The price of lumber has increased 250 percent since April 2020. There are now more real estate agents in the U.S. than houses to sell according to the Nat’l Assn. of Realtors.
People are pouring into our country on our southern border from unstable countries having corrupt governments often financed by drug cartels spawning criminal gangs. These abused migrants are mostly unskilled and uneducated, and they seek asylum status. If granted, they will join the rest needing a home which none of us can afford.

In Mathew 28:19-20 Jesus commands us to go into all of the nations and make people disciples of Jesus.

We experienced deep inflation near the end of the 1970’s which our government brought down through raising interest rates from 5.5 percent to 19.5 percent deflating prices but causing 2 recessions. We will need to increase our 0 percent interest rates today.
