This Cartoon Crosses The Line

[Click on image to enlarge it.]

This cartoon is from the Washington Post. It is a cartoon of Sarah Palin speaking in tounges at a podium and God's basic response is a curse word and him saying that He can't understand.
This is disturbing to many Christians. Pentecostals and non-Pentecostals need to speak up.

Today's Report From Missionary John Doroshuk in the Country of Georgia - 9-19-08

Today we went to the outdoor market and bought several boxes of fresh tomatoes and grapes. These were then packaged and we distributed them to 28 families. These people have not tasted a fresh tomato for over one month. They received the tomatoes and grapes as though we were giving them some gold.

The Georgian people are a very meek people. After being in contact with several hundred of them throughout the week, I am amazed that I have not heard one of them rant and rage against the invasion or the Russians.

However, their stories are heart breaking. Most of those in the refugee camps do not have a home to return to. Entire villages of up to one thousand people has been laid totally wasted without one home intact. Some of them will never be able to return to their homes. They will have to start over in some other place.

Thank you so much for your love and prayers. Yes, we need to keep the situation in Georgia covered with prayers as only God knows how things will end up.

Thanks again for your love and prayers. This truly is the time to have part in, "I was hungry and you fed me, I was thirsty and you gave me to drink, I was naked and you clothed me, Sick and in prison and you visited, me ..."

Thank God for you and the saints who are literally fulfilling the words of Jesus. Be blessed with love and grace.

Brother John

Missionary John Doroshuk Reports From the Country of Georgia

Yesterday was a very full day. We were at one refugee camp and two refugee centers. I fought back tears most of the day as we listened to the tragic stories.
One young mother with three children still does not know where her husband is. Another young mother with four children last saw her husband as he went to work in the morning on the 7th of August.
One elderly couple fled for 8 days on a small farm tractor through forest, mountain paths and fields to get away from the Russian front. They have received word that their house, barn and fields have been completely destroyed.
A little boy slept with a coat as a covering. We bought him his own blanket.
We were able to help 37 families with fruit and vegetables as well as some daily necessities.
Some or most of these people have not even seen an apple since the war. One little boy, before he ate his apple, put some apples on a small plate and wanted to share them with us.
These people are worried about what is going to happen when winter comes. Those in the tent city are already cold at night as it is located close to the mountains. They are all begging for warmer bedding and of course for winter clothing and footwear.
Then there is the great concern of what will it be like when and if they can return to their homes. They will need funds to restore their homes, at least walls, roof, windows and doors.
There are so many young mothers with babies with only a little water and a small wash basin to do all of the laundry. Pampers would be a God send to them.
