We Don't Work for God Henry Blackaby, author of Experiencing God, explains a fundamental principle that many Christians miss, myself included. He posed the question: "What is a servant?" Someone who works for God, right? Wrong. We don't work for God. God works through us. If we don't understand this, the fruit of our Christian lives will be extremely limited. Why? Because everything we do will depend on us—on our human capacity.

Islamic State Devastation  

As the battle continues for Mosul, the Islamic State's last major stronghold in Iraq, signs of the violence that ISIS wreaked on a nearby village remain. Since the Iraqi military began retaking Mosul on Oct. 17, 2016, more than 144,500 people have been displaced, most of them in desperate need, according to U.N. figures. A ministry based in Iraq is providing refugees in camps outside Mosul with food, clothes, medications, heaters, blankets, tents, clean water, infant formula and diapers, as well as Bibles and Christian coloring books. "We need almost everything," said the director of the ministry, which can purchase items locally. "Needs are not being met, and people are struggling. There are a lot of people and organizations helping, but it's like a drop of water in the sea."


Amazon Smile and Kroger: How a Little Can Go Along Way for Christian Aid Mission

Who doesn't shop on Amazon? But have you heard of AmazonSmile? It is a website operated by Amazon with the same selection of products and convenient shopping features as on Amazon.com. The difference is that when customers shop on AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com), Amazon donates 0.5% of the purchase price to Christian Aid Mission. All the benefits established from your Amazon account will transfer over. Bookmark the link http://smile.amazon.com/ch/52-0908482 and you can support us every time you shop.

In addition, Christian Aid has joined the Kroger Community Rewards Program! We receive a quarterly cash reward based on purchases by registered Kroger Plus members.

Christian Aid Mission is a 60-year-old non-profit organization that equips native missionaries around the world. We serve as a non-denominational foreign mission board that assists more than 500 ministries overseas with tens of thousands of indigenous or native missionaries in the field. These ministries are currently engaging more than 1,000 unreached people groups in more than 100 countries around the world. Our mission is to establish a witness for our Lord in every tribe and nation (Matthew 24:14) by assisting highly effective native missionaries and our focus is on reaching the unreached for Christ in areas in the world where there is no witness for Christ, where foreign missionaries are not allowed, or where Christians suffer because of poverty or persecution. Christian Aid Mission is generally considered to be the first U.S. organization to assist and promote native missionaries overseas. Since 1997, Christian Aid has been a member of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA).
