A couple of weeks ago, my friends and I were praying diligently for a member of our church and house church. He and a team of doctors were in Haiti and the situation in Haiti became extremely volatile. There was country-wide unrest and chaos.
Did you know about that? You wouldn’t hear about it from any of the mainstream media, even the 24/7 news channels. America has the most self-focused news in the world and we are often completely oblivious to what is really happening around the world.
I want to point you to a really great resource that I’ve known about for a while but my daughter Shelby recently reminded me of: it is Justin Long’s “Weekly Roundup.” Justin Long is part of the Beyond mission’s agency and he specializes in global research, with particular attention to things that would effect missionaries around the world.
You can subscribe to his “Weekly Roundup” and you’ll get an e-mail each week full of great information about God’s world! Check it out here: https://www.justinlong.org/roundup
