After much urging from brothers and sisters in Christ, we humbly share the following with you. Our dear friend helped write this to set up this campaign for us, but I asked to be the one to share it as I didn't want her name publically put out there, considering the following that happened to our family.
 
We have seen, especially over the last few weeks and months, that our 1st amendment rights are being attacked on every front. That is exactly what has happened to Chris Zimmerman, the Republican Party Chairman of Nye Co, NV, Christian, my husband, father of 4, and friend to many. In our brave new world of a one-party government, a person doesn’t dare speak their mind or share their thoughts if those thoughts go against the party line. Your name can be smeared across social media and the mainstream news. Should you dare to step out and speak up you can and likely will be knocked down and “put in your place”. This goes way beyond who will be the next president or even anything political. 
 
After the election, believing he still lived in a nation where free speech was upheld, he sent a letter to the republican base in his area to, never envisioning it for anyone outside his rural area. Upon reading Chris’ piece, enthusiastic and supportive readers sent it outside of the group to share the encouragement with others elsewhere. A member also posted it to the local Republican group page. The letter landed in the hands of the AG and governor of NV,  and 2 state Senators, who decided that Chris’ opinions didn’t fit their preferred narrative. They deemed his piece unacceptable and decided that he must pay for his sin of continuing to support President Trump and they are working hard to make sure he pays dearly. Senator Cortez and Senator Lee, of Nevada, wrote a letter encouraging the FBI to investigate the letter and situation. 
 
As you can imagine, Chris has been labeled as everything negative under the sun. In response to all of this and Chris being cautious to protect his family, he has sought out legal counsel. Our lawyer has plenty of experience in high profile, 1st amendment causes and will do all he can to help us. While Chris is thankful and relieved to have someone in our corner to help, he is overwhelmed by the costs and how to pay them. 
 
That is where you all come in. We are asking for those who are Christian or not, who love freedom, who value their constitutional rights, to:
1. Pray for Chris, his family, and for this great nation. This is most important.
2. Donate sacrificially to help the defense of this godly peace-loving man, and
3. Spread the word about Chris and his plight to freedom-lovers everywhere, giving them the opportunity to step up and aid their brother.
 
We thank you tremendously, on behalf of Chris, who often gives sacrificially to help others. Chris is a dedicated husband and father, who is dedicated in all he does for our family, brothers and sisters in Christ, our friends, our community and even the stranger he just met. For those who know Chris, know he is a strong man, who stands firm on his faith and beliefs. This has definitely rattled him (and us all), but he will still stand, knowing that his strength comes from Christ Jesus.  
 
We are living by these verses right now:
 
"Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest." Joshua 1:9
 
 "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose." Romans 8:28
 
"I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me." Phillipians 4:13

We are overwhelmed by the prayers, support and kind words from so many. We are truly humbled by all of this.

In HIs Love,
Jen (on behalf of the whole Zimmerman family)

First of all, I want to thank those who have prayed for us and and who have given to our campaign. We are so appreciative of the donations. I wish I could give details of all that has happened, but can tell you we have met with our lawyer several times and Chris had a voluntary interview with officials. Our burdened hearts over the past several weeks has been eased a bit. We are working to repay the money we had to borrow for our lawyer,  and to focus on our family healing. May God bless you and your family!
