23. Help needed in Philippines

This issue reflects on my recent trip to the Philippines, looks at recent attacks on U.S. sovereignty, provides an update on the Israeli soldier kidnapped by Hamas in June of 2006, and offers help in abbreviating scriptural references.

OUR ISRAELI CONNECTION

Jay Sekulow  (ACLJ) reports
The United Nations (U.N.) and the international community are scrambling to erase the boundaries between countries – to turn the people of free nations like the U.S. and Israel over to the whims of radicals around the world.

The latest example is an outrageous attack by the Palestinian Authority – not even an actual nation – calling for Israeli soldiers (some who hold dual U.S. citizenship) to be convicted of ''war crimes'' simply for fulfilling their duty, defending their countrymen against attacks by the Hamas terrorists!

And now we're hearing reports that the Obama Administration will have the U.S. join the International Criminal Court (ICC)!
 
The Israel Project reports
Israel released 19 female Palestinian prisoners Friday (Oct. 2) in return for a video of kidnapped soldier Staff Sgt. Gilad Shalit, recorded by his Hamas captors. One other prisoner will be released on Sunday. In the video, Shalit appeared to be in good health, and is shown holding up a newspaper dated Sept. 14.

Iran-backed Hamas abducted Shalit from Israel on June 25, 2006 in an unprovoked, cross-border attack. Until now, Hamas offered few signs that the 22-year-old French-Israeli citizen was alive or details about his condition. Hamas still refuses to let the Red Cross or other humanitarian groups visit him Рa violation of the Geneva Convention. Shalit was 19 when he was kidnapped 1,195 days ago.  He was wounded in the attack.

 IT’S NEWS TO ME

Home from the Philippines
As promised, here's a little more about my trip. I have never felt so used by God as I did on this trip. I felt the power of the Holy Spirit as I taught, prayed, answered questions, and on a much baser level, just survived the oppressive heat. It was obvious that many people were praying. I wish you all could share in what I experienced. One of the “highlights”

was finding out on the way to a remote church that I was delivering the sermon. All the notes I would have used were in my hotel room. God would have to do it, and He did. It was exactly what that church needed to hear. It couldn't have been better if I had spent days preparing. God is so good!

I experienced the “truth” that timing is everything. We arrived in Manila on the final day of a moderate typhoon. We experienced wind and rain, but nothing serious. Two days after I left, the Metro Manila area was hit with a major typhoon. Isaias, our host and AFCI Director for the Philippines, has been emailing me with pictures of the devastation and pleas for help. Some of his closest friends (pastors he works with) have lost everything. Their homes have been washed away or are under a wall of mud.They have no insurance to cover their losses. He told of wading through water chest deep to get a bag of rice to some friends who had been struggling to survive for the past two days–outside–in the water. Dead bodies of dogs and humans were floating past him. Hundreds of people were carrying what they could as they searched for higher ground.

WRITING TIPS

Abbreviating scriptural references   
In references to passages of Scripture the names of the books of the Bible may be abbreviated when they are used with numerals designating chapter and verse.
 
    1 Cor. 1:16-20 
    Rev. 3:20
 
When reference is made to an entire chapter, it is better in text to spell out the name of the book.      
    
¬†¬†¬†¬† In the thirteenth chapter of First Corinthians…
¬†¬†¬†¬† In the first Epistle to the Corinthians, chapter 13,…
¬†¬†¬†¬† In the Second Book of Kings, the second chapter,…
¬†¬†¬†¬† In the first chapter of the Gospel according to John,…¬†¬†¬†
