      Hi Folks,

      Apologetic Index is moving to a new server. While Gospelcom has been a
      wonderful and gracious host, our move to a new web site hosting company will
      enable Apologetics Index to expand in a number of areas. For example, later on
      this year we expect to add online forums, streaming audio (of apologetics &
      countercult related material), and possibly an interactive news publishing
      system.

      The web site move, expected to occur within the next two weeks, has been much
      prayed over. Janet and I have also consulted a number of fellow Christians, and
      have taken their wise counsel into account.

      The move itself should, for the most part, be transparent and relatively
      trouble-free.

      That said, here's how you can help us:


      === LINK UPDATES

      There *will* be an important LINK change. Currently, whenever you type the
      http://www.apologeticsindex.org url into your browser, the address rolls over
      into http://www.gospelcom.net/apologeticsindex/(+ the name of the page you are
      visiting). Therefore, countless people have the gospelcom.net/apologeticsindex
      URL bookmarked, instead of the site's real address: apologeticsindex.org

      Gospelcom will redirect visitors for a period of 4 months (twice their normal
      forwarding period), which will give search engines and web masters the time to
      find the new Apologetics Index URLs.

      NOTE: If your web site currently links to Apologetics Index, please change the
      URL(s) immediately as follows:

      Old Link:
      http://www.gospelcom.net/apologeticsindex/(+ the name of the page, in case you
      are deep-linking. Ex: http: http://www.gospelcom.net/apologeticsindex/s48.html)

      New Link:
      http://www.apologeticsindex.org/(+ the name of the page, in case you are
      deep-linking. Ex: http: http://www.apologeticsindex.org/s48.html)


      If you are linking to Religion News Blog, or to an article in Religion News
      Blog, follow the same procedure, except with these links:

      Old Link:
      http://www.gospelcom.net/apologeticsindex/rnb(+ the name of the page, in case
      you are deep-linking. Ex:
      http://www.gospelcom.net/apologeticsindex/rnb/archives/00003651.html)

      New Link:
      http://www.religionnewsblog.com/(+ the name of the page, in case you are
      deep-linking. Ex: http: http://www.religionnewsblog.com/archives/00003651.html)

      Your updated URLs will help search engines and others to find, index and/or
      bookmark the new site.


      === Email

      Our primary email address will remain: ahein@...
      If your email gets bounced during the transfer period, use ahein@...
      instead. You can also reach me via Yahoo Messenger at ID: aheinholland
      (Free Messenger: http://messenger.yahoo.com/)


      === Financial Support

      Our new web site host is relatively inexpensive. However, the actual move
      entails some initial costs (mostly one-time set-up fees for our 16 domain names)
      that we would appreciate help with. If you would like to make a donation, please
      follow this link:
      http://tinyurl.com/bqqh#donation

      Once the new site is housebroken, some of the additions we have in mind will
      also bring with them extra costs (e.g. the purchase of a professional online
      forum package), and possibly some extra file space for the streaming content we
      have in mind.


      === Prayer

      Over the past few months Janet and I have seen a big increase in the number of
      people who contact us via the web site with anything from requests for
      information to serious counseling needs. In addition, information from the site
      is used in many of our personal counseling appointments with current and former
      members of various religions, cults, sects, and abusive churches.

      We appreciate your prayers! If you would like to receive our ministry email
      newsletter (mailed about once every six weeks), please ask for it by writing me
      directly: ahein@...

      Blessings,

      Anton and Janet
