    Moscow, March 30, Interfax - The Russian Orthodox Church and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) will hold a World Summit of Christian Leaders in Moscow, on October 28-30, in support of persecuted Christians.

"The reason for conducting such a large-scale event are the mass persecutions, unprecedented in contemporary history, of Christians in the Middle East, Africa and other world regions, comparable to the persecution of Christians in the early centuries and mass repressions by atheist authorities in the...

    Wells Fargo already lost a multi-million-dollar customer last week. Now, the bank can expect to lose a few more. American Family Association (AFA) has sent an Action Alert to its hundreds of thousands of friends and supporters, urging Christians to close their Wells Fargo accounts, as the financial institution becomes an even more staunch supporter of the LGBT lifestyle. "For years, Wells Fargo has supported a lifestyle that is not in line with biblical standards, so now it's time for Christians to pull their business from the bank," said AFA President Tim Wildmon.

    Franklin Graham, the president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and the family’s international humanitarian organization Samaritan’s Purse, said that the IRS notified the organizations in September that it was conducting a “review” of their activities for tax year 2010.

    PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti—The day begins early in the capital city: In the middle of packed streets, whole families rouse from sleep as the sun comes up, stumbling out of makeshift tents crammed along the entire length of cracked medians. Others huddle under tarps and sheets that cover the open space in small parks and soccer fields, a sign they are either now homeless or afraid to return to homes that might be structurally damaged. On another street corner, some 200 people form a growing mass at a tiny bus stop, waiting for the multi-colored school buses that have long bustled...

    The first Samaritan’s Purse cargo plane arrived in Haiti Wednesday with emergency relief supplies for victims of the massive earthquake that rocked the country on Tuesday. The initial shipment included shelter material, hygiene kits, and water purification kits, as well as members of our disaster response team. Our team is comprised of veterans of many disaster responses, but even they were shocked by what they encountered when they arrived. “The streets are full of people that have no home to go back to,” said Dr. David Gettle, medical advisor. “They’re running out of food, fuel, and water. The situation is...
