US moves to expand deportation capacity -

WASHINGTON – The Trump administration is quickly identifying ways to assemble the nationwide deportation force that President Donald Trump promised on the campaign trail as he railed against the dangers posed by illegal immigration.

Tomorrow’s Triple Benefits: Let Us Make Good Use of Them

Every now and then Good Friday, the day Jesus was crucified on the cross to save humankind from sin, coincides with Fast and Prayer Day. We say Good Friday is a plus because despite the horrifying events that occurred on that day over 2000 years ago—Jesus’ brutal whipping on the orders of Pontius Pilate and subsequent crucifixion on the cross, it was a good day for humanity. He was put to death in the body but made alive by the Spirit.”That is why Good Friday is “good,” and a plus. Another plus we receive tomorrow is Fast and Prayer Day, proclaimed a national holiday by the Legislature in 1883. The third plus that tomorrow brings us is that Good Friday is the prelude (forerunner) to Easter—the glorious Resurrection of Jesus Christ.
