“K-9 HERO AWARDS” PREMIERES THURSDAY, MAY 12 AT 5PM ET

ON GAC FAMILY

Special Presentation to Honor America’s Top Performing Police and Military K-9 Heroes

NEW YORK, NY – April 28, 2022 – GAC Family will honor America’s top performing Police and Military K-9 Heroes in an all-new special “K-9 Hero Awards.”  Hosted by Larissa Wohl alongside US Army Veteran and certified K-9 Trainer, James Craigmyle, “K-9 Hero Awards” will premiere on GAC Family on Thursday, May 12 at 5pm ET.  The special presentation is created in partnership with Project K-9 Hero, an organization dedicated to providing assistance for our nation’s heroic working dogs. 

“K-9 Hero Awards” showcases the incredible achievements and devoted service of Police K-9s, Military Working Dogs, Fire Department K-9s and Search and Rescue K-9s at the Local, State and Federal levels.  K-9 Heroes are crowned in seven categories: Patrol Apprehension, Narcotics Detection, Tracking and Trailing, Firearms Detection, Search and Rescue, Accelerant Detection, and Explosives Detection.  Award winning K-9s in each category will receive free medical coverage for life from Project K-9 Hero. 

Project K-9 Hero is a national nonprofit 501c3 organization, whose mission is to provide medical care, food, and death benefit assistance for our nation’s retired Police K-9s and Military Working Dogs. Project K-9 Hero also helps K-9s who need a home after their service, through rehabilitation and adoption. Project K-9 Hero is actively engaged with Members of Congress to pass a law that grants federal funding towards the medical care for retired working dogs through the K-9 Hero Act.

“K-9 Hero Awards” is part of GAC Family’s broadening commitment to quality, pet-centric programming that raises awareness for important causes supporting animal welfare in America.  In February, GAC Family announced “Great American Rescue Bowl” a new special slated to air in 2023 which will showcase kittens, puppies, cats, and dogs available for adoption at shelters across the country.

“K-9 Hero Awards” is produced for GAC Family by Pleasant Street Entertainment.

It’s Time for Conservatives and Liberals to Find Things to Work on Together

Biblically speaking, we are very possibly living in the last days. With that being the case, don’t you think it’s time for Conservatives and Liberals to work together on issues that are for the betterment of the world and in particular the United States of America?

The 2 videos here show fitting examples of how people who disagree on many things (in the case of Hannity and Penn most things) can work together and get things done.

The Lord has been working on me about this – I can gripe and complain about issues that I 100% believe I am correct about, but instead of doing all the griping and complaining, why don’t I just wrap my arms around someone who needs Jesus as their personal Savior and show them real Christian love.

I love what Mike Pence says to the young man who asks him hypothetically what if one of your children came out as gay, how would you respond, what would you tell them? Pence says I would look them in the eye and tell them I love you.

As a person who has a gay son, I had that exact opportunity that this hypothetical question presents. My response has always been I love you as much today as the day you were born.

Blessings,

Pastor Ed

CBN Reports: Senate and House Lawmakers Call for Investigation into Deaths of Five Aborted Late-Term Babies in DC

GOP lawmakers are calling on Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser, Chief of the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department Robert Contee, and U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland to investigate reports of possible late-term abortions at a clinic in the nation’s capital.

Sen. James Lankford (R-OK) was joined by 17 Republican senators and five Republican House members in sending a letter demanding an investigation into the deaths.

The case centers on the discovery of the remains of five fully formed, potentially viable babies who were aborted.

For another article from CBN News about this same topic: ***READ: ‘I’ve Never Seen Anything So Evil and Grotesque’: What Happened in the Case of the 5 Full-Term Aborted Babies?

Demand justice for the 5 babies slaughtered

Paul, I’ve been doing pro-life work for over 15 years, and the recent news out of D.C. has broken me all over again. 

After seeing an image of one of the five babies – a beautiful baby boy – nearly full-term, naked and dumped in a bucket as “medical waste,” possibly born alive and left to die… it is hard to comprehend the cruelty he endured. I keep thinking of my own two sons, especially my youngest, born just a few months ago. 

The pain is devastating. The abortionist responsible for their deaths is still at large and must be brought to justice to save future children. 

If you didn’t see my email last Friday or haven’t been aware otherwise… I’m referencing #JusticeForTheFive.  

The mangled bodies of babies were found by pro-life activists in Washington, D.C., labeled as “medical waste.”   

Update for you: The D.C. government is still refusing to take action to investigate the killing of these five innocent babies, some of whom may have been murdered in violation of state and federal law. Their inaction is inexcusable.  

We must do everything in our power to obtain #JusticeForTheFive and prevent abortionist Cesare Santangelo from killing more children. Crimes against children like these cannot be allowed to stand in our country.  

How you can help right now: Contact D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser to demand an autopsy and investigation into the killing of these five children: (202) 727-2643 

Here are some talking points for you:

The Medical Examiner is currently in possession of the bodies of five children who may have been killed through illegal abortion. 

The Medical Examiner must perform a full autopsy and make his thorough report known so the public can understand what happened to these children. 

Doctors who have seen pictures of these kids conclude that there may have been violations of the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act and the Born Alive Infant Protection Act. If true, these are serious federal crimes. 

Please ensure that after a full investigation of how these children died and if the abortionists violated federal laws, the babies be laid to rest with dignity and given a proper burial. 

Paul, your immediate action could make all the difference. 

The organization Progressive Anti-Abortion Uprising (PAAU) confirmed in a press conference today that the bodies of the five infants were recovered from Curtis Bay Medical Waste Services outside Cesare Santangelo’s abortion facility in D.C. on March 25th when a driver gave the activists a box of aborted children set to be burned as medical waste. 

The bodies of murdered children are not medical waste. 

But it gets even worse… Curtis Bay’s website says it incinerates biomedical waste to turn it into “useful energy.”  

It’s absolutely horrifying to realize that precious babies are being killed and then burned and turned into electricity or other energy sources for homes and businesses. Every American must know these devastating actions are happening so we can wake up and end this real-life horror story.  We CANNOT let our country become a place where infanticide becomes normalized and where “doctors” can kill with impunity. 

We must work urgently to end abortion and make all violence against any innocent child, whether born or preborn, prohibited by law and firmly rejected by our culture.  

These five children deserve our collective mourning, they deserve swift justice, and they deserve a proper burial. 

Please take swift action by contacting D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser so that justice can be served and future children can be spared this brutality. Use the talking points above and call this number: (202) 727-2643 

Paul, your activism right now is critical. These precious children deserve justice, and the attention being given to them right now provides the opportunity to raise awareness to EVERY preborn baby in danger of brutal death by abortion or infanticide. 

We have no time to lose.

Thank you for joining us in this important, life-saving work. 

For life,

We Encourage You To Help Support Relief Efforts For Ukraine

On Tuesday’s Boston Prayer and Share Hour, I said that I would look into some ways that followers of Ed Boston Ministries and others could assist in helping with the situation in Ukraine.

I’m sure there are many outstanding ministries and organizations doing remarkable things, but after doing some research I believe that my best recommendation is for the two organizations shown below, Samaritan’s Purse and Operation Blessing.

Amy and I as well as The Father’s House church will be making donations to both Christ centered groups.

First here are the donation links and following are links to their websites where you can find out more information on what they are doing in Ukraine.

About Samaritan’s Purse: They have deployed a 30-bed Emergency Field Hospital to UkrainePhase 1 of our Tier 2 Emergency Field Hospital deployment began Friday, March 4.

Our DC-8 cargo plane based in Greensboro airlifted the initial stages of the field hospital along with Disaster Assistance Response Team (DART) members, including doctors, nurses, and logistics and set-up personnel. Once the plane lands in Poland, the field hospital will then be transported overland to Ukraine where it will provide specialized trauma care to people impacted by the conflict.

The field hospital is equipped with an operating room (up to 15 surgeries per day), an ICU, an emergency room, a pharmacy, and it has its own water and sanitation system. As many as 100 patients a day can be seen at this hospital, and it will be operated by more than 50 staff (medical and non-medical). The situation on the ground is fluid and changing rapidly, but the hospital could be operational early next week.

About Operation Blessing:

**Right now, Operation Blessing teams are responding to the crisis in Ukraine, providing emergency relief and supplies to families and individuals in need including food kits, bottled water, and even generators. Please join us in supporting these families in desperate need today.**

In many of these cases, man’s inhumanity to man can feel overwhelming and gut wrenching. These are some of the darkest days in the lives of people caught in the fray, yet you can reach out to them with hope and be a light in that darkness.

It’s only through your support that Operation Blessing is able to reach out with critical humanitarian aid in times like these. You can provide relief such as food, medical care, clean water, shelter, mattresses, generators, encouragement and even trauma counseling.

This is all vitally important not only to care for their bodies, but also their souls. In this way, you let them know that someone sees their terrible plight, and that you care.

Horrifying Update for Christians – From ACLJ

Christians are running out of time. TODAY we’re taking urgent action.

Every day, 16 Christians are killed for their faith across the globe.

Afghanistan was just designated the most dangerous country for Christians in the world by a leading persecution watch group. In Nigeria, Christian pastors are beheaded. In India, Christians are jailed and discriminated against. In Pakistan, our affiliate on the ground is representing Christians on death row for their faith. The persecution is unbearable.

And in Afghanistan, the Taliban is going door to door looking for Christians to kill and unmarried women to take captive. Christians are hiding in their homes fearing what the Taliban will do to them – a genocidal persecution.

Our contact on the ground in Afghanistan reports that “men, women and children are subjugated, beaten, and executed for their beliefs that differ from the tyrannical Taliban.”

We are taking emergency action TODAY, submitting 5 critical written submissions directly to the U.N. on each of these countries – some of the absolute worst persecuting nations. Dying Christians need our voice. As we file at the U.N. TODAY, we urgently need your support.
