"Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children and
live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave Himself
up for us as a gragrant offering and sacrifice to God."
-- Ephesians 5:1-2

Greetings in the Name of the Lord,

Welcome again to our weekly issue of The HIS-Net Christian Newsletter.
This is our 20th issue since starting up in April 1997. We've
attempted to share with you Christian web sites that perhaps would
be a blessing to you... would be educational to you... or would
be entertaining to you. From the feedback we've received from our
readers, we think we've met that expectation.

Our mission at HIS-Net Christian Network has always been to promote
Christian web sites who otherwise would get lost in the murkiness of
the millions of web pages on the web. Many of our services have been
at no cost to brothers and sisters in the Lord. Many of you have supported
our work financially by advertising on our web site and in this newsletter.
Our company, Ticsay Internet, has been blessed with additional web site
work, programming, and graphics design. I praise the Lord for
all He has done.

"Sometimes the Lord calms the storm; sometimes He
lets the storm rage and calms His child."

As we've grown on the web, so have demands on our services and time
away from the family has increased. In order to balance our efforts, we
are eliminating some services from HIS-Net Christian Network. Recently,
we eliminated the ICQ Chat List, because the quality of Christian
messaging and fellowship came to the level of email chain letters,
mail bombs, and rumors about ICQ pulling its FREE service. ICQ is
great for one-to-one messaging, so if it is suitable for your
application, please continue to use it. We simply are not able to
maintain the member list.

Due to the tremendous success of The "NEW" HIS-Net Christian Banner
eXchange and to make more web server space available, we are pulling
the plug on The Original Christian Banner eXchange site. If you have
a link to http://www.his-net.com/cbx/, please change it to point to
The "NEW" HIS-Net Christian Banner eXchange at http://www.his-net.com/cbx2/.

We are also eliminating WebResource for Webmasters, formerly at
http://www.his-net.com/web/. We will be dropping back on the monthly
contests and have them "on occasion". And, this newsletter will be
published MONTHLY after the August 30th issue.

All of these sites and activities take many hours each week to pull
together. So, we hope you understand the need to reduce the work load.
If any of you are interested in continuing any of these "dropped"
services on YOUR web site, please contact us at webservant@his-net.com.

Our three main services that remain at HIS-Net Christian Network are:

Christian Banner eXchange (http://www.his-net.com/cbx2/)
Christian Resource Directory (http://www.his-net.com/html/)
HIS-Net Christian Newsletter (http://www.his-net.com/newsletter.html)

We welcome your comments and feedback any time. May the Lord richly
bless you, your families, your ministries and your businesses.

In His Name,

Arnel Ticsay
HIS-Net Christian Network

We've been asked by our service provider to temporarily disable
the ability to display CBX banners because the load on our server
was bringing the server down. We are working on a permanent solution
right now and hope to get CBX back up as quickly as possible.

Since banners are not being displayed there will be no change in
your credit counts or your impression counts. If someone clicks on
the banner, it will take them to a member web site and a click-through
will be recorded. So, you have the option of temporarily removing the
CBX banner from your web site or leaving it up.

We recently moved to our current server about 5 weeks ago in order to
release CBX. We get unlimited traffic (hits) to the web site and we
are on a T3 connection. Our problem is not the traffic to the site. It
is related to the perl script we use to display the banner. We need
to make our script more efficient thereby using less overhead each time
it runs, or make it into a C executable so it runs more efficiently, or
move (again) to a server on which we are the only site. The last choice
is very expensive.

If you have any suggestions, please let us know. But, please do not offer
another service provider which is basically the same as what we have now.
We're looking for help with our perl script or making it a C excutable.
Thank you.

[Note: these listings above are chosen from some of the new
sites listed on HIS-Net Christian Network. We provide them
here as a resource to help our readers discover other Christian
web sites. While we will attempt to verify that each link points
to a web site that glorifies God, proclaims their faith in Jesus
Christ, and that no offensive or irresponsible material is
referenced, we cannot guarantee this will always be the case
for every pointer below. Do not believe everything you read. Test
the claims against the written Word of God, the Bible. May the
Lord Jesus guide you as you enjoy God's Internet.]
