The Horse Of God

Take The Lord With You Wherever You Go
March 17, 2019 • Jordy Bloodsworth
From the murky swamps where alligators make their home to the glorious sunrise where there are signs everywhere that all kinds of fish are hiding, but it’s not just about fishing…it’s the love of boats and the love of God’s beautiful nature that has soothed the soul of Jordy Bloodsworth. Since he was very young, a passion for helping others was instilled in Jordy since he was a child. Suddenly, at the age of 12, he found himself personally immersed in a sea of devastation when his family lost EVERYTHING in Hurricane Katrina! This changed Jordy’s priorities in life. Thank God for his passion of helping others! In the past few years, some of the most severe flooding has ravished the Southeast coast. From duck boats to kayaks…a homegrown squad known as the Cajun Navy was formed. It was their conscience and love of neighbor that summoned this makeshift flotilla into traitorous currents to carry endangered citizens to higher ground. This makeshift flotilla became known as the Cajun Navy and is credited with rescuing more than 10,000 people from flooded homes and rooftops! The Cajun Navy will not stand by and watch other suffer, struggle and fight for their lives. Just like in the book of Jeremiah (2012), “The Lord is with them like a mighty warrior!” Take The Lord With You Wherever You Go...that's our Focus!
Mary: Our Ever-Present Mother
January 6, 2019 • Fr. Anthony Odiong/Meghan Schexnayder
Fr Anthony Odiong will put Mary back into Focus by attesting that Mary the Mother of God is the most powerful woman in the world because she leads us to her son, Jesus. We must trust and honor her, because she knows, loves and watches out for each of us, just her she did for her Son. Jesus entrusted his Mother to all of us as our ever-present Mother! The Virgin has been appearing in Medjugorje since 1981. Since then, more than 40.000.000 people from all over the world have traveled there! Fr Anthony has personally traveled there himself. In October 2018, Meghan Schexnayder, who was suffering from terminal cancer, accompanied him on this particular pilgrimage. Meghan returned and witnessed with joy to her rekindled faith and her renewed trust in God. In an excerpt from Our Lady's message dated 12/25/18, she said, "I am with you to protect you and lead you towards eternity." Three weeks after that message, Mary, Our Ever-Present Mother, lead Meghan to her son and laid her gently in his loving arms.
