Feature: A Mexican Thanksgiving

When we think of Thanksgiving break, many of us imagine sleeping in late, overeating on pumpkin pie and stuffing, watching Netflix, and getting a head start on our holiday shopping.

Feature: The Flying Buffalo

My name is Charles Banji and I’m from Zambia, a country located in Southern Africa. I’m a preacher and evangelist. I also build schools, clinics, and churches around Zambia.

At the end of March, 2019, Carl had a massive stroke affecting his left side. The medical facility to which we were sent saved his life. After more than three weeks, we were sent home with over 30 pages… Read more

Feature: From Convict to Colporteur

“I believe this book saved my life,” says Joshua Holly enthusiastically, holding up an ASI edition of Patriarchs and Prophets. Holly first found the book propping up a TV in his prison cell. “My cellmate handed it to me and said, ‘I think you’ll like this.’” Holly had been raised in a home that considered itself “Christian,” but where drug use was a family affair, much like playing games or watching TV might be for another family.
