Malaysia Charges 3 Over Church Attacks
Posted: 29 January 2010 1939 hrs

KUALA LUMPUR : Malaysia said Friday it has charged three men over a church firebombing, the first suspects to be indicted following a spate of attacks on places of worship that have escalated ethnic tension.

Deputy public prosecutor Anselm Charles Fernandis told AFP charges were filed against three dispatch riders for setting alight the Metro Tabernacle Church in a southern suburb of Kuala Lumpur on January 8.

"The three have been charged with causing mischief by fire by burning the building in which the church was located and all three pleaded not guilty," he said.

The men -- named as Azuwan Shah Ahmad and brothers Raja Mohamad Faizal Raja Ibrahim and Raja Mohamad Idzham -- face up to 20 years in jail if convicted.

They are among 19 arrested over attacks on 11 churches, a mosque and two Muslim prayer halls.

Dear Prayer partners in the lord,

I first of all would like to greet you all in His name.

I have a very urgent prayer request,that is, about our missionary

Winbo. God gave a privilege of winning lost souls to our missionary

Winbo and Five people were baptized based on their confession of Jesus

as lord and saviour on 24 of January 2010. At that night itself

unfortunately one of the ladies out of five was beaten by her husband

because of taking water baptism.Again on 26 night our missionary Winbo

phoned me saying another lady out of the five was beaten by her

relatives. Her husband did not say any thing. She came running to our

missionary Winbo .Her body was full of blood because of being beaten

because of believing in the lord Jesus Christ.These new believers

along with the pastor need our prayer support. They fear. They

tremble. they are treatened s…

Will You Pray For Haiti?

"Sometimes I fear the callousness of my heart must be revolting to my LORD... many disasters, so many heartaches, so much cruelty! "

With the news broadcasts, podcasts, live messaging, facebook pushes on my phone, tweets from twitter and tumblr status updates--and every other media or social network you may be connected to--I fear sometimes all the devastation, heartache and sorrow gets lost in the rush of info and we are interested in the informing of it all, but not the transforming of it all that will take place as we, God's people, pray and act as He leads us.

So...  I just wanted to remind myself and anyone else listening or reading... let's be praying that God will use this for His purposes and use us too.

Remembering It's All About Jesus Who Died For the Haitians,

While You Are Going, God Is At Work!

Reflecting on the series of posts on our missions website entitled, Hidrances to Missions In Asia, I kept thinking the answers to these hindrances must be in really understanding and applying the Great Commission. I kept thinking of the phrase ... while you are going... while you are going... while you are going! It all starts there.

I wondered if one of the biggest hindrances to missions and why many Christians are hampered is the misguided foundational thinking about who should go and really what actually is "going"?!

Is "teaching, baptizing, and discipling" in the way we were commissioned a vocation of some sort with a decision necessary: to join or not to join?

Are we mistakenly thinking that we have participated satisfactorily in the Great Commission because we are giving money regularly? Does that kind of thinking keep some of us from sending our children or going ourselves to teach, baptize or disciple?

The verses say,
19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nation…
