God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, Even though the earth be removed, And though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; Though its waters roar and be troubled, Though the mountains shake with its swelling.
Psalms 46:1 – 3 (NKJV)

On Friday night we heard a noise coming from outside that sounded like fireworks, but only a single bang. It was rather strange, because usually, fireworks come in a series of shots. In a few days we found out that it wasn’t fireworks, but a shooting outside of our window. One bullet when through our upstairs neighbor’s window making a big hole, before getting stuck in the window frame (between the panes of glass). At first our neighbor thought that their kids were playing with marbles and dropped them from their bunk bed. They checked everywhere, but did not find any marbles or any other toys, and decided to put off any further investigation until the next morning. In the morning they found out that the window pane had a hole and later found a bullet. They were shocked, especially because the hole was next to their daughter’s bed.Continue Reading…
God is present in the storm! The bible is replete with examples of difficult, testing times. In fact, most of the bible was written in the midst of challenging, even frightening circumstances: Look it up!
This month, the MPI newsletter is a Special Issue, focused on the political crisis in Ukraine. The situation on the ground is very fluid and is changing rapidly. As of this writing, Russia has occupied the crimean peninsula and is entrenching there. The new government in Kiev mobilizing Ukraine’s military while also seeking out IMF loans to help address the current financial crisis. There is talk of sanctions against Russia, and cancelling the G8 summit that had been scheduled for June in Sochi, Russia (where the 2014 Winter Olympics were held).
MPI was born in this kind of environment. In 1991, Ron Garrison was traveling in Belarus when the Soviet government collapsed. Then, as today, God is in control. Your partnership with us, both in prayer, and with financial resources can make a difference to this area of the world. Our heart goes out to the people of these countries. We pray for them daily. Please join us in prayer!
