Obama has been given the Nobel Peace Prize, much to the distress of many commentators around the world.

The committee have spoken in explaining their choice of his: “extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples.”

“Only very rarely has a person to the same extent as Obama captured the world’s attention and given its people hope for a better future,” the committee said.

“His diplomacy is founded in the concept that those who are to lead the world must do so on the basis of values and attitudes that are shared by the majority of the world’s population,” it said.

Whilst I understand the concerns many have over what has Obama actually done, he has created a sense of hope not just in America but around the world.  As a number of leadership experts have also pointed out the best leadership starts with principles and values first and from these flows the tasks and outcomes.  Obama’s principles and values are very clearly about bring hope and peace, about trying to make the world a better place.  Let’s hope this award strengthens his work.

    Greetings from Jesus Loves Ministry!

    He said to them; “Go into the world and preach the good news to all creation” (Mark 16:15).

    It is really privilege for me to introduce my ministry to you. I am from Pakistan ; I and my team felt the need to establish the Jesus Loves Ministry. We day and night struggle to preach the word of God and real teachings of Holy Bible.

    We also make them realize that how great is to be a Christian, because the Jesus Christ has bought us by shedding His blood on the cross. We thrust to bring many people close to God who are faraway from God and are fallen in sin. Apart from the spiritual development ministry is also concerned for the social and economic uplift of the poor, depressed, marginalized and downtrodden people through education, skill trainings.
    As I was visiting your site I found that you are doing the marvelous work to preach the Word of God.

    Our ministry is doing the following work.

    · Door to door Preaching
    · Sunday Schools
    · Bible Education for Youth
    · Prayer Meetings
    · Street Prayers.
    · Conventions
    · Home Schools
    · Adult Literacy Centers
    · Vocational Training Centers for Women
    · Economic Development program for People
    · Bible correspondence school
    · To show the religious movies

    I watch your website and read your valuable material in English, as in Pakistan most of the people are uneducated they are not able to read and understand the English. I can translate your work in our local language so that people may read and understand it in the better way. As we don’t have any regular support for our Ministry work, the income generated by the translation work would be a great help from your ministry or church to run our above mentioned ministry work and activities

    I hope you will consider my humble request favorably.
    God bless you, your family and work abundantly.

    Yours truly, In Jesus,

    Evangelist: Saima Benjamin
