Creswell it's exciting to have you. We have not met personally that we were connected through a mutual friend. We were both recently at a convention called the National religious broadcasters convention.
Even though we meet there. We were there a mutual friend connected as an and is so funny how God moves because it Heather will get in trouble here. I did not know but you know what I did know your story, but literally like the day before I went to I was driving in RB in and you already know what I remember who I listen to and I heard your story and then a few days later, a friend connected this and is so great out how God does that never want, I want to talk about your company. Before I do that I always like our guest, share their stories, or personal story where our listeners can go to get the know them on a personal level. If you don't mind tell us a little bit about who you are, your family and how God moved in your life. You know I am one of 12 bling. Now I am the really large family in southern New Hampshire and Raytheon Christian mom and dad and we grew up just going to church and learning about God and think I'd be faithful to our family throughout the years and good times and bad times in and watch. A hard worker and for freedom and truth in it for think they believed and at the great foundation and I as I continued to growl around 23 I got married and my mother like a pastor and so not brought it down to Maryland eventually come with our are we at that time we were pregnant with our fourth child, and he took a position down here in Maryland where I currently reside and we were just doing great. I would stay at home mom. I never really gone to college or anything like that I had gotten married and pregnant work at restaurant and ended other things.
But when that was a stay-at-home mom of my life and my kids Craig underground my docket deal and I went on in the market for they started long and then collecting a marketing company only funds technology and I was pregnant at only 40 which kinda shut me. My youngest is 11, 12, and I would like oh my gosh I cannot have anything to get getting easier, but you know like everybody told me like crying for my pregnancy. They said one senior year you will be a politically downtown and tearing up when I got I got here. God knew exactly what we needed.
We had a big gap in our and our family. You know Jan I told her Ken that were in high school and middle school and then we had a newborn and I have been drinking at the time of filing without the crazy time and we know to be waiting to our life anyway. So let's maybe foster or adopt somebody to fill the gap and Zoe that I meant that the proper went to the foster care that year to get some studying everything approved in and then I went away I we finally thought 11 can happen because it taken so long.
I went away on a short visit my mom and my mother-in-law for Christmas that year. That was our gift to each other monotonically as I got the phone comment that I had been approved to be an adoptive parent and that they had five needed to emergency removed from their home because of abuse in the app if I could take them and I like to call my husband home with all I know what he said like column real quick and there's five kids. They wanted to take. I don't know I am not can be open today. Let me know what you decide.
And I don't know much information, back that he called back and I were the guy came home to having five extra kids in my house. I had I pulled into my driveway and all the kids come pouring out of my house at 10-year-old and nine-year-old and eight-year-old six-year-old and a five-year-old and I was like oh I asked God to fill the gap. I should've been a little more epic.
He literally filled the gap but the 15 day placement 25 kids to parent my mother had like 20 down, lock them in closets and peas them in dog poop and and is now in prison for 35 years but the 15 day placement and end up being almost 2 years and I'm telling the story because it was raining time in my life my whole life I would have told you that I love like pizza that I love people that I love God I love serving these 1518 month a lot in me that was not very pretty good fruit that is supposed to be developing in your in your life that love and joy you keep patient patient patient kindness in the April with the control gentlemen on the I'm going wow I'm there not very evident. I would be able time Five, ties kids in those aged ingrained at my house and I would okay God I do that I can't do that.
And God with a line and I learned in the two years. How faithful God was.
What loving looks like that it wasn't you know I knew it wasn't a feeling I like I married. The feeling wasn't always back to the choice that loving, giving up a little bit of what you deserve, or not you deserve to love somebody might not deserve it or not I not act like they deserve it. Use those. I really believe God uses those years in my life to teach me about his faithfulness to teach me get in the door and be faithful because he knew to be doing, we can send out guided me in a couple for funding alternative to go find me, get sent out and the reason we did that was because he said you go funding and become like the big thing on the Feeney ear is when we started a few years prior to that, we think a funny start becoming something we said awesome idea why Christian doing that when someone has a need and everybody gets to it that the we should be doing any Christian alternative in the allotment and self we decided that the platform that doesn't just speak to the needs the financial need, which is important which you know we all find ourselves but with financially throughout life. We know that Christian that is the bigger need hope that only Jesus can Fallon to let the platform where we can let people raise money while we share the hope that we found in Jesus and that we started that platforming. I can see now why God had me go to some of those times in my life to teach me how faithful he was, how to love people who might not be lovable. How to fight what sacrifice looks like what Irving looks like it's amazing how how God uses the things in our life, because he knows what what's coming. It really is� A quick commercial break in the existence of the cofounder of Christian funding organization called Joe so stick around like this show is brought to you by generous jokes.

There is another line 39 years I've been helping relationship. I'd like to invite Ray sharing his strategies to like enjoy American Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated. This date April 4, 1968. He had been pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta and rose to national prominence through the Southern Christian leadership conference awarded the Nobel Prize in 1964, Congress set aside his birthday is a national holiday in 1986. Martin Luther King said I have a dream were little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls and walk together as sisters and brothers. I have a dream that one day the glory of the Lord shall be revealed and all flesh shall see the transcript of all-American limit of one Wesley Mike yesterday that it will put another server story of God is moved in her wife and we jump in your business and talk about gifts and go. I just wanted you or your talking about how you were nearly 40 years old when you had a child. He already had several in Kim that we have in common is well little different. We didn't have kids. My wife and I thought we could have kids over in and it was like 15 years we were married in and just to give up all hope and so we were just like you in the and that we were the age of nearly 40 and scared to death because she got pregnant and you know what that agent is risky. You know you don't know they call it a geriatric pregnancy like I did not like the know, I'm really glad that you already had kids, but for me it was it was good.
In a sense, because we had been married for a long time. You know now and we got to know each other better and we were more stable financially is a lot of things of a new marriage were behind us and yard and I was better tampers with what I was younger. So all day. Don't you know about by the arcuate I came along, so I know that same feeling you had.
I wanted to just take a minute but I don't want to rush over this, but I will talk about your company, but I just want to thank you for being a foster parent that is such a need, not my neighbors. Recently they became foster parents and, similar to your situation calls me a short-term stallion little girl came at her home who came from a terrible situation and I just fell in love with her and they recently adopted in and it such a blessing. And there's a need for that we as Christians constantly tell the world that abortion is wrong and that God doesn't want us to murder. These nearly 63 million innocent babies as a member to abortion since 1973, the United States and we can criticize a lot from the website will give y'all on adopting our yard taking a manifest is not the case anymore. Heather Christians are taking them just like you and your husband did in providing homes in the fearless or I just encourage you yeah maybe God-given opportunity and and like ever said you don't have to be young and not another 40 years old through to be a foster parent remove your older and your wife and maybe you and your husband your point where you can take somebody you they just need somebody to level in and give the love of Jesus and give them what may be that they have never gotten before their home, so I just want to thank you, Heather.
You and your husband and your kids only want an adjustment means one thing to have one child come in but 51 to be a chef for the your garlic cruiser love you with all if you come home with. I know crazy adopting them or if I do hope I adopted one.
I adopted one of the tingling on the rest lived locally that they can now they find every Wednesday and they had sleepovers and an elite had very different needs that were we just found that having each one having a home where they were like being able to be focused on would be really healthy for them and so they have all found great homes, with great people always, we stay connected and energy. Think right like we instantly adopted one of the one that the boys isn't that great now and you know he had an IEP when he came to us images like educational development may like educationally delayed and just about a month ago we had our last IEP meeting because he caught up on all its glory and read when he said that if they had to really fighting and not easy you know anybody thinking about fostering and adopting an ally and failed just like you easy thing, but it call the true religion is the care of the orphans and the and the widows right like this is life giving up.
Maybe the freedom you have are some of the finance if you have faith you have in your house or you know all about it. Is it something that is Christian. We should look into and you I have coming up when you especially during that time we would use such an angel like I can do that and thinking yes you can read the excuse is that somebody else could do that because I'm from national Angel letter have now like I said, yes, that's the only thing different for me and someone that they can't do it, but I get to and Southwell each one of us have that choice to say yes please God, that you didn't use it is easy I don't think either using your vocabulary. Your her mother to children and go on the form what is now the world's largest crowd for crowdfunding platform for Christians, so ever tell us why did you start your sin go like a little bit before the break, you know, we knew that people needed fundraising. We thought go funny. We thought it was a great idea and as Christians we knew that the money is not going to solve people's internal issues if they block the child and they need money for burial fee. No amount of money that they raise is going to pick them her and brokenness inside except for knowing that God is closer than a brother that he comforted Bethany bends down and listen to our credibility of the things that will will help HELOC not any amount of money in the week platform that combines people being able to raise money while purposefully cleaning them to Jesus. And so we about the discussions about what that would actually look like a great day. Okay, how can we share in our you have any of our employees what the mission statement and give think Elliot Bay would quickly fade to share the hope of Jesus to crowdfunding though. When Otto left the right platform where a focus.
We are focused on sharing the hope of Jesus.
No matter what your political beliefs, no matter what your religious belief, or lack of religious belief. You can come on get bingo you can read money and were going to share the hope of Jesus with you in one of the ways we came up to do with how to do that is one of the very first thing that we hired was a prayer team and so if you start a campaign on get bingo you will get a call from one of our team that will call you and say hi my name someone so I've been finding your prayer partner and get bingo and I pray right now your medical bills that you're going through word fire or your missions trip for you to whatever it is that you may think on fourth down partner will pray with you right here on the phone if you don't answer delete your voicemail prayer letting you know that would think for you and we seen people blown away that a big tech company would take time to call them and pray with even believe in EPS and say I don't even believe in God and that you would call and pray with me you don't know how much that meant until we you should hold seminars about Christian should run the business as a means so many people profess to be Christians but are not doing what you're doing and to have a prayer team actually call people do business with you and pray for them like a member of another company ever done that it was or something that the judges give you that the urgency somebody else or did you come up with that you know we want them discussion with the team just going okay here we say we want to share the hope of Jesus is greater than Bible verses on I emailed it's great to be praying how to pray now but on the campaign it only think that hopefully really we into people, situations, and minister to them and when I quell the contract. They usually have a pretty big need that fighter Andres we get we can get their phone number. What if we were to pray for them and it would like an immediate death.
Not immediate like oh my gosh that Emily I had a couple people step up right away from that Jacob and I my brother and I both like we knew it maybe went to check whether I think that would like you want to pay me to pray for people like this is incredible. I love pray for people like that God may need to be right and and I pretty much just continue to grow.
One day one of our prayer partners actually message me and she was in the middle of praying in a difficult like� They get to the older campaigns in a different always kept up to the new right as we go past the higher morning. Pray more and enter their praying and praying to elect randomly so it seems that but then one night on my prayer partners called me and she don't text me should I be praying right now I'm on the phone okay and everything I write will call you later and I we got to thinking of you, praying I pray partner disaster. Some compare right now. First on the call. I don't know what about she call me later and she said she had called the campaign owner. The older lady who would just the month prior lock her daughter to suicide.
The daughter and had a baby and had postpartum depression and ended up committing suicide and she started the campaign and then that father of the child, then a couple weeks later committed suicide as well.
Really tragic listening and when I prayer partner called the lady to start calling when she introduces herself and tell them why she's calling them and she says I just took out my gun. I was in and my life and I prayer partner and thought I might pay out random yet is it random, not so much because God knew that that lady would need a call from someone who said that that I needed to shares in hope with you, and she prayed with her talk with her for over an hour. We followed up the next day me church at a church family and people around her that would be able to be a speaking tour life and and be there for her and and from that moment on we had real and intent going three again the people that that I cannot believe you called at that moment while whatever no one else ever done Euclid McGraw for the first couple really is a good way of how God is moving in your company only I knew none of this about your company. What a blessing for how God is using you and you been obedient to listen to his call and how you're touching the lives of so many other people. I just want to thank you for being faithful and listening to what God told you to do one. I don't know of any other company that takes people right away is that prayer.
Pray for something to the whole team so I just want to encourage our no worker talk a minute about the terrible things that happened your company. After this commercial break, but this one encourage you and thank you for the standard taken for the Lord shall come back.

Well, what I'm talking to Wilson Wilson and her brother founded a crowdfunding platform for Christians for online giving companies called gives go, what I would encourage you to go to Gibson Job.com today warned about the company. If you need crowdfunding. I encourage you not to use allelic platforms not I get anything against them but wow if you listen to show you know this is a Christian company. God is using them away to touch lives really has nothing to do with money and to reach out to people, sometimes at a time of need to use when sharing our company has like a people to pray with her customers.
What a job get paid to pray while they decide up for that other boosters may be wondering maybe there over me.
I'll never use crowdfunding so tell us what is crowdfunding how's it working and what is just another name for fundraising getting a crowd of people on something that you need become anything over the last decade or so and as social media has popped up and people are online where they have all the social network. Their part out when they can share their fundraising need and so the company is really coming on. So how you how it works is you coming to get send out his family to start a campaign for my needs and then you love the forms we walk you through what he how much you need to raise what are you waiting fund for italic little bit about the story, the date you want people to know connect to our payment processor and start sharing your campaign and anything will clean it could be just about any like you mentioned burial fees owing to be something small, you know, not the burial fees are small, but to me it could be up in small or or even something large just really anything and then then you guys share this need with other Christians and others out there people discount about the kindness of the heart that want to support this need donated that out works more like it when you start a campaign you're going to be sharing it with your friends and I got the way for you to be able to share your name, your social circle your friends and family. Let them know that you're raising money for your missions For your pet. Belleville though your heart you know this so many categories and things people raise raise funds for it really is you starting a campaign and then sharing it with her article on NNN sharing yet and I think the great thing about crowdfunding is that with social media and things like that and might give.
They also share and then your campaign now conduct all their friends get send out as well. Click we have in my building what we call in Army givers where we invite people to sign up to give month-to-month any pain on get thing now for any amount that they want but they go on and a bounty of $10 a month and a defined thing. I commit to giving $10 a month for year and every month again remind Hegel pick up your canal and you typically go to bigots becoming part of Army because we do know there are people that come on our platform that may not have huge social circle that might not have a lot of family around or people with any sort of finances to help and I would like help in this area.
Givers now. Still, people who go to work. I made no money and no.
Unfortunately, there aren't yes people out there waiting to get to strangers. Although we are trying to build his Army givers which will do just that allow these thousands of people that sign up every month go on a day like God surely like to get you today and give their their money to whoever you know whatever campaign if you like to get you working on because we do know that it wanted frustrations of crowdfunding is that you kinda have to have a crowd that will want to support you. So this is basically a platform for people to you by credit card or debit card and they paid this platform and then the money is then deposited into the account of the person is wanting to raise the money.
Yes, absolutely. And so started campaign you connect your bank account to share your campaign people got all to Guatemala to give $100 and they come on and easily get hundred dollars.
The money directly to you. The people always ask about fees so when we first started go.
Finally maternity about 5% is always proper thinking. When you practice the credit card online which is usually about a 2.9% to 3% and only 35% but there percent processing fee and we came in and because going to be just under that you not great marketing idea will be cheaper than our competitors back until we came in at like 4% with a sliding yell model and we had all these great ideas in a couple months we dealt over and over again telling a campaign owner at the people who started campaign God has want you to do whatever you're raising funds for you will provide.
Like he owns the cattle on a thousand hills.
Like if you told me to go on the mission trip. If you told me to help your neighbor with fixing the car and he told you to do the things he's going to provide to you where you can trust him to bring the plaintiff and then Q get things done when you start feeling. However, we over and over again we ponder something you know you believe that you can go with a platform that God gave us the idea.
The timing of it all of it is his and make our platform free and so we knew we were going to go with a free model where we didn't take a 5% or 4% yield. There are the proper therapy because it is a third-party product that we can't is nothing we can do about it is not somebody else's business in South. That cute .9% processing fee to go directly to our profit. There you can go does not take a fee to use our site the way we operate is that when he goes against what they hear on raising money for your medical bills and I want to get 100 bucks I going right-I will get hundred bucks your medical bills and underneath it that you want to help you and go Friday and I can put a dollar amount and I can make it zero. We just figured the person reading the money really needs the money. There is much money as possible to be taking fees on the person who needs the money together if they have extra money if they have a couple dollars a dollar to dollar, you know, whatever that let you must an optional donation to help keep us free until we moved in obedient honor and and it worked and now a lot of the other platforms do the same thing wow what a blessing to others. You just trust God completely because you employed your expenses, your website, projecting that's really put your faith out there, and trust in God what testimony wow I'm so glad we're drained it off, is well got a formative left of this segment we would talk about how you start a company and how you were which are really a platform that stands for freedom, so you will only have four minutes to talk about this for you know the final segment, but let's talk a little bit about some of the attack, gives you because you have some famous people. Use your platform as well.
You've been accused of being a safe haven for right wing extremist that she is simply not true. Tell us some of the attack to come against you know you know we had an appointment as a Christian platform where thing people doing all great things around the world and in the neighborhood and then Monday we woke up and we had thousands of emails and death threats and hate now and and we were like what is going on here in look over our site and within your campaign has popped up is about two years ago, and a young man named Kyle Rittenhouse. Most people have heard about these days has an outer plague our platform because even deep platform off everything else off on me and Facebook and twitter and would like any PayPal. All of them. They said no he got he's been usually happen video it looks like you shot from people look like you like the primitive murderer person.
Let's we need to not let him have a voice here and we were like well you don't live in the United States. He wants to raise money for legal fees. We are supposed to be presumed innocent until found guilty in a court of law. We prayed about it and we spoke to counselor and we were like okay in the direction God wants to take it send out where the world is going to hate, hate at this question, but we were like we don't get into this, we couldn't say no sorry would often allow political campaigns or wire for legal fees and and things like that but we really felt strongly that we needed to stand for the freedom of this young man to be able to raise funds for our legal team that you should just have to be rich in order to hire a legal team and so we allowed him to raise funds on it. Send out and just a few months ago we saw as the trial played out and found not guilty in a court of law and everybody said were so glad you think of it behind Kyle and we said we didn't them behind Kyle. We didn't know if he is innocent or guilty behind the premise independent of guilty to freedom better for you to act in the United which have been bought by a high price for the spiritual freedom we have found that found in Christ. We want to share evenly. People who make stupid mistakes to find himself in a legal battle.
We sure hope with them. No one even the person on the cross beside Jesus was beyond hope that he could get in the redemption power that Jesus gave us for myself. If you talk to Kyle told you we got good family. I have not Kyle I'm not sure if my brother Jacob has actually spoken to him, but we are praying about and what I mentioned briefly where we would give now button and a share, and with every happening from having the man up right now button where you can click pray now and then send a message to the campaign owner letting them know you're praying for them and we heard from Kyle early on when he was going to raise all the money I can think out that the money was great to get them out of no and get him some bail money and stuff but that reading these notes of encouragement that people were sending Him going and he didn't feel it the love he didn't feel like everybody else wanted to take his voice away and he was like wow their people were standing behind me. People who are praying for me and that's what it's all about letting people, even people who maybe have made bad decisions we all, even people that we might they don't deserve it, that we say no to step into the math do exactly what Jesus did with our step in and show you that there's some redemption here that he can redeem it for good.

Is this you radio host and founder of American foundation, Dr. Chris, or maybe days in our nation's capital with Crystal embark on a journey of discovering the hidden cover much of America's Christian heritage up close and personal look and how it evolved over the learn about the government and the men who helped forge this new kind of Republic one that acknowledge the creator from its very inception the truth about the creation of about the fate of the mounting father Christian principles governing America.com secure your spot to join this company will call what is called a crowdfunding platform for Christian company is called Gibson go Gibson go give Gibson go.com if you want to set up crowdfunding and she was just sharing the story with those of how how written else. Remember he was accused of all because the phase 1. He was involved in a shooting incident and was really presumed guilty before innocent and he needed raise money for legal fees in a user platform and they came under tremendous attack and cancellation. Because of that evidence, but the only one recently.
I think you were involved with the trucker convoy and candidate as well watch yes or Kyle. What ends up happening is that we see more and more teens that are canceled off the other platforms finding their way down there going on. My gosh is a platform that we can have a voice on that we can let people know you know another side to that is the narrative that's being told on mainstream media. And so they would find their way to get find out what make us super popular vote we buy are our main goal of what you think it was all about is to share the hope of Jesus while people come to our platform and so every day.
This is what we talk about how we can share the hope of peace and hope of Jesus with people and that we see people come on our site from January people who find themselves in trouble for their actions on January think police officers that on themselves in legal battles.
The scenes entire mandate people wanted to fight back against the mandate using our platform to fund raise where they were to be allowed to write anywhere out the and we Jacob and I look at each other all the time they wow it's amazing that God knew it not amazing. You know we should know by now, but maybe God knew eight years ago when we started this adventure that we would be needed today or to be no funding vehicles for anybody that was more on the conservative side and so we find ourselves most recently in an in the trucker convoy issue up in Canada and that we operate in 40 countries around the world get think I was, yet we we are in 40 countries around the world in Canada is one of them and so the gutter convoy that we had one campaign on get think I'll call the doctor trucker that started right away federating money, but the big freedom convoy started up in Canada and they said no go fund me in the started to read money very quickly because they wanted to do a peaceful protest against the mandates that were happening and he wanted to take a trip across the country and end up in autolock and speak to the Prime Minister and let their voice be heard of peaceful protest. Let our voice be heard. This is what we want and so they read money and in the go fund me load like it doesn't like millions of dollars to about $8 million in the knowledge that in everything. Why did he go fund me there known to cancel people if they don't agree with them. And sure enough it seemed like all go fund me holding the money okay well now that the freeze on the money. I would not enough and return the money that we don't need it. If you don't it yet. They are just crazy and we watched it all play out and fell like their friend is using up and they raise a couple hundred thousand in the money why you know and convoy you get send out and then sure enough they came over and they created a campaign on get think of looking like go fund me was not going to release the $8 million Canadian dollars that they had raised and now people are outraged and so the time to get think Ellen many people gave 2 to 3 times the amount they gave him go fund me just because they were so frustrated and not that that their money had been censored pretty much that they weren't allowed to give to something that was a peaceful protest which is fundamental to any sort of Western society democracy if you don't have allow people to protest and you might as will be a dictatorship. You know the you tell me what to do and we have to follow if you want to call yourself a democracy you have to allow people to have hoisted and so they can shut this down and then they give think the first 24 hour and we had over 10 million detox attack on our website to the fight which crashed if you tried to get on it and go you would get a 404 page. Because our database is being attacked by people who did not want people to come to our platform and they were trying to take it down to rule in her system. The day where they were trying to take it.
You know not allow people to donate. They did not want bacon on they were glad go fund me shut this campaign down. It didn't think it should be allowed and so they were trying to take it down and that we were up all night trying to get our site working and we could see there a lot. Thousands of people on it, giving yet just very glitchy.
My kind work out that the bugs and like everybody was on our site year happened while trying to give the campaign have to while trying to take down the campaign. The next morning when we look at the numbers on our site. We thought at the trucker convoy raised $2 million and we were like this is a God thing, because there is no way our site where I can even get to it just gave me error pages could practice that amount of money without many attacks going on at the same time and we said okay you know what you stand here looking to walk without God we have no idea what you're going to do and that's what were going to allow this would then allow campaign to continue raise on the funds were going to have in the US bank account that is not going across Canadian border lot lines until we know that it going to because we really want to protect our givers. Canada started making the statement saying working to freeze all the funds. The funds are frozen from this campaign not you can't get to the campaign and we look at each other that well you don't have jurisdiction like where a US-based company.
You can shut down his campaign like they're going to continue raising funds without unjust low-end that that $8 million that was raised in about 3 to 4 weeks on go fund me with her In the week on gifts and go because people wanted there. It just shows people want to have a voice and so how can I then issued a statement their emergency act where they say it like that make this money criminalized and if you gave to the campaign preacher bank account. Begin $25 like one-of-a-kind. You and Rick thank you freeze your account they became this huge thing and was lying on my gosh like look at this government was really eye-opening. D. What power does when when someone challenges the government power. The fear tactic that take place and just as little company we got the time you got home invasion coming at you the story of a crazy, crazy only just continued to walk out of faithfully. I think I did that one of the cool threes at the beginning of the year this year that I got what you want to teach me to hear that support records and all that and I really like heat that I I'm faithful and I like that.
I know you faithful like I can look back over my life and feel like the good times and even the really bad time that I might have some doubts along the way that you were faithful and he said no I'm faithful today. You don't have to wait to see how it all is wrapped up. You know, when you look back you can see how it all played out faithfully. You think I want you to remembering people today when it doesn't look like it's going to just work its way out. The whole world began. Remember I'm faithful and so month later when this is all going on every day. Adequate number got remember you faithful but I don't have to worry God is faithful even I don't how to turn out. And sure enough you know that Canadian government and that criminalizing any money that is raised by these campaigns.
You can be charged criminally know where Guernsey were not able to spend the money over to Canada because anybody received this many people have been thinning and great ideas. Some hilarious ideas of how to get the money you got gift cards and we went and handed them out if the government could ever attract those card gain from this check, or money. The person receiving a gift card could be charged as a criminal. This point were going to refund the money because the other option is to let the Canadian government, hold it and maybe give it to the class action lawsuit that Ottawa citizens are saying that Congress displace them and made too much noise and they deserve a payout and so they're trying to feed that money was like no that's not who our givers one if you were knocking allow that to happen. The money is still in the United States that were going to just refund it is no chance of this money going to somebody that our givers did not want to make you feel like a failure of a little bit and then I got no I'm not in control of the outcome. I was not in control. God is in control.
He was teaching us something and I think he opened the world by two a lot of things as we watch this play out.
And unlike he had a reason. He had a reason and one of the reasons is now a lot more people know about to find out a lot I might think Erica you know we we we a couple months ago we were on a pot get in and people that we know it because of the alternative, someone said all we have on think of the replacement to get the money like that replacement type thing where the replacement and I would like to have a house that you know they have so much bigger name recognition and then I feel like Gideon where we dislike a small army down into the camp and made a lot of noise in the enemy look up and get themselves off like we do anything and we won the battle in my going one of the incredible that people do now know about gifts and how they know that work and freedom were going to stand to give people a voice, even people we disagree with. Because we know that the hope that Jesus gives us is for everybody and there's nobody too far gone from his grace and were going to pray with that member going to encounter them and make himself real to them. I'm going to continue walking without the best we can.
Not perfectly what to give greatly� All the time to give great to ourselves to get it wrong to give grace to the people who hate us within give grace to campaigners for making mistakes and and whatever way to cover this whole thing in grace because were not to get it right were not always get it right or play.
Just a quick prayer for you early. Father, I thank you brother.
The brother of the family.thank you for the work with children. Thank you for giving them the vision to start this company.
I pray that you have a hedge of protection around them, protect them from these attacks but usually attached for your glory as they have become the replacement company. I pray you make them the premier company in the world.
These kind of crowd funding campaigns as they stand for freedom and is they share the hope of Jesus Christ is give the wisdom they go down the path that you chose for them.
