Thousands of Christian missionaries from the United States are working with ONGOs in China to provide the local Chinese with food, shelter, healthcare, education, etc., while also... read more

UPDATE : Turkish prosecutor now states he has not turned in an indictment regarding Pastor Andrew Brunson. In an incredible turn of events this morning, Pastor Andrew’s Turkish attorney was able to meet face to face with the Turkish prosecutor, who is now denying the news reports that an indictment has been turned in regarding Pastor Andrew. Apparently, a draft has been prepared, but it has not yet been turned in to the court. Since the case remains sealed, we will have to wait for the coming... read more

These are dangerous times, and the threat of war is greater now than at any time since the end of the Cold War, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats told the Senate Armed Services Committee Tuesday. Director Coats and Army Lieutenant General Robert Ashley, Jr., the director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, gave the committee their assessments of the threats facing America. Indeed, it is true.

Good fences may make good neighbors, but in countries like Pakistan where religious tensions are high, even a simple dispute can become an excuse for violence. Our international affiliate, the European Centre for Law and Justice’s (ECLJ) office in Pakistan, the Organization for Legal Aid (OLA), reported that on March 4, 2018, during a Sunday morning service, a group of about eleven Muslim men wielding clubs attacked a group of about four Christians who were building a boundary wall around their... read more

The long-simmering battle between the federal government and the state of California’s lawless agenda has erupted as part of escalating conflict last week after the Justice Department filed a lawsuit seeking to strike down the state’s attempt to usurp federal authority and write its own immigration laws. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, in a dramatic move, told a gathering of law enforcement officers on Wednesday that “California … is using every power it has—powers it doesn’t have—to frustrate... read more

American Pastor Andrew Brunson has been unjustly imprisoned in Turkey for nearly a year and a half, despite having committed no crime and having peacefully lived out his religious beliefs in service to the people of Turkey for over two decades. During his imprisonment, we have been zealously advocating for Pastor Andrew’s release. Last month, we submitted a written statement to the U.N. Human Rights Council, requesting their assistance in securing Pastor Andrew’s release. Today we brought his... read more

Every year, the United States government gives money to charities that do work around the world giving aid to those who need it most. Unfortunately, however, one of the pitfalls of this kind of generosity is that sometimes the money can end up in unexpected places, and if it falls into the wrong hands can be used for causes that otherwise go against our nation’s interests. Investigations from other groups and sources have exposed a very troubling set of circumstances: over the last several... read more
