Unique Room Sparks Renewed Interest in Prayer

Sonya Osborne of Antigua writes: I praise God for what you have done. For a long time now I have thought of building a prayer room. I live in Antigua in the Caribbean, but am from Guyana. Two months ago I visited my country and saw the many prayer rooms which the Hindus had built in their yards for their gods. It continued to trouble me. I pray God that when I erect my own home, as I am trusting him to do, that I would also erect a prayer room, an oasis in the community for us all.

Andersons Receive Irving C. Lambert Award

Annette Anderson of Tulare, CA, writes: Wow, I just Googled my name and found many “Annette Andersons.” The weird part is in the similarities. I was also married to someone named Jim Anderson. I am a registered nurse in pediatrics. And I am a follower of Christ. I was born in 1966 in California. Strange to have the same name . . . even stranger to share professions and beliefs. The “Jim” part doesn’t surprise me, though. In (my) Jim’s family, all male children are named James – four generations that I know of so far. God bless and have a great day. If you could pass this along, I would love to say hi to the Andersons.

Vision for Detroit Ministry Fast Becoming Reality

Harriett Henderson of Forest Park, IL, writes: I am grateful for the news story regarding Rev. Care’s departure from Salem Baptist Church. I always knew that God would bless Rev. Carey with his own church, but little did I know; it would be so far away, but I truly understand. Rev. Carey, you are truly missed – and Detroit, Michigan, you have truly received a MAN OF GOD! May God continue to bless and keep you and your lovely family.
