  • What Did Your Hands Do Today? (Writer's Opinion)
    What Did Your Hands Do Today? (Writer's Opinion) By Carol Round, Special to ASSIST News Service CLAREMORE, OK (ANS – August 2, 2015) -- “Whatever you do, do it from the heart for the Lord and not for people”—Colossians 3:23 (CEB). Have you ever closely examined your hands or the hands of another? While that might seem like a strange question, a recent devotional made me contemplate my own hands. In a little more than three months, I will celebrate my 62nd birthday. When I compare my hands to the smooth unblemished hands of my grandchildren, I try to recall what mine looked like before they became permanently marked with the telltale signs of aging. More important than the appearance of our hands is what they have accomplished for God. We can choose…
  • De-Stressing to the Sounds of the Monks of Norcia
    De-Stressing to the Sounds of the Monks of Norcia   By Jeremy Reynalds, Senior Correspondent, ASSIST News Service (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.)      NORCIA, ITALY (ANS -- August 1, 2015) -- With our increasingly busy lives, we all need a way to de-stress now more than ever.   Some are turning to spiritual chants to find peace and calm.    Nowhere is this better shown than by those flocking to the Monks of Norcia's album “Benedicta.”   On Billboard’s classical music chart, it’s now at number seven, up last week from eight.    The album, released June 2, has spent eight weeks on the chart, and debuted June 10 at number one.   Made of up 18 men (primarily in their 30s), not only did the monks of Norcia bring music to the ears of America, but also…
  • Nigeria: Mubi During and after the Carnage -- From the perspective of schooling
    Nigeria: Mubi During and after the Carnage -- From the perspective of schooling By Prof. Herbert M. Eze, Special to the ASSIST News Service MUBI, NIGERIA (ANS – July 31, 2015) -- As the academic year 2014/015 ended on Friday July 24, 2015 in Nigeria, it is necessary to tell the unfortunate story of how many schools in northeastern Nigeria with particular reference to those in Mubi, Adamawa State, had less than one term of schooling out of the three terms, due to the activities of the Boko Haram (BH) insurgents. I have delayed in telling the story of what our school suffered amidst the crises that engulfed this part of Nigeria until I personally travelled to Mubi after it was recovered by the Joint Task Force (JTF) to see what is left of the city and its…
  • They’re Not Moses’ Tablets, But They’re Getting God’s Word to The People
    They’re Not Moses’ Tablets, But They’re Getting God’s Word to The People By Dan Wooding, Founder of ASSIST News Service BRAZIL (ANS July 30, 2015) – Who would have dreamed that Android computer tablets would be revolutionizing scripture translation for indigenous tribes in Brazil. These amazing Tablets have come a long way since the days of Moses. And when men from five different tribal groups in Brazil recently received Android computer tablets, along with our translation Studio software, Scripture translation in the local languages took off at breakneck speed. According to Wycliffe Associates, the high-tech tablets were made possible donations for volunteers and donors in the U.S. “Within a day the men had successfully learned how to use the new tablets,” said a spokesperson for Wycliffe Associates. “After that it was full steam ahead. The indigenous translators…
