Survey Results About 60% of Daily Jot readers preferred the old format. Roughly 30% preferred the new format. Most comments were strongly against the new format. Those comments supporting the new format were largely receptive either way. So we are returning to the old format with an encouragement to visit the website from time to time to see what the ministry is doing! Thank you for responding to the survey.

According to an analysis of 2014 Census Bureau data, the American taxpayer is footing the bill for non-citizens to live in the US.  The Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), an independent, non-partisan, non-profit, research organization, reports 63% of households headed by a non-citizen used at least one welfare program in 2014, compared to 35% of native-headed households. CIS also found in the Census data that compared to native households, non-citizen households have much higher use of food programs (45% vs 21% respectively) and Medicaid (50% vs 23% respectively).  Some 31% of non-citizen headed households receive cash welfare. 
CIS reports, " While most new legal immigrants (green card holders) are barred from most welfare programs, as are illegal immigrants and temporary visitors, these provisions have only a modest impact on non-citizen household use rates because: 1) most legal immigrants have been in the country long enough to qualify; 2) the bar does not apply to all programs, nor does it always apply to non-citizen children; 3) some states provide welfare to new immigrants on their own; and, most importantly, 4) non-citizens (including illegal immigrants) can receive benefits on behalf of their U.S.-born children who are awarded U.S. citizenship and full welfare eligibility at birth." CIS says some 50% of households headed by naturalized immigrants (US citizens) are on welfare. 
The Census report indicates there are 4.68 million non-citizen households receiving welfare. These statistics may well be much lower than actual non-citizen use of welfare. During the previous Administration, steps were taken to make it more difficult to identify illegal immigrants' use of welfare programs. CIS reports: "However, we do know that about half of non-citizens in Census Bureau data are illegal immigrants, which we would expect to make welfare use for non-citizens in general low, as those in the country without authorization are barred from almost all federal welfare programs...this report shows that welfare use by households headed by illegal immigrants must be significant for the overall rate of welfare use among non-citizens to look as it does in this report."
The Bible is very clear about how to handle immigrants. Exodus 22:21 says, "You shall neither vex a stranger, nor oppress him." In context, Exodus 12:49 says, "One law shall be to him that is home-born, and unto the foreigner who sojourns among you." These themes are repeated in Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy.One law for all. If they are here illegally, they have broken the law as their first act. I t is illegal for illegals to receive welfare, but millions are on welfare. The same holds true for voting.  We have no recourse but to pay our taxes and non-citizens are receiving both the benefits of citizenship and those of wealth redistribution (socialism). Those who oppose this lawlessness, are labeled racists and xenophobes. Can you discern the agenda?

Caring for those even the Church ignores: 
The Disabled in Ghana

By Pastor William Agbeti

[ NOTE: In addition to our ongoing clean water, feeding, and clothing efforts when you support The Daily Jot, you are helping wipe tears off the faces of suffering mothers and fathers seeking rehabilitation of their disabled children]
UN figures put persons living with disabilities in the world at 20% of the global population. 80% of this number can be found in developing countries. In Ghana alone, there are some 3 million persons living with various forms of disabilities. 
Our Ghana ministry serves where others will not.This two-day residential program for children with disabilities provide food, clothing and recreation

Their plight is demoralizing. Many in the Ghanaian society consider them taboos. Scores of local churches have not opened their doors to them. Several families neglect their disabled children, to fend for themselves. Sadly, some communities go to the extreme to put a newly born disabled child into a mortar and use a pestle to pound it to death, with the belief that their souls will not return to the communities again. In the main, the disabled are ostracized from the society. Only a handful of homes, families and communities treat them with a modicum of respect and acceptance. Read the rest of the story by clicking here
