On May 28, 2024, Epoch Studios is screening their first ever film, “The Firing Squad,” in Phoenix, AZ. Select local faith and community leaders, as well as members of the media and other guests, will have the opportunity to preview the powerful story of redemption ahead of the nationwide release on August 2, 2024.

Based on a profound true story of finding hope in the face of death, celebrated Christian filmmaker Tim Chey’s “The Firing Squad” follows the story of three convicted criminals who were sentenced to be executed by firing squad in an Indonesian prison camp in 2015. As the countdown to their deaths begins, a remarkable sequence of events unfolds, which drew international attention to the transformative power of faith and hope that transcends our darkest moments. 

“The Firing Squad” promises a thought-provoking cinematic experience, starring prominent actor Kevin Sorbo (“God’s Not Dead” and “Let There Be Light”) alongside breakout star James Barrington. Talent is available for Phoenix area interviews in conjunction with the May 28, 2024 screening. A trailer of the film is available for viewing at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PSsOE7WwsZ8

“At its core, this film is a story of courage, resilience and the transformative power of salvation through Jesus Christ,” said Chey. “I’m an evangelist first and a filmmaker second. Beyond mere entertainment, I pray the film will serve as a catalyst for introspection, compelling audiences to embrace the grace and love of Jesus Christ.”

The creators of the film want to see it win 1 million souls to Christ.

Sorbo, a vocal advocate for family friendly entertainment, has emphasized the importance of supporting faith-based projects like The Firing Squad. 

“In today’s entertainment landscape, it’s crucial that we rally behind projects that uphold Christian values and share stories of faith,” said Sorbo. “We have a battle to win in Hollywood. Films like this are powerful tools for spreading messages of hope and inspiration.”

Pursuit Church Announces ‘United for Israel’ Rally at the University of Washington
Pro-Israel March

Interfaith Rally

The Pursuit NW, under the leadership of Pastor Russell Johnson, is proud to announce its continued commitment to advocating for Israel with the upcoming “United for Israel” rally at the University of Washington on Sunday, May 12th, 2024, at 4:30 p.m. The rally will start at Red Square, with a march through the campus and will conclude at the Pursuit Seattle campus located on UW’s frat row.

Pastor Russell spearheaded the impactful University of Washington march, which convened shortly after the October 7th attacks on Israel. The Seattle event, in collaboration with StandWithUs and Oregon for Israel, featured distinguished guest speaker Mosab Hassan Yousef, renowned for his courageous stance as the “Son of Hamas.”

He went on to direct the recent Pro-Israel rallies at Columbia University and the University of Southern California in collaboration with Sean Feucht, Let Us Worship, Hold the Line, StandWithUs, and various Jewish and Christian groups. The resoundingly successful events drew thousands of attendees representing various faiths. Since the events, the organization has been inundated with requests for similar initiatives to counter the alarming rise of antisemitism on college campuses across America.

Pastor Russell brings a wealth of experience and passion to Pro-Israel initiatives and is excited to return to his home base in Seattle, where the initiative first came to fruition. The Pursuit aims to provide a platform for the majority voice in America amidst media portrayals influenced by minority extremist perspectives. Pastor Johnson emphasizes the rally’s focus on essential issues, including Israel’s right to self-defense, the immediate release of all remaining hostages, and the restoration of lasting peace in the region.

About:

The Pursuit, based in Washington state, is a non-denominational church across multiple campuses, including Seattle, Kirkland, Snohomish, and an online presence. The church’s mission centers on glorifying Jesus and bringing people into an encounter with the presence of God. It’s no coincidence that their Seattle Campus is on the University of Washington’s Frat Row.

Freyja HealthCare’s VereSee™ Device Receives 510(k) Clearance, the First of Many Products

Freyja HealthCare’s VereSee™ Device Receives 510(k) Clearance, the First of Many Products

Freyja Healthcare Brings First-of-Its-Kind 2mm Abdominal-Access Device to Laparoscopic Surgery to Further Innovation in Fast-Growing Women’s Health Market

Freyja Healthcare, an early-stage medical device company focused on developing a robust product portfolio of highly innovative products for women’s health, today announced that its novel VereSee device received 510(k) clearance from the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Clearance from the FDA marks a critical step in enabling Freyja and VereSee — the first and only 2mm, safe abdominal-access video-entry device for laparoscopic surgery — to bring further innovation in the fast-growing women’s health market.  VereSee will reinvigorate a category that has not seen innovation in over three decades.

Founded by Jón Ívar Einarsson, MD, PhD, MPH, and Gaby Moawad, MD, FACOG, Freyja’s mission is to raise the standard of women’s health in both surgical and in-office procedures, enabling physicians to deliver safe and effective care. As the company’s first novel product, the VereSee device features a proprietary design engineered to be simple for the surgeon, safe for the patient, and highly differentiated from the current standard of care. The company now has four products in advanced stages of development, 17 granted patents and 21 pending patents.

“From the beginning, I’ve been impressed with Freyja’s mission to improve gynecologic solutions for women and the providers who take care of them. With this first product, Freyja is bringing  meaningful innovation to a category ready for change,” said Kim Rodriguez, longtime Freyja Executive Chairman and former CEO of Acessa Health. 

There are 4.8 million laparoscopic surgeries performed annually in the United States. Abdominal entry is the most dangerous step of laparoscopic and robotic surgery in women’s health, and in all laparoscopic surgery across all specialty areas. This dangerous step results in one patient death and eight injuries in the U.S. each day[1].

“The standard of care is dangerous and outdated. Initial entry is often done blindly with Veres needles or a 5-12mm optical trocar,” said Jón Ívar Einarsson, MD, co-founder and interim CEO of Freyja. “Damaging the bowel or vasculature because of blind entry can cause significant harm, even death, if undetected.” 

As a part of the FDA clearance process, Freyja performed extensive testing and documentation of the safety and efficacy of the product, validating the company’s confidence in the design of its VereSee product. 

“FDA clearance has been a long process for us, and we know that this is one of the largest barriers to entry for new products in this category,” said Gaby Moawad, MD, co-founder and Board Director of Freyja. “However, we understand the importance of these devices being held to the highest standards of safety and quality. We are proud of the work our team has done to reach this milestone for Freyja.”

Freyja will soon begin initial commercialization of the VereSee device, with broad availability expected in the second half of 2024.

About Freyja Healthcare 

Freyja Healthcare was founded in 2017, has four products in advanced stages of development, 17 granted patents and 21 pending patents, and is engineering a robust product portfolio focused on safe and effective surgical and in-office solutions for women. Founded by two well-respected, minimally invasive gynecologic surgeons, Jón Ívar Einarsson, MD, PhD, MPH, Past-President of AAGL, founder of the Division of Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery (MIGS) at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) and a Professor of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive Biology at Harvard Medical School, and Gaby Moawad, MD, FACOG, Associate Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at The George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences (GWSMHS). Drs. Einarsson and Moawad are inventing and building the products they wish they had early in their careers and elevating the standards for products used in women’s health surgical and in-office care. Freyja has raised almost $8 million in seed funding from private and professional high net-worth investors. Learn more at Freyja Healthcare.
