But the LORD is the true God; he is the living God and the everlasting King … It is he who made the earth by his power, who established the world by his wisdom, and by his understanding stretched out the heavens… “Listen to my voice and do all that I command you. So shall you be my people, and I will be your God, that I may confirm the oath that I swore to your fathers, to give them a land flowing with milk and honey, as at this day.” Then I answered, “So be it, Lord.” … Then those who feared the Lord spoke with one another. The Lord paid attention and heard them … and a book of remembrance was written before him of those who feared the Lord and esteemed his name. “They shall be mine, says the Lord of hosts, in the day when I make up my treasured possession, and I will spare them as a man spares his son who serves him. Then once more you shall see the distinction between the righteous and the wicked, between one who serves God and one who does not serve him … On that day the Lord their God will save them, as the flock of his people; for like the jewels of a crown they shall shine on his land. Jeremiah10:10,12; 11:4b-5* Malachi 3:16-18* Zechariah 9:16-17

CBS has ministries in a number of countries that are hostile to Christians. For the safety of our leaders and participants we may not indicate where ministry is happening and instead refer to the ministry in an “undisclosed country.”
