Posts Coming up Next Week

Next week, posts in this blog will concentrate on the 10/40 Window. Here is a brief introduction of the so called 10/40 Window.

Most of the people groups still unreached by the gospel live in places stretching across the maps of northern Africa and Asia. Christian missions strategist Luis Bush started calling this rectangular area or band: "the 10/40 window." He used that easy-to-remember name because it lies across Africa and Asia from 10 degrees latitude north of the equator to 40 degrees latitude north of the equator.

Styles of Worship

Be reminded of what true worship is, and learn how to take the high ground, get past the battles between styles, and make lasting peace.
Who cares about style? Answer: A lot of people, but God looks at the heart.
Verse from 1 Samuel 16:7 New International Version
"The Lord does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks
at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart."
