  • Trafficking: The Reality

    Forrest Hershberger, Publisher, Sun-Telegraph|Sep 8, 2022

    It's a theme used over and over on the big screen. Fun-loving young adults visit a foreign country and their week in Rome becomes a walk through a nightmare with a one-man army to the rescue. There's also the desperate immigrant who was led to a unofficial border crossing and obligated into forced labor, or worse, in exchange for payment of getting them across the border.

    Ivy Joy Johnson, The Joy Mission|Sep 8, 2022

    Ah! September!!  It is just like Father to start a new year with a bountiful harvest and a time of rest and rejoicing.  As a youngster, I loved September.

  • No Skinny Rabbits

    Mike Motz, Thoughts from a Grey-Haired Point of View|Sep 8, 2022

    The ability to tell stories is among the traits I inherited from my dad, Calvin Kenneth Sunderland. Among his many skills was the ability to communicate with both the written and spoken word. I asked him how and where he learned to communicate so well. He laughed and said, “It’s a family trait. My dad, his dad and as far back as we can trace were all story tellers. At family gatherings they would try to out do each other. Don’t worry son, as you grow and mature you’ll be just like the re...

  • The Challenge of Travel and Witnessed Events

    Forrest Hershberger, View from the Handlebars|Sep 8, 2022

    My wife and I did something recently that we’ve never done before. It was my niece’s wedding. I haven’t seen her for about 16 years, since losing my daughter. We connected over time with similar interests in other places and people. Mission experiences have a way of changing a person. And she did, as did I. In the nearly 29 years we’ve been married, we’ve traveled here and there, mostly regional locations — day trips stretched into a few days at a time — but we’ve never flown...

  • When Should You Adjust Your Investment Mix?

    Sep 8, 2022

    There are no shortcuts to investment success — you need to establish a long-term strategy and stick with it. This means you’ll want to create an investment mix based on your goals, risk tolerance and time horizon — and then regularly review it to ensure it’s still meeting your needs. In fact, investing for the long term doesn’t necessarily mean you should lock your investments in forever. Throughout your life, you’ll likely need to make some changes. Of course, everyone’s situation is different and there’s no prescribed formula...

  • What Are You Seeking?

    Sep 8, 2022

    What do we seek in Life? Some seek wealth, some good health some are looking for Peace. The Word seek has several definitions, To search out, to look for, to go searching for, or to seek to find. The best way I have found is to Seek after GOD. Why? First GOD wants to be found, in Matt 7:7 the Word of GOD states seek and you will find. So how do I seek after GOD, in Deuteronomy 4: 29 GOD’S word speaks about seeking GOD with your Whole heart and soul, and again in Jeremiah 29:13, seeking GOD with you whole heart.

    Two weeks ago, I addressed the reset at the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) due to their failure to adequately guide the American public through the COVID-19 outbreak, and last week I addressed how the military has failed to adjust their policies to the facts about the COVID-19 vaccinations and natural immunity.
