PRINCETON—It's a story that only God could orchestrate. Two families, distraught over obstacle after obstacle in their adoption processes, today see God's divine hand in bringing five siblings from Haiti to their loving, Christian homes in rural western Kentucky.
One of my favorite books of the Bible is the Gospel of Mark. I like his "just the facts" approach to the Gospel story. I had a little laugh recently while reading the following passage:
Kentucky Baptists seek to reverse decline in baptisms
The Kentucky Baptist Convention evangelism team, in cooperation with Kentucky Baptist associations and associational mission strategists, recently completed a 14-stop training tour to equip, encourage and inspire Kentucky Baptists to utilize the North American Mission Board's evangelism mobilization resource known as "Who's Your One?"
In January 2014, our home was broken into by three young teenagers. My husband and I arrived home just in time to see two kids being placed in handcuffs. Our world changed.
Opportunities abound for Kentuckian to share Christ
"I can really see His hand"—those are words spoken frequently and fervently by Linda Cooper, reflecting on God's work in her life from the days of her youth until now as she begins her fifth year as president of the national Woman's Missionary Union (WMU).
Plan now for Eliza Broadus campaign
It's never too early to begin planning for your Eliza Broadus Offering campaign! The year's theme is called "Equipping To Go!" As Kentucky Baptists, we are called to boldly share the gospel. No matter where we are, God is calling us to be on mission through praying, learning, giving and going. While the theme challenges us to support ministries across our state, which equip believers for making disciples who live on mission, it is also a personal challenge to ready ourselves to go!
No matter how spiritual someone is, there probably have been times the person has questioned God's presence in his life. We are prone to wonder—is God at work in my life? Has He forgotten me or has He abandoned me?
God comforts us in loss
As I was sitting in the waiting area of a doctor's office, my mind was on the subject of the various ways in which God works. It was during that time that I received a text message from Kentucky Today's Mark Maynard. The text message read as follows: "Hey Brother, Harold Cathey is in hospice. His homegoing is imminent … he may not make it through the day."
