A sword will pierce her heart, yet she ponders. Such is the legacy of Mary, the mother of Jesus. It is a legacy re-encountered within the history of Hagia Sophia.More
Christian women in Pakistan must overcome impossible odds to succeed in society. Cast aside for both their gender and status as a religious minority, education and employment are difficult to come by. ICC learned of four women who were denied admittance to a local vocational school because of their faith.
In order to support these women ICC enrolled them in a 10-month beautician training course. This program will allow the women to grow in their cosmetology skills and learn alongside other women facing similar challenges. The women also received cosmetic tools and hygienic kits, so that they can eventually develop their own small businesses.
One participant in the training shared, "We never hoped or expected to get so much in life. It is God’s providence. He has listened to my cry. ICC and [partner] have played a great role in our lives. We thank them wholeheartedly. We shall make use of the opportunity to prosper and grow in life. We shall be happy and prosperous girls in the future."
With the skills and tools to develop their own small businesses, these women will be able to provide for their families, clearing the cloud of financial worries from overhead. Read more: bit.ly/3k6cCE0 … See MoreSee Less

I can understand for only two short years ago having the police called on me for praying outside of my home. I even thought in America I would be free to pray outside in my own backyard. I lived in what I thought was a nice community that accepted Christian's. I lived next to a veteran, some elderly people, and others. Even the homosexual on my street was accepted by them all. The fact that I simply prayed outside and had them do that is heartbreaking. In the heartland of America, next to a city nicknamed A City of A Thousand Churches. The population in this area is only around 250,000 people, and if you didn't look you wouldn't know we have Buddhist temples, Mosques, a Synagogue, and many different Christian churches, including a metaphysical one. With so many religious beliefs accepted here I never would have thought they would do that, especially since was raised that we could in America. That wasn't a public school, a corporation, a government building, or some place where the phase "separation of church and state" would be accepted. It was my backyard, and I was just divorced and went outside and prayed outloud like we are taught to do, and my neighbor called the police for me praying.
I sometimes listen to the bible. I've actually listened to the whole thing straight through and started listening again to it. I made through only the first few chapters when the ones I'm by now started acting weird towards me. Again, we are allowed to listen to it.
I LOVE PHILOSOPHY! I studied much on Eastern (Asian) philosophy through my teens and into my early 20s. I studied western Christian philosophy prior to that. Of course I also know much, but never all, of other European philosophies. I have since rounded my way back to revisiting Christian philosophy with an emphasis on Judaism and and other middle eastern and north African beliefs to get a better grasp on it.
I never believed that people in this part of Indiana in America could possibly ever turn on someone for reading and listening to a Bible on their own property. It's not like I went and did a mercenary act and asked for them to join me in prayer or religion. (Like those Jehovah Witnesses that would knock on my door and leave pamphlets.) I was simply minding my own business at my own house praying to my God.
