Greetings with the love of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ from our Ismail, Ukraine church of Evangelical Baptist Christians and personally from me, who recently obtained a copy of Predvestnik newspaper. It is a great mercy of God that in our dark, atheistic country there has sprung up, though as of yet rare, Christian newspapers and magazines. Truly it is a miracle of miracles, it is fresh air in a stuffy dungeon. I would like to be your distributor and know more information about distribution. If I cannot handle it myself, I will probably cooperate with a brother or a sister, so that I may make a small contribution in saving souls from destruction in hell.
Ismail, Ukraine [a city bordering Moldava]
Today, I received a copy of Predvestnik dated from 1992. After I read a letter from a brother in Christ who is a missionary to the Tatars, I was compelled by the Holy Spirit to write this letter. I am Bashkir and was saved in October 1992. Ever since then I have been praying for the Tatar translation of the Bible. I wonder if you could send me the address of this brother, for if the Lord chose me from among this nation to know God’s truth, then I cannot rest but should preach Jesus Christ. And to do it, I need a Tatar language Bible. May God the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ be blessed, who gave life to such a newspaper, so that we children of God could receive blessings, too. I’ll be praying for you. The Lord bless you and meet all your needs.
Novy Urengoi, Russia [A city near the Arctic]
I pray that all your needs will be met, because the publishing of this newspaper is motivated by Christ’s command – to spread the Word of our Lord and Savior. I am convinced that you will not have problems with distribution, especially among Christians in churches. Many times I witnessed people’s willingness to have and read Predvestnik. The issues printed in 1991 through 1993 are passed from hand to hand as a rarity, for there aren’t actually newspapers like this. I am willing to take an active part in distribution of the newspaper among believers.
I am a Christian Kirghiz. Our True Life church greets you. The article on Jehovah’s Witnesses and Moonies (No.3, 1993) was very interesting and timely. Last year, Moonies came to the region near Issyk-Kul lake, they preached to the students and professors of our university. Jehovah’s Witnesses have been here for about three years. But thanks to the Lord, our church is growing. There are now about 700 children of God in Bishkek, since we started with 120 members. Many people came to us out of the Jehovah’s Witnesses. More than half of our congregation are Kirghiz [a traditionally Muslim nationality] – brothers and sisters from 17 to 35 years old. Our pastors came from Sweden and Austria. Soon we’ll have a Bible school open in our city. God willing, I’ll write you about this.

“When the lives of the unborn are snuffed out, they often feel pain, pain that is long and agonizing.” – President Ronald Reagan to National Religious Broadcasters Convention, January 1981
Ronald Reagan became convinced of this as a result of watching The Silent Scream – a movie he considered so powerful and convicting that he screened it at the White House.
The modern technology of real-time ultrasound now reveals the actual responses of a 12-week old fetus to being aborted. As the unborn child attempts to escape the abortionist’s suction curette, her motions can be seen to become desperately agitated and her heart rate doubles. Her mouth opens – as if to scream – but no sound can come out. Her scream doesn’t have to remain silent, however … not if you will become her voice. This newly re-mastered version features eight language tracks and two bonus videos.
“… a high technology “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” arousing public opinion just as Harriet Beecher Stowe’s 1852 antislavery novel ignited the abolitionist movement.” – Sen. Gordon Humphrey, Time Magazine

Is there a connection between pagan religion and the abortion industry?
This powerful presentation traces the biblical roots of child sacrifice and then delves into the social, political and cultural fall-out that this sin against God and crime against humanity has produced in our beleaguered society.
Conceived as a sequel and update to the 1988 classic, The Massacre of Innocence, the new title, The Abortion Matrix, is entirely fitting. It not only references abortion’s specific target – the sacred matrix where human beings are formed in the womb in the very image of God, but it also implies the existence of a conspiracy, a matrix of seemingly disparate forces that are driving this holocaust.
The occult activity surrounding the abortion industry is exposed with numerous examples. But are these just aberrations, bizarre yet anomalous examples of abortionists who just happen to have ties to modern day witchcraft? Or is this representative of something deeper, more sinister and even endemic to the entire abortion movement?
As the allusion to the film of over a decade ago suggests, the viewer may learn that things are not always as they appear to be. The Abortion Matrix reveals the reality of child-killing and strikes the proper moral chord to move hearts to fulfill the biblical responsibility to rescue those unjustly sentenced to death and to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves (Proverbs 24:11,12; 31:8,9).
Speakers include: George Grant, Peter Hammond, RC Sproul Jr., Paul Jehle, Lou Engle, Rusty Thomas, Flip Benham, Janet Porter and many more.
