Loving Our Enemies

When I look at my companions’ and fellow co-workers I don’t just see familiar faces, but the faces of patriots like those of old outnumbered and worn, fighting a uphill battle in the face of staunch opposition. Standing for the unborn is serious job that requires those that believe in life to put in long hours. It taxes upon a person’s strength because evil does not sleep. I have had minimal sleep, and have not ceased to work an almost 24/7 schedule to defend life.


Sometimes I do look at my co-workers and wonder why am I killing myself over this? Why am I fighting so hard against a foe so big and abusive like Planned Parenthood? Why do I take endless photographs and walk among angry protesters and listen to people calling me a sexist bastard and illogical fool? Why do take the insults and threats that are sent in hateful passion by pro-choicers? I’ll tell you why. Because I serve a God greater than Planned Parenthood and a God so big that He can’t stoop to their level. I stand for those who can’t speak because it is right. I stand for those who can’t speak because if not me who will stop murder?


Today in front of the Texas House doors after House Bill 2 passed to the Senate, I saw a father and a son and the father told his young boy to tell the screaming and chanting pro-choice protestors to say “I love you”. That little boy shouted and his voice rang clear among the shouting. He was heard, and was ignored because truth is meaningless to those that want convenience over it. That young boy voiced a message that while we hate abortion and the effects that it has on our society. We do not hate the people supporting it. Our passion is life and to protect all human life.


My challenge to you is to tell a pro-choicer wherever you are and regardless of who they are. Tell them that you love them. Love is the only thing that is more powerful then hate. We need to overcome hate with love. I can guarantee you that even though the people yelling at the Reps walking out of the house heard that little boy and will be responsible for the hate that they inflict on others knowing the attitude of those that stand for life.


So go and overcome darkness with light, hate with love, and Satan with Jesus. We need patriots and Christians alike to fight the good fight and stand for life in the Texas Senate and Senate Bill 1. I challenge you to show love whether it be correctional, disciplinary, and parental love to show that love to those that want to murder their children. The world needs answers and we have them. Go let that answer be heard.


Update on the Fight for Life in Austin

The past few days have proven to be the most exhausting and challenging days of my life. The late nights and intense work environment begin to take its toll upon those championing for life. But we are still for that very reason alone, life. If were not for these modern day patriots no one would stand for life and the status quo would reign supreme. That has not happen though, because right now men of valor and principle are voting and standing for the unborn in the Texas legislature.

Thomas Umstattd Jr. has been valiant in his live-stream broadcast at lettexasspeak.com over the past few days and having powerful Texas voices speak for those who can’t speak for themselves. This effort though has not gone unnoticed by the media or those that call us their enemy. But what I want to point out about our opposition is that while the environment  has been intense it has not been by the advances of pro-lifers. I witnessed with my own eyes pro-lifers embracing a more outspoken women to hold and and sing with them. It may not be easy, but we strive love the women that our out here in opposition to house bill 2.

We are here because we stand for life. We love children and we want the government to protect their rights. We openly embrace those that are on the other side. We believe in life and in defending it at all cost. This is who we represent and the reason we do what we are doing.




Stand For Life!

The past few days have been the beginning of a fight in the Texas legislature of unborn children’s right to see the light of day. It has awakened me to the harsh reality of people promoting the murder of innocent children. The things that I have seen in the past few days are so horrific that I would never want to speak of them because of their sick nature. Yet I know that I must so that people know what evil is and will realize that we must rise up opposing it.

I have seen a 70 year old woman shaking before a mob of angry primarily white protesters booing and threatening her. I have seen women with fake blood streaming down the inside of their thighs bragging they just had their own abortion. I have seen people with aprons drenched in fake blood offering cheap late term abortions. I have seen people singing and chanting “hail satan” inside the Texas capitol. I have seen children being pushed and shoved by adults because they stand for life. I have seen good and evil at war these past few days. It says in

Ephesians 6:12

“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.”

We are not only fighting a legal battle at the Texas capitol right now but a great spiritual battle is raging before us and we need to have troops on all fronts. We need prayer warriors, protesters, legislators, and children to do their part wherever they are. You can do your part and no job is unimportant or too small.

We desperately need people to rise up. It is time for your voice to be heard. I’m sure you have a voice in some way; it’s time for you to use it in defense of those who can’t speak for themselves. When we disregard life we lose the meaning to live. There could not be a more important time to speak because millions have been murdered on our watch and it is our duty to speak. Please consider coming and standing and attending the upcoming rallies this week.

Yesterday was the celebration of our nation’s birthday. Our founding fathers were the first patriots and those who rise to stand for life will be the patriots of today. It is important to remember that about third of Americans were for independence about a third sat the war out and a third were for staying with England. So from our nation’s founding we were not all on the same page that is why we have a constitutional republic not a democracy. Those who stand with us will be in my book the John Hancock’s, the Benjamin Franklin’s, the George Washington’s, and John Adam’s of our day. They will be the men and women that stood in the gap and defended what was right and were willing to suffer the consequences. I salute you those who are standing and those will stand this upcoming week as patriots and freedom fighters of the Republic of Texas, The United States of America, and of Jesus Christ our Lord the sole author of our salvation. Stand for Life!

Partial Success!

Please realize the the courts forbid my parents to reveal details of this case. I do know this, the final orders now allow the possibility of homeschooling. Thank you so much for your prayers. I believe the efforts of the people here is what changed the judge’s final order. However, the judge is still requiring us to move to Houston. Please still pray for that issue which was not been resolved.

All I can say is that by the Grace of God and you, the people, kept a total violation of authority from happening. I know that results are not 100 percent amazing, but you spoke out and the judge heard and began to fear. These are the moments we need to have more often in our form of government. The people need speak up for what is right. We the people are the only force that ultimately keeps the government in check. Benjamin Franklin when asked by a American what form of government they gave the people, he responded. “A republic, if you can keep it.”

I am so grateful for each and everyone of you who wrote and called in. Without your efforts we could have been another victim that slipped through cracks. It only takes one unjust judgement for a system to be corrupt. Please continue to pray for the forced move. I wish I could reveal more information about why I believe it is wrong, but the family code forbids it in Texas. Please know that the battle is still not over, but the tides have turned. I know it may sound cliche, but thank you so much. You are the reason that this judge thought twice about her actions.

Thank you so much

In Christ Alone,


My Life Purpose Statement

As time progresses I seek to find what is my purpose on this planet. As I study the scriptures and allow myself to be discipled by Christ, I learn more and more about my life purpose. My life purpose is to do the things I cannot not do. That means I am purposing to go about the things God made me to do so well that I cannot resist to do them. That includes serving and loving all those that I come in contact with all the days of my life.

It is my duty to hold nothing back in my service to my wife, friends, and even strangers. My talents are those of a leader. I will purpose to seek God to create in me a clean heart and help to lead others to Christ. The theme of my life I believe is to seek justice, love mercy, and to walk humbly with my God.  These are the things that will help to obtain balance in the Lord.

When it is all said and done I want to look back on the days of my life whether it be tomorrow or 60 years from now and say I did what was right in the eyes of the Lord no matter what the consequences were or the price. To endure is to overcome and to overcome in Christ is to win something I could never have had otherwise. I have endured and am enduring many trials right now and anticipate a life full of them, but I will not be moved to deny the faith. I will choose to cling onto Christ just like Job of the Bible.

As most young men I feel the need and desire for a wife. God has taught me so much in the area of marriage. All I can say is that with Christ in me, He has given me the ability to love my future wife like Him. I know I am not perfect, but I can say that whoever God intends her to be I am willing to give all of me. I will love, protect, serve, and lay down my life for her, to breathe life into her so that she is lifted up and not me.

The probably most foundational point of my life purpose is the daily reminder I need is to realize life is not about me but about me showing the love of Christ to others. These are the things that my heart believes or I will lead my heart to embrace with the Grace of God.

Good Men Are Doing Nothing – Homeschooling Threatened in Texas – Urgent Action Required


My name is Andrew Koch and I am 17 years old. I have been homeschooled all my life.  I have lived in five states and have traveled the country. I love life and I love the gifts God has given me. Homeschooling is probably one of the greatest gifts in my life. It enabled me to go and learn various skills at a young age and test my abilities. I came from a somewhat Christian environment.  In 2011, my father filed for divorce.
Please sign this petition as well as write the judge. https://www.change.org/petitions/judge-sheri-y-dean-of-the-309th-district-family-court-harris-county-to-allow-maurya-koch-to-live-in-san-antonio-texas-and-homeschool

My world was crushed. I could not imagine life without a dad. It didn’t matter what I thought because it didn’t change reality. God had a bigger plan. The Hon. Sheri Y. Dean allowed us to move in temporary orders to the San Antonio, Texas area. We have been living here for two years and have found support with incredible friends and a loving church  that have sustained us during this time. My family will unanimously tell you that San Antonio is our new home and we would never want to leave.

This past week about a month after the final hearing, Judge Dean made her decision. She has decided regardless of what the children and my mother think that my siblings should be placed into public school and and be forced to move back to Houston. She has taken away our constitutional rights by making a decision in this way. My three younger siblings Nathaniel, Benjamin, and Christiana are crushed by this judge’s choices for them. I am right now fighting her decision in whatever way God leads me.

I am pleading with any of you reading that you will consider writing this judge and telling her that she has dealt treacherously with my mom who never did anything to deserve this treatment. She never petitioned for a divorce it was all forced upon her. You can reach Judge Sheri Y. Dean at this email address sheri_dean@justex.net . Please address this issue as the the divorce case between David and Maurya Koch. You need to write before June 12, 2013 before the judge’s decision is signed.

Please write her and respectfully tell her that this is a free country and in this country we still believe in a person’s right to the pursuit of happiness. Again the this is Judge Sheri Y. Dean from Harris County District Court. If you are from Harris County please add that in your letter.  Please stand up for homeschooling rights and personal liberty in Texas.

God has a plan still and it is our job to find it out. God can use these letters to change the heart of the judge or simply warn her of the spiritual and political ramifications of her judgement.

Again here is the email


You can use this template.

It has come to my attention that in the Divorce case between David and Maurya Koch you have denied Maurya Koch’s constitutional right to homeschool and you have told the family they must move back to Houston. Maurya Koch has committed no crime and yet is being treated as if she has. It will be harmful and unfair to the children to uproot them and force them to go to a school system they have never been in or want to be in. It has already crushed the children and Maurya Koch. Please change your decision for the sake of the children.

if you live in Harris County  tell her that you will not vote for her re-election and will encourage others to do the same, if she chooses not to change her decision

All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing. ~Edmond Burke

Please pray for my father and his eternal state and pray for my mother that she will have the strength to endure this time.

Please rise up!
