Proverbs 25:25 Like cold water to a weary soul is good news from a distant land.


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.

Suffering for Christ

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.

HOPEww Responds To U.S. Storms

Severe storms hit the South, Southwest and Midwest over the Christmas holiday weekend, unleashing floods and tornadoes that killed at least 43 people, flattened buildings and snarled transportation for millions during a busy travel time.

In Missouri, emergency workers have evacuated residents from their homes and conducted dozens of water rescues on Sunday. At least, eight people had been killed and numerous roadways had been closed. Our partner church in St. Louis, The Gateway City Church, advised that all church members have been accounted for and no emergent needs have been reported.
