Our Founding Fathers Believed....

Today the government talks about separation of church and state and keeping Christianity and prayer out of the schools... but what the government has forgotten is that America's founders were devoutly Christian. George Washington, John Adams, Patrick Henry, and John Hancock for example all knew that God was important to the future of this country.. Our founding fathers based their decisions on biblical principles and believed that the future of our nation would govern themselves under the Word of Jesus Christ.

Benjamin Franklin - "I have lived, Sir, a long time, and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth - that God governs in the affairs of men, and if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without His notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without His aid?"

John Adams (2nd President) -- "Suppose a nation in some distant region should take the Bible for their only law book, and every member should regulate his conduct by the precepts there exhibited. Every member would be obliged in conscience, to temperance, frugality, and industry; to justice, kindness, and charity towards his fellow men; and to piety, love and reverence toward Almighty God... What a Utopia, what a Paradise would this region be."
excerpts taken from Rose Publishing

Our government has taken the stance that they know more than God... They have taken the stance that the Bible is old fashioned.. A great example is President Obama's comment about the sermon on the Mount and calling Jesus' sermon radical and not realistic.. Society has followed in the governments footsteps... not because society is bad.... but because many do not know better...

There is a vast difference between God's wisdom and man's.
The apostle Paul writes:Let no one deceive himself. If anyone among you seems to be wise in this age, let him become a fool that he may become wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, "He catches the wise in their own craftiness. 1 Corinthians 3:18-19 What this means is that The wisdom of this world does not coincide with God's wisdom. Paul is urging the Corinthian church to humble themselves because they are not wiser than God..

Walt Whitman spoke well of the contrast between knowledge and wisdom in his Song of The Open Road: Wisdom is not finally tested by the schools, Wisdom cannot be pass'd from one having it to another not having it, Wisdom is of the soul, is not susceptible of proof, is its own proof"

I fear for today's society..... I fear for the future of our children... Without God... there is nothing..

"For the Lord gives wisdom, and from his mouth come knowledge and understanding" Proverbs 2:6

Dear beloved in Christ, Kelly Dated: 08/24/09

Greeting to you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. I am writing this letter with the hope that you will threat the letter as genuine though we are not acquainted to each other. I assure you that in Jesus Christ we are all one, because of that I am going to share our burden and vision with you in faith. I am Mr. Nchumpemo Shitio working as a teaching missionary at Bible College in India, Vishakapatnam. I and my wife have two kids, a boy and a girl. Both my wife and I are from theological background. I did my M.Th (Master in Theology) and my wife did BD (bachelor in divinity), now we are serving in a bible college as teacher and also as a chaplain. We founded Galilee Welfare Ministry in 2007, and it is recognized under the State Government of Nagaland, India. We founded this Ministry with a burden to help the helpless, and to bless the homeless especially focusing on children, youth and old aged. Our state is Nagaland, under India. And in the country of India our state is symbolize as a Christian State. As we live under the Hindu Government our state is underdeveloped in everything and moreover we have a political problem with India. 80 percent of our state population still lives in rural area doing jhum cultivation for a living. Majority of the family cannot afford their children education as they live in a pathetic condition without sufficient needs for their living. And on the other hand many people are caught with HIV/AIDS through drugs and sex, and most of them died and left their children homeless. These lovely and beautiful children have become a victim of a community, as majority of the community regarded HIV/AIDS as SIN, so the communities ignore to help to those lovely and beautiful children, and the heinous things is that, the churches are not coming up to help this beautiful and lovely children. Therefore looking at this situation our ministry (Galilee Welfare Ministry) has started a project on CHILDREN HOME to enhance the living of poor children and children living with HIV/AIDS. We therefore, request you in the name of Jesus Christ to partner with us in helping those beautiful and lovely children. We request you to pray and think over it to join with us in order to help the poor and needy children in our state.
If you want to join with us then, we request you to make a time and a day to visit us or you can make enquire or ask any thing you want to know.
Together we can change the live of children. Let Jesus Christ be our master and our leader. Amen

In Christ service

Nchumpemo and Fanny Shitire
