Pakistan Update

This map on the left from the BCC, shows the widespread effects of the flooding in Pakistan.  The story, that map was taken from, reports that hardline Islamic groups have taken this opportunity to help the flood victims.  Again I'd like to direct my reader's attention to Barnabas Fund an organization that gives spiritual and material aid to persecuted Christians and who, in this case, have mounted a special relief effort to help Christians hurt somehow or other by the flooding.

For those who, like me, are a little uncomfortable giving to an organisation that only helps Christians when people of all or no faiths have lost their homes - an alternative is TEAR Australia's flood relief campaign. http://www.tear.org.au/

I like diversity you bring Jon, you keep a hardliner like myself on my toes in a thoughtful and productive way.
