|Dear Friends in Christ,
Welcome to the inaugural Newsletter of the 'Touch Of Heaven'.
From time to time we propose to keep you informed of the progress
of Alan Ames Ministry, as Alan travels the world telling people
own conversion and preaching the message of God's love.
He began his ministry at the beginning of 1995; since then a
of his books have been published in English and German.
On 7th July 1997 Archbishop Hickey in a letter to Alan's spiritual
wrote: "Alan may continue to speak about his conversion and
his healing ministry, both of which appear to be of great benefit
He will convey to his listeners that no Church approval has
been given for
the authenticity of his cures or his messages, as they have
submitted formally to Church authorities for investigation.
We would both (the Archbishop and Alan - Ed) be grateful
if you could
continue as Alan's spiritual director."
The editor hopes that the following pages will prove edifying
spiritually beneficial to the reader.

An extract from the Jerusalem Post, October 29 1997
"People believe they can't change the world, that what they
do will have no effect,
but that is not true," said Alan Ames, an author and healer
from Perth, Australia,...
"If people think that way and do nothing, nothing will change.
But if each individual
decides to stand up to be counted for peace and love, things
Some messages received by Alan during October 1997 in other countries
Two Messages from the Father
In the Philippines
Poverty abounds and so does greed.
Poverty ignored is greed appeased.
Poverty for some means plenty for others,
A large sin upon the world
is the poverty that is forced
upon so many so that the greedy
can appease their insatiable appetites.
A sin that will bring many to
account on their final day.
Reference: Psalm 146:4
When they breathe their last
they return to the earth.
Israel, land of hope, land of the prophets, land of God.
Israel, land of confusion, land of hate, land of sadness.
Israel, land that felt the touch of Jesus' feet,
Jesus' love and Jesus' blood.
A land where the victory was won and yet still
the battle rages because men do not accept the truth.
When the truth is embraced in this land,
the hope of the future will be found and Jesus
will be proclaimed as Lord.
Reference: Psalm 40:4
They shall look on in awe and
they shall trust in the Lord.
||Through the Sacred Heart - A message from Jesus
When an evil is removed from a country, unless it is replaced
by goodness, another evil
will take its place. In Russia one evil was defeated but goodness
was not embraced, and
so evil returned. The prayers for Russia today are the same
as when it was under the
yoke of communism. Russia needs prayers for its conversion and
prayers that the heart
of the people will embrace goodness. Today Russia calls out
for prayers. Answer that
call and help peace reign in this great land. Reference:
Luke 1:21 - Meanwhile the people were waiting.
||The Saints speak - A message from St Joachim
A daughter of Israel responded with a 'Yes' to her Lord, a 'Yes'
that would change
the world forever.
A daughter of Israel responded with a complete acceptance of
God's Will in her life.
A daughter of Israel responded with a pure love that would shine
Mary, a perfect example of how to love God and how to be submissive
to God's Will.
Mary, a perfect example of humanity,

and His Will is done.

Through the Immaculate Heart
- A Message from Our Mother
Every land on earth deserves salvation,
for every land is created by and
loved by God.
Every person on earth is equal in
God's eyes and is deserving of His
love if he seeks it.
Every nation on earth needs to
hear the message of salvation and
deserves the opportunity to be saved.
This is the truth of Jesus, the
truth the world needs to hear.
Reference: Psalm 18:50 -
Thus I will proclaim you Lord
among the nations.
From Our Lady for Christmas
A child was born in Bethlehem,
a child of Love.
A child was born in Bethlehem,
a child who is Love.
A child was born in Bethlehem,
a child who is God.
|The Saints speak - A message from St Ignatius
The soldiers of Jesus came to this land to spread the faith.
They shed their blood
to fertilize the soil with the graces of God, and with the love
of God as their
strength they gave their all. The example they set to Japan
and the world was one
of an undying love, even though their bodies would die their
love would not. The
example they set the world was that Jesus was King of All Nations,
and that All
Nations could be in His Kingdom of love. The soldiers of Jesus
who died for
God's glory call out to the faithful today to become the new
army of God, an
army of undying love, undying service, and undying sacrifices
for the glory of
God. Listen to the call and answer it to become Saints in Heaven.
Reference: Sirach 47:8 - To lead the people
into their inheritence.
