2 Hours+ Southern Gospel Music Recorded On WSOF in 1997.

Filed under Christian MusicShare!  

Over 2 hours of old-fashioned gospel music from radio station WSOF Madisonville, Kentucky, USA. That music has the joy of the Lord in it. These really are the wonderful sounds of faith. If you are down, this music will lift you up and get you shouting and praising the Lord Jesus Christ!
Recorded on cassette tape back in 1997.

This radio station still broadcasts the same type of old-fashioned gospel music today. Check it out:

They can also be found on the tunein app. This is what I use to listen to them. I am glad they have not changed to Christian rock. I am thankful that there are Christian people out there that faithfully abide in the old time way. I was blessed to be at the church in 1998. I was visiting from Germany. As we drove on they played The Steele’s with “We Want America Back” and I remember the goose bumps today. I just wanted to shout and clap my hands and praise the Lord.

Nigeria’s Middle Belt Report: Attacks by Boko Haram and Fulani Militants Continue in June 2018

Filed under PersecutionShare!  

07/13/2018 Washington, D.C. (International Christian Concern) www.persecution.org – Boko Haram and Fulani militants continued their campaign of violence throughout Nigeria’s Middle Belt region in June, during which more than 350 people were killed. June witnessed one of the largest attacks by Fulani militants in nearly a decade. International Christian Concern (ICC) recorded that Fulani militants killed more than 230 people during an attack on Southern Plateau State in late June. Some reports claim that this attack was a brutal act of retaliation after Berom farmers killed five Fulani herdsmen.

To date, ICC has reported on the deaths of more than 1,350 Christians in Nigeria’s Middle Belt in 2018. This is a conservative number, as there have been other reports as high as 6,000 killed, as reported by the Christian Association of Nigeria. Though these statistics vary greatly, which is reflective of the confusion and chaos surrounding the conflict, they are important because they show the stark contrast and rise in violence compared to previous years. For comparison, approximately 900 people were killed in similar conflicts in 2017.
