A SPECIAL SUMMER REPORT
Dear Friends, I need your help. As the summer draws to a close we have
depleted our resources and are showing a shortfall for the first time
in months. God has blessed us because of the faithfulness of so many
of you who read this report, pray for us regularly, and give, but we
are experiencing the same difficulties many ministries face during the
summer and I have decided to ask my friends to once again help us.
For the past ten years, I have been attempting to stand up as a pastor
and call other pastors and Christians of all faiths to stand in the
gap on behalf of this nation. I have been maligned and slandered by
both misinformed Christians and the radical left for "mixing
Church and State."
I plead guilty to that charge as I believe that in a nation such as
this, Christians are the church and along side other citizens, we are
America was founded by men who understood that Christianity is unique
among all the religions of the world. The central truth of
Christianity is that a true believer is one with Christ and hidden in
God through faith in the finished work of Christ on the cross,
validated by the resurrection. And our government was unique among all
the nations of the earth at the time of our founding as our Founding
Fathers asserted in the foundational document of our nation that,
"all men are created equal and endowed by their Creator with
certain unalienable rights..."
Abraham Lincoln said of our government that it was, "Of the
people, by the people and for the people."
I often reply when asked to justify my defiance of the left's
mantra that a preacher should confine his remarks to matters of faith
and leave matters of the state to the professionals, that "I am
the state and I am the Church. How can I separate the two?"
I cannot and I will not be silent on the great moral issues of our
But I need your help to do it! Every month we face serious financial
challenges. There is so much more we could do if just a fraction of
you who read these weekly reports would stand with us every month. We
could be more effective in defeating cloning wherever it rears its
ugly head. We could be more effective in defeating hate crime
legislation that keeps being resurrected by the left. We could be more
effective in getting good judges on the bench and bad judges off.
People are amazed at how much we get done with the limited resources
we have, but it must grieve the Father to know how much more could be
done if more of you would stand faithfully with us.
Please consider joining our family of regular contributors. I am
praying that 100 people who will open this Report today, will click
here and sign up to give $10.00 per month by credit card and become one of our Vision America Action Patriot Partners. Please be one of the 100.
I am also praying that many of you will forward this email to your
personal e-mail list with a recommendation that they sign up and
support this ministry because you believe in it and have decided to
join our Patriot Partner program. That is the only way we can grow our
support and enlarge our effectiveness.
When you join our other faithful Patriot Partners, you become a part
of a ministry that is making a difference. I have listed with links,
some of the action items that we are monitoring and addressing right
now. I regularly field media inquiries about the effective work of
Vision America, and when you become a Patriot Partner, our work
becomes your work.
CNN's special, God's Warriors, will feature a segment on
Vision America approximately 40 minutes into the third installment in
the series. The episode airs tonight from 8-10 p.m.
Please pray for fair and accurate reporting of our work, and know that
your gifts have made our work effective enough to be included in this
three night documentary.

THE KEY TO AMERICAN STATESMANSHIP
Number 5 in Alan Keyes' ongoing series
When poor policy produces bad results, it's often painfully easy to
recognize inadequate leadership.
Unfortunately, when this standard becomes the main criterion for
assessing the quality of our leaders, we end up losing ground —
because we only remember to move forward when we realize we're falling behind.
