Mark Hall, the lead singer for popular contemporary Christian band Casting Crowns, underwent surgery to remove a cancerous kidney Wednesday and "everything went really well," according to an update from the band.
"Mark is out of surgery. Everything went really well. Dr. says textbook operation. Just like we prayed for. I told the doctor that he might possibly be the most prayed for Dr. on the planet today. He will be in recovery for a while. Thank you so much for your prayers," noted an update on the band's Facebook page posted shortly before 2 p.m. Wednesday.
In an earlier post on Tuesday, Mark's wife, Melanie, said she was "humbled" by the outpouring of support her family has received since they went public with Mark's health issues last Thursday. more >>
Those who walk in the light have a presence of God inside of them. It is seen in the way they act, speak, treat family, work, and think about life.
The light is deep within all believers and it exposes and drives out any darkness their might be in our lives. No evil can hurt His people. The light overpowers the darkness every time. In the Bible, there are many different scriptures about walking in the light with Jesus. Avoiding temptation and doing our best not to stumble in sinful choices.
To walk in the light is to have a daily commitment to living out a righteous life. It refreshes us within so that we gain the power to be a refreshment to those around us. more >>
As Mark Hall, lead singer for popular contemporary Christian band Casting Crowns, undergoes surgery Wednesday to remove a kidney containing a "solid mass" doctors are 90 percent certain is cancer, his wife, Melanie, is asking fans to pray for four specific things.
In a post on the band's Facebook page Tuesday, Melanie revealed that she was "humbled" by the outpouring of support her family has received since they went public with Mark's health troubles last Thursday.
"I'm completely humbled by the number of people that have expressed their love for us and are interceding in prayer. There are no words to express the gratitude in this wife's heart. Thank you for praying for us. We have had friends and strangers from all over the world tell us they are praying — an orphan school in Kenya, neighbors we just met, long lost high school friends, Christian music artists from their concerts, schools, offices, pastors in South Africa, chaplains in the Army, churches, radio DJs, fans, missionaries in Brazil, and countless others I couldn't begin to name. Thank you. Your prayers are felt," noted Melanie in the post. more >>

This video will prove to you that there are plenty of good people out there in the world. This experiment was filmed to show the better side of people -- the positive and compassionate side. These guys pretended they were going to commit suicide to see who would help, and the results are overwhelming!
Neither of these men were prepared for what unfolded on this day. It left them both speechless. They start out in a cab and begin by telling the cab driver about their life. It starts out as a normal conversation, then turns into something a lot more serious. These men start saying things like "my life is not worth living" and how everything in life is falling apart for them. Eventually, it leads up to something that really becomes heart-wrenching to watch.
When they reach their destination, they hand the cab driver a letter and say "please give this to my family." The cab driver immediately becomes concerned and follows the man out of the car. This man then attempts to commit suicide by jumping off a bridge. more >>
