A vote of 133 to 65 is a tremendous victory! We give our Lord Jesus Christ the glory, first and foremost! Rep. Gillen has expressed the same spirit.

You will not believe the number of times we were told, "I never thought the bill will get this far" -- so this is definitely a God-thing, especially when we consider the sources of opposition we faced.

We want to tell you all that we dearly appreciate your determination in following the progress and keeping up with the action steps. It can and has been both confusing and frustrating at times, but you stayed with us. 

Samuel Adams' words: "It does not take a majority to prevail... but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men". I think we proved that true, and we're not done yet.

With the amendment added which recognizes diploma granting organizations, we can now more truly say that everybody wins in this bill -- somewhat like the shedding of grace Christ offers to all of us. 

Continue to pray as we approach the next phase of making HB1013 a statute, passing it through the Senate and finally taking it to the Governor for signature. We just don't know what God has in mind. His ways and his timing are always perfect.   

Rep. Gillen gives his regards to all of us whom he calls friends.
