Following Jesus through the Eye of the Needle

"Harder is it for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God..." Norm guest today, Kent Annan, decided to follow the call of Christ right through the 'eye of the needle' - living a humble and challenging life serving the destitute of Haiti. Never did simple things become so desirable than when he couldn't get them anymore. From air conditioning to cheeseburgers, pleasure after pleasure was stripped from his life. Funny thing, though. On the way he discovered wealth like he'd never known. Kent tells us his story, today.

Egypt, God’s People

God has a long history in Egypt. It's important to remember that. From the Patriarchs to modern politics, God has been and still is very involved with the nation of Egypt. Cher joins Norm in studio today to explore the topic.

Cairo’s Garbage Collectors

They're on top of the world! A world of misery you can't even imagine. Funny thing, though. Christ is there and He's bringing real life, real hope, and real joy to the Garbage Collectors of Cairo. Today Norm and Cher describe their own - very personal - experiences among the 'least of the least' and what they found there.

Ambassadors for Peace, Pt. 2

Peace is built on the foundation of freedom and respect. In many nations of the world, personal freedom and conscience are under constant threat. How will that ever change? Through knowledge and understanding. Today’s guests complete an extraordinary interview with Norm as they discuss how Christians can make a profound and lasting difference in the lives of today and generations of tomorrow.

Ambassadors for Peace, Pt. 1

Freedom of speech, assembly, and worship. Freedom from unlawful search, confiscation of property or imprisonment. The right to face your accuser, a fair trial and proportionate punishment.  Everyone believes in these things, right?  Well, it’s only possible for those who have heard of the Bill of Rights.  America is only one of a handful of nations on the planet which guarantee such rights to its citizens.

Today’s guests aim to change that.  And they’re making headway, as you’ll hear today. What makes them so passionate about human rights? Their unwavering commitment to the Gospel of Christ. Norm welcomes Gary Ansdell and Emil Haddad for the first of two programs in a series titled “Ambassadors for Peace.”

Go Afraid!

LeRoy & Cindy Metzger have absolutely no business attempting missions work in the central African nation of Malawi. They're both previous beach bums and drug abusers.

But something interesting happened on their way to Hell. God saved them. And not just from themselves. They've been saved to a life of amazing ministry. Today Norm asks the right questions to tease out their amazing story.

TV to the Arab World, Pt. 2

Christian/Muslim understanding is only a click way - just ask Norm's guests today. In part 2 of this fascinating interview, we'll get a whole new perspective on Arab culture and entertainment. It's being used to bring the Gospel to Asia. And the audience is surprisingly appreciative.

TV to the Arab World, Pt. 1

How do you reach a billion Muslims with the soul-freeing Gospel of Jesus Christ? Norm's guests today have a novel answer. One satellite dish at a time. If you wonder what people are actually watching in the Middle East and beyond, keep listening...

Breakthrough in Sudan

While so much was going on in the tumultuous and troubled nation of Sudan, another of our Compassion Radio projects to the north continued to make a life-transforming difference. In the garbage district of Cairo, one of our heroes continue to rescue children, give them education, food and a future. More importantly, He introduces them to the One who loves them the most.

How does the story of Magdy Bassaly intersect with the opportunities in Sudan? Listen and you'll find out.

A New School in Alexandria

Fourth in our 'Sobering Reality Series': Great things are happening in the Christian Church of the Middle East. And it's because of the great things taking place in the centers of Christian learning. Some of the strongest, most evangelical leadership is flowing out of the seminaries training this century's pastors and evangelists. It  might surprise you to learn that one of the most influential sits in the heart of Egypt. Emad Mikhail joins Norm today to tell the story.

Good News From Cairo, Pt. 2

Where are the Good Samaritans today? Well, one of our favorites can be found in the Garbage dumps of Cairo. And this G*** S********* won't settle for helping just one. His Good Samaritan ministry has amplified the parable to new heights - literally! With a hospital, daycare and skills center touching the lives of thousands, he's transforming Egypt from the bottom up. M**** B******  joins Norm for a second day to discuss what God is doing in Cairo, and how we can help.

00:0000:00

Good News From Cairo, Pt. 1

M**** B****** sees Jesus a thousand times a day. He's taken the Lord's Word to heart - "When you do this unto the least of these, you do it unto Me." So M**** and his wife seek out the least of the least and love them as Christ does. In the process, he's not only rescued thousands from extreme poverty, he's helping usher in the Kingdom of God.

The Garbage Children of Cairo

The people you meet along the way make even the most arduous trip worthwhile. That's especially true of the children of Cairo's Makkatem district. When dozens of them climbed down from garbage piles to hug and play with Norm and Cher, what was their response? You'll find out, today.

00:0000:00

Embrace Egypt’s Children

If a child asked you to play, would you? What if the child lived in a garbage dump?

The answer for Norm was an unqualified "YES!" And so began a relationship with the garbage children of Cairo that has been the heartbeat of this ministry for over a decade. Jim joins Norm in studio to bring this wonderful story to life.

Nepal Earthquake Project, Pt. 1

Nepal is still digging its way out of the worst earthquake in its recorded history. Surprisingly, the Christian Church in Nepal, small as it is, is making serious progress as it ministers to the 'least of these.' Kim Fanning knows this personally, as the U.S. representative of the most active Christian group in the country. She brings the latest on the tragedy and  triumph...

A Pastor’s Heart for Her Native Syria

"Home is where the heart is," they say. Well, in Nancy Samara's case, that means a heart torn in multiple directions. As  Kingdom citizen, her heart beats for her King. As a child of Syria, the King's compassion draws her to the center of that nation's ongoing suffering. When others flee and say "good riddance," she can't let go so easily. And her King would expect her to...
