50 Prolife activists swarm the little town of Jackson Hole Day 4

Today, Friday, our last day. I was filed with mixed emotions. I didn't want to leave but missed home and my family. I was truly having the time of my life and made some great friends some who agree with uis and even some who didn't. I got email addresses and phone numbers and requersts for Facebook.

If I remember Friday correctly, it was like days before, cold mornings, we began at the school, left before the youngsters arrived, had breakfast and hit the streets again, where we were till 5PM. Coach and I had to leave back to Idaho later today so our trip was cut short but we stayed as long as we could. The PA went up, signs, banners, bull horns, it was all out!
The week progressed with unrelenting gradual intensity from both sides, although we did the same things with smiles on our faces, reaching out and conversing with others, still having people come up to us, some people were adamant about having this stopped and they would do anything even trying to hit us with their vehicles as one man was arrested for this attempt!

I was a bit discouraged when I saw the Sheriff and the local officials had decided to pull the sound permit and reduce our liberty of free speech to a decibel meter! I began questioning their understanding of the constitution but since they had never seen anything like this before, I’m pretty sure they did the best they could at the drop of a hat, caught between a rock and hard place. Basically we had to remain under 80db, which interestingly enough is less than a car horn or someone screaming from a car window, so they tried to get us to shut down and they monitored us all day. They threatened that if we exceeded the maximum we would be jailed! The restrictions continued until the rest of the group left long after we were gone.
A local businessman ran angrily across the street and looked like he was going to punch Flip, yelling at him and telling him he didn’t want to hear Jesus music again all day, Flip stood for a moment and smiled, as only Flip could do, and said Jesus loves you! You know that made him mad. A cop came pulled him away, calmed him down and brought him back and Flip and the man spoke for several minutes and went back to his business.This local businessman I think was the same one that activated his PA earlier that day and said as we arrived the following morning, “Are you ready to party!?”

At this point we knew our trip was coming to an end, we worshipped the Lord there, on the streets, loud and free. We asked the Lord to come into the hearts and minds of these people and to heal their town, the abortion and the suicide rate in young people as we found out was at the rate of ONE A MONTH! We prayed and again went into worship.

As other pastors in the group took over the microphone, they all began to preach their own message and all went into song, Bruce, I think was his name, sang a rather sad song about why they kill their babies in Jackson Hole but would stand and fight the abuse of a buffalo.

So, Coach was doing radio interviews on his laptop in my truck with both fellow Christians but also with those who opposed us, Flip, Ante, Butch, Chet, Marilyn, Shelly and others were preaching , standing worshipping and communicating with others. By this time this town was upside down! The people were filling the sidewalks, people running across the four lane street (allowed there by law as law enforcement looked on) and not one fight. People were angry, sure but there were also by this time people who actually enjoyed the fact that we were there although, admittedly, they were the clear minority.

Everyone broke for lunch and Coach and I had departed Jackson Hole, Wyoming, where to my surprise before getting in my truck I broke down and wept. This feeling had caught me by surprise because it was so intense, the thought of leaving a town that, after only a few days, I had come to love in such a strange way. As we left, we knew things would never be the same, because we were the messengers, we came with a message that was given to us by the Lord to take that message and deliver it to Jackson Hole, and to know that in doing so, that it would not return void and it hasn’t.

After getting Coach back on his plane home, the email news alerts began. The group had decided the next day to go into the public square where they had an antler event and pass out literature, they were immediately barricaded from entering and began, at that point, to preach where to everyone’s surprise Chet and Mark were arrested. The Cops finally got their criminals, those Jesus preaching, freedom of speech loving, military retired, freedom fighting, family sacrificing, law enforcement retired, Christian patriots! They should be proud, they got there men!

Of course, Chet and Mark will have to come back to Jackson to stand before the magistrate but what happens when two or more agree gathered, they knew it was all in God’s hands.
If any of you have read down this far and you are encouraged by what you have read, Please do what you can to become active in your community, whether it is political, religious, or otherwise because the repercussions of doing nothing will result in the complete loss of your freedom and eternally set apart from God suffering not freedom and joy but wrath and judgment.

If you have no one to contact, contact me. This event was the most life changing event I have ever attended and they are available to attend all year long all across the country!
You will never find better men and women anywhere! People who are strong in their faith and conviction, they are grounded, they are loving to ALL people, they are funny and they are family…my family! I am so proud to stand with them, to be part of their family and I would do anything I could for any one of them. Does your church experience love like that?

Warning to followers of Christ:

Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves; so be wise as serpents and innocent as doves. 17 Beware of men; for they will deliver you up to councils, and flog you in their synagogues, 18 and you will be dragged before governors and kings for my sake, to bear testimony before them and the Gentiles. 19 When they deliver you up, do not be anxious how you are to speak or what you are to say; for what you are to say will be given to you in that hour; 20 for it is not you who speak, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you. Matthew 10:16-20...

To my good friends and fellow warriors for Christ, May God bless all of you as we do His work! Thank you my friends, you are truly the best!
Blessings, glory and honor to all,
