What do you do when life takes your dreams and leaves you with pain? As a young couple, George and Cindy Brown’s dreams for a happy family included having several children. Their first child, Eric, was born without complication during their third year of marriage.

The Browns: George, Eric & Cindy

Several years later Cindy became pregnant again, however, this time problems developed. A sonogram revealed that there was excessive amniotic fluid, not just outside the baby where it belonged, but also around its internal organs. After six weeks of bed rest and medication, their second child was born prematurely and died after only one day. The doctor said the problem which took little Heather’s life was very rare, so they tried twice more to add to their family. However, those babies developed the same problem and despite much prayer and medical care, they were both stillborn during the second trimester of Cindy’s pregnancies. After the stress and heartache of fighting for and losing

by Lisa Smith

three children, the Browns did not want to try again. The Brown’s story, however, doesn’t end with broken dreams. When Eric was little, George and Cindy became involved in youth ministry. The Browns opened their home and hearts to those young people, and shared with them the struggles and sadness of losing their children. Afterwards, several expressed that it was good for them to see their leaders go through such tragedy without giving up hope. Indeed, it was amazing how God enabled George and Cindy to grieve appropriately without wallowing in sorrow and becoming bitter.

Christian Business Directory There were times the Browns felt angry for having to go through all the anxiety, disappointment, and grief of fighting a losing battle to keep those three babies alive. They expressed their feelings to God in prayer, yet chose to let go of their dreams and trust that His plan was good, even when it was difficult and painful. Looking back at the experience, they see how God cared for them through the loving support of others. Praying in the midst of their pain and struggles brought them closer to one another and enabled them to experience God’s peace that is beyond understanding. They found they could treasure and enjoy the little time they had with each baby. Now, knowing that God is taking care of their children in heaven, they continue to care for all the children God has put in their lives – whether it is Eric or the teens from different churches throughout the community who come to their house weekly for TFC (Teens for Christ).

These kids know that they, too, are treasured and enjoyed for however long they are a part of George and Cindy’s family. The Browns have a drawer where they keep the cards and letters the teens have sent them during the 26 years they have been involved in youth ministry. It is a reminder that God’s ways are not always our ways, but we can trust Him to bring us through any trial in life. George and Cindy hold Teens for Christ in their home in New Hartford, NY. George is Executive Director of TFC and Chairman of the Elders at Hope Alliance Church, where Cindy is the Treasurer. Their son, Eric, is pursuing a degree in Pastoral Ministry at Nyack College.

We believe Christian businesses should be just as competitive as other businesses in price, merchandise, and service. As believers support one another, a portion of what Christian businesses are paid goes back into the Lord’s work in the form of tithe and offerings. By supporting these local businesses, you, in effect, increase your giving; businesses gain a customer; and the work of the local church is therefore advanced. The businesses and professional people supporting this issue come from various denominations throughout our local area. Although we differ on minor doctrine, we all agree that our personal faith in Jesus Christ and His Word is the basis of our fellowship.

Mike’s ordeal creates compassion in him for those whose lives are broken and whom society has cast aside. Their suffering may not be as obvious as Noah’s, but it is just as real.

According to the Athens Review, an atheist who had threatened to

sue a Texas county over the display of a nativity scene says he is “completely flabbergasted” that Christians from that same county provided him financial assistance for a medical problem. “

My wife and I had never had a Christian do anything nice for us,” said Patrick Greene. “Just the opposite.” Greene, an activist with a long history of bringing lawsuits related to public displays of Christian imagery, threatened to sue Henderson County if county official allowed a nativity scene to be placed on the courthouse lawn next Christmas.

help. Cry told her pastor, Rev. Eric Graham, who contacted Greene and inquired about how his church could help with the surgery. Greene told Graham he had a more immediate need.

“There is no way for me to go up there if I’m blind,” said Greene, who lives in San Antonio, nearly 300 miles from the Henderson County courthouse. Greene said he has no insurance to pay for an operation that might save his sight, and can’t even pay for the exam that will confirm the diagnosis. “Why waste the money if I can’t do anything about it,” he told the local newspapers. When Jessica Cry, a member of Sand Springs Baptist Church in Athens, read on the Internet about Greene’s troubles, she felt compelled to

National Day of Prayer.

“I said, if you really want to contribute something to help, we need groceries,” Greene said. “I told my wife about it,” Greene said. “They’re going to help us?” Karen asked. Greene thought that if anything, he’d see $50, maybe $100. A few days later, the Christians made good on their promise, and sent a check for $400. “I said I can’t believe it,” Greene said. “I thought I was in the Twilight Zone.”

Greene is so amazed by the generosity of the Christians in Henderson County, he’s sharing the story through the media, and is thinking about writing a book. “I’m going to call it the real ‘Christians of Henderson County, Texas,’” Greene said. “These people are acting like what the Bible says a Christian does.” “I’m dedicating the book to my wife, the young lady who started the idea, and Reverend Graham.” Why it Matters: Jesus commanded us to love our enemies and pray for those who persecute us (Matthew 5:44). But far too often we get

bogged down in fighting faux cultural battles (like the “War on Christmas”) and forget that the “enemies” our Lord commands us to love are also our neighbors. When we take the time to show concern and charity, as the Christians in my former home of Henderson County have done with Mr. Greene, it can melt the hardest of hearts. “I have decided to show my appreciation to the Christian community for all their help, and I am going to buy a star for the top of the Nativity scene,” says Greene, “ You people can figure out how to plug it in.” Joe Carter is an Editor at The Gospel Coalition (Reprinted with permission.)

IS THERE ANY DOUBT? FROM OUR NDP COORDINATOR Three decades ago a young minister rose to the occasion announcing that the Lord was diligently at work in the midst of the church; not only the church, but a much broader population. The Lord had alerted him to several phases in a sort of awakening: “I will purge…” “I will restore…” & “I will rebuild…” much like reconstruction after war. After much criticism & chiding, events that followed for sure indicated how much he was believed – he left his post for other work. Little do we realize how vital prayer is until we face devastation. For many who have no time for praying, we remain curious how quickly we turn to a minister or to a church at a time of devastation or loss. Nine-eleven (9/11/01) is our generation’s poster child for this reality, and look what all has come of our effort to comfort, encourage or just pray with the grieved. How well equipped were we then? Many who tried to help came up short waking to their own lack of crisis readiness. When we take a good look at the number of disciplines that have been exposed & addressed by public opinion if not by the courts, we can’t help but know that lawlessness can destroy anyone, even flourishing churches. Friend, God is at work – when the mill grinds slowly we think it was only minor & fleeting. As a reader you can recall political scenarios addressed by a mere apology allowing the dishonest heart to go on serving in their capacity – purging is not finished. And thus we have no difficulty generalizing to education, religion, business, family, media, military… Friend, we seem to be in the dark when we pray,“Thy kingdom come, thy will be done…” even in crisis. What an honor to observe the restoration of lives & of souls overcome by appetites & misfortune. When we think someone is down for the count & they discover that old things can pass away, lives, institutions & relationships are given hope – all because someone found the answer, prayer.Yes, it only takes one to start – to speak such a word,“I will restore…” We’re certainly up against the tides of time when we look out upon the aftermath of war.We might feel that our day should not have had any exposure to war, yet minds within our entire nation are altered with the thought of injured or deceased loved ones. Homes have been torn apart by such disaster. I’ve often thought how having heard of God at work in such a manner, do we really believe or even care what God is doing? We’re seeing revolution in countries & in governments & with all our exposure it becomes easy to just leave it to them as though we cannot be bothered. Friend, it is time for revolution to reach those of us who pray, calling ourselves children of God & knowing that it is part of God’s plan to rebuild & that through us. Can we doubt any longer that God’s dwelling is with man? David G Schlaegel, Utica NY – NDP Coordinator Amen

Dr. David Jeremiah – NDP Honorary Chairman

Heavenly Father, Every good gift and perfect gift comes from You. You are a faithful God and Your mercy endures forever.You have promised to bless the nation that trusts in You. Our currency proclaims “In God We Trust,” but in our culture we are far from You. In the words of the prophet Daniel, “We have sinned and committed iniquity, we have done wickedly and rebelled, even by departing from Your precepts and Your judgments.” We come before You once more, seeking Your forgiveness and mercy. You, O God, are our only hope… Hear our prayer and, for Your honor’s sake, shine Your face upon this nation. Give our leaders the desire to seek Your wisdom and the courage to follow Your guidance… and watch over the men and women of our armed forces as they sacrifice for the cause of freedom. We give You thanks for all You have done for us, and we earnestly pray that You will help us become, once again, a nation whose God is the Lord.

Closing Remarks - Rev. Dr. Tom Hast Pastor of Bartlett Baptist Church

In the name of Your Son, and our Savior, we pray this prayer.
