MANEADERO, Baja California, Mexico — Christians from Southern California traveled by tour buses to a suburb of Ensenada, Mexico, to join 150 local missionaries and believers recently to attend the grand opening of Puerta Hermosa (Beautiful Gate) Orphanage, a complex that serves as the home for abandoned and severely ill special needs children of Baja.

A couple of days before the ceremony on Saturday, Beautiful Gate Orphanage and Genesis Diez (umbrella ministry) founder Greg Amstutz told this reporter the story of two children who were the first taken in for care, resulting in the start of the Beautiful Gate Orphanage 10 years ago. more >>
Actor Arturo Muyshondt believes his role as a modern day hero in "The Pastor" can spearhead positive social change in communities throughout the world that are overwhelmed by criminal gang activity.

Set in Brooklyn, New York, Muyshondt plays a former gang leader who discovers Christ in prison. When he's released, he seeks out underprivileged youth in his neighborhood to mentor and direct them toward a life that doesn't involve drugs and crime. more >>
