BLACK FOREST, CO (ANS – June 28, 2016) – As you know, we are holding our first-ever ASSISTNEWS-A-THON, and while we will continue to bring you fresh news every day this week, we will also bring you fascinating messages from some of our most well-known readers.
They are friends such as Operation Mobilization Founder, George Verwer; veteran entertainer, Pat Boone; Movieguide® founder, Dr. Ted Baehr, Stan Jeter and Gary Lane (both of CBN), and others, who will tell you why the ASSIST News Service is an important news source for them. Also during this week, you and your friends, can partner with us during this violent time in world history.
Your support empowers us to bring news stories from a Christian perspective and vital updates on the persecuted church. These are stories you will often not see anywhere else! Your gift of $25 or more per month, or as a one-off gift, will help us in our goal of raising $25,000 to keep this vital news service free to all our subscribers. (See details below for how you can support ASSIST today).
Our featured ANS friend today is Jerry B. Jenkins, who is, without a doubt, the most prolific Christian author in America today with a wide-array of works, including biographies and novels. His books have sold more than 70 million copies, including the phenomenal Left Behind series (with Dr. Tim LaHaye), minting him as one of the best-selling novelists of all time. In his latest novel, The Valley of the Dry Bones (Worthy Publishing), 66-year-old Jerry B. Jenkins, tells yet another thrilling tale of intrigue. Believe it or not, this is Jerry’s 189th book (and his 131st novel,) and in this one, his futuristic portrayal of a dystopian California is set 17 years into the present drought, earthquakes and wildfires having left the state desolate. (His website is: www.JerryJenkins.com).
So here’s what Jerry has to say about the ASSIST News Service:
In this age of information glut, when I get as much of my news online as on television and in print, I want to be brought up to the minute fast by dispassionate journalists I can trust. I don’t want to be condescended to by writers who assume my political or even theological bent merely because I identify as a Christian.
That’s why I turn to ASSIST News Service every day to be kept abreast of the church around the globe by some of the most seasoned writers in the world. They don’t allow even a hint of denominational bias to taint their reportage on the persecuted church.
I heartily recommend this stellar international Christian news service to anyone who spends even an hour a day online. I’d consider myself wholly uninfomred without ANS.
How you can give:
