Dr. Ben Carson Visits Ambassador Book Signing

posted on

Our sincere thanks to Presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson for taking the time to visit with Ambassador author Chuck Doan recently during his book signing of his newly released memoir Sand in Their Eyes. In his official statement released this week Dr. Carson said, “We must not depart from our goals to restore what God and our Founders intended for this exceptional nation.

Ben CarsonAs a refugee from Vietnam Chuck Doan came to America because it truly was a place that offered a freedom he couldn’t experience in Vietnam. As a teenager in the 1980s Doan embarked on a two-year journey to escape communist Vietnam. Facing imprisonment, starvation and extreme poverty, Chuck and his family must escape communist Vietnam or die in the attempt. His new book “Sand in Their Eyes” is the incredible true story of his search for freedom.

Packed in a tiny boat, hoping to escape Vietnam Chuck and his family battled starvation, dehydration and crippling fear night after night. “No food. No water. Just salt. That’s all we had left: Sand in Their Eyesthe breath in our lungs and the salt on our skin,” writes Chuck.

Finally they encountered some fishermen who gave them food and water, but would not take them to the safety of Thailand because the country was no longer welcoming refugees. Even after their tiny boat made it to the shore of Thailand, armed officers forced them back out into the water leaving them with only one option: sink their boat and swim back to shore in the dead of night.

99¢ SALE: One Day Only!

Feeling discontent? Dissatisfied? Unfulfilled? No matter how many small groups you’re in, Bible studies you sign up for or brownies you bake for the church potluck, you won’t find satisfaction and purpose until fill the emptiness of life with Christ. Lisa Arnold’s book Chaos to Calm: Fulfilling Life’s Purpose Through Worship is just 99¢ today only. After Thursday the price will go up to $2.99 through the weekend, and then it will return to regular price. So don’t wait- pick up this book now for your Kindle!

ChaosCalmSynopsis: Chaos to Calm: Fulfilling Life’s Purpose Through Worship is a guiding light for those who are searching and disillusioned in their lack of fulfillment and purpose in life. It seeks to lead the discontented, dissatisfied, and unfulfilled down the only life-fulfilling passageway. A passageway leading to the only true Light and Giver of contentment and purpose—Jesus Christ—the One our hearts were created to worship.

Before true worship can occur, we must first understand what worship is and to whom it is to be offered. Worship is not exclusively a Sunday morning activity. True worship encompasses every aspect of our lives: work, play, and church. Everything we say and do, every minute of every day, is to be offered as our worship. We must also realize that we do not come before a gentle Shepherd, but before the mighty terrifying King of Ezekiel and Revelation. As we see Jesus for who He truly is, we will then begin to “walk in the fear of the Lord.” Only as we see Jesus in His rightful state and walk in the fear of the Lord will we be able to express true worship and experience the fulfillment and purpose our hearts desire.

For the believer, who in the midst of all service and church related activities can find no relief from the discontentment of life, Chaos to Calm offers enlightenment in the knowledge that true contentment will never be ours until we fill the emptiness of our lives with Jesus Christ. Through Him alone were we created to be satisfied. Through Him alone all worship belongs.
