URGENT PLEA: Following Paul's latest
health scare, my two youngest children in California are desperately trying
to find a way to get home to see their father one last time before it grows too late.
They have raised over half the cost, but are falling short and time is of the essence.
If you are able to contribute any amount, no matter how great or small, our family would be eternally grateful. Thank you so much.

From My Friend, Daniel, of UT - 07/03/16:
“I am convinced that if we are to continue to have the freedoms which
came of the inspiration of the almighty to our founding fathers, we must
return to the god who is their true author. We need to worship Him in
spirit and in truth. We need to acknowledge His all-powerful hand. We
need to humble ourselves before Him and seek His guidance in all that
concerns matters of state.”
