Last night Darryl and I took his brother and his father to the Under God Indivisible Conference at the High Point Church in Arlington, Texas. This event was billed as a day of renewed focus on Faith, Family, and Freedom in America.
The evening began with the Phillips, Craig and Dean Concert. We were then treated to some dynamic speakers with a call for spiritual awakening.
Here are some of our favorite speakers of the evening.

Rev. Samuel Rodriguez who was so amazing that he got THREE standing ovations. CNN named Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, “The leader of the Hispanic Evangelical movement”. The Wall St. Journal identified him as one of America’s 7 most influential Hispanic Leaders, and the only religious leader on the list.

The most quoted line of scripture last night was 2 Chrronicles 7:14: "If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will hear their land. (KJV)." If you believe the government is out of control, and it is, then step on is to turn to God.
