Zachery Tims’ Ex-Wife Speaks Out at Church Service

Zachery and Riva TimsRiva Tims, the ex-wife of the late Pastor Zachery Tims Jr., addressed more than 2,000 people gathered at New Destiny Christian Center in Orlando, Fla., Monday night. The 42-year-old Zachery Tims was found Friday at 6 p.m. in a W Hotel room in New York City. The official cause of death is not yet known.

Riva Tims, who left the church in 2008 during a scandal and eventual divorce in which Zachery Tims admitted to an “indiscretion,” told the congregation that she, her ex-husband and their four children traveled together to Puerto Rico the week prior to his death.

“God saw it fit that we would have an opportunity to spend a few days together with him,” she said to the crowd who never took their seats while she spoke. “He was able to fellowship with his sons and his daughters. He was able to take pictures with them.”

Despite 200 Murders, Iraqi Church Grows Strong

Despite 200 Murders, Iraqi Church Grows Strong

andrewwright_1.jpgMost Bible-believing Christians would probably run from a church after one or two of its members were murdered, much less after witnessing 200 killed in the first six months of the year.

Indeed, many of the most fervent saints would abandon a congregation where bomb blasts are the norm and where saints are kidnapped on a weekly basis.

Despite these horrible realities, however, Iraqi Anglican Canon Andrew White says his Baghdad church is 4,000 people strong—and his members are among the happiest church-goers he’s ever seen.

“So many Christians have been killed,” White said in an exclusive interview with Charisma Publisher Steve Strang which you can watch below.

Dragons’ Delivering Power

Dragons’ Delivering Power

Dragons’ Delivering PowerIt’s not often that one walks away from a film literally transformed. But that’s exactly what happened to actor Wes Bentley after starring in There Be Dragons, which releases in theaters May 6. 

Derived from true events, There Be Dragons
follows two young men who find themselves on opposite sides of the
Spanish Civil War. Josemaria Escriva, a Catholic priest (played by
Charlie Cox), and Manolo Torres, a bitter soldier (played by Bentley),
showcase the extreme positions one can take when faced with dire
circumstances. 

Escriva was named a saint in the
Catholic church in 2002, and the film showcases his life of faith and
forgiveness, while Bentley’s character is deceitful and selfish.

Deaf Leading the Deaf to Jesus

Deaf Leading the Deaf to Jesus

Deaf Leading the Deaf to JesusIn China, nearly 72 million people are denied access to work, education and community, not because of race or gender but because of a disability. Many deaf Chinese turn to deaf-led gangs to find love and acceptance. But Hearts and Hands, a ministry based in Kunming, Yunnan, in southwest China, is working to be advocates for the deaf. Through the ministry the hearing-impaired learn Chinese sign language, as well as how to read, write and learn a trade. They also learn about Christ.

“The deaf Chinese are very open to the gospel because any disability is considered a curse,” says Jane Ramsey, a deaf American who taught English in China for 25 years and joined the ministry in 2004.

Fighting Sex Trafficking One Tweet at a Time




A Florida journalist plans to fight sex trafficking one “tweet” at a time by using the social networking site Twitter to mobilize 9,000 people to give $9 on Sept. 9.

Diana Scimone, founder of Born to Fly International, a nonprofit child advocacy organization, hopes to raise $81,000 tomorrow to begin printing Born to Fly, a children’s book she wrote to raise awareness among children and parents about the sex trafficking industry.

Remembering Juneteenth

Remembering Juneteenth

Two Christian ministers say a little-known holiday could serve as a catalyst to promote healing and racial reconciliation.

Juneteenth, which is recognized Friday, is considered by some to be a second Independence Day, marking the official end of U.S. slavery. Although the Emancipation Proclamation freed all U.S. slaves when it went into effect on Jan. 1, 1863, slaves in the Southwest weren’t notified of their freedom until Union soldiers arrived in Galveston, Texas, on June 19, 1865.
