I am writing today as a concerned citizen of the United States of America. God has blessed me with the ability to raise a family here in Umatilla and along with that He has given me an opportunity to serve this great community for almost 8 years now. I, like many of you, am very concerned about the direction that our country is headed.
For years we have been on a downward spiral. Religious liberty is under attack around every corner, lawlessness seems to be normal for some, morality has gone down the drain, and financially our country is BROKE!! I don’t know about you, but I am fed up. Matter of fact, I am fed up with the FED’s. I am fed up with big government trying to tell us how to raise our kids, how to run our businesses, how to use our guns, how and when we can worship, and I am certainly tired of them taking more of our hard earned money to go towards their inflated salaries.
When is it going to stop? When are the American people going to join together to say, “Enough is enough”. I am not talking about a revolution, but I am talking about something that will revolutionize the future for our children and grandchildren. Years ago and even today many men and women have been fighting wars to protect our freedom to live peacefully, to work happily, and to pray openly. Right now all of those freedoms and many more are being ripped away.
Sunday evening at First Baptist Church of Umatilla we had a movie event called “One Generation Away” the erosion of religious liberty. We had about 750 people in attendance that collectively were saying “enough is enough”. This isn’t about being Democrat, Republican, or Independent. This is about being an American that cares about family, faith, and freedom.
Listen up Lake County, America will never change if you wait on someone else to change it for you. The time is now to make a difference in this society and it starts by getting involved. If you want to know more about getting plugged in First Baptist Church of Umatilla is ready to lead the way.
