My #1 Need ...
Updated equipment ...
My current equipment
A 2010 Macmini ... While, in its day, this was a terrific little machine that allowed me to do most of what I needed to do. Unfortunately, time and technology has progressed beyond what this little guy can handle. Current age 8 years.
2009 Macbook Pro ... This was a very good machine for a lot of years. Never had a moments trouble from it. Quite frankly, I hate that I am unable to use it any longer. The way the machine was built it only allows for a maximum of 8Gb of ram and in today's world you need to have a minimum of 16Gb of ram and 32 is preferred for any sort of video editing.
Total Raised So Far ... $1,125
This is what I NEED ...
This is a 2018 Mac Mini with the following specs:
- 3.2GHz 6‑core 8th‑generation Intel Core i7 (Turbo Boost up to 4.6GHz)
- 32GB 2666MHz DDR4 (ram)
- 512GB SSD storage (hard drive)
- PRICE - $2,099
My desire is to be able to purchase two of these machines and "daisy chain" them together so that they can offload and share processing power. HOWEVER, even just one of these machines would be a tremendous improvement over my current setup and would last me for another 8 years (or 2 years into General Flynn's first term ;-) )

#2 - Patience/Ability/Focus To Complete A Special Project...
A Complete Recording of Me Reading The Bible
I have undertaken a very special project where I am making a recording of me reading the entire Bible and will make it available in MP3 format for download. This is something I have wanted to do for more than 20 years but have never really given myself to it. I now feel as if the Lord is compelling me to do it.
Please pray that I will be able to keep my focus and that my voice will remain strong.
#3 - Faster Internet Access ...
Thank you to a very special patriot who sent me a cell phone signal booster that actually triples my average internet connection speeds. While there are still some limitations with mobile hotspot connections, overall I see 100% improvement. Thank you Father!
#4 - Studio Microphone Isolation Shield ...
A great B-I-G THANK YOU goes out to a patriot listener who contacted me about helping me with this item. I am so humbled when I consider the willingness of patriots to do what they can to help push this movement forward.
#5 - USB Audio Interface ...
Lets you record and monitor with software effects in real time
This particular piece of equipment will allow me to add a second and third microphone as additional inputs for things like multiple vocals.
#6 - 800# For Call-In Show ...
With a toll-free 800 number we can allow listeners to call in and participate in the broadcast WITHOUT having to use Discord.
After weeks or searching doing research on several companies and ways to approach this, I have found the company called Freedom Voice that offers a toll-free "virtual" number with unlimited minutes and all the features we would need for only $30 a month.
This is something that I really would love to see happen so please help me pray that this desire will become a reality.
