-- good morning she missed calls.
They want to -- to go that we would it.
I know victim if you could go back in time you would have done things a little bit differently but that was the -- that was before you had found christianity is that -- totally changed your life.
You know Jesus Christ changed my life and -- in the same sense.
And I've been working in the presence with 35 years and what I've seen Gretchen is the complete moral breakdown.
Crime has caused not -- and -- -- -- poverty is everybody in the twentieth century thought it's caused by people making -- moral choices.
So I have a passion now for this doing the right thing.
