A Twist on 4 July – Pilgrim forefathers share the Secrets of Freedom [and how to lose it] – Our Families are Worth Fighting For

In his movie documentary, Monumental, Kirk Cameron discovers that the pilgrim forefathers left a monument that not only gives tribute to what was accomplished in America… but how they did it! A blueprint that if we ever forgot, would show us the way back to what made America great; what made America free, prosperous, peaceful and successful. No matter where we live, this is a message we all need to hear. If you are concerned about where your country is today [not just America] this movie for you. It is the secret for freedom (and also how we can lose it). Watch (15 minutes) or the Monumental Movie Trailer, then share this secret with your sponsored child, along with your 4th July family photos and some of these fun ideas – FREE colouring pages, puzzles, posters, crafts – for kids.

Is the American church stirring with revival?   “When… there’s nothing you can do humanly speaking, you still can appeal to heaven.’ And George Washington grabbed this, put it on a flag and flew it over all the naval ships… It spread through all the colonies. And it really became almost the battle cry of a nation. It was the banner we were born under” …what the earliest settlers and founding fathers did for God and country should drive Americans to their knees. “When we see and understand the price that they paid and get that revelation of why they did it, and then we see now in today’s age what we’ve lost and what we’re about to lose if we don’t wake up.”
