Written by Angelique Watkins

Whenrepparttar storm arose onrepparttar 126976 Sea of Galilee, it often came without warning. In Mark 4:35-41 and Matthew 8:23-27 there are Biblical Words of Comfort and Promises.

A little history on The Book "Gospel of Mark": The Gospel was written underrepparttar 126977 sanction of Peter. He scarely refers torepparttar 126978 Old Testament andrepparttar 126979 word law does not once occur. In some reference books it is stated that this Gospel was meant for for use amongst Gentiles. It was written about 30 years afterrepparttar 126980 death of Jesus Christ. It isrepparttar 126981 history ofrepparttar 126982 war of Jesus against sin and evil inrepparttar 126983 world duringrepparttar 126984 time that he dwelt as a Man among men.

Jesus Disciples went with HIM in taking a ship ride torepparttar 126985 other side ofrepparttar 126986 Sea of Galilee. Jesus goes below deck and goes to sleep. A Storm comes up right away and HIS Disciples were threatened. HIS Disciples let a panic attack take them over and called out to Jesus, "Teacher do you not care that we are perishing?" Jesus arises from sleep and speaks torepparttar 126987 wind and sea, "Peace, Be Still!"

Iraqi Christians inrepparttar Gap!

As we think about this war from an eternal perspective,repparttar 126975 all-important question is "what willrepparttar 126976 war in Iraq mean forrepparttar 126977 Gospel of Christ Jesus?" We believe that this war in Iraq will give an open door forrepparttar 126978 Gospel. The Gospel is what will heal and freerepparttar 126979 spirit of man to worshiprepparttar 126980 true and living God, Christ Jesus! The Gospel isrepparttar 126981 "bread of life"—the only answer torepparttar 126982 hunger and hopelessness of mankind. We want to bringrepparttar 126983 "bread of life" torepparttar 126984 Iraqi people who have suffered for so many years.

God has been preparing a people to bring His Word torepparttar 126985 Iraqi people. Sincerepparttar 126986 first Gulf War, thousands of Iraqis have become refugees in Jordan. God has used this "Exodus" experience from their homeland to draw about 600 of them intorepparttar 126987 Kingdom of God. Many of these 600 Iraqi Christians in Jordan are trained to carryrepparttar 126988 Gospel to their homeland and ready to go whenrepparttar 126989 doors are opened. They need our help.

How can you help? In two main ways: prayerfully and financially. Prayerfully, you can help by praying for our Iraqi brother and sisters in Christ. Pray for wisdom, protection and provision. Financially, you can help by giving to The Iraqi Bread of Life Project in order to supportrepparttar 126990 families that will be returning to Iraq. Your financial gift will be used to help withrepparttar 126991 food, travel, and ministry needs (like literature and Bibles) ofrepparttar 126992 Iraqi Christian families.
