  • Why We Need Reminders of God’s Faithfulness (Writer's Opinion)
    Why We Need Reminders of God’s Faithfulness (Writer's Opinion) By Carol Round, Special to ASSIST News Service (Writer’s Opinion) GROVE, OK (ANS – February 26, 2017) -- “Then Samuel took a stone and set it up between Mizpah and Shen, and called its name Ebenezer, saying, ‘Thus far the Lord has helped us’”-- 1 Samuel 7:12 (NKJV). In a recent column, I made a mistake. I’d forgotten the importance of double checking facts, but a reader, who pointed out my error, reminded me I had been careless. In a hurry to finish, I’d accepted what someone else had written -- and I had quoted -- as correct. After I thanked him for emailing me, I had to smile. Why? Because the pointing out of my mistake was perfect timing for the topic God had already laid…
  • Stories of Radio Station’s Service to Listeners Revealed in Anniversary Book
    Stories of Radio Station’s Service to Listeners Revealed in Anniversary Book By Ralph Kurtenbach, Special to ASSIST News Service QUITO, ECUADOR (ANS – February 23, 2017) -- War, peace, looming disaster, personal trauma -- these themes all appear in the pages of a recent commemorative book about the pioneer missionary broadcaster, HCJB La Voz de los Andes (HCJB The Voice of the Andes). On the pages of a Spanish-language book, HCJB 85 Años Pasión por el Servicio (HCJB 85 Years of Passion for Service) anecdotes reveal how Christian media in Ecuador has touched the lives of its listeners. The broadcasts began in 1931 on a 200-watt transmitter when radio was in its infancy around the world. The founding families were in the vanguard of broadcasting, and down through the years, innovation has marked the station’s progress.…
  • Ecuador Radio Station Marks 85 Years in Gala Fashion
    Ecuador Radio Station Marks 85 Years in Gala Fashion By Ralph Kurtenbach, Special to ASSIST News Service QUITO, ECUADOR (ANS – February 22, 2017) -- Let’s face it; compressing 85 years of history into a single evening event is a tough assignment. If an anniversary ceremony for Radio Station HCJB in Ecuador failed to squeeze the story into a capsule, it wasn’t for lack of trying. The Ecuador radio station’s rich history was told on Dec. 1 in Quito with the event’s emcees recounting the background of the media outlet, telling about its dedicated staff and explaining the influence of the station’s impact on society. The special program components blended to relate how simple beginnings—a 200-watt transmitter in a sheepshed -- led to HCJB’s growth in geographic reach accompanied by broadcast technology innovations still…
  • Teams Distribute Food, Shoes, Supplies to Afflicted on World Leprosy Day
    Teams Distribute Food, Shoes, Supplies to Afflicted on World Leprosy Day Gospel for Asia-supported workers give help and hope to those living in isolation A Gospel for Asia (www.gfa.org) News Release – For Immediate Release WILLS POINT, TX (ANS – February 22, 2017) -- People affected with leprosy throughout South Asia received food, shoes, blankets and household supplies as workers supported through Gospel for Asia (GFA) commemorated World Leprosy Day, held each year to promote awareness and prevention. GFA teams also launched new leprosy ministries in Southern and Northern India, while in other parts of the country, leprosy patients received meals and fruit, mosquito nets and blankets. About 6,000 people benefitted from these ministry efforts. “In certain areas of the world, people with leprosy remain among the most rejected and forgotten members of society, yet Jesus…
  • Connecting for Change: The Multi-Faceted Aspects of the Orality Movement
    Connecting for Change: The Multi-Faceted Aspects of the Orality Movement By Jerry Wiles, North America Regional Director, International Orality Network, President Emeritus, Living Water International, Special to ASSIST News Service HOUSTON, TX (ANS – February 20, 2017) -- I first came across the book “Oral Communication of the Scriptures: Insights from African Oral Art,” by Herbert Klem, and started hearing about Orality, Oral Cultures and Oral Learners back in the 1980s. It was a seemingly obscure conversation among a few missionaries, mission leaders and cross-cultural scholars at that time. I began reading and researching on the topics, but there was not a lot available in those days. Little did anyone know at that time that it was the beginning of a very significant paradigm shift in the global church and mission movements. In recent times,…
