Philippians 4:19 “And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.”
Absalom’s children are furious that he chose to become a Christian and be baptized and even plotted to have him kicked out of his house. When Absalom and his wife moved to a new village, their grass hut was burned to the ground and they lost all of their belongings.
Absalom praises God for his provision even in the midst of trial. He stated, “God will give us what we need, when you are for God, He provides for your daily needs.”

Jane from Senegal found herself pregnant as a teenager and so somehow gave herself an abortion. A few years later, she was pregnant again. This time she decided to keep the baby, but in order to avoid shaming the family, her parents forced her to abort. She was 5 months along, and the baby was born alive. Her mother showed her the baby and then buried it alive. And Jane lived in the grief and anger and bitterness that followed this event.

God, we love you! As your Church, help us do what it takes to let the people of Niger grasp the Good News that Jesus' cross was the one place in the world's history in which your Father's justice AND mercy were simultaneously fulfilled as He was marred beyond human semblance, despised, rejected, sorrowful, acquainted with grief, smitten, afflicted, pierced, crushed, chastised, and anguished (Isaiah 52-53) so that WE don't have to be.Read
