  • Priceless, the Movie: Marshall Monroe, For King & Country, and the Magic Canyon Institute
    Priceless, the Movie: Marshall Monroe, For King & Country, and the Magic Canyon Institute By Brian Nixon, Special to ASSIST News Service MORA, NEW MEXICO (ANS – September 4, 2015) -- Driving up Interstate 25 in New Mexico from Albuquerque to Mora is a journey of the senses. You pass a modern metropolis (Albuquerque), ancient Pueblos (San Felipe, Santa Domingo, Cochiti, etc.), America’s oldest standing city (Santa Fe, founded in 1609), beautiful canyons, buttes, the amazing eastern slope of the southern Rocky Mountains, and a gentle transition to the Great Plains. It’s a feast for the eyes and mind, poetry of geography. Recently, I embarked on this adventure, driving to the Magic Canyon Institute for the filming of the finale scene of the movie Priceless, a project of the Australian rock band, For King & Country. A few days…
  • Displaced Syrians Seeking Seaside Refuge Could See More Persecution, But Local Christians Continue to Provide Aid
    Displaced Syrians Seeking Seaside Refuge Could See More Persecution, But Local Christians Continue to Provide Aid From Christian Aid Mission (www.christianaid.org) -- For Immediate Release Contact: Amie Cotton APR, +1 (434) 327-1240, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA (CA – September 3, 2015) --The Islamic State (ISIS) this month moved closer to Damascus, capital of Syria, even as it fights for Aleppo, the war-torn country's largest city. Lying quietly between these two prize cities of Syria is the Mediterranean coastal city of Tartus, where displaced Syrians have arrived in waves. Civilians in Syria have more than terrorists and rebel bombs to fear. Less than 10 miles east of the center of Damascus, the Syrian Air Force on Aug. 16 bombed the central marketplace of Douma, a rebel-held area, leaving hundreds dead or wounded, according to The Times of Israel. The regime of President Bashar…
  • 90 Minutes in Heaven movie: There and back again?
    90 Minutes in Heaven movie: There and back again? By Rusty Wright, Special to ASSIST News Service (ANS Movie Review) MOUNT HERMON, CA (ANS – September 3, 2015) – What's it like to die and go to heaven? Don Piper believes he knows.  A horrendous 1989 auto accident left him battered, bloody, and – according to four Emergency Medical Technicians – dead.  Yet 90 minutes later, he was alive. He says he visited heaven's gates, heard celestial music, met deceased friends and family, saw streets of gold, and sensed God's presence. Piper's bestselling book, 90 Minutes in Heaven (over 7 million sold; 46 languages), now is a film staring Haden Christensen (Star Wars Episodes II and III) and Kate Bosworth (Superman Returns).  Michael Polish (The Astronaut Farmer) wrote and directed. Much of the book…
  • In Ukraine: Getting Established Again [Writer's Opinion]
    In Ukraine: Getting Established Again [Writer's Opinion] By Sharon T. Markey, Special to ASSIST News Service  KYIV, UKRAINE (ANS – September 3, 2015) -- In my last column, I shared the sad circumstances surrounding our family’s relocation from the quiet town of Ternopil in Western Ukraine to Kyiv, the bustling capital of the country. I told how a dear friend and the pastor of a church in Kyiv had confessed to adultery, and the church leadership had asked us to come pastor the church. I wrote about the challenges and uncertainties we were facing as we transitioned from the pastorate of one church to another and prepared our 4 kids for the move. At the time, we hadn’t found a place to live, and we didn’t even know if our family budget could…
  • Connecting for Change: Questions that Matter Most
    Connecting for Change: Questions that Matter Most By Jerry Wiles, President Emeritus, Living Water International, Special to ASSIST News Service HOUSTON, TX (ANS – September 1, 2015) – Why are we doing what we are doing? What are we here for? How did this get started? What is the origin and history of some particular practice or custom? These are all great questions that can prompt important conversations and promote positive reflection. These kinds of questions and conversations can sometimes lead to saving lives and changing destinies. In conversation with a friend who leads a major organization, I asked a few questions that my he responded to by saying, “I have never thought about that; no one has ever asked me those questions before.” It’s easy to do things simply because we…
