WHY ABORTION CLINICS ARE GOING OUT OF BUSINESS

Why Abortion Clinics Are Going Out Of Business More Quickly

 

Why Abortion Clinics Are Going Out Of Business More Quickly

Abortion clinics across the United States are closing at the quickest rate since 1973. Is this the result of tougher regulations or a shifting industry dynamic?

Since 2011, 162 abortion clinics nationwide have closed or have ceased terminating pregnancies, according to a Bloomberg analysis. Roughly one-third of these clinics were operated by Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, which performed more than 300,000 abortions last year.

Bloomberg attributes this trend to tougher state regulations on abortion. As highlighted in the report, more abortion clinics have closed in Texas than in any other state, due largely to newly enacted laws.

Bloomberg reports that at least 30 have closed since the state enactedregulations requiring abortion clinics to adhere to the same health and safety standards as a hospital. Texas also requires abortionists to have hospital admitting privileges to a nearby emergency room, which means that if something goes wrong, they can get their patient to an ER quickly.

Pro-abortionists are quick to decry these regulations as an organized attempt to limit a woman’s desire for an abortion, claiming that these requirements burden women. However, several women have died or nearly died from botched abortions in clinics that didn’t have competent clinicians, adequate facilities, or sanitary conditions. If these clinics closed because of these regulations, that would mean they had previously been cutting women open without adhering to the same sanitary standards and building codes as a hospital.

However, new regulations aren’t the only reason abortion clinics are closing their doors. As Bloomberg pointed out, about a dozen abortion clinics have closed in California, which is known to be a very liberal state and more abortion friendly than most. In fact, the Golden State has no major types of abortion restrictions, according to the Guttmacher Institute. This means, unlike in many other states, there are no waiting periods, no ER admitting requirements, and no mandated parental involvement for minors seeking abortions.

So why are abortion clinics shutting down in a blue, coastal state like California?

It seems like the business model of the abortion industry is changing. Many of the clinics that have closed in the past five years no longer make enough money to cover expenses. In fact, almost 40 of the clinics that have closed since 2011 cited business or financial reasons for closing. Decreased demand is part of the reason why. Between 2010 to 2014, the abortion rate has dropped by 12 percent.

A closer look at the numbers Bloomberg provided appear to show that abortion clinics are consolidating. About 19 percent of the clinics that closed were located in areas with fewer than 100,000 people. Looking at Bloomberg’s map, it appears that all of the 21 clinics that have opened in recent years are located in urban areas. Planned Parenthood owns three-fourths of these. In short, abortion clinics are moving out of the country and into the city, and most of these are operated by Planned Parenthood.

THE ONE THING WE MUST STOP HIM FROM DOING

Don’t Let Obama Fill Scalia’s Seat

Congress has frittered away virtually every constitutional power save one:  the power of the Senate to deny presidential appointments to the federal bench.  If Senate Republicans expect conservatives to ever trust them on anything, then they must decline to consider Obama’s nominee to replace Justice Scalia. 

There is precedent for this.  In 1968, when Republicans were a Senate minority possessing only the power of filibuster, Everett Dirksen prevented Lyndon Johnson from appointing Associate Justice Abe Fortas to replace retiring Chief Justice Earl Warren and then appointing Homer Thornbury to take Fortas’s seat as an associate justice.

Senate Minority Leader Dirksen did not run the Senate or control any Senate committees.  Republicans, in fact, held only 36 Senate seats, and several of these were leftists.  Yet Dirksen was able to cobble together enough senators to prevent Johnson from filling a Supreme Court office during a heated election year.  The left, of course, squealed and yelled, but it lost, because Senate Republicans and a handful of Senate Democrats stood firm.

If Everett Dirksen, who was only a moderate conservative holding a very weak hand, was able to thwart LBJ, who had been Senate majority leader before he was vice president and who knew all the ropes and all the tricks of the Senate, then Senate Majority Leader McConnell clearly has the power to do the same.

In fact, all McConnell and the Republican leadership have to do is to decline to consider any nominee appointed by Obama.  State clearly that the Senate is exercising its constitutional power and, unlike Obama who presumes powers he does not have, that the power to confirm or deny a presidential appointment is at the heart of the Senate’s control of the Executive Branch.

This is also crunch time for any candidate for the Republican presidential nomination.  The argument is quite simple: the presidency and the Supreme Court threaten to overwhelm all other parts of our constitutional system.  Let the American people this November decide who will pick the next Supreme Court justice.

In fact, make this presidential election a battle about the proper role of the federal bench in our constitutional system.  Those who want more power flowing to unelected and unaccountable figures in Washington vote for the Democrat nominee.  Let those who think that lawyers and judges ought to run our nation support the Democrats.  Let those who want power to devolve back to the people and to the states support the Republicans.

The president could, of course, make a recess appointment to the Supreme Court – an appointment that would end with the new Congress and new president – but there is no right of any president to insist that his nominees be confirmed or even considered.  Any president who has acted as arrogantly and contemptuously toward the powers of Congress as Obama deserves no special consideration from the Senate at all.

The stakes are monumentally high.  Winning the presidency while delivering the Supreme Court to a radical leftist majority means guaranteeing that the drift of our nation into secular humanism and unconstitutional arrogations of power to judges, federal administrators, and others who are immune to our wishes will continue toward a cataclysmic end of the America we have known.

Moreover, this is a battle that we can win, if those Republican leaders who seek our help every election cycle will stand boldly against the left.  It has been a long, long time since Republican leaders in Congress have actually given conservatives anything like a political victory.  If these Republicans cannot or will not do so now, then it is truly time for conservatives to abandon the Republican Party and form, instead, around a political party and movement that are serious about what happens to our nation.

The timing, in some ways, is awful for conservatives, but in other ways it is perfect.  Do this one thing – let the next president and next Senate fill this seat – and we will begin to trust you again.  Fail, and there is no reason for conservatives to ever trust Washington Republicans again.

Rape Allegations: Media Hunts Bill Cosby, Celebrates Bill Clinton

Rape Allegations: Media Hunts Bill Cosby, Celebrates Bill Clinton

EDITOR’S NOTE: In light of the sexual assault charges filed against Bill Cosby this week and how Donald Trump is exposing the DC Media’s glaring double standard when it comes to the allegations against Cosby and Bill Clinton, this piece from 2014 (with minor edits) seems more relevant than ever.   

Regardless of the circumstance, time, place, identity of the victim or the accused, allegations of sexual assault are serious and should be taken seriously. Bill Cosby, along with George Carlin and Richard Pryor, is a permanent fixture in my lifelong holy trinity of stand-up comedians. I love the guy. I am in awe of his talent.

Nonetheless, a woman has come forward with the claim that Cosby assaulted her 30 years ago. The allegations are horrifying and media outlets from NPR to the Washington Post toCNN are treating the woman’s story with the seriousness it deserves.

The scandal is a classic case of Power vs. The Powerless. There is substance to the charges,including a lawsuit Cosby settled with the woman in 2006, and similar allegations from other women.  As loved and lovable and talented as Bill Cosby is, as much as I am personally fond of him for all the pleasure he has brought into my life, looking into this kind of story is what the media is supposed to be about.

Unfortunately, our media is not guided by the lofty principle of what it is supposed to be about; because history shows that when it comes to these kinds of allegations, some powerful men like Bill Cosby are taunted and hunted, while other powerful men with the first name Bill, who have faced similar allegations, are protected.

I am of course talking about former-President Bill Clinton, who like Bill Cosby, has been accused of rape and has been forced to settle a sexual harassment lawsuit. There is also another woman who has accused Clinton of groping her in the White House. All of this is above and beyond the countless extra-marital affairs that swirl around Clinton, including an admitted one with a 21 year-old  White House intern named Monica Lewinsky. Clinton’s deceit during the fallout of his affair with Lewinsky resulted in impeachment andthe loss of his license to practice law.

Juanita Broaddrick’s charges of rape against Clinton appear every bit as credible as those against Cosby. Moreover, unlike Cosby’s accuser, Broaddrick was a reluctant witness who never filed a financial lawsuit. Regardless, the media went out of its way to discredit and dismiss Broaddrick as a liar, a tool of the Right, and my personal favorite, “old news.”

Paula Jones would eventually settle a sexual harassment lawsuit against Clinton for $850,000, but not before Clinton surrogates smeared her as trailer trash as television news anchors chuckled along.

Kathleen Willey, a Democrat and White House volunteer who worked on Clinton’s 1992 campaign, accused Clinton of sexually groping her in the White House in 1993. The Clinton machine worked overtime to destroy and discredit her in 1998, and the media is still  too happy to play along.

Many of these women accuse Hillary Clinton of being behind campaigns of personal destruction designed to silence them and protect their abuser.

Let us also never forget that the elite media not only attempted to cover up the Lewinsky affair, but before Lewinsky came up with Clinton’s DNA on the infamous blue dress, his White House was pouring every ounce of energy into portraying this young woman as a crazed liar and stalker. And again, the DC Media was all-too eager to play along.

While I’m at it, let’s throw in the media’s never-ending Frankenstein villaging of Clarence Thomas, a black Supreme Court Justice who was dragged through the mud based on the allegations of only one woman. Unlike the allegations against Bill and Hillary Clinton, there was no established pattern with other woman. Just the one.

Herman Cain, a black Republican presidential candidate, was destroyed by the media just as he assumed the role of frontrunner. The sexual harassment allegations against Cain were nowhere near as serious as the charges of outright assault against Clinton, and no more credible. The only difference was a media determined to destroy Cain.

If political correctness was really about political correctness and not partisan politics, the media’s offense here would be condemned by the left as racist. There is no question that what we have is a media that takes allegations of sexual misconduct against black men with the utmost seriousness, while a white southerner is protected at all costs.

Race is certainly part of it. The elite media is left-leaning and the political left is desperate to keep blacks “in their place,” which of course means voting for Democrats.  Cosby, Cain, and Thomas challenge and question that destructive cultural mindset. Therefore, all three are threats to Power. Therefore, all three must be marginalized and destroyed at all costs — not just personally but also as a warning to others.

Again, the media is doing the right thing in chasing down the truth about Cosby, but not for the right reasons.

The media’s motives are racial and political, not noble.

If the media was really about protecting women from powerful predators, the idea of Bill Clinton as America’s first First Gentleman would horrify, not thrill.

 

Rush Limbaugh Warns Obama Will Do Things We Can’t ‘Conceive of Now’

Rush Limbaugh Warns Obama Will Do Things We Can’t ‘Conceive of Now’

Radio host Rush Limbaugh is warning listeners: during Barack Obama’s upcoming, final year in office, the president will move ahead with whatever he desires because “he knows nobody’s gonna stop him.”

“We’re fast approaching Obama’s last year in office,” Limbaugh said. “I want to warn you again, in all likelihood, there are going to be things this president does in the next 12 months that you can’t even think of or conceive of now.”

Limbaugh continued that Obama recognizes no limits to his power and he will do what he wants – “it doesn’t matter what the courts say, it doesn’t matter if Obama policies have a stay on them or temporary halt.”

“It’s his last chance to have personal stamps or fingerprints on the transformation of this country,” Limbaugh added. “He knows the Republicans have taken impeachment — it’s late for that anyway. There’s not gonna be any effort to stop him.”

Obama and the Democrats have already made clear they intend to further diminish the Second Amendment by using executive action to expand background checks to cover private gun sales, as Breitbart News reported Tuesday.

According to Limbaugh, Americans can’t rely on Republicans to block Obama’s efforts to further shred the Constitution.

“The Republicans are looking beyond Obama and focusing on trying to win the White House themselves and they’ve just chalked it up, whatever happens this next year happens, and Obama knows all that,” he said, but added, “The American people are gonna be angry as they can be and demanding that some action be taken to stop some of these things.”

“I can’t begin to predict the outrageous things that are going to happen specifically, but I’m pretty safe in telling you that there are going to be such things because there continue to be such things today,” Limbaugh said.

He also observed that Obama’s apparent contempt for the limits of his office as provided for in the Constitution has set a precedent for future presidents.

“Obama has blown through the Constitution like a tornado and has, in the process, set precedents, and there have been people seeking office who have said that they are going to fix the things Obama has broken themselves using the singular powers that Obama has appropriated for himself,” he noted. “In other words, Obama’s wanton overstepping the Constitution has created precedent where future presidents, if they’re inclined, might feel that they could or should do so as well.”

8 Reasons Democrats Hate Traditional Marriage

Democrats are ruining marriage

8 Reasons Democrats Hate Traditional Marriage

By GINA LOUDON

Have you ever wondered what it is about traditional marriage that is so offensive to Democrats?

1) Married people overwhelmingly vote Republican

For the last several elections, traditionally married people have overwhelmingly voted Republican. Married men and women supported Romney by 14 percent. Married women alone supported Romney by seven points. If only married people were allowed to vote, the GOP couldn’t lose no matter how hard it tried – no matter how spineless and worthless its candidates. The inverse is also true. If Democrats can cause fewer people to get married and fewer people to value traditional marriage, Democrats can destroy the GOP’s advantage among that group of voters.

2) Married people are physically healthier

Studies throughout the years have all agreed that in almost every way, married couples are physically healthier. Married people live longer, are less likely to develop cancer and heart disease, and are healthier in more ways than can be listed here.

You may wonder why Democrats are opposed to people being healthy.

Simply put, when people are healthy, they don’t need help from the government. Of course, no matter how healthy one may be, we are all now forced to purchase health insurance.

3) Married people are mentally healthier

Married people are less likely to suffer depression, develop dementia, commit suicide and are protected from a host of other disorders. Married people are also more likely to describe themselves as happy.

But why would Democrats be opposed to people being mentally healthier?

All it takes is one mentally deranged person to act out violently for Democrats to rush to a TV camera to call for more gun control and government surveillance. If only government agents were able to snoop on everyone (conservatives) 24/7, they could prevent violent outbursts. Also, they claim that if all guns were banned (except from men who guard the president and leftist politicians), there would be no more gun violence.

4) Married people are wealthier

Research done by Ohio State University found that married people individually are almost twice as wealthy (93 percent wealthier) than single people.

To a Democrat, that screams income inequality. It is unfair in the mind of a progressive for married people to have more money than unmarried people. Besides, what did those evil married people do to steal that money from everyone else? Don’t worry. Democrats will turn those tax credits for married couples into taxes levied against married couples. If only those pesky right-wing extremists would get out of the way, they could tax traditional marriage out of existence. That hasn’t been formally proposed yet, but don’t think that hasn’t crossed the minds of Democrats in D.C.

5) Marriage celebrates the differences between men and women

Feminist Democrats have been complaining for decades about being on unequal footing with men. Married people come together to combine the strengths that are inherent in males and females. Married people recognize the differences between the genders. They understand these differences are natural. Traditional marriage is disgusting to the militant feminist, and they’ve joined forces with Democrats to make sure that gender differences are blurred and that marriage is destroyed.

6) “Big Daddy Government” wants to replace the support of a spouse

Democrats love when people are dependent on D.C. Once Democrats can end the ability of churches to charitably help people and end the ability of spouses to help each other, the only place to turn will be a politician or a bureaucrat. More government employees means more voters who support big-government Democrats.

7) Marriage promotes accountability

Single people can make bad decisions without reproach. Men are better at making some decisions than women and vice versa. Whether it is a financial decision, a health-related matter or anything in between, married people usually talk things over before decisions are made and make better decisions from the start.

The government doesn’t need to restrict menu items at the fast-food restaurant to make a man quit his junk-food eating binges. The wife will handle that! The government doesn’t need to handle people’s finances or make sure they are planning for retirement. The husband will handle that.

When bad decisions are made or about to be made, one spouse will often warn of possible negative outcomes, or dissuade the poor decision. Democrats are dependent on people being dependent. If more Americans make solid decisions, and are held accountable by those who love them, then they need less government in their lives.

8) Marriage promotes children

Organizations like ZPG (Zero Population Growth), Planned Parenthood and even animal rights groups flourish when fewer children are born, or when having fewer children is the goal. All of those organizations are arms of the Democratic Party, so when they flourish, so does the cash in the coffers of the Democratic Party.

Should the government just stay out of marriage? No!

Democrats flourish when marriage is diminished, but many on the right side of the political spectrum still refuse to take a stand on the issue. They have fallen for the lie of the left that conservatives should be neutral on the issue. The idea that the government should “stay out of marriage” is exactly what the left would love the right to believe. If Democrats and their allies actively push to destroy marriage, and Republicans can be convinced that they should be neutral on the issue, then Democrats will win this one easily and traditional marriage will be something we will soon read about in history books.

There are few things the government can do to make a society safer, healthier and wealthier. Promoting traditional marriage is the biggest and easiest one of all. This is an easy sell to the American people if the GOP will just grow a backbone. Anyone who believes in a stronger America should make it their main issue in upcoming elections to defend and promote traditional marriage.

Who could possibly be against a stronger America? The answer: Democrats.

Why American Preachers will not unify against the anti-God White House.

 Why copy

Why American Preachers will not unify against the anti-God White House.

By Mario Murillo

You deserve to know why.  There are 500,000 ministers in America.  If they would unify and stand for Bible values, it would end the insanity of the White House overnight.  Why won’t they unify?

Make no mistake.  I am not anti-church and I am especially not anti-pastor.  I am loyal to my fellow preachers.  I am committed to the local church.

But I am also against the lie that says ministers should mind their own business while America is ringing down the drain.

This post has one passion.  It is to provoke someone far more influential than I.  Whoever that person is needs to stand now and use every last drop of their influence.  They must unify the ministers of America into one mighty voice.  It is time for a non-violent revolution; a firewall against the onslaught of evil…it is the only way this nation will be spared.

Half a million ministers should be able to do something!  Sadly, Satan has done a number on a great many of them.  In fact, this is by far the most widespread dereliction of duty by any generation of American preachers.  The enemy has neutralized pastors.  He has paralyzed some of them with fear.  He has deceived a host of them with false doctrine and false guidance.  He has seduced many of them with compromise.

I praise the faithful preacher, but I herewith indict the compromised preacher.  As I said, you who are in the pews deserve to know why your minister refuses to speak out.  Here are the reasons listed in order of importance.

  1. Fear of losing non-profit status. In the 1950’s, Lyndon Johnson caused the church to make a deal with the devil. The deal is known as the 501C3 designation.  Frustrated by pastors who were telling their people not to vote for him, Johnson introduced legislation that silenced the church.  In exchange for IRS status, churches agreed not to endorse political candidates.  The church did not need this designation because they were already tax exempt in the Constitution.  This fear is utterly unfounded because no pastor’s free speech can be overruled by the IRS.

It makes no sense to say you fear losing your status.  Unless we begin speaking out, an America is coming where it is illegal for your church to meet.  What good will your nonprofit status do you when you are an underground church?

  1. Lifestyle: 50% of all preachers who were polled said that if there was another way for them to make money they would leave the ministry. That means that for many preachers the ministry is just a paycheck.

If speaking out against Obama will cost them tithers, if standing for marriage and the unborn will offend some, they will not risk anything that could threaten their lifestyle.

  1. Racism: This happened in the midst of Andrae Crouch’s funeral. Stevie Wonder said, “The only reason that people have rejected Obama’s policies of inclusion is because he is black.” In a spirit-filled church, during the memorial to a Gospel legend who did more than anyone before him to cross racial lines with Gospel music, Mr. Wonder had to inject race.  When you value the race of a politician above Christianity, Bible values, and morality, it is racism.
  2. Ignorance of Scripture: Preachers today do not know the Bible. Many no longer believe it is the inspired Word of God.  They have crafted their sermons from pagan writers, motivational speakers and secular music lyrics.  They do not pray and search the scriptures. Instead they research pop culture.

This is why they are ignorant of their calling to be watchmen over the flock of God.  This ignorance of the Bible is why we hear them agreeing with atheists and secular humanists.

  1. Ignorance of America: They do not value America. They have forgotten the way God worked in our history. Linked to this ignorance of America is their ignorance of the threat to her existence.  They do not understand what moral awakenings have meant to the United States.  Since they are ignorant of this miracle called America, they are also ignorant of the urgency for revival.
  2. Apathy: Two extremes create apathy; one is self-sufficiency and the other is total discouragement. When ministers have too much or too little, they say, “What is the use in trying anymore?” One has given up because they don’t need the drama. The other has given up because they believe it is hopeless.

Even though the causes are totally opposite, the result is the same:  A nation dies because leaders cannot muster the necessary outrage to take appropriate action.

  1. Competition: Many preachers do not see their fellow ministers as brothers in arms. They see them as competition.  They see them as predators of their people.  Wanting the biggest church has blinded them to the fact that we are all in the same army; that we are on the same side.  Some preachers actually relish the idea that their competitor is losing members and suffering loss.

So here is the bottom line.  Our refusal to repent of these things, our rebellion against our duty to stand as one voice against the evil of our government, will cost us the nation.

I am not the man to unify the leaders.  It is quite possible that someone reading this is the person to make it happen.  As I said at the very beginning, we could wipe out the insanity of the White House in no time if we would stand together.  If we do not, we will go down in history as the worst generation of preachers in American History.

“But at night an angel of the Lord opened the prison doors and brought them out, and said, ‘Go, stand in the temple and speak to the people all the words of this life.’”- Acts 5:19, 20.

Living Proof comes to Austin during Jade Helm 15

Living Proof comes to Austin during Jade Helm 15

By Mario Murillo

Here is my message to those of you who believe Jade Helm 15 is the start of martial law: trust me, I do not discount the possibility.  For those of you who think it is utter nonsense consider this devastating fact:  most would not be surprised that our own military could be preparing to take away our freedoms. 

In blog after blog I have been crying out like a voice in the wilderness.  America now needs a miracle that is indescribable and unprecedented.   However, my God specializes in the impossible.

Why would God bring us here at this time unless He meant to do something impossible?

Living Proof Austin, TX will happen during Jade Helm 15 this weekend.  We did not plan it that way, but God did.  There is a purpose to our being in Austin that is way beyond what we know.

I have been totally silent about Jade Helm.  I am waiting for hard evidence that our government is planning to establish martial law.

This much I do know…

-For the first time, a massive army will be walking on private property, not wearing uniforms and blending into communities.

-Millions of Texans are wondering why Texas is designated as “hostile territory” in this elaborate war game, while states that are favorable to Obama are listed as “friendly.”

Let’s assume there is no martial law planned.   That leaves only two reasons for designating Texas as hostile and those reasons are really bad. 

1. The military has made an epic public relations blunder. Texas is taking many stands against Washington right now. Texans are ignoring Obama’s executive orders. They oppose the Supreme Court rulings on marriage, Obamacare and immigration.

Why on earth wouldn’t generals realize how this looks?  How could the joint chiefs not realize that this plays right into the worst suspicions of Texans?  If this is a screw up it is a massive one and makes us wonder about our security.

2. Obama is trying to intimidate Texas and other states who oppose him. Is it really this easy for the “Commander in Chief” to step in on a preexisting military operation and tweak designations like hostile and friendly territories.  If the military can be manipulated this easily then “God help us” is not just a figure of speech.

Of course we have no reason to believe that Obama would behave in such a peevish manner…do we?

On a much needed lighter side:  If Obama is doing that, he doesn’t know Texans.  He needs to remember what the park ranger said, “Don’t shoot the grizzly with your pistol; you’ll just make him mad.”

Pastor and Lou copy

It is a great honor to bring Living Proof to Austin, Texas this weekend.   We are partnering with Jim and Lou Lillard and House of the Lord Fellowship Church.  I regard Jim as one of the greatest pastors, spiritual fathers and men of FAITH in our nation.  It is awesome to team up with Jim and Lou.

House of the Lord Fellowship is not just a congregation; this is the best trained core of Christians you will ever meet.

Their mission statement reads: “House of the Lord Fellowship Church is a family of believers focusing on impacting Austin, Texas, and beyond with Faith in God, the truth of God’s Word and the amazing love God has for us.”

Their motto is: Faith through knowledge produces truth in action.  That motto will come alive this weekend as we expect an outflow of miracles leading to an influx of souls. 

Whatever the military has in mind for Austin, God has something greater!

It has been over a decade since we have crusaded in Austin.  This is God’s time!  We welcome our friends from this region to come and see the new surge of anointing that is resting on us.  God has added firepower to MMM in order to reach America.

The lame will walk.  The deaf will hear.  The blind will see.  God will heal cancer and every other malady in the mighty Name of Jesus.  These are not catch phrases for us…these are convictions.  We hang our lives on these convictions!  Bring all who need a miracle.  God will not disappoint them.

Joining me in this great outreach is Ray and Debra Larson.  They will lead the morning sessions in Austin.

Ray and Debra copy

Ray and I are veterans at winning the lost and healing the sick.  We teamed up for many great crusades in Redding, California when he was pastor of Bethel Church.  Under his leadership, Bethel grew from 80 people to over 2,000 members.

Ray and Debra were led to move to Reno, Nevada, six months before the Lord directed Mechelle and me to Reno!  God is doing a new thing here.  Stay tuned because you are going to hear way, way more about this.

Everything about Living Proof Austin points to the fact that something urgent will begin this weekend.  If at all possible bring someone who needs a miracle.  Prepare to receive the touch from God for these desperate days.

Here is the schedule of events in Austin:

Sunday July 19- Mario Murillo/ Living Proof at 10:30 AM and 7 PM

Monday-Tuesday – Wednesday at 10 AM, Ray Larson will speak

Monday – Tuesday-  Wednesday at 7 PM, Mario Murillo/ Living Proof

House of the Lord Fellowship Church is located at 817 W Howard Ln, Austin, TX 78753
