The United States will send more warships to Asia.

Arab believers risk death to share their faith. According to CBN News, many Muslims throughout the Middle East are coming to Christ through signs and wonders like those performed by Paul and Barnabas in the Book of Acts. One evangelist named Rasim shares his faith in mosques, handing out Bibles and praying with those who are sick. He says that it is hard to be a Christian in a Muslim-dominated society, especially in Egypt where Christians were murdered in the streets earlier this year near the city of Luxor. Despite the risks, some bold Middle Eastern Christians feel compelled to share their faith with Muslims and other people. One evangelist stated, "Of course living for Christ in Iraq is not easy for anybody. But despite this difficult situation the salvation of souls is taking place in big numbers among masses in Iraq."
