A Recession is the least of some people’s worries.

Our Retirement accounts are hurting. We can’t buy the new boat we were planning on. We have had to move because we lost our job.

These are tough times for us, but nothing compared to what other people are going through on the other side of this planet. In Kenya there is a group of people referred to as the Maasai – a tribal culture, that John Shepherd of Calvary Road Ministries has been ministering to for 10 years. Their land is in a historical drought. Not the “don’t water your lawn this month” kind of drought, but a livestock and people killing drought.

It is so serious that Calvary Road Ministries is raising $65,000 to feed 18-22 thousand people for 1 month. I know John, and his ministry – they are going to do everything they can to help these people spiritually and physically. Will you help them?

Our help is needed. This isn’t hype – it’s life or death for these people. If you want to learn more about the drought, the people, and how you can donate, please visit http://www.calvaryroad.com/.

  1. THE BIBLIE AND THE DEPRESSION “Then cometh Jesus with then unto a place called Gethsemane, and saith unto the disciples. Sit ye here, while I go and pray yonder.And he took with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and began to be sorrowful and very heavy.Then saith he unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with me.” (Matthew 26,36-38) I think depression is one of the most tragic of which passes through the soul of a person, and because it disfigures the depression self-esteem, self, a sense of transcendence, and other qualities that make man the biggest creations of God. It is an evil that seeks to dispel that image that God placed in us.In the Bible there are cases of people like Abraham, Moses, King David, the prophet Jeremiah, the prophet Jonah, the Old Testament and New Testament in the case of the apostle Peter and Paul, and even of the Lord Jesus Christ through times of depression.Sin however I just want to refer to the text of Matthew 26,36-46 in showing that the Lord Jesus at the Garden of Gethsemane with his disciples, suffered a great depression because they experience a profound sadness and a mortal agony. The Lord Jesus looms the intense suffering that was going to experiment until his death at the hands of the Jews, so they turned to the Lord for a prayer that she can regain the strength and peace I needed to face their prueba.Siendo that the Lord your face depression as any man and found out to them in prayer, this may be a good choice whether you are taking medications as therapy or as an act of faith to level the emotions that are found in our hectic hearts

  2. Okay, great…..now I can’t get that song “Why Can’t We Be Friends?” out of my head! 🙂 Great info about the Calvary Road Ministries! Makes whatever we go through seem so trivial, doesn’t it? (And I LOVED the comment about sleeping like a baby! I hadn’t thought of it that way before!)
