Herbert W. Armstrong founded the Worldwide Church of God in the late 1930s, as well as Ambassador College in 1946, and was an early pioneer of radio and tele-evangelism, originally taking to the airwaves in the 1930s from Eugene, Oregon.

Here is an inside look at Ethiopia from a former high official in the Ethiopian government. Getachew Mekasha was Ethiopia's ambassador to Egypt until his resignation in March. He was previously ambassador to Kenya and India. Now a professor of political science and history at Ambassador College in Pasadena, California, he is presently writing a book which will detail the late Emperor Haile Selassie's rule of over fifty years. PLAIN TRUTH: You have said that the military leaders now running Ethiopia make Uganda's Idi Amin "look like a nice guy." What have they been doing? AMBASSADOR MEKASHA: Hardly a week passes without news of some sort of alarming excesses and atrocities committed by the brutal military regime now in power in Ethiopia. There are today over 30,000 political prisoners in the country and over 5,000 persons have been executed without trial.
