Activist Faith

In a little weekend inspiration, I wanted to share a powerful story form a recent news headline.

An American missionary whose wife was slain by suspected drug smugglers
says he wants to continue her work in Mexico despite the dangers.

Sam Davis told The Associated Press on Wednesday that he prays for the
gunmen who killed his wife two weeks ago. He doubts they’ll be brought
to justice.

Read the full AP story here.

I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to
rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the
unrighteous.” -Jesus in Matthew 5:44-45, NIV
