In What to do parts 1 and 2 we discussed ways to prepare yourself to take action in changing the condition of our nation. Self-examination, relationship with Christ, seeking the guidance of the Holy Spirit, educating yourself, preparing for battle, not becoming offended, and prayer are all steps in getting ready to take action. I can already hear many people saying, "Bill, we have done all that, get to the point." I must say that after being in the arena, first in journalism, then in politics, then business and now ministry, there is no substitute for preparation. You have got to know who you are, what you are trying to accomplish, and who is leading you otherwise you are setting yourself up for failure. Now let's look at practical ways to act.
In Ephesians 6:20, the Apostle Paul prays, "that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak." This nation has been on a spiritual and moral decline for decades. It is not going to be fixed over night. We are going to have to do the painstaking task of heart to heart combat-changing hearts by our words and deeds. When we hear injustice, we need to speak about it and point it out-not in an offensive way because that would be just like those committing the injustice-in ways that are factual, in love and in truth. This needs to start in your family and expand out like the ripple a rock makes when you throw it in a pond. Look for opportunities to bring common sense to others that may make them think about the idiocy they are promoting.
Another way is to organize and take part in civil disobedience.  In October 2013, the World War II vets were so frustrated with the occupant of the Oval Office shutting down the Memorials that they stormed them. With a little help from some politicians and younger vets, they went in their walkers and wheel chairs and on foot and took down the barriers. They toured the memorials and then took the barriers over to the White House where they left them in front of officers dressed in riot gear. This is an example of what we need in this country. We need people who will go to the streets and start opposing the unconstitutional and disrespectful acts of the usurpers. They felt they had nothing to lose. 
Until Americans feel they have nothing to lose except the freedom the government is taking away, we probably will not see an end to this tyranny. The price of freedom is great. Doing what we are commanded by the Holy Scriptures, making disciples, standing on the righteousness of Christ, overcoming evil with good are all things we can do to change things for the better. Don't be political, be practical. Don't be symbolic, be sensible. Don't be emotional, be experiential. And having done all, stand. Trouble is, we are a long ways from having done all. In looking at what can be done politically to change the nation, there is a model that we can follow that is working today. Next Jot. Stay tuned for What to do Part 4.
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!

An Appeal for the Children Suffering in Mozambique

By Pastor William Agbeti

[NOTE: If you choose to support the relief efforts of Pastor William Agbeti for the children impacted by the cyclone in Mozambique, please just note "Mozambique" in your donation notation or on your check. ]

I am weeping right now for the devastation that children in Mozambique are caught up in! I am therefore sending an appeal to readers and supporters  to consider sending immediate help for children in Mozambique affected by cyclone Idai. 

Below is the plea for help:

Everyone might have by now heard of the devastation caused by cyclone Idai in Mozambique. Several 100s are dead and rendered homeless. Whole communities, including children, women and the elderly are without food and essential needs like water.Children are dying as a result and the nation has declared a s tate of emergency. 
Nearby Ghana, children in Mozambique are suffering from the impact of a cyclone that is predicted to have claimed over 1,000 lives

The hardest thing to bear is that all these things are happening right in our backyard. 

We hear the cries and pleas for help and cannot close our eyes and stop our ears to them.In the wake of all this, we cannot remain silent because the cries for help have become loudest of late.  We are therefore also calling for help in order to help affected children in Mozambique. 

This is our very first attempt at international outreach. 

I plan on leaving for the affected areas in a week, on an emergency errand.  Even if we are able to save a few children from starvation or death, that would be a lot accomplished in the name of the Lord! My plans are to stay for a week only in Mozambique, and distribute essential commodities and medications recommended by doctors in Ghana, with documented approval. 

My budget is $5000, including travel costs and essential items. Close to $4000 of this amount will go directly to help the children! Please extend a helping hand! I will be sending direct reports from the field, should conditions permit. Please send help now! 

God richly bless you for allowing Him to touch and turn your hearts towards children in Mozambique.

NOTE: In case we are unable to raise the target amount, the entire funds raised will be sent to the Mozambique consulate in Ghana, with specific instructions to help children with it!
