  • To Worry or Not to Worry-That Is the Question. Joy Junction Guests Share Their Worries
    To Worry or Not to Worry-That Is the Question. Joy Junction Guests Share Their Worries By Jeremy Reynalds, Senior Correspondent, ASSIST News Service (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (ANS. MARCH 27, 2015) -- It’s really not helpful, but we all worry. We worry about sickness, losing our jobs and lack of finances, and we worry about being worried. But think for a minute how many of the things about which you’ve worried have come to pass. Maybe a few, but definitely not as many as those about which you worried, right? I’m an inveterate worrier, and thinking back, even with a few of the things about which I worried that did come to pass, my worry didn’t help. It just destroyed my ability to enjoy the present. But I still worry-even though the Bible tells me to cast my cares on Him.…
  • Staggering Increase of International Students in USA
    Staggering Increase of International Students in USA By Bill Bray, Special to ASSIST News Service (Writer's Opinion) CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA (ANS – March 26, 2015) – The largest and most accessible mission field in the United States has grown another 14% in the last year according to the Department of Homeland Security. The new statistics confirm what missiologists have been saying for decades; the easiest way to reach some of the most unreached people groups in the world is to stay right here at home. For example, Saudi Arabia, which forbids Christian evangelism and missions of any kind on penalty of death, has sent 80,941 students here this year. Saudi Islamists are the prime funders of the world’s most famous terror movements including al Qaeda and ISIS. This means one of the only…
  • The Second Most Important day of Your Life
    The Second Most Important day of Your Life By Rick Marschall, Special to ASSIST News Service (Writer's Opinion) Swartz Creek MI (ANS - March 25, 2015)-- Here is an anomaly – something like Winston Churchill once called, in another context, a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma: It is possible in America today, a “Christian” nation founded by Christians, many of them pilgrims and many who dedicated their lives, their lands, and their legacies to Jesus Christ; a country where churches dot the landscape and where sermons and Christian music are common on airwaves… it is the case that many people in America today grow up never hearing the gospel presented. Multitudes reach adulthood, and live their lives, without the basics of the Christian faith being explained to them. America, “one…
  • The Miracle of Music
    The Miracle of Music By Aubrey Beauchamp, RN, Special to ASSIST News Service SAN CLEMENTE, CA (ANS – March 24, 2015) -- When little Tito was 7 years old, he wanted to take violin lessons. But the visiting teacher, Nancy Benning, smiled and said: “You are too young, Tito. You have to wait till you are ten.” But Tito did not give up and kept asking. Eventually, Nancy gave in and began to teach Tito how to play the violin. Today, some twenty years later, Tito Quiroz Angulo is an accomplished violinist and heads the prestigious Benning Music Academy in Ensenada, Mexico, where over 400 pupils are enrolled to take music lessons from 42 teachers. Before all this happened, when Tito was still very young, his father was diagnosed…
  • He frequented gay bars in Hollywood until God’s grace set him free
    He frequented gay bars in Hollywood until God’s grace set him free By Mark Ellis & Michael Ashcraft, Special to ASSIST News Service SANTA MONICA, California (ANS -- March 24, 2015) -- Molested a few times when he was a child, Paul Gualtieri dabbled with homosexuality as a largely unsupervised 13-year-old in Palm Springs. It wasn’t long before he found himself in his bedroom proclaiming his destiny: “I’m gay. I’m a homosexual,” he said out loud with no one around. It was a pivotal moment of his life. “There’s power in confessing both good and bad things. When I declared I was gay, I gave a right to a spiritual force in my life.” When he was 13, he ran away to Hollywood and threw himself headlong into the partying and gay lifestyle. “I just got sucked right…
