 Přenosné laboratoře zlepšují úroveň lékařské misie v Afghánistánu.
   Zdroj: Morning Star Development. Zdravotničtí pracovníci při Morning Star Development (Rozvojový program Jitřenka) v Afghánistánu dostali koncem roku 2006 významného pomocníka – čtyři přenosné laboratoře „laboratoř v kufru,“ což jim umožní rozšířit lékařskou péči. Peníze na jejich zakoupení a na roční úhradu spotřebního materiálu získala Morning Star Development od americké armády. Souprava byla navržena organizací International Aid a umožňuje provádění „asi 80% nejčastěji požadovaných laboratorních vyšetření.“ Přes 400 těchto souprav je používáno po celém světě v oblastech bez elektřiny a zázemí potřebného pro zřízení trvalé laboratoře. Morning Star je považuje za ideální pro afghánské izolované venkovské obyvatelstvo. Jednoduchá souprava v kufru umožňuje provádět řadu vyšetření moče, biochemické vyšetření, těhotenský test, hematologické vyšetření, vyšetření na AIDS, malárii a tuberkulózu a vyšetření hladiny krevního cukru. Do Afghánistánu již odjeli technici, kteří budou cvičit místní laboranty v lokalitách, kde klinické základny Morning Star působí: Tangi Saidan, Lalander and Jegdelak. Tytéž laboratorní jednotky budou používány i v pojízdných ošetřovnách navštěvujících odlehlé vesnice bez lékařské služby.

Healthcare workers with Morning Star Development in Afghanistan received a substantial boost late in 2006 with the addition of four “lab-in-a-suitcase” portable laboratories to expand the organization’s medical clinic capabilities. A grant to purchase these units along with a year’s supply of the consumable supplies needed for operation was awarded to Morning Star in December by the U.S. Military. Designed by International Aid, the units perform “80 percent of the standard tests most frequently requested by field physicians.” More than 400 of the units are in use worldwide in areas lacking electricity, technology or resources to maintain a permanent lab. Morning Star sees the units as ideal for Afghanistan’s scattered rural populations. A single lab-in-a-suitcase includes the broad functions of urinalysis, chemistry, hematology and testing for pregnancy, HIV, malaria and tuberculosis as well as blood sugar analysis. A lab technician is being sent to Afghanistan to train lab workers at Morning Star’s Tangi Saidan, Lalander and Jegdelak clinic locations. The units will also be used in a medical vehicle that visits outlying villages with no medical services.

About 500 anti-Christian radicals attacked a Gospel for Asia (GFA) Bible college in the eastern Indian state of Orissa on Wednesday evening, February 28. GFA leaders in the area report the mob, which was mobilized by Hindu youth nationalist group Bajrang Dal, systematically attacked the approximately 300 students and staff members present on the campus. Five students and the women’s dorm director were seriously injured. All have been hospitalized, and one student is in critical condition. The rest of the student body and staff remain inside the dormitories. Local and reserve police have arrived on the scene, but have found it difficult to control the tense situation. The attackers also disconnected the electricity and ransacked the campus, destroying many of the roofs of the school buildings. “The magnitude of this attack is unlike anything we’ve ever seen,” said GFA President K.P. Yohannan. “But our students and leaders are not discouraged. Please pray that this will become an opportunity for us to share the love of Jesus to the people who are persecuting us.”

A former law student in Cairo has been sentenced to four years in prison for using his website to “insult” Islam and Egypt’s president. Lawyers for Abdel Kareem Nabil said the sentence was being appealed. Nabil, 22, who describes himself as a secular Muslim, was given three years in prison for insulting Islam and inciting sectarian strife and a fourth year for insulting President Hosni Mubarak, according to the Associated Press. He used his weblog to advocate secularism and criticize conservative Muslims, calling Al-Azhar University, Egypt’s leading Islamic institute the “university of terrorism.” The conviction was condemned by human rights groups, but the Egyptian government defended the decision. Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit was quoted as saying, “No one, no matter who he might be, has the right to interfere with Egyptian legal matters or comment on Egypt’s decisions.”

Policemen broke into the house of worship which is the home of Pastor Dong Quanyu, vice president of the Chinese House Church Alliance. The China Aid Association is calling for the immediate release of the Christians.

The popularity and rise in usage of cell phone text messages is being used for Christian communications in closed access countries. Short message services (SMS or text) are developing rapidly worldwide. In 2000 17 billion SMS messages were sent. In 2001 the number reached 250 billion, and that doubled in 2004. A few ministries now utilize the service for mobile access to devotionals or daily programs. Lee DeYoung with Words of Hope says the ministry now uses text messaging to share the gospel. “Text messaging is often much less expensive than regular voice calls, so we think this a wave that’s going to increase in the future. We’re trying to set up the facilities so that people can call a place where there’s not going to be suspicion and where the call can’t be easily traced to us or to our partners in various parts of the world.” Other ministry possibilities include ways to underscore Christian radio. “We are seeing some instances now where people are also [submitting] questions for radio programs -- things to pose to the host,” DeYoung said. “We think this has potential for live call-in programs as well.”
