The BIG News: HIS-Net is under new ownership!

HIS-Net is now owned and operated by Word.Net Communications, a
Christian Web Solution Provider who's been providing reliable,
cost-effective web services to Businesses, Churches, and Ministries
since 1995. We plan to enhance the Christian Resources available
on HIS-Net by:
1) Publishing the HIS-Net Christian Newsletter weekly
2) Cleaning up the database to assure fewer "dead end" clicks
3) Adding exciting new categories to HIS-Net, including Drama & Expanded Business Listings
4) Bringing back 'Featured Site Of The Week', 'Ministry Of The Week' & HIS-Net WebResource
5) Hosting monthly contests (contact us if you have an idea or giveaway)
6) Moving to a faster high-speed server
7) Offering comprehensive, affordable Christian WebSite Hosting

The mission of HIS-Net remains the same:
We want to help Christians, churches and ministries spread the Word and share
their ministries using the World Wide Web. Our vision is to help believers
'stake a claim for Jesus on the Internet' and lead unbelievers to Christ.

Have a blessed week, and until next time, may the Lord richly
bless you and your ministries. Please pass this newsletter on
to a friend.

Christian Network web site. HIS-Net receives nearly 1,500 visitors/day;

Another reason to celebrate....

The HIS-Net Christian Newsletter is one year old! The first issue was
published on April 12, 1997, and we now have over 2,500 subscribers!
In honor of this momentous occasion, we have compiled an archive of all
the previous issues of the newsletter. Volume I is now available online at
http://www.HIS-Net.com/archive/index.html
Stop by and see how we've progressed, especially if you're a new subscriber!

Submitting your URL for listing in the search engines ONCE brings traffic
to your site, but the traffic quickly drops after a few weeks. You need to RESUBMIT
periodically. To get the word out about your web site to more places and for less
money, including automatic quarterly resubmissions, visit TrafficBoost at:
http://TrafficBoost.Com/?word.net

Each week, one ministry listed in the HIS-Net Christian
Resources Directory will be selected as our MINISTRY OF THE
WEEK. Please visit their web site and take a few seconds to
pray over this ministry. Ask the Lord to strengthen those
involved in His work and to protect them from the enemy.

This week's MINISTRY OF THE WEEK is:



Mililani Baptist Church
http://www.pixi.com/~mysc/mbc.html
HIS-Net Category: http://www.HIS-Net.com/html/baptist.html

"Aloha and welcome to the Mililani Baptist Church Home Page.

* F E A T U R E D W E B S I T E O F T H E W E E K *

Each week, we will select our FEATURED WEB SITE OF THE WEEK.
Each web site is selected because of its unique and different
uses of web technology. It might have sound. It might have
neat graphics. It might have interesting interactive features.
It probably has an artistic flair to it. It has something that
we thought was above the average web site. And the best thing
is... it's a Christian web site !!

As long as you have a web site listed on HIS-Net, you qualify
each week. Don't have your site listed yet? Go right now to

URGENT -----
Alabama Needs Your Help After Being Hit By A Major Tornado

The body of Christ located near Birmingham, Alabama needs your help.
A major tornado hit our area (4-8-98) killing 33 people and leaving
1,023 without homes, cars, or possessions. Four churches were
demolished, one school was totally destroyed, and much destruction
has taken place. The people of Alabama need your prayers and help.

Many people are without homes. Some of these people have insurance,
many of them do not. Even the ones that have insurance have to wait
until they can get financial relief and they are totally without
anything except for the clothes on their backs.

Please consider asking your church to take up a special offering for the
many people in Alabama without homes. They can send the money to
Fellowship West Church. We will be sure that needy families and churches
will receive the money promptly.

Fellowship West Church
Jimmy Carrier - Pastor
201 Florence Street
Hueytown, Al. 35023
Please put a note in the envelope specifying that the money is for Tornado Victims.

A receipt will be sent to you for your tax records. This is a tax-deductable contribution.

Thank you very much for your help!

[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 HIS 'net.]

that looks like it would be of interest to others on our mailing list,
we add it to the New Sites On HIS-Net section in this Newsletter.

These are not necessarily the best or top web sites we've seen. We
don't provide a review of the web site. We just list those which we
think might be of interest. Please do not email back requesting to be
added in the Newsletter. Please submit your web site first at the
Submit URL page.

We don't list Commercial/Business web sites in the New Sites On HIS-Net
