The CEO of J.P. Morgan, Jamie Dimon comments on how great America is doing, even saying that this is the greatest time in the history of America! Jamie is asked about America’s economy and what he sees right now. “America has the best hand ever dealt of any country on this planet today. Americans don’t fully appreciate what I am about to say. We have peaceful, wonderful neighbors in Canada and Mexico. We have got the biggest military barriers ever built called the Atlantic and the Pacific. We have all the food, water, and energy we will ever need. We have the best military on the planet, and we will for as long as we have the best economy, and if you are a liberal, listen closely to me on that one. The Chinese would love to have our economy. We have the best universities on the planet…we have a rule of law…we have a magnificent work ethic. We have innovation from the core of our bones…It’s extraordinary, it’s extraordinary!” He continues to compare America to other countries and how we have it so much better. “…We have it all, and we have been shooting ourselves in the foot.”
It is great to hear truth and honesty coming from a leader in America’s Business Mountain. Yes, our country does have problems but compared to other countries our problems are small. We are looking at the lowest unemployment for minorities and a 60 year low for women. This is a time to celebrate what God has done in only 24 months! Only God can do what has happened in America. You can use your platform for God no matter what mountain God has you in. God has good plans in store for America, and it is time for everyone to get on the right side with God and the U.S. Constitution.
Jamie shares more exciting truth about the importance of being loyal to our country. “The interest of the country should be put before the interest of your industry or company. So, businesses are constantly coming down and asking for that one little thing that helps them…just do what’s right for the country; your business is going to be fine. Your business will be better off if the country is stronger…” This is important, and he is just honest which is what we need! What he is saying is that people are showing up and making decisions based on a self-serving attitude without even thinking about their country and how their decisions affect others. In America, we need to unify now because unfortunately as we have seen time, time and again something tragic happens for us to unify. But we can unify before something terrible happens and see our nation transformed.
When we look at unity as a believer, we need to remember the importance of being connected to the body of Christ. It is important as a believer to get connected to a body of believers and to be under a spiritual leader and to bring your family under that covering so that you can truly be the Church. This is what the body of Christ needs to bring unity back. It is all about family, and that is what we are at VFN Dream Center. We are a family of believers who are all over the world, and we invite you to be a part of our family, our tribe, as we call it. You are welcome to join us if you are in the Pensacola, Florida, area or you can join online from anywhere in the world. Check out more here and be a part! We want to hear from you!

Missionary to Iraq: What it’s like to Present Jesus and Minister in Refugee Camps
It is beautiful to see people go to those in need of love and the Gospel! We hear from a missionary to Iraq and how he visits the refugee camps to share who Jesus is with the lost. He shares what it is like to present Jesus to those that live in this Islamic nation where many follow the Koran that denies who Jesus is. It is amazing that this man is stepping out in boldness and sharing the truth in love.
David Popovici, founder of Kingdom Gospel Mission, shares about his experience in Iraq as a missionary. “The Lord is demonstrating Himself in power, or you have nothing. Especially in parts of the world where you have traditions and belief systems for over a thousand years that are very aggressive and hostile against the Gospel…In the Muslim world for sure, without power, signs, and wonders accompanying the Gospel we are left with very very little.”
Next, David shares his method of sharing the Gospel to the refugees. “Many of the camps are starting to close and shut down, and people are starting to repopulate the cities that were once completely ruled by ISIS. We are grateful for that. For years we were going to the camps and visiting the camps and because the Middle Eastern culture… is a very hospitable culture it is very easy to start a conversation with somebody. Especially when they are in need.” He shares how he believes that preaching the Gospel to the poor is this “because when people recognize their need, they are open to the Gospel.”
“The Spirit of the Lord is on me because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free…” Luke 4:18
“We will introduce ourselves as believers and that we are here to pray for your sick…they are very open and many many times the Lord heals and touches them. They will invite us into their tent…drink tea and talk about Jesus. Then after that, we often ask them if they have ever had a dream with the Lord, if they have seen the man in white, and many times sometimes years prior they had encounters of dreams with the Lord and had nobody explain to them what it meant.”
When the father or patriarch of the tent is the one to come to Jesus first, then that usually opens the whole family to come to the Lord. But when it is the mother or someone else, they must be secretive about their new salvation. They work to connect with them and connect them to believers that are in the area. They help them to grow in the love of God so that they can resist the fear that is a huge part of the Middle East.
It is encouraging to hear from David, and we must pray for those that God has called to be missionaries to the world. We want to hear from you and what you think about this. Write to us at [email protected]. Greg and John shared in this segment.
