Over the last few days, Assemblies of God personnel have made several reports of AG families being caught in harm's way and tragedy resulting.

Late last week, AG workers in the Middle East reported two young brothers from the Lighthouse School in Gaza were killed when a missile from an F-16 jet fighter hit their home.

In Iraq, increasing chaos surrounds believers as a militant group known as the Islamic State (previously known as ISIS) tightens its grip in and around the city of Mosul. All Christians have been ordered to leave the city (leaving all of their property behind) or be executed.

Reports are that many fleeing families were stopped at checkpoints and stripped of money and personal possessions. It is believed most Christian families have now fled Mosul.

Then, over the weekend, Dutch officials released the names of passengers from the Netherlands who were aboard the Malaysia Airlines Flight 17, which was reportedly shot down over the Ukraine, with no survivors.

Among the passengers were Arnoud Huizen, his wife, and their 2-year-old daughter. Arnoud was a former student at Azusa Theological Seminary in Amsterdam. He worked with Chi Alpha at Free University in Amsterdam and did an internship with Teen Challenge.

Tim Southerland, area director of Northwestern Europe, states, "Arnoud was a diligent student who loved the Lord. His death is a great loss to the Dutch Assemblies of God and also among the missionary family who knew and loved him."

Two women from AG churches in Indonesia were also killed.

"Our hearts go out to families and individuals who are suffering in the collateral damage of the civil conflicts taking place throughout the world," says AG General Superintendent George O. Wood. "These trying times afford a challenge to the church of Jesus Christ to offer comfort to the suffering and convey the compassion, love and message of Christ wherever we can."

Assemblies of God Launches Influence Music with New Worship Album

Wed, 31 Jul 2013 - 2:53 PM CST

We Believe

In a partnership with Integrity Music, the Assemblies of God will debuts its new music line, Influence Music, with the release of a new worship album, "We Believe," on Tuesday, August 6, at General Council in Orlando. The first project in a new music initiative - One: A Worship Collective - We Believe features a number of gifted AG worship leaders and songwriters.

We Believe offers churches, worship leaders and individuals an emotionally charged collection of 11 original and rearranged songs which focuses on glorifying Christ through worship, honor and praise.

We Believe was recorded live at the 7:14 Prayer Conference held at Southwestern Assemblies of God University (Waxahachie, Texas) in March 2013.  Its contemporary worship style exudes traditional biblical values and includes a number of songs with more of an acoustic guitar flare, including "Jesus at the Center," "Set My Eyes on You" and "You Are Forever." 

Songwriters and worship leaders featured on the album include Clayton Brooks (The Oaks Fellowship AG, Red Oak, Texas), Ryan Williams (River Valley Church AG, Apple Valley, Minnesota), Kurtis Parks (National Community Church AG, Washington, D.C.), Elmer Cañas Jr. (Calvary Church AG, Irving, Texas) and others.

Other songs on the album include the cover, "We Believe" along with "Like Never Before," "Take Me In," "Come Like the Dawn," "Every Good Gift," "To Honor You," "We Crown You" and "Great I AM."

"The partnership between Influence Resources/Influence Music and Integrity Music to create a product with a powerful message of faith is another step in the journey of creatively resourcing the Church," states Steve Blount, vice president of Publishing, Influence Resources.

To download three of the We Believe albums songs for free, visit the album's website. Also, stories from the artists and acoustic studio versions of several singles are available to watch and listen to on the site.  The full We Believe album will be available to download from iTunes and the My Healthy Church store beginning Tuesday, August 6.
