CNN and News

I have cable TV and only have two English channels, CNN and a EuroSports network. Most of the good sports stuff is on during the middle of the night here, so most of the time during the day they repeat sports news. Of course, all of it is about European sports, so there is rarely anything about American sports.

I have gotten involved in Football (soccer in the US) and watch matches when they are on and I am at home. But most of the time if I watch TV I watch the news on CNN.

Today was one of those days where I wanted to sit and watch as history unfolds. While I was eating lunch, I watched a little of the headlines and saw that the opposition leaders had reach the Kyrgyzstan capital of Bishkek. Kyrgyzstan is the southern neighbor of K’stan.

After lunch, I had to run some errands and when I returned a couple of hours later I turned on the TV to see the protestors had taken control of the government offices. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing.

I watched some of it but tried to reach some people in Almaty to see what they knew about brothers and sisters I had met while there a couple of weeks ago. They had not been able to reach any of them yet.

So, while it is interesting to see the events unfold, still our prayers are needed to ungird the work of our brothers and sisters in that country. Please take a moment now to pray for them and their families.
