savagely beheaded by the jihadist militia pledged to ISIS, Boko Haram.
It’s heartbreaking and at the same time, it makes my blood boil.
In the same week, other jihadists in Nigeria ruthlessly attacked a Christian village, murdering two young Christian girls. Boko Haram continues to hold Christian teen Leah Sharibu hostage, demanding she recant her faith in Jesus. It has slaughtered and displaced thousands of Christians.
It is our sacred duty to defend dying Christians.
If we don’t act, thousands of other Christians could be displaced, kidnapped, or horrifically murdered. At the ACLJ, we are engaged in our most expansive effort ever to defend Christians facing unthinkable atrocities. Today, we are submitting several written legal submissions to the United Nations, demanding action for the persecuted.
Today’s submission on Nigeria specifically urges the U.N. to “prevent acts of genocide, not merely to respond to them.” We must be the voice for our brothers and sisters in Christ.

This is heartbreaking to me.
If I was American, I could/would sign the petition., but I can't... because I am NOT American; I am Canadian.
If YOU are American... please sign that petition!
These people are so poor in life, but hopefully not in their spirit.
And hopefully, if you love God, you will do whatever you can to help those people who need help.
Thinking about that, made me think about Proverbs 14:31, "He that oppresseth the poor reproacheth his Maker: but he that honoureth him hath mercy on the poor.".
Amen! He that oppresseth the poor reproacheth his Maker: but he that honoureth him hath mercy on the poor.
Yes, if you honour God, and can help those people and/or ACLJ who are working hard to help them, please have mercy and do what you can.
If you are like me, and cannot sign that American petition, join me in prayer.
If we all pray, they will receive more mercy... and/or help.
May God bless you for helping and/or praying.
Until next time...
