Pensacola News Journal Published 11:00 p.m. UTC Jun 15, 2018 A Brewton, Alabama woman says she can't express how grateful she is to the Good Samaritan who revived her infant child with CPR after her family's boat sunk into Pensacola Bay. The waves were too powerful for the 14-foot motorboat that Shelby Lassiter, her husband, Russell, and two small children were riding in on May 18. Just a couple of hours into what was intended to be a leisurely family outing, the family of four was knocked into the water and left to tread desperately while shouting out for help. "I told my husband, 'I don't feel safe, I think it's time to go back to land,'" Lassiter told the News Journal, while recalling the moments before sinking. "And we were trying to head back when a big (wave) came over the front of the bow and we just started sinking. My husband turned and looked at me and I knew by the look on his face that this was not good." … [Read more...] about Good Samaritan saves baby after family boat sinks in Pensacola Bay
Saving sacred land
Those seeking to follow the historical trails of Jesus of Nazareth can spend endless days and nights in the Holy Land. Perhaps the ultimate immersion into the connection with Jesus’ path is the Gospel Trail. If you don’t have time for a 65-kilometer trail, theologian and historian, Gary Frazier, Ph.D. has a top five list that can be done in as little as two days. Frazier has traveled to Israel more than 150 times since 1971. The former Protestant pastor has taken tens of thousands of Christian congregants and more than 2,200 senior pastors on his trips. He says spending 10 days in Israel can be a better learning experience than a year in the seminary. “To go to Israel is an investment in your spiritual growth because it’s the single greatest opportunity for accelerated spiritual growth that you’ll ever have,” says Frazier. Frazier, who has seen a large increase in American Christians going to Israel in the last few years says these pilgrimage sites … [Read more...] about Top Christian Sacred Spots to See in Israel

Nearly 200 feral horses, besieged with famine and dehydration, were found dead on a dried-up stock pond on Navajo land in Arizona. The animals went to the pond in Gray Mountain, an unincorporated community in Coconino County in north central Arizona, in search of water. But they somehow found themselves burrowed into the mud and too weak to escape, said Jonathan Nez, vice president of the Navajo Nation, which is the largest Native American tribe in the country and covers parts of Arizona, New Mexico and Utah. Some of the 191 horses were buried neck deep in the mud, Navajo officials said. Some were buried beneath others. Pictures show the horses' overlapping bodies, arranged roughly like a circle, as they lie on the parched earth. The mass deaths come as Arizona experiences an exceptional drought unlike anything it's seen in more than a decade. Navajo officials say horses dying near an empty watering pond is "not a new but a seasonal issue." The deaths also underscore an overpopulation … [Read more...] about Nearly 200 free-roaming horses died searching for water on Navajos’ parched land
