*Christian Burmese Endure Persecution: Since a few years after the end of World War 2, the central government of Burma has attempted to eradicate several of the small ethnic groups in parts of northern Burma. Since the 1980s Burma has been controlled by a narco-military dictatorship which is the second largest supplier of opiates in the world. In 1995, Steve Gumaer founded Partners Relief and Development which is a registered charity in many countries including the United States. Partners sends missionionaries to help the hundreds of thousands of refugees in northern Thailand and over a million Internally Displaced People (or IDPs) inside Burma who have had their homes and villages destroyed and family members murdered. Several ethnic groups in northern Burma, such as the Karin and Kachin peoples, consist of a large majority of Christian thanks largely to the work of the United States' first foreign missionary Adoniram Judson whom started his work in 1812. Partners Relief is also very highly rated by the charity watch group the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA).
Today's Resource: Meet the Apostle John. He was the youngest of the Twelve. And at the time of this writing, he's now one of the last remaining. If you were an eyewitness to Christ's earthly ministry, what would concern you decades after the resurrection? From the battles that John fought we can learn lessons that will help us as we ourselves fight for the truth and battle false teaching within the church. By looking at "the things that differ," we can know what details in John's three epistles applied to the circumcision believers of his day and which of his teachings apply directly to us. Available on this 4-DVD Video Set and also in audio on MP3-CD or MP3 Download.
