The Capitol Briefing held in Topeka last week was a huge success. Believers from over 50 cities in Kansas attended this event. Speaker and historian, David Barton brought a fresh understanding of our true history and showed how Jesus is working through us, just as He did our Founding Fathers. Donna believes we are plan A to save this culture and there is no plan B.
The fresh new face was Neil Mammen, author of Jesus Is/Was Involved in Politics. Neil teaches Apologetics and helps Pastors and all of us articulate the arguments that come against us when some say Believers should stay out of politics. Neil help christians respond to statements like, “You can’t legislate morality,” or “The church just needs to preach the gospel.”

Portland Oregon – Sweet Cakes by Melissa bakery closes store after being targeted for not supplying a wedding cake for a same-sex couple. Bakers Aaron & Melissa Klein respond: “I hope that if nothing else, we’ve given people that believe the way we believe the strength to stand up,” said Aaron. “I believe that we’re living in a time that’s very hostile towards Christians. Our First Amendment rights are being stripped away and I’m willing to stand up and take this fight.”

“If I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain…if my people pray, turn, repent, …” 2 Chronicles 7:13-14
– Praying for Rain in Kansas. Last December 8th – Reign Down USA came to Topeka, Kansas. We were in a severe drought. Much prayer took place in preparation for this large gathering, in a tent in front of Cedar Crest.
For days before the event heavy dew fell over the land. We hadn’t seen rain or moisture for months. We sensed the Lord’s good pleasure at this gathering. Believers from all over Kansas came to cry out to the Lord for mercy. We repented, our Governor repented, we asked the Lord for an open heaven and we got it. All the way home back to Wichita a heavy mist and gentle rain fell. There has been much answered prayer since then in Kansas including the drought being broken. Jeremiah 33:3, “ Call unto Me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things which you do not know.”
“He will restore the hearts of the fathers to their children and the hearts of the children to their fathers, so that I will not come and smite the land with a curse.” Malachi 4:6

It wasn’t American Pride that spoke that day for those of us who love Our Lord. We knew that repentance was the only place to turn. It was a day of terror that called His people back to Him. We’ve studied the outcome by reading Rabbi Jonathan Cahn’s book “The Harbinger.” We know that our nation must go back to our foundation and realize also that our constitution was never meant to be implemented by anyone except God’s people, Christians; Please go to this website to see this tribute to America about 9/11. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n_zodL2VyV0
Sept. 17-23 is Constitution week. “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.” Psalm 33:12- Sept. 17, 1787, our constitution was signed into law. Federal law requires that all schools study the constitution on that day.
Constitution Day (or Citizenship Day) is an American federal observance that recognizes the adoption of the United States Constitution and those who have become U.S. citizens. It is observed on September 17, the day the U.S. Constitutional Convention signed the Constitution in 1787.
The law establishing the present holiday was created in 2004 with the passage of an amendment by Senator Robert Byrd to the Omnibus spending bill of 2004. Before this law was enacted, the holiday was known as “Citizenship Day”. In addition to renaming the holiday “Constitution Day and Citizenship Day,” the act mandates that all publicly funded educational institutions provide educational programming on the history of the American Constitution on that day. In May 2005, the United States Department of Education announced the enactment of this law and that it would apply to any school receiving federal funds of any kind. This holiday is not observed by granting time off work for federal employees.
When Constitution Day falls on a weekend or on another holiday, schools and other institutions observe the holiday on an adjacent weekday. This was the case in 2005 and 2011, when Constitution Day was generally observed on Friday, September 16 and 2006 when the holiday was observed on Monday, September 18.
Universities and colleges nationwide have created “U.S. Constitution and Citizenship Weeks” in order to meet the requirements of the law
