Notes from JWR:

I just heard from Micah Wood of C.R.O.S.S. Ministries that he is flying to South Sudan on January 29th. During his first week there, he will have a host in Aweil who is with the South Sudanese national government who will be introducing him to key decision makers. Please pray that his vital ministry succeeds. Micah is a former Front Sight firearms instructor. His ministry in South Sudan will be both sharing the gospel and training the citizenry in marksmanship, to defend their villages. It is one thing to just protest Sudan’s ongoing genocide against the South Sudanese, but it takes real guts to do something to stop it. His ministry deserves your support!

Saturday January 19th will be National Gun Appreciation Day–a great day to attend a gun show, go to the range, or buy the very last box ammo still on the shelf at your local gun store–but not Wal-Mart, where they are rumored to be discontinuing some or all of their ammo sales.

To those have written to ask: There won’t be any SurvivalBlog editors attending SHOT Show, 2013, this week. But several folks have offered to pick up literature for us there. Thanks.
