In What to do Part 3, I promised to give you a very successful model that is working today to change America. Armed with scriptures like Deuteronomy 30:19, "I call heaven and earth as witness this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live," a group of people have put away their religious differences to save lives across America. The pro-life movement has made a bigger difference in the past couple of decades than any other organized religious or political group. Their collaboration, tenacity, perseverance, and commitment to God and to life is changing this country. It is a model to follow. 
Think about this--in 1973 the Supreme Court ruled to legalize abortion. In 46 years, no one has been able to overturn that decision. But pro-life forces have prayed and acted until 2019 where the Planned Parenthood abortion mill is being defunded by government; 14 states such as Alabama, Ohio, Kentucky, Mississippi, and Georgia have various forms of abortion bans.  Six-week bans have also moved in Missouri and Tennessee legislatures, and have been introduced in Florida, Illinois, Louisiana, Maryland, Minnesota, New York, South Carolina and West Virginia. The pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute reports: " Banning abortion at six weeks has emerged as a leading tactic for antiabortion politicians and activists, with the ultimate goal of challenging Roe v Wade at the U.S. Supreme Court." 'Bama took it beyond that! 
During the past decade, prospective mothers may be making better life-death choices. According to the Centers for Disease Control,  the total number of reported abortions decreased 24% over the period of 2006-2015, and abortions among women aged 15-19 decreased 41% during the same period. This is all because the pro-life movement, faced with tremendous odds, hatred, even jail time, endured over a 46 year period to make these gains. It took prayer, organization, commitment, patience, and tenacity to just get to this point. This movement, however, is making tremendous progress because it will not and has not given up. Its soldiers work with those who are like-minded and motivated, putting religious and political differences aside. Who would have thought that Alabama would essentially ban abortion and hold doctors accountable?
This is an example of how to change culture. But remember that it has taken nearly half a century and the goal is still not reached. Many people have come and gone, died without seeing the victory. But they were committed. It is going to take the same type of godly commitment and resolve to rid America of the immoral neo-communists who openly hate those who disagree with them as they attempt to remake America into a graven image of satan. America did not get into this position overnight. And it will take a long time to reverse the trend because this is a foundational issue of reeducating our children, changing the emphasis and relevance of the church, organizing politically, and electing good people to office. It's a tall order, and it's hard work, but you asked "what to do?" It starts with taking the first step. Prepare, educate, speak, act.
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!
