Unreached People - Rashaida

Pray for the Unreached People. 

"The Rashaida are known as a fierce warrior people group. However, if you show up at their tent uninvited, they will ask you in for a cup of tea and coffee. Their lives are built around Muslim traditions that have lasted for centuries. These traditions include big families, hospitality, praying regularly to Allah, hard work and sacrifice. The men are famous for sword dancing and the women for beadowrk, which can be seen on front of their burqas. 

They are a desert people group of more than 100,000 people. We do not know of one who believes in Jesus as his Savior. 

Pray for Rashaida people today ever time you see a Toyota. The Bedouin Rashaida cherish their Toyotas almost as much as their camels - they are often used for smuggling goods across the desert. Rashaida boys learn to drive them at about 10 years old."

Book Review - Domino Effect by Davis Bunn

So glad I read this book!!

Another riveting read from Davis Bunn! From start to finish, Bunn's clear knowledge of the international finance world slaps us with sobering reality of a very possible threat to America's economic future. I love how Mr. Bunn brings the characters to life and invites you into their world. He develops his characters with such nuances, flavor, background and real relationships. Esther is a brilliant introvert called to speak truth to the world; impressed by her pain I found myself cheering her on as she comes out of her shell, finding her true inner self through developing friendships, a budding new family and professional rewards as well.

Take a deep breath and delve into Esther's world of being a top risk analyst at one of the country's largest banking institutions as she becomes more and more convinced that she has uncovered a ticking bomb with the potential to overshadow 2008's market crash. Is this Esther's 'for such a time as this'? The markets are edging closer to a tipping point--like the teetering first domino in a standing row that circles the globe. And when Esther does sound the alarm, she wonders if anyone will take her seriously. But as public support grows for her ideas, so does the desperation of those whose conspiracy of greed she seeks to expose. With global markets on the brink, and her own life in danger, Esther is locked in a race with the clock to avert a worldwide financial meltdown.

This page turner will grab you and take you on the ride of your life. Fiction or Reality? You make the call.

I thankfully received this book from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for my honest review.
