WASHINGTON, DC, MAY 19, 2017 | TruthPR | -- In the Middle East, the birthplace of Christianity, Christians and other minorities are being violently persecuted, driven out of their homes, and killed. Their places of worship are being destroyed, and their history is being erased. Entitled FAITHKEEPERS, this powerful new documentary tells the uplifting true stories of those who suffered and refused to renounce their faith. Premiering May 23, FAITHKEEPERS is the latest film by The Clarion Project and Lightworks Media that uncovers the horrific reality faced by so many simply for being who they are. The documentary gives face and voice to the humanitarian crisis and genocide affecting millions in the Middle East as a result of religious and ethnic persecution. In Iraq and Syria, ravaged by war, Christians, Yazidis and other minority groups are suffering grievously under the yoke of terrorist groups like the Islamic State. Christian communities that fall under their control are given a simple choice: convert to Islam, pay the jizya, a humiliating protection tax, or die. A testament to the inspiring stories of persecuted Christians, the films producers include Emmy nominated actress and producer Roma Downey, U.S.-trained lawyer Paula Kweskin, and Raphael Shore, founder and CEO of the Clarion Project. Award winning narrative and documentary filmmaker Micah Smith is director of the documentary. “We would like to awaken the Christian community and all people of conscience to understand and be empowered to take action on behalf of Christians and other minorities in the Middle East who are experiencing genocide,” said Kweskin. “We feel there is a real lack of information and this is first and foremost a film to educate people and wake them up about this humanitarian crisis.” Join thousands across America to experience the inspiring stories of courageous Christians sacrificing for their faith in the Middle East. This important movie experience is available to your church for free. While there is no cost to the church to host the event, costs are covered by ticket sales. Tickets are $8 per person, which includes a $1 ticketing surcharge. For more information go to www.faithkeepers.clarionproject.org.

Paula Kweskin: We would like to awaken the Christian community and all people of conscience to understand and be empowered to take action on behalf of Christians and other minorities in the Middle East who are experiencing genocide. We feel there is a real lack of information and this is first and foremost a film to educate people and wake them up about this humanitarian crisis. What efforts is the U.S. government doing to protect Christians in the Middle East and is it enough? Congress has taken a number of steps to protect Christians and other minorities in the Middle East. House Concurrent Resolution 75, which passed the House of Representatives in March 2016, correctly states, “the atrocities perpetrated by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) against Christians, Yezidis, and other religious and ethnic minorities in Iraq and Syria constitute war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocide.” The bill is currently awaiting passage through the Senate but if passed it will push the U.N. and other international bodies, working with U.S. leadership, to establish war crimes tribunals for ISIS leaders and take other more robust steps to tackle ISIS. There are other proposed bills, including one which would expedite the asylum process for Christians and other minorities fleeing ISIS persecution. In addition, President Trump has increased the number of soldiers deployed to Iraq and Syria to fight ISIS and earlier this year he gave Defense Secretary Mattis the authority to set troop levels in Iraq and Syria. This means the U.S. military has the freedom to commit the forces it needs to eliminate ISIS, working with local partners on the ground. What action can people take? We have a three-pronged call to action: Awareness, advocacy, and aid. Visit our website for more information on how exactly to help. Awareness: Spread the word by posting the trailer on your Facebook page or sending it to family and friends – each one of has the capacity to do that and awareness leads to action. Advocacy: Speak to elected officials and make sure they are engaged on the issue and are supporting steps to end the genocide and help these communities. Aid: We are collecting funds to distribute to selected charities and organizations in the region doing critical work on the ground. What needs to be done to help Christians and other minorities who are now returning to villages and towns that were devastated by ISIS? First and foremost there has to be strong security in place. But we can’t just protect them, we also have to help them rebuild. Right now they’re going back to destroyed churches and homes and are in a terrible situation. We need to give them the support to restore their devastated communities, whether that is politically, economically or in other ways. But I don’t think it will be possible for them to return unless there is a strong effort from the international community to assist them, not just in the short term but in the long term. What do you say to people who say the United States has already wasted too much blood and treasure in the Middle East and that it’s not our problem to fix? This is a humanitarian mission that goes beyond any one country. I see a genocide happening and I feel compelled to act. Minorities in the Middle East are a stabilizing and moderating force in the region. A strong, peaceful and diverse Middle East is definitely in America’s interests.

CHRISTIAN LEADERS URGE TRUMP: RECOGNIZE JERUSALEM AND MOVE US EMBASSY MURFREESBORO, TN, May 16, 2017 | TruthPR | – Some 60 Christian leaders signed a letter delivered to President Trump today calling on the American administration to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and to locate the US Embassy there. The letter opened, “the time has come, at long last, to uphold American law by moving the U.S. Embassy to Israel’s eternal indivisible capital city of Jerusalem.” Referencing the Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995, the letter noted that Congress had recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and called for the U.S. Embassy to be moved there by May 31, 1999. Due to presidential waivers every six months delaying the implementation of that law, Israel is the only country where the U.S. does not place its embassy in the functioning capital of the country. This “doublespeak” should end, according to these leaders. The letter was organized by the American Christian Leaders for Israel (ACLI) an informal network of Christian leaders, managed by the US Branch of the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem, representing some 60 million Christians across America. The ACLI letter was signed by Evangelical leaders representing diverse groups and denominations; among them Dr. Jerry Johnson, President and CEO, National Religious Broadcasters; Dr. John Hagee, Founder and Chairman, Christians United for Israel; Star Parker, President, Center for Urban Renewal and Education; Penny Nance, CEO, Concerned Women for America; Gordon Robertson, CEO, The Christian Broadcasting Network; Dr. James Dobson, President, Family Talk Radio; Gary Bauer, Washington Director, Christians United for Israel Action Fund; and Janet Parshall, nationally syndicated talk show host. Susan Michael, ICEJ USA Director, stated her concern the president was being counseled to delay implementation of the 1995 Jerusalem Embassy Act and to make it part of a peace agreement between the Palestinians and the Israelis.“Considering the 24 years of attempted peace agreements by three previous presidents, it is not a good idea to continue waiting. Now is the time to honor our friend and fully recognize Jerusalem as the eternal, undivided capital of Israel.” The leaders concluded their letter by asking the president to send a message early in his administration that the United States will honor its strongest and only true democratic ally in the Middle East by respecting their capital city—Jerusalem—and immediately moving the US Embassy there. ___________________________________________________________ About American Christian Leaders for Israel (ACLI) On behalf of the tens of millions of American Christians that we collectively represent, we the members of ACLI seek to provide a unified voice of truth to the American public in support of Israel and the Jewish people.

Trump The White House 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW Washington, DC 20500 Dear Mr. President: Thank you for your leadership of our nation, especially the way you are working to keep your campaign promises. We write to respectfully request your swift action to fulfill a special promise you made, and also one the United States made more than twenty years ago to one of our most important allies. As Christian leaders who collectively speak to over 60 million Americans, we believe the time has come, at long last, to uphold American law by moving the U.S. Embassy to Israel’s eternal and indivisible capital city of Jerusalem. The Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995 (Public Law 104–45) declared, “The city of Jerusalem is the seat of Israel’s President, Parliament, and Supreme Court, and the site of numerous government ministries and social and cultural institutions.” It also noted, “The United States maintains its embassy in the functioning capital of every country except in the case of our democratic friend and strategic ally, the State of Israel.” Upon its enactment in October 1995, this legislation established in statute that Jerusalem is indeed the capital of Israel and that the U.S. Embassy should be moved there by May 31, 1999. Sadly, every U.S. President since then has taken advantage of a provision in the law allowing its requirements to be waived for six months if “necessary to protect the national security interests of the United States.” Such suspensions have been repeated semi-annually for two decades, and it is time to end America’s doublespeak. The Republican National Convention’s official 2016 Platform rightly stated, “We recognize Jerusalem as the eternal and indivisible capital of the Jewish state and call for the American embassy to be moved there in fulfillment of U.S. law.” Moreover, we were honored and grateful that you pledged to specifically uphold this policy in response to a request from the American Christian Leaders for Israel (ACLI) coalition during your campaign. Many of our constituents cast their vote for you due to this commitment. Now we ask you to send a message early in your administration that the United States will indeed honor its strongest and only true democratic ally in the Middle East by respecting its capital city—Jerusalem—and immediately moving the US Embassy there. Implementation of the 1995 Jerusalem Embassy Act should not be delayed nor made contingent on any future peace agreements. Thank you for your consideration and your leadership as President of the United States.

EVANGELIST ALVEDA KING: POTUS IS REDIRECTING [NOT CUTTING] FUNDS TO SAVE LIVES! ATLANTA, GA, May 16, 2017 | TruthPR | -- Finally our tax dollars are being redirected from death care to health care. President Trump's "Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance" policy is simply amazing. Friends, he's not robbing the poor, he's saving lives. Remember, abortion is not health care. Abortions kill babies and sometimes mothers. Abortion is a violent and deceptive act. I know. I survived two abortions and a miscarriage. My babies didn't. #HowCanTheDreamSurviveAbortion With his New Mexico City Policy, our new POTUS Administration is now multiplying the life saving impact well beyond the Department of State. What's new? Well along with the $600 million in taxpayer funding saved under the authority of the New Mexico City pro-life rule, $8.8 billion from the Departments of State, Health and Human Services, and Defense are being redirected for life. That's almost 15 times more money flowing through the abortion ban than previous policies; yes cutting deaths by abortion while saving lives. In a nutshell, here's what POTUS is doing: "I direct the Secretary of State, in coordination with the Secretary of Health and Human Services, to the extent allowable by law, to implement a plan to extend the requirements of the reinstated Memorandum to global health assistance furnished by all departments or agencies..." President Trump directed. "I further direct the Secretary of State to take all necessary actions, to the extent permitted by law, to ensure that U.S. taxpayer dollars do not fund organizations or programs that support or participate in the management of a program of coercive abortion or involuntary sterilization." As one White House official told The Brody File, "The pro-life policy will apply to global health assistance funding for international health programs, such as those for HIV/AIDS, maternal and child health, malaria, global health security, and family planning and reproductive health." Many people already know and understand that the inclusion of the DOD is probably the single greatest change, since the order affects all global health assistance funding -- not just "family planning" dollars. Super life saving, money redirecting impact. More funds are now available for improving our quality of life. America Return to God! Now, along with thousands and maybe millions of unborn lives; not to mention healing women and mothers, this policy will help heal America. Keep praying friends. President Donald Trump is listening to 83 percent of Americans who asked him to end taxpayer funding of overseas abortion groups. I'm in that number. Are you? Pray about it! “If you succumb to the temptation of using violence in the struggle, unborn generations will be the recipients of a long and desolate night of bitterness, and your chief legacy to the future will be an endless reign of meaningless chaos.” – Martin Luther King, Jr. ### To Schedule an Interview, contact Jackie@TruthPR.com or 662-259-0988.

From the historic White House Rose Garden, President Trump said: "Freedom is a gift from God" in observance of the 2017 National Day of Prayer; he was joined by Leaders of Faith to sign Executive Order Protecting Religious Liberty. “When President Trump released the historic pen used to sign the historic Freedom of Religion Act in honor of Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. yesterday, there was a united prayer for revival released around the world simultaneously. Please pray with us as you read some "takeaways" from your eyewitness on the ground.” –Evangelist Alveda King 1. Two prophetic women were given the pens which POTUS used to restore religious liberty and speech to America: Acts 2:17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams. 2. POTUS will visit 3 seats of religious authority on his first international journey; Saudi Arabia, Israel and The Vatican. John 3:16 says, “God so loved the world”; this journey will seek out the connections among Ishmael and Isaac; both sons of Abraham while seats of the ancient roots of religion are being tapped. Ephesians 4:5-6: For THE LORD JEHOVAH is One, and the faith is one, and the baptism is one; and One is God The Father of all, and over all, and with all and in us all. 3. POTUS said: "Freedom is a gift from God." The pen granted to honor MLK is a key urging us to live together as brothers and sisters rather than perishing as fools. MLK was a Christian preacher. Acts 17:26 says we are one blood, one [human] race. 4. On the same day that POTUS signed these executive orders, the US House of Representatives dealt a blow to death care in America with passage of the American Health Care Act. Perhaps the song says it best: "To God be the Glory." Pray for America. ### To Schedule and Interview with Alveda King, Contact Jackie@TruthPR.com or 662-259-0988.

Where is the Respect for Churches? No Alcohol Sales Before Noon on Sundays! RALEIGH, N.C., May 9, 2017 | TruthPR | – The Christian Action League of North Carolina is calling on pastors and other church leaders across the state to speak out against the so-called “Brunch Bill,”an alcohol measure that would allow cities and towns to roll back the time for restaurants to start selling alcoholic beverages from noon to 10 a.m. on Sundays. The Rev. Mark Creech, CAL executive director, said the measure would worsen underage drinking, undermine the ABC system and diminish the influence of churches on the culture. “Historically, North Carolina has delayed selling alcoholic beverages until after the noon hour on Sundays in deference and respect to churches. This bill demonstrates a tacit disrespect. Where is this respect now?”he asks in a letter to legislative leaders. He further points out that the bill works against the ministry efforts of churches, so often the very institutions that serve people struggling with alcohol abuse. The CAL is urging pastors to sign the letter (http://christianactionleague.org/where-is-the-respect-for-churches/) to Senate President Pro-Tempore Phil Berger, House Speaker Tim Moore and all members of the General Assembly. “It’s time for church leaders to speak out before it’s too late,”Creech said. ### To Schedule an Interview with Rev.

Alveda King with Pres. TrumpMany people who voted for President Trump agree that he is delivering on his promises. When I voted for President Trump, I lifted up a prayer asking God to guide our President and to heal our nation. I have not regretted my vote or our prayers for his success throughout his 100 days. Throughout his First 100 Days President Trump has taken dramatic steps to undo burdensome regulations, restore law and order, bolster our military, revive the American dream, change Washington by holding it accountable, put the American worker first and confirm Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch. According to a new ABC News/Washington Post poll, an incredible 96% of us who supported the President in November say we would do it again today. Added to his proactive agenda, President Trump has enacted more legislation and signed more executive orders in the First 100 days than any president in half a century. Our POTUS has removed more job-killing regulations through legislation than any president in U.S. history. Consequently he has boosted job creation and economic optimism has been renewed, with consumer confidence reaching its highest level in 16 years. As a Christian African American woman who is 50+ years of age who is also a concerned mother and grandmother, I am grateful to say that President Trump has allayed many of my concerns, and those of my constituency. Just to name a few of the POTUS improvements: Helping Women/Minorities by Minimizing Affordable Care Act The Historically Black Colleges and Universities Initiative Appointment of Dr. Ben Carson as HUD Secretary Canada-United States Council for the Advancement of Women Entrepreneurs Promoting Women in Entrepreneurship Act Promoting Programs to Engage Women in STEM Fields Challenge to Planned Parenthood to Stop Abortions and help heal Americans not kill them Once again there is hope for the people of America as our POTUS continues "thinking big about exploration and discovery again; protecting the farmers and ranchers that feed our country, and reasserting American power on the world stage." Members of the POTUS Cabinet will continue to reach out beyond the beltway, responding to the concerns of the people and spreading President Trump's message across the country. There is promise of a 100 Days webpage where the White House will be producing graphics, videos, and other digital content for the President's online constituents to share. ### To Schedule Dr. Alveda King, contact Jackie@TruthPR.com or 662-259-0088 “The first thing I want you to do is pray. Pray every way you know how, for everyone you know. Pray especially for rulers and their governments to rule well so we can be quietly about our business of living simply, in humble contemplation. This is the way our Savior God wants us to live.” 1 Timothy 2:1-3 MSG The prayer network will continue. God bless America.

Sunday is Resurrection Day, aka Easter. As we celebrate the blessings of our Lord, Jesus Christ, His sacrifice on Calvary's Cross, dissension into Hell where he victoriously conquered Satan and ascension into Heaven as our High Priest, let's rejoice and be glad! Around the world Easter is still linked to pagan fertility customs, including the Easter Bunny, Easter egg hunts, and a time for family gatherings. Yet there's so much more. Since the Fall of Adam and Eve and consequent sin sickness, we've needed rescue. Jesus (God's Son, the "new Adam") was born to die on the cross and then rise three days later after conquering death. His death and life assured all humanity of eternal life. None of this would have been possible if not for Mary the Virgin's "yes" to GOD and "yes" in the miraculous conception and birth of Christ. If she had said no then there would be no salvation, no eternal life, no Easter. Thank God we don’t have to imagine that! This Easter we need to pray for America. We need to pray that parents all over the world will love their children, born and unborn, and trust in God’s good graces for abundant life. Join Emmanuel Boose and me on "Changing Your Community" broadcast on Urban Family Talk Radio for this week’s Easter broadcast HERE "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life".

Audio Download for Radio Non-profit Hopeful Hearts Ministry is a Voice for Survivors Houston, TX, April 11, 2017 | TruthPR.com |- April is National Sexual Assault Awareness month, as well as National Child Abuse Prevention month. The nightly news points to the prevalence of both child abuse and sexual assault worldwide. Sexual violence, including child sexual abuse, spans across all ages, genders, races, ethnicities, and economic backgrounds. According to a Child Maltreatment report from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Children’s Bureau, 60,956 cases of child sexual abuse were reported in the United States in 2013. On top of the guilt and shame that abuse can bring, most victims know their attackers, which can lead them to be silent about their traumatic experience. Staying silent, however, does not lead to healing, according to Shannon Deitz, abuse survivor and founder of Hopeful Hearts Ministry. Recently speaking at Baylor University Chapel Deitz specifically addressed sexual assault and date rape. Shannon comments “In helping survivors recognize the abuse they have suffered and being able to speak about it allows a deeper level of healing.” Through Hopeful Hearts, survivors receive compassionate support from a trusted peer and are able to realize that the abuse they have endured does not define them as a person. As a result, they are able to rise above victimization, embrace their full potential, and thrive. “Both sexual assault and child abuse are so devastating that most of us don’t even want to think about them being present in our society. This makes it extremely difficult for any victim of assault or abuse to feel comfortable enough to speak out, which is exactly what they need to be able to do. Be it a child, a teenager or an adult, anyone who has been abused needs to be able to speak about what has been done to them without question or judgment.,” comments Dietz. With this in mind, Hopeful Hearts Ministry started the “I Have a Voice” abuse awareness project where survivors share their personal stories of abuse (domestic, sexual, incest, rape, neglect, emotional and verbal) through intensely personal and honest YouTube videos. The nine videos have been viewed more than 5,000 times and show the power of giving a VOICE to survivors that was once kept hidden, and not only aides in their personal healing, but shows others they are not alone and there is reason for hope. Five years later, Hopeful Hearts Ministry has outgrown its facility and the number of survivors from all of over the world receiving peer support, Christian counseling, and attending the programs it offers has grown exponentially. The organization receives at least two to three calls a week from new survivors seeking healing support. “It’s a catch 22 with the growth of our organization,” said Deitz. “On the one hand, I would rather be out of this business because there are no more survivors to help. But until then, I will continue to do what it takes to offer the programs and services needed to help survivors thrive in this life.” Hopeful Hearts has served over 350 abuse survivors on four continents with individual and group peer support sessions. 90% of these individuals are female; and 75% have survived sexual abuse. Deitz has participated in over 60 public advocacy opportunities for abuse survivors. With firsthand experience, Deitz understands the pain and stigma of being a survivor of sexual abuse both as a child and as an adult. She sees the month of April as an opportunity to encourage other survivors to speak up and speak out, knowing that it is a crucial step towards healing. “The shame, despair and inability to cope with the painful events can lead to depression as well as dangerous behavior, as survivors tend to seek other ways to block out the memories and dull the pain.” comments Deitz. “My goal is to help others see their worth and become the best they can be.” Through the power of her own testimony, she helps people see that they no longer have to live as a victim. They can begin a journey of healing because they are not defined by their past and they have immense value. In her newest release, Redeemed (Hopeful Hearts Ministry October 2016), Deitz shares the struggles she has faced, including how she worked to overcome sexual intimacy issues, and abusive behaviors that carried over into parenting. Redeemed reveals the self-destructive behavior Shannon was led into because of the shame of rape and guilt of self-imposed inexcusable sin during her formative years. Deitz, in a gripping and riveting read, unfolds this truth through the continuation of her journey in accepting love, intimacy, worthiness, and forgiveness. Redeemed portrays Shannon’s ever strengthening love story with God as she struggles to accept the good gifts He has waiting for her, and the courage it takes to trust God and others, when her spirit has been so deeply wounded by sins of her past. “Survivors want to know they are being heard and that they will be safe and protected,” explains Deitz. “We do not need to be silenced because our situation makes others feel uncomfortable. To the contrary, we need people around us who are willing to listen and willing to stand up for us if we choose to go public.” This focus in April is important because the more people who become aware of just how prevalent this problem is in our country, the more beneficial it will be for everyone. Being able to share our story with others serves to help prevent future abuse from taking place. If there is a survivor in your midst, be willing to listen. Be willing to hear their story.” www.HopefulHeartsMinistry.com To Schedule an interview with Shannon Dietz, contact Jackie@TruthPR.com or 662-259-0988

American Culture & Faith InstituteRelease: April 5, 2017George Barna With the U.S. Senate approaching a showdown over the confirmation of prospective U.S. Supreme Court Judge Neil Gorsuch, Americans are only mildly interested in those proceedings and the political drama surrounding the decision. A new national survey by the American Culture & Faith Institute (ACFI) indicates that while peoples' views of the nominee are influenced by their faith leanings and political ideology, a shockingly high number of adults are simply not interested in the outcome. Among adults who oppose confirming Gorsuch, the survey revealed that the reasons for that opposition typically have more to do with politics than judicial philosophy.

Statement from Bishop E.W. Jackson regarding North Carolina and gender identity: "It is unfortunate that so many institutions assume that legitimate public safety concerns of fellow citizens are a cover for anti-gay bigotry. They should be ashamed of themselves for disregarding the need to protect children as well as vulnerable adults. The citizens of North Carolina have been bullied and victimized by large corporations doing the bidding of the far left and radical activists of the LGBT community. Gender identity claims are not an unfettered right to impose the implications of gender non-specificity upon an entire population of people who are neither hurting nor discriminating against anyone."

Statement from Christian Action League: April 4, 2017 | TruthPR.com | -- The North Carolina Tar Heels have won the NCAA championship. The NCAA now announces it will consider the state of North Carolina again for championship events because of the repeal of HB 2. We should all be happy, right? Wrong! The NCAA displayed breathtaking hypocrisy concerning the bathroom bill, selectively boycotting the state for policies quite common throughout the nation and where they were holding events. With their assistance, everything now is politicized, even intercollegiate athletics. They’ve arguably violated their non-profit status, and figuratively speaking, held North Carolina politics, as well as its economy, hostage to the point of a gun. Don’t ask me or the people I represent to breathe a sigh of relief. Instead, I am filled with a righteous indignation. My word to the NCAA is the same as Martin Luther’s to the misguided dupes of his own day, “What pig sites could compare in goings-on with you?...You seem to be a real masterpiece of the devil’s art.” May God forgive the NCAA for what it’s done to the state of North Carolina. ### Media Contact: Dr. Mark CreechExecutive DirectorChristian Action League of North Carolina, Inc.Phone: 919.787.06-6Email: firstname.lastname@example.org

“I just want to do God's will. And he's allowed me to go to the mountain top. And I've looked over, and I've seen the Promised Land! I may not get there with you, but I want you to know tonight that we as a people will get to the Promised Land.” -- Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. “The world seems to have forgotten what Martin Luther King, Jr. knew; we need God’s help” said Evangelist Alveda King, Director of Civil Rights for the Unborn for Priests for Life and niece of MLK. “Pray for President Trump, America, and the World. We must return to God.” Yesterday, in the midst of planning to honor the MLK DREAM with a new Initiative, the Christian Evangelist woke up to the news that Reba McEntire and Lauren Daigle sang ‘Back to God’ at the 2017 ACM Awards. Evangelist King agrees that “as people of One Blood, we must repent, Pray and Unite. “Back to God’ was just the right direction for the times. “Today, April 4, 2017 marks the 49th Anniversary of the death of my Uncle. It is fitting therefore to call for the initial "A Time of Love and Reconciliation" which is being read by talk radio hosts of all political leanings drawing attention to H.R. 194 (110th), a resolution passed by the U.S. House of Representatives on July 29, 2008 that "apologize[d] to African Americans on behalf of the people of the United States, for the wrongs committed against them and their ancestors who suffered under slavery and Jim Crow" and "express[ed] its commitment to rectify the lingering consequences of the misdeeds committed against African Americans under slavery and Jim Crow and to stop the occurrence of human rights violations in the future." It’s an appropriate tribute to MLK’s 49th anniversary of his life and legacy. If he were here today, I believe he would agree with Ted Hays, leader of Heal America Collaborative, Reba and Lauren, and yes, me, and prayerfully lead people everywhere to return back to God,” urges Evangelist King. “In the midst of life’s challenges; racism, war, poverty, human trafficking, abortion violence and evil of every kind; in order to escape the abyss, we need help from God to fulfill Uncle M. L.’s dream today! On this MLK Anniversary, as we join activist Ted Hayes with the launch of A Time of Love and Reconciliation," God’s Word – “Return to Me” – is resonating across the atmospheres; reaching into the darkness and awakening a heavenly fire and light that cannot and will not be denied. I’m honored to have my new book from Elijah List added to the cause; “AMERICA RETURN TO GOD” in proclaiming the very same message. If the Dream of my Uncle Martin Luther King, Jr. is to be fully received, we must return to, we must come back to God. "My wayward children," says the LORD, "come back to me, and I will heal your wayward hearts." ### We depend on you for our support!

Religious Leaders and Prayer Warriors Petition T-Mobile to Stop ‘Unjust’ Charges to Prayer Callers Movement gains traction, surpassing 1,500 signatures, sparking social media conversation to #KeepPrayerFree LOS ANGELES, March 29, 2017 | TruthPR.com | – Freedom to Pray, a nonprofit advocating on behalf of individuals who are being forced to end their participation in prayer groups through free conference lines due to T-Mobile’s $0.01 per minute fee, continues its efforts to bring attention to this issue. As its online petition at www.freedomtopray.org gains traction, social media efforts are mobilizing individuals to speak up on behalf of those who are no longer able to pray on free conference lines because of the added expense. In addition to those directly affected by the fees, several high profile individuals have signed on to the campaign, showing their support for keeping prayer free. These include: actor Kevin Sorbo, author and radio host Autumn Miles, television hosts Honnie Korngold and Holly McClure and film producer Bryan Hickox. Comments from those who have signed the petition show the devastating impact these charges are having on prayer movements around the country. A Fayetteville, N.C., T-Mobile customer wrote: “I was on a line and had to quit. I've been with T-Mobile through 2 name changes, since 2002. I'm retired and my phone bill is high even without the prayer line. I miss the prayer support. I tried to keep it but just can't. My friends with other services are still able to use free conference call. Shame on T-Mobile.” A Bible study leader from West Palm Beach, Fla., said “We had a conference call for our Bible study, and cell phone users received a message prior to connecting indicating we would be charged .01 a minute. Due to the charge I had to cut my study short.” It’s clear that T-Mobile’s actions are causing a decline in prayer around the nation, at a time when many are saying we need prayer more than ever. Prayer ministry leaders involved in the movement, such as David Butts, president of Harvest Prayer Ministries, and Kay Horner, Executive Director of The Helper Connection & Awakening America Alliance, agree. “Not only is this disappointing to the individual T-Mobile user, but on a broader scale, freedom of religion is impacted by preventing people from praying because of the additional cost,” Horner said. “T-Mobile’s actions constitute a spiritual attack on the larger prayer movement undergirding our nation and impacting the world.” It is estimated that millions of minutes were being spent in prayer on free conference lines each month, before T-Mobile started its charges in October. David Erickson, founder of FreeConferenceCall.com, attributes a 20 percent reduction in free conference line use to T-Mobile’s charges on prayer lines. “A majority of our numbers or users affected were prayer lines or people that pray,” Erickson said. “It’s sad to see that prayer line users seem to be disproportionately affected by these fees, and that is why we have joined with Freedom to Pray, to help bring attention to this issue.” T-Mobile continues to position itself as the “Uncarrier”, broadly advertising its plans as having no extra fees, while targeting a diverse demographic of individuals looking for the most economic plans, then hitting them with extra “out-of-plan” fees, which most users cannot afford and are not expecting. The social media outcry has been fierce, and now major national media outlets have begun to pick up the story, including CBN’s “700 Club,” and American Family Radio News. Through the Freedom to Pray website, FreedomtoPray.org, individuals can stand in support of those being charged for prayer by signing an online petition expressing concern about T-Mobile’s attack on prayer and requesting a call to action. The movement also urges individuals to share socially with friends and family using #KeepPrayerFree to encourage them to become informed and involved in the initiative.

Kelli Ward Endorses Sessions Plan to End Sanctuary City Aid Taxpayers forced to fund left-wing local governments “outrageous” TEMPE, AZ, March 28, 2017 | TruthPR.com | – Republican U.S. Senate candidate Kelli Ward endorsed Trump Administration proposals to stop funding for sanctuary cities that do not follow U.S. immigration law. “It’s outrageous that taxpayers are forced to subsidize left-wing local governments who ignore our immigration laws and provide sanctuary to some of the most violent and dangerous criminals anywhere,” Ward said. “Unfortunately, Senator Jeff Flake has joined with liberals and Democrats repeatedly to support illegal alien amnesty,” Ward said. “Perhaps he should run in the Democratic Primary where his liberal views are much more popular. “Arizona needs a Senator who will stand up and fight against illegal immigration and will work to deport the violent criminals being given sanctuary by do-gooder liberal politicians more concerned about the so-called ‘rights’ of illegal aliens than the rights of American citizens,” Ward added. Ward last year held Senator John McCain to just 51 percent of the vote and has announced her candidacy against Flake, considered one of the most vulnerable GOP incumbents in the nation. -30- ________________________________________________________________________ Kelli Ward is a candidate for the US Senate in Arizona.

National Surveys Describe the State Christian Evangelism American Culture & Faith InstituteRelease: March 23, 2017George Barna Many of the religious trends in America over the past decade or so are disheartening to Christians. Church attendance is down. Professions of faith are at low levels compared to the past, resulting in a declining percentage of born again Christians. The number of people who label themselves as Christian is falling. Participation in small groups has dropped by half in less than a decade. The same pattern has characterized adult Sunday school involvement. Bible reading is less common. Even the number of adults who pray to God has decreased significantly in recent years. Read more Additional information about this and related research is accessible on the American Culture & Faith Institute website, located at www.culturefaith.com. ### ABOUT THE AMERICAN CULTURE & FAITH INSTITUTE The American Culture & Faith Institute (ACFI), a division of United in Purpose – Education, is a non-partisan, not-for-profit research organization that regularly conducts national surveys to gauge the sentiment and activity of politically conservative, spiritual active Christians in America. The information gained from these studies is used in various ways: to help UiP in its planning and outreach efforts, to support UiP’s organizational partners in their efforts to impact their circles of influence, to educate the public by sharing insights about conservatives through the media, and to educate Christian church leaders about the people they serve. GEORGE BARNA George Barna is the Executive Director of the American Culture and Faith Institute (a division of United in Purpose). He founded the Barna Research Group in 1984 (now The Barna Group) and has been President of Metaformation, a faith development organization, since 2009. He has served several hundred parachurch ministries, thousands of Christian churches, and many other non-profit and for-profit organizations as well as the U.S. military. He has also been a pollster in three presidential campaigns. Barna has written more than 50 books, mostly addressing cultural trends, leadership, spiritual development, and church dynamics. They include New York Times bestsellers and several award-winning books. He has sold more books based on survey research related to matters of faith than any author in American history. After graduating summa cum laude from Boston College, Barna earned two Master’s degrees from Rutgers University and has a doctorate from Dallas Baptist University. He attends Mission Church in Ventura. Media Contact:Jackie JonesTruthPR.comJackie@TruthPR.com662-259-0988

Author Terry Beatley Requests Debate With Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards The Upside To The Gorsuch Nomination MATHEWS, Vir., March 19, 2017 | TruthPR.com | -- By leveraging the promise author Terry Beatley made to the founder of NARAL, Beatley debunks feminists’ false narrative as it pertains to the confirmation of Gorsuch and “women’s reproductive rights.” By exposing the 8-point propaganda campaign and parting message of Dr. Bernard Nathanson—NARAL’s founder—and the 2003 “Roe” affidavit to OVERTURN the Roe v Wade decision, Terry slays the arguments that feminists use to defend the shedding of innocent blood. Going against all odds, Terry set out in 2011 to fulfill the promise she made to Bernard N. Nathanson, M.D., the regretful cofounder of NARAL. Dr. Nathanson was the preeminent physician who trained Planned Parenthood’s doctors how to exterminate America’s children, exploit women, fast-track Margaret Sanger’s racist population control and legislatively usurp parental rights. Nathanson' propaganda paved the way in our culture for the Roe v Wade decision. In a rare interview, Terry promised Dr. Nathanson that she would deliver his parting message and teach Americans how NARAL deceived our country with an 8-point propaganda campaign. Healing America begins by boldly standing up for Christian-Judeo values and renewing respect for all human life. In a recent George Barna poll on 150 issues, 91% of self-described Christians identify abortion as the #1 issue in which they want the truth with facts and knowledge. This confirms that LIFE is the cornerstone for healing our land. For such a time as this, LIFE will lead as the battle of worldviews rages to determine which one will dominate American laws and policies.

She said she had the discretion not to, and that she would not seek the death penalty for any case that was prosecuted by her while she was in office. Many expressed outrage, including the president of the Orlando Fraternal Order of Police, Orlando Police Chief John Mina, State Representative Bob Cortes, Governor Scott, and Blue Lives Matter.

Trump “correct in standing up for American national security” TEMPE, AZ, March 6, 2017 | TruthPR.com | – Republican U.S. Senate candidate Kelli Ward today hailed President Trump’s Executive Order concerning travel from countries deemed to be state sponsors of terrorism. “President Trump is correct in standing up for American national security through a tough executive order putting the rights of Americans to be safe from terrorism ahead of the non-existent ‘rights’ of those who think they are entitled to enter our country,” Ward, a physician who previously served in the Arizona State Senate, said. In a prepared statement and video from her campaign, Ward noted that the FBI is investigating more than 300 refugees for possible terrorism ties. “Taxpayer dollars are being used to investigate people who may not even have been in the US had enhanced vetting procedures been in place,” added Ward. “People who want to travel to the US from countries that are state sponsors of terrorism, countries that harbor terrorists from groups like ISIS and Al Qaeda and countries without the ability to vet their own citizens must be scrutinized prior to entering our country.” “I fully support the President’s prudent actions to make America safe again,” Ward said. Kelli Ward is challenging incumbent Senator Jeff Flake for the U.S. Senate seat up in the August 2018 Republican Primary. Ward, a physician and former State Senator from Lake Havasu City, held John McCain to just 51 percent of the vote in her 2016 race against the 30-year incumbent. -30- ________________________________________________________________________ Kelli Ward is a candidate for the US Senate in Arizona.

TEMPE, AZ, March 7, 2017 | TruthPR.com | – Republican U.S. Senate candidate Kelli Ward today called on Congress to be bold and fully repeal the ObamaCare disaster just like they did last year, a move, she says, will force Democrats to the table to compromise with majority Republicans. “Americans in 2010 gave Republicans control of the House of Representatives on the promise that ObamaCare would be repealed. But then we were told it wasn’t enough because we didn’t control the Senate. And when the GOP took the Senate in 2014 we were told it wasn’t enough because we didn’t control the White House,” Ward, a physician and former State Senator, noted. “But last year voters rejected the failed Obama-Clinton agenda and elected Donald Trump. Now Republicans control the White House, the Senate and the House but we’re getting a whole new round of excuses,” Ward said. “What Republicans need to do is pass the repeal legislation that we read about in their endless fundraising appeals for the last six years. The era of excuses is over,” added Ward. “The legislation they sent last year to President Obama during reconciliation, and which he vetoed, needs to be sent to President Trump’s desk.” “Now the House leadership expects Americans to accept a bill that continues healthcare welfare, subsidies and mandatory coverage. This is not a repeal but rather cementing a false notion that more government is the solution to problems more government creates,” Ward pointed out. “Congress needs to pass the full repeal bill they sent to President Obama’s desk and allow the free market, liberated from government abuse and manipulation, to lower healthcare costs for all Americans,” Ward said. “ObamaCare is a complete disaster and by repealing it, we’re going to let the free market take over and find new solutions to the problem of skyrocketing premiums, out-of-control deductibles and a loss of consumer choice,” added Ward. “I have outlined the Patient Power Plan based on what I’ve seen on the ground as a medical professional,” Dr. Ward noted. “I hope Congress passes something similar to what I have outlined, but nothing will pass unless Republicans are bold and fight back against the Democrat’s Alinsky tactics. The House Republican approach is the wrong approach.” Ward’s plan moves towards a free market through a combination of tax credits, block grants, Health Savings Accounts and market competition. “By repealing now, Democrats will be forced to the table to compromise with Republicans – because their own constituency will demand it. That’s the art of negotiating and with Donald Trump in the White House, it’s time Republicans act with the knowledge someone has our back, for once,” Ward pointed out. Kelli Ward is challenging incumbent Senator Jeff Flake for the U.S. Senate seat up in the August 2018 Republican Primary. Ward, a physician and former State Senator from Lake Havasu City, held John McCain to just 51 percent of the vote in her 2016 race against the 30-year incumbent. -30- ___________________________________________________________________ Kelli Ward is a candidate for the US Senate in Arizona.

Founder of NARAL Leaves a Dying Wish New book reveals the political strategy of the Abortion Rights Leader WASHINGTON, DC—February 14, 2017 | TruthPR.com | -- His body riddled with cancer, abortion pioneer, Bernard N. Nathanson, M.D., instructed a Virginia mother to teach the strategy of how he deceived America. Terry Beatley promised to deliver his personal parting message. Nathanson is the OB-GYN doctor whose activism and propaganda, in the early 1970s, secured abortion-on-demand for American women. Nathanson was the co-founder of National Association for the Repeal of Abortion Laws (today known as NARAL Pro-Choice America). As the first step in fulfilling her promise, author Terry Beatley set out in 2011 to help defeat a long-term Virginia state senator who was aligned with the abortion industry. Crossing the racial divide and transcending political party affiliations, Terry united a diverse electorate to oust the 7-term senator whose voting record reflected his promises to the abortion industry — not the desires of the voters. The title “What if We’ve Been Wrong?” is a direct quote from Dr. Nathanson’s never-seen-before resignation letter to NARAL. Beatley’s book provides the storyline for a feature film in the works. “Until his life’s end, he was troubled by the ‘incalculable evil’ he unleashed and the subsequent death of millions of unborn babies. Dr. Nathanson wanted the exploitation of women and their children to end.” explains Beatley. Each chapter contains lists of resources to encourage readers to study the issue further. A helpful appendix at the end contains documents such as: Norma McCorvey’s 2003 affidavit requesting that the Supreme Court reverse its Roe v. Wade decision; a legal summary by McCorvey’s two attorneys outlining the six erroneous assumptions made by the Supreme Court in Roe v. Wade; and a list of some of the teenage fatalities caused by the legal abortion industry. “With a powerful inside look at a sinister industry, What If We’ve Been Wrong? is a must read that the millennial generation should not miss!” --Helena Ramirez, Recognized as 2015 Forbes 30 Under 30 for Law & Policy; Washington, D.C. “Leaders of the Future” by Latino Leaders Magazine- Terry Beatley is founder of Hosea Initiative, a 501(c)3 education nonprofit dedicated to teaching the importance of worldview and how it informs one’s attitude toward human life. She lives in Mathews, VA. Her book is available in paperback and hardback on her website, AbortionKing.com.

ATLANTA, GA, February 20, 2017 | TruthPR.com | -- On February 18, my friend and sister Norma [Roe No More] McCorvey passed away. Norma was a valiant voice for justice in the anti-abortion war. We will miss her. Pray for her family and loved ones. Read a statement from her family HERE. While dreaming that morning, I heard this: "Your daddy's a grouch." While opening my eyes, I either thought or replied: "Nope. My Daddy [FATHER GOD] is a King!" I didn't know that as the day progressed I would hear the news of Norma's poignant death or receive a text about First Lady Melania Trump's tender rendition of "The Lord's Prayer" at a rally for her husband President Donald Trump at his U.S. Tour rally in Florida that day. READ FULL ARTICLE HERE My dream was a confirmation of the sovereignty of God. However, sometimes grumpy, self righteous and merciless judgment creeps into the hearts of God's children. When this happens, since we say we are like our Father, it's easy for others to think our Father is a grouch when we act this way. Earlier last week I had turned on the TV to national news before I read my Bible verses for the day. Usually I try not to do this because I need daily heavenly fortification to help me face the problems of the world. However, that morning I overrode my daily regimen: “Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes.” – Matthew 6:34 MSG While standing before the television as I flipped back and forth among the programming, President Trump was being hammered by hostile media. As he described how he was still draining the swamp while bringing new jobs back into America, I began to cheer him on; hoping that he would also speak of his reversing tax payers' funding to abortion providers outside of America as well as the appointments of Dr. Ben Carson to HUD and a prolife Supreme Court Justice. Meanwhile, I was in danger of putting my confidence in President Trump rather than God. Realizing that I was slipping towards emotional reactions, I came to my senses, turned off the television and began to pray: “The first thing I want you to do is pray. Pray every way you know how, for everyone you know... for rulers and their governments to rule well so we can be quietly about our business of living simply, in [peace].” – 1 Timothy 2:1-3 MSG Thursday had been a media day for me, filled with interview responses to my blogs and media appearances regarding race baiting, Bible baiting and sexism; and not enough time praying and meditating in the presence of God. All of the hoopla over my recent interviews had begun to subside as I released a blog that said that race baiting, Bible baiting and sexism across the aisles must cease. On Thursday I texted some fellow prayer warriors: "VERY intense warfare. Heart was getting heavy. On a call right now about exposing spiritual darkness and averting disaster." Friday morning soon after turning away from the TV, I joined a conference call where a report of a "Trump Resistance Movement" was discussed. We wondered if the "Resistance" really understands that their movement is fueled and funded by those who support abortion, anarchy and the like? Do they seriously want to resist restoring jobs from overseas, restoration of our inner cities, putting Americans back to work? Are they seriously resisting ending racism, reproductive genocide, sexual perversion, and global terror? On that phone conference call I shared a word from our "prayer warriors" camp: "Praying to circumvent the demonic structures and infrastructures and traps. Guidance by Holy Spirit. Political correctness is serious witchcraft (mind control). Don't ask God to show up. He is waiting for us to show up. [to wake up, get up and get busy]" I was reminded of many lessons last week: Don't turn on the TV before prayer and Bible reading [and coffee maybe]. Turn off the TV [and radio and social media and human conversation] and pray when your emotions get ahead of your spirit. Pray with encouraging partners who can uplift with unbiased input. Avoid all strife. Love and forgive. Seek highest ground of Agape Love as well as nonviolent conflict resolution. Spend quality time with God. Pray without filtering the Bible or making God's Word a "have it your way" buffet. ### To schedule an Interview with Alveda King, email Jackie@TruthPR.com, call 662-259-0988 or book online here.

Atlanta, GA, February 13, 2017 | TruthPR.com | -- In an effort to address current "hot topics" during Black History Month, Evangelist Alveda King, Director of Civil Rights for the Unborn released the following opinion: The matter of Senator Elizabeth Warren invoking the persona of a civil rights icon to make a point is just the most recently noticed form of tricky political ploys. It’s bad enough that Senator Warren’s voice was silenced while her male counterparts were allowed to speak; apparently by a collaborative approach across the isles. That sexist moment in and of itself is questionable, invoking shades of duplicity over the ongoing battle to define women's rights. Then there's the nasty sting of both Bible baiting and race baiting. Race baiting according to Merriam-Webster, is “the unfair use of statements about race to try to influence the actions or attitudes of a particular group of people.” Race bating, using the vantage point of skin color or ethnicity as an emotional trigger to stir up the public and distract people from reasonably understanding and responding to pertinent issues at hand is a deceptive and counterproductive political practice. Another equally dangerous distraction that is used to distract the American people is “Bible baiting.” Similar to race baiting, Bible bating takes scriptural context and twists it around to fit a particular political message. Both are deadly traps, enemies to civil rights and human rights. In the meantime, it's important to resist shutting down honest conversations about racism, sexism and religion while confronting the problem of using such conversations for manipulation of questionable agendas. At the end of the day, we want to use nonviolent conflict resolution strategies to combat the triple evils, not feed them. For at least the last four decades or so, race baiting, Bible baiting and sexism have been used to distract the American people from the plague that has had the greatest negative impact on human life – abortion. Below are race related quotes from several politicians. Those quoted below espouse either pro-abortion or prolife platforms. Each has intentionally or unintentionally played “the race card” in using their chosen emotionally charged words to make a point in the conversations below. Some of these quotes are from Democrats, some are from Republicans. Most of these cited have apologized for their words once they were published. The quotes are cited simply as examples from just a handful among thousands of political remarks that have resulted in racial tension and disharmony. CLICK HERE FOR QUOTES AND FULL TEXT OF ARTICLE "Each of these quotes, in their own way, caused political firestorms." "Across the congressional isles, race baiting, Bible baiting and sexism have clouded one of the major civil rights issues of our times – the right to be born. People become so distracted by the racial, gender and religious posturing that they forget just how many Americans are dying from abortion, sickness, poverty, violence and other forms of genocide and eugenics in our nation. "Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood was a progressive in her era and she would be a progressive today, supporting the race baiters. She wanted fewer of those she called “unfit.” She wanted what she called “a cleaner race.” "However, God’s Word teaches us that there is no “cleaner” or more “fit” race, only one human race. “He made from one blood every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth…. (Acts 17:26)” "It’s time that we stop allowing ourselves to be divided. Those who use ethnicity, skin color, political preference, religion, income, gender, physical ability or lack of such, or any other classification to divide our communities for their own political gain ultimately do not care for us. They care for themselves and their power." "The next time a self-proclaimed progressive from any political party uses sexism, Bible baiting or race baiting to say that abortion benefits the African American community ask how the termination of 17 million black babies since Roe V Wade of 1973 helps anyone. You might be called a devil and a racist for asking, but those 17 million saints in heaven will call you friend. "Finally, this precautionary warning regarding Bible baiting, race baiting and sexism should by no means preclude healthy discussions that would bring an end to these triple evils. Let's not shut the conversation down. Instead let's dig deeper. "In doing so, Let us each pray; then continue to purpose within our own heart to examine our motives and act for the highest good." "Examine your motives, test your heart, come to this meal in holy awe.” - 1 Corinthians 11:28 MSG To Schedule an Interview email Jackie@TruthPR.com or Contact: Leslie Palma 347-286-7277

For release in the Spring: the world’s first book about this 1537 Reformation bible, the only English bible bought with blood. “This is the untold story of the Matthew Bible, which formed the basis of the King James Version, though unacknowledged” – Author Ruth Magnusson Davis. CANADA | February 9,2017 | TruthPR.com | -- The Matthew Bible was the work of three men. William Tyndale translated the New Testament and the first half of the Old before he was killed. His friend Myles Coverdale gave us the rest of the scriptures. Then a third man, John Rogers, compiled their work, added Reformation commentaries, and published it all as the Matthew Bible. But then he was burned at the stake by Bloody Queen Mary. But the Matthew Bible lived on. It formed the basis of King Henry’s Great Bible, and from there went into the King James Version. Computer studies have shown that the KJV New Testament is 83% from the Matthew Bible. “It has been said that new histories are only justified if the subject matter has been neglected or if it has been misrepresented. Both these things are true of the story of the Matthew Bible,” Ruth said. And she ought to know. She is a retired lawyer, and a scholar of Reformation history and early modern English language and grammar. She founded the New Matthew Bible Project, and worked for seven years to update the New Testament, which was published in early 2016 as The October Testament. It has been well received and the hardcover has already gone to a second printing. Ruth answers such questions as: What is the Matthew Bible? Who translated the Matthew Bible? Why should we care? Why is this important? You have finished the New Testament and published it under the name The October Testament. Can you tell us about it? About the Author:Ruth Magnusson Davis, a Canadian, is a Reformation Anglican, and a retired lawyer with an undergraduate degree in languages. In 2009 she founded the New Matthew Bible Project, dedicated to gently updating the Matthew Bible, a little-known Reformation Bible (“that which we first received”). She began with the New Testament, which is the work of William Tyndale. In 2016, after seven years of work, Ruth published her gentle update of Tyndale’s New Testament as “The October Testament.” She calls it the only modern bible that is not.

ATLANTA, GA., February 1, 2017 | TruthPR.com | -- In response to President Trump's roster of cabinet appointees and new nominee for Supreme Court Judge Neil Gorsuch, Evangelist Alveda King of Civil Rights for the Unborn salutes "our President." She blogs today: "Dear America, President Trump's appointments can solve America's abortion crisis. The connections are uncanny to say the least. "For example, for the past eight years, The Supreme Court, Social Security, Failing Public Schools, tax issues and voter registration problems, and women’s health crisis have been connected to liberal abortion policies. With millions of tax dollars lining the abortion industry's coffers and nearly 60 million legal abortions in America to date, no wonder public schools are closing,social security is drying up, women are suffering from abortion related health problems, and on and on and on. Tax funding to abortion providers depletes the Human Resources, the Human contributions of America! It's time to slay the beast!" In her new book America Return To God, Evangelist King encourages America to pray for our President,all leaders, those in authority and for everyone on earth. Her message ‘to the man in the Oval Office,’ “Yes, Drain the Swamp President Trump! Defund Planned Parenthood.” “I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them. Pray this way for kings and all who are in authority so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives marked by godliness and dignity.” – 1 Timothy 2:1-2 ### To Schedule an Interview with Alveda King, Click here or email Jackie@TruthPR.com

New Parenting Book from Youth Culture Expert Jonathan McKee DALLAS, Tex., February 1, 2017 | TruthPR.com | -- Jonathan McKee understands the joy and the challenges of parenting. In his new book If I Had a Parenting Do-Over (Shiloh Run Press, February 2017) McKee offers real, practical help to parents who would rather learn from someone else’s firsthand experiences in hopes of circumventing their own parenting mess-ups. McKee comments “My own kids, now 19, 21 and 23 are now out of the house, in college and making decisions on their own. As my wife and I watched this we couldn't help but look back at our parenting and ask, ‘Did we equip them for this?’ Or ‘Could we have done this better?’” McKee shares 7 “do-overs” from his own parenting flubs, while offering encouraging advice to help today’s parents. With more than 20 years of experience working with teenagers and studying youth culture, Jonathan offers real-world help for all parents – especially parents with teens in the home. Advance praise for McKees new parenting book includes best-selling author and speaker Shaunti Feldhahn who states, “Every parenting book from Jonathan McKee is a gem, and this one is no exception. Combining his own experience with what other parents have said they wish they had done differently, he clearly presents better ways to lead and connect with your kids, at any age”. President of Focus on the Family, Jim Daly, comments “Do you ever wish you had a parenting mentor to walk alongside you, share the mistakes they made as a parent, and teach you how to avoid those same pitfalls? Now you do! Jonathan McKee offers timeless wisdom for parents who want to look back on their kids’ childhood someday and honestly say they have no regrets.” Delivered with a refreshing blend of humor and vulnerability, McKee’s candid approach grips parents immediately; then real-world application equips them with solid, helpful practices they can actually use in their own homes. With chapters like “Let It Go,” “Press Pause,” and “The Yes Factor,” McKee draws from his years of parenting his own kids and making tweaks in his parenting style along the way, while providing the honest answers today’s parents are seeking.

ATLANTA, GA, January 26, 2017 | TruthPR.com | -- As we get used to expecting the unexpected, President Trump shines the spotlight on tomorrow's March for Life in DC. At the top of his first 100 days, the "man of the hour" points out that the crowd may be bigger than reported because that the media doesn’t give much air time to the annual event. Every year for the last 43 years pro-life activists have convened on Washington to march for life in protest for all the babies being aborted in America and around the world. This yearly March for Life gathering occurs each January on or about the anniversary of the Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court decision, January 22, 1973. Ironically, was born on January 22, 1951. So this "for such a time as this" Kairos Moment is personal for me in many ways, including my post abortive testimony. During previous years, the March coverage has been sparse to say the least. Historically the coverage has been unfavorable, casting the participants in a less than significant light. Added to the slights is the tendency underestimate the crowd size, the tens of thousands often gathering in inclement weather. However, there is a dramatic shift of events this year. In a recent interview with ABC’s David Muir President Donald Trump was asked about last week's Women’s March (which received a lot of media coverage). It's important to note that participation of prolife women were shunned at that event. It’s actually refreshing to have a president in office who supports the sanctity of life and is willing to speak the truth and expect the media out for not doing the same. From our vantage point, the pro-life movement is not asking the media to choose our side over another. We just want fair and balanced coverage, coverage of the truth. I'm in DC for prayer services tonight and in the morning. Please join us, and you can also March actually, and virtually on live stream on EWTN! Finally, if you can’t be there, please pray for all who will be marching for LIFE! ### To Schedule an Interview with Alveda King, click here or email Jackie@TruthPR.com

PORTSMOUTH, VA, January 23, 2017 | TruthPR.com | – Mercy Chefs, a Virginia based non-profit, disaster relief and humanitarian aid organization has deployed their team of professional chefs to feed thousands in Hattiesburg, Mississippi and the surrounding areas. Sunday, the relief group left from their Dallas and Oklahoma bases with one of their state-of-the-art mobile kitchens and a refrigerated trailer in tow, headed for the disaster zone. The team arrived onsite late in the evening yesterday. Today, their chefs will begin serving restaurant quality meals daily for victims, first responders and volunteers. The Mayor of Hattiesburg, Johnny DuPree, and the Governor of Mississippi, Phil Bryant, have declared a state of emergency and have requested rescue and recovery aid from all available agencies. The tornado caused an estimated $200 million in damages, leaving four dead and twenty injured in its path. The need for relief is widespread and urgent.

ATLANTA, GA. January 23, 2017 | TruthPR.com | – “The die is cast and the path is clear for America to learn that abortion is not health care. Abortion kills babies and all too often harms the wombs, health, psyche and souls of mothers. By reinstating the ‘Mexico City Policy’ which saves the lives of thousands of babies and women, President Trump is raising the bar for genuine concern for the lives and health of mothers and our children,” says Evangelist Alveda King, Director of Civil Rights for the Unborn for Priests for Life. The Christian Evangelist is a voice for life, women’s equity, and civil rights. King, along with Bishop Harry Jackson, Pastor Darrell Scoot and many other diverse presenters, was a featured speaker at the 58th Inaugural Prayer Service at The National Cathedral in Washington, D. C. She has long noted her confidence in God and not humans, and said: “It was just awesome to attend the worship service with President Trump, Vice President Pence, their wives and families. God will use not only President Trump, but all who are willing to heal America.” “Thank you President Trump, for caring enough about the lives of women, mothers and children, by reinstating the ‘Mexico City Policy’ during your first 100 days in office.” President Donald Trump signed an executive action on today reinstating the ‘Mexico City Policy, which bars international non-governmental organizations that perform or promote abortions from receiving US government funding. The policy was enacted by the Reagan administration, only to be rescinded by the Obama administration in 2009, allowing during that time, for NGOs that performed abortion procedures to receive US tax payer funding for other programs, including those related to contraception access and post-abortion care. Referencing data from the popular book RECALL ABORTION by Priests for Life colleague Janet Morana, Evangelist King reminds America that “abortion kills babies, and often injures and kills mothers. The wombs of the women of America have been under siege for far too long. Abortion and harmful contraceptives are not health care.” Evangelist King also joins Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life in urging Congress to pass “The No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act – H.R. 7.” According to Father Pavone, H.R. 7 will write the Hyde Amendment into permanent law; extending the measures covering all federal spending, as well as ending taxpayer funding of abortion providers through Obamacare. “Currently, the Hyde Amendment, which has saved an estimated 2 million lives by restricting abortion funding for programs such as Medicaid, must be approved every year by Congress. H.R. 7 will make it permanent, so that it isn't necessary to have this annual budget battle. “By extending the Amendment so that it covers all federal spending, not just programs funded through the Health and Human Services spending bill, it will no longer be necessary for Congress to have multiple votes on multiple measures each year regarding abortion funding from various government funding sources,” explains Father Pavone.

“Every Light Aircraft Pilot Should Have This Book. It May Save Your Life.” -Mark Rose February 2, 2017 | TruthPR.com | -- An avowed atheist, Mark Rose turned to God for the first time when he was 22-years-old as his plane ran out of fuel flying through a massive snowstorm in the Alaskan bush. “If there is a God, I need your help now,” Rose said. Immediately after that prayer, the plane popped out of the snowstorm. “Before me were the beautiful lights of Kotzebue – it might as well have been the lights of heaven,” he recalls. Rose chronicles this story and his years as a bush pilot, hunter and trapper in LAST OF THE LONG HUNTERS. At 16 Rose learned to fly, and by age 22 had become a bush pilot who helped maintain a fleet of helicopters that worked on the Alaska pipeline. In LAST OF THE LONG HUNTERS you’ll have a front seat view of the thrills of bush planes and helicopters operating in the most dangerous conditions on Earth, flying in minus 60 temperatures and horrific storms, airborne among the magnificent mountains and glaciers that only Alaska has to offer. The book opens with a look at early history of the 49th State, leading to the eventual use and development of a new tool of transport – the single engine airplane. While LAST OF THE LONG HUNTERS weaves together thrilling stories of an Alaskan bush pilot, it ultimately compels readers to grapple with its final truth. “Everything I read in the Bible is either a lie or its true. It’s all or nothing. From reading the Bible I understand God is my creator,” Rose said. “If Jesus can raise someone from the dead and forgive my sins, that’s exactly what God has for me.” What People Are Saying: “I highly recommend this book! This is a fantastic read with a big payoff. This is a great read for anyone who loves history, aviation, hunting and true-life stories. We've all enjoyed hearing those unbelievable stories growing up, around a campfire or the dinner table. Those stories that have you on the edge of your seat and the ones that creates heroes. This book is an incredible story and a true story the author lived through and changed his life forever. In addition I enjoyed the setup with the history of Alaska, his growing up in Alaska, the visual journey the author takes you through heading into the vast unknown of the Alaska territory. I'm not a pilot but I found myself following the author's routine and there are a lot of tips in the appendix of the book that are his notes to other pilots where he is wanting to pass his wisdom along.
