As Christians, when we say "I believe", I wonder how often we give serious thought to what we are really saying. Often, the first thought that comes to mind is John 3:16 "....for whosoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life." But saying "I believe" carries with it much more far-reaching implications than just redemption and heaven. If you believe in Jesus, you must also believe in His teachings and commandments. You see, Christianity is a package deal, you can't just take part of it, you must take it all. The committment is both sobering and challenging. As spring approaches and we experience new life around us, let's take a moment to put new life in our Christian committment.

A big THANK YOU for all those who worked and came out to support our Fundraiser on April 30 for Oscar Mmbali and FUM's Belizean ministry. Your wonderful efforts and generosity allowed us to exceed our goals in helping to give Oscar a headstart in widening a Quaker presence in Latin America. Oscar has a PhD in International Development and over 5 years experience in church planting and ministering to prisioners and victims in Thailand. The Lord was at work in placing Oscar in this position, and we are confident that great things are on the horizon in Belize.
