Don’t  know  whether  you  heard  about this
but  Denzel  Washington  and  his family visited
the  troops at Brook Army Medical Center ,  in
San  Antonio, Texas (BAMC) the other day. This
is where soldiers who have been  evacuated from
Germany  come to be hospitalized in the United
States, especially burn  victims There are some
buildings there called  Fisher  Houses.  The Fisher
House is a Hotel where soldiers’ families can stay,
for little or no charge, while their soldier is staying
on base, but as you can imagine, they are almost filled
most of the time.

While Denzel Washington was visiting BAMC, they gave
him a tour of one of the Fisher Houses. He asked how much one of them would cost to build.
He took his cheque book out and wrote a cheque for the full amount right there
on the spot. The soldiers  overseas were amazed to hear
this story and want to get the  word out to the American
public, because it warmed their hearts  to hear it

Why do:
Britney Spears
Madonna

Tom  Cruise

and other Hollywood fluff make front page news with their ridiculous
antics and Denzel
Washington’s charity
doesn’t even make page 3 in the Metro  section of
any newspaper except the local newspaper in  San
Antonio.

    It’s sad to have untruthful statements made to support an anti-media position by a website/group that uses “Christian” in it’s name. It’s in God’s Law, Exodus 20:16 “You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor.”, and yet, Denzel Washington did NOT “write a check on the spot” to purchase a Fisher House.

    Denzel Washington did a good thing. Publishing this is baring false witness to the good thing that Denzel Washington did. You can read in Proverbs about false witness (6:19,12:17,14:5,14:25,19:5, 21:28).

    Denzel Washington,

    God’s gift to so many around the world! Thanks for being a real man, a family man. You are a miracle and a blessing to so many.

    You have been my role model across the Atlantic, across thousand of miles for years. Your faith in God, family, community and global touch makes life beautiful. You have inspired me with you being you, a confident black man, your talent, vision, but more so your heart of humility. Keep Loving brother!

    I pray someday we can do a Boys and Girls Club or the Denzel Washington Cavalla Children’s Village in our home, Maryland, Liberia, West Africa.

    Blessings to you and your family as you stand tall,

    Lincoln Sie Brownell
    Educator/Missionary,

    It is absolutely unbelievable that anyone would think that the Manchester, UK city council is encouraging the desecration of Christian graves by Muslims! The UK is a faithful country, with strong Anglican congregations. Don’t believe everything you see on YouTube! Check your facts! And, FYI, Manchester is a beautiful city.
