I am listening to a new CD….clear, soft songs about God´s character and faithfulness. It almost makes me cry. Not just because I like the music and the lyrics, but because I know where these songs of trust in God where written: in prisons somewhere in Afghanistan.

The CD is called: “Worship from an Afghan Prison – Ransom unharmed” and I am helping to distribute it. You can get it from me for 12,80 Euro ( Just send an email with your addresse and the numbers of Cds you want to me: Kerstin@down-to-earth.de).
It might be a really useful christmas gift…(just give it to everyone who thinks that i>his or her life is hard….!)

Or you may wish to contact the offices of Shelter now to find out about their fantastic work and where the CD is available in your country (as much as I know they do not distribute the CD themselves): Have a look at Shelters Homepage.
I know, love and admire the men and women working with shelter (at least some of them) and would love to do everything I can to help support them and the work they do.
