Feature: A Stroke of Healing

Everyday emergencies and stresses creep into our lives uninvited and affect us in unnoticed ways. Last year in the Camp Fire, the loss of our home and the chaos that lasted for months conspired against my husband’s health. 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.

Feature: The Little Pastors

Mindanao, Philippines – Mike Cordes sits on a riverbank, taking in the sounds of the jungle: insect wings buzz, the river murmurs under a carpet of water lilies, a Kingfisher chirps nearby. He is listening for the rumble of motorcycle engines which will herald the arrival of his medical missions trainees.

Feature: Ayyad Meets Jesus

Ayyad was the leader of a terrorist cell in an east African country. He had directed many brutal operations against people suspected of being foreigners or traitors to Islam. He believed, as many do, that performing an act of jihad (a struggle or fight against the enemies of Islam) such as committing suicide while killing others will allow one to earn instant entrance into eternal paradise… Read more
