Hello, everyone, as summer turns into fall, our presidential election is getting very close. Perhaps you are weary with all the campaign adds, campaign flyers, yard signs, etc. My friends, I'm ready to elect the next president of the United States, John S. McCain! But, before we start the celebrations, we need to remember that God holds the key.
I believe that we need to pray. Not only for the election, but for our country in general. It just seems there is so much wickedness all around. So many people live as if there is no God, and no judgment. We need to pray that God's will might be done in this election. I know what I want God's will to be, but maybe He has other ideas. My hope and prayer is that God will have mercy on us. Just as Abraham prayed for God to have mercy on Sodom and Gomorrah, I hope that He will have mercy on us. America has been Israel's friend, and God used our former president, Harry S. Truman, as an instrument to help in the establishment of the nation of Israel. Then, there are the many missionaries who have gone out from America to spread the Gospel. There is the American Bible Society and the Gideons who are laboring from America, to spread copies of the Bible around the world. There have been many times, when America has stepped in to help others with financial and material gifts. May God have mercy on us.

Greetings, everyone!!! What a tremendous day! Last night, I found out that John McCain and Sarah Palin would be in Lee's Summit, MO this morning. My brother and his two girls, my mom, and my grandma and her husband and myself made out way over into Missouri to the John Knox Village where the rally was to be held. We also met up with my Uncle Vernon and his wife Joan. We stood in line forever, and finally ended up in an overflow area outside as the building was filling up! You talk about excitement! People were pumped up! We got within 50 feet of McCain and Sarah. It was really nice, because they stopped outside and briefly greeted us and shook some hands before going into the auditorium. The crowd hollered and carried on. There were probably upwards of 4,000 people all total including the people inside and out. As you scroll down, you will also see a picture of Carl Cameron from Fox News. Enjoy! And don't forget to vote! (just make sure you vote for the right ticket!)
