Should I quit this job or take that job? Should I enroll at the school or withdraw from this class?

“God, not my will, but Your will be done.”

I’ve learned that when my prayers are going unanswered, or when things are happening slower than I would like them to happen, that either means that God is protecting me from danger up ahead, its time is yet to come, or God has something better in store (or that other person is caught up in the gooey glory of his own ego, EGO - egging God out) or even a coaxed ego from another. My enemies (those who oppose the YH Fire truths) may be powerful, but our God is all-powerful. Suddenly, God can turn any situation around. Suddenly, God can cause a door to open. All it takes is one touch of God’s favor.

"With God, all things are possible." ~ Matthew 19:26

Jack Norwood Young (a Hotshot in his own right - in his own time- as a Navy Frog Man) was one of my top supporters and he always encouraged me to tell my eyewitness account and thereafter what has happened since that fateful weekend of the June 30, 2013, Yarnell Hill Fire (YH Fire) and this Summer 2018 when I began to do that on this blog. I am a novice to the wildland fire industry and yet many Wildland Firefighters have stated my knowledge of the industry impresses them. And there has been some who even said my wildfire knowledge "intimidates" them (i.e. investigators on the YH Fire and another was a USFS Hotshot Superintendent). I am in this for the long haul, so stand by, and watch what God reveals through our website.

I am in this until the end, however the dice may fall and the right folks (those that have direct YH Fire knowledge) start talking. TRUTH MATTERS! You will soon see that I am working to bring the YH Fire's contracted Yavapai County bulldozer operator, Paul Morin, to the forefront and on the video below is one photo that was taken of the Yavapai County dozer in the Shrine to Sesame area on June 30, 2013 afternoon. Pause the video below (Figure 1.) and read the last photo on the video, which is also the designated tribute movie thumbnail. This man, Paul Morin, was never interviewed by anyone nor in any (un)official reports. His story matters and you will see that as I began to show documented public records in future posts.

Last Fall 2017 when I was walking the Weaver Mountains, I would be praying...Me: God, you there? What do you think I should do about the Yarnell Hill Fire? God: (silence) Me: God, I really want to do Your Will. Can you tell me what that is? God: (the sound of crickets) and then January 2018 arrived and it has been going solid everyday since then. Even when I went home I still worked on it. My family and friends have been so understanding, albeit sometimes I have not been understanding of it and wanted to give up, yet God is leading this, not me. I can state this "obedience" is one area I know I have heard from Him. Something I truly have heard Him say to me..."I’ve given you a lot to do. I want you to have my attitude and mindset. I want your life to look like mine." Then I am blown away thinking "yep, He is right. I fail Philippians 2:14 as I grumble and argue and get steamy eyed when I learn something new or I have been stumped to know how to put stuff out that I know about the YH Fire."

The naysayers are right there ensuring best they can to make sure I do not speak on the matter. All the time I prayed on the Weaver Mountains and I thought I heard crickets and silence, it was then I realized I was so busy praying and not realizing His Word and relying on that and being obedient is all I need to do and He has the rest. I was relying at the typical joyful moments...waiting for that next bill to pay in the mail...I know I was not thanking God for all circumstances at times...I mean I have been thankful - don't get me wrong but when something negative happens like a naysayer telling several Foresters and Fire Wardens conference officials unkind/untrue stuff about me - then I was like - Am I suppose to be thankful in that too??? For their intentional deceit and their harm?

It is in the Bible (1 Thessalonians 5:18 ) ( "In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you." ) ... but that is hard for me. How about you? When I react the way I think God wants me to do in a situation like that I am shaking my upper body - wondering - do wings peak out on my back after doing that kind deed in a negative situation? It is my restlessness I know; I need to let go and let God.

On the next post, the whirlwind of thoughts bouncing around in my mind - who should I bring to the forefront first?

Air Support Modules (e.g. Air Attack, Air Service Module, Lead Plane, Air Tankers, Rotary Air Craft/Helicopters)? Or how about Operational Personnel - Todd? Cougan? Rance? Musser? GMHS? Blue Ridge? and all the other WFs that was present in that crucial areas? or Command and General Staff - Shumate? Hall? I want to do things in a "dump" style and allow you all to figure the mess out yourself but it was God who led me and stated "Paul Morin." So, I sent him an email Fri, Sep 21, 12:04 PM Subject: Fact Check Notification to PAUL G MORIN and yet he has never replied. I will be posting that email soon on a future post. I am doing the best I can to get the facts out to the world and to avoid "throwing anyone under the bus" in the process.

My disgust with the aftermath of the YH Fire wasn't something outwardly manifested, but there was a kind of inward grinding. I was ticked off with people, with things, with issues that tied into this fire and even other wildfires because I knew stuff and other wildland firefighters, even some from the Prescott area telling me solid stuff regarding the YH Fire. And they also revealed to me about the recent CA fires and how many folks tell me the Powers-To-Be and their awful sick twisted manipulation processes, like they did to me the eyewitness and others. They tell YOU what you saw or heard. For example, we (Tex Gilligan and myself ) had our moment with the yellow and white helicopter and the 'Mystery Man' speaking with GMHS Superintendent Eric Marsh on the late morning of June 30, 2013. How did that conversation that day influence Division Alpha Marsh's decisions that day. Nate Peck (Moki Helitack) mentioned this 'Mystery Man' in his interview, yet nothing more came of it; and I was completely brushed off by the YH Fire Investigators.

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Ephesians 6:12 King James Version (KJV)

KGUN 9 Youtube video is the first I learned my friend passed on. I emailed him and it was unusual to not get a reply asap so I googled "Jack N Young died" and there it was this video breaking the news but days later his son reached me and gave me the full details as well as the lovely Glenda and we went right down to Tucson to be with them. We are sorry for your loss Cody and Glenda and family and friends. I miss him.

The following images are just inserts of GTS (Google That Shit) after I learned he died and I came back from Tucson I wanted to see one final spot my online search collaborations of my friend Jack N Young currently known online in 1 spot for me to view:
