|KŘESŤANSKÁ KOALICE PODPORUJE PREZIDENTA BUSHE|
|Roberta Combs, prezidentka Americké křesťanské koalice, říká, že jejich organizace podporuje prezidenta George W. Bushe v možné válce s Irákem. „Plně stojíme za prezidentem Bushem v jeho úsilí ukončit vládu diktátora Saddama Husseina v Iráku,“ řekla Combs v sobotu. „Během posledních několika týdnů jsme se setkali s mnoha iráckými disidenty, kteří nám přiblížili podrobněji krutou vládu Saddama Husseina a hrozné zacházení s jeho vlastním lidem. Vyzýváme Američany, aby stáli za úsilím prezidenta Bushe bojovat proti terorismu a přivést demokracii a západní hodnoty do všech oblastí světa. Prezident Bush je přítel a velmi odvážný vůdce a já se za něj každý den modlím. Hussein je zodpovědný za smrt tisíců nevinných civilistů, a jestliže nedojde ke konfrontaci, zemře ještě mnoho dalších nevinných. Jsme s prezidentem a modlíme se za rychlou porážku a demisi Saddama Husseina.“ (Christian Coalition of America)|
|AMERIČTÍ VOJÁCI SHROMAŽĎUJÍCÍ SE NA STŘEDNÍM VÝCHODĚ PROJEVUJÍ UPŘÍMNÝ ZÁJEM O EVANGELIUM.|
| (Mission Network News) - Američtí vojáci se sjíždějí na Střední Východ v souvislosti s možnou konfrontací s Irákem a i kazatelská činnost se rozmáhá, řekl generál Dick Abel, ředitel vojenské misijní složky Campus Crusade. „Ať jste v jakékoli jednotce, probíhá intenzívní výcvik. Přesto je spousta času, kdy se nedělá nic,“ říká generál Abel. „V tom případě voják až příliš mnoho přemýšlí, vidí před sebou možná nebezpečí a je psychicky zranitelnější.“ Dodává, že námořníci i příslušníci námořní pěchoty se rádi dívají na film Ježíš, ale že se v tomto ohledu dá udělat ještě mnohem víc. „Naším záměrem stále je, aby film byl k dispozici na každé lodi a na každé vojenské základně. Vidíme, že někde tomu tak již je a vidíme výsledky. Všude, kde to již funguje, Jeho Slovo nezůstává bez odezvy.

| CHRISTIAN COALITION BACKS PRESIDENT BUSH AS WAR WITH IRAQ LOOMS
Roberta Combs, president of the Christian Coalition of America, says the organization is backing President George W. Bush in a potential war with Iraq. "We stand wholeheartedly with President Bush in his quest to end the rule of dictator Saddam Hussein in Iraq," Combs said on Saturday. "In recent weeks we have met with a number of Iraqi dissidents who detailed Saddam Hussein's brutal rule and harsh treatment of his own people. We urge the American people to stand with President Bush in his quest to fight terrorists and bring democracy and Western values to all regions of the earth. President Bush is a friend, and a very courageous leader, and I pray for him daily. Hussein is responsible for the deaths of thousands of innocent civilians, and if he isn't confronted more innocent people will die. We stand with the president and pray for the swift defeat and demise of Saddam Hussein." (Christian Coalition of America)
U.S. SOLDIERS GATHERING IN MIDDLE EAST SHOW OPENNESS TO GOSPEL
As U.S. troops gather in the Middle East for a possible face-off with Iraq, doors of ministry are opening up, says Gen. Dick Abel, director of Campus Crusade's military ministry. "That's a time that you do your continuing training, in whatever combat arms you're in, but there's a lot of wait time," Abel says. "That's a time when you do a lot of thinking too, and that's a time where people understand they're going into harm's way, and it's a time when they're quite vulnerable." He adds that sailors and marines are responding well to video showings of the "Jesus" film, but there is much more to do. "Our goal has always been to put videos of the film on every base and on every ship in the armed forces. We're seeing that happen, and seeing results of it. As long as they're using it [we know] His Word will not come back void." (Mission Network News)
AMERICAN TEEN AMONG VICTIMS OF SUICIDE BOMBER IN ISRAEL
The teenage daughter of an American Baptist church worker, who was part of a school group trying to ease Arab-Israeli tensions, was among the 15 victims of a Palestinian suicide bomber who blew up a bus in Haifa, Israel, Wednesday, March 5, reported Charisma News. Abigail Litle, who was buried in Haifa on Sunday, March 9, was killed while riding a bus to the Reali school. The 14-year-old had recently taken part in an outreach program called "Children Teaching Children" which sponsored bridge-building field trips. Her father, Philip Litle, said she had "gone to a better place now." He has no plans to leave Israel where he and his wife and family have lived since 1989. "It's certainly sad that there are conflicts in the world," he said. "I think that there is only one solution to these conflicts and that is to have a heart of love. That's not what you find sometimes on either side here." Originally from New Hampshire, Litle moved to Israel to study at a university in Haifa and later took a job as an administrator at the Israel branch of the Southern Baptist Convention. "We were called here," he said. (Religion Today/AP)
SOCCER SCHOOL IN ISRAEL BRINGS JEWISH, ARAB YOUTHS TOGETHER
Hundreds of Jewish and Arab youngsters from 27 Israeli villages and towns not only come together once a week to learn the ins and outs of soccer, but also jointly tackle their homework and break down ethnic and religious barriers. The innovative project that has shot Jewish-Arab relations into a league of its own is the creation of the Maccabi Tel Aviv-Kibbutz Barkai Football School in partnership with the Givat Haviva Jewish-Arab Center for Peace. Each week about 230 youngsters ranging in age from 6 to l6 come together for two hour-long training sessions at the school. "In many similar sports initiatives, nobody was brave enough to face the obvious differences, and so we decided together to pick up the gauntlet of challenge -- but slowly," said Shimon Malka of the Jewish-Arab Center for Peace. "The kids come to us in groups of 15 or 20 and work with volunteer facilitators we have specially trained for this project." The volunteers are 20-year-old Arab students from the Givat Haviva Technological College together with young Jews from Kibbutz Metzer. "Apart from assisting them in English and math, we approach dealing with the sensitive issues relating to 'the other' during these sessions," explains Malka. For instance, part of the learning process is centered on what Malka describes as the "sister languages," helping Jewish children converse in Arabic and vice versa. A special program devised by young computer engineer Ahmad Kabha also introduces the youngsters to the Internet, honing in on websites that foster coexistence. (Assist News Service)
EVANGELISM TRAINING PROGRAM EXPANDS TO PASTORS ACROSS CHINA
Despite persecution against Christians in China, church leaders in the country have ambitious evangelism training goals, says Evangelism Explosion's Buddy Gaines. Last year the ministry held six clinics, and 10 are planned for this year. Now the local church is catching the vision. "They are in the process of building a six-story building that will be a training center," Gaines says. "A portion of the that building will be dedicated to Evangelism Explosion training. Their goal is to bring in pastors from all of the provinces, train them, and then send them back to do this ministry." (Mission Network News)
* CAMPAIGN IN GERMANY TO AIR WORLDWIDE VIA HCJB WORLD RADIO
A major evangelistic thrust called ProChrist 2003 is being planned for Gruga Hall in Essen, Germany, March 19-23. The campaign will be led by evangelist Ulrich Parzany, director of the YMCA in Germany. The sessions will simultaneously broadcast by the technical support of Trans World Radio in German to 1,300 sites across Europe and also be translated into 18 languages. HCJB World Radio will retransmit the German messages via shortwave, satellite and the Internet.
One of the downlinks will be in Bad Salzuflen, home of HCJB World Radio missionaries Rüdiger and Dorothea Klaue who represent the ministry across Germany. "I will record the transmissions in our city and send the messages via the Internet to our server in Colorado Springs," Rüdiger says. "From there the German Language Service in Quito will download the recording, edit it and transmit it on shortwave, satellite and the Internet -- like our other programs." Klaue says the pastors are "very excited" about this possibility. "Local newspapers here also will report on this, and Dorothea will moderate the presentations in Bad Salzuflen. On Monday, March 17, we will give an interview about HCJB World Radio and the planned transmissions."
This evangelistic campaign in Germany is held every two or three years, the first being 10 years ago when Billy Graham was the speaker. At each local site, evangelical churches in the area will work together to prepare local facilities, provide counselors and follow up new believers. (HCJB World Radio)
