Friday's Mad Mad World!

Greetings children of the Most High!

Here's another list of important events that happened recently around the world. There are always so many, but I try and choose the ones that seem the most important. I'm not trying to frighten you. However, I do believe the Lord wants us to pay attention and be knowledgeable about world events for three reasons.

  1. Prayer
  2. Preparation
  3. Evangelism

So, with that in mind, here we go!
