Patriot Express Newsletter Edition #137
Greetings and welcome to the Patriot Express Newsletter Edition #137. Thank you for stopping by to spend some time checking out the PENL. It has been a busy week here at the HFS HQ (home) where Ms. Lucy has been working her behind off preparing our home for family arriving midweek for the holiday. It is not often we get to have both kids, husbands, and all five grandchildren together at our home. I can't keep Ms. Lucy's feet on the ground. We are thankful and blessed for this opportunity.
I tried to keep this version of the PENL shorter and a bit light on topic. You will find a few video type podcast with some fun information and light hearted music to enjoy over some apple cider if you desire. Sometimes we have to kick back and enjoy life and let the world stay outside the door. Know what I mean? I released the PENL early on Friday because we will be away all day and evening doing family things with our kids and grandkids.
On the HFS front it is always great when I get to talk to HFS Patriots in some form or fashion. I was happy to talk with team leaders from two of regions on future planning going forward. I also got to email with a few other HFS Patriots on different preparedness topics to include an upcoming project HFS has been working on all year. It is almost in the test phase and hopefully we can soon deploy it all of you. It will help you greatly in your food calculations. I'm so appreciative to our Patriot sister who has been bringing this tool to completion.
On a sad note, one of our loyal Patriot sisters passed away this week and is now with her heavenly father. She will be greatly missed but she is in a better place now. A woman of few words but a smile that was contagious for those around her. She was a woman of impeccable faith and if you ever asked her anything about the Bible you better have time on your hands to listen. We will miss you dear sister.
If you are the praying type, please make sure to read our prayer needs at the end of the PENL. We have lots of Patriots and family members needing our prayers at this time.
Let us move along...

Hope for Survival books: The holidays are approaching quickly and now is a great time to order and receive copies of my two preparedness books. In the past HFS members purchase books for family members who may be in their early stages of preparedness. It is also a good time to purchase books because all proceeds off the books goes to a local charity to fund food for those in need. The number in need today is high and they will go higher going in to winter as many work seasonal jobs or others who are losing jobs because of no vaccination. HFS donates the largest amount to this cause during the holiday period to help ensure all families will have a good meal over Thanksgiving and/or Christmas. HFS is very appreciative to past purchases of my books to help support this growing need.
You can obtain information on the two HFS books at this link: Survival, Preparedness, Disaster Management for individuals or family (hopeforsurvival.com)
Hope for Survival - How Food, Water, Shelter, and Security Could Save Your Life (Book 1)
Hope for Survival - The Mindset (Book 2)
We must make this brief public announcement to protect the innocent.
Ding, Ding, Ding....Attention HFS readers..... Opinions shared in this newsletter are just that, opinions, and nothing more. Read at your own risk. The owner and author of this site is not responsible for hurt feelings or thin-skinned readers. I do my best to show restraint and respect to the best extent possible. I take as many precautions as possible and try to remain as nonpolitical as possible, however, there are times when I just can't help but point certain things out. Occasionally I use words only Patriots recognize and understand. It's not personal against any non-Patriot. It's just the truth. Sometimes we must pull up our spenders and suck it up. Just saying. Stay the course, read what you want, and avoid the rest. Avoid fear porn as much as possible and the day will be okay. When all else fails… Keep the faith and always have Hope.
Let’s move along and get to some thoughts...
Thoughts for the week –
It has been a long year to this point and very stressful for many. Many could not spend Thanksgiving together last year so hopefully you can this year. I wanted to give some light thoughts for this week's PENL.
Ms. Lucy and I wish you a happy and blessed Thanksgiving holiday. We hope you got to spend time together with family and friends to celebrate with a great meal, family bonding, friendship, and lots of smiles and laughs. We are blessed people and must remember all the things we have to be thankful for. We are so blessed to be a part of Hope for Survival with each of you. I like to call you our extended family. Thank you.
