Our family saw another movie today, "Noble" , the story of Christina Noble, her struggle in life and later when establishing The Christina Noble Children's Foundation in Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam. This is the second movie this year that focused on Orphans. The first was "Dropbox" featuring the work of Pastor Lee Jong-rak in Seoul, korea, who installed a "Drop-Box' outside his home to serve as "Safe-Haven" for unwanted infants. That movie presented by Jim Daly and his Focus on The Family was very touching as viewers couldn't help but to be moved by the "Love and Sense of Service" exhibited by Pastor Lee.
"Noble" was alittle different opening up in Ireland. Her family experienced the challenge of a drunkard father and mother that passed away while all the kids were still young. Her father couldn't take care of them and eventually the authorities took the kids and placed them in alternative living situations. Eventually Christina ended up with the Nuns in a Catholic home for Orphans, was pregnant at the age of 17 and watched as her infant child was taken away against her will for adoption.
The movie switched back-and-Forth from her younger days in Ireland and later in Vietnam as she worked to establish her facility in Ho Chi Minh City. Exhibiting the same love for children and tireless dedication as Pastor Lee, Christina's earlier life featured something different. In the midst of life's struggles, she continued to have glimpses of her future life in Vietnam through her dreams !! The movie closes featuring her Children's Foundation fully in operation with plenty of children. Nice movie with good acting and production quality. Sadly, it hasn't found it's way into many theaters. We travelled about an hour to view it in Danvers, MA. The movie trailer is embedded below for your review:
As an additional note....I was adopted at the age of 11 months and my sister at only 7. There is a great need to bring these children into our homes but what bothers me most is the high cost associated when attempting to do so. I realize there are legitimate expenses but the idea of "Purchasing Human Beings " is repugnant to me and I feel the process needs to be as "Free-As-Possible" even though tax dollars may be involved. I'm very much opposed to "The Welfare State" since it's primarily used to advance government power, but these children are helpless and need our help..

The American Family Association in Conjunction With EchoLight Studios
has produced 2 new Documentaries:
"One Generation Away" and "A Time To Speak"
Both feature the "Loss of Religious Liberty here in America" and need to be viewed. Please distribute this E-Mail widely and follow the directions at the American Family Association for viewing. My understanding is because of the importance of the subject material Pastors may be able to view it free of charge . The rest of us should also make arrangements to view the films.
Please read the message from Tim....
**** I've got a very important message for Pastors! Will you help****

I’m sure I don’t have to tell you that religious freedom is under attack in America. You've heard or seen news stories about Christian business owners being forced to violate their beliefs, judges requiring churches to rent their buildings to ungodly organizations and children being bullied to abandon their faith at the schoolhouse doors.
Our Founding Fathers built into the fabric of America a freedom of religious expression. Today, these freedoms are being threatened on every side.
Your pastor's leadership is crucial to preserving the precious gift of religious liberty for the next generation. America needs pastors who are bold and who will proclaim truth, not just from the pulpit, but in the hedges and byways as well.
Help bring this powerful documentary to yo
American Family Studios has produced two powerful new documentaries illustrating the growing threats to religious liberty in the U. S., highlighting case studies and trends that may change America forever. In these films, we think your pastor will find that now is a time to speak out, to lead congregations in helping restore America’s Godly heritage in our generation...and in the next.
One Generation Away is 90 minutes and contains dissenting voices which represent the ideological shift in America that church members face every day.
A Time to Speak is 60 minutes and is equally informative and provocative with an additional focus on a pastor’s role to encourage voting and civil responsibilities straight from the pulpit.
If you are a pastor, Click Here and watch both movies with no obligation other than to heed God’s leading for how you should respond.
Share this message with your pastor by forwarding this email.

Now Is The Time To Speak !!!
"To every thing there is a season...A time to keep silence, and a time to speak."
Both the American Family Association and Echolight Studios have produced some excellent movies and documentaries in the past. One that I'd like to point out is an excellent short documentary about what happens to a society when GOD is removed. I suggest you obtain a copy and take the time to watch it. Click Here to purchase the DVD: "Divorcing GOD"
and you can watch the trailer below on the website:
"My People Are Destroyed For Lack Of Knowledge"
An excellent video about how a society's people lose their humanity under a tyrannical government. Arch Bishop Abouna Gregori explains how a nation's people are "Deceived By Promises and Visions of a New Garden of Eden" and soon realize that is was really intended only for a select few. Citizens soon lose hope and gradually become enemies of the state as leaders of this new regime know that the "Newly Awakened Citizenry Becomes a Threat" to their power. People are soon "Controlled by Fear and the Iron Fist" and Religion and Morality, which is the Foundation of Freedom, soon loses it's importance!
As love and compassion turn cold, the "People Lose Their Sense of Humanity" and it becomes possible to drive over a small child without giving it a second thought as it can be seen at the end of this video about a tragic event involving a young girl in China. Is this the future of America?
"Government Power is Expanding, Centralizing and Christian Morality seems to be disapppearing in our American Society!!"
"American citizens aren't being Persecuted today But it could happen tomorrow if Our Founding Documents are not Enforced !!!"
****Pray for our nation, defend and support our National and State Constitutions that needed to Secure Our God-Given Rights, and most important: Humble Ourselves Before "The LORD" before it's too late !****
“If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14

September 1, 2014, centers on the loss of religious liberty. Is being marketed primarily to churches by Echolight Studios and The American Family Assoc.
“GOD who gave us life gave us liberty. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these “Liberties are of the “Gift of GOD”? That they are not to be violated but with his wrath? “Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that GOD is just; that his justice cannot sleep forever.”

"Now the LORD said to Abram, "Go from your country and your kindred and your father's house to the land that I will show you. And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and him who dishonors you I will curse, and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed."
More problems today in the Middle East this centered around Israel and the Palestinians. Seems never-ending.....but what really are facts surrounding this conflict? Both sides are pointing fingers at the other and it seems Truth is being left out of the picture. Let's view some videos and take a look at the "Allies on each side of the conflict". Perhaps this will tell us where the truth lies:

"I will take you from the nations and gather you from all the countries and bring you into your own land. I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you shall be clean from all your uncleannesses, and from all your idols I will cleanse you. And I will give you a new heart, and a new spirit I will put within you. And I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes and be careful to obey my rules.You shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers, and you shall be my people, and I will be your God. And I will deliver you from all your uncleannesses. And I will summon the grain and make it abundant and lay no famine upon you. I will make the fruit of the tree and the increase of the field abundant, that you may never again suffer the disgrace of famine among the nations." Ezekiel 36:24-30
“Therefore my people have gone into captivity, Because they have no knowledge.”
Another fine documentary from Dinesh D'Souza...producer of the previous movie "2016". I saw this movie a few weeks back and was expecting a fictional account of what the world would be like if America never existed. However, this isn't quite what I saw. "This is an American Appreciation Movie" ...one which defends our nation against the criticisms of the "Anti-American-Left". It gets into questions about America's mistreatment of Native and Black Americans. Also discusses whether our nation invaded and now illegally occupy parts of Mexico which constitutes much of the American Southwest. And lastly "Defends Our Economic System of Capitalism", which opposed to oppressive government systems that dominate nations even today, was the fuel that elevated our nation into dominance over the last century or two.
We first attempted to see this movie one Sunday around noon and was happily surprised it was sold out. Reading some of the reviews it is being met with standing ovations and crowds thanking Dinesh for producing a movie that represent the truth about America's History. I strongly recommend that all Americans see this movie !! Click on the image above and visit the website. Find out where the movie is being shown in your area
