Ariel returns from Starkville, Mississippi after a tremendous evangelism outreach illusion show!

Not only did we do three illusion shows with a message Friday, Saturday and Sunday (Sept. 6-8), but I also spoke and did various illusions in two chapels with small children and high school students where I also shared God's message of grace and salvation.

I was also invited to speak at a men's meeting where pastors, leaders and men from the community attend. After a wonderful Asian lunch I did an illusion and shared (from John 8:30-33) regarding the distinction between how one is freed from the penalty of sin by simply believing in Jesus and how one can continue to experience that freedom by "abiding" (following) Jesus everyday in discipleship.

Furthermore, I was also invited to be on WCBI a CBS local affiliate of Starkville, MS (click here for a photo gallery - part of that which was taken by one of the camera men—as a favor to me—with my i-phone).

I also taught at Emmanuel Baptist Church Sunday school (by having a Q & A time) preached in worship service.

Thanks for your prayers. Please consider supporting our ministry and partner with us (click here).

(click here for a photo gallery) We're planning for the next shows already. If you have a church that would like to have us come and do an illusion show/program outreach let us know.

Jesus Family Tomb Examined

Only $9.99!

See all endorsements <click here>

Those who enjoy reading mysteries will enjoy this book’s exposure of the real conspiracy involved in Cameron’s “documentary.”


—Craig S. Keener, Ph.D.,

Author of countless books, and

Professor of New Testament

Palmer Seminary



René López gives the Jesus family tomb theory the thorough debunking it so richly deserves. He points out countless errors and lapses in logic on the part Simcha Jacobovici and his associates, who have foisted on a naive public and gullible media a highly implausible scenario. Critical scholars and laity alike are appalled by this travesty. The Jesus Family Tomb Examined will go a long way toward setting the record



—Craig A. Evans, Ph.D.

Payzant Distinguished Professor

of New Testament at Acadia Divinity College



René López’s work skillfully dismantles point

by point the arguments made by these advocates and shows cogently how Jesus’ tomb continues to remain empty, because He rose physically. I wholeheartedly recommend this work.


—Josh D. McDowell

International Author and Speaker
