Congratulations to Focus on the Family celebrating their 40th Anniversary!

Congratulations to the ministry Focus on the Family, which celebrated it’s 40th anniversary this past weekend with a celebratory gathering at it’s headquarters in Colorado Springs, CO.

The ministry, founded in 1977 by Dr. James Dobson, has long been one of the nation’s leading voices for biblical family values. It’s radio program, which goes by the same name and can be heard Monday through Friday on WBYN-FM, is heard on over 3,000 radio facilities in North America and in 27 languages in over 160 countries. The program was inducted into the National Radio Hall of Fame in 2008, and was honored as the 2012 Program of the Year by the National Religious Broadcasters.

Of Focus on the Family’s most influential stances may be it’s strong, biblical anti-abortion position. The ministry has financed ultrasound machine installations in hundreds of pregnancy clinics around the country in an effort to dissuade pregnant women from having an abortion. A 2010 initiative by the ministry has saved the lives of an estimated more than 382,000 preborn babies since it’s inception, by awarding 720 grants.

Of special note during Friday’s 40th anniversary celebration was the presence of a special guest: Vice President Mike Pence.

Pence, a born-again evangelical Christian and strong proponent of traditional marriage and religious freedom, became the first vice president or president to address a gathering at the ministry. He spoke at length about defending the unborn, while telling the crowd that President Donald Trump kept his promise on matters ranging from the Supreme Court nomination of Justice Neil Gorsuch to the president’s plans to cut off Planned Parenthood from funding, an organization which is the largest single provider of abortion in the United States.

Pence’s presence apparently came as a pleasant surprise to at least some at Focus on the Family. When asked about the vice president’s accepting the invitation, Paul Batura, the ministry’s vice president of communications, said, “We, frankly, weren’t expecting him to say yes.”

The event did not come without it’s opposition from Satan, however, the adversary of God and His people. The homosexual advocacy group GLAAD protested outside the ministry headquarters during the event, and even took to Facebook, accusing Focus on the Family of fostering “an environment of hostility towards the Colorado Springs LGBTQ community for decades, not to mention its promotion of strict ‘traditional’ gender roles, creationism in public schools, school prayer, and abstinence-only sex education.”

Could it ever be more truly said that we are living in the times spoken of by the prophet Isaiah, who said, “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!” (Isaiah 5:20, ESV)

Man Walking Ten Hours for Work Receives a Sweet Surprise

Getting to work was not so difficult for Ruby Tuesday’s cook Kevan Finley. That is, until the restaurant he worked in, which was just one mile from his home, shut down. Kevan wasn’t able to find another job near his home, so he continued in his role at another Ruby Tuesday’s branch nine miles away. However, since Kevan did not have a car, he had to walk ten miles a day for a roundtrip 18-mile journey, six days a week.

Additionally, Kevan’s new co-workers at the restaurant in Mentor, Ohio, did not find out about his grueling trek until about three months after he had started working there. Kevan never complained about his circumstances, so the staff decided to secretly plot behind the scenes on his behalf. His co-workers started driving him home, while secretly raising money to buy the 30-year old cook a car. In just 17 days, the restaurant raised over $8,000 for the dedicated man.

Kevan has passed the state driving exam, but he still needs to take the road test to get his license. Then, he plans to buy a truck for his own transportation.

Is there someone around you today that has a special need that you can help meet? It takes us getting outside of ourselves and our own lives, and getting involved in the lives of others, to hear about their struggles. If you ask God to make you a blessing today, that is a prayer He will surely answer.

And what about Kevan? He never complained. He did not feel sorry for himself. He simply did whatever he had to do to get his job done. Sometimes we want special treatment for “going the extra mile,” as we sometimes see it. But Jesus sees things very differently:

“Will any one of you who has a servant plowing or keeping sheep say to him when he has come in from the field, ‘Come at once and recline at table’? Will he not rather say to him, ‘Prepare supper for me, and dress properly, and serve me while I eat and drink, and afterward you will eat and drink’? Does he thank the servant because he did what was commanded? So you also, when you have done all that you were commanded, say, ‘We are unworthy servants; we have only done what was our duty.'” (Luke 17:7-10, ESV)


Feeding Homeless Students in Berks County

Believe it or not, there are multitudes of homeless school students right in Berks County.

“In Berks County, we have more than 1,600 homeless students,” said Kristen Hoffa, the Regional Coordination for Pennsylvania’s Education for Children and Youth Experiencing Homelessness.

The National non-profit, Feed the Children, partnered with Pennsylvania’s Education for Children and Youth Experiencing Homelessness and dropped off food, 1,000 backpacks and 3,000 books at the Berks County Intermediate Unit.

The 90-day faith-based program Family Promise, in Reading, helps families get back on their feet. Other agencies in Berks, York and Philadelphia counties picked up supplies with the help of Reading School District students. The backpacks supplied were filled with school supplies and hygiene products. RSD students went through boxes, organized books and helped load cars.

“I feel nice. I like helping people,” said 10-grade volunteer, Marques Adamson.

It’s more than giving out books; it’s giving hope.

Reading Fire Department Honors Members

The Reading Fire Department held its annual awards ceremony over the weekend of October 8th to honor members of the department for their exemplary service.

Held at the Reading Hospital School of Nursing’s auditorium, the ceremony featured seven members of the department who were honored in front of their family and peers.

Six of the firefighters received the Life Saving Award. One received the Medal of Merit.

Among the award recipients was Firefighter/EMT Justin Aucker, who received the Medal of Merit for searching a burning apartment building without the protection of a hose line to find an occupant on the 2nd Floor. Lieutenant Robert Stichter and Firefighter/EMT Michael Brunner received the Life Saving Award for assisting Aucker in the removal of the occupant from the fire.

The courage exemplified in these men just to save one person’s life brings to mind the many heroic acts done by God-gripped men and women in the pages of Scripture, who risked their lives for the benefit of others. Think of Rahab the harlot, who hid two Jewish spies to Jericho on her roof; Queen Esther, who approached a heathen king about a plan revealed to her to destroy the Jewish people; John the Baptist, who was sent to prison for speaking out against King Herod Antipas, who married his own brother’s wife, Herodias; and of course, Jesus the Christ, who, like John, lost His life. While both John and Jesus were sentenced to a form of death, Jesus, as the Son of God, could have stopped His own death (Matt. 26:53). But He chose not to, in order that you and I could receive forgiveness for our sins and eternal life.

As followers of Christ, we are not to love our “lives unto the death” (Rev. 12:11), but lay them down for the glory of God and the benefit of others.


102-Year-old Crosses Off ‘Being Arrested’ from Her Bucket List

After celebrating her recent birthday, 102-year old Edie Sims thought it was about time to complete one of the final items on her bucket list: sitting in the back of a police car like a criminal.

Sims had committed no crime. Yet, with the help of the St. Louis Police Department in Missouri, the cheerful senior was placed in handcuffs and escorted to the local Five Star Senior Center in the back of a cop car.

The elderly woman had donated over 400 hand-stitched items of clothing to the senior home, so the staff arranged for her to give them out in person, for the first time, and to arrive on the arms of her ‘arresting’ officers.

After passing out her gifts, Edie took some fab photos with the boys in blue to remember the occasion and participated in a game of bingo. She also had some words of advice for a television reporter.

“Keep going, don’t ever stop whatever it is you’re doing and spend some time doing community service,” Edie said before concluding her day of ‘crime’. “Sometimes the person you reach out and touch is the only person that they will talk to in a day.”

What a helpful reminder to us that as Christians, we never really retire. Serving God is a full-time job, and we are in HIs service all day, every day, until we take our last breath. As Paul the apostle said, “So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” (1 Cor. 10:31, ESV)

It was a doubles exhibition tennis match of world champions, but that didn’t stop Rafael Nadal from putting the brakes on when he saw a distressed mother in the crowd.

Nadal was about to serve in to Carlos Moya and John McEnroe during their game in Manacor, Mallorca when he saw a crying woman gesturing to a steward up in the stands.

When heads started to turn, the arena realized that she was a mother looking for her lost child who had wandered away during the match.

The audience searched the seats until they found little Clara crying a ways away from her mother.

When the woman scooped up her weeping daughter, the crowd rose to tumultuous applause and play resumed.

Rafael Nadal stops match against John McEnroe so …

The clay-court legend was playing an exhibition match against the American on his home island of Majorca when he showed his softer side Rafael Nadal dramatically …

Jesus told a parable in Luke 15:1-7 to judgmental scribes and Pharisees about a man who has one hundred sheep, yet is willing to leave ninety-nine of them to pursue the one that leaves the fold. Just as Rafael Nadal stopped play and the whole crowd turned it’s interest away from the match to help find a missing girl, God and all of heaven has is more concerned with the salvation of sinners. The Lord and His angels find more joy in one of His creation coming to repentance and saving faith in Him than in anyone who already knows Him.

Are there any lost sheep around you today that the Lord might want to use you to help bring back into the fold, just as He once did with you?

High School Teacher Honored Days Before His Death
A Nashville high school teacher knew that his days were numbered here on Earth. But he never could have imagined the loving surprise he would receive just days before his death.

After a long battle with esophageal cancer, Ben Ellis stopped his chemotherapy sessions. Ellis had continued teaching Latin and Bible study even though he was undergoing cancer treatments. When the cancer spread to his lungs, however, Ben concluded his chemo and became resigned to his fate.

That’s why 400 teens from Nashville’s Christ Presbyterian Academy gathered outside Ellis’s window to sing for him.

The school staff heard of the news of his pending death, and organized a sing along tribute at the teacher’s home. Ellis passed away a few days later.

“It was a place where the veil between heaven and Earth felt very thin,’” Christ Presbyterian headmaster Nate Morrow told TODAY. Ben told the students he loved them and that they “need to continue to love each other as well.”

Parents in Daniel Boone Concerned After a Boy is Left on School Bus
Five-year old Prince Oquendo thought Tuesday, September 6th would be his first day of kindergarten. However, the young boy never made it to the classroom that day. Instead, he was left on his school bus for four hours as the bus sat parked in a lot.

Some concerned parents were given the opportunity to express their concerns and ask questions on Thursday, September 8th according to the Daniel Boone Area School District’s website, in a meeting with the school’s staff.

The boy was eventually found on the bus at 1 p.m., before the boy’s mother took him to the hospital, where he was treated for dehydration. The official temperature in Berks County at 1 p.m. was 85 degrees.

New Rhoads Transportation, the district’s transportation provider, said its driver failed to follow the company’s protocol by not checking the bus before he departed. The driver was terminated.

How important details and thoroughness are in our lives. Simple neglect of a seemingly unnecessary, routine task on the job forced a young child into exchanging his first day of school for a hospital visit, and also cost someone his employment. In a parable about honesty and money, Jesus said, “One who is faithful in a very little also is faithful in much, and one who is dishonest in a very little is also dishonest in much.” (Luke 16:10, ESV)

Although the immediate reference to Jesus’ words has to do with money, the application extends much further than that. If we are not faithful in what appears to be the small, insignificant tasks of life, 1) we cannot and should not expect God to promote us, and 2) the results can be dire in our own lives, as well as the lives of others. Do we complete every task on the job? Do we show up on time? Are we honest with our spouse?

When no one else is watching, God is watching.


Young Lady Wins Year’s Worth of Free Pizza; Donates it all to Homeless Shelter
19-year-old Hannah Spooner of Detroit won a year’s worth of free pizza from Little Caesar’s, and donated every slice to the less fortunate.

Spooner said from the moment the pizza chain called to inform her that she had won the drawing for $500 of free pizza for a year, she knew she wanted to give it to a worthy cause. Spooner then connected with a few non-benefit organizations locally, before settling on Covenant House, an office for destitute youth.

Carolyn Millard, the development manager of the shelter, said they serve three meals a day for any youth in need. And their favorite food?


Jesus said it best: “It is more blessed to give than to receive.” (Acts 20:35)

He also promised us that if we give, it will be given unto us, in abundance. (Luke 6:38) The question is, do we really believe that? When we withhold what God is asking us to give, particularly if we withhold something that we do not need, we are simply walking in unbelief, and betraying the greed that is in our heart.

What is God asking you to give today, that someone else needs more than you?

Louisiana has experienced the worst natural disaster on American soil since Hurricane Sandy…

Louisiana has experienced the worst natural disaster on American soil since Hurricane Sandy struck the northeast nearly four years ago, according to the Red Cross. By the numbers, the aftermath is almost mind-boggling: 60,000 homes damaged, nearly seven trillion (yes, trillion) gallons of rain (including over 31 inches in one day), 13 deaths, 20,000 people rescued and an estimated cost of $30 million.

“Thousands of people in Louisiana have lost everything they own and need our help now,” said Brad Kieserman, the Red Cross’ vice president of disaster services operations and logistics.

Through Franklin Graham’s Samaritan’s Purse national relief organization, you can do just that. Samaritan’s Purse hit the ground in Louisiana almost immediately after the disaster, where volunteers have been cleaning out debris, removing wet floors and walls and spraying for mold, in hopes of salvaging the homes of countless thousands of people, many of whom do not have flood insurance. Fox News’ Sean Hannity was on the ground at a local church on Monday, August 22, where Samaritan’s Purse volunteers are currently headquartered. His one-hour TV special gave a graphic look into the devastation of local neighborhoods and the tremendous need of the citizens.

Micronesia Mission Report (Rota) from Ryan Schiavo

Micronesia Mission Report (Rota)

Dear friends,

Greetings this month from Pennsylvania, after spending exactly two months in the little-known-to-many area of our planet called Micronesia. This journey included seven islands, two countries, one U.S. commonwealth and one U.S. territory. That’s not counting Honolulu, Hawaii, where I spent my first night of this mission sleeping very uncomfortably in the airport (in transit to the Marshallese capital of Majuro), and had my sunglasses stolen in the morning before being denied the opportunity to fly standby to Majuro because the United Airlines flight was full. It was a disappointing start for sure, but the Lord had other plans as I rerouted to the U.S. territory of Guam, which completely changed the complexion of the whole trip. Looking back, His hand was in every detail and step of this journey, probably the most challenging and also most important long-term mission I’ve ever undertaken, as the Lord taught me many things I could never learn in a classroom and stretched my faith in a way almost like never before. I have one more report from Micronesia to share later, but for now, I hope this update from one uniquely small and relatively unknown island encourages and stirs your heart for the lost souls of men and women as we move into ever darker days, and look for the return of Jesus Christ.

There is a place in the Northern Mariana Islands called Rota, the self-proclaimed “Friendly Island.” I wanted to see just how friendly it was, so I prayerfully flew there from Guam on a Saturday afternoon with no prior connections, nowhere to stay and no specific plan at all; but with big expectations of what the Lord would do. No plan, except to listen to the Holy Spirit as best as possible and allow Him to provide a roof over my head and doors for the gospel that I could not open on my own. The Lord aligned things from the beginning, as I met an American girl on my flight who was traveling for her job with the local law enforcement from the island of Saipan. Once we arrived in Rota, she offered me a ride to a hotel in town so I could check the rates. This fortunately meant I did not have to pay an exorbitant amount for a rental car. I checked the rates at two hotels – both reasonably priced, one with an ocean view – but was determined that the Lord was going to provide somewhere for me to stay. So, I put my duffel bag over my shoulder and started walking down a typically quiet street for this island, asking the Lord to lead my steps and provide a “man of peace.” Not five minutes later, a pickup truck pulled up next to me. A middle-aged local man asked, “What are you doing? Do you need a ride?” I told him I was a missionary who had come alone and was hoping someone would take me in, because I did not want to pay for a room. He thought for a moment, then told me to get in the truck, before driving me to a man’s house nearby, to whom he explained the situation. Who was I being introduced to? None other than an evangelical pastor named Tony Reyes (pronounced ree-gis), one of the only evangelical pastors on this tiny island of just 3,000 people, which has just one or two small Protestant churches and very few born again Christians.

Tony was gracious enough to take me in, and a friendship developed between us quickly during my short stay. Tony was temporarily living alone while his wife stayed in Guam due to a medical condition. It became obvious very quickly that he loved this little island and the people of it. He gave me a chance to minister at his small house church on Sunday morning, and took me all over the island to witness to and pray for people he knew. Among those was a Muslim man from Bangladesh. It’s amazing to see the influence of Islam even in some of the world’s most remote island regions. There are some countries/commonwealths in Micronesia that have made it very clear that they are not interested in the Muslim faith at all, but the Northern Mariana Islands is not one of them. Tony had developed a relationship with this man over the years, so he was very welcoming to us. The conversation quickly turned spiritual and a tremendous discussion ensued. He even allowed us to pray for him before we left. Meeting Tony and seeing his heart for this tiny and spiritually-needy island reminded me how strategically God places His people. He truly does have a remnant of Christ-loving, evangelically-minded people all over the earth.

The greatest memory from my time in Rota started in a small Japanese restaurant on a Monday morning. I read online that the NBA Finals between Golden State and Cleveland was going to a seventh and deciding game. Sensing that this could be a classic in the NBA annals, I sought a place to watch the game, which started at 10:30 a.m. local time. During the second quarter, an American guy about my age walked in very proudly, ordered a beer and sat down next to me. We began talking about the game, America and our work. His name was Tillman, a court-appointed defense attorney with a live-in American girlfriend on the nearby island of Saipan, who had traveled alone to Rota for work, just as the girl I met on the plane. In fact, they were working together on a case with some others. As we watched the game, I could feel pride and arrogance just emanating from this guy. His language went from bad to worse, including the repeated use of God’s name in vain. My spirit was becoming deeply grieved by his language. Finally, after another blasphemy, I turned to him and said, “Why do you keep taking God’s name in vain?” He looked at me as sheepish as sheepish could be and said, “I’m sorry. It’s a bad habit.” I said, “It’s blasphemy.” He did not really respond, but was clearly embarrassed and under heavy conviction. I asked him if he believed in God, and he said not really. I then asked him if he wanted to discuss it more, to which he responded that it was a long story. I said, “I have time.” He said, “Maybe later.”

I have learned over the years, particularly through working on the streets, that there are some types of non-believers who need to be directly confronted, even exposed publicly, in their sin. It is for their own good. What types of people fall into this category? Well, let’s look at Jesus with the Pharisees. Take the story of the woman caught in adultery. Those Pharisees tried to publicly embarrass her first, then Him. What did Jesus do? He turned the tables on them by embarrassing them publicly. What was Jesus going after? Their pride and self-righteousness. My belief is that when someone is in such public blatant pride and is making a public mockery of the name of Christ, then, if the Holy Spirit is leading and the situation allows for it, this is fair grounds to turn the tables on that person in defense of our Lord and out of love for that person. Does God need us to defend Him? No. But if we love Him, why wouldn’t we? I have done this countless times in London and seen 1) the conviction of the Holy Spirit followed by 2) a softening of the heart, which leads to 3) a very productive, respectful conversation about the Lord Jesus. Is it really biblical to challenge a non-believer in his sin like this? Read what the Bible says in Proverbs.

“He who says to the wicked, “You are righteous,” him the people will curse; nations will abhor him. But those who rebuke the wicked will have delight, and a good blessing will come upon them.” (Prov. 24:24-25)

From this point forward, everything changed between Tillman and I. He went on to tell me that in his line of work, people always talk like this. He said it’s not an excuse, but just a bad habit. He then told me about the very liberal college that he attended in Washington state which had no grading system. None of this surprised me, but what did surprise me a bit was how humble he became. His language and behavior became much more respectful. We watched the rest of the game together enjoyably, talking basketball and even laughing at times. Since moving to Micronesia, he had become an avid snorkeler. When the hard-fought and memorable game ended so emotionally with LeBron James in tears, hoisting the championship trophy for his hometown team (Come on, admit it, you were at least somewhat happy for the guy. I don’t really even like LeBron, and I was almost in tears.), a bond had really formed between Tillman and I. We both had the rest of the day free, so he invited me snorkeling with him. I had never before snorkeled in my life, but had secretly always wanted to. It turned out to be one of the most amazing recreational experiences of my life. He took me to a remote, private area which is not even know to the public, way out in the beautiful blue-green water. I stood (or swam) in awe of God’s creation underwater (multi-colored fish, rocks and coral), while marveling at His power, which is what brought this whole situation about in the first place. After about an hour of tiring swimming and exploring the Pacific Ocean, Tillman and I found some shade from the blazing sun and spent one more hour finally talking about things that really matter. I shared the gospel message and my testimony with him, including my time at ESPN and being led out of that world to pursue the Lord’s work overseas. He told me his life story, including the resistance that he has always had to organization and authority (hence his choosing that college in Washington state), and the reason for his unbelief. He said many things that I will remember, but probably what will stick with me the most was his telling me that he appreciated my rebuking him for taking God’s name in vain, that he did not have a problem with it. Even if he did, it would not have mattered to me, but it was a welcomed assurance that God’s Spirit is able to convict through very few and simple words and that the law of God, which Tillman had broken so many times as a sinner (as have you and I), is just as powerful today as it has always been. (Remember, the guy is a lawyer, so he’s very familiar with the ins and outs of the natural law.) Read Paul the apostle’s words from the Book of Romans.

“What shall we say, then? Is the law sinful? Certainly not! Nevertheless, I would not have known what sin was had it not been for the law. So then, the law is holy, and the commandment is holy, righteous and good.” (Romans 7:7, 12)

After our conversation, Tillman drove me around the island, as we continued to talk about God, life and the beauty of Micronesia. He showed me things I would have never seen were it not for his rental car. That evening, we had dinner together before finally saying goodbye. Truly, a “good blessing” had “come upon” me, as that above verse from Prov. 24 promised. I will probably never see Tillman again, but there are very few evangelical encounters I’ve ever had in my life that I will remember like this one. After all, it basically lasted all day. And what was the catalyst for the whole spiritual discussion? The law of God (a simple defense of one of the Ten Commandments), one of the most misunderstood and seldom preached topics today in modern evangelical Christianity. Sadly, even the mere mention of the law of God has become almost unequivocally associated with legalism in some of today’s most prominent evangelical circles. What would two of the greatest revivalists of all-time think? John Wesley once told a young lay preacher to “preach 90 percent law and 10 percent grace,” while Charles Finney often held two outdoor evangelical meetings in one day. In the early meeting, he would preach nothing but the law. Then, once the people came under heavy conviction, he would tell them to come back later if they would like to hear about grace. It’s been reported that the retention rate of those saved under Finney’s preaching was about 80 percent. In other words, only about 20 percent of those who made professions of faith ever walked away.

Friends, let’s not forget that God is unchanging, that His Word is as powerful today as it has always been, and that, in spite of all the man-made methodologies and carnal ideas that are lining the shelves of our Christian bookstores and filling up our TV airwaves and large conference venues in the name of evangelism today, the use of God’s Law to bring sinners to the mirror of who they really are is often the most biblical and wisest method to pave the way for the gospel of grace and salvation to be presented. Especially for those without Christ who DO NOT SEE THEIR NEED FOR GOD! In an era in history where so many hearts are hardened, so many have their own view of God, people are told that everything is relative, they’re not really sinners, they’re just born this way, be whoever you want to be, etc., etc., remember that God, who gave the Law, did not give up on the barbarous Saul of Tarsus, the most unlikely to ever follow the Lord and write these words one day under grace as the great apostle Paul:

“But before faith came, we were kept under guard by the law, kept for the faith which would afterward be revealed. Therefore the law was our tutor to bring us to Christ, that we might be justified by faith. But after faith has come, we are no longer under a tutor.” (Gal. 3:23-25)

In other words, first the law, then faith. Not grace, grace, grace; faith, faith, faith, with no law.

Brothers and sisters, let’s preach the word, the WHOLE COUNSEL OF GOD, with wisdom and power, to our friends, our families, our neighbors and our co-workers, and NOT BE ASHAMED to do it! God will empower you. You are not alone. Will some people like it? Of course they won’t. But so what? They didn’t like Jesus for it either. He is our model, not the “American dream” or “your best life now.” I don’t know about you, but I’ve just about had enough of this 21st century plastic, fake, man-controlled, watered-down foolishness. Much of what we hear and read today in modern evangelical preaching, books and conferences you will find absolutely zero biblical backing for, especially in the Book of Acts. These are the ideas and precepts of carnal men, many of whom are driven by love of their own names, ministries, denominations and buildings, and most of all, by money. The hour is too late for us NOT to follow God’s ways of doing things. America is headed for hell faster than any of us realize, and without a love for the truth, we are on an unavoidable one-way road there with no possibility of turning around. God will reward you richly on that great day for upholding His Word and His great Name, even as you do it “with persecutions” (Mark 10:30).

Living only by His grace,
