I have read through the bible 60 times

A 99-year-old Tennessee church member who has read through the Bible 60 times recently embarked on her 61st journey through Scripture because, she says, “God shows me something new every time.”

The woman, known as “Miss Helen” to members of her congregation at The Church at Station Hill, in Spring Hill, Tenn., began reading through the Bible the 61st time after learning of a challenge by pastor Jay Strother, who urged church members to read through the Bible in one year.
The Baptist & Reflector recounted the inspiring story.

 The Bible-reading plan is part of Strother’s “The Whole Church in the Whole Word” challenge.

“I’ve been through the Bible 60 times and I might as well make it 61,” she told Strother.
The U.S. was embroiled in World War II the first time she read through the Bible. The challenge that year was “Read the Bible through in ’42.”

Miss Helen still attends the Sunday morning 8 a.m. service, in person, the Baptist & Reflector reported.

Strother asked her, “Miss Helen, why do you still do it?” She replied, “God shows me something new every time.”

“She said you’d think I’ve heard these stories, but every time I read it or hear it being read, I catch something new,” Strother told the Baptist & Reflector.

Miss Helen’s commitment to reading Scripture, Strother said, should convict and inspire other Christians to read their Bible.

“You could read the entire Bible through out loud in about 72 hours,” he said.

 “So in just a little more in the time that people usually watch TV – the typical American in two weeks – you could read the Bible through.”

Strother added, “So, it’s not that we don’t have the time, it’s that we don’t choose the time.”

More than 550 others signed up for the challenge after Miss Helen committed to read through the Bible again, Strother told the Baptist & Reflector.

Man Gives Glory To God After Finding Missing Toddler

A USPS worker is giving God the credit for being at the right place at the right time when he found a toddler who had been missing all night.

According to Christian Today , two-year-old Ethan Adeyemi disappeared from his home in Howard County, Maryland, around 10:20 pm last Wednesday night.

 He wandered barefoot along a Maryland highway the whole evening in only a sweatshirt and sweatpants.

Neighbors, K9 units, helicopters, drones, firefighters and police officers had been scouring the area for hours after the family reported him missing. But it was until Keith Rollins, the U.S. Postal worker who saw him at 8 AM, picked him up that he was safe.

Rollins was driving to work only a half-mile away from the child’s home when he saw him on the side of the road, according to WJZ in Baltimore.

“He had only a pair of sweatpants and sweatshirt, no shoes or socks,” said Rollins. “So I walked up to him. I said, ‘Hey, buddy. How you doing? What’s your name? Are you OK?’ He looked at me, but I didn’t get a response from him.”

The child was shivering, “wet to the bone and had no socks, no shoes.”

So Rollins “decided to scoop him up” and take him back to his truck.

“I had a sweater that I tried to cover him up with, and turned up the heat and I called the police back and said that I had the little boy in my vehicle, and within a matter of minutes, the police were there,” he said.

Adeyemi was rushed to the hospital for hypothermia after being found but remains in good condition.
Rollins doesn’t consider himself a hero.

“Giving glory to God that I was able to help at that particular time and be in the correct place at the right time,” he said. “[It] could’ve been a totally different story. He was blessed.”

There are ways one can protect themselves from catching the virus. Prevention methods include: washing hands with soap and water or using a hand rub always. Avoid touching the eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.

 Avoid close contact with infected people. Those infected should also cover their nose, mouth when coughing.

No vaccine or treatment is available for Coronavirus. However if infected one needs plenty of rest, lots of fluids and manage the symptoms such as sore throat, fever. If there is a pneumonia or bronchitis one should also receive appropriate treatment for that respiratory tract infection.

Take care of your family

"If anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for his immediate family, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever." 1Tim.5.8

This verse is a direct attack on some Christians who neglect their duty of taking care of their families. You cannot make yourself a christian by claiming to be  one. Christianity is practical. It is how you live and what you do that makes you a christian.

No matter how much you may pay your tithes, care for the widows and orphans at your church, if you're neglecting your immediate family, the bible says you're worse than an unbeliever.

 Despite the economic hardships and financial challenges try as much as possible to provide for your family.

 No condition is given here. Whether you are in agreement or not, whether they are Christians or not, take good care of them otherwise you will be condemned to an unbelievers position.

Christianity is first reflected within your family just like it is said charity begins at home. It is the love and care you extend to your family that should overflow to other people in the church and beyond.

 Neglecting your family is just like denying Christ because the bible says you have denied the faith.

Take care of your family.

Women could be jailed for denying husbands s*x

Women who refuse their husbands sex could be charged for emotional abuse and when found guilty, jailed to a maximum of two years imprisonment or to a fine of 500 penalty units which is equivalent to GH¢6,000 or both.

Central Regional Coordinator of the Domestic Violence and Victim Support Unit (DOVVSU), Mr George Appiah-Sakyi who made this known has therefore called on husbands to report their wives to the police for the law to deal with them.

According to him, the law is also applicable to men who may deny their wives sex encouraging such emotionally abused women to also lodge complaints with the police.

At a sensitization workshop for leaders of churches in the Cape Coast Metropolis on terrorism and other security issues, the police chief stated emphatically these violations are grounded in law and amount to emotional abuse punishable under the Domestic Violence Act 732 of 2007.

“If your husbands refuse to eat your food and make you unhappy and causes you emotional pain, you can also report them to the police. If your husband comes home late and causes you to be unhappy you can make a case at DOVSSU”

He also stated that women who refuse to give sex to their husbands should equally be reported.

“If your wife wears  jeans to sleep and causing you emotional abuse it’s an offence and you can report her to DOVVSU,” he stated.
