The Milky Way alone has over 85 million stars that God created just for us. Everything He created is for us to appreciate and protect us. Take time today to thank Him for all of creation. Tell Him how excellent He is and see how much we mean to Him.
When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers,
The moon and the stars, which You have ordained,
What is man that You are mindful of him,
And the son of man that You visit him?
O LORD, our Lord,
How excellent is Your name in all the earth!
Gordon Robertson shares about a recent CBN Medical Mission in Thailand where staff and volunteers faced an unusual crisis.
A recent CBN medical mission in Thailand faced an unusual crisis. A man carried in his 40-year-old wife who was very frail due to dehydration and diarrhea and had not eaten for five days. When she first arrived, her pulse was weak and her blood pressure could not be measured. CBN’s medical team immediately gave her fluids through an IV. When her vital signs were strong enough, she was referred to a local hospital for further treatment. Upon arrival at the hospital the woman regained strength and could walk to see the doctor. According to doctors, this woman would have died any minute if she had not received treatment. This is just one of the more than 400,000 lives touched this year through CBN’s medical missions.

Turning Point is a magazine style program with testimonies, interviews and inspirational music. It broadcasts in 19 African countries, 12 Caribbean nations, the UK and throughout Europe.
Gordon Robertson takes a look at an Operation Blessing micro-enterprise project in Honduras that helps one family keep food on the table.
Operation Blessing micro-enterprise projects are helping thousands of people provide for their families. A single father in Honduras was struggling to provide for his six children. When folks at Operation Blessing heard about it, volunteers built them a new home and helped the father, Alberto, start a bicycle repair business. Alberto has since expanded his business to include TV and radio repair and his income now allows him to feed his family and send his children to school.
Gordon Robertson shows us an orphanage in Mongolia where children are receiving spiritual and emotional healing thanks to CBN’s Orphan’s Promise.
CBN’s Orphan’s Promise is supporting a special orphanage in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. The orphanage focuses on bringing emotional and spiritual healing to abandoned and special needs children. It also helps prepare children to live in a family unit. Efforts are made to reunite children with their parents once their home life is safe, but it’s also been the leading orphanage in Mongolia for placing children in loving homes. Orphan’s Promise sponsored a month long summer camp this year for the children at the orphanage.
