shown me that there is a great spiritual battle raging over America. I
love and honor America, a Christian nation. In this newsletter I hope
and pray that the facts I share will cause your hearts to fall more

February celebrates America!
President's day is February 20th. George Washington's birthday is
February 22nd. Abraham Lincoln's birthday is February 12th. Pray for our
Presidents. Christopher Columbus originally came to America to proclaim
the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The year was 1492. In that same year
Columbus sailed from Spain to America to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus
Christ. This is a little known fact that is left out of American history
In 1630 Governor John Winthrop
fled England in search of religious freedom. He was Governor of the
Massachusetts Bay Colony from 1630 to 1644. His famous speech in 1630
laid the first biblical and Christ centered foundation in America. In
1814 Francis Scott Key composed the "Star Spangled Banner." This
patriotic song became our official national anthem in 1931 by an act of
Congress. Francis Scott Key's song became a vital part of American
history. "Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just, and this be
our motto, in God we trust."
The Pledge of Allegiance to our
flag was first composed by Frank Belamy in 1892. In 1954 "One Nation
under God" was added to the Pledge of Allegiance by congressman Louis-Rabaut.
"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to
the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God with
liberty and justice for all."
There were many great moments in
American history and many great heroes. Fanny Crosby was an American
hero who changed the course of church and American history. Mrs. Crosby
wrote over 9,000 Christian songs and hymns. She was born March 24th,
1820 in Putnam county, New York. She became blind at six weeks of age
and remained blind for the rest of her life. One of her most well known
songs is "Blessed Assurance Jesus is Mine." December the 15th, 1791 the
first Amendment to the Constitution guaranteed every American the right
to 1. Freedom of Speech, 2. Freedom of Religion, 3. Freedom of the
Press, 4. Freedom of Assembly, and 5. Freedom of Petition.
The States in America declare
the glory of God. Florida's state motto is "In God we Trust." This was
adopted in 1868. The Ohio state motto is "With God all things are
Possible." This was adopted in 1959 and is taken from Matthew 19:26.
Arizona's state motto is "God Enriches." This was adopted by Richard
McCormick in 1864. South Dakota's motto which is "Under God the People
Rule" was adopted in 1885 by Dr. Joseph Ward.
America was founded as a
Christian Nation. Our Forefathers proclaimed Jesus Christ as the
foundation of America. President George Washington said "to the
distinguished character of a patriot, it should be the our highest glory
to add the more distinguished character of Christian." - Valley Forge -
May 2nd, 1779. "What students would learn above all else is the religion
of Jesus Christ." (1779) Patrick Henry (the symbol of our American
Revolution) said "It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that
this great Nation was founded not by religionists but by Christians. Not
on religions but on the Gospels of Jesus Christ." --

Praise the Lord! The record was broken for our Christian
sign holding ministry on December the 7th. A record 814 cars honked for
Jesus at the intersection of Route 19 and Northcliffe Blvd. in Spring
Hill, Florida! 8 wonderful Christians carried 8 Christian message themed
signs giving God much glory. We honor and give special thanks to John
Simmons, Lori Allen, Billy Allen, Grace Allen, Sam Castrell, Joseph
Lake, Theodore Robinson and Jonathan Studer. Pray that the Lord blesses
them richly for standing for over 3 hours in the wind, dust and heavy
traffic to give Jesus praise.
Our Christian sign holding
ministry wants YOU! If you want to join us in
holding up Christian signs on Wednesday morning call Jonathan at 352-428-7612.
The signs carry such messages as: "Honk if you Love Jesus", "Smile God Loves
You", and "Accept Jesus as Your Savior." It is a great joy to be
able to hold signs that point the way to Jesus Christ. It is a privilege and an
honor to be able to lift up the holy Name of Jesus and we want anyone who will
to join us in doing so.
Kim Howe and
children Grace, Nathanael, and Sarah came out to join us in holding
signs for Jesus on December 28th. Along with them there was Lori Allen,
Linda Pampanet, John Simmons, Joseph Lake and Jonathan Studer for a
record of nine people who held up the Name of Jesus! This was a record
number of sign holders for a single day, praise the Lord!
