Finally Home and Dealing with Jetlag

by Steve Ray on February 2, 2006


After 20 days, 30 talks and 14 flights and sweating in the heat and humidity (usually about 89 degrees with 90% humidity) we are back home from Guam and the Philippines and settling in to “normal American life” again.

Thanks to all those who prayed for us and showed interest in our 4th Missionary Journey to the Philippines. Pray for this amazing nation that Catholics will arise to defend their faith and straighten out their country.

In these pictures you can see how we traveled about at times on a “tricycle” which is a motorcycle with a side car attached. They are everywhere! On this occasion we were on our way to speak at the small local Catholic Church on the island of Boracay.

It was mostly young people singing beautifully and vibrant for their faith. The bottom picture is our Farewell Dinner with the Defensores Fidei group, Bo Sanchez, Tim Staples, and a number of “well wishers“ and other sponsors.

It is good to be back home and charge our batteries before taking off again on February 11.

Cruci-fixin’s to Mock Our Lord

SPECIAL ALERT! NBC to mock the Crucifixion of Christ

NBC, fresh from giving us the anti-Christian The Book of Daniel, has decided to hit back at the Christian community by presenting an episode of Will and Grace which mocks the crucifixion of Christ.

On the April 13 edition of NBC's Will and Grace, Britney Spears will appear as a Christian conservative sidekick to Sean Hayes' homosexual character, Jack, who hosts his own talk show.

Jack's fictional network, Out TV, is bought by a Christian TV network, leading to Spears contributing a cooking segment called "Cruci-fixin's." To further denigrate Christianity, NBC chose to air it the night before Good Friday.

Click Here to read the Associated Press article.

NBC does not treat Jews, Muslins or other religions with such disrespect. Yet the network demonstrates a deep of hostility toward followers of Christ.

TAKE ACTION
