What an inspiring story! (“From Bible smugglers to suppliers: EEM at 50.”) Eastern European Mission is truly fulfilling Jesus’ Great Commission.
As someone who participated in moving Bibles across borders where they were once considered contraband, I can’t express in words how thrilling it is to print them within the borders of countries where they were once outlawed. I wish that the United States had such freedoms as are described in these lines. This article tells the story of God’s faithfulness to his Word.
A righteous, God-fearing, Scripture-quoting generation is a great return on years of investment of faith, prayer and finances. I know that God is doing much more than we know about.

Churches’ dwindling support for children’s homes lamented
This just breaks my heart. (“Declining church support concerns Christian children’s homes.”) Even with the economic downturn, America is one of the richest countries in the world.
Are we losing focus on what is really important?
We can spend all the money in the world on “programs” to grow the church, but if we don’t start truly showing love to one another, especially to the children, we are not going to accomplish anything.

Another number that inspires
In response to “Numbers that inspired us.”
• 373: The number of teenagers from Tigard High School that came to the Southwest Church of Christ for our Teen Breakfast on a Tuesday morning. We serve a hot breakfast to these teens every Tuesday morning throughout the school year.
This has been a great outreach to our community.
