The Christians in Lebanon

We pledged to help feed 60 Christian families in Lebanon after the explosion in Beirut earlier this year. Many of these families are refugees fleeing persecution in Syria. Having passed our goal, we can feed even more families with your help!

Pakistan Kidnapping Nightmare

Last month I reported on Maria Shahbaz, a 14-year-old Christian girl in Pakistan who was abducted and forced to “marry” a Muslim man. This is not an isolated case! Huma Younus is another Christian Pakistani girl who was kidnapped, forcefully converted to Islam and then made to marry her abductor this year.

Remembering 9-11

Each of us will remember exactly where we were and what we were doing at the moment we heard about the Islamic Jihad attack against our nation on September 11th. On that fateful day I was on my way to Washington, DC to participate in the Sudan Peace Act press conference to be held at the Rayburn House Office Building at 10:00 a.m. that morning.

Horror in Lebanon

The horrific explosion in Beirut occurred in a predominantly Christian area. Many churches were destroyed or damaged. It is our duty to help our Christian brothers and sisters in their time of need in Lebanon. I pray we can help repair the school and assist with food for the poorest.
