I'm not sure what day but reported that five of the state of Florida had more cattle than any other state.

And so it was it was very cowboy organic that I think that the greatest definition of my life for the city cigarette after this negation and bill real well will you people may not realize the old interoperability part of your right, people think of origin as a tourist and beaches but the cattle industry huge in Florida and there's a term I'm sure you're familiar with this where people talk about Florida crackers and if you ever hear that term they came from the cowboys in Florida because I would have a bullwhip and when they work not now maybe one, but the cowboys would have bullwhip crack that whip to move the cows along where they were supposed to go and that's where the name of Florida crackers came from, absolutely and rare breed born and raised in the yeah and yeah how about that in the blood when they are.

Such an encouragement when an RP only of the ministry with us and that's just a testimony to you and your wife and what y'all been able to do to raise three children who love and serve Jesus Christ.

What did that mean there's no greater testimony to have our children love our Savior, so I commend you for doing a great job parenting. Speaking of Jesus, Neil. I also like pro our audience to learn about how our guests came to know Jesus Christ and God use you in such a mighty way, how did that journey began view and had to get your birthday I raised in a home Berkley speaking. I had a good mom. There was some religion in the home but it was a non-Christian and as I was raised or growing up I basically equated Jesus Christ on the same plane as Greek mythology. I did not understand his deity. I certainly did not understand what I had another hurdle that I had to get over that was affected. I was deeply the evolutionary tree at that point in my life when I write in my undergrad work and I was preparing for Gartner in medicine and all my life I had gone out to be a bad idea that love animal always been around a bit.

All of the sciences that I was involved in were just deeply, deeply speed in evolution are going great or say said that the sanctioned related evolution is sadly speaking on the product that and all that. When I was told about the price know that we might years old, never. I just in my mind could not get corrected. Not the God that I heard those believers speak about along with my learning in that deal of evolution but it will go about a white older husband Yuri instead of gearing because he didn't work it in my mind.

I could not make this whole thing work because how I had been taught in evolution of training and just take that place look like David Wright realized it doesn't work and here's the neat way that God orchestrated by salvation.

I do summer job at Walt Disney World the end of my freshman year in college and I was assigned to the character and one of my jobs was to help in the electrical light lead at Walt Disney World. Well it's interesting because they find is the very good-looking people in a given facial part and they great people that look like me you make high and I decide to drive Alice in Wonderland, but in the electrical light gray and it must remove the meat engineering design will be high while the white it was a battery run machine any one of the float are basically my dog was operational. It was great parade all the light targeted run of her small Alice in Wonderland spent on top of that, but I and as God, my very first Christianity was one night after parade. I was guilty of how this all and she looked at me and she said I just feel I belong to Jesus I is is my everybody by the realize that this show is brought to you by generous jobs.

The Bible come to life and I joined nationally for radio host and found a foundation to create life changes when the world traveled from all over the world's religious clutter Christianity's most tragically rich if I don't want to Chris. Aligning alleyways of Nancy's own place that our Savior's birth, see firsthand the Bible to claim Tory Dr. Chris Hughes is a travel on foundation.com for an unforgettable trip last a lifetime time creating a relationship range hearing is in line joint history was made on today's date June 1 American minute with Bill Frederick, the battle of the Republicans performed for the first time on this day May 12 61 for union recruits during the Civil War, said to have been Lincoln's favorite song. It was written by Julia Ward Howe visited Washington and saw the city with military forces camp fires burning, sleeping, and soundly when night.

She wrote her poem which ends in the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea with Lori in his bosom that transfigured you and me as he died to make holy dye to make God's plans for 18885 yesterday. Work world drove the magical white in the magical. I pray for our Wonderland one night she looked at him and told him how Jesus Savior deal. We had a break that got back out and how you came to know Jesus will like I had never been with my knowledge, I never met a Christian that I like in your debate. Then she stepped up and I believe her work exactly where I belong on washed in his blood.

I use my encrypting me that was like a light resided world, but that was the doorway use (with and throughout about a period of the year would call her about once a month you I think that her Christian would defeat her faith in as soon as I would love to come back with the Scripture that would absolutely spread my argument and this was month after month after month different at that particular point in my life I was facing some athletic greens as well as my undergrad work at my knee out college as result of major reconstruction on my left knee changed a lot of what I thought my life look like and I went into the hospital then you would check in the night before and I checked in the night before ran. I called her allergy would you bring me that book and she said what you mean that Beccaria should give me my Bible and so she literally gave the hospital at night Bible and you know like any other book great night and so I opened it up the night before surgery and starting to them. All names of all the things that I've never heard in my life Bible setting it on the spam the hospital bed about, that the anesthesia swamped.

In reality, and that he handed me a paper as I read it in simple terms it basically said you are all about you guys and first time in my life. I thought that in a lot of the witness fit Alice in Wonderland. The became current now in my mind to think about what she said the surgery lasted about six or seven hours contraction percent of hospital Dr. K minute Internet seminary go straight home, don't drive, don't do anything until our next visit and I clearly remember they rolled me out, got in, but go straight Alice in Wonderland house and I'm not boring I said I want to see.

Here and I've heard what you said over and over again about this Jesus made an emotional outburst is 43 years ago I went in your living room. She had no mercy on your knee. And I think the my other leg with Pastor Mike going down. I can remember to get that cool leg behind me. I got the Edgefield in the Bible the Romans Road what we call the road and she showed me that all the documented guide for my mouth the Lord Jesus and God is great that you say and the question was asked do you want you want this Christ suggest other and their living room was number five building preacher. It was a dedicated born-again believer who love the Lord Christ and I gave my life to Christ that living and all I can say is in faith and repentance on that I provided my way.

I saw all the ugliness of my standing by Randy God, saying that it and I invited Christ into my heart. I pray that I remember at this grade.

I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired and Jesus, I'm so and I estimate my life and that night, miraculously, just like Alice in Wonderland obeyed now I belong. I would want the blood and as result that I became and he became mine and I and it was a radical change in my life. My worldview changed overnight.

And now I know sick-happy new preacher old castaway. All things become new bed versus a progressive versus day by day progression and that's what I sure one other me that Friday night that I did not like. I will, I went to Sunday school without a doctor and that I was a mage. I walked into this college-age class was probably going to college. I've never been exposed anything like this before, looked up and be guided was teaching. He was a Sgt., and I thought great day. You need a man to be a person and that this guy talk like a man. He looked like a man like a man and I just I just made for Sunday school class in my life as a new believer, and that after class he gave up meeting at the heard you gave your electric Christ following Friday night.

Yes sir he said you and me are going slowly forward and he said were neglect guilty.

My mother's argument for I respect you and I'm very good night. You make me say one word out and I laughed at that and and I found I down the truck like a wild man or not on the door and there. I'm so night meal and a man and encrypting that little living room the first time in my life I shared Christ and that precious woman broken about her sin fell out of her chair and trusted Christ and him only what is less than a week old Christ and I stole that woman embracing price on multiple she's just like me.

Nobody ever and God began to break my heart for the souls of men and women and girls because I realized what a powerful testimony. Neil and Michelle at one of the primary responsibilities of every Christian is to tell other people about Jesus that we can impact the culture for Jesus. If we don't help people in the culture about Jesus.

And here you hear Neil story were sampled college-age girls, Alice in Wonderland just one night that Jesus was Lord Frager because of that it led to an eventual reality were deal knew that he needed to have Jesus what a powerful testimony also book a week break so you still know Alice in Wonderland oil that is part of that story Alice in Wonderland Walt.

I gave my life right went deaf blind and fell in love with and that the lady that I have been married 41 years later I have the original alley while operating Marriott resort and a powerful testimony and to marry the woman the story my guest today is Neil Hatfield Regis here powerful testimony. It just accentuates the need for every one of us cannot be shamed of Jesus to tell everybody we know what Jesus done brought sharing your testimony was somebody telling what happened to Nila what happened just simply sharing what Jesus is done for you. Any something for everyone of us and we pray every day that the minor path of every day you wake.just pray you, dear Lord, please send my day for me to tell what you done for me. When you do that, got up and somebody. And when the Holy Spirit you just need to have the courage to say I was always tell you Neil Scheer that he would scare the first time he gave testimony Bible tells well to be obedient to the Holy Spirit that he'll have his life around.

My gift Hatfield is one of the greatest, so but no clue why without Wonderland world in Alice in Wonderland, Hatfield amply cowboy did you describe, I just love your story, you have a habit of saying building world changers for the cause of Jesus Christ. We need to do what you mean by that increasing my life. I quickly realized you can't have a head on collision with Jesus Christ and say and God began to build a boat in Hawaii about living champions for the old Christ and as we begin to realize that so many of the great history began with Jim and we began to develop the passion interesting to me. I'm sure there is. I don't find the concept of the American teenager in the world. I don't see that anywhere my life. It seems that our culture is let young people about the well will a thing might be 20 years. Mr. basically do whatever they want and be responsible. I don't see a progression in my Bible child adult and I think that's why first before will let go man you were in conversation charity.

Great your billing will change your passion, the builder generation of young people are examples just like Wonderland will lend his great preachers wrongly believe you and I love testimony like mine.

I was away from anything that I got the grace of God rather a young testimony that they were reached in a time like and that their commitment was so real and palpable that they wanted to be built. Good chance think were seeing that this is the first generation of young people handle a bit better having to pay a price if they make right and I'm not generation that and where we think the bad about people that make him Christ and work for Susan, did by like such a need not real what you talk about preparing young people. I recently had a lady young lady on the show as a college junior jersey and she traveled with an organization value part of life.

Just she speaks about the importance of defending the unborn and and this young lady said college I thought the criticism will become because I was polite. She said that building comparison when people found out she was a Christian, just vicious attacks came both from professors and from her fellow and in Arkansas are prepared for that right is it we are reaping the terrible benefits of the lack of preparation.

Yeah it is bad. So what you think are some of the key well. I love this quick. I really believe that we must teach young people. The use of that reflected the suicidal is fixed. The lack of self-esteem that the Scripture says in Psalm 139, the rate may marvelous are thy works for my soul. Lola Brightwell years ago, the patient that Elizabeth Elliott would yes missionary sleep that day and if you ever heard a lady of elegant grace and peace that the that I'm speaking to you young lady. He said you could not go back to the privacy of your dorm right now and disrobe and look at yourself only beer."

Psalm one 3914 I will praise the bride may marvelous are thy works so low.

Brightwell, Elizabeth Elliott said Ben you are backslidden and crisp bill. I realized our young people don't see their credible value and because they don't see that value they don't understand the beauty nor the value of the biblical family in my Bible training all God created three greatest first with the family and then what government was the chair that the criticalness of the family.

The value of the family of the Scripture and you, be fruitful and multiply wrinkle. As you and I had you been reminded from the beginning creation, God made them male and all man leave his father and mother why going to be 1.1 not man put asunder. These are these are principles that need to be taught young the and by the way they quickly clear up the in the sexual insanity in our culture. Dr. Bailey Smith will be your friend by years.

Bailey would travel.

Yet many got me title that message.

It in America and it was just talk about the insanity of so I think there there.

Now you hypocritical people. I think them understanding the God called the greatness of the biblical family of God.

I really believe young people the incredible power of the church of the Lord Jesus Christ, and make they don't see the relevant church. Many of our young people compartmentalize their so-called all it is our King block 11 hour, two hours a week and yet this PhD upon this rock I will build my church to help villages.

I was years ago. Christian professional standing up. He said I want you having any set I want you to imagine the part of the bride of Christ being at the gate of hell taking Matt battery and bashing the gates of hell backwards and then he said that is the call of the mighty church of the Lord Jesus Christ and what you would see what I got to work, the church hasn't been the battery and you need to know that there is mighty power in the church of the Lord Jesus Christ. That was another thing that so critical and [this generation needs to see and understand that the God-given all of their work may be their vocation and how critical that it become a market business. Just the other day, the owner of the business that yet.

He called young men thing that I didn't work. He said were right that nobody thought this young man how critical a work yet, given how valuable work is 1031 when therefore you all.that'll be the young people with their God-given all I love watching me.

What are the man. I believe those are definitive things that we must think young people, and we've got people they are the great missionary for this generation. Chris headed more than likely the project.

My life, I would be in but somebody young woman.

Now all Proverbs 2980 W carriage analysis in the year. This work but needed the law work wall on the word of God to keep the law you are not tomorrow.

Is there the year that you are a and and we've got to build a world lost the my Bible to find data showed great joy to go for a very precious each practice this up by saying Alice in Wonderland my bride. She stalled the passion and she understood missionary date date the wall and yet she never lost the compassion for my whole I purchased young people friends don't let friends die and to exemplify my life just staring at her with her next generation.

People have ever met and he is scared why when they first met.

They were dating work missionary day, but she told him about what you've done in her life. Friends don't let friends die and go to hell and women talking about the biblical truth that need to be shared with young people today deal with just about time today you share with your thoughts about what you call upwards way I would like to week we have baby but we cottage feel in young people to work with Ebersole based on one of those simple grades never quit. If you're around our summer college interns say bad about never quit never quit some of that was instilled in me. In my past that led times.

Just knowing that you keep going regardless of the circumstances, but it's just another way that you never quit. What is next great we think them to be regularly late late that flies like brick and and that along with that principle. This is what our staff care of all our mail by the mentor if they are served with intern read it. Your workday starts at 8 o'clock.

We watched Richard basket 754 8 o'clock to begin the work and they look at you like, man, I've never when you put the expectation now it's the right and I love it.

Another one. Certainly not original with populist cheap action. We just want young people do young people are integrity and that their Christianity is not mere words. Like live day by day. I borrowed this works prohibition by we teach them at all of our successes or questions at all about prayer failures. A big part of what we do anyway to work with people we teach them incredible power of prayer that we have the role of God and that I love watching people embrace better or grab that kids need to see the day.

The prayer really is important, and parents. Listening and grandparents. Your kidney to Ukraine daily. They need to know that you don't do anything without talking to God first. Just this morning I will get from where my daughter is in a couple days and she asked me earlier, you will what would you do and sought him however try to be careful and kids grow up. Need to make some of their own decisions that affect your whole why, but I told her I can't question you operated what I think not.

And I think kids need to realize the importance of everything every single thing we do need to be bathed in prayer this morning to grade dollars that our kids are all about and and their spouses as a medical I would you pray with me about this is that you get near it and I want you want that power funds are interrupted your kid to an entity make the Blackbeard basic but we develop if you put up if you drop it if you mess to clean it up dirty water and that we met incredible summer program about all I think they're going into the state and we were giving them the staff for where your water close and they both looked at each other.

They were brothers. How do you want to watch the little guys that I'm not your mama and measure your about that little weight will be a group of young people multiple teenagers fired all added up marginally out one jumped up to. I just thought that they live with what Amanda was instability my life at Tennessee W. Murphy many years ago that everything all I will raise up and they need understanding, responsibility, leadership, and there's a cost leadership and the next thing would be that you think like a ball of who will say that over and over again was oldest pastor at Sally seminary program called think like a ball that the Danish were not dealing with children at risk of dealing with adult electrical and and not living in that agent America the last two arrival date that that's all that matters all that mattered if it will follow you for Arrival and man with great passion like a horrible discrete age registered 60 will and we teach that if you're like thing will matter to become a great/open dated younger you finish well and that's my car for me well and I know what you mean here my kid the other day that you pray almost like the Bible. Jan certainly had my share of failures in my life that I'm just praying that God give me one you one more chance to some great show. You have always been retiring your tyrant, yet we never entirely for Jesus but like you said, well, after a couple minutes with you to real quickly to share about your camping ministry how people, I gave my back.

Almost immediately, we began working with the winners Would get people from our church and God just broke my heart that you and a lot of energy working with young people generate college-age and that probably is one is best for I'm I'm really over this Chris two summers ago we crossed the great Mark did not consider our journey we don't work with large.

Found that the smaller groups more reporting Streeter we crossed that 100,000 young people to come through our Great Britain over the last, and that it is just real they called it the summer of love in the 60s hundred thousand people gathered smoke go idealistic rebel against the Scriptures. They let that love that they change the face of Europe and America and I'd always fall more.
