    Joel 3:3 is clearly talking about little drag boys like Desmond is amazing and selling little girls that is the human sex trafficking going on at our ports and southern border here in america.

    The Righteous man walks in his integrity. His children are blessed after him. PROVERBS 20:7. One night a father overheard his son pray: Dear God, make me the kind of man my daddy is. Later that night, the father prayed-- Dear God, make me the kind of man my son wants me to be:AMEN
