Standing UP in Charleston, SC
Posted by Patricia Vitkovic (June 11, 2012 at 11:00 am)
It has rained for 4 days here in Charleston, but this morning was beautiful.
As our FREEDOM CHOIR started singing the National Anthem , the voices from the crowd joined in and the sound was amazing! The RALLY BAND added just the right sound for everything!
Our “MC” for the RALLY was Mike and boy did he keep the crowd on their toes! Of course, Cathy, lead us all in our favorite chant… hey, hey, ho, ho, the MANDATE has got to GO!
I could write a book on our Speakers! Each shared their personal experiences on how the HHS Mandate will effect their LIVES and their FAITH. From a small business owner, to a law student, 4 Pastors, Radio Talk Show Host, and so many other walks of life, they each encouraged us and lifted us in Prayers!
God Bless everyone who gave the past 6 weeks to organize our RALLY.
But MOSTLY, we thank all of Charleston and the surrounding area, who came out today to STAND UP with us. 700 of you representing God’s Will for us all.
I leave everyone with this thought:
For it is by seeing and knowing their Savior, that will lead the “people” into wanting to protect RELIGIOUS FREEDOM. God is with us and the PROMISE of the Holy Spirit moving over the crowds will bring great glory to HIM.
Thank you for letting me have the opportunity to serve with you in this battle.
No matter the numbers, or what the Press, friends, co-workers or your family might say— DO NOT hang your head in defeat or gloat in worldly accomplishments. Our SUCCESS, our VICTORY is in a Risen Savior, no more no less.
