OUR MOST DESPERATE NEED IS TO GET BACK TO THE BAPTISM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT

The mobs who are tearing America apart have succeeded so far, because they have been able to make Christians feel alone, overwhelmed, and resigned to the lie that this is the new normal. The mobs can do this because they are organized and coordinated, and the church is not. We are under a demonic cloud of psychological manipulation.

The church is being flooded with advice, but that advice only seems to add to the confusion and heaviness. There are many things we need right now, but one stands out. An answer that was right under our noses, and it is so simple we missed it.

We need to correct the worst mistake that the Spirit-filled/ Charismatic/ Pentecostal movement ever made. We need to return to preaching the Baptism in the Holy Spirit and we need to make it a priority to start praying for believers to be filled!

Whatever happened to the Baptism in the Holy Spirit?  You don’t hear about it anymore.  Churches don’t pray with people to receive it anymore.  And there’s a big reason why.

Preacher, if you stopped presenting the Baptism of the Holy Spirit to your people—Satan made you do it.  If there is no room in your service for people to receive this urgent gift—the enemy has seized control of your agenda.  If your people don’t even know what it is—you will answer to God.

No matter how noble, persuasive, or convincing the argument, the decision to exclude the Baptism of the Holy Spirit from the life of the church, is a decision conceived in hell.

Omitting this Baptism was a masterstroke of Satan.

He knew this was the most destructive deception possible.  It created lukewarm Christians.  It single handedly wiped out a huge amount of our soulwinning.  And, it opened the door to untold heresy.

Today, we are swimming in more false teaching, false prophecy and false Christianity than ever before.  All across the internet, ministries dabble in New Age-hybrids of Christian faith, exotic extremes, drunkenness and even perversion.  Turns out, the church is the other swamp that needs draining…

Noted Christian Apologist Ravi Zacharias said, “I had dinner with the most popular preacher on television.  He told me that he did not see much difference between Islam and Christianity.”

How can we hang the blame for such foolishness on the way we have neglected the Baptism of the Holy Spirit?   Let’s examine the evidence.

Jesus said, However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all Truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come” (John 16:13).

Jesus calls Him the Spirit of Truth.  He imparts hunger for the Truth.  It is futile to layer Truth on the unwilling soul.  False teaching abounds because there is a lack of hunger for Truth that the Holy Spirit awakens.  Let’s go back to the root issue:

Don’t make a move without it!

And being assembled together with them, He commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the Promise of the Father, “Which,” He said, “you have heard from Me; for John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now” (Acts 1:4-5).

The church has no witness without it.  Acts 1:8 states: “But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”

The Apostles considered it an extreme urgency for all who have believed on Christ as Savior, to be filled with the Holy Spirit. 

-Acts 8:14-15: “Now when the apostles who were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent Peter and John to them, who, when they had come down, prayed for them that they might receive the Holy Spirit.”

-Acts 19:1-6: “And it happened, while Apollos was at Corinth, that Paul, having passed through the upper regions, came to Ephesus. And finding some disciples he said to them, “Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed?” So, they said to him, “We have not so much as heard whether there is a Holy Spirit.” And he said to them, “Into what then were you baptized?” So, they said, “Into John’s baptism.”  Then Paul said, “John indeed baptized with a baptism of repentance, saying to the people that they should believe on Him who would come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus.” When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. And when Paul had laid hands on them, the Holy Spirit came upon them, and they spoke with tongues and prophesied.”

We have two extremes in the church:  Those who believe in nothing and those who believe in everything.

Or to put it another way: We have those who know nothing of what the Bible says, and those who believe anything anyone says about the Bible. Both are products of a lack of discernment and power.  It is only after you experience the real presence and power of God that you know what is fake.

Look at the discipleship that resulted from the Baptism of the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost:

Acts 2:41-43: “Then those who gladly received his word were baptized; and that day about three thousand souls were added to them. And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers. Then fear came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were done through the apostles.”

One big reason that the Baptism of the Holy Spirit is not preached today is because it is the natural enemy of church marketing.

When God falls, church culture instantly changes.  Human promotion becomes obsolete.  An audience morphs into an army.  An insatiable hunger for the Word of God replaces sales-pitches.

The preacher who withholds the Baptism of the Holy Spirit is guilty of treason—of withholding a priceless gift that was bought and paid for by the blood of Jesus. They are guilty of holding back an edge of power that would keep the believer strong, alert, and able to win others, a gift that endows them with a prayer language which pierces all adversity.  How dare we hold this back!

The Pentecostal revival is the greatest Christian revival in history.  Beginning in the humble Azusa Street Mission, it has blazed for on for over 100 years, with over 650 million converts.  Only one thing explains it:  The Baptism of the Holy Spirit. It is the answer for this dark hour!

Vessels of Fire and Glory

Vessels of Fire and Glory is Mario’s newest book. It reached number one on Amazon among all Spirit-filled books. John Kilpatrick who led the Pensacola Revival said this after he read Vessels of Fire and Glory: “As I read the manuscript for Mario Murillo’s new book, Vessels of Fire and Glory, I said to myself, “Finally!” Mario has measured the church and the nation in this season and did not hold anything back. His honesty is like the sun rising inside a dark cave. This release is a paradox—it is sobering and refreshing; it is symptoms and the cure. I believe this revivalist has penned a treatise that should be in the hands of all who lead the work of God.”

Here is a book about the end times with a totally different approach. It does not focus on how the world will end but on how to live as the curtain comes down on humanity. Powerful, practical, and encouraging.

  1. NOT BY MIGHT NOR BY POWER, BUT BY MY SPIRIT SAYS THE LORD. BE STRONG IN THE LORD AND IN THE POWER OF HIS MIGHT. THAT YOUR FAITH SHOULD NOT STAND IN THE WISDOM OF MEN, BUT IN THE POWER OF GOD. THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS NOT IN WORD, BUT IN POWER.

    1. What I’m concerned about at this point is the condition of our nation and the unwillingness by those who say they Believe, to address the mess with Holy Spirit intervention.
      This country is in dire straights, we need a miracle, and The Holy Spirit is the great miracle worker!
      If those who are The called according to His purpose, will invoke The Holy Spirit to take CHARGE of this mess we’re in and we’ll stand back and only accompany His actions when asked to. Then maybe we can change the trajectory toward hell this nation is headed on.
      Holy Spirit is a Person who deserves our attention and commitment, just as we give our love to Christ, we must love and adore Holy Spirit.
      More and more I’m convinced that those who refuse Holy Spirit baptism empowerment and guidance are not Christians in the first place, but by name only.

      1. I have said exactly the same thing!!!!!
        I have prayed for years for churches to preach the baptism in the Holy Spirit again…but they are interested in numbers and money.

  2. “One big reason that the Baptism of the Holy Spirit is not preached today is because it is the natural enemy of church marketing.”

    The real coup has happened in the Church. Talk about the whole counsel of God being hijacked by fakes and frauds and the spirit of Laodicea!! – Acts 5:20

    “And Peter said to them, “Repent, and let each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is for you and your children, and for all who are far off, as many as the Lord our God shall call to Himself.”- Acts 2:38-40 NASB

  3. Manifesting holy spirit is our source of power. It is G-D in the messiah within us. Speaking in Tongues (a language that the speaker does not know) is perfect prayer, perfect worship. It is always directed to G-D.

    We are seeing the 1st century coming alive in the 21st century. We are seeing signs, miracles and wonders. However if someone was raised from the dead during a funeral there would be 50 more funerals due to everyone dying in shock.

    Just realize that most of the young people would not be shocked. They want anything but normal.

    1. GR-G, not G-D. It is GOD the Father, GOD the Son, and GOD the Holy Spirit. The Blessed Trinity. One GOD in three persons. The Trinity in unity. The antichrist denies the Trinity and denies that JESUS is the Messiah. All those who are baptized in the Holy Spirit and Fire will magnify the name of JESUS.

      1. I practice Hebrew Roots. I speak in Tongues but believe in only one god. Not the trinity which is paganism. And within Judaism it is respectful to not refer to the Holy One by name. Thus G-D is a way to refer to the god and father of our Lord Yeshu’a, the Messiah (anointed one). I could have also used HaShem which is Hebrew for the “the name” which refers to the four letter name of our god. Or Elohim (god of gods).

        Christianity was corrupted with pagan influences under the Catholic church. If we are going to see the 1st century alive in the 21st then that paganism has to be purged.

      2. Mr Dean,
        Christ Jesus affirmed that we are now enabled to call HIM Abba, Father. Christ HimSelf told Philip, “…when you’ve seen Me you’ve seen The Father.” The one who the Son sets free is free indeed. Writing God’s name by doing it a certain way is old legalism.
        How do you reconcile practicing Judaism with the fact that Apostle Paul clearly explained there is now therefore NO Jew nor Greek nor slave nor free, nor Barbarian nor Scythian, but only Christ is all in all.
        If you’re believing that mere Catholicism “corrupted Christianity ” at large, turning it into paganism, then how do you explain all of the blood bought, born again, devout Believers, across the globe who were and would be willing to die because of their love for Jesus Christ?
        Rubbish.
        Judaism with all its protocols, rituals, and observances, Paul said he counted all his Jewishness as “dung” compared to the surpassing glory revealed in Christ Jesus.
        Now I get all the Hebraic roots because I have it in my lineage, along with having been where you are years ago studying every form of Aramaic, Hebrew, Torah, Tanakh etc. But I grew up and then understood Christ’s Love compels us into the HIGHER calling to know that He alone is well able to make the Gentiles stand before The Son of Man, and to sanctify His covenant universal church protecting it against the gates of hell itself. Let alone Catholicism.
        Even within Catholicism there are blood bought, born again, tongue speaking believers, that will be in heaven along with every Messianic follower.
        Father, Son and Holy Spirit are ONE known as The Godhead, seen in the Face of King Yeshua.

        Suggest Re-reading John 17.
        As Lance Wallnau says, “As one”.

  4. Amen,
    I pastor just preached on receiving the Holy Spirit, now more than ever before.

  5. I RECEIVED JESUS AS MY LORD & SAVIOR 1974, DURING THE CHARISMATIC MOVE IN THE CATHOLIC CHURCH. IMMEDIATELY AFTER, Required CLASSES IN THE WORD ABOUT HOLY SPIRIT FOR 6 WEEKS…65 converts were then prayed over us with the laying on of hands…most spoke in tongues, few that didn’t, had the experience of speaking in tongues within a week or two …There were so many signs & wonders for 15 yrs…The Lord healed me of cancer….The Lord multiplied food at food banks… many many more miracles, church service would last 3-4 hours, noone was ever in hurry to leave…..The church today is dead….When you have tasted the annointing, the presence Of GOD, with signs & wonders, you cannot be satisfied ever in dead churches….So you get tired of trying to find a spirit filled church to no avail & just stay home & spend my time with The Lord….Church feels uptight, everything is time structured….too many programs.YES WE NEED HOLY SPIRIT TO TAKE CHARGE AGAIN.

  6. Amen. Well said.
    I especially hate that “drunk in the spirit” junk. Both Hannah and Peter said [I] we are NOT drunk. They were both at the beginning of significant changes in the times. We must be clean and sober. Thank you Mario Murillo for persistence in the Truth.

    1. Not so much preached as taught. Not just that we should be manifesting holy spirit but how to manifest.

  7. Amen, Mario!
    So many years ago I cried out to God that I knew Him, Jesus I knew, but Who is the Holy Spirit?! I never heard any preaching on receiving the baptism of the Holy Spirit at that time. The Lord heard my cry and introduced me to Him. Receiving the baptism of the Spirit absolutely changed everything. All the advantages you wrote about I received.
    You are correct, what we need now is Holy Spirit baptism…in masse!
    Thank you, Brother Mario

  8. I had a profound experience with the Holy Spirit after weeping and crying to Him for several days that I needed Him, over and over again. The experience went on for a week and was beyond anything I can describe here. It was after that, when Perry Stone was at our church, that I received the Baptism. I was desperate for the Gift of Tongues, went up front and kept telling Him to take my tongue. He fell! His Presence was so thick, and it went on for a long time. I have never been the same. If you have not received, start asking Him out loud, today, and don’t stop. Tell Him how much you need Him.

  9. Years ago I was in a “Bible” church and the pastor made fun of speaking in tongues , speaking Jibberish, from the pulpit! I hear he is no longer in the ministry.
    We Christians need to take hold of the power God has given us.
    Now back to praying in the spirit as my daughter undergoes radiation to her brain for cancer….

  10. When I got saved I wanted everything God wanted me to have. And I wanted to pray in the spirit and I got baptized in the Holy Spirit quickly. And I don’t know what I would do with out him. It is a must as far as I’m concerned but churches with name tags that don’t believe how are they ever gonna get it? They think it’s not for today! Well it’s all for today God is the same God he was in the Old Testament and the New Testament. You believe the Bible from the fro t to the back ont just parts of it. All churches need to be filled with the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues! I can’t understand believing in some of the Bible and not all of it. But the candy coated preaching sure won’t be baptized in the Holy Spirit! People just get to me that sit back and wait for someone else to do the warfare! I have always thought it is very important! They just don’t have the power with out it. I’m not saying God won’t answer their prayers but how can they put on the full Armor of God and fight warfare with out it? I just don’t know.

  11. Once pastors swallowed the teaching of how to grow a large church…numbers, numbers,numbers…money, pride,..what the community wanted a church to be like…instead if what does Jesus want His Kingdom to be like?
    He said don’t do anything until you are filled with the power..then be my witnesses. Without the Holy Spirit man does it on his own…no power.
    Those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. Only ones with oil (the Holy Spirit)in there lamps are ready when the bridegroom comes.
    People wonder what happened to The Assemblies of God churches…they embraced “The Purpose Driven Church” (written to pastors in 1995)doctrine…and every church that did left out the baptism in Holy Spirit. It is that simple. That teaching went all around the world and is still being taught.
    That was satan’s plan to destroy the church…and he has done a really goid job.
    Many people (the remnant) have left the organized church. It had become so anemic..nothing like it was years ago. Oh yes, there will be many swept into the Kingdom now..but not the same way it happened in the past. Keep your eyes on Jesus…

  12. KIM CLEMENT’S POWERFUL PROPHETIC WORDS

    MARIO, we just listened to a broadcast from Kim Clement from 2010. His daughter, Donne’ Clement Petruska said, “This is a broadcast that I found this week that has given me so much insight into our current global situation. Please take the time to watch what my Dad, Kim Clement, said about President Obama back in 2010 and what he saw emerging from the choices the former President was making. What is remarkable is that the warnings my Dad was seeing a decade ago are manifesting before our eyes, but GOD has given us a promise. HE will protect us!”

    You can view this on YouTube titled Obama’s Choices-Kim Clement from2010 / Prophetic Rewind.

  13. Pastor Mario, I think you should see these. I would not post them but I believe this pastor is for real and has heard from God, and I feel that I have to make as many people aware as possible. Like he says, if nothing happens, great! He’s prepared to take the name-calling and harassment if nothing happens. But he says he knows the Lord’s voice and he must tell what he has seen. This isn’t conspiracy stuff, this is an Assembly of God pastor in Kentucky. Please watch. I trust your opinion. Other trusted people have said similar things, but these are the most detailed. And they are imminent.:

    1. kingskid48,
      These are very compelling dream testimonies, this Pastor is sincere.
      I’ve often wondered just how bad it will get in November 2020, after the election, whether DJTrump wins or not , I sense we’re in for it either way. Just look at what’a being allowed to go on during his Presidency at this moment.
      NOW is the time to pray in unity for The Rapture of the true church Bride to our Bridegroom.
      Standing Rapture Ready!!

      1. They are true dreams, kingskid. A friend of mine sent me these just recently. Some things are unconditional and others are conditional. We must pray harder and more fervently than we ever have before. Can these things as seen in those dreams be averted? Now is the time for repentance and a crying out to God for a spiritual awakening across the land.

    2. This brother has heard from God. The book of acts church knew how to lift up their voices in prayer. They cried out. There will be alot of crying out as we progress through these coming months and face the stark reality that Jesus still hasn’t caught up his church. I think prices will steadily go up on things we need, with scarcity coming. Let’s stock up now (don’t hoard) and keep our gas tanks full. Let’s get our temples cleaned up and filled up with the Spirit. Let’s pray in tongues without ceasing, and take every opportunity to help people into Christ both online and in person. If we cant lay hands on those who are sick and fighting to breathe, let’s ask the Lord to send his healing angels to their side. I agree with everyone here that our God is not going to stand idly by and let the devil run up and down this earth like a bully, causing havoc and destroying lives. He is going to head that devil off and show Himself strong for His people, as Mario has written. Come on! Let’s lift up our voices together!

      1. Amen lonesome dove, I would add to what you’ve said here, regarding the Rapture great catching away, that even though we might have to endure through the encroaching darkness ahead, it is still GLORIOUSNESS holding true in the bosom of our spirits, that our GRAND Savior could “pick us UP and take us home” at any moment, in the twinkling of an eye‼️👼
        What a Blessed Hope we have in Jesus.💗

  14. This article is conformation to me.Several days ago I felt the prompting of the Holy Spirit to draw closer to Him ,to open my bible and allow Him once again to teach me about Himself. I have come to realize that it is only the things of the Spirit that are enduring. I always wondered why people could have what appeared to be profound experiences with God on Sunday but by Wednesday they were deflated. It was ministering to the soul,playing on emotion and not having a lasting effect.We worshiped worship,in looking for an experience we lost the One who is always standing by,to affect permanent change in us. A little leaven is truly dangerous,how quickly we can drift.But God is gracious as we allow the Holy Spirit once again to lead us in His perfect way.

  15. Dear Mr. Murillo, Thank you so much for this post.  I have been following you since I saw you on the webinar with Lance Wallnau.  It was eye-opening! I have been trying to understand the Baptism of the Spirit, asking God for it, and so on.  Nothing has changed.  I’ve been a believer for a very long time and have always been taught that every believer receives the Holy Sprit the moment they are saved, that there is no “2nd Baptism of the Spirit.”  But I believe what you are saying and have searched Scripture and found some verses but am having a hard time figuring it out. I know you are a very busy man but if you have any resources you can recommend to me to help me understand this I would appreciate it.  The church I attend talks about it but I don’t see them doing anything other than the “regular” baptism after someone accepts Jesus. I am desperate to grasp this and have the power Jesus longs to give. Thank you so much!Kate Borland Jupiter, FL

      1. Amen Brother Mario,

        Our church opened up one week before what is known as the “Day of Pentecost” historically. Over the next two weeks we preached the Baptism in the Holy Spirit “Goal or Gateway.” People were healed and filled in the services, where we are required to maintain social distancing. We are required to worship and sing unto the Lord with mask on. The healing power of God moved on people cancer, positive COVID-19 healed or no symptoms of covid -19 after they were found positive man recoveries. In the second service we had three people all youth baptized in the Holy Spirit. I say amen . Yes we need the empowering of the Holy Spirit . You would think it would be easy to see this, everything else has failed LOL.

  16. So my church, one of the Calvary chapel churches says the Holy Spirit resides in us the moment we believe, not sure exactly how they arrived at that, otherwise most bible teachings are excellent. I was baptized in the Holy Spirit a year ago.

    1. It is true you receive the Holy Spirit when you are saved, you can see this in John 20:22.
      Jesus told the disciple to go and wait after they were saved for the Power of the Holy Spirit. They all confessed Jesus as Lord, Jesus breathed on them and they received the Holy Spirit indwelled. Then HE told them not to leave Jerusalem until you have been empowered from on high. The Holy Spirit came upon them as HE did on Jesus. The Holy Spirt came upon Jesus when HE was baptized in water. John chapter 1:32 And John bore witness, saying, “I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and He remained upon Him. “Upon HIM” Jesus did not need the indwelling Holy Spirit but the man Jesus did need the Holy Spirit to come upon HIM and that is what happened why?

      Jesus is our perfect example of how we can make it today and be a witnesses of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ . The Lord heals today because 1. HE loves and 2. HE is a live.

      IN you and upon you just as HE did on the prophets, kings, judges, and priest.

    2. The holy spirit is placed in you at the new birth. What we call baptism of the holy spirit is your first manifestation of the holy spirit. It is like a baby’s first step or word. The ability is there at birth but takes time to be developed.

      The new birth makes us whole as we have holy spirit.

  17. Thanks, Mario, for your critically needed words and ministry.

    Just in case you haven’t seen this video that is going viral, I think you should be aware of it and it’s possible import for what the Church in America needs to know is possibly coming this fall.

    Here the link to the youtube video that also has this introduction: Pastor Dana Coverstone of Living Word Ministries Assemblies of God in Burkesville, KY shares three prophetic dreams he has had and their relationship to current as well as near future world events.

    God’s richest blessings and continued anointing be on you,

  18. Acts 8:17 “As soon as Peter and John arrived, they laid their hands on the Samaritan believers, one after another, and the Holy Spirit fell and filled each one of them!” This is the same, but not the same in heart, John, who asked Jesus about calling on a different fire from heaven to destroy the very people he later blessed. Jesus called it for the old John by telling him he did not know thr spirit he was of. The baptism John received in the upper room transformed an angry man into a loving man for the very same people. Religion vs Holy Spirit.

  19. Sooo
    Where is an active fellowship that carries the early church’s
    mandate and power?
    I am a senior and live in Walnut Creek.
    Thanks.
    Blessings &

  20. True, exactly right!      A scary number of “Pentecostal, Charismatic”  churches have been operating in witchcraft, and getting away with it for many years now, many of them are surrounded with other swamp creature ministers who validate them, and each other….these are churches who attract ministers who also like the spot light,  (SWAMP CREATURE ministers!!!!!!!)  …..I have been vexed for many years with the amount of ministers who have no qualms about preaching in their pulpits…. which makes them partners in crime! ….They have been in the mixture for so long , they no longer can discern the truth from the false, or the real from the profane!      A number so called mega churches, continue to preach, and teach fairy tails, and empty, sterile sermons, without the convicting power of the Holy Spirit!  ….I also believe some of these ministers/pastors could be likened to Simon the Sorcerer, …..You can not impart what you have!…..They are drunk with bitterness, power, pride, and control!!!! They think they know better than their Creator.  The Baptism of the Holy Ghost is everything!  Hell does not want us to know this TRUTH,

    The “True church of JESUS CHRIST” has unlimited POWER!

    Thank you Mario !

  21. The reason no one has an invitation in churches to receive the Baptism in the Hoky Spirit is because tongues are no longer believed to be the initial evidence of the Holy Spirit. They were politely removed when pastors realised that those who had not received were resentful and angry at those who had. So rather than teach on the subject and maybe lose a few (tithers,) they said tongues is not always the evidence.
    Biblically it is.
    But what’s the point of going to an altar to pray for the baptism of the Holy Spirit, if you don’t know what to expect. If you’re told, “Well, you asked, so therefore you have it!”
    You preachers are all so PC now that even you dont know anymore what the first evidence of receiving the Holy Spirit is.

  22. Correction: Holy Spirit – not Hoky!

    Hoky spirit is what you get when you’re told you already have the Holy Spirit, but in fact, you haven’t.

  23. All I can say is wow! This article has nailed what the American church is becoming. For so many years, I was believing a lie that Holy Spirit Baptism was a thing of the past. How WRONG that pastor was. Thankfully, the Lord brought a totally different pastor into my life a number of years ago, who taught us the truth.

    I’m so thankful for this amazing blessing!

    Kim

  24. True, Mario. I once wrote to get ready for a summer of miracles back in march, believing that by late spring – early summer the plague would be abated with the understanding that increased temperature would cause it to fizzle out. And now another upstart. Would to God that somehow, by a revelation and a new idea you could get out there and reach the people. Do you suppose the Lord is not pleased with the overall atitude of the church by and large, and that we haven’t cried out with the collective fervency He desires? Having been caught flat footed were we overtaken and left at our wit’s end as to what to do?

  25. Thanks again. Great word. I am very thankful i found your site. Your Christian friend Peggy Cummins.
