Thank you to my family and friends for your prayers and well wishes, calls and visits. I’ve very sick with a blood infection for a couple of weeks and was in the hospital for a week. I am home now and will continue my treatment for the infection at home for the next five weeks. I serve a great God and He brought me through a storm that nearly took me out. Keep praying and I love you all.

The proclamation reaches the South where a family of slaves receives news of their emancipation.

The proclamation reaches the South where a family of slaves receives news of their emancipation.


There is a common misconception among Americans that Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves with a stroke of his pen. Yet the Emancipation Proclamation, which went into effect on Jan. 1, 1863, did no such thing — or, at least, it didn't do a very good job of it. Two and a half years later, on June 19, 1865, Union soldiers sailed into Galveston, Texas, announced the end of the Civil War, and read aloud a general order freeing the quarter-million slaves residing in the state. It was truly a day of mass emancipation. It has become known as Juneteenth.

Memorial Day in the United States of America

As our country celebrates Memorial Day and those who sacrificed their lives for our freedom, let us thank God for His blessings upon our country:
Our freedom to worship our God without persecution
Our ability to evangelize and help with missions in other countries
Our privilege to participate in national prayer and celebrate our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ
The availability of knowledge and wisdom to us concerning our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ and the Kingdom of Heaven
