Challenging and inspiring today’s youth
to understand the values of personal responsibility,
self discipline and character.
Let Face It. Today’s teenagers are in a whole new
area when it comes to sexually transmitted
diseases. They’re facing consequences that teens
from previous generations couldn’t even imagine.
That is why it is so important to make sure that
today’s teens hear straight talk…about sex, about
the consequences, about life and death choices that
they meet every single day. Pam tackles today’s
tough issues of sex with candor, insight and humor
while challenging young people to embrace the
benefits of abstinence.
Day after day teens that hear Pam’s message say, “If
someone would have explained the consequences, I
would have made a different choice, but NOBODY TOLD
ME.” In October, we have scheduled 6 school
assemblies and a parent night in our area. We can’t
make decisions for our youth, but we can explain the
consequences of their choices.
We are seeking support for
this event from the Body of Christ. Some of the
schools participating are helping financially. We
pray that the churches will sow seeds of abstinence
in their communities.
We have resources of Pam’s to loan out for our Team
Councils and for churches. Contact Donna at
or at 417-754-8774. We have the
video “Sex Has A Price Tag” and the
video “Take A Look In The Mirror”.

Thank you to the Arcola Christian Church Team

The Parent Night will be hosted and paid for by

Stem Cell Research
Is This a Life Issue?
By Mark Sutherland
(The following is excerpts taken from his article.)
There are two distinct forms of stem cell research.
There are no ethical concerns whatsoever with adult
stem cell research.
The moral and ethical problems arise with embryonic
stem cell research, which requires the killing of
unborn children as part of the research process.
After years of research, there have been absolutely
no success with embryonic stem cell research. But
incredible successes with adult stem cell research.
So why is there such an overwhelming push for
The simple reason so many special interest groups
are pushing hard to get embryonic stem cell research
funded by the government and kept legal is money.
There are numerous government grants that consist of
millions and millions of dollars-which is very
attractive to research facilities. Then there are
patents that researchers can get on stem cell lines.
They can’t patent adult stem cells because you can’t
patent a human. But if they are successful in
denying the humanity of cloned embryos, they can
then patent those cells and make money from every
single cell that is created. It’s all about the
almighty dollar, but as Matthew 6:24 states; You
cannot serve both God and Money (NIV). Scripture is
quite clear in IICorinthians 12:14. We should not
sacrifice our youngest in a vain attempt to better
our lives. In fact, we should sacrifice everything
to ensure that our children have the best possible
In conclusion, this ministry believes the scientific
evidence is there to prove that embryonic stem cell
research creates life, then kill it. As Christians
we must oppose the embryonic form of stem cell
research and all types of cloning, while fully
supporting the benefits and successes of adult and
umbilical cord stem cell research. ( there is more
to this article, if you would like a full copy we
can mail it to you)
AAkM, as a ministry totally supports these views.

Will Your Kids be Christians?
Judy attended a meeting with “Pilots for Christ
International” at the Bolivar airport. She says,
“This group was from the KC/Heartland Chapter. They
were in Bolivar to start a Chapter there”. Pilots
for Christ fly missions of mercy, assisting
families to get to destinations and their quest to
find medical help for serious conditions. PCI is not
a religion. They represent practically every
Christian denomination known and are dedicated to
the promotion of the gospel throughout the aviation
community. For further information on this

Will Your Kids be
By Bruce Shortt
Many evangelicals were shocked last June when Dr.
Albert Mohler, the Southern Baptist Convention’s
leading theologian, wrote that it is now time for
responsible Southern Baptist to develop an exit
strategy from public schools. But why should it have
been shocking? We find comfort in our delusional
beliefs that “our schools are different” or that “my
child is salt and light”. If we are forced to
confront some of the uncomfortable facts about the
government’s schools, we nervously shuffle our feet
and try to change the subject. Why? The reason is
our need for self deception. Recently George Barna
reported that only 4% of our teens can be considered
evangelical Christians. Will your children be
Christians? Unless parents and pastors decide to
change their priorities, the data from Barna and
others demonstrate that the answer is clearly “no”
for 90% or more for Christian parents. Do you care?
If you do, you and your church will follow Dr.
Mohler’s advice and begin developing an exit
strategy from the public schools.

The Sorriest Generation: by Chuck Baldwin
If the World War II
generation was America's greatest generation (while
it was great, I believe the founding generation was
actually America's greatest), this generation is
America's sorriest generation! In fact, I am ashamed
of my generation. Furthermore, it seems the one
coming behind me is even worse, if that's possible.
If God doesn't miraculously intervene on behalf of
our once great nation, we are doomed! And I do not
say this lightly or without deliberation.
Financially, America is bankrupt and living on
borrowed monies. In all likelihood, it is beyond
financial recovery. Culturally, America is decadent
and, apart from divine intervention, beyond repair.
Politically, America has abandoned constitutional
government and is now in the hands of lawless thugs.
Spiritually, America is apostate. The vast majority
of America's Christian leaders are aiding and
abetting our spiritual demise. Every single standard
of national greatness has fallen into the basement!
America has lost its identity and is fast losing its
language! We have lost our Christian heritage, and
most Christians either don't notice or don't care.
We are losing our borders and our resolve to protect
them. Foreigners control our debt, and now President
Bush wants to give them control of our ports. And
for the most part, foreigners even control our
foreign policy. In addition, politicians and
preachers alike are slaves to the rich and powerful.
Beyond that, our nation has become addicted, yes,
even obsessed, with sports, leisure, and gambling!
Sports celebrities are more than icons, they are
gods! Leisure is more than a pastime, it is the
greatest motivation for living. It seems that all
people dream about is having the financial ability
to retire. By retirement they mean living a life
without responsibility, duty, or obligation. In
other words, a life of total self-absorption. And
since most are unwilling or even incapable of
earning such a life, gambling is the preferred
method of obtaining this ultimate life of
irresponsibility. Let me ask a question: what is
this greedy generation going to leave their
posterity? The answer is NOTHING! On the whole, this
generation doesn't know how to give; it only knows
how to take. This generation doesn't care about
out-of-control federal spending, because its
personal spending is out-of-control. It doesn't know
how to hold politicians accountable to the
Constitution, because it cannot even hold its own
children accountable to much of anything. I am
reminded of the Old Testament story of King Hezekiah
who, after being told by the prophet Isaiah that his
sons would be conquered by Babylon and taken into
slavery and responded by saying that at least "there
shall be peace in my days." In other words, as long
as Hezekiah could sit on his easy chair, he just
didn't care. As long as he did not have to endure
the pain and affliction of divine judgment, he was
satisfied. As long as he was comfortable, he didn't
really care what kind of heartache and grief his
children and grandchildren would be forced to
experience. Everything revolved around his own peace
and comfort. If you ask me, the word for that is
SORRY. And if you ask me further, that is exactly
where this generation of Americans finds itself
today. What kind of generation is it that does not
give a rip about what kind of country it is leaving
for its children? What kind of spoiled, selfish
brats have we become that we can be so flippant
about the continual loss of our country's liberties
and freedoms? What kind of self-centered monsters
have we become that our great ambition in life is to
sit back, do nothing, accomplish nothing, change
nothing, resist nothing, and leave nothing? When the
wicked King Belshazzar saw God's finger writing
warnings of judgment on the wall, he trembled. He
had good reason to tremble. That same night, he was
killed and his kingdom conquered. To anyone with
eyes to see, God is writing His warnings of judgment
all over the walls of America. However, we are even
worse than Belshazzar. We don't even know how to
