The Seed Company is one of the best Bible translation organizations, and the one most heavily supported by EPM. This year, they’re celebrating the beginning of their 1,000th language translation. Cumulatively these translations have helped to bring God’s Word to more than a billion people!

If you follow world news, perhaps you’re aware of the deplorable conditions in South Sudan over the past couple of months, when conflict between the president and the former deputy president unraveled into a senseless blood bath of ethnic violence. The conditions in South Sudan go from worse to better and back again, and even at their best are heart-breaking.

God has a special love for children and desires for children of all cultures and nationalities to come into a relationship with Him through Christ. What a privilege to share this Good News with them! That’s why I’m excited about “The Story of Jesus Through the Eyes of Children” DVD from my friends at the JESUS Film Project.

Black Friday. Small Business Saturday. Cyber Monday. What’s next? Fire-sale Sunday? It seems like every year there’s a new “specially designated” day to promote Christmas spending.
I want to say something about the growing “Giving Tuesday” movement (yes, yet another new day, but this one with a higher purpose). It’s the philanthropic community’s response to the consumerism of Black Friday and Cyber Monday and is designed to provide people with a charitable day to consider giving as they go into the holiday season.
I especially loved the video included in this blog because EPM has a heart for seeing prisoners come to Christ and grow in their faith. By God’s grace we are now sending out an average of 679 books each month to inmates and chapel libraries. (EPM staff member Sharon Misenhimer sends ministry information and/or books to over 300 prisoners each month. It’s a busy job!)

The problem of human slavery, with at least 30 million known victims in the world today, is a staggering one. There are many organizations and people around the world who are dedicated to fighting this injustice, and this is good. However, you may not be aware of the ways that you personally can help contribute to this fight.

Many years ago I read Peace Child by Don Richardson. This great missions story had a strong impact on my life, demonstrating the power of the gospel in a primitive culture.

I watched this video and was deeply touched by the happy outcome, and you will be too. It captures why we support the International Justice Mission.
