Minneapolis: Hundreds of lives changed through the Gospel.

Team members from the ministry Circuit Riders (a ministry of Y-WAM or ‘Youth With a Mission’) traveled to Minneapolis to hold outdoor revival services.

The world has witnessed violent protests and peaceful demonstrations for nearly two weeks following the death of George Floyd.

Now the streets of Minneapolis have become the site of an outpouring of God’s love and salvation, as hundreds of people have gathered to glorify God through worship, evangelism, and baptism.   Team members on the ground in Minneapolis saying that “There are too many testimonies to recount!! Thousands are hearing the Word with hundreds “responding to the Gospel of Jesus!!”  There are reports of, “Dozens and dozens of people healed, filled with hope, changed, and born again by the power of Jesus last weekend in Minneapolis!”

Even though hearts are still reeling from the injustice done to George Floyd, the Gospel of Jesus Christ is advancing as many are finding solace and salvation in a Heavenly Father who brings hope and healing.      https://crmovement.com/about/

The First Amendment protects your right to assemble and express your views through protest. However, police and other government officials are allowed to place certain narrow restrictions on the exercise of speech rights.

You don’t need a permit to march in the streets or on sidewalks, as long as marchers don’t obstruct car or pedestrian traffic. If you don’t have a permit, police officers can ask you to move to the side of a street or sidewalk to let others pass or for safety reasons.

Ask SAM: Are Census Bureau calls – a scam? Maybe…

Answer: “Census workers will occasionally follow up with households over the phone to ask questions about their responses to the 2020 Census or other household surveys,” according to the Census Bureau.  By law, all responses to the 2020 Census are kept confidential, and the caller will only review responses you had previously provided.

Legit callers will not ask about financial information or ask for your Social Security number; if that happens, don’t provide any such information.

To report suspected fraud — or, if you think you received a call from the Census Bureau but want to confirm the legitimacy of it — call 844-809-7717 (English) or 844-809-7718 (Spanish) to speak with a local Census Bureau representative.
