This past weekend the Paris Church of Christ hosted our third annual Woman's Day focusing on the transforming power of God's love in our lives. "Il m'aime, un peu, beaucoup, passionnément, à la folie!" translating into English as "He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not," spoke to the deep spiritual need each women desires for unconditional love, a love that only God, our heavenly Father provides for each and every one of us, as evidenced by the death and resurrection of his son Jesus!

2016 HOPE Youth Corps registration now open

Before you choose a program, read the description carefully. Do not pick a trip based on the location only. Different programs will appeal to different tastes and personalities.

In case you missed it...another story of suffering for Christ

When Nalini, a sister in Chennai, decided to start following Jesus she immediately faced serious persecution from her father. He kicked her out of the house, beat publicly in front of 300 people, handed her to the police, and continued to cause her distress for three years. By God’s grace, she persevered and she shared her story with ICOC HotNews.

Two brothers in Bangalore learned what it means to suffer for the name of Christ after sharing their faith one afternoon. After evangelizing to a mysterious man, a group of men surrounded them, beat them publicly, and then allowed the police to arrest and imprison them under false accusations. Both brothers lived to tell the tale, and one of them, Prem, shared the story with ICOC HotNews.
