Cynthia Rice, Robin Waymire, others welcome troops home at the airport with smiles, flags, and hugs!
Cynthia Rice, Robin Waymire and friends looked for ways to show appreciation to the troops defending our country.  Their response was simple and creative … find a day when a lot of them were going through the St. Louis airport on their way home for Christmas.  In 2009, after making arrangements, about 40 volunteers assembled in an open area where all the troops were sure to pass.  In 2010 the idea repeated on Sunday, December 19th, from 7:00 – 11:00 AM on a “come when you can and leave when you must” basis…at the lower level baggage area by the USO.  As the troops pass, the group smiles, they say “welcome” and “thank you,” and they wave little American flags.  Some make signs reflecting love for God, country, and our troops.  The sign that read like “I need a soldier hug” actually created something of a receiving line … of hugs! 

(What about doing something like this in your city!!)

Jim Matush of Trinity Wealth Advisors: His Suffering Transforms His Practice, Deepens His Purpose

Jim Matush helps kingdom-minded business owners convert their success into significance.  www.trinitywealth.com 

His passion for his work is driven by a deep suffering from the loss of his son Jamie, who died in 2000 at the age of 15. As Jim struggled to grasp for meaning, he had a powerful dream in which his son said, "Dad - my work is finished. Your work is just beginning." This set Jim on a personal journey to discover what "work" might define his calling, and what daily practice would leave lasting Kingdom impact.

Over the years, Jim has found his greatest passion in guiding successful Christian business owners through the process of mobilizing their wealth for Kingdom purpose, and aligning their wealth in a way that frees their time and their heart to focus on God's calling. He helps these individuals get on the same page with their spouse, define their ultimate vision for their life, and then walk through a consultative wealth management process that brings great clarity, freedom, and streamlining to their financial and personal lives. "When these individuals prepare to sell a business, retire, or undergo a major liquidity event, a paradigm shift begins to take place. They begin moving from success to significance. God speaks volumes about his plans and purposes. It's my greatest joy to help my clients discover those plans and purposes, and align their wealth accordingly. Many of my clients are experiencing this for the first time in their lives. The potential for Kingdom impact is powerful."

Jim's team is in Kirkwood (in the St. Louis, MO area). They know they're not right for every family, but they love to meet with Kingdom-minded individuals, and commit to a minimum providing clarity and pointing them in the right direction. www.trinitywealth.com

Lindsay Matush calls world's attention to tribe of persecuted, endangered Jesus-followers in Kenya

Here is the story of some of our Christian brothers and sisters in Kenya who are suffering terrible atrocity, and are threatened daily by the Muslim Terrorist group Al-Shabaab. This interview tells the heartbreaking story of one St. Louis based refugee, and his family who suffers unlawful detention in Kenya. Please sign this petition to help reunite these families: http://chn.ge/1j6DwDJ . More information is available at www.kenyarefugeecrisis.com.  A synopsis of the story is as follows:

On Sunday, May 4th, Kenyan police stormed a small refugee church in a suburb of Nairobi and arrested 200 legally documented, peaceful refugees from the DR Congo. They were imprisoned for four days with no food or water, in a single cell with no bathroom facilities, and separated from their families, even nursing women from their babies. Pregnant women, sick individuals, and elderly alike were all detained inhumanely. They were beaten, tear gassed, and taken to a refugee camp in the desert. They are threatened daily by Al-Shabaab members inside the camp, lack access to clean water or sufficient food, and sleep on cardboard boxes on the ground.

This is a result of Kenya's recent security initiatives, as they struggle to suppress terrorist threats from the Al-Shabaab Muslim extremist group. In response to these threats, Kenya has launched an initiative to rid its urban centers of foreign-born people. They are rounding up thousands of innocent refugees whom they’ve promised asylum, forcing those with legal documentation into refugee camps, and deporting those without. It’s tearing apart families who have already known terrible atrocity and long only for peace and a place to call home.


Our hearts break for the atrocities levied against Kenya, but we urge Kenya to adopt security measures that are in keeping with international human rights law and consistent with its long history of being a good global citizen and offering asylum to displaced people.

Naghmeh Abedini visits KC; brings worldwide notice to persecution; husband Saeed imprisoned in Iran

Naghmeh (pronounced “Nog’ may”) Abedini is being used of God to call attention to persecuted Christians worldwide.  Facts:

·         She is the wife of an American citizen, and the native Iranian, Pastor Saeed Abedini, persecuted and imprisoned in the notorious Evin Prison in his native Iran for functioning as a Christian.  At the time he was developing plans for building an orphanage there on family owned property.  

 

·         Naghmeh is depicted full cover on the September issue of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association’s “Decision” Magazine … with the powerful story inside.  Her husband Saeed was once a radical Muslim who pondered thoughts of killing a Christian who said that Jesus was God.

 

·         From Decision Magazine, September, 2013, p 11: “As he went to bed one night … Saeed heard a voice in the room, saying, ‘Saeed, I am coming soon.  Go preach My Gospel.’  An hour later, he awoke to hear he very same words. Saeed fell back to sleep.  He awoke again to a bright light shining through the window. As the light approached him, the command was repeated.  Shaking and sweating, Saeed found himself saying, ‘I will do it.’”

 

·         (Much more about Islamic people having Dreams and Visions of Jesus can be accessed at … http://www.morethandreams.org/, wherein a powerful DVD of five reenactments of such stories is available for ordering.)

 

·         Also from same September issue of Decision Magazine, p 12, quoting Naghmeh: My husband is in jail simply because he loves Jesus Christ …. He was arrested as he worked on an orphanage we are building on property we own and for which we had received all the proper permits.  He was also gathering peacefully with fellow Christians in their private homes, expressing his faith.”

 

·         On September 26 the BGEA ran a full page letter in the New York Times from Dr. Billy Graham to the Iranian President in behalf of Pastor Abedini … at the time when the Iranian President and delegation were in New York City attending the United Nations.  The next day … in the first conversation between an American President and a President of Iran in 35 years … President Obama included a reference of the imprisonment of Pastor Saeed.

 

·         Jay Sekulow and the American Center of Law and Justice are advocates of Pastor Saeed.

 

·         Naghmeh has spoken before the United Nations … and on BBC and the Voice of America, heard by millions in Iran and the Middle East … in behalf of her jailed husband, wherein she honored the Name and saving power of Jesus.

 

·         Known prayer vigils for Pastor Saeed have occurred in 85 US cities and 16 countries.

 

·         www.savesaeed.org was posted less than a year from this copy by the American Center of Law and Justice in behalf of Pastor Saeed … and has “… garnered more than 600,000 signatures from people around the world demanding Saeed’s release from illegal incarceration.”  (Decision Magazine, Sept, 2013, p.12)

 

·         On October 29, 2013, Nog’may is to be the Kansas City guest and speaker at the Annual Session of the Missouri Baptist Convention.  (See www.mbcpathway.org and www.missouribaptist.org.)

 

·         Appreciation is extended to Don Hinkle … editor of the Missouri Baptist Convention’s Pathway (www.mbcpathway.com -- which includes a feature titled: “Editor Don Hinkle interviewed by Harold Hendrick”) … and to Jayne Patton of Wentzville, MO for providing the connections for recording this time of radio with Naghmeh Saeed.  You can now listen to her…in her own words.

CFO Larry Absheer: his profession & workplace as an opportunity for ministry. Is yours?

Hear Larry Absheer … in his own words …

Interview Synopsis:

Larry Absheer is the Chief Financial Officer of the very established, very nice 100-year-old Missouri Athletic Club (www.mac-stl.org). “MAC” (as it is known) has its primary facilities in downtown St. Louis across the street from Americas Convention Center and the Edward Jones Dome where the St. Louis Rams play football.

As a follower of Jesus. Larry looked for … and found … ways in which he could utilize his profession and his workplace to serve the Lord.  A primary means is to host and provide hospitality for ministries when they need to gather for advancing their work.      

For instance, when he learned of the unfolding plans for the 1999 “Greater St. Louis Crusade with Billy Graham,” he let it be known that he wished to be involved.

Since then … and even before … Larry Absheer has been very helpful serving through his career and workplace.  When a ministry group needs a nice, neutral, and centrally located site to conduct it short-term work, the Missouri Athletic Club is very high on the list of options. 

Here is a partial list of the St. Louis connected ministries benefiting in recent years from “MAC’s” hospitality for gathering, planning, and development;  

·         The Billy Graham Crusade in 1999 that met across the street from MAC in the Edwards Jones Dome;

·         Franklin Graham’s one-day Rock the River event under the St. Louis Arch in August 2, 2009, (but which required a year of staff preparation) wherein 65,000+ mostly young people came together to hear Christian Rock bands and Franklin preach the Good News of Jesus … three different times during the one day event;

·         Bill Bright and Campus Crusade for Christ (now known as “Cru”);

·         Gathering of the Mission America Coalition’s (www.missionamerica.org) CityReachers.

·         Rick Warren of Saddleback Church in California;

·         Events pertaining to the annual CBMC (www.cbmcstl.com – Connecting Businessmen to Christ) Prayer Breakfast of Greater St. Louis, wherein he served as chairman of the steering committee;

·          Mission Metro St. Louis;

·         Wheaton College, the school of Billy Graham and Larry Absheer -- their local sports teams and alumni gatherings;

·         Experiencing God events led by Henry Blackaby, his family and staff;

·         Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship (Urbana ’06, ’09, ’12 and anticipated Urbana 12);

·         Cru’s Athletes in Action

·         The Lutheran Church Extension Fund

·         The Christian Broadcasting Networks coordination and partnership with local churches in distribution of hundreds of thousands of Bible portions

·         First Evangelical Free Church; and

·         New Song Fellowship

While this focus heavily spotlights the role of one layman serving through his career and workplace, it is hoped that such an example will “cast a vision” as to how each of us might use our own situations and circumstances – career, employment, relationships, retirement – to creatively serve our Lord…in the limited time we each have remaining.

Your conditions will be different, but God can provide you wisdom in how to apply the principle where you are. .    

Illustration: This whole focus of ministering through our career and employment calls to mind radio I hosted several years ago.  It was with an Oklahoma City dedicated Christian businessman, a brother to the then mayor of the City.  He owned and operated a successful company with scores of employees that produced hair products for African-Americans.  He worked 50-60 hours each week, but acknowledged feelings of guilt for not being able to do more evangelistic visitation through his church. 

Amid it all, God revealed to him that his workplace was to be his primary place of ministry.  With this new mindset, he focused on honoring Jesus by treating his employees with dignity and fairness, paying them above what was expected, befriending and being kindly available to them, especially in times of crisis.  Joy and satisfaction came to fill his life as he focused on his workplace … and the relationships in his workplace … as being his primary place of ministry outside his home and family.  

 
Larry Absheer, Najah Fennoy of STL’s MO Athletic Club supporting Special Olympics for special people

Support of the “Special Olympics” for special people is the focus of Larry Absheer, Chief  Financial Officer, and Najah Fennoy, Director of New Opportunities, of the Missouri Athletic Club of St. Louis.  They describe MAC support in a relay through the USA culminating in the 2015 Special Olympics in California.

The support of the Missouri Athletic Club of St. Louis for the “Special Olympics” is described by Larry Absheer and Najah Fennoy.

“MAC” (as the Club is known, described at www.mac-stl.org) served as a link in a nationwide relay in support of the Special Olympics’ special people.  Attending the event was  Olympian Jackie Joiner Koursey and Missouri’s Lt. Governor Peter Kinder.

With the special attention and facilitation of Larry Absheer, for many years the “classy” Missouri Athletic Club has hosted the preparation of major Christian events and activities, such as the 1999 Billy Graham Crusade for Greater St. Louis, 2009 “Rock the River” with Franklin Graham, annual National Day of Prayer, Mission Metro St. Louis events, and others.

 

 
Hispanic leader Jose Aguayo re Haitian prayer event against demonic; now prayer commitment to Jesus

Pastor Jose (ho say’) Aguayo (a gui’ jo), native of Puerto Rico, via New York City came to St. Louis, MO “kicking and screaming.”  He didn’t want to go to St. Louis.  But God has given him a meaningful place – and much joy – in serving Jesus in crossing many lines … radial and geographical.  His international ministry has recently resulted is his being invited to help lead a massive prayer meeting in Haiti.  Jose reports that in Haiti’s historic past the island country was dedicated to “Voodoo” and demonic activity.  In August 2012 the prayers of many in Haiti were to seek to dedicate the country of Jesus Christ.
