My passion is the fight for freedom. My father fought for a World War II defending our country. Today, we are no longer fighting with guns. Instead, we are fighting an ideological battle for control of our country by contributing to causes that support your constitutional rights.
I am Patriot Mobile. That was a shooting gallery up there. I could hear the tremble in his voice. She suffered a very severe being.
The video is pretty graphic. Justice, for us, seems almost impossible. It's not fun to watch somebody die, and they knew she was in mortal peril. They had not asked the hard questions. Why was the Capitol intentionally insecure that day? The FBI had information about security concerns before January 6th. They're out for blood, and they're getting it. They appear to be winning. Were the actions of the Capitol Police out of line? Were there violations in use of force?
Now I describe it as an inside job. I'm ready to do whatever God calls me. There's an old Chinese saying my ancestors learned before the Communist Party took over our country. The family is the essential unit of human society and that you must have honor and defend your family.
But it's not always easy to do. When the regime gives the order, you have to kill. My heart was pounding. I felt my body bouncing and twisting on the floor. They put numbers on our shoulders, then separated us into rows of even and odd numbers.
I was number nine. My brother, he's still in prison. And my sister, she was sent to a labor camp without a trial. But there's one piece of evidence they haven't been able to destroy yet.
I left everything behind. If I can't expose what they did to us, then all of our suffering would be for nothing. Welcome to Chosen Generation with your host, Pastor Greg Young. But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people, that you should shoe forth the praises of him who has called you out of darkness into his marvelous light, which in time past were not a people but are now the people of God, which had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy.
And now, Chosen Generation, where no topic is off limits and everything is filtered through biblical glasses. And now, here's your host, Pastor Greg. And welcome back to Chosen Generation Radio, where no topic is off limits and everything filtered through biblical glasses. I'm your host, Pastor Greg.
Thanks so much for being here. I know you have a choice of where you can listen each and every day. And I thank you for keeping it tuned here to Chosen Generation Radio.
Well, I'm very, very pleased to have my next guest. And again, just want to remind you, cgrwellness.com, cgrwellness.com. And if you go to chosengenerationradio.com, chosengenerationradio.com, all you need to do is go to the health section and all three of the available health products are there and available to you that you can find. The CGR Wellness is there. The detox that Tim spoke about is there. And then also the prayer to reverse the effects of the vaccine that we have had tremendous, just tremendous testimonies about is there as well.
And that's at health under the heading health at chosengenerationradio.com. All right. My good friend David Wormser is back from Israel, back here in the States. And you and I have been in just constant contact. I mean, we talk a lot.
We've become friends, and I'm very pleased for that opportunity to be your friend. But we've been in constant contact about these issues since October 7th. In particular, if you missed it, we did a two and a half hour interview on that day. We have done interviews regularly since that time.
And you can find all those at Rumble at Chosen Generation Radio Show and just do a search for Dr. David Wormser. But David, some of this stuff, and I want to get to current, but some of the things that are happening, you know, you and I sat down. It had to have been the month before this when we went through on this show with the map of Israel, and we showed people each one of these danger spots, and you analyzed for us why you believed these were hot spots and why you believe we were probably looking at a, you know, that essentially what you said is, look, Israel is already at war. The missiles may not have yet been fired.
The invasion may not yet have happened. But the reality is, is that based on everything else that the enemy is doing, they are acting as though they're at war with Israel. You know, I'm so glad you raised that, because when you look, when the shots are fired, that's already well into the conflict.
Sure. And, you know, we learned this with World War Two, with Hitler and, and, and Tojo and Japan. We learned this about the Ayatollahs before the hostage crisis, before we learned this about North Korea, we learned this about Xi and China. These people are not dishonest about their goal. They're very dishonest, but they're not dishonest about their goal of being at war with us. They openly say it, crow about it, and then they prepare for it. And it's a constant malady of the West that we say, well, they don't really mean it. I mean, who in their right mind would really want to go to war, etc. I mean, we're a decent people. We don't go to war because we like war. We go to war because we have to.
So we kind of project that on others. What you saw in Israel was they were openly talking not only about war, and there had been wars before, every two years, basically, some sort of war. They were talking about a highly escalated attack on Israel that they called the circle of fire that surrounded Israel from the north with Hezbollah in Syria, Hamas from Gaza, an uprising in the West Bank that then also has Hamas, PIJ, and PLO attacking Israel, and then in the south, Yemen. And a lot of people thought, well, that's a nice fantasy. You know, Israel is so powerful. This is just typical Arab fantasy.
They don't really mean it, nor would they really have any interest in doing so. So people were pretty secure in their belief that there was a stable state of deterrence and a stable state. And lo and behold, here we are in the middle of the execution of the circle of fire strategy. And you're right, Pastor.
We went over this a month before and I think two or three months before. I think we might have even mentioned the word circle of fire. But if we didn't, we talked about a five-front war or a six-front war, which is the same way to say circle of fire. And here we are. And it didn't take any brilliance. All you had to do was listen to what they said.
Brandon Weikart was just on with me. And we were talking about this. And we were talking about the number of fronts. His assessment was is that at this point, the second front is really not fully open yet.
It's opening, but they have not released the dragon yet, so to speak. But his greatest concern that he expressed was the level of sophistication of the weaponry systems that are available to Hezbollah, to Hamas, that are way, way beyond anything that Israel has ever had to defend herself against, ever. And probably are more than any other country in the world has ever faced, period. Because obviously, I mean, the strategy, the kinds of weaponry that we battled, whether we're talking, I mean, even when we were in these little Afghan skirmishes, and I don't mean to take away from our soldiers who fought, I mean, these were terrible wars and fights they got in and all of that. But what I'm saying is that the weaponry that the other side had and used against us, one of the reasons that we, once we got into an actual military conflict with them, we always won.
Why? Because our technology was so far advanced to their missiles sitting on the back of a truck. Yeah.
Also, by the way, I think our spirit, but at the end of the day, you're right. It's what Israel encountered with Hamas were quite a few innovative pieces of weaponry for, I think, one of the famous pieces that they ran across was an RPG, a rocket-propelled grenade. This has been around many, many years, but not a thermal barrack one, which essentially injects gas and then ignites the gas. This is quite new, and it's a North Korean design, apparently. It was built by Iran, but there's also a lot of North Korean equipment. And Hamas is on one level, because of all this, yet on a higher level, its missiles have very big warheads, they're very precise. Hamas missiles are terror weapons. They throw them on Israeli cities, but they can't tell whether it's going to land here or 500 yards away. The Hamas, the Hezbollah missiles are accurate. They can take out an airport runway, they can take out an intersection. Strategic ballistic, strategic ballistic missiles.
Right. And maybe not yet hypersonic, but getting close to that kind of level of assault. Yeah, Iran claims it now has, by the way, hypersonic missiles. But Hezbollah also has advanced anti-tank missiles, the latest forms of them. A few of those showed up in Gaza, but Hamas has only limited capability.
Hezbollah has huge capabilities. And that's one of the things about this war. What happened in the south could have happened in the north times 10 or 100. And that's one of the things the Israelis are thinking about, which is they can't end this war with the same problem in the north, unaddressed. Which is why I think we still have a long war ahead of us, and we have both fronts ahead of us. Both rough fronts. I mean, the northern front is really two fronts.
Right. Syria and Lebanon, OK. But they really operate as one front. So I think we have a lot ahead of us. But one thing I would warn America about is what Israel is encountering here. Think for a moment about North Korea. A lot of these are North Korean weapons and Iranian weapons. Iran and North Korea have an integrated defense production structure. So our forces, we have, what, about 30,000, 40,000 troops in North Korea, many of them in the north along the DMZ.
Right. The human orchard zone, Seoul, the capital of South Korea, is only, what, about 60 miles from the front line with North Korea. We know North Korea has drilled many tunnels.
They're deeply aligned with Hamas and Hezbollah, use many of the same tactics. And certainly the weapons are North Korean in some cases. What I'm very worried about is that we will encounter this in North Korea, invading South Korea this way, and taking 10,000 American hostages, American servicemen hostage, killing 1,000 to 3,000 more.
And God knows how many South Koreans. And so I think what we need to look at is this is the world of barbarism, the axis of barbarism against the West. And Israel has to hold its water and it has to win this on its own.
And it has to essentially maintain the Western pillar in the region. But this is an attack on the West as a whole. Well, and I think, and I think and I know we'll get into more of this with probably we'll get into more of this with Jeff Dunitz in the next hour when we talk about, you know, the view of how American Jews are addressing this particular issue. But you know, when we talk about the Holocaust, where, you know, people are people in our old 6 million, it wasn't really 6 million, and how could you do 6 million in three years and all this kind of stuff?
Well, actually, it was 12 years, number one. But setting all of that aside, we do and it's no disrespect to the, you know, to the Holocaust and what happened to the Jewish people. But there were another 5 to 6 million who tried to help the Jews in those days, Christians and others, that also were exterminated along with that, okay?
And it's important now, especially now more than ever, to remember that and understand that. Because if everybody's saying, oh, well, you know, this is the point we're trying to make to you folks. Yes, this is an assault on Jews, and we can talk about anti-Semitism, we can talk about all those things. But at the end of the day, this is an assault on anyone, anyone, anyone who believes in the God of this book right here, of this Bible right here. Anyone who follows this scripture, this word of God, that actually traditionally follows the values set out and associated with it, holds to a biblical worldview. If you hold to that, then you are an Orthodox traditional Jewish person, you are an Orthodox traditional Christian, and you have become the enemy of the world and the enemy of states, including, unfortunately, this government right now, the tyrants that are living in Washington DC, which is why every single day that they try to tell Netanyahu and Israel, you can't attack, you can't attack yet, you can't do it, nope, just, just wait, just, just hold on, because, you know, we're gonna, just, just hold on, just, just, just hold on, while they send $100 million to Gaza, while they put $6 billion in the hands of the Hamas leader, who you know is sharing that with Hezbollah and Qatar, because they don't need the money to go to Iran, David!
Right. You know, you, I think you really put the finger on the key issue here, which is, not all people who have disagreements with Jews are, I mean, a lot of people do that out of genuinely good intentions, and God knows that the Jewish people in the Bible even, don't come out, they don't acquit themselves all that well as a people often. You know, Moses, I, I really think that the, you know, we have the, the great poem about Moses and Mount Nebo, looking at the Israelites crossing, and it's, and it's the height of melancholyness, the sadness of his, that he can't go.
Well, it's really, in my view, it might be a misinterpretation, because I think he felt like good riddance, they are such a stubborn people, my first cup of coffee in a long time that I can enjoy, etc. You know, that being critical of Jews is not anti-Semitism, and there's certainly a lot to be critical about. But Jews are the symbol, in many ways, for a lot of people, of the core of Judeo-Christian culture. And if you take on that core of Judeo-Christian culture, you will inherently take on the Jewish people in a genocidal way. And so when you see communism, when you see Nazism, this is an insult on the foundations of the West, and you cannot avoid attacking the Jews if you, if you are attacking the foundations of the West. So often, anti-Semitism is a harbinger of a much larger assault.
When Nazis went after Jews, it was inevitably going to wind up in a world war. When communism went after Christian priests, or later, earlier on, they weren't as bad toward, they weren't bad toward Jews, but not as bad. Later, of course, they were very strongly anti-Semitic.
When communists did that, you know, there was just no reconciling with the idea of the West. And the communists are the ones, David, that actually created the elders of Zion writings. The whole myth of the elders of Zions was created in the 1920s by the communists, and then adapted by Hitler to be used as propaganda to turn the German people against the Jews.
And it continues. In 1964, they created the Palestinian Liberation Organization and invented this idea of the Palestinian people. And they did that because they wanted to destroy the core pillar of Western civilization in the region, Israel, the resurrection of Israel, which had deep biblical undertones. So they understood that the destruction of Israel was such an imperative to the overall destruction of the West.
So they created the PLO to do that. And they used then the radicalism to infiltrate our universities. And I'm going to stop you right there, not that that's not important, but we've got about seven or eight minutes left, and we have to get in what's happening in Israel right now. And what I'm going to tell you, folks, is this. Everything David's talked about right now, everything I'm telling you, all this history, every bit of it, we have covered here on this program. David and I have covered this information. You would know all of this if you listened to these segments, and you should, because of the impact, not just on Israel, but on our country and the assault on Western culture as a whole. And I mean, you would know all of this, and you can learn it.
You can, you literally will have a PhD in Western culture history and understanding the assault upon it if you listen to all the segments that we've done over the course of the last year and a half. Truly. Absolutely. David, I want to get into what's going on. There's been several things that have popped up. Tell us who Haneghbi is. Haneghbi is, he's the national security adviser of Israel. He's not in the inner cabinet, and he's not particularly close to the prime minister. So despite his position, I wouldn't call him the innermost circle of government decisions, but it is the national security adviser. He is informed about everything, and he tries to make, he echoes the positions of the Israeli government. So when he makes a statement, we should assume it from the statement that he makes that the majority of what he's saying is in fact factual. Or at least an official Israeli statement. It could be deliberate misinformation or whatever. What he is saying is sanctioned by the prime minister and the government.
He will not wander off the reservation. Now to that end, there has been this conversation about negotiations. And tell me where are things right now, because in the midst of those negotiations, I believe Hamas has not relented. Hezbollah has actually increased its activity from normal, and people do need to, again, go back and listen to what we've shared, because Hezbollah and Hamas have been sending missiles into Israel for as long as you and I have been talking about these things. There's never been a complete years-long peace ever.
They do. Even in between the quote-unquote two-year war periods that we talked about a little bit ago here, my understanding is that even during in between those, they would just have flurries of missiles that they would just send. And terrorists. They would send terrorists into Israel and kill Israelis. They would send terrorists into Europe and kill people.
And they would send even things like balloons, happy birthday balloons, 20 of them tied together with incendiary devices to burn down Israeli agricultural fields and so forth. There's never really a true ceasefire. It's an ongoing war. There's never really a stopping of shooting.
There's only a low level burner. But absolutely. So this is going on all the time. So where are we right now that the message sent that was, you know, initially was we're not negotiating, we're not, you know, we're going to act. Then came a follow up to that, oh, well, Qatar is really being helpful to us in negotiations.
Speak to that and speak to because we only got five minutes left about how critical this where we are right now is. Well there are two hundred and twenty five hostages taken by Hamas. Some of them are a few months old. Some of them are 95 years old.
There's 30 children under the age of 10, I think. So this is a horrific situation. Some are dual citizens.
They have American citizenship, German citizenship, so forth. So Hamas is using the hostages very effectively as a tool of manipulation, one, to play the world and try to divide Israel from the world, but second also to delay the Israeli ground invasion. Oh, let's seriously talk about releasing hostages and the Israelis won't invade while these negotiations are on their way and blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. So it's a deliberate stalling attempt by Hamas to try to then get world opinion on their side and and so forth and say, look, we're being reasonable. We're trying to release the hostages, et cetera, as if they're just normal prisoners of war. So there's a lot of that going on. But the Israelis, obviously, being Western country, are very sensitive to these kids and to their hostages and they want to bring them home.
So it is it has some impact. That said, I think the Israeli government is much less. They have a bigger concern, which is the viability of the state and the need to win right now this war. So it's filtered through that principle and the Israelis will only accept so much. As far as Qatar goes, Qatar is a major non-NATO ally, but it hasn't behaved that way, neither to the United States nor Israel.
And in many ways, you see the very difference here. Israel is trying to negotiate to save the hostages. It's trying to negotiate to destroy Hamas, not negotiate. It's acting to destroy Hamas.
Right. Qatar is trying to save Hamas, of course, and it's trying to help Hamas use the hostage situation to do so. It's the primary for one of them, not primary. It's a funder of Hamas. It's an ally with the Turks and when they're against Israelis, it's also works with the Iranians. They play all sides.
So they're very much a problem. My sense is that the Israelis are, to some extent, playing along with the United States. If they can get more hostages out, they will.
And if it's not a big cost, a few humanitarian jectors, it might mean something meaningful in humanitarian terms. But Israel is determined to win this. And I don't think Hamas is going to give up its cards like that when they know the next step then is to unleash Israeli ground invasion, which is probably going to happen anyway. Well, and Israel, as we've discussed, is going to have to make a very strong state. They cannot let either of these entities continue as things have been. Obviously, they are working together to try to wipe Israel off the map. One last thing.
And the reason I bring it up is, I believe Candace Owen went off about this and several others have gone off about it. And that's about this Greek Orthodox Church of St. Porphyrias, that one of the oldest churches in the world is in the Gaza Strip area. And it was reported, just like they did with the hospital, that Israel bombed the church. Now I've got pictures up that clearly show the church is still standing. What have you heard about this? And what do you know real quick?
It is. It's a thousand-year-old church. There was a command center for Hamas as well as a launch site for Hamas very close by. The Israelis used precision-guided munitions that are very accurate and they hit it. And of course, it shook the church because it's not far away, these bombs. And it certainly maybe little pieces of debris wound up in the church courtyard, but the church was not hit. The church is intact.
Anybody in the church is fine and it can continue to function. But again, points to the central problem, which is Hamas uses human shields. It uses Palestinians. The greatest humanitarian crisis is the use of the human shields by Hamas. It uses churches, it uses mosques, it uses hospitals and schools. That is the military structure of Hamas.
They deliberately put command headquarters under hospitals, launch sites in schools, especially elementary schools. This is a big problem and this is a war crime, but this isn't the barbarism you're dealing with. We really are dealing with it. And then the other side to this, and maybe we'll talk more about it with Jeff, but you and I will be talking more about it.
I think I'll get with you and we'll get you back on on Monday because I think a lot's going to happen over the weekend or potentially is going to happen over the weekend. But this is the other part to this too to understand. The people in Hamas have had elections. They elected first Fatah, which was the PLO, and now they elected Hamas in, I think, 2017, something like that.
Yeah. And they also, there were elections that had to be canceled in the West Bank among the Palestinians, Judea and Syria, because Hamas was going to walk away with them. And so the point of this is, is that Hamas was elected by the people in Gaza. They said, this is our government. So when you say, oh, well, the poor guy, look, it's like the people in Germany, honestly, with Hitler or what have you, when you support them and you vote them into office, you're going to bear the consequences for the people that represent you. And that's what we try to tell you here in America as well. You're going to bear the consequences for the people that represent you. And they supported this and they hide them and they cheer for them.
And they cheered when these barbarians came into Israel and did what they did. I got to go. Shirley Dominick's waiting on us. David, thank you so much for being here today. I greatly, greatly appreciate it. There's a lot more to cover. I will. I'll get you back on Monday and we'll do more. Perfect. Okay. God bless you, sir.

When you have different things like cancer and different diseases that are autoimmune related, it can really help with inflammation because you're helping clean the body.
Clanslate is a formula that's made from a natural orthosolic acid that basically is put into a formulation that's naturally occurring that uses different processes from polarization to heating to cooling to different types of catalysts, which will go in the body and really help communicate to get rid of those things that don't need to be there. People don't understand why there's so many autoimmune disorders, but our environment's toxic. The land, air and water have changed. We've been exposed to nuclear war.
And the issue is if there's a nuclear bomb or there's pollution or there's war in country, it actually affects everything up to the stratosphere. So we're all connected and we've really got to clean things out. You can pick up your Clean Slate today at cgrforlife.com. That's cgrforlife.com.

Look, I am for marriage between a man and a woman. I am for life from conception. I am for following the Bible and I believe that our founders started this nation on biblical principles.
I am in support of our military and believe that America should play a role in world security. I believe our Constitution was intended for a moral people and that the Bible contains the only true moral code. I believe we are all born sinners and that God in His grace and mercy sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to die for our sins and that if we will confess our sins, He is just and righteous to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. I believe salvation is not just accomplished in a little prayer, but that it is found in how that transformation is lived out. Jesus is to be the Lord of our lives and we should follow biblical precepts. This is not legalism or works, but a life lived out in love and honor towards the one who died for my sins. Faith without works is dead and is no faith at all. I believe that we will fall and that we need to have a repentant heart and that God will ultimately bring us into perfect action through Jesus Christ, spirit man perfected and soulish man in progress. I believe that we are not to live in guilt and shame when we fall, but we repent and get up and move closer to Jesus. I believe that if our nation will repent and turn from wickedness that God will heal our land.
I believe that as a Christian I must occupy until He comes and that to call evil wicked and to warn about those evil acts is a part of the mandated Christianity. That to love also means to be willing to take the risk necessary to confront a friend with the truth in hopes that their heart will be turned because their life matters, even if it means in that moment they will possibly hate me. It means that I must risk scorn to stand for truth and that I can never sit silently by while evil attempts to conquer the world. God is my everything and Jesus is the love of my life. That does not make me weak but strong, not silent but bold and not fearful but courageous. Therefore if you are my friend, while we may not fully agree, know that I share what I share because I care.
If you strongly disagree with these beliefs they are not debatable for me and you can if you choose unfriend me. I do not say this in anger but in love. I wish for you eyes to see and ears to hear that Jesus Christ is the only way to salvation and that God, not man, gets to decide what is truth, life and the way. God bless you. And welcome back to Children's Generation Radio where no topic is off limits and everything is filtered through biblical glasses. And I'm very pleased and again I ask you to be in prayer for the people of Israel.
Be in prayer for us, again as David and I shared in that segment. There were six million Jews that were murdered by the Holocaust and that's horrific. But as David and I were saying, there were about six to six and a half million who tried to help them that were also murdered that we should not forget. And why?
Because the goal of what's happening right now is to destroy the people who believe in the God of this book right here. That's the goal. And I am grateful for willing warriors. And that is who we want to honor in our next segment is those willing warriors. I want to welcome Shirley Dominick who has been working diligently for the last eight years to really bring a focus to those people and to honor them. So Shirley, welcome. Thank you for being here. Thank you so much, Pastor Greg, I'm so grateful. Thank you. Well, I am grateful for people like yourself who, you know, because the people who jump into these fights, the guys that are jumping on planes to respond as volunteers and go back and fight for the IDF, our soldiers, you know, our nation is replete with the history of young men who said, not on my watch.
Not on my watch. And you know, I know when I joined the service way back in the 80s during the Cold War, you know, we had that mentality, not on my watch. Absolutely, absolutely. So talk to me about what led you to start honoring these willing warriors and give us the definition of what you mean by a willing warrior. You know, and that's really a great question because I think when we started back in 2012, it was, we may have had a different definition of willing warriors. At that time, we were looking at wounded, ill, injured, you know, warriors in themselves that's been uniformed. But, you know, when you look at the big picture of willing warriors, it is the sacrifice that so many in this country have made to keep our freedom as we have it today.
And so it goes beyond even the uniform of those looking at the first responders now that we're even caring for as well. So willing warriors itself, it started back in 2006, and I'll tell you, when our pastor at Park Valley Church, Pastor Barry White, gave a challenge to the small group that go out into the community and just do something for 40 days, you know, find a project, you know, maybe go in and cut the grass for the elderly, you know, go in and clean up a home for, you know, someone that really need and so forth. But our group decided that we would go and visit Walter Reed. And we'll, this is on Christmas time, we'll just take a little, you know, little gift for them. And we took 50 gift bags. But I tell you what, what we learned in that whole process, where we had the party that's supposed to start at four o'clock, we got there at 2.30. And only to find that we had no gift at four o'clock, it was all gone. So what we were left with is just warriors and families had no idea that having three and a half hours later to just talk with them, sit with them, the camaraderie alone, that they were so longing for that we, we made a bond at that night, that I tell you, lasts forever.
That's 2006, where we realized that we had to literally do more. And I always go back to this one picture that I have really etched in my mind, really in my heart. Like every day I think about Oscar, the double amputee that's 19 years old. He was hanging there with my three daughters, and they were like best friends, best friends, you know, connected in no time, because they had now a space where they could actually get together and share and bond. And so that led us to, believe it or not, in 2012, where we actually now have a facility there in Haymarket, Virginia, where we have warriors and their families, they come and they spend about a week respite, where they can actually bond together, relax, rejuvenate, and just change a whole trajectory of their lives, you know, in many cases. So Willing Warriors itself, like you said, it changes face, but the underlining meaning of it all is that heart of serving and being willing to keep our country free. And it is something that we don't take lightly at all. I think when we wake up every day and we go to our nine to five, we go to our nine to five and that's what we do every day, there's a real world that's underneath that that's us fighting for us to be able to do that. And so that's what we're focusing on is caring for those who are serving for us. And the long term impacts, right, Shirley, I mean, you know, when someone gets injured, I know I've learned an awful lot because of the injuries that I suffered. You know, I learned what it's like to try to live life out of a wheelchair in public. And you know, trying to find, I mean, something as simple as trying to find a clean restroom, honest to God. You know, I mean, you know, and and so, you know, and, and we have a lot of young men that have come back from wars over the last 10 to 20 years, whose lives are radically changed and, and, and permanently changed in a physical sense, who need to know and understand that they still have great value, that they can still make an impact that they can still do something. And and that, you know, that that technologies are advancing, and healing is advancing, and and and all of these things, but they need access. And then, you know, what I find is is the probably the most important thing you just mentioned it, you need somebody to come alongside of you and say, Okay, hey, let's get out of bed this morning.
Let's take these first steps, and and get that portion started. How you feeling? How you doing? Are you? Are you?
Are you? You know, you can Can you take a few more steps? Okay, well, okay, let's do that. Or no, not quite yet.
All right, no worries. Let's you know, what you know, what can we do? What what what is possible because I'm not going anywhere. I'm here.
And we're going to walk through this until you're really at the place where you can start doing more of these things yourself. I think it's so huge, you know, it gives hope for those knowing that somebody is, is right there for them, and not going to give up on them. And that's what we want to assure them, that we're here for them.
It's not going to be another Vietnam where, you know, we, we totally disregard your service. You know, we're here to say we have a place for you. And it's one thing to have a physical place, but also to be able to look beyond that. And this is something that we have learned in this whole process is that it's important that spiritual part, because I can give you that physical for a nanosecond.
And all of a sudden, you go back to your real world, and there is nothing. And so one of the things we focus on too, is that spiritual and so we work alongside groups like the Mighty Oaks, that will come in for a week of post traumatic stress training, that we say, you know what, these are combat vets that have been there and they've done that. They understand where they're going, what they're going through. So each one reach one they teach. They know that they have battle bodies that understand where they are and say, I'm not going to give up on you.
I'm here for you. And so that spiritual part is really, really critical. In fact, in the last couple of years, we started baptizing there on site. So those that have gone, and I tell you, just recently, we had one so every quarter, there is what we call a fight camp. So you have a group up to about 25 warriors that will come and they will go through this week program.
But at the end of the day, they have a graduation and at the graduation that day, prior to graduation, we will have an opportunity for baptism. And to see the number of warriors transform, I say transform. And like one of the warriors looked me in the eye and said, I am going back home to tell my family where I'm going to tell my family. And so you know, what's interesting about that it was the excitement of, I really am a new person. I have a team of people that can come alongside me, you know, not just physically, but they teach me the word, they keep me on the path that I need to be on. And so it has been really, really life changing. I said for the warriors, but I would say this to Greg is for the community because the community get an opportunity now to take part in healing these warriors. So I look at even like the trough that they are baptizing, and it was donated by the neighbor. He's on a farm and he said, I have a trough, you know, what does it take to have a baptism?
Okay. And so it's so authentic when you have everybody to say, you know, I can't do this, and I can't do that, but I can do this, you know, and they come in and whatever little or large they can do, they make a difference. So it is so, so humbling, so important, you know, we as a community, I feel now we just have a civic duty to be able to prepare a place. We don't know what's going to happen there in the Middle East.
You know, I know, you know, my heart tells me it's not going to be pretty, you know, it's not pretty. And so but we know that we can do our part here, do what we can do. And so we have, we started out with one house, 11,000 square foot, which we went in and totally renovated. It was built in 1977, my husband and my team built it for their retirement home, and little did we know it was the owner himself. He actually was, he was in the Navy. And he actually worked alongside mental health warriors, and so had no idea, 1977. So I honestly know that things just supposed to be, yeah, and in this sense, I say supposed to be for the warriors, but also supposed to be for us as a community to be able to serve and give back to these warriors and willing warriors.org. I want to make sure we get that said over our audio audience willing warriors.org. Shirley Dominic is with us. Surely when we talk about, you know, this, you have an event coming up the eighth annual black tie event, where's that going to be held?
And how can people participate in that, or even make, you know, donations to support what you're doing? Oh, absolutely. Absolutely. I'm excited already.
Amen. I'm excited already. So it's going to be at Lansdowne Resorts there in Lansdowne, Virginia. And I would say that this is our fourth event there at Lansdowne, and it gets better and better all the time. So I say this, you want to support these warriors, you come out and look for the time of your life. I'm telling you, it is just a fun time for us. Get dressed up, come out, meet some of the warriors that we support, that have been to the retreat, hear their stories, see the impact.
It is absolutely, absolutely amazing. So now when is that? When is that going to happen? It's going to be the 4th of November, 4th of November.
And like I said, it's at Lansdowne, it starts at 5 o'clock. And I would say just come and kick back and enjoy. What I encourage people to do at this time, it is a time of celebration. You know, you look at what's going on in this world. We can focus on the news, but there's a time that we can step back and say, you know what, there's some great things that are happening. There's some beautiful things that are happening. And so to be able to sit right next to a warrior that have been out in combat, and these are people that you have touch and feel by your service, whether you rake the yard, you know, you clean the toilet, you do whatever, but they're there and they want to say thank you.
They just like so humble and so grateful. So yeah, I would love to have you come out and just join us. We have tickets still available. And I tell you, you're going to have a good time.
WillingWarriors.org, you can purchase your tickets there or you can make your donation there as well. Just click on events and you'll see the annual gala. And that's happening on the 4th of November. It looks like there's also something happening at the Bungalow Lakehouse.
Now what's that? The Bungalow Lakehouse, that must have just been added. I guess so. It says the Bungalow Lakehouse, eat, drink, relax, presents, Justin Suede, Sunday, November 12th at 4pm, which is which I guess is another event again. It's another event that's been added and they're actually doing a benefit for us.
So that's another another way to support as well. Yeah. And this big one we're talking about, it's the annual Willing Warriors Gala. An evening to remember at Lansdowne Resort and Spa in Virginia, November 4th, 2023.
And it's easy to get signed up, easy to get tickets, 5pm to 10pm. It is a black tie event, so you're going to have to bust out your suit, right? You can't do that, okay? Mess, dress, whatever it takes, okay? There you go. Yeah, yeah. If you know, what was that line that Denzel Washington used to remember the Titan?
If you don't have one, steal one from a bum. But put on your very best folks. Put on your very best and come out and honor our Willing Warriors and be praying for them as well. You know, you talked about the spiritual aspect of this. And I think when we talk about, you know, injuries and mental health and these kinds of challenges, yes, absolutely. There is the physical body, there's the chemical imbalances, there's all those things. And you know, we can work on those.
And I prefer naturopathy, that's what I've used is naturopathic ways to address that kind of stuff for myself personally. But I'll tell you what, if I did not know and understand the spiritual war that triggers everything else that is associated with everything else, and I had not been given tools to fight that, you cannot fight this fight without the realization that there is an evil that wants to take you out. But that He who is in you, when you've asked Jesus Christ to be your Lord and Savior, I taught on this yesterday on the program at the very end, actually, 1 John 5, He who is in us is greater than He who is in the world, the overcoming, Colossians chapter two, you are complete in Him, Philippians 2 13, He is working out His, He is working in you to will and to do for His good pleasure. You have that, 1 Peter 2, He's given you everything for life and godliness.
No, no. So important. That's a beautiful message, it really is, it really is. And that just brings to my mind, I visited a war, you know, it just, it shakes me when you were saying those scriptures, because I walk into this room, and we really weren't gonna go in because we had seen so much trauma prior to this, it's like, I'm not gonna see it, well, the attendant said, well, we, we had already planned it, are you sure you want to disappoint this warrior, well, we go in, and lo and behold, I, the first thing I noticed was his wife was sitting on his bed, but I realized where she was sitting was almost in the middle of the bed, and I noticed that he reached out his hands to me, and before I could really kind of resolve everything, it was the realization that he only had one arm, he'd lost both legs entirely, and lost the second, he had one arm left, and we stayed in there, we're supposed to be in there 15 minutes, it was over an hour, we sat with this guy, he had three children, and his dad was sitting in a chair, and he said, I've been here two weeks, but what he said was impactful for the group for life, he said, I want you to know that I have my mind, I know Jesus, okay, and this, he said, he said, here's what he said, he said, this two weeks has been the best two weeks of my entire life, is that incredible, the best two weeks of your entire life, and you don't have a leg, or you don't have, and so we walked out of there saying, did he bless us, or did we bless him, I mean, it just was, I'm like, Lord, I thank you, but that guy gave us a revelation for life, you know, when you know Christ, you've got it all, I've got it all, and physical is one thing, but let me tell you, I got my mental out of this.
We're at the end of our time, give me 30 seconds on it, because then we've got to cut, I've got my next guest who's going to be waiting on me, just like you were, and I apologize for that, but go ahead, give me a quick 30 second or 60 second advertisement about what we want folks to do. That was powerful, by the way, I need to share with you my testimony, yeah, I'm going to send that to you, all right, go right ahead. But what I want to say to the community, thank you, first of all, and I want to say too that there is a lot of work still to be done, you know, what was done on the battlefield was done on the battlefield, but it's still carry over, and we need your help, we still need your support, and we are very grateful for you walking arms and arms with us to keep our warriors healthy and happy, and for us to contribute back to them for keeping us safe. So thank you.
Amen. Folks, again, willingwarriors.org, go to the website willingwarriors.org under events, you're looking for the big gala, and if you're in that area, or you can get out there on the fourth of November, it's going to be a beautiful time, just a beautiful time. And even if you can't do that, two other things you can do, you can make a small donation, or large donation, depending on what you're able to do. And you can put this on your prayer list as an organization to be praying for, because as we said, they are advancing the kingdom of heaven and the gospel by encouraging these wounded warriors to these willing warriors to recognize that God does have a plan and a purpose. And if you know my show, you know my story. And you know, that this accident over the last four years, has allowed us to break into ministry in Punjab, India, plant 1200 churches, put in 43 freshwater wells, and establish four sewing schools for widows, all based on the testimony. And every day we add souls and change lives over there. Even as you and I are talking right now, Shirley, there are ministers in ministry that's happening, where signs and wonders and miracles and God is moving over there. And you know, again, it's all predicated right out. It came out of the injuries that I suffered.
God can use us even in our broken state. 100%. All right. Thank you.
Absolutely. We're gonna jump. We'll be back. Dawn Jans joins me on the other side. All right. Thank you.
