how to solve a quadratic equation. You've looked at the examples in your
textbook, poured over your notes from class, but you still can't figure it
out. You can't phone your teacher. Your parents don't have a clue. What
do you do?
When she needed some tutoring in math, Nadia called her cousin, Salman Khan,
who has earned three degrees from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology
and an MBA from Harvard University. In late 2004, Khan began tutoring his
cousin Nadia in mathematics using Yahoo!'s Doodle notepad. When other
relatives and friends sought similar help, he decided it would be more
practical to distribute the tutorials on YouTube. The popularity of these
videos and the testimonials of appreciative students prompted Khan to quit
his job in finance in 2009 as a hedge fund analyst and focus full-time on
His work - and many tutorials to help you with your homework - may be viewed

We ALL need help, and it's not just with math problems. Each of us has deep
needs, the greatest of which is salvation from SIN. "For all have sinned
and fall short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23). "And the wages of sin is
death" (Romans 6:23).
But God, because of His great love for us, came to our rescue. He provided
a Book (the Bible) that tells us of His great love and His answer to our
greatest problems. In His Word, we learn that He sent His Son Jesus into
the world to live among us (John 1:14) and then to die on the cross as
payment for our sins
(2 Corinthians 5:21; Ephesians 1:7). We learn that through Jesus, we can be
saved from our sins and look forward to an eternal home with God in heaven
(Acts 4:12; 1 Pet 1:3-5).
God will save those who place their faith and trust in Jesus (Acts
16:30-31), turn from their sin in repentance (Acts 17:30-31), confess Him
before men (Romans 10:9-10), and are baptized (immersed) into Christ for the
forgiveness of sins (Acts 2:38). The blood of Jesus will continue to
cleanse those who continue to walk in the light of His word (1 John 1:7).
Sinful man cries, "Help!" God has answered by sending His Son Jesus to our
Won't YOU accept His offer of salvation and eternal life on His terms?
