Missions Radio with David Butts Chairman of The National Day of Prayer

National Day of Prayer Events Spark Interest in Freedom to Pray

Non-Profit Organization Working to Stop T-Mobile from Corporate Greed

 

WHAT:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Millions of individuals around the country will meet together in both small and large groups and communities this week to lift the nation in prayer on the annual National Day of Prayer May 4. Religious leaders such as Anne Graham Lotz and Dave Butts will gather for the National Observance in Washington, D.C., from 7:30 – 9 p.m. Thursday evening.

 

Others who can’t gather in person will call to participate via phone on free conference call-in lines with other prayer warriors to answer the call to prayer.

 

However, for many of those who call in to free prayer conference lines who happen to be T-Mobile customers, they will hear a message telling them that they will be charged an additional $.01 per minute to participate in that call.

 

T-Mobile began adding these extra fees a few months ago, effectively curtailing nationwide prayer call participation for many of the hundreds of thousands of individuals using this technology for spiritual connection.

Freedom to Pray is a grassroots effort that was launched to bring attention to T-Mobile’s egregious actions and provide a means of response for faithful prayer warriors and the individuals and groups who support them. Individuals can advocate against T-Mobile and on behalf of keeping prayer lines free for everyone, including people of all faiths, by signing the petition at www.freedomtopray.org, and following many of the other suggestions listed on the website for taking action.

 

WHO:

Individuals available to comment on Freedom to Pray include:

 

Dave Butts, president of Harvest Prayer Ministries and chairman of the board for the National Day of Prayer. He oversees multiple free prayer calls through his ministry, and knows of countless individuals who have had to give up participation in these collective gatherings since T-Mobile started adding such charges. He believes this is an attack on the right to exercise faith freely and that T-Mobile is out of line in trying to impede religious freedom.

 

Kay Horner, executive director of the Helper Connection and Awakening America Alliance, which encourages and helps arrange national and local prayer events and prayer conference lines to bring about spiritual transformation in our nation. Kay is passionate about helping people of faith unite in these efforts, and is greatly saddened by T-Mobile’s actions which restrict that participation.

 

WHEN &

WHERE:

 

Thursday, May 5

Local event details available here:

http://www.nationaldayofprayer.org/post_or_find_an_event

 

Freedom to Pray spokespersons are available via phone throughout the day

ADDITIONAL

DETAILS:

The nation’s first call to prayer occurred in 1775, when the Continental Congress asked the colonies to pray for wisdom in forming a nation. Prayer has remained a vital element in our nation’s history, especially important to leaders such as President Lincoln, who proclaimed of a day of “humiliation, fasting, and prayer” in 1863. The official National Day of Prayer was signed into law by a joint resolution of the United States Congress in 1952, and continues today as an interfaith gathering in the Capitol and on courthouse steps around the nation.

 

Freedom to Pray is a response to our nation’s continued need of prayer and a way to advocate for those who participate via phone but have had this freedom curtailed by T-Mobile’s excess charges.  The Freedom to Pray website, www.freedomtopray.org, will allow users to sign an online petition expressing concern about T-Mobile’s attack on prayer, requesting a call to action. In addition, social media tools will be available for easy sharing with friends and family so that they, too, may become informed and involved in efforts to #KeepPrayerFree.

 

Missions Radio Interview with Tom Stewart, Author of “The Broken Scout a Story of Abuse and Redemption”

May 16th, 2017

The Broken SCOUT

A Story of Abuse and Redemption

In his tell-all memoir, The Broken Scout: A Story of Abuse and Redemption (Redemption Press, April 4, 2017), Stewart reveals never-before-told details of the childhood stolen from him by his abuser, bringing readers along his journey through the physical abuse, its psychological aftermath, cancer, divorce and the loss of a child, revealing how his faith in God led to healing, redemption, and forgiveness.

“I never imagined my own life story was going to be published with its dramatic themes of horrific abuse, chaos, and tragedy,” writes Stewart. “I embrace the compassion that my difficult circumstances have given me. I’ve learned how to understand the weary, the weak, and the faint—because I was one of them.”

Conditioned to obey without question by a proud, domineering mother, Tom was brainwashed, abused, and threatened with a gun by his Scout leader. Ten years of hidden abuse set the stage for chaos in his personal relationships, and the fallout in his family as an adult. This inspiring first-person story takes the reader beyond the abuse to Tom’s lifelong challenges of dealing with the aftermath as a man. From helping bring Boy Scouts of America to accountability and justice, to surviving cancer and family upheavals, including divorce, drug abuse, and tragedy, Tom Stewart relied on his faith in God to see him through.

April 10th, 2017
00:0000:00

AUTHOR DEVEN WALLACE CALLS FOR MOMS
TO BE SPIRITUAL WARRIORS IN THEIR PARENTING

 

Let me first say this is a book that any and all mothers should have and read..It will change your perspective, in a great way.

There is a spiritual war raging against the next generation. Through her new book, The Warrior We Call Mom, Deven Wallace urges moms to break out of the box of “normal” and dare to be led by the Spirit in their day-to-day parenting. Bolstered by scriptural examples, this book identifies the Spirit-led mothers of the Bible and inspires modern-day moms to raise their children to have a passion for God.

 

Discussing topics such as how to restore a wayward child and how to “clothe” rather than control, Wallace expounds on how to respond to the spiritual attacks against this rising generation of children. She emphasizes the value in shaping children through godly discipline and decision-making, pinpointing the power of godly words and spiritual growth.

Missions Radio Interview with Author Michelle McClain-Walters “The Anna Anointing”

April 4th, 2017
00:0000:00

PROPHETESS MICHELLE MCCLAIN-WALTERS REVEALS
HOW WOMEN CAN HEAR THE VOICE OF GOD


In the Bible the prophetess Anna persisted in fasting and prayer until the revelation of Jesus on the earth for the first time. Now in preparation for the Lord’s second coming, prophetess Michelle McClain-Walters’s new book, The Anna Anointing, teaches our generation of women how to operate in a similar anointing as Anna.

 

Highlighting four keys for stirring the gifts and activating the Anna anointing, this book will help readers to boldly change their lives and those they influence by developing an ear to hear God’s heart. Women can reach a new level of power, strength, insight, and vision for the plan that God has for their lives.  Filled by the spirit of grace and supplication, women can proclaim the gospel to an increasingly humanistic society.

 

“This radical call to women to be influential and powerful will require training and equipping. It will involve sacrifice and faith to believe God in the face of adversity and opposition,” McClain-Walters says. “God calls us to embrace His future with such a passion that even the present can be given up for that promised future. God calls us to trust the promise giver, who is a promise keeper, with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength.”

Missions Radio Interview with Best Selling Author Joel Rosenberg

A very insightful interview on the interpretation of Islamic Radicalism and how it should be addressed by President Trump with Joel Rosenberg

Best Selling Author Urges President Trump To Deliver Major Address
Defining 'Radical Islamic Terrorism'
 
As the President rallies coalition of 68 nations in Washington today
to work together more closely to defeat the Islamic State,
new poll reveals Americans want their leaders to define the enemy
 
 A new survey commissioned by Middle East expert and New York Timesbestselling author Joel C. Rosenberg reveals Americans believe we are losing the war against the Islamic State and fear ISIS is preparing to launch catastrophic terror attacks inside the homeland. The poll also reveals Americans want their leaders to define the nature of the enemy we face.
 
 .

"Mr. Trump is the first president in American history to use the phrase 'radical Islamic terrorism,' which he referred to in his Inaugural Address and his Joint Address to Congress," said Joel C. Rosenberg, author of Without Warning, a political thriller that provides a fictional look into what could happen if leaders do not take seriously the threats of our enemies and are blindsided by a series of catastrophic terror attacks by ISIS inside the American homeland."Neither Presidents Bush nor Obama chose to use this term.

00:0000:00

This is one of my favorite interviews, out of hundreds, so far..I love what Missions Aviation Fellowship stands for and what they do, every hour of everyday..This is a must hear.

You'll find MAF in the hardest-to-reach locations, where people live isolated from the rest of the world, cut off from the most basic necessities. Our highly trained pilots maneuver Cessna and KODIAK aircraft through rugged terrain. And while passengers might hold their breath, MAF pilots skillfully land at short, unimproved airstrips on the sides of mountains, in jungle clearings, or on tropical rivers—to bring medicine and doctors, disaster relief, education, evangelists, Bible translators, food supplies, agriculture and clean water projects, and more. Why do we do it? Because we’re passionate about sharing Christ's love beyond where the road ends

Missions Radio Interview with Athena Dean Holtz

March 9th, 2017
00:0000:00

 

From a young age, Athena Dean Holtz chased affirmation and attention from all the wrong sources, leaving her empty and alone. A victim of physical abuse and spiritual deception, she was deceived by Scientology, forays into mysticism and 12 years in a restrictive and legalistic cult, she lost everything—her marriage, relationships, home, business, money and reputation. In her forthcoming book Full Circle: Coming Home to the Faithfulness of God (Redemption Press, Feb. 27, 2017), Holtz candidly tells her story of self-discovery, redemption and freedom as she surrendered to Jesus.

 

“This is the story of how God brought me full circle,” writes Holtz. “How he brought me home . . . to a place I had always longed for, but never knew how to find.”

 

In Full Circle, Holtz vulnerably shares her journey and gives readers a front-row seat to her story of a shattered life restored. An important story for anyone who has questioned his or her worth or direction; Holtz proves that anyone who believes God and invites Him to join in their trials welcomes the result of His triumph. Full Circle offers not only her life story but biblical answers to the raw questions she asked during the peaks and valleys of her life.

 

“Knowing how much God loves me, I am finding my significance in Him rather than in what I do or with whom I am associated.”

Missions Radio Interview with Dr. Del Tackett..One Night Showing “Is Genesis History?”

February 22nd, 2017
00:0000:00

 

 

 

ONE NIGHT EVENT—THURSDAY, FEB. 23

‘IS GENESIS HISTORY?’ DOCUMENTARY

TAKES ON OUR BIGGEST QUESTIONS

 

WHAT               In the enlightening new documentary, IS GENESIS HISTORY?, Dr. Del Tackett leads audiences on a remarkable journey through evidence supporting historic claims in the Book of Genesis with renowned scientists and Bible scholars.

WHO                Featuring host Dr. Del Tackett, creator of The Truth Project, IS GENESIS HISTORY?, from Compass Cinema, is produced and directed by Thomas Purifoy, Jr.

WHEN              In cinemas for one night Thursday, February 23, at 7 p.m. local time, from Fathom Events.

 

SYNOPSIS       Traveling across the continent, Dr. Del Tackett talks to experts in geology, biology, astronomy, archaeology, the Bible and more—seeking answers to centuries-long questions surrounding the book of Genesis:

 

  • Was the universe created in six literal days?
  • Did humans evolve?
  • Were Adam and Eve real?
  • Was there a global flood?
  • What happened to the dinosaurs?

 

From immense available evidence about our origins, two histories arise. But which is correct? IS GENESIS HISTORY? presents a positive, evidenced-based case for the Bible’s historical reliability.

 

TOO MUCH ‘US V. THEM’? ANOTHER CONVERSATION IS POSSIBLE

On both sides, discussions of life’s origins quickly turn negative. In the

exciting new documentary, IS GENESIS HISTORY?, Director Thomas

Purifoy, Jr. takes another road, laying out conversational, understandable

specifics for the Book of Genesis as history. Ask Purifoy and Dr. Del Tackett

about the importance of history in this debate, especially as it relates to the Bible and science.

 

FROM A 10-YEAR-OLD’S QUESTIONS TO A FEATURE DOCUMENTARY

Seeing his 10-year-old daughter lose certainty about the Bible’s historical reliability, filmmaker Thomas Purifoy, Jr. realized he couldn’t clearly explain his own beliefs. And from that “Ah ha” came this feature-length documentary. Ask Purifoy about the seminal conversation with his 10-year-old, and what he discovered in his search to understand how these issues relate to students.

 

HOW TO BUILD A CASE

The evidence isn’t new, but our ability to analyze and decipher it grows at the speed of technology. How do new data and new discoveries send us back for another perspective on longstanding evidence?

 

WHY IS GENESIS IMPORTANT TODAY?

A lot of Christians may wonder why Genesis matters to our lives. Is it really a big deal to think the earth is old, or that humans evolved? Ask Purifoy and Dr. Del Tackett about the importance of Genesis to our lives today.

Missions Radio Interview with John Finch of “The Father Effect”

February 3rd, 2017
00:0000:00

 John Finch grew up the youngest of 3 boys in a suburb of Dallas where he lost his father to suicide at age 11. As a young man, John did anything he could to avoid confronting the wounds he suffered as a result of being fatherless. His craving for affirmation from a father who was not there to provide it, led him to seek that affirmation from the world in many unhealthy ways. In an attempt to find value as a man, he created a false persona that left him completely unfulfilled. His life was based on the pursuit of money in order to prove his success and he became a social alcoholic as he strived to be the life of every party and gain the attention of those around him.

     It was only when John realized and dealt with the unresolved issues of his father wound that he was able to become truly fulfilled. On April 10th, 2009, he finally came face to face with the issues that drove him to seek approval from a father who was not there to give it to him. By forgiving his father and recognizing what it truly means to be a man by God’s standard, he became a new man, husband and father.   

     John seeks to break down the barriers that prevent men and women from addressing deep rooted anger and hurt from the wounds they have suffered in this life by candidly and openly sharing his story, his failings, and his path to a new way of life. John’s mission is to educate, encourage and equip men to become the fathers they were created to be, and to help men walk in daily awareness of their significant and lifelong influence as fathers. Through The Father Effect Movie, John shares stories and messages that will move viewers to a new awareness about the everlasting impact of fathers and the importance of forgiveness and openness in the relationships of this world.  

     John has been married for 21 years and has three beautiful daughters. He is incredibly thankful for the second chance to be a father and husband who can offer himself to those he loves without the burden of the bitterness and anger that overshadowed his life for so many years.

Pure Flix & NHCLC Join Forces to Increase
Hispanic Presence in Film Industry
 
Global partnership aligns vision, influence, assets & resources
to develop faith & family media
 
DALLAS, Nov. 7, 2016 – During a Facebook Live event on Friday, Nov. 4, Pure Flix COO Steve Fedyski and Vice President of Global Strategic Alliances Franklin Santagate, announced with Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference (NHCLC)/CONEL, a formal partnership between the No. 1 Christian production studio in the world, Pure Flix, and the world's largest Hispanic Christian organization, NHCLC.
 

pureflixteamnhclc.jpg

Although Latinos purchase 25 percent of all movie tickets sold, recent studies show that Latino community is one of the least represented population segments in speaking roles in film and television; in 2015, there was only one Latino-centric film released by a major studio.
 
"Hispanics engage movies more than any other ethnic group in America; however, there is this issue with the content and depictions of the Latino community that has not been well-represented," said Rev. Rodriguez. "We aren't all gang bangers. We're not all narco-traffickers from Latin America. We are God-fearing, hard-working people. This alliance will expose our community and engage us in a way we've never been able to before."
 
The organizations have committed to a long-term exclusive strategic alliance for five years that aligns common vision, influence, assets and resources to develop faith and family media. Pure Flix and NHCLC hope that this partnership increases the presence of Hispanic themes, actors, directors and stories in the film and entertainment industry.
 
One key aspect of the partnership will develop internships for Latinos seeking to learn all aspects of the industry.
 
"We want people that have the core values and the love and hope of Christ infiltrated all through the industry because then that transformed leader or individual will be a transformation agent in the culture," said Fedyski. 
 
Additionally,initiatives included in this alliance are:
  • Casting Latinos in the film industry in more prominent and meaningful roles;
  • Carefully assessing cultural references and plot lines in films to ensure the portrayal of the Latino population is accurately depicted, respectful, and free form stereotypes and stigma; and
  • Increasing the content readily available for the Spanish-speaking community on PureFlix.com.

Missions Radio Interview with Dan Wallrath of Operation Finally Home 11/11/2016

What if you felt called to do something that seemed like a completely impossible undertaking given the limited amount of time and resources you had?

Texas-based custom home builder, Dan Wallrath experienced this first hand in 2005 when asked to help a stranger who needed his home remodeled so he and his wife could take care of their son, a U.S. Marine Core Lance Cpl. who had sustained severe head injuries from an IED explosion while serving his first tour of duty in Iraq. Without the funds, and with no real plan, Dan said yes to this desperate father, completing the family’s home renovations a few months later.

Soon after, Operation FINALLY HOME was born as a 501C3 nonprofit organization with a mission to build homes for wounded, ill or injured veterans, surviving spouses and their families.

Building Hope: What Happens When God Changes Our Plans to Accomplish His is the story of Dan’s journey as he followed his call to serve America’s military heroes, starting with a team of one and growing to lead one of the nation’s most respected non-profit organizations serving U.S. veterans. This inspirational memoir reveals how stepping out in faith turned into a lifetime commitment to build homes for those who have sacrificed while wearing America’s uniform in defense of our freedoms and our way of life.

How We Can Change Our Nation, with John Bevere

John believes that so many “Christians” are caught up in the election because they are living life with a 70-80 year perspective, instead living life with an eternal perspective.  “When you live life with eternal goals, your whole focus changes…you start make decisions differently, pursue things differently, your interest become different,” says John. John believe that it’s all about getting your focus right…aligning with the King and His Kingdom who is eternal and never changes.

 

“Driven By Eternity” book excerpt:

To capture the best view of eternity, we must look at God Himself. He is not limited in power, knowledge, wisdom, understanding, or glory—just to name a few. He is self-existent; forever He was and forever He will be God. He is called the “Everlasting Father” (Isaiah 9:6).

 

He is called the “King of eternity” (1 Timothy 1:17 AMP). All that is eternal is found in Him; in fact, eternity itself is found in Him. All that is outside of Him is temporal and will change.

 

No matter how good, noble, powerful, or enduring it may seem…it will eventually cease. Even the earth and universe will change, but He will not:

 

“Lord, in the beginning you laid the foundation of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands. Even they will perish, but you remain forever. They will wear out like old clothing. You will roll them up like an old coat.” (Hebrews 1:10–12 NLT)

 

Not only will He never cease, but He remains eternally the same. Scripture declares:

 

“All flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of the grass. The grass withers, and its flower falls away, but the word of the Lord endures forever. Now this is the word which by the gospel was preached to you.” (1 Peter 1:24–25)

 

God is eternal; therefore, what He speaks is eternal. He cannot lie, nor can what He says be broken. If it weren’t so, then all would collapse into utter darkness, for He is light and upholds all things by His Word. There can never be a change to what He says, or else He would no longer be eternal. That is a sure foundation upon which we can build our lives.
