The young lady gracing the slide show is Jackie Murphree from Decatur Texas. A college student who's life was forever changed when her car was hit by a drunk driver. Jackie's brain was shifted and she remained in a coma for several months until finally emerging. But now Jackie's eyes must now speak for her.
Jackie's faith family prayed that time forward for miracles. The miracles the world awaits for began to occur to the people that Jackie's life touches. Adversaries found common ground. People began finding ourselves in the grace of our lord and being brought together in the Methodist faith. Recovering substance abuser's refreshed, pausing to wonder in the beauty of the lives we had taken for granted.
Why should we not pray with Jackie because she needs us now. She is going to China where stem cell research has progressed to the point that it offers her a opportunity to become a vibrant interactive woman once again.
We can be part of this miracle. If you can come to Decatur there are many opportunities to help, but if you can't, you can be a miracle maker by sending a check to; Legend Bank/ Attn: Jackie Murphree Benefit Account/ P.O. Box 1001/ Decatur, TX 76234.

The Catholic Church's refusal to accept sexual diversity as a god given undeniable human condition has resulted in thousands of children sexually abused and more victimized daily by the very institution entrusted with the sanctity of life.
With the single minded determination of a bloodied fighter covering on the ropes the Catholic Church is swinging wildly hoping to inflict a mortal blow on what it mistakenly perceives as its opponent, sexual minorities.
Ultimately it is the silent innocent victim who suffers as the Catholic Church pays hush money and allows this abhorrent practice to continue. It's secrecy and duplicity condoning religious violence against boys and girls. As Sex claims against US Church rise over one half of the Catholic victims are just babies, children under 10 years old.
