From the Apple Capital: Seeds of Change!

Two hundred inspired and passionate protestors turned out for the Rally in Wenatchee, WA (pop. 30,000), despite threatening thunderstorms.
Our amazing speakers included Dr. Mitch Garrison, Natalie Merrill, Karlo Broussard, Shiloh Schauer, and State Representative Cary Condotta, each offering a unique viewpoint and the fire of their conviction and commitment.
Pastor Bob Shepard prayed our invocation, and Pastor Pat McElroy offered a closing prayer. Patriotic music and hymns were led by the John Black Singers.
The Rally concluded with the jubilant crowd singing our National Anthem, followed by the release of red, white and blue balloons into the gray and blustery skies. The imagery of a great storm brewing gives us great joy, because the Lord is with us and will use the storm to water and nurture all the seeds for change sown today!
By the way, if anyone thinks there is a “War on Women” being occasioned by the opposition to the HHS Mandate, why are there so many women and children at our Rallies? Please enjoy the photos of our diverse community – ALL ages, genders and ethnicities — with excellent footage to follow!
