  • Hope in a Bucket of Water
    Hope in a Bucket of Water A Gospel for Asia (www.gfa.org) News Release – For Immediate Release WILLS POINT, TX (ANS – April 26, 2017) -- Morning came early for the villagers. They trudged down a dusty path as the heat began to rise with the sun, dawning a new day. The morning light exposed strange yellow and red stains inside the pots they carried by hand, or had lifted above their shoulders or they placed atop their heads. Those stains revealed an immense struggle in the villagers' daily lives. Muddy Water Leaves Marks on Vessels and Stomachs The water in the village was not safe to drink. Hand pumps installed year’s prior gushed forth muddy, red-colored water. It was obvious this was the culprit to the stains inside the water…
  • Southern California Author Rides the Publishing Wave, Wins Awards, and Now Coaches Others
    Southern California Author Rides the Publishing Wave, Wins Awards, and Now Coaches Others ANS News Release – For Immediate Release Contact: Rachael Morris, Pamela Christian Ministries, 1 714 624-0914, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  YORBA LINDA, CA (ANS – April 26, 2017) -- Many have scoffed at independent publishing believing that authors whose titles are printed through the independents is because they couldn’t land a traditional deal. However, that swell of opinion is changing because of authors like Pamela Christian who consistently produce titles of quality. Christian’s first two books in her Faith to Live By series, (Protocol, Ltd) have each won two awards -- so far. The third in the series is expected on May 15, 2017, and already has the markings of enjoying the same success. “As an inexperienced author, I published the first book in the series with a…
  • South Africa’s Shalom!
    South Africa’s Shalom! ‘Mighty Men’ revival linked with support for Israel By Charles Gardner, Special to ASSIST News Service DONCASTER, UK (ANS – April 25, 2017) – Although hundreds of thousands – perhaps millions – have been affected by it, few in the Northern Hemisphere seem to have heard of the South African revival. I’m not referring to the 1860 awakening led by my ancestor (by adoption) Andrew Murray1, but to a current movement that is drawing huge crowds – especially men – to Christ. And it is my belief that there is a distinct correlation between this move of the Spirit and a general understanding and support of Israel, to whom Christians are indelibly attached – if we cut ourselves off from our Judaic roots, the Church…
  • Outstanding in His Field: Learning from San Ysidro, The Patron Saint of Farmers
    Outstanding in His Field: Learning from San Ysidro, The Patron Saint of Farmers By Brian Nixon, Special to ASSIST News Service ALBUQUERQUE, NEW MEXICO (ANS – April 25, 2017) -- According to The Telegraph in the UK, “the Pope does not make someone a saint” [1]. Rather, “the designation of sainthood only recognizes what God has already done.” And though Protestants would designate any Christian that has received Jesus as Lord as a saint (not a specific person canonized through a process), the fact is that all branches of Christianity believe and recognize saints: fellow Christians that journeyed with Jesus in ages past. As one interested in Christian history I’m fascinated by men and women who had a deep and abiding relationship with Christ. To me these “saints” are worth reading about and learning from; fellow believers that…
  • How soccer has become, for many, the world’s major ‘religion’
    How soccer has become, for many, the world’s major ‘religion’ By Dan Wooding, Founder of ASSIST News Service, and a former soccer goalkeeper in the UK LONDON, UK (ANS – April 24, 2017) -- Christianity, with more than 2.2 billion believers, ranks second among the major “religions” of the world. So, who’s first? Well believe it or not, the “church of soccer” tops the list, while Christianity is second, with Islam and its 1.6 million adherents, comes in third. One billion fans tuned in to watch the final of the final of the FIFA world cup competition in Rio, with the competition reaching a global in-home television audience of 3.2 billion people, according to final figures from FIFA and Kantar Media. Please bear in mind that the world’s population in 2013 was estimated at 7.125…
