Sometimes it seems as though life is just too big. We've learned of many friends with health concerns, some pretty dire by human reckoning, yet we go to our Lord and we've seen His touch in their situations. Lynn has shared two urgent prayer requests at Her Blog [click to read] and we join in those prayers. Please join in prayer for Chris Klicka and Vickie Farris.
Iran is in the headlines a lot lately as they test long range missles and their radical Muslim leadership lays down challenges to the world. But did you know that the Iranian people are not all like that. They are not Arabs, but Indo-European people. Their language is Farsi, not Arabic.
In her later years my Mother taught the physics labs at Howard Community College and one of her students was a young Iranian. The year was 1979 and this young man came to Mom's office very frightened when the revolution occurred. The clerics did not speak for him any more than the ruling party in Washington speaks for me today. Mom's friendship helped him through this difficult time.
There are many more Iranians like that young man. We can befriend them by praying for them and learning about them.
