One of the nurses I work with told me about a couple of schools in our district that needed coats for their students. Tori and I went to Walmart at midnight (very interesting characters at that time of night…LOL) to get large boxes. We decorated them with large signs and bright colors. Jordan and I went to my job to set the boxes up at covenient drop off sites. Then we waited. We decided to have the drive for two weeks. We picked up the boxes, and did our final count. 53 coats, 16 sweatshirts and 4 sweaters were donated! I had asked for gentley used jackets, many people bought brand new ones. It was so amazing to see so many people give for this cause. I could not take my kids along to drop off the jackets because they had winter exams and could not miss school. I really wanted them to see the final and most important step of giving. There is nothing like seeing the joy on others faces and knowing that today, we made a difference. Thanks soooooo much to everyone who participated!

Deroot the religious spirit from our country. Bind up and destroy the spirit of white supremacy. Holy Spirit breath into the dry bones and raise them up for such a time as this. “Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe on these slain, that they come to life." Peel off the coverings over our eyes. Let us see, hear and respond like you God. Let the world know we are Yours by our actions. Let the true image bearers shine light in every corner of this country. Bring down the prideful. Raise up the humble. We have heard what our ancestors say about you. Do among us as you did among them. I plead the blood of Jesus over every idol upheld by the American church. Let your fire fall from the heavens and cast them down. Enough of their dominance among your people. They are no longer welcome here in Jesus name. Cast their earthy thrones down God. Let the heavens open, shake the earths foundation, until your church puts away their earthly agendas and looks back to you. Do whatever it takes. Amen #prayer
