~Isaiah 6:8 ~ Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us: Then said I, Here am I; send me. (Jonathan's favorite verse)

Jonathan & Olivia's father (Ben) grew up in a loving, Christian home. I (their mother) was raised quite the opposite. My stepfather told me he was the only God I needed to know, but that was far from the truth! I received the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior at the age of 17.  We were married 3 years later, this year celebrating 40 years. 

We determined to raise & dedicate our children to the Lord and by  the grace of God He blessed us with 8 beautiful children (4 boys, 4 girls). 

In Deuteronomy 6:6-9, the Lord shows us how He desires us to raise our children.  We didn't want them to make the same mistakes we did. As part of that decision we home-schooled our children and taught them to love the Word of God and used it as their primary textbook.  As Ben comes from an agricultural background, we focused much of our schooling on farming as well as history.  Wallbuilders Curriculum, "America's Godly Heritage" was a pivotal tool in teaching History. We took many vacations visiting Historical sights of American History and the founding of it. This is one of the reasons Jonathan & Olivia have such a love for this country.  It breaks their hearts as it does millions of Americans to see the decline of America & the trampling of the Constitution, which is our God-given birthright. 

On January 5th, by invitation of the President, our family traveled to D.C., along with many others. On January 6th, after listening to President Trump speak, he invited the American people to go with him to the Capitol to peacefully protest our grievances against a stolen election. When we arrived at the Capitol we were met with a chaotic scene of C.S. gas grenades, rubber bullets being shot at the crowd along with people being beaten with batons by the Capitol Police. The scene was indescribable! The disappointment & betrayal by the park police & the orchestrators of the days events, which we now know were our own government, was more than the people could bear. All we had were one another. 

A few people have questioned why Jonathan & Olivia were dressed in military camo and could they be Feds? First of all, I can assure you they are NOT Feds but American citizens ready to protect one another.  We had all seen the destruction of what Antifa had done to the city weeks prior as a few of us had been there as well, praying at the Supreme Court, for our country. We had determined we were not going to allow innocent people to be attacked by Antifa at the rally on January 6th, 2021. 

In Jonathan & Olivia's youth, while street preaching they learned to fearlessly proclaim the mysteries of the Gospel & see people come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, which is their passion.  They carried this passion into many different ministries including missionary work in Guyana, Guatemala, Disaster Relief Organizations, orphanages, Bible Schools, etc.. Olivia has been involved in Prison Ministry for many years with her sisters and father, sharing the love of Christ and the hope we have in Him. 

They were both  raised on a farm and are not afraid of hard work. This work ethic carried on into their livelihoods; Jonathan with Ironwork & welding and Olivia with painting & home repair. God's given them both creative abilities & are both amazing artists in their fields and when they're together it's even more awesome!

As they're in their fiery furnace now, we know that God can protect them as He has done their entire lives, Hallelujah!

We want to invite America to join in their latest mission endeavor to be full-time Christian Missionaries in the Federal Prison System until the Lord changes destinations.  Through your prayers, Jonathan, Olivia & the entire family have been overwhelmed with God's grace. Please continue to pray as all of the J6 families are walking through the valley of the shadow of death and we all need your prayers. 

Note: Any donations will be to help Jonathan & Olivia with commissary or whatever they may need during this time. 

~ Psalms 27:11-14 ~ Teach me thy way, O Lord, and lead me in a plain path, because of mine enemies. Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies: for false witnesses are risen up against me, and such as breathe out cruelty. I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and He shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD. (One of Olivia's favorite passages.)

We are grateful and humbled by all the support for Jonathan, Olivia and our family! 

We are blessed to be able to talk with them most days and hear how the Lord is answering prayers. There has not been a prayer that the Lord has not answered and they are continually thanking everyone for the constant prayers because the Lord hears every one. Some of the answered prayers are  Safety (in certain very unsafe situations, which are many), opportunities to share the Love of God, shoes, even a simple cup of coffee  . We are extremely grateful for the overwhelming outpouring of love by the inmates that Jonathan and Joseph (Hutchinson) received when they arrived at the (J6) pod in DC. We will never stop praying and speaking out on behalf of all of the POW's until they are home. 

~Ephesians 6:19-20~ And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel, For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.

Olivia, at this time, is the only J6 inmate in the Women's Pod in DC and is in General Population. Although this could be a dangerous area at times, God has given her grace through it and she's praying for new opportunities to share.  She and a few ladies were able to have a  Bible Study and prayer time this morning which she was so  grateful for. They didn't have much time but thankful for the time they did have. Her prayer is that it would turn into an ongoing Bible Study/prayer time.  

Jonathan & Joseph are praying for more room for the Bible Study they are a part of. The room they are in now is filled to capacity, hallelujah! Praying it will continue to grow and that the men will be encouraged to hear God's Word and find hope in Him, which is our only hope. 

~II Corinthians 5:20~ Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God.

Letter from Olivia:

I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the Land of the Living.           ~ Ps. 27:13-14~

Greetings from a prison cell, This has become one of my theme verses this past year as it speaks so true to me. The only thing that gives me strength and hope is that I HAVE seen His goodness in the land and because of that, I will not faint! I'm currently sitting in a Max Security cell, unable to leave for the 3rd day now, with nothing to listen to but the cries and screams of the mentally insane that occupy the other cells around me, as I wait for transport to DC. However, I had a few answers to prayer: I finally got a Bible!!, they turn the lights down at night (unlike the last place) and I got a piece of chocolate cake!! It's the little things in here.  I have been reading Psalms and came across Ps. 146:7 "Which executeth judgement for the oppressed: which giveth food to the hungry. The Lord sets the prisoners free!  As I read I thought, not necessarily freedom in the physical sense as freed from jail on our time but Spiritually Free, in that our hope is no longer in the world and the things or people in it, but in Christ alone who has set us Free indeed, through His Son. Freedom from the cares of this world for they are fleeting. Freedom from death and sin through his blood.  Freedom from the hand of the wicked through the power of the Holy Ghost. He knows and created every hair on our head and we can call upon and recognize the God who cares for even the sparrow, how much more for His child. I have prayed God lead me every step, one step at a time and light my path and give me strength to walk it. He WILL place us where He needs us.  I pray God gives me the wisdom and strength to be used no matter where I am. With Christ we are more than conquerors. He has given the Angels charge over us that not even our foot will be dashed upon a stone if not His will. In Psalm 35 it tells of the Lord fighting for us against our enemies, being our help, putting to shame those that wrongfully attack us....But it also says "I will thank you in the Great Congregation, in the mighty throng I will praise you." He may have allowed this in my life just so I could praise Him in the great congregation. The whole nation is watching and waiting for us to fail. Laughing at us, saying, "Where is your God now, you lost, you're in prison!" but had it not been for this trial we would not have had the platform to praise him in the "Mighty Throng!" The world is dying for a Saviour and we have the answer. With God you can truly walk in the shadow of death and not be afraid. He has given me true peace where I'm at.

We have been given an amazing country, the likes of which no other people have known, one founded with its trust in God. But we have long lost that trust and have given it to man. My prayer is that the Christians in America will start shouting His praise from the roof tops and making His goodness known. We've got to stop being dumb and deaf to the ways of the Lord. Pray for Revival in this land and God to heal our nation again. If we as Christians don't do it, no one can, because true Justice and Truth only come from the Lord. We have been slack far too long in upholding the principles this nation was founded upon. As long as there is breath in our lungs, no matter where we are, we have a job to do and a purpose for living. To proclaim the Lord God who created, loves and died for us!! For his is good and GREATLY TO BE PRAISED!! 

Sing to the Lord, Bless His name; shew forth His Salvation from day to day, declare his Glory among the heathen, His wonders among all the People. ~Psalm 96:2

We've been sharing with Jonathan and Olivia about all the gifts given and prayers that all of you have been sending up for them.  They and our entire family have felt very blessed and loved by your support. 

Please continue to pray that the truth will continue to come forth about what really happened on January 6th so  that justice will prevail for all of the J6 families.  

~Psalm 27:13-14~ I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.
