Dear Friends,Bishop Robert Barron recently wrote a concise yet profound reflection on John 17:1-11. Here it is in full (emphasis mine):“Friends, Jesus’ prayer in today’s Gospel sums up his wonderful work as he is about to return to his Father. Jesus was, in his very person, the meeting of heaven and earth. God and humanity came together in him, and his entire ministry was the outward expression of that inward identity. By calling a scattered Israel to unity, inviting the poor to table fellowship, healing the sick in body and heart, and embodying the path of forgiveness and love, Jesus was bringing God’s will and purpose to earth.Now, in his Passion and Death, Jesus brought heaven all the way down into the world. He carried the divine light into the darkest places of the human condition—hatred, cruelty, violence, corruption, stupidity, suffering, and death itself—and thereby transformed them. And the proof that heaven is able to transform earth is, of course, the Resurrection. Now we know that cruelty, hatred, violence, fear, suffering, and death are not the most powerful forces in the world. Now we know that the divine love is more powerful. God’s kingdom has, in principle, broken the kingdoms of the world, which thrive upon, and in turn produce, those very negativities.”This is a great reminder for believers to not be afraid of witnessing this divine love to those who do not believe. Christ has transformed even the worst thing that can possibly happen in life—death. We truly have nothing to fear.Thank you for your prayers and for your continued support of FRC and the family.Sincerely,Dan Hart Managing Editor for Publications Family Research Council FRC MediaOne Year Later: The Impact of President Trump’s Executive Order Protecting Religious Liberty – Travis WeberFairfax County School Board to Teach Kids: “Biological Sex Is Meaningless” – Cathy RuseRemembering the Little Ones Up Above on Mother’s Day – Dan HartSponsors of California’s AB 2943 Claim It Wouldn’t Ban the Bible.

Prayer, praise and provision.The Water for Life ministry returned and drilled 2 more wells for us. One for the school across from us that turned out great. Enough water for the school and surrounding homes... including our local mayor. So maybe a softer tone toward our Honduras Missions ministry.Plus it keeps all the school children from crossing a busy highway to our property for water. Seven people have been hit including one of ours in the last 10 years. The second well was in the mountains for the Ven a Mi Baptist Church. Water is not as abundant in the mountains, but we are hoping it will provide the church and surrounding area clean drinking water for the first time.Pastor Ruis is healing well with the meds and care that was provided. So much so he came to visit us and is now preaching up in the mountain for one of our preachers. He plans to return to Cuba June 6th to deal with a property that is being donated. They are insisting it be in the ministry's name. So Honduras Missions will have property in Cuba. The general and his family and extended family were baptized and have begun showing fruit. We also sent christian movies to watch, some were for entertainment, evangelism and science videos . His sister in law admits she hated Americans, but after trusting the LORD and watching the videos she sees them with new eyes and a new heart. (she is donating the land) Amen. The general now sits with his enlisted men to eat and talk and is taking baby steps in witnessing. His son is also. Remember they have known nothing but atheism, communism and evolution for 60yrs. Everything we have said is new to them. Ruis found in talks they want a couple of hiking backpacks like they saw with Canadian tourist in Africa and a nice guitar. (They are very limited in what they can purchase) So we are looking for a way to aquire and send them with Ruis.A few weeks back Cindy showed up at church. She was the 11yr old girl with us for a short time whom we we had a large tumor removed from her throat. She was removed from our care shortly after surgery. She is now 18 and has had it rough, and had a baby since leaving us. After visiting church she began to beg to return. Up to 100 calls a day. Then she just showed up at our home as we pulled out to church, she had no place to live. We sought wisdom and ended up placing her with Pastor Augusto's family for now. They live as poor as church mice, but are rich in what Cindy needs most. Now we are looking for ways to help them help her.Dia de Madre 2018 in La Cruz Baptist Church went very well. A young preacher must be walking close to the LORD to preach prov 24:25 and 12:9 on mothers day... and have most of the women stand in prayer to do better at the invitation.. amen... Similar activities in all the other Honduras Missions churches as well... overall a very good day. Amen.One of the fathers that reconciled with the Lord in the outreach was in church today and came up to me saying he wants to serve the Lord. Amen. Old Kia is toast... no one hurt. Amen. Alberto, Lenin, and David were heading up the mountain to check why the new well pump quit working. A bad place on the road caused them to hit a rock driveway of a house. Frame broke, twisted and buckled, rt front tire moved 6in back, sub frame bent, cab mounts bent and broken and cab moved 3in forward windshield broke from Lenin's head and the taillight asy broke off. Changed one tire and drove slowly home under its own power leaving skid marks the whole way... weee. Need a frame to put it back in service... Thank you for the prayers.. The boys took cement up the mountain to fix the driveway they broke and stopped in the river for sand. Kia... will take much more than a day... I knew of a used good frame for sale for $1000 a while back... need to find it again and the funds to buy it... will be a lot of work but a good truck is hard to come by here...
Dear Friends,If you pay much attention to what everyone is talking about these days—what some might call “news”—it’s easy to pick up on a troubling pattern. Kyle Smith at National Review has pinpointed it well: it’s “a culture of enmity.” It’s something that both liberals and conservatives are guilty of—a near constant state of indignation, usually aimed at someone who said something “hateful,” that must be made publicly known. As Smith observes, it can be easy to fall into the trap of fighting hate with more hate: “Any uneasy feelings about hate are washed clean when that hate is obviously justified. Hating haters, these days, produces a kind of ecstasy. It is easily mistaken for love.”As Christians, we are called to something higher. Even when we feel that we are justified in “calling out” someone for something that they have said or written that we find offensive, we need to slow down and give our response careful consideration. As David French has observed: “If you truly hate the offensive speech in question — if you truly believe it’s hurtful — why share it far and wide? Why amplify the offensive voice? Arguably, the worst rebuke for a troll, the worst punishment for the self-promoting radical, is indifference. I have my own standard for engaging bad ideas — First, I wait. I ask myself: Are these ideas gaining traction? Do they threaten to make a material difference in the marketplace of ideas? If the answer is yes, then I engage. If the answer is no, I let the offensive speech die a natural death.” In other words, ignoring offensive remarks can often be the most prudent course of action, especially in our current cultural climate of ubiquitous outrage.At the risk of sounding a little bit trite and nave, it’s time for Christians to start a revolution of positivity by infusing the public square with truth, goodness, and beauty. Instead of pontificating about the latest outrage on Facebook, share an insightful spiritual quote you heard from last Sunday’s sermon, or share a link to an inspiring story about the adoption of a needy child. The authentic Christian life should not solely be focused on exposing the darkness of evil. Our primary goal should be to magnify the lightness of good.Thank you for your prayers and for your continued support of FRC and the family.Sincerely,Dan Hart Managing Editor for Publications Family Research Council FRC ArticlesThe Child Welfare Provider Inclusion Act: Ensuring a Free Marketplace of Adoption Providers – Travis WeberParents Stand Up for Children in Sex Ed Sit Out – Cathy RuseMore Sex Ed and Even More Stalinism at the Local School Board – Cathy Ruse and Austin RusePompeo: A Proven Leader for the State Department – Ken BlackwellPompeo Is Ready to Lead – William G.

Dear Friends,I recently came across a beautiful true-life story about a man who has saved hundreds of lives from suicide. Nicknamed the “Angel of The Gap,” Don Ritchie was a former Navy seaman in Australia who moved into a seaside house with his wife in 1964 that was situated just 50 yards away from a cliff overlooking the ocean in Watsons Bay, a suburb of Sydney known as The Gap. Through his living room window, he would often spot lost souls who were obviously there for no other reason than to attempt a jump that would end their lives. As soon as he spotted someone who was acting suspiciously, Don would immediately walk outside and calmly approach them, asking “Is there something I could do to help you?” He would invite them to his house for tea, and more often than not, they would accept his invitation.In the 45 years that Don lived in Watsons Bay, he was credited with saving at least 160 lives by government officials, but his family has said that the actual number is probably closer to 500. A year before his death in 2012 at 86, he said this in an interview: “I’m 85, and even at my age, it has broadened my horizons with all the wonderful people I have met. It’s important for troubled people to know that there are complete strangers out there like myself who are willing and able to help them get through that dark time and come out on the other side.”This inspiring story is an important reminder for us Christians to always be ready to give an account for the hope that is in us (1 Peter 3:15), especially when we encounter someone who is clearly in need of help, whether it be a friend or a perfect stranger. As the “Angel of The Gap” demonstrated, we must never be afraid to reach out. God most often shares Himself through the witness of His instruments (us), and in so doing, He not only changes those that we touch, but changes us as well.Thank you for your prayers and for your continued support of FRC and the family.Sincerely,Dan Hart Managing Editor for Publications Family Research Council FRC ArticlesReligious Freedom and National Security – Travis WeberSummary of Trump Administration Policy on Transgender Military Service – Peter SpriggWhat Mike Pompeo understands about religion and national security – Travis WeberMike Pompeo, religious freedom and a safer world -- how are these three things connected? – Tony PerkinsStudents Partake in National Walkout for the Unborn – Patrina MosleyDems in a panic as a major Planned Parenthood funding source is at risk – Kelly MarcumMike Pompeo Has the Correct Perspective on Human Rights – Travis WeberCardi B Chooses Life – Patrina MosleyFRC Resources to Combat the Extreme Sex Ed Agenda in SchoolsFor the Sake of Our Security at Home, We Must Focus on Religious Freedom Abroad – Travis Weber Religious LibertyReligious Liberty in the Public SquareSen.

Dear Friends,When I was attending mass a number of years ago, the priest said something that I’ll never forget. He thanked God for giving us “the consolation of the truth.”Since then, I have thought often about how knowing the Truth and believing in it has indeed been a tremendous consolation to me. I’m the kind of person who inclines toward a more melancholic view of the world, and I find that I have a tendency to easily get discouraged about life. This is why I am especially grateful for my faith. When I find myself getting a little down, I know exactly what I need to do: to turn to the Lord, thank him for all he has done for me, and ask for his help. This simple act gives me tremendous peace of mind—I know that I’m not the one in control of anything. God alone holds all of our lives in the palm of his hand.Knowing the peace that my faith has brought to my life, it’s greatly saddening to know that there are so many in our culture who don’t have any belief in the eternal to fall back on, which according to Pew, is now at roughly 23 percent of the country. Even though there are so many who are not believers, one thing I do know is that we all long for the eternal. In the words of Bishop Barron: “No matter how much we know, we want to know more; No matter how much we love, we want greater love; No matter how much beauty we attain, we sense that there is a perfect beauty that we haven’t seen.”In this Easter season of the Lord’s defeat of death, let us proclaim what we know to be true: that the longing we all have for our lives to be perfect is not mere silly sentimentality. This longing was built into us by our Creator—it reflects the fact that we are longing for unification with he who is Perfect. It is only in surrendering our lives to this Perfect Truth that we find true happiness and true consolation.Thank you for your prayers and for your continued support of FRC and the family.Sincerely,Dan Hart Managing Editor for Publications Family Research Council FRC ArticlesBolton could be the first national security chief to prioritize religious freedom – Ken Blackwell and Frank WolfCitizenship Matters – Ken BlackwellSupreme Court should spare pro-lifers from compelled pro-abortion speech – Cathy Ruse and Patrina MosleyDems refuse to recognize Trump's first-rate federal court picks – Ken BlackwellAs Science Advances, the Pro-Life Movement Grows – Patrina MosleyBen Shapiro: America Must Have a Shared Duty to God to Survive – Dan HartDrug Addicts Need Treatment and Tough Love, Not Facilitation of Their Habit – David KraydenHow to Find Healing When Your Spouse is an Addict – Caleb AndersonAttacks on Counseling Threaten Pastors and Churches – Travis WeberDoes Down Syndrome Keep the “Good Life” Out of Reach? – Patrina MosleyOf Guns and Prodigal Fathers – Peter Sprigg Religious LibertyReligious Liberty in the Public SquareUniversity Reverses Ban on Conservative Student Who Said There Are Only 2 Genders – Samuel Smith, The Christian PostArchdiocese appeal over Christmas ads on Metrobuses back in federal court – Chantalle Edmunds, WTOPGoogle defeats lawsuit claiming YouTube censors conservatives – Jonathan Stempel, ReutersGoogle snubbed Easter with no doodle for 18th year in a row, Christians say – Frank Miles, Fox NewsInternational Religious Freedom'Jesus is Building His Church' Inside Iran, Millions Watching Christian Satellite TV – George Thomas, CBNNigerian Christians call for abducted schoolgirl’s freedom – Onize Ohikere, WORLDAmerica shouldn't send endangered religious minority refugees back to Iran – Nina Shea, Fox NewsAfter the fall: the church in Vietnam – June Cheng, WORLDAmbassador Brownback: World faces a 'critical moment' for religious minorities – Courtney Grogan, CNACourt: Pakistani Christians Must Reveal Religion to Vote or Apply for Jobs – Christianity TodayYoung Mom Clings to Christ as Tolerance Shifts in India – Brian Orme, The Gospel CoalitionXi Jinping’s Village – Dan Hitchens, First ThingsReligious Totalitarianism, Secular Totalitarianism, and Other Threats to International Religious Freedom – Daniel Mark, Public DiscourseChina makes ‘major change’ in religious freedom oversight – Mindy Belz, WORLDMilitary Religious FreedomExonerated!
