Dear Friends,

Our TEAM TOT TOY DRIVE begins on Tuesday, December 7th through Friday the 17th. We are seeking new unwrapped toys for youngsters in the Los Angeles area. The toys you donate will be given to a children's hospital, churches and various charities around town. Our Toy Drive will be the 22nd year we've requested your participation. Your love will be remembered by poor children for the rest of their lives, by the enjoyment they'll receive in playing with their new toys! Seeing a smile on a youngster's face is a delight that can melt anyone's heart!

Please contact our office at 323-350-5759 during these 10 days. Please leave a message if we're out of the office or the phone is busy. Your call will be returned as quickly as possible, so we can schedule the time we can pick up your donation.

Truly, we want to thank you for helping these children - especially this year of all years, since the Toy Drive began many years ago. May God truly bless you  for the compassion and kindness in your offering -  by giving a toy for Christmas.

Thanks again for your continuous support - by helping others in need.

Dear Friends,

The past 2 years has seen the rise of business closings throughout America. I'm truly saddened this is the case as the pandemic, online shopping, fierce competition and government bureaucratic interference in the marketplace are considered the main causes for brick and mortar establishments to close their doors - permanently. Just the other day I went shopping at a neighborhood store and their shelves were empty. It seemed to me that I was the only customer to enter the store. I am also saddened by the closure of several favorite restaurants around town.

The chronic lockdowns and the mandates imposed by State and Local government operatives, has eliminated the business environment and the consequences of their actions are devastating. Small business owners have been hit the hardest. The steep uncontrollable rise of inflation will create circumstances that will allow the destruction of a free enterprise system as we've known throughout American history.

Is a Depression on the horizon? This is a concern voiced by various economists with the rise of goods and services and mandatory lockdowns of numerous industries. Regrettably, the lives of poor and middle class Americans have been impacted by unwise financial decisions orchestrated by mandates, the menace of incompetence and the lack of basic common sense by government bureaucrats. I wish the current state of affairs was not meant to be, but sadly, it is.

During this time in life and those of my family and dearest friends, the power of prayer is our only hope to end the chronic nightmare that has attacked America. One day soon, we will live under a law abiding harmonious system. The respect for our neighbors by speaking the truth, is a concept that will restore the human condition by eliminating deceptive practices of powerful individuals and entities. That day is around the corner, as we must never lose hope!

Thanks again for your continuous support - during these challenging times in America - a nation under siege.

Dear Friends,

Of all the years that I have celebrated Thanksgiving, this holiday may not be a Happy one. Let me explain. The celebration in which Americans are grateful for living in a country that embraces Christian values and fundamental civil liberties embodied by freedom, is no longer accepted as the foundational doctrine of a Democratic Republic by powerful authoritarian forces. The chronic attempts to eliminate principles rendered for the preservation of this country and our protection from malevolence in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, are under assault. This entire scenario need not have happened, as the truth has been - and is being revealed daily, by those falsely portraying to love this country. The unmasking of an evil scheme to destroy this nation from within has frightened and grieved true Americans.

Looking back, I have always enjoyed this wondrous day. I will always fondly remember my first Thanksgiving in 1966. This was the year our entire family was reunited since escaping Communist Cuba in April of 1962. My brothers and I were separated from our beloved parents for over 4 years, as our pain and suffering was alleviated during the Summer of 1966 when the nightmare finally ended. Throughout the years, my dearest family and friends have invited me for dinner. On this day, many Americans are truly grateful for the ability to give thanks for the blessings one has humbly received, by the Almighty Grace and Mercy bestowed by a loving God. I am truly grateful and appreciate everyone that assisted our family years ago. Without question, numerous Americans have fought and sacrificed their lives in battle so we can appreciate our lives by giving thanks. My experience, is just a microcosm of the numerous accounts of love, respect and dignity Americans afforded others in need and especially on this magnanimous day.

The tumultuous events that have transpired since the onslaught of the pandemic, has caused great and lasting harm to one's emotional and financial health. While this is true, I will not be despondent nor disparage others on Thanksgiving Day. I'll look up above and offer my heartfelt appreciation for living in freedom for at least 59 years out of my 66 years of life.

The future of America is only known by Our Almighty Father. Is it his will for America to live under oppression - to live under Socialism or Marxism?  A clue that will answer this question will be known when we are surrounded by our family and friends at the dinner table on Thanksgiving Day. I'm old enough to know, to trust God and have faith in him for the liberty, freedom and the healing spirit we require - to live in peace.

Thanks again for your continuous support - during these challenging times in America - a nation under siege.

Dear Friends,

Many Americans remember the assassination of President John F. Kennedy on November 22nd, 1963 in Dallas. I was only 8 years of age at the time and I recall the reaction of the Sisters at the Catholic boarding school where I lived, located in Detroit. The shock and trauma of everyone in this country was unceasing. What happened on that sad day, still has repercussions 58 years later as America is no longer the nation of promise, civility and endearment. That day changed America forever. Today, the Democratic Party of 2021 is a far cry from the ideals of the Democratic Party of 1963. The current ravages of hate, pessimism, crime and division has risen exponentially to a level rarely known to exist.

At his Inaugural speech delivered on January 20th, 1961, President Kennedy conveyed a most memorable address to the nation by imploring the American people to "Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country." This call for Americans to become active participants in assisting their neighbors through the spirit of patriotism, is a concept that has lost its passion and credibility by a surge of leftist control of of one's personal sovereignty. This nation is under attack by forces that will never accept President Kennedy's recommendation for humility. Regrettably, the administrators of 2021 have forfeited the moral authority and legitimacy in requesting America's citizens to become involved or cooperate in government efforts of questionable values, as this would inevitably marshal a path towards America's perdition.

Thanksgiving is just a few days away, when we are truly grateful by the love we give Our Lord for the sanctity of our lives and the freedoms we must never take for granted. Unfortunately, the disconsolate attempts to abolish one's civil liberties in 2021, has ironically empowered Americans to end these attempts by reinforcing the civil liberties and freedoms ascertained in the Constitution by a revival of the human spirit.

While President Kennedy's legacy is remembered by his intellect, competence, wit and humor, Americans at times are eager to turn the clock back to simpler, less stressful times. If we were back in the 1950's, I imagine this would be the decade to satisfy our inclinations. Nonetheless, the dangerous times we live in today, will one day become a distant memory. President Kennedy would have wanted all Americans to 'preserve, protect and defend' the Constitution by restoring the principles of living in liberty and freedom. The guidance of Our Dear Lord through the power of our prayers to overcome manifestations of evil in America, will indeed be answered. May God help us all!

Thanks again for your continuous support - during these challenging times in America - a nation under siege.

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Last Sunday I viewed a profound and important message with regards to the current circumstances that are threatening the lives of all Americans. Dr. Charles Stanley's sermon incorporated the true concerns God fearing and discerning Americans have with the oppression that surrounds our daily lives. Never in American history has an authoritarian force controlled the lives of its citizens in such a pernicious manner. The politicians and their supporters that have forsaken the security and freedom of its citizens, have created turmoil and despair for everyone  to suffer its malevolent wrath. Judeo - Christian values are no longer respected, as America's culture has been excoriated by vacuous attempts to change the purpose and meaning of living in harmony and in peace.

Dr. Stanley's message offers us the direction on how to sustain our faith under the most egregious circumstances. In his sermon there are REMNANTS throughout America - as we are God's children empowered to end the fear and the agony that has permeated this country. As REMNANTS, our participation and association with others in numbers through the awesome power of prayer, will indeed help to end the scourge of oppression America is facing. Prayer with humility - will be heard by Our Almighty God.

I strongly recommend viewing the sermon, as a nation founded on Christian principles so many years ago, will provide the peace required to end the evil of hatred and division, that has torn this nation apart. The time to pray for America, has arrived.

May God continue to bless America.

Thanks again for your continuous support - during these challenging times in America - a nation under siege.
