Independence Day

Independence Day

 

At the park

This past fourth of July, John [JJ] personally took the Media Van out to the local park, just up the street from our base. Over the course of the afternoon, John played twelve different videos about our Christian American heritage that praised the presence of God in America’s history. With the parade and picnics going on all around the Media Van, there weren’t many bystanders who didn’t get a view of it. God made his face visible and voice heard in the park that day, and the event went well on into the evening.

Freedom of Speech

Just before all this happened, we doubted whether we’d even be allowed to play these things in a public park without permission. So after reluctantly going to see the local park administration and ask if it was possible, we had to wait a day or so with no answer, because they had never dealt with something like the Media Van before. Doubts and discouragement didn’t sway our faith though. And on July 3rd, we got the confirmation that we could go without a permit! God literally put John and the van out there for Independence Day. Praise him!
