    Cleveland Abduction: Courage, faith, riveting TV drama (Please use this version) By Rusty Wright, Special to ASSIST News Service (ANS Movie Review) MOUNT HERMON, CA (ANS – April 24, 2015) – No one should have to suffer what Michelle Knight and her fellow captives did in Ariel Castro's house of horrors.  With gripping realism and tender reflection, Lifetime's movie tells this absorbing story from abduction to liberation and beyond. In May 2013, three women missing for years were found in a Cleveland house, finally free from a twisted monster's abuse and enslavement.  Castro abducted the women – Michelle, Amanda Berry, and Gina DeJesus – to help satisfy his sexual appetite.  The film is based on Knight's 2014 book, Finding Me.  Berry and DeJesus release their own book this year.

  • In Ukraine: Medicine and Faith (Writer's Opinion)
    In Ukraine: Medicine and Faith (Writer's Opinion) By Sharon T. Markey, Special to ASSIST News Service (Writer's Opinion) TERNOPIL, UKRAINE (ANS – April 24, 2015) -- My first exposure to the Ukrainian medical system came early on. I moved to Ukraine to begin life with my husband, who had already been living here for ten years with his parents and siblings. At our wedding, one of the groomsmen, my husband’s 11-year-old brother Aaron, fainted. I will never forget the sickening sound of his head striking the tiled floor. He ended up spending about a month in the hospital.  During that time, my mother-in-law practically lived at the hospital with her youngest son, but I didn’t know why. Later I would learn that most nursing care in Ukraine only provides medical services. Nurses give…
  • Genocide: Then and Now – A Religious Liberty Prayer Bulletin Commemorating the Centenary of the Armenian Genocide
    Genocide: Then and Now – A Religious Liberty Prayer Bulletin Commemorating the Centenary of the Armenian Genocide By Elizabeth Kendal, Special to the ASSIST News Service AUSTRALIA (ANS – April 23, 2015) -- On the night of 24 April 1915 the Young Turk government arrested over 200 Armenian intellectuals and community leaders in Constantinople (Istanbul) and dragged them off to prisons in central Anatolia (modern day Turkey). This event, known today as Red Sunday, is generally regarded as the beginning of the Armenian Genocide as it was the first in a series of arrests and deportations that saw 2,345 leading Armenians arrested, deported and (mostly) summarily executed. By 1923 some 1.5 million Armenians (out of a total population of two million) had been savagely murdered or deported and starved to death by Turks who had been incited to kill and who were…
  • Audio ‘proclaimer’ brings gospel to remote villages in Nicaragua
    Audio ‘proclaimer’ brings gospel to remote villages in Nicaragua By Mark Ellis, Special to ASSIST News Service SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA (ANS -- April 23, 2015) -- An intrepid pastor carrying an audio device that plays the Scripture is reaching remote coastal villages and establishing churches among the Miskito people group in Nicaragua. The Miskito are a mixed race ethnic group found in an area extending from from Cape Camarón, Honduras, to Río Grande, Nicaragua along the Miskito Coast. Pastor Abel has traveled days by boat, 10-hours a day, to reach 25 of these remote villages. The coastal hamlets typically have populations of about 600 people, but few know how to read. Even fewer have access to a Bible. Pastor Abel arranges gatherings in the villages where he plays Scripture from his audio device known as a…
  • Composer, Warner Hutchison: Sounds of Beauty and Musical Poetry
    Composer, Warner Hutchison: Sounds of Beauty and Musical Poetry By Brian Nixon, Special to ASSIST News Service GRANTS, NEW MEXICO (ANS – April 22, 2015) —The Spanish painter, Pablo Picasso, said concerning music, “Music is the divine way to tell beautiful, poetic things to the heart.” The connection Picasso makes between the divine, beautiful, and poetic is quite appropriate; it is from the divine that all beauty and poetry geminates. In a recent lecture given by composer, Warner Hutchison (b. 1930), he, too, recognizes the correlation between the three engaging words. The symposium was the Southwest Regional Tuba Euphonium Conference. Hosted by Dr. Richard White and Ken Friedrich, the conference took place in April 2015 in the small community of Grants, New Mexico (one hour west of Albuquerque). With participants, ensembles, and performers descending…
