Word For The Week
Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.

IN THE LAND OF THE BLACKFEET, CHANGE COMES FOR THOUSANDS OF YOUTH
In downtown Browning, Montana, a new life is brought to an old donated casino. For the first time ever, thousands of youth from all over the Blackfeet Reservation will be able to enjoy a Recreation Center In-door Skate Park, where they will be able to play table games, sports, meet with each other, form community service teams and help their world around them. Also included in the itinerary are traditional cooking classes, tutoring, music classes, heritage learning, GED testing, mentoring, job searching, and movie nights. Government offices and organizations have been in support of the new project and have donated much of the center's table games, furniture and sports paraphernalia. Much is still required for an full adaquate facility. The Recreation Department hopes for fundraising activities to come this summer. We ask all of our supporters, friends and family to keep the youth of the Blackfeet tribe in your prayers.
Thank you all for your support. God bless,

My name is Samuel Orozco.. I am contacting you because I am going to be opening up a store in San Diego... It is going to be a really unique Shop / Lounge.. It will have Clothing, Music, Art, Spraycans, Books, Magazines and more. I am planning to launch this April 5th I am new at this... but not knew to the scene... I have toured for many years and have performed across the US... and have established many venues with numerous artists reaching into all genres... This place that we will be opening.. We have high expectations and will have high standards.. we are not just going to be selling anything that looks cool.... but the stuff that we will be selling will also be reflecting who we are... our integrity... And we are hoping that this is something that you would like to be apart of...
The whole purpose of this store is not to compete with other big crushing stores.. but instead to offer something that isn't so mass produced, stuff that is hard to find, custom and has value.. We want to stand behind all of the product that we have... we are trying to reach souls through different art forms... and putting merch in their hands that will have an effect on their lives.
ADAM BACA FROM THE NAVAJO TRIBE
Adam Baca, born and raised in Socorro, New Mexico. I'm Native American of The NAVAJO TRIBE. I've been around the sinners block more than once and never once I gained anything, but lost alot and all it brought me was strife. I gave my life to JESUS July 28, 2007 one week after I was released from New Mexico State Prison. In Carson New Mexico under "POWER OF PRAYER CHURCH" is where i was reborn as a Christian. I was sent to prison 2005, 2006 and was released july 17, 2007. Behind all the concrete walls I stayed STRONG nad KEPT MY FAITH. I started a SPIRITUAL relationship with GOD while encarcerated. My released date was Sept. 15, 2010, but I was released early with the help of GOD. I believe for a good reason I was released early, To join GOD'S army to help push them enemy gates back and help tear down satans kingdom. Save souls by pointing people towards our LORD JESUS CHRIST which is the only way. Now I'm doing the work that was given to me from above with PRIDE and absolutely NO SHAME with the support of my pastor Annie Rincon from "Socorro Revival Center", Socorro, New Mexico. GOD IS GOOD, GOD IS LOVE. GOD IS THE ONLY WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE....
S.O.G. CREW AND EMI MUSIC WORKING TOGETHER AGAINST VIOLENCE ON THE STREETS
We want to thank all our family and friends who have been praying for us and believing for change in our communities with us. And I want to share with you all about the door that has been opened to us. We have been asked to produce a soundtrack that record label EMI has agreed to fully distribute by November 2008. It's the hip hop version of a sequel film named D.O.P.E. (www.dopethemovie.org). The project will be a tool of encouragement for all the youth that are suffering from the current violence in their communities and high schools revolving around gangs, drugs, and crime. Rap and Hip Hop artists, such as Glasses Malone, Mellow Man Ace, Gospel Ganstas, Sheeck from Above The Law and part-owner of Fresh Coast Magazine, Leonti and others, have agreed to assist in the project to encourage the youth and encourage peace on the streets. The project will also provide a platform for artists to encourage the youth in high schools and at events. We will keep everyone updated as soon as things begin to roll. Please pray for everyone and their families who are involved in the project. Thank you to all.
Much love and blessings,
