Wounded Warrior Barnes, USMC and his wife address crowd

What an inspiring morning! Oakland, FL boasts of being the most patriotic town in the U.S. as it opens its heart to another "Home At Last" Dedication this morning for wounded warrior Barnes, USMC and his wife and little boy, Max. This severely injured marine will now have a mortgage free home in which he can maneuver more easily, and raise his family with peace of mind. 

Flag Raising at new home
The Flag Raising Ceremony and mini tour began at 8:30 this morning at the beautiful new residence, 210 W. Oakland Avenue in beautiful Oakland , FL.

Stunning plaque in Living Room of new home
Their new home is so spacious, absolutely gorgeous, and best of all, debt free! What a great way to give back to those who have given so much for us!

What an honor to be invited to speak today at Sunday Worship Service the Ayers/Holt "Breaking The Chains" Amway Summer Conference. This Event was held this weekend at the beautiful Rosen Shingle Creek Hotel in Orlando, FL.

Amway Diamond Nancy Ayers with Ed and Mary

April Holmes holding her Gold Medal next to Gary and Nancy
It was an honor to meet April Holmes, Paralymic Gold Medal winner. A true overcomer!  April lost her leg in a train accident but did not let that stop her! Besides her personal running achievements, April started a Foundation to assist physically and learning disabled individuals to reach their goals by encouraging them to rise above any obstacles that will give them an opportunity to develop to their full potential; thus realizing that the opportunity of a challenge is rewarded with success. 

April asked for 300 Psalm 91 cards 
for an Event she is holding for her Foundation 

This Responder has done 5 tours between  Iraq and Afghanistan! 
We salute you, Sir! OS91 loves and appreciates you! He actually received
Psalm 91 cards from OS91 while in Afghan. 

Ps 91 books available after the Service and were gratefully taken.

Two tours overseas! We thank you, Sir!
What a blessing to see this young man (2 tours overseas!) who is in the 143rd ESC from the Armed Forces Reserve Center. He made himself known and thanked us for coming not only to this Event but also to the Reserve Center for the 143rd's Prayer breakfast a few months ago.

Unfortunately, I did not get a picture of Roger and Roxanne, but Ed and I congratulate you with all our heart for your achievement of "Going Diamond" in the Amway business. You are so deserving! It was wonderful to see you again!

Finally, our profound thank you to our precious friends, Gary and Nancy, for the honor of being on their stage. We love you and appreciate you so much!
