For those of you who are planning to come to the Denver program I’m going to have this weekend, here is the flyer the church has prepared.
If you have a teenager, please send them over for the Saturday whole day program. We are going out of the city for the whole day! It is going to be a fun time!
If you are married, don’t miss the Sunday afternoon program. Your marriage won’t be the same again because I saw it many times for me to conclude that God loves to invite Himself in all marriage conferences. He will touch you and your marriage. ///
– – – to deal with the evil spirit when he strikes is by running to the True Shepherd of our soul, Jesus Christ; by seeking Him day and night as a deer pants, desires and seeks for the water! (Psalm 42:1; James 4:8)
After all, Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life! He is the Bread of Life! (John 14:6a, John 6:35 & 48) Without Him, there is no eternal life because He said, “No one comes to the Father except through Me.” John 14:6b ///
As you all might have already heard, there is a mourning vigilant across Ethiopia for three days starting today to remember the Ethiopian Christian martyrs who had fallen in the hands of ISIS. So, today, Tuesday, April 21, 2015, I and all the A4P ministers want to dedicate the Appeal for Purity Ministry Facebook page for that purpose only.
Not to mourn, which we all are doing right now, but also to celebrate the lives of our brothers who courageously stood on their faith and laid their lives down. We all are sad to see them depart from this life like this, at this age but God is in control of everything; and we know that the Bible says: “Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope.” (1 Thessalonians 4:13) We don’t grieve like the world because WE HAVE HOPE IN CHRIST JESUS!

ISIS put to death Ethiopian Christians because they refused to let go of their Christianity!
I was not aware of this news until someone flagged me few minutes ago. I want to use a beautiful and bright Ethiopian map, to remember our fallen brothers!
To those who died on the hands of ISIS, this is my message: Continue reading To All Our Christian Ethiopian Martyrs!
While my Berhan and I were cleaning up old boxes we put away in our basement for the last, God knows how many years, I found very old pictures, pictures we didn’t even know we had.
While my Berhan was too focused on cleaning up, I took the corner spot to look through those old pictures. I found all those goofy and funny looking pictures My Berhan and I took when I was a teenager and he was in his early 20th. Then I found pictures of all our pregnancies and delivery room pictures. It is just beautiful!
When I looked at some of these pictures, my eyes quickly welled up with tears. Flashes of good memories flooded my soul and I couldn’t rejoice. I actually felt very sad. Continue reading Rejoice always but on what?
“Though you grind a fool in a mortar,
grinding them like grain with a pestle,
you will not remove their folly from them.” Proverbs 27:22
Why not? Because change only comes from within!
But who is a fool?
“The way of fools seems right to them,
but the wise listen to advice.” Proverbs 12:15 ///
Few months ago, I announced one competition called “The Ester’s Kind of Modesty Competition” and more than 18 girls signed up for it from different countries. I asked the A4P fans to donate money for the cause so that the winner of this competition will receive cash. Continue reading Let Modesty Reign in our Churches!
Something is burning in my heart right now and I want to share it with you all.
I’m sure you all know by now that ISIS is slaughtering innocent human beings in the name of religion. And they record all their inhuman actions and post it on powerful social media such as Facebook and YouTube.
Do you think we need to write our comments on those pictures and videos? Do you know when we write our comments and share those posts; we help ISIS fulfill its agendas?
Do you know leaving a comment on a social media post introduces the post, the media, to hundreds and thousands of people? That is how social media work. Continue reading Pictures and videos going viral
All the time, God is so good!
God opened yet another door for Missy and Appeal for Purity Ministry (A4P) to minister His people!
Venue: Addis Kidan Evangelical Church
We’re so much excited! All praises, honors and glories be to our Savior and Lord Jesus Christ!
Missy will be ministering to teens, singles, married couples and whole congregation. Please pray for all involved in this program.
You don’t want to miss this program if you are in Colorado. Make sure you invite someone out there to come and join us in worshiping the Most High God.
Don’t you sometimes, secretly, wish if the Book of Ephesians chapter 5 goes up to verse 34 and says something like: “Husbands, when your wives come to you with a problem, don’t try to SOLVE their problem unless they specifically ask for it. Just LISTEN to their heart.” (I know the Bible is complete; I’m just saying)
You see, most men are naturally wired to solve a problem. When their wives come to them with a problem, they jump to solve it disregarding their wives’ heart; what their wives are really saying.
Let me give you one example: Continue reading Husbands, don’t solve your wife’s problem
