Volunteer Training November, 2014

December 1st, 2014

"I trust you, your family and friends had a wonderful Thanksgiving. God has blessed America with an abundance of food, cheap energy, and safe drinking water. Because God has truly been good to us, we enjoy comfortable homes in safety, at least for now. If we continue to turn our backs on what made this Nation great, we will suffer the same fate the Christians are now suffering in the Middle East. In my mission trip to the Middle East, I witnessed firsthand the horrible, evil acts of ISIS. The beheadings, rape, kidnappings and destruction of homes, and even their churches were destroyed....."

I have returned from the Middle East after seeing firsthand the true face of Islam, and it is evil.  Brother Daniel Scalf was unable to  join me due to major health problems, and Brother Frazad  was not able to meet me in Turkey. So I was on my own, relying on our Lord for direction.  Acting in faith I was able to cross the border, before getting caught and forced back. Christians and minority Kurds are being slaughtered daily.  I witnessed The Turkish Air force bomb Kurds, and US bombing is accomplishing very little to protect Christians and Kurds from the ISIS Army of evil, under the direction of the powers of Hell.   Not so long ago there were hundreds of thousands of Christians in Iraq. Now Christians are hiding in three locations and they need emergency assistance.  Only a very few Christian Relief Organizations are providing aid and they need our help.  CDR is committed to providing life saving aid, with your prayerful support.     Many of you have generously given financial support and your prayers made it possible for my safe return.   There is much more to be accomplished.  Farzad   reporting from Kurdistan was able to confirm the emergency assistance needed over the next few months.   HERE IS HOW YOU CAN HELP SAVE LIVES! GO TO OUR WEB SITE and click on the SHOPPING BUTTON. Select your favorite store and purchase any of the following URGENTLY NEEDED ITEMS. ONE OR MORE OF THE FOLLOWING,  Blankets, Children’s winter clothing, warm underwear, baby diapers.  Have your purchases shipped to our warehouse 209 East Bridgers Ave Auburndale, Florida 33823. While on our web site, look at our “Gifts of the Heart” Recovery Kits.  The Food Kits are needed by the thousands.  Have your church or mission group assemble the kits and ship to our warehouse or send an offering for CDR to purchase the Food and build the Kits.  Please respond right away, as we are going to fill a shipping container and get into ##### (location withheld for security.)

Iraq Response

Network Volunteer aiding Iraqi refugee with donated meal kit.

August 15, 2014

We follow Our Lord’s leadership on which calls to respond to, with our limited resources. Our first duty is to the Household of FAITH! Yes God’s family comes first and then all others regardless of their beliefs or lack of any faith. Please remember we minister in both WORD and Deed. CDR has network volunteers working in Iraq to aid Christian families who have been driven from their homes in Mosul by ISIS. They had to renounce their Faith, convert and pay a tax or leave their homes with only the clothes on their backs. The only other choice was public crucifixion or beheading.

The team has discovered an abandoned building in a safe area and reached out to 300 families, who are now securely sheltered. They have divided up the building with hanging sheets for rooms. In time we hope to get all who wish to go, out of Iraq. In the meantime we must provide our brothers and sisters, with clean water, food, soap and basic medical care. Our team can provide for these needs with financial assistance. They can purchase the needed supplies, but must have the required funds. Prayerfully consider making a generous donation today. The estimated budget for 90 days is $130,000.

If a brother or sister be naked and destitute of daily food and one of you say unto them depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; not withstanding ye give them not those thing whch are needful to the body; what doth it profit? Even so faith if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.

Thousands of Christians are dying everyday in Northern Iraq. We must come to the aid of those still alive. Providing food, water and medical assistance can only be done with your prayers and contributions.
