Your host Robbie Gilmore. What fun we are going to have on this Thanksgiving weekend.

I'd kingdom pursuits as we have a very neat show lined up for you. Today we have Tom Furtado my saying that right Tom for once in my life I got anyways with the gospel for Asia's Christmas critter campaign.

I mean, how fun is that. And so this is one of the coolest things wait. We got to do this last spring but now we get to do it for Christmas. I mean, I'm so excited. I can't tell you that great. Amazing what what God, 12, 13 year ago like people.

That's just it really is. It's mind blowing to me how simple it can be and the first time I became aware of it was last spring, but it's really simple like for $11, and you can get a chicken right you can get a chicken for somebody and that's a live chicken. It's not like right because a live chicken to get you more. What you get all a pair of tickets and people well. Chicken that given to a local family in desperate need through the local church regardless of who they are and we just want black people and let them know that God loves the tangible way to do that will allow a family thing a widow with children now bellyache Belichick be able to provide for her family and story after story where one family may be limited in the long yellow they don't encumber very little. Like many banking can go to school you have no good health writing like that though we give them a very chicken and that allow that family to now pull themselves up. You may make 20 $30 to live on where they'll have them start out with their chicken delay. Keep the check valves on empty. We found one family directly. And not like you, but later they point where they had a chicken farm and then you know about month later they were chicken bugs | not only impact family that the whole community and done love of Jesus Christ to demonstrate his love for them and I got some coolest gospel phrases Christmas critter campaign and so is actually the gospel Asia.org FA.org is actually a nice way to do a GFA.org and then you'll see the Christmas critter campaign right there and so simple because we got alternative ways that we can do that but you know it's kingdom pursuits he got a have a riddle and so out of experiences, Tom, but here's your opportunity to hear some bad jokes and today's speaking of chickens so you're thinking like this from Carmen so if you used your stimulus this year to buy chickens for gospel phrases Christmas critter campaign you got your money for nothing in your checks for free.

Dire straits would tell you all that but anyway you may wonder. I'm sure you do, and why did Mozart kill all of his chickens see when he asked them it was the best composer of all. They all replied Mark. Mark Mark Mark and went very badly for him so the other day I ordered a chicken and egg on lineman. I let you guys know okay come to you in a minute. Which campaign.

So how about this one. Carmen, what kind of sneakers you may have wondered what kind of sneakers to chicken where chickens specific as its plurals become slicker stitch is what got me ideas on its you ready for this Reebok bop bop bop and maybe you know this one, but it's old, but I like it anyway. What day the chickens hate the most frightened. This is a form so I say a really neat Bible riddle for you today and we got some great prizes. We give away. So what city in the Bible is the home of hateful birds. What city in the Bible is the home of hateful birds and apparently Alfred Hitchcock visited there is a question and if you can answer that garment on what the women yelling great books from the kingdom prize of the kingdom pursuits prize vault is loaded with all these authors that we've had over the days dues call us at 866-348-7884 and not only will you win, but you're going to get a big high-five from Rob because this is really hard when compared to most my riddles. This one is a little bit more specific. What city in the Bible is the home of hateful, hateful, birds another were hateful birds but there are apparently in this book of the Bible is described so getting back to the gospel phrases critter campaign Christmas critter campaign taught how long have you been with gospel fresh my 20 year ministry. Wow, I don't like prickly time.

I want to mention one thing Robbie.

We love working with Truth Network.

We actually created a website for your list, go to this campaign, though we have a website called critter campaign doddle critter campaign doddle all one word and Truth Network listeners to go and be a part of this campaign this year so critter campaign.org.org that's easy. I can remember that so that's when you go if you want to. And again. The neat thing when you go to critter campaign.org is there's lots of critters besides just chickens.

Finally, lots of meat. I love the way you guys really thought through some of these things like a bicycle right for missionaries really important about bicycle allowed Mary to. He can now cover you. Our route many and they have to walk all I can now increase the coverage of their ministry and wheelchair cry Administered so many people will triple the area by our solid myself personally on the field.

Take care and get my bike guard.

I really think you're anything you got married on the bike all 11. Another guy hanging on the back like we get there made so the gospel for Asia right that's it just to critter campaign.org is a place to go. I got so much more. I believe me the stories and the items in all the different things that go into this this Christmas outfront is that we have callers tried to determine about the hateful birds. I know you're concerned about my.

I'm very Mark Hyman Lehman to remind you for your spiritual Jesus given as the love your neighbor as yourself. I wonder these were using the vernacular today instead of saying it yourself when you said get over yourself. Love your neighbor. That's what he met or not, is exactly what you need, and the truth is, nothing is easier than loving people. I go so far as to say even more fun when they're unlovable. That's the best they don't even know what to do with you when you look at everyone through the eyes of a loving God who loves then you see them receiving lost deception you would do everything you can loving them.

In Jesus name, so they will want what you have your level always move them closer to Jesus did help share your the whole country is on a quest for some drugs and sex and we want something we don't quite know what it is and it's a listen we don't find Billy Graham says something to look for it in religion without Christ will not say so, so, just so long to say when you receive Christ, the Holy Spirit comes to live in your life produces you not, but it gives you joy and enable you to build if you put your trust in your faith in him. Christ gives you the real things of life more visitors and find peace with God.find peace with God.net were the Billy Graham evangelistic Association. It is fitting and appropriate that we honor those who have shaped our lives by their leadership hi, I'm Chuck Swindoll listen to the words of Hebrews 13 seven. Remember, those who led you who spoke the word of God to you and considering the outcome of their way of life imitate their faith. The original term rendered imitate is the word from which we get our English term mimic the in verse 17 obey your leaders and submit to them, for they keep watch over your souls. Remember, obey, submit, these are all words of great respect and personal action mastering visit Insight for living's website and insight.org they are so blessed to have with this Tom Furtado gospel phrases Christmas critter campaign which were partnering with them. The Truth Network critter campaign.org but right now I got your Yolanda in Greensboro who she thinks she knows what city in the Bible is the home of hateful birds you thought that here kingdom pursuits good morning. I am excited to hear about these hateful birds, right that's right Babylon. You are exactly right. Those Babylonians and their hateful birds might my mother with my mother is not afraid of much but she was scared to death of birds that said that's that was it.

You we could just, you know. And so, in the movie the birds came out you know it was it was it was no way in the world here and get my mother say that if you see me Yolanda don't see you won't seriously I would never go to Babylon because from what I understand now from revelations 18 right in the last day. Birds are to be hateful and that that's not all.

Thank you for calling women today so will get your book out there and I'm a push back at home at Carmen and you discussed that and I'm so grateful he called thou thank you God bless all right on well.I'm pretty sure your chickens are not hateful. I think they're not from their loving love.they do not from Babylon I'm sure Jerusalem chickens Bible all really so you know, but really, that when I love I really do is the if you go to write your critter campaign.org you can see there's just a whole menu like a mosquito net for only $10 or blanket and and and you guys really thought through like a winter clothing package right for people that are in their winter clothing in an and so it's really really cool that we can get specific with our gift to say you know is really not a nice thing to think that this is exactly what I'm providing right where you now get colder world. People just don't have the simple things like like a blanket and the last time I was I was over we had young young kids who were part of our home they would go out in the early morning leadership find people sleeping on the street and just give a blanket to an end and Jesus loves is amazing to be how you can literally save a life of the blankets really care what with just some some clothing working area like all were obviously, it gets really cold and provide the necessary things like blanket called sweater that just to keep people warm. I see people walking the stolen. We try to provide it, but clothing can a court, pretty sure my wife could sit we went yesterday. It was like 30 winds blowing 20 million.

She does need to cut his cheek. It's unbelievable that you know there's different fronts but obviously this is it's really helpful to have those in. I mean really helpful, but one of them really really neat things like if you have $100 that you think about giving for Christmas. I mean, what an amazing thing you could really, really, really do not just change a life changer village help a lot of people find out about Jesus by providing a sewing machine right is what you can do is like phenomenal in another you. You can you can start a whole industry really. I was over there a great time I walk in love and lady who had three children. She was left. She was living at the shack and what it would rain. But kids are you on her lap and we were able to give her a slot machine and she started tailoring the local community and it was enough for children to give her children the medicine that they needed so that they could actually go to the local school, and of course are our local children sent to explore their part of that letter. It lifted her out of poverty telling what she's tailored so that she doesn't just band hello Ben, I it's amazing how that happened. The story I found out I was the one lady just children. Her husband did know Jesus alcoholic. She had money for him, but she didn't really give her a thought machine with 18 this is through the local church with an 18 month to start a business and I love the ladies working for all train by her all doing tailoring. And then we become part of the local church or loan on Jesus. Her husband came to the Lord and started a barber shop next door at the revolution. I bet their family and community.

That's the impact of some of them have for hundred dollars for all manual obviously you want electricity to be on or off day so they're able to make that huge impact for hundred dollars that I was day and we don't know at the followers of Christ we sometimes really, I myself I don't know what the impact. My prayers might backbite by giving so many others that do that.

What impact you have until you get to heaven, you know, we can toss the crown before Jesus Christ, along with all the people that we've impacted through our prayers, giving and or sacrificing and now it's going to be a part. There's no doubt in my mind. No doubt again were talking about the gospel phrases critter campaign and the neat thing is incredible partnership with the Truth Network say discovered critter campaign.org critter campaign.org and Mary are missing this whole menu smorgasbord of things that you can pray about cigar but what would you have me give in and I don't think it you know I was another radio show I do is, animal rescue, and I had this man had been in northern India and talking about you know that caste system essentially the single women that your talk about the been internally by the husband. If they're untouchable they have no way of supporting themselves right well yet get great pretty dire. I we have stories on our website that talk about how desperate they could be common in many many times. You know they actually had either committing suicide or we want to just rescue the it's amazing to see what God could do through this week. We had one opportunity to minister to the red light district area we were able to see over 100 of these red light workers come to know our Lord taught them how to tailor get glasses game sewing machine and their kids in one of our child centered. Next graded child support center just children. They see the love of Christ could do to change life that's really what it's all about how much Christ loves them how much we want to speak with a eternity like we actually went back to be helpful to have their phone numbers on that website we created for Truth Network listeners right@thetopofthatcampaign.org 85557146288555714628 and that they call that number that network (as cited and we want to do all we can to make an impact.

This Christmas obviously if you go up there is one thing on the list that right now is typically geared toward providing food and medical supplies for people during the Irish impacted ages so badly rotted nation. As you know that people people are dying from people all started because it was locked out. No, no work, not just you can multiply at what time we went, and you won't find out over there so we want what we do provide food and clean water, and medical supply that people who are locked down. People can't get out. Living still on the street have the work is nothing to do for two dollars could buy people to meet it Good right at the mother thing you know that all dryly you actually have permission for the local authorities go without areas to people who are locked out behind closed doors. But check it out and it's amazing to see how many families we can affect the family for two weeks but collectively see that on website. They realized what that could make during the really renders time over there since no time. Well, we got to go to another break when we come back. We've got more on this critter campaign again. The phone number you want to call them is a 555716288555714628 will be right back. Mrs. Engram lots with daily life for daily living.

You feel like a failure. Have you been discouraged in your Christian life you Christian leadership to the point of quitting. You feel you're just not cut out for this sort of thing. What a blessed relief to be reminded that God knows you and me. In fact he knows this so well that John 15 five says that, apart from him. We can do nothing. We don't have to prove ourselves to God or worry about disappointing will have to earn his respect to deserve his blessing. He created us in the first place.

The Bible says he knows that we are. He remembers that were just dust. Dust infused with the very breath of God. Listen to me. Praise God, he has a place in his kingdom. Because Jesus makes heaven available to failure. Like Peter, like you and like me, Mrs. Engram, lots I am Johnny and I love the smell of the wood fire with the scent of my neighbors pine trees always evoked the best of memories. Well guess what you and I have a chance to remind God's son, the Lord Jesus himself is chapter 2 says we are the aroma of Christ to God. To me that's astounding sure. As Christians we want. The aroma of Christ to others, but there's much more to it because when you trust God when you obey him with a happy heart. When you endure hardship, not a hint of complaint you mind God the father of the consummate sacrifice and devotion of his precious son Jesus, talk about a high honor and talk about a really great reason to trust and obey God today right friend B Franklin sweet smelling savor thing and obedient and thus being God's sweet memory of his son. It's time no effort with Janet Mefford. Have you ever thought of yourself as a caterpillar likely not the old Scottish preacher Thomas Guthrie once use the creeping worm is an illustration of God's grace as the caterpillar undergoes its metamorphosis, he noted, it becomes a wind and painted butterfly and this change along with its old skin casts off its old habits and instincts and delights in the new duties which it is called to perform is as much like the center, in whom God's grace works metamorphosis. His nature is now so accommodating to his redeemed state it would be less content to return to his old polluted pleasures in the beautiful butterfly. We desire to be stripped of its silken wings.

What a wonderful transformation occurs when we sinners put our trust in Jesus, the Bible says it best in second Corinthians chapter 5 if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation the old has passed away. Behold, the new has come for more generous perspective. Wasn't Janet never today online Janet Mefford.com really Russian and uses it to build the kingdom today were so blessed to have with us Tom Coronado with gospel for Asian hospital phrases Christmas critter campaign, which very cool if you go to critter campaign.org that's critter campaign.org it's that's it's kind of been custom-made for the Truth Network and it's like going shopping like you got a cart Carmen so you can sit there and you okay I can get a Bible for $10 a chicken for 11.

I can get the code package for forts and then that's all up and you can you can check out with 65 or whatever it is that that you feel like you want to give to the critter campaign and and you can actually go shopping right Tom. You know it made people debate going shopping yet, late in running computer with it. You don't give a grab another whatever you know about the Bible, but I think the on on her behalf that we could Christmas card door thing eight pigs were given to all someone in Asia on your behalf. I love this women's literacy fund when what is the women's that's $25.

What is literacy fund that part of work were doing over there right now because you know just the way women are treated in many different areas of the world. Obviously pretty bad in those areas sometimes pre-birth to death.

You know over there and I know those cultures. Sometimes it if the husband died. You know the woman is ostracized, whether she paid her 80 and it's really bad.

Of course, so many times do not know their biggest group in a way to school at all, although that is changing some of what we do is through the local church.

We teach them the teach them using the word of God out of the gelato right teach and let you know able to re-contract. Simple things like like doing the math I don't go, don't get ripped off by a local store dealer will make but I go by their groceries or whatever you buy correctly, and it's amazing to see how you literacy lift again powers that the bottom already powers them to be able to read right and you know that that is valid and also also their children and find the guys that we have about of the women's literacy groups throughout so many of our churches now are happening and it starts to spread the keep teaching more women they teach other women and it just it just spread like wildfire in a way to get so excited now able to read right by part.

Obviously the churches are now able to sink a new kind of take and send the one of these churches in Asia are are are are fellowship art, but no, we want to impact the whole community are after their will no doubt go into an area that maybe never know Christ ever heard his name sometimes obviously you know Jesus Christ you know your beer, your friend limit his village by the next village and all that happened was unbelievable but it happened and what you do is you talk about the love of God and the face of persecution. Those people get excited what God is doing and through the tangible way that we communicate got the bike through the critter campaign. Through it all just gifts that we get through just ministering to people and seeing how God responses that eventually is able to gather people together. We normally through a prayer group and from that prayer group grows into a small community small church and then were able to I get to go down the list you can and $40,000 and actually build the church IN Asia.

What we have to do is just pray. Church pray communities pray get your congregation to pray and start brand Walden floor and all that I go to church so that the bathtub and others that are no really nice, but most people develop more ambitious, do you like it. It's very culturally relevant. Like all the services or necklace of drought the local language and were able to minister and spread the love of God that it back so many people sometimes leave and what actually leaders will start a radio program that shared love of God Christ through their local language.

There's my goodness. 200 languages 12+ dialect just got it so we want everybody here about the love of God, and after calling a passion and we do it to so many different ways. You know through the critter campaign through the Christmas catalog campaigns that we do. One way to tangibly indicate God's love the semiprecious people. We do clean water when we establish a fellowship but we try to do is have a college uses well drilled in that community usually at church property and this is clean water that is open to everyone and because little water. The water is the source scares so many areas of the world, Africa, Asia working out well and that will ecology as well as just abort the ball while dug down deep to dictate water and we got all the water of life. Be there.allowing anybody want to get clean water can walk sometimes 2030 climbers whatever to get clean. Wyman is crazy farce about the walk along the long way and then walked back and forth.

Water this way the water is clean. It was disease-free that would allow the children not to have dysentery and so many other diseases that come from dirty water. I made so many people there get their water source or social water. Ponder the small lake where there and and and I hire one star will teach what area where there was a source of water. Their water buffaloes. If you're planning an official mentor and there it was the law it in the water law bathroom on that fund. The log by log. We don't go take a walk and based on understand the we put in Jesus.

Well put in. We call files that water filters three dollars a month on our list as well and not her daughter to build one and three that were able like the one you every 20 seconds. Some child world water board is preventable. We want to bring clean water to something people doing the love of Christ even get healthy and able to go to school able to work and lift themselves out of poverty. Something like clean water due to its it's really really cool to see all the different ways that we can take part in an obviously one of the big ways that we can take partisan prayer and get it in by going through by going to the critter campaign.org you can get it because each one of these items you guys did a good job of of really explaining why what and all these things which really give give you sort of a prayer list of like wow I didn't realize you know that this could have such an impact and in others right now somebody you know that is in desperate need of a blanket are in desperate need of a go to her in order water Buffalo.

I mean, so I saw water buffalo on the limits and expensive $460 what you what is a water buffalo do for us yet water bubble like track that are able to plow their able to roll the water will provide milk to provide transportation provide fuel. Obviously, because they get done with it so it's only ways a lot of people's lives. You may not may not be as well. I got to go to another ring that I thought about the fact that they plow man, a water buffalo gets going that's that's amazing.

So we got one more little segments with coming up with gospel phrase again. We want to give out that number one more time and it is to find it 85557146288555714628 and when spring comes into himself when he wakes up on that Christmas morning and he is reborn different man Allison Pittman on Focus on the Family mid he goes to church. Then he goes to his nephews house, his nephew who had invited him to Christmas every single year and he goes and takes care of the Cratchit see the Cratchit as this beautiful family and nothing they have this idea that they Christmas anything decorations and all of that, you know, if you don't have something to share it with. And I know that there people don't have somebody to share right they need to reconcile. Maybe some relationship. Each house to reach out to each other. You're more from Allison and family minute, here's Dr. Charles Stanley keeping believers in touch with God pays the Lord Jesus Christ uses a piece that will protect you guard your mind thinking those things that you should not think in order to preserve your peace. We began to think things we should not think something happens to is this piece supposed to be here and there. Often all up and down in and out.

No, it is the VA sustaining continuous pieces that mean that they'll never come a time when you won't have it no because there will be those difficulties.

There will be those trials that will be those heartaches boating simply saying is this, that standing at the door them on the now heart is at peace that passes all understanding that will keep guard for help from God's word is in touch with Dr. Charles Stanley, InTouch.org when we hear how God takes your passion is to build the kingdom and were so blessed to have Tom court condo with us today with court, with gospel for Asia and there critter campaign critter campaign.org with the Truth Network unit were partnering with them this Christmas is my may want to so many cool opportunities like Tom did mention that that that someday, when heaven will be celebrating what God did through your prayers through your guests through so many different ways and you know one of the things it's on thereto Tom is that you literally sponsor a child for a year and what goes in the back part of our program that Sponsorship program for many many years and no there so many community where children are no forgotten left to just because the family being a situation. They have to bag food bank with no family but maybe someone else and unfortunately sometimes children get caught up in traffic and are used in that way that that all situation and the office on the movies You can't get an idea that what we do is we we we establish a bridge of hope that you are a child center that people can sponsor child per year and what that does that child spend five days a week. You know after school we we we put them to go to the local school and spent time with and we we provide tutoring provide food, which allows the wards off starvation because we did not have nutrition now they have vitamin we give them free healthcare to try check out the diagnosis, treatment policy, we want illiteracy and so we know we we equip families but we also but they sure to read right.

We have to read write ethical teach English, which is always to the language complex throughout the world and equips them to you to go in the higher learning. And of course always be clean water and illegally we also minister the parents we provide hygiene training and get the other.

There they that they don't miss being slow about his love and honor the name of Jesus Christ. I've been to the child and it don't but if you are now learning English in their love of Jesus praying for the food and the other there there affecting their families. There affecting their parents limit their we have some places where the kids know may not have parents at all. Maybe little with some distant relatives or something.

We take care of as well during the day. I was the one thing to wear this one child actually brother and sister. There was an alcoholic but we didn't we take a minute today feel obliged to give up fruit plate to express themselves and teach them what it needs, how much God loves and you actually sponsor a kid to be able to be a part of one of the centers at their loved now would be doing it now 15 years at least give gone on to become a missionary got on to go to seminary that got to go to school, medical schools, and it just amazing to speed impact that got to get we may not be did kids still have, but we have some people that have got over and visited the children just are so impacted by the love of the kid and I tell you what it makes you different I get rid of Quickstart my when my daughter was 15 she will now. She says you know that it was great to see the kids in the center. But what really affect get standing outside. I couldn't commit because either their parents were against the or we didn't have room and it broke her heart. And so we we want to see as many kids possible in these programs just love all these kids love other parent. All the name of Jesus Christ. They just both of which you I such an impactful thing. When I went I went to put teen challenge to Jamaica's fermented of boot camp over there and there they had apparently because of the very doing other things that that when the special-needs child is born into some essentially thrown to the curb and there's an orphanage is a go pick up his children, but because the orphanages are so overwhelmed and all the kids are never come out of her crib and since there's nobody to take care of him.

They never taught how to walk that takes longer with the special-needs child or they never talked how to use the bathroom and all those things and so there's so much potential there for life that just isn't met because you know there's so many opportunities around the world and here's here's folks that are actually picking up the ball and run with it and so you can get a chance to get in on this and see it. Pray for you and I'm sure you see that kind of thing to over there right Tom, the girl child so many times the culture there side and it is heartbreaking and you got Margie does something about that number again it's 855571288555714628 critter campaign.org.
