Grass Valley Baptist Church has been a financial supporter of the Advancing Native Missions organization for several years. Today, P. R. gave us an overview along with a slideshow presentation of the work being done with people in several countries in southern Asia. Unfortunately, we were unable to make an audio recording of P.R.’s presentation. For more information, go to advancingnativemissions.com.

Dr. Stuart Scott says: “Anxiety and ungodly fear are like “kissing cousins.” While not exactly the same, they are closely related and generally accompany one another. “Anxiety usually involves worrying about what could possibly happen. Fear goes a step further and is more convinced that what is dreaded will really happen.” Godly concern is caring about important things for the right reason and involves trusting God. Ungodly concern goes beyond reasonable concern and involves worry about mere possibilities. Godly fear includes a fear of God and a reasonable fear of danger or difficulty, however if fear prevents us from doing the right thing, it is sin.
