June 7th~ Read at a friends funeral today. I have only known Susan a month, and visited her some 5 times to bring her communion at home.

This topic will lead off with Hosea 4:6 and a reading from Ezekiel 33. What is it that the Watchman is to alert us about...what is it that we perish for lack of knowledge of? This topic will reveal what over 30% of Catholics deny exists and what safeguards and knowledge we can have to serve as protection. Met with a friend for lunch and discussed getting the 501 (c) (3) paperwork finished.

Feb. 25-27th~ Speaking at Anachrocon. Making Mead on Saturday as well as a panel on Distopian literature. Two panels on weapons through history. Panel on Sunday morning: 'Gnostic Gospels and Heresies.' This turned out to be an ambush of sorts for me. What I thought was to be a playful romp thru banned topics ended up with me being confronted by 3 self-proclaimed gnostics...more mystic than gnostic from what I could tell. One of the panelists is a Cabbalist. It ended up being a delightful debate never-the-less, and I hope very enlightening for those in attendance. 3/4rs of those in attendance were non-Christian. Hopefully pictures are to come~
Feb. 13th~ Speaking at St. Thomas More Catholic Church, 7pm. Subject will be an overview of the need for the armor and what it consists of.

June 29th~ Nursing home ministry. Take a handicapped friend shopping. Our collaborator in Buford is discussing ways to work with us for other funding events, i.e. the mead classes with Roman Daze Meadery. There should be a good clientele up there for it. Also a much better environment to host the classes. Returned a phone call to a woman in California. Turns out she was at her wits end and thinking about suicide. She had called several local churches but none called her back. After an hour long conversation and sharing with her many scriptures, she thanked me and gave me a blessing the likes of which I haven't had in a long time. I told her I wasn't sure which of us got more out of the call~! She wanted God to give me half of the gifts He has given her as I am worthy and doing His work. She felt restored after our talk. I am sending her a new Bible as the one she has in apparently an old Douie-Rheems and she finds it hard to understand.

One of the officers told Vicky, 'there are a lot of CRAZY people on MARTA,' and they were concerned someone would attempt to take my sword from me. Vicky thought to tell him, 'Well, if someone did, -HE'S- the only one I know of that could get it back,' but she kept her comment to herself. I manned a booth with 'ALPHA' State Rep. Bill Glass Fellowship contacted us and wants to collaborate. About 500 people at the event. Unfortunately they were more interested in the entertainment and then the 'Feed the Children' food give away. Made several good contacts that we believe were divine appointments. One of the organizers, Belinda, is getting us in contact with all the churches in Georgia they work with. She was quite taken by my ministry.

June 17th~ Had another long 'war council' with Development Director tonight. We went over the business plan for 'Warrior Centers, Inc.' and have it just about done.
June 16th~ Had a meeting with Pace Setters today. They have been primarily doing commercial work and want to move into non-profit. Accolades would like to move in the other direction so we had a meeting of the minds. It was apparent to me that they rely mostly on selling material to cover the expense of a program.
June 15th~ 'War Council' with Development Director. We got the articles of incorporation for 'Warrior Centers, Inc' out to the Secretary of State and the advertisement in to the newspaper. We drew up the elements for the vision statement tonight and have the motto pretty well in hand.

Oct. 12th~ Serve at church. While having a donut after Mass, I was approached by a woman who participates with the Charismatic prayer group on Monday nights at the church. She approached me regarding a gentleman named Valentine that had moved here to America in following a calling from the Holy Spirit. He left behind his family and his fiancée to follow this calling, has been here now some 6 months and is wondering what he is doing here as -the Holy Spirit isn't as on fire in people here as in Nigeria.- She asked if she could pass on my contact information to him and I gladly gave her a card. If I can make their meeting tomorrow night, I will go to meet him. Spoke with two other acquaintances at the church about the political and economical situation gripping the country. One of them is suffering from the recent loss of her sister and three days later one of her sister's siblings, her niece. She attended the new grief counseling class at the church last week. We talked about grief and dealing with the loss of loved ones.
Oct. 11th~ Phone counseling. People in a panic about the stock market and have to stop panic selling. A sell-out now guarantees a lose unless the investments are rolled over into strong blue chips at a historic low currently. Met with the Artistic Director of the dance studio in Decatur tonight. He has several names for prospective fencing students and we are planning on a launch date for the classes of Jan. 5th. I will begin contacting my old students and request the class outlines from West Coast Ministry Director~ V.W. It appears the current Solarium will be unoccupied by the first of the year with the opening of the new dance studio, so I may have three days to schedule classes initially.

As AIM west coat ministry director, she is looking forward to moving to Georgia effective Christmas '08 and working with me to launch AIM in a new direction next year. She brings with her the administrative expertise I don't have. Looks to be an exciting year coming for AIM.

California is into its 70th day without a budget and M2 is suffering to the point of closing its doors. While the money is approved and the contract still stands for 2 more years, they can not operate without the funds in hand. I believe the STATE is trying to balance the budget on the backs of the non-profit contracts.

Sat, Oct. 20th~ So much for a 'Day of relaxation.' Nikkie P and her daughter Alicia visited with us in the morning. We had a visit from Joe S. from Fresno. He came up to discuss with me some spiritual matters, and ask for some prayer. He feels led to work with my ministry. He spent 2 years in formation for an Order. Chaplain Rodney came by in the afternoon and he and I shared a good amount of time together. He shared with me several prophecies others had they felt concerned me. I believe the prophecies and visions foretell of a return visit next year in the mountains at St. Anthony's. They all seem to indicate it.
Fri, Oct. 19th~ Got clearance to get into yard #5 of Avenal today, 11:30am. This was a powerful meeting with many attendees asking for imposition of hands. One of the wards, Michael, stood in for me today in the armor. He was a solid 6'3", 230lbs, and he couldn't stand at attention and salute for more than 1 minute. He wore the gear most the entire presentation and upon removal of the helmet, he looked like a new man. Very meek. Everyone commented on it. He said he would never forget the experience. The last encounter I had upon leaving the yard was a False Prophet that wanted to berate the teaching from a Bible that had some 20,000 errors in it. I stood with him in every fact he stated, but pointed him to the folly of his argument by the essential truth of the Word. I would have loved to have shredded him with his own argument, but the guards called us from the yard. Tonight was a wonderful BBQ with friends and family of host Victoria Walters. Most of these people I will have met by now from previous visits. Some 30 people in attendance. This was a relaxing night out of the kit. Gonna get to sleep in some tonight as tomorrow is said to be free. Several people showed up only momentarily to share with me visions, and prophecies they had for me. Kima and Rhonda asked for special prayers. One of the ladies that had participated in the Mission had been told by me to be watching for an eminent attack of the enemy, and last night she discovered a sudden lump in her breast. I believe it to be a ruse of the enemy to daunt her.
Thur, Oct. 18th~ Managed to get into yard #6 of Avenal today. Amazing turnout. Appearance at Hanford Street Market. Ran into many people I met at the church. Daniel Croakly was there in all his innocence, dancing up a storm to the music. Several people met with us and walked the streets with me while I shared with the people of Hanford.
Daniel opens his Lemonade stand next week~! New Buddies Tony and Joe

Wed, Oct. 17th~

addressed an entire facility~! Squeezed in another CCD class at
McCarthy School this afternoon at 4:15. Another huge assembly.
Tonight will be the
conclusion of the Parish Mission at St. Brigid's Catholic Church, Hanford,
Cal. 7-9PM. The Helmet of Salvation, Shield of Faith and Sword of the Word
will be covered. Questions entertained. Many people
stayed after to ask for prayer, testify to healings last night, several saw
angels in the Sanctuary, some claimed their children were coming back to the
church. Many expressed thanks for having their spiritual eyes opened and
they were able to understand the spiritual defeats they had been claiming.
This was perhaps the true test of my spiritual stamina. Very long day, but
it flew by and I was amazingly alive after the last session. We were in
the Sanctuary until about 11-11:30 tonight praying with people, taking pictures
and sharing testimonies.

Tue, Oct. 16th~ Avenal State Prison yard #4, 9am. Chaplain Rodney pulled me aside and testified that he had been awakened 2:30 in the morning and was up all morning studying scriptures as he was led to them by the Holy Spirit. He was deeply impressed by the events of yesterday in yards #3 and #2. He put a fire under those he needed to get authority from to get me into the remaining yards at the end of the week. This afternoon was a visit to St. Rose McCarthy School (Catechism Class) 4:15pm.
One of the classes
Got them all worked up~!

This evening was the second installment of 'Awaken' at St. Brigid's Catholic Church, Hanford, Cal., 7-9PM. This second installment will cover the armor of the Feet- the Preparedness of Peace, the Belt of Truth and the Breastplate of Salvation. Questions were entertained. Permission was granted to stay in the church as long as people were requesting prayers and discernment. Many spiritual gifts were evident today. Many attendees mentioned they had profound dreams last night concerning spiritual battles in their life they had not been aware of. Many people came forward to have prayers for healings for physical, mental and emotional wounds. The Gift of Laughter was used to dispel depression and several people claimed healings. Another long night.

California, 7-9PM. This will be the first Parish Mission hosted in
the Archdiocese of Fresno by A.I.M. The first session discussion of Spiritual
warfare included the need for the armor, how the enemy has attacked us and battle damage.
Questions were entertained. A number of people came up afterwards
with specific prayer requests for healing and discernment. We had a
professional photographer offer to shoot pictures during the mission. They
will be nice to have. Very little rest tonight.

back. They all took responsibility for their actions and are prepared to
meet new goals upon release. Unfortunately, for security reasons, this is
the only picture of a State Facility I am allowed to take.
