On average, 99 young people between the ages of 12 and 24 die every day in the United States.
“THE 99” is a symbol based on statistics from the National Center for Disease Control.
The 99 is a walkthrough theater that graphically reenacts the five leading causes of death in teenagers and young adults. Many of these deaths are influenced by drugs or alcohol and a vast majority of them can be avoided.
The 99 is state-of-the-art production designed to portray the very real consequences of poor decisions that claim almost 37,000 young lives every year. The production is not based on fear or scare tactics, but rather is based solely on reality with each room designed from real life situations.

IMPACTING LOVE INC TESTIMONY
I’m asked by many people to share how IMPACTING LOVE INC began, so my purpose is to encourage every believer to not just go to church week after week and missed the command Jesus gave us in Matthew 28. We know that to be the Great Commission. Many in the body Christ struggle with identity and their purpose in life and ministry. Its not about a “title, denomination or association, but its simply reading (studying), obeying and applying Gods word to our lives
In 2004 I dreamt that I was ministering in a foreign land. I saw myself in a hut with no walls and in an open field on a platform with people surrounding. In the dream their was a Caucasian man who I did not know. I shared the dream with my pastor and thought it was “just a dream”.
In November 2006 I attended a conference with my pastor in Clearwater, Florida and on the elevator a couple from Oregon entered. My pastor introduced us but the man Paul looked familiar. I asked, have we met before? His reply was not sure but thought that I looked familiar too. I told my pastor that I met Paul before. He replied that he had just met him the prior year. Now this was a four day conference and throughout the conference I would say to my pastor, I dreamt this! It was déjà vue over and over. I was annoying to my pastor because I was so adamant that I knew this Paul guy too.
This particular evening Paul invited me to eat dinner at the table with him and apostles from all over the world. It was good food and great time of fellowship. While walking to service, Paul asked if I would sit with him and his wife Pam. I had no idea that Paul was the speaker for the evening and that he would share with the church the work God had given me to do. He talked about Priests and Kings in the kingdom of God. The message was to me and for me. After service he asked me: Do you like to travel? My response was yes. My wife and love cruising. They smiled and he said: how would you like to go to Africa? Instantly, I realized where I met Paul. He was the man in the dream. Paul, Pam and I would spend time talking about Uganda, Africa and the work God had given him to do. I heard their hearts as they shared the culture and love for Gods people. In December 2006 I was on my way to Uganda, Africa for 23 days. Since then, God has allowed me to bring teams to Uganda representing six different churches. God has also opened doors in South Africa, where we’ve built and planted churches.
Please call if you would like to hear about what God is doing in Uganda, Africa and Soweto, South Africa. I am available to come and share with your mission teams and church. Do you want to be apart of what God is doing in other nations? Just ask! We have an opened door.

Profile on 300 kids for sponsorship from the states to attend school. Many of the kids will walk to school one and half hour and and then walk back home. How could a parent have peace knowing that their child must walk in the dark through the bush and then back in the dark depending on what season it is. The team of five, divided into three teams and for four days we walked and walked into the bush to meet the students and their families. Transportation was limited, which meant we had to walk up hills and through self made paths. My asignment was to get personal and family contact information. All the students needed monies for school fees and praise God, all the kids received sponsorship
This little angel whose birth name I can’t remember but the translation of her name means Grace. She asked me to pray for Gods grace upon her family. Need I say more. This baby was not old enough to attend school but understood the power of prayer.
As I read and study Gods word, many times I try to invision the surrounding’s of the narrative. I seek to understand the intent of the author, to whom he is speaking to and the culture at that time. The journey of Moses life has always been intriguing. His birth, adoption, raised as a king but born a peasant. Ran for his life, just to save others. I can go on and on but here I am getting on a small boat, to travel down the Nile River. I can’t wait to get to Israel to walk where Jesus walked!
