Obeying God’s call to run for Congress has been one amazing journey. We have to make calls, answer calls, raise money, create mailers, film videos, talk to the media, write press releases, plan events, make flyers, walk neighborhoods, coordinate volunteers, to get the masses to vote on July 12th. The Lord is sending us amazing people and is clearly leading this enormous effort. He has put us in a position of dependence on Him, which you and I know is the best place to be. We have been asking Him to be glorified since day one and this victory will do just that. This victory will be a testimony to Him for us here in the South Bay and throughout the country.
The South Bay is waking up! We have an explosion of volunteers coming in to help all through the day and yard signs are flying out of headquarters. We also have more and more people praying for this election, and we now believe our prayer updates are being forwarded to thousands of believers throughout the nation!
Please continue to pour our your hearts to the Lord for this election, but more importantly for God’s people to engage the South Bay like never before. We are praying for more than a victory on July 12th, but an awakening in God’s people that will move like a rising tide through our South Bay that spreads out to all of America.
Team Huey thanks you from the bottom of our hearts.

PRECIOUS AND PROPPED UP
Craig and I visited a friend on Sunday. He and his wife have been married longer than I have been alive. What a commitment. What an honor to be in their presence.
This phase of their journey together has been a rough road.
She has Alzheimer’s.
When I saw her Sunday she was carefully propped up in an armchair. Her head was arched back, and she was sleeping. As our friend lovingly held his wife’s hand, he updated us on her condition.
He told us that she could no longer hear well. She does not speak. She is physically unable to walk on her own and has a difficult time eating or drinking anything. He mentioned that at this stage, she is “much more easier to deal with”. Prior to this, he had to deadbolt the doors because she would walk outside on her own. Now, she doesn’t even try to “get out of the house”.
Then he told us something I will never forget.
He said that EVERY morning when she wakes up, he sees the SPARKLE in her eyes, and for that brief moment he knows her spirit is still ALIVE.
It was agonizing to look upon this precious woman. As I took in the facts, I felt conflicted. I wanted to run away in anger. I wanted to scream out in pain. I wanted to reach out and just hold that frail, trapped soul.
Then I recognized why I was there. I was given the privilege of watching UNCONDITIONAL LOVE. Our friend demonstrated that. His watchful care. His tender touch. His loyalty. His understanding. His mercy. His grace. His Passion for His one and only love. No matter her physical condition.
The church here in District 36 has Alzheimer’s. We suffer from the same symptoms. Not only do we sleep a lot…we don’t really hear Gods word. We really don’t speak about what He has done for us. We can’t really walk on our own. Our diet consists of things that are easy to digest, stuff that is watered down, so it can be easily swallowed.
And you know what’s worse? Our cities see us as something that is “easier to deal with”. Why? Because we NEVER try to “get out of the house”.
But Our One and Only has not given up on Us.
Jesus still sees the SPARKLE in our eyes, even if it’s a brief moment. And HE wants to pour out his tender touch on us.
We have forgotten that HE is the ONE who PROPS us up. He willingly takes our burdens.
We need Him to UNLOCK the deadbolts of our memory loss.
We need Him to UNPLUG our ears.
To open our mouths and SPEAK.
To Breathe life into our paralyzed bodies.
To help us walk. And eventually RUN.
To help us eat bites of real food, and eventually DEVOUR a full course meal.
To help us “Get out of the house” and demonstrate UNCONDITIONAL LOVE to our cities.
HELP us Lord Jesus to REMEMBER, what YOU have done for us.
PRAY: For revival: among Gods people, here in District 36, the state of California, and the nation. Pray specifically for pastors and leaders to rise up and support this campaign in every way possible. Pray for congregations to wake up and get out the vote for Craig.
PRAY: For protection: as the opposition is already sending out negative attack ads attempting to destroy Craig. Pray for these attempts to backfire and for Craig to have continued favor.
PRAY: For resources: We are desperate for finances to fund this campaign. We need people of all ages to walk neighborhoods, make phone calls and tell friends to vote.
Church, it’s starting to happen here. We are slowly rising out of our slumber. We are waking up. We are seeing this happen now. The Holy Spirit is moving. We want you to be a part of it. It is a rising tide of revival. We want you to come ride it with us.
RESPONSE: I need your feedback. How has God spoken to YOU through this campaign? If I can share your response, let me know. Email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
ACTION: Every Monday @ 7am we are having PRAYER @ the Campaign
Headquarters. Join us and come expecting God to move your heart.
YOU: Are Precious. And Propped Up.
