Can Muslims and Christians Live Together in Peace?

Please join Mr. Aaron Atwood, vice president of Advancement for Summit Ministries as he interviews Dr. Mateen Elaas.  Mateen was the second of four children born to a Syrian Muslim.  While studying at the University of Wisconsin, he began a search for God. Mateen was guided by Christians who pointed him to Christ.  "Read the four gospels of the New Testament.  Get to know Jesus," they said.  He did.  Eventually, he became a Christian, a follower of Jesus Christ. As is common in Middle Eastern families, he soon paid a high price for his newfound faith: isolation from his father for more than a decade. Today, Mateen works with churches and Christian groups eager to learn about Islam, its claims and challenges, and how to share the gospel winsomely and effectively with Muslims. He is eager to respond to opportunities for teaching and training Christians in these timely matters.  Read more about Mateen Elaas.

Arizona Origin Science Association Meeting March 28

(Originally scheduled for March 21, this meeting will take place on March 28 instead.)  The Arizona Origin Science Association (AZOSA) will be meeting Tuesday, March 28 at 7:00 pm at the Payson Public Library Meeting Room. Mike Riddle, president of the Creation Training Initiative, will present "4 Power Questions to ask an Evolutionist." If you have anyone in your circle of influence who likes to challenge your views on biblical origins, posing these 4 questions will provide you with evidence that your opponent will not be able to disprove!

Further, these 4 foundational questions establish why evolution cannot be defended scientifically and must rely on faith.

The seminar shows how the layperson can successfully witness to an evolutionist.

This meeting, as with all AzOSA meetings, is open to the public and is FREE!

The featured speaker, Mike Riddle, has a B.A. from Colorado State University, and an M. Ed. from Pepperdine University.  In addition to being president of the Creation Training Initiative , Mr. Riddle is also an Adjunct Staff member for Answers in Genesis.  

For more information, call or email Michael Calcagno, the AzOSA Gila Division VP, at 503-476-2300 or gila@azosa.org.
