This article from Premier Christian News titled “AI event to connect all 2.5 billion Christians in simultaneous prayer and worship,” shares how Gather25, a global Christian conference led by a collection of ministries, will be hosting a 25-hour virtual and in-person event across six continents. In a world where AI technology is picking up speed, Jennie Allen, founder and visionary behind Gather25, saw the technology’s potential to bring God’s people closer. She said, “We are inviting all 2.5 billion people who love Jesus to come together to pray, to see stories of the Church and to commission them to become missionaries wherever they are.”

This article from Mission Network News titled “Bible and Books to Reach Drought-stricken Malawi,” reveals how numerous organizations are sending aid to the drought-stricken areas of Southern Africa. Along with drought, Malawi Christians are unfortunately facing persecution from extremist groups– many of them being arrested and martyred for their faith. Mission Cry is preparing to support their brothers and sisters in Christ by sending a shipping container full of Bibles and other helpful Christian resources. Jason Woolford, president of Mission Cry, invites fellow believers to support and sponsor their current outreach efforts to Malawi. “People need to pray, first and foremost,” Woolford said, “that we can get and continue to send the Word of God to places like Malawi.”

3. EDITORIAL: “Matt’s Epiphany: The God Who Renovates” by Matt Aroney

This article from Eternity News titled “Matt’s Epiphany: The God Who Renovates,” explains how the house that Matt Aroney and his wife purchased went from being a strenuous burden to a testimony of God’s goodness. After grumbling to the Lord about how stressful the renovation process was, Matt encountered James 4:6, which changed his entire perspective. What once was a tedious task became an introspective journey into “renovating” his soul. “Of course, understanding all of this takes time, practice and reflection,” Matt said. “Yet, we have the confidence of knowing, despite appearances, that something remarkable is happening.”
