Thanks To YOUR Prayers and Support, God Has Come Through AGAIN

By Pamela Schuffert presenting investigative journalism from a Biblical Christian perspective-

Special thanks to all of you who responded to my temporary crisis! God has come through, once again (and He always will: His resources and provisions are LIMITLESS.) Kitty has eaten and is doing fine.

I have been receiving sobering warnings of potential actions that may indeed bring us one step further to the well planned MARTIAL LAW SCENARIO.

Most of my readers are intelligent enough to understand that our questionable foreign policies in the Middle East are destined to bring disaster upon this nation, sooner or later. I have been receiving word that it appears that America may be moving from IRAQ to IRAN in the near future.

One military email I read indicated that it is not a matter of IF but WHEN: 2000 pre-determined targets to strike in Iran have already been set up by the US military.

Military sources (USAF)have warned that they have been stockpiling up to ten years of emergency food supplies and related supplies, in the deep underground bases across America, in FULL ANTICIPATION OF A PROLONGED NUCLEAR ATTACK ON OUR NATION, due to our aggressive and reckless foreign policies in the Middle East.

For those of you Christians, who understand the POWER IN PRAYER, I encourage you to take the time to fast and pray about these warnings and to take them seriously.

Also consider whether you have the necessary supplies (food/water/medical and related) stored up ion YOUR home against the day of coming disasters to our nation.

God have mercy on you and upon us all at this time.

Your Emergency Support is Needed At This Time..and Why

By Pamela Schuffert presenting investigative journalism from a Biblical Christian perspective-

Greetings from North Carolina! I am struggling throughout this region of Western North Carolina to perform home care for various ill people in crisis. My brother, who almost died Christmas time, has recovered. But he needs my help, and so I am returning to perform home health care in order to raise funds to obtain a motorized lift van, a motorized wheelchair, and other various medical supplies he now will need for his care.

Unfortunately, sometimes people cancel after committing to hire me for various positions, for various reasons.

This happened to me recently, TWICE now. A family wanting me to take care of their elderly mother four days/nights a week, cancelled not ONE time but TWO weeks after committing to each work request for my services. There is disputing in the family as to whether or not they want outside assistance: some do and some do not. And those who do and know she needs extra help, like me and want me to take care of their mother. However, the others have succeeded in convincing them to wait instead.

Because I cancel other jobs to take on this kind of work it leaves me without any work or pay during those periods. This results in tragic loss of income and puts me in severe financial crisis.

This morning, I realized I did not even have the funds to purchase kitty food for Amadeus this week, and am living on next to nothing in the food department myself at this time. My gas is low as well as a result of failed job commitments. I must often travel 80-100 miles a work day to visit or take care of people, far from where I live.

If you are able to send emergency financial support JUST to get me over this difficult hurdle, your gift of love for kitty and I would be greatly appreciated at this time.

You can send your emergency gift of financial support to:
Pamela Schuffert, PO Box 488, Montreat, NC, 28757

And Amadeus and I say "THANKYOU!"

"The Hiding Place" Revisted

Or, what to do when..."the vacuum cleaner cometh!"

By Pamela Schuffert presenting investigative journalism from a Biblical Christian perspective-

Thank GOD for creating cute little kitty cats!

Life can become very lonely for those of us disciples of Jesus Christ in ministry who understand we have been called to celibacy. We were made to love and to interact with others. I am no different. But life can become lonely and even depressing, when you watch your friends as they get married, have children, and later enjoy their grandchildren.

Churches often focus more attention and programs around married couples and their children, than they do on single people.

I finally decided that I needed SOMETHING cute and cuddly to hug and enjoy, and so I searched for the right little companion kitty. And LO, at a tailgate farmer's market, sitting right in the middle of it, was a little girl with a box ...filled with darling KITTIES! Free!

I rushed over to peer into the box, and noted the cutest little black kitten looking up at me with wistful eyes. Reaching into the box, I tenderly picked up kitty, and it was love at first sight. She was MINE!

I took kitty home, and have enjoyed her precious antics and love ever since.

Kitty's name is AMADEUS, a Latin form of "God's Love." And THIS kitty is all love...mixed with the right amount of precocious mischief and trouble making as well.

I have also been learning many things through little Amadeus. This feline definitely does NOT like my vacuum cleaner. In fact, kitty is terrified, even as I begin to pull out the vacuum cleaner from it's corner. Her eyes become wide as I drag this monster out onto the carpet, and immediately kitty is heading for higher ground!

Sometimes that higher ground in high in my clothing closet. Other times, it is in a safe niche under my pillows, where there is a space between my mattress, bed board, with the pillows overhead providing some soundproofing and sense of security.

And then all I may see is a cute little black tail hanging out, as I vacuum my tiny cabin. But kitty feels safe: kitty has found her Hiding Place! And finally, as the monster machine that kitty dreads is turned off and put away, kitty makes sure that all is well, and then gingerly comes out of her little hiding place to purr and gather close to me once again.

AS I watched this behavior with little kitty day after day, and witnessed kitty finding her hiding place from this vacuum cleaner terror, God reminded me that HE REMAINS OUR HIDING PLACE from all that we fear or do not understand.

And if God can provide a hiding place for even little kittens, He surely can provide a safe hiding place of refuge for us, His children when the coming storms of life descend all around us.

Thank you, God, for reminding me of this great truth, even through a little kitty cat, Amadeus!
