Habitat for Humanity Builds — World Wide

journey through the desert

I have often volunteered for habitat for humanity and found it to be a great use of ones time by putting action toward ones prayer, in Jesus name. As believers in Jesus we must pray, fast, and read scriptures, but we must also be doers of the word of God.

This is one out of many volunteer opportunities one could take, but I think it is especially important for those praying for the Lord to make a home available for them, to help others build theirs.

Habitat for Humanity International was founded in 1976 by Millard and Linda Fuller. Today, Habitat for Humanity is a true world leader in addressing the issues of poverty housing.

Koinonia Farm 
The concept that grew into Habitat for Humanity International was born at Koinonia Farm, a small, interracial, Christian community outside of Americus, Georgia. Koinonia Farm was founded in 1942 by farmer and biblical scholar Clarence Jordan.

The Fullers first visited Koinonia in 1965. They had recently left a successful business and an affluent lifestyle in Montgomery, Alabama to begin a new life of Christian service.

At Koinonia, Jordan and Fuller developed the concept of “partnership housing.” The concept centered on those in need of adequate shelter working side by side with volunteers to build simple, decent houses.

Alleged Racist Mortgage Policies

journey through the desert

Behold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth (James 5:4).

Make this your cry. Pray to the Lord. That his will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Our (believers in Jesus) wrestle is with spiritual wickedness that require spiritual prayer for God to move on your behalf. Pray specifically about what needs to be accomplished on earth.

Banks have been “redlining” black neighborhoods — highlighting black neighborhoods to avoid — since at least 1934, when the racist policy was codified into federal law. It is now illegal under the Fair Housing Act.

The Evans case is expected to be the first of several lawsuits against other banks, according to the Times. Evans is also one of several banks recently accused of using the practice in the past few years.

In 2011, Countrywide Financial, which financed 20 percent of all U.S. mortgages in 2006, agreed to pay $335 million to settle allegations that it discriminated against black and Latino borrowers during a four-year period that led up to the financial crisis. A year later, Wells Fargo settled similar accusations by agreeing to pay out at least $175 million. JPMorgan Chase got a lawsuit dismissed last month that accused the country’s largest bank by assets of both denying loans based on race and steering minority borrowers toward mortgages they could not afford, a predatory practice known as “reverse redlining.”

“Redlining is illegal, discriminatory, and must be made a thing of the past, once and for all,” Schneiderman said in a statement on Tuesday. “It is crucial that all New Yorkers, regardless of the color of their skin or the racial composition of their neighborhood, be afforded an equal opportunity to obtain credit.”

Nurse Accused Of Killing 38 Patients She Found Annoying

journey through the desert

If you’re one to struggle on things to pray for. Remember this story and how important it is to pray for love ones visiting the medical facility. We need Jesus protecting us at every corner. Now what spirit do you suppose was behind her on this?

In all thy ways acknowledge Jesus, and he shall direct thy paths (Proverbs 3:6).

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God (Philippians 4:6).

Also, using a Christian chaplain at the hospital, if there is one is not a bad idea.

A nurse in Italy is accused of killing 38 patients because she thought they were “annoying.”

Daniela Poggiali was arrested Friday on murder charges, Italian newspaper Corriere di Bologna reports. The 42-year-old nurse caught the attention of authorities after theApril death of 78-year-old Rosa Calderoni, according to the Independent’s translation of Italian newspaper Libero Quotidiano.

Calderoni was admitted to a hospital in the town of Lugo with a diabetes-related ailment, and died from what officials believe was a fatal injection of potassium chloride. Prosecutors say that their investigation is more difficult because potassium chloride fades from the bloodstream within a couple days, making it hard to detect.

Calderoni’s death occurred while Poggiali was on duty, and the resulting investigation found that 37 other patients also died mysteriously on her watch. Authorities now suspect that Poggiali may have killed them all because she thought that they or their families were irritating.

Toys ‘R Us drop ‘Breaking Bad’

journey through the desert

Susan Schrivjer, a mother from Fort Myers, launched a petition in early October to have White — and other “Breaking Bad” action figures — removed from Toys R Us. Her petition — titled “Remove Breaking Bad dolls from their shelves” — has gained 3,884 supporters.

“Toys R Us is well known around the world for their vast selection of toys for children of all ages,” she wrote. “However their decision to sell a Breaking Bad doll, complete with a detachable sack of cash and a bag of meth, alongside children’s toys is a dangerous deviation from their family friendly values.”

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: – 1 Peter 5:8

And following Jesus was a large crowd of the people, and of women who were mourning and lamenting Him. But Jesus turning to them said, “Daughters of Jerusalem, stop weeping for Me, but weep for yourselves and for your children. “For behold, the days are coming when they will say, ‘Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bore, and the breasts that never nursed.’ – Luke 23:27-29

Invest in the Kingdom of Heaven

journey through the desertYour heart is found where your treasure lay. What you choose to invest in will determine your final resting place. The kingdom of heaven is prepared for those who love Jesus and his words. They eat them for breakfast and dinner. These will walk with the Lord in white garments.

The battle given to mankind is treacherous and Christians are outnumbered by imposters. The growing number of deceptors abound and those who preach the right gospel are lied on, similar to Jesus accusers before he was placed on the cross.

The battle has been fixed and the winners will win, but unfortunately it will look as though we have lost. Similar to Jesus death on the cross, is our victory in his resurrection. Nonetheless, the cross is necessary for our salvation.

Let us be ever vigilant with the time and pray. Perhaps, this is not the final hour and revival awaits to spring again. We must take seriously the commands of Jesus or we shall suffer when his wrath pours upon the earth like fire.

Gender Confusion Initiative

Journey through the Desert

Welcome to the twilight zone. You are no longer defined as male and female, but ale’s. You will share the same bathroom and you will wear the same clothing. There will be no difference between individual genders. Let gender confusion begin.

Saints of God pray for your school distract teachers and superintendents. Do not let up on prayer. Pray every single day. Who knows whether or not God will send revival or this is the last stand for Christians, before prison, enslavement, and beatings.

The fine folks who run the school system in Lincoln, Neb., are on a campaign to make their classrooms gender-inclusive. And that means teachers will no longer refer to boys and girls … as boys and girls.

“Don’t use phrases such as ‘boys and girls,’ ‘you guys,’ ‘ladies and gentlemen,’ and similarly gendered expressions to get kids’ attention,” reads a handout from the Lincoln Public Schools that was given to teachers.

The handout was part of an effort to educate teachers and administrators about transgender issues, educators told the Lincoln Journal Star.

So instead of asking boys and girls to line up as boys or girls, teachers have been encouraged to segregate the children by whether they prefer skateboards or bikes, or whether they like milk or juice.

“The agenda we’re promoting is to help all kids succeed,” Brenda Leggiardo the district’s coordinator of social workers and counselors told the newspaper. “We have kids who come to us with a whole variety of circumstances, and we need to equitably serve all kids.”
