Signs and Such

Friday, April 10, 2009 / Posted by Aaron /

Today the harvest missions team and myself put up a 16 foot cross near the side of the 15 freeway in Yermo on the way to Vegas. Larry (the missions leader), owns a bit of land there and had set up 10 signs displaying the ten commandments alongside the road a few years ago. Larry decided to set up the cross due to the ACLU's actions to remove an 8 foot cross in Mojave.

While we were building the signs, a few people honked their horns in approval of our work. One person however called us a bunch of pagans, which I am still trying to figure out since, according to Mr. Webster means one who is not a Christian.

Along with the occasional honks, we received a siren from a CHP helicopter, which proceeded to land a few feet from where we were working. It turns out the two officers read about what we were doing in an article in the local paper (which was on the front page) and decided to come out and support us.
After we put up the signs, we had a time worship and Larry gave a short devotional message.
All I can say is that it was a pretty blessed Good Friday.
