Hour 1: Entitled Kids

"Entitlement pervades nearly every aspect of today’s culture which means Christian families aren’t immune from its influence. In fact, if you aren’t proactive, it’s almost a given you’ll raise an entitled child. It’s a sobering thought."  This sobering article from Crosswalk jogged Kelli and Steve into a deep conversation. Also struggling with entitlement, we adults must correct our own habits, before we pass them to our children.

"Well done, good and faithful servant." The Nigerian pastor making national headlines for his hostage video, is with our Lord and Savior.  Boko Haram sees kidnapping as a fundraiser, but it's not slowing down Christianity.  Todd shares great news from Sudan; they had a public service outside in December.  The door is open for Christianity for the next three years!  Praise the Lord!  

Please also continue to pray for Char, Todd's wife.  She had been diagnosed with breast cancer, and we are warring for her health and protection. Please pray for strength to her lymphatic system, and next month's surgery.  We are expecting a miracle!
