2 The Condition of America! Under Judgment – its our sins! Deeply Divided – no courage! In the midst of Global Economic Change Sense of Community evaporating –2 generations established in the doctrine of self Local Economies declining –especially in south (manufacturing sector) Family Unit all but dissolved Church Divided and Sick Youth starved and desperate for Truth –Let your actions speak! Mt 24:12 And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. All rights reserved – LLI Fellowship

3 How much longer before….? All rights reserved – LLI Fellowship Cross bearing leaders needed to bring change! Change without revolution? What are our idols? How much time before all our freedoms are lost? Dan 3:17 If that [is] [the case], our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and He will deliver [us] from your hand, O king Eph 6:10 Stand strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.

4 The Cure Repent of our transgressions Publicly Bring our communities back to God –One at a time! (not a grandiose political campaign) Unify the Body of Christ Take back Satans strongholds –Poverty stricken areas –Satans high places Rebuild the Family unit – Gods way Train tomorrows leaders Is 1:16-18 Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil; Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow. Come now, let us reason together, says the Lord Your God All rights reserved – LLI Fellowship

5 Lets Build an Ark! Noah was appreciated until the floods came! City of Refuge for times of trouble! Believe that there is a great coming together before His Return! And God said to Noah, "The end of all flesh has come before Me, for the earth is filled with violence through them; and behold, I will destroy them with the earth. Lk 17:16 And as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man All rights reserved – LLI Fellowship

Doctrines flipped upside down in last 6 years. –Work of Holy Spirit, End Times, Ecclesiastical Ops, Spiritual Warfare 9-11, promised God I would do anything to help America. 2002 Mom died, God will not leave you or forsake you? Prophetic Word in 2004 – reach unreachable people! Experienced a deep sense of call in Nov. 2005 Started Livin Lattes in May 2006 Left profitable business in May 2007 to establish Livin Lattes. Closed Livin Lattes on Oct 20 th 2008 in Pilot Mtn. (ran out of money) Greatly impacted by Jn 17:24 as command to join Gods people.

11 Livin Lattes History May 2005 family moved to Pilot Mtn (21 acres of land) from NJ. Knew nothing about the café business prior to LL. Received training from Mobys coffee (1 st franchise attempt). 200K investment over our 2.5 year existence on Main Street and Lola Lane. Entire family involved – necessary in coming days! Moved from coffee shop to café style in May 2007 (food). Developed a reputation for good food and coffee drinks. Added larger music venue in July 2007 – metal & hardcore. Evicted from downtown location May 2008 (too much music). We believe many youth came to know Christ – music side Older folks received touches from Christ thru one on one ministry. Instructed musicians to preach during their shows (new leadership arises). LL believes a great revival (restoration) is coming to area. Rom 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. All rights reserved – LLI Fellowship

12 Results of Ministry in Pilot Mtn influence –Many young men encouraged to take their music and ministry to another level. –Inspired churches and individual in other areas to reach unreachable youth. –hope in the hearts of rising generation. –Launched TBTS – national gathering model for underground music industry and future method to gather tomorrows church I Cor 3:6 I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the increase. All rights reserved – LLI Fellowship

13 Results – cont The real effects –People got saved –People inspired to go deeper in Christ (Lordship) –families reconnected –churches brought together –inspired bands and leaders with their music –Youth brought into relationship with Christ (read comments on website) –Breakdown the status quo local 1 st Baptist church built 1+ million dollar addition to reach youth) –food & drink, music, atmosphere missed in culture Your gift will make room for you!

14 Shannon's blog - goodbye doesnt mean forever. Oct 21 10 th grade last night would be one of the nights that i will probably remember for a long time. it was the last show for livin lattes cafe as you may already know. livin lattes changed me for the good. it opened me up to God and for the first time in a long time i actually felt Him with me when i was there. people are all the time hatin on LL and i dont see how they could do that because its just a christian place and were not hurting anybody. LL opened me up to a whole new way to praise God. Their whole concept isnt about the money, or the coffee, or the bands. its all about the relationship you have with the Lord and the respect and love that you show to Him. Pilot mountain needs a place like this because of just everything else going on around us can just pull us away from the relationship and the love that we show to Him. Jonathan, you are truly my hero. i dont know how you kept it going for so long with everything else happening in your busy life. you have a very big family to support and i just believe that whatever you decide to do, God will help you through anything and everything. Pilot mountain will never be the same. All rights reserved – LLI Fellowship

15 Kelsays blog Nov 18 th (senior) ok so I REALLY miss LivinLattes. If it JUST opened right now, I would get in my car and Go.
