Life…what is life? Life is but a vapor. This verse came to mind today as I found out what the name of the Valencia County Deputy Sheriff that passed away was – Officer Ryan Thomas – while he was responding to a burglary call.

Officer Ryan Thomas, the young man (age 30) that lost his life on duty in Valencia County on December 6, 2016, was a respected member of the community. Ryan served in the United States Navy and was a member of the 150th Security Forces Squadron in the New Mexico Air National Guard.

His father passed away recently – unexpectedly. Ryan’s family is close knit family that we knew personally through our home schooling history.

Please keep this precious family in your prayers. You can go to the Go Fund Me account to help his young family in this time of sorrow and need.

Thank you for your story. You can read it at their webpage.

Rest in Peace Officer Thomas.

Pastor Dewey Note: We love our state! Prayer changes everything! Jesus is the answer! Amen! We need to face these problems from a Biblical viewpoint to change this ugly stuff. We need to look at them as Jesus does. Politics in New Mexico just buries the state, neither party can get it right! We should no longer hide from these issues. I have been here since 1995 and this is just more of the same, but nothing is done to change the course of this state. We are to leave this world a better place than we found it. God will not bless this state unless it ends the murder of HIS babies through abortion.

New Mexico is at the bottom of another list.    New Mexico ranks as the worst run state by 24/7 Wall St. for the second consecutive year. Following a large. . . shortfall in the state’s   2016 and 2017 budgets, Moody’s downgraded the state’s credit rating and outlook. . The likelihood of living in poverty is very high for individuals without a high school diploma. In New Mexico, fewer than 85% of adults have a high school diploma.   New Mexico’s labor market is struggling. The state’s labor force declined over the last five years, and 6.5% of workers were unemployed in October, the highest October jobless rate of in the nation.

Pastor Dewey Post from this week:

Sadly, it is hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel financially for New Mexico. The Albuquerque Journal is reporting that New Mexico is running out of money, or when you really look at, the state already has. According to the Journal report the state is on track to have a deficit of about $69 million, despite a special session and budget cuts. It’s really going to take a good “gut check” to get the state in the black. The state has many challenges, who will have the boldness to make the necessary cuts?    ABQ Journal Report

Pray for New Mexico…….We are in constant prayer for Godly wisdom for our leaders.

God is to be our financial planner!

What is going to happen to our children? Our grandchildren?……the future generations of New Mexico?

My Daddy always taught me to leave the world a better place than I found it!

Look at this budget surplus in Minnesota!
