Last night I had the privilege of speaking to a big group of teens who traveled up from Tulsa, Oklahoma to do some missions work here in Toronto. What a great encouragement it is to see those teens serving hard and sharing the gospel. (Hi, Emily’s mom!)

The Most Dangerous Countries for Women – The Big Picture has a heartbreaking photo gallery of the most dangerous countries for women.

Grow Up. Settle Down. – John MacArthur is penning a series of blog posts meant to speak to the Young, Restless, Reformed crowd.

Surprised by Suffering – At the Ligonier blog I’ve got a roundup of some great quotes from R.C. Sproul’s book Surprised by Suffering.

—C.H. Spurgeon
