Uganda Christian Orphanage Building Fund Raiser

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

I would greatly appreciate your sharing this message on social media for a very worthwhile cause. Thank you.

Uganda Christian Orphanage Building Fund Raiser

Houston, TX – Helen Cook, owner of PrimeStar Publicity and Public Relations, has set up a page on GoFundMe.com for the sole purpose of raising $25,000 US dollars to purchase land and start construction on a building to house fifty Ugandan orphans and a small staff of four.

Even though the Light for Orphans Ministry (LFOM) must be registered and licensed with the government of Uganda, they receive no support because they are a Christian ministry.

Their daily needs – food, shelter, medical, clothing and education – are provided by a small group of dedicated donors, about eleven, here in the US and one in Australia.

The “LFOM family” is currently housed in a rented facility that was slated to be a motel, in the small village of Jinja, Uganda, East Africa. However, they have already outgrown the facility that they moved into less than two years ago when their numbers were less than forty.

It would be so wonderful for them to have a permanent home; one where they can continue to grow without facing the need to have to move out once again.

If your heart is moved to do so, you can make donations to the building fund at: https://www.gofundme.com/light-for-orphans-building-fund?ssid=819941954&pos=1

Maybe you would like to become a regular donor for the monthly needs of our beautiful family. If so, you can make donations to Light for Orphans Ministry (LFOM) c/o Helen Cook, 2668 Hwy. 36 S. #127, Brenham, TX 77833.

If you would like more information about LFOM, feel free to contact me either by phone at 903-654-0938 or email, helencook53@yahoo.com.

1 John 3:17: “But if anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God’s love abide in him?”

Acts 20:35 “In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’ ”

Bring Value To Your Ideas And Have The Courage To Pursue Your Dreams

Houston, TX – This may be the best time in history to start a business. Best-selling author David Thomas Roberts, Renegade Capitalist™ and serial entrepreneur since age twenty-one, has created a guide for those who are no longer content to have someone else dictating their daily commute, their income, schedules and vacations. What does it really take for someone to jump off the employment treadmill and participate in the free enterprise system, unencumbered by traditionally accepted myths? Roberts lays out business strategies and principles in his book Unemployable! How to Be Successfully Unemployed Your Entire Life (Defiance Press and Publishing, LLC).

In Roberts’ quest to find new and innovative investments, the best business plan submitted through the Renegade Capitalist™ website (http://renegadecapitalist.com) will be awarded up to $25,000 in equity investment money. He is also available for speaking engagements and consulting services for new business owners.

Always challenging the status quo, Roberts has built a lifetime of success in defiance of accepted business norms which has led him to be dubbed the “Renegade Capitalist™.”
In college, Roberts became discouraged because no one was teaching him what he wanted to understand: how to become an entrepreneur. He then dropped out and within a year opened a multimillion air freight business with his brother. The downturn in the oil industry caught Roberts by surprise and eventually the business failed. Roberts took many valuable lessons from this experience.

Undaunted, Roberts launched another business which he later successfully sold. Roberts has built numerous successful businesses; he is the founder and CEO of Teligistics, a leading multi-million-dollar telecom technology management firm started with $1,000 on a folding card table in a closet. Now, acknowledging the need for more opportunities, classes and degree paths for aspiring entrepreneurs, Roberts has advised major universities and MBA programs on the creation of degree paths and curriculum for entrepreneurial studies.

Roberts has two best-selling political thrillers to his credit, Patriots of Treason (2012) and A State of Treason (2014). Inspired by his four children, he recognized the need for an unconventional business book to share his expertise. Roberts will soon release his fourth book, a continuation of the political thriller series, and is working on several more business books digging deeper into the principles of Unemployable!

Roberts lives with his wife of thirty-four years near Houston, Texas. He has four grown children and two grandchildren. For more information, please visit http://renegadecapitalist.com and http://davidthomasrobertsauthor.com

Shadow Commander: Remembering The Covert Commander Responsible For The Largest POW Rescue Mission In History

Houston, TX – In Shadow Commander: The Epic Story of Donald D. Blackburn (Casemate Publishers), author Mike Guardia presents his readers with a memorable story of an underdog whose career was a testament to dogged determination and the will to stay alive.

On the evening of April 9, 1942, the fires on Bataan burned with a primitive fury, illuminating white flags of surrender against the dark sky. Outnumbered and outgunned, remnants of the American-Philippine army surrendered to the forces of the Rising Sun. Yet US Army Captain Donald D. Blackburn refused to lay down his arms. With future Special Forces legend Russell Volckmann, Blackburn escaped to the jungles of North Luzon, raising a private army of 22,000 men against the Japanese. His organization of native tribes into guerrilla fighters would lead to the destruction of the enemy’s naval base at Aparri.

But Blackburn’s remarkable accomplishments didn’t end with the victory in the Pacific. He played a key role in initiating Army Special Forces operations in Southeast Asia, became commander of the 77th Special Forces Group and later took command of the highly classified Studies and Observations Group (SOG), charged with performing secret missions. Blackburn also revitalized the Special Operations campaign in South Vietnam, conducting full-scale operations against the NVA and Viet Cong in Laos and Cambodia. Following his return to the US, Blackburn was the architect of the infamous Son Tay Prison Raid, the largest prisoner-of-war rescue mission—and, indeed, the largest Army Special Forces operation—of the Vietnam War.

During a period when US troops in Southeast Asia faced guerrilla armies on every side, America had a superb covert commander of its own. This book follows Blackburn through both his youthful days of desperate combat and his time as a commander, imparting his lessons to the new ranks of Army Special Forces.

An internationally-recognized author and military historian, Mike Guardia is also a veteran of the United States Army. He served six years on active duty as an Armor Officer. He is the author of the widely-acclaimed Hal Moore: A Soldier Once…and Always, the first-ever biography chronicling the life of Lieutenant General Harold G. Moore, whose leadership was popularized in the film We Were Soldiers starring Mel Gibson. As a lecturer, Mike Guardia has given presentations at the US Special Operations Command and the George Bush (41) Presidential Library. He holds a BA and MA in American History from the University of Houston and currently resides in Texas.

Praise Chapel Houston Launches New Young Adults Ministry For Challenging Times

Houston, TX ― Building a platform for effective worship, study and ministry in our time is not only necessary but unprecedented; this is the impetus for the revitalized Young Adults Ministry at Praise Chapel.

“The complexity of everyday life becomes even more challenging for a believer, especially because our culture is increasingly one of nonbelievers,” says Pastor Nathan Hanohano. “What we believe in and how we come to that ‘belief system’ will ultimately shape the destiny of the 21st century Christian,” he continues. “God has big plans for this generation, to usher in the next Great Awakening of the 21st century.”

At Praise Chapel, we work hard to be a church of relationships rather than rules, building bridges and tearing down barricades. We celebrate all nationalities, ages and people at Praise Chapel. We have a vibrant and inspirational music ministry, and offer special programming for children, women, married couples, students, singles, seniors and men.

Praise Chapel is located in Webster, TX. We are conveniently located a few minutes from Houston, and near the cities of League City, Pasadena, Friendswood, Pearland, Clear Lake, Dickinson, Seabrook, La Porte, Texas City, Kemah, and Alvin.
