Our Service Provider (networx) sold/merged with
a larger company (iiNet) recently without notifying

We had applied for a Domain Name in order to
avoid this in the future. Unfortunately we will not
be able to use the "fmi.org.au" which we
wanted. It has taken over four weeks to find out
that our application has been denied. This was
apparently due to insufficient information supplied
to the Australian <au> registry. If we
continue to apply for this address, it could take
another six weeks and we won't know if it's

To avoid possible denial and delays we have

Imperial Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan
(KKK) speaks at Flame Meeting in
Johnny Lee Clary stunned a congregation of
60 to 70 Catholics with a personal
testimony that made you sit up and take
as Australia has had its share of prejudice, it has
never been exposed to such a personification of
organised race hatred as that of the Ku Klux Klan
in the USA.
Rev. Johnny Lee Clary today: A new man holding a
Bible and a microphone with a mission of love and
Lee Clary addresses a capacity crowd at the
FMI Praise Meeting in Perth, Western
Johnny Lee's testimony, one was struck by the love
that God has for even the most undeserving of
people. It also gave witness to how much power
there is in Christian love to change the direction
of the most ardent of bigots and racists.
Such was the case of black Pastor, Rev. Wade
Watts who was persecuted terribly by Johnny and the
Klan after a live debate on a local radio station.
After that broadcast, Johnny told the Klan that
this man had made their leader look foolish and
asked what they were going to do about it. "Leave
it to us." they said. Shortly afterwards they
proceeded to burn crosses and throw dead animals on
Rev. Wade's lawn. In addition they burned his
church to the ground. In the meantime Johnny would
disguise his voice and make threatening phone calls
to his home, persecuting his family.
A short time after the broadcast, Johnny Lee
and a gang of KKK members approached Ps. Wade in a
local restaurant. They challenged his right to be
there. In the confrontation, Johnny told Ps. Wade,
that whatever he did to the chicken he would do to
him. "He looked at us, then at the chicken. He then
picked up the chicken and kissed it." Johnny said.
"That was the first time I'd not kept a promise".
Johnny said speaking over the laughter in the
Rev. Clary shared how his life of hatred
began as a very young child through the influence
of his father from whom he first heard the word
'nigger'. He also told the listeners how he saw his
father commit suicide using a revolver to his head.
This had a profound impact on this young boy who
became a rebel at school and who was detained,
expelled and rejected by teachers and peers, all
compounding his catechism of hate.
Seeing Klan leader, David Duke on
television, Johnny contacted the KKK for
information. Later a man came to see him and asked
many question soliciting his opinion on many
matters about racism.
asked my opinion before". Johnny said. "And now,
here was this very important adult asking my
opinion on what I thought about important issues."
This had a profound effect on young Johnny and as a
result he joined the KKK and rose to prominence in
a very short time, eventually becoming the Imperial
Apparently, there are very few KKK members
in Australia. "As small as they are, don't
underestimate them". Johnny said. "Adolph Hitler
began with only fourteen members. And, because
people ignored such a small group it grew to become
the most evil organisation the world has ever
known, one that began the second world war".
Johnny's career of hatred took him to public
prominence. He appeared on talk shows such as
Donahue, Oprah Winfrey, Jerry Springer and many
Leaving the KKK behind at one stage, he
became involved in Professional Wrestling. "My
career was really taking off. I was working with
the likes of Cindy Lauper and was about to sign a
contract for the WWF when the KKK saw me on TV",
Johnny said. Shortly afterwards they came to see
him about using his newfound fame and influence to
advance the cause of the Klan. As a result he
appeared on an international TV Talk Show and
revealed his involvement and position in the KKK.
As a result, the wrestling contract was canceled
and Johnny was rejected by the wrestling community
as well as others. "My career was ruined", Johnny
said. "You can never escape the Klan".
Throughout all those years Johnny kept up his
persecution of Ps. Wade who, for his part, kept up
his love for Johnny. Eventually, Ps. Wade's love
for his enemy won Johnny's heart to Christ. "Ps.
Wade finally died". Johnny said. "While he was on
his death bed, I went to visit him. He was very
sick and had lost a leg". Johnny and Ps. Wade had
become best friends. "I have invested a lot in
you". Ps. Wade told Johnny just before he died.
At the funeral Johnny Lee fulfilled a
promise. "I went to his coffin, bent down and
kissed him". Johnny said with tears filling his
eyes. "I finally kept my promise to him about the
chicken". Johnny Lee shared so much that it is not
possible to tell all here. What I would say to sum
up this amazing testimony is this: Be sure to teach
your children true doctrine.
All true doctrine lines up with the Gospel.
Armed with the truth, our children will know the
difference between false preachers, false prophets
and false messengers. They will then be able to
make an informed and proper choice and avoid the
evil doctrines of the KKK and those of the Marilyn
Manson's of this world; another problem that
strikes deep at Johnny Lee's concerns for
What struck me most was Rev. Wade Watts who
literally demonstrated in his life the teaching of
Jesus to love your enemies. It was this love that
disarmed a young man full of hatred and won his
life to Jesus Christ. Would that we all learn this
manner of love.
Rev. Johnny Lee Clary is devoted to reaching
young people that they are conformed to love their
neighbor and to love their Lord and Savior, Jesus
Christ. His heart clearly burns with a passion to
eradicate all forms of racism, sectarianism,
violence and prejudice.

testimony. If you would like a

one to you for only $12 AUD which

People in distant rural areas rarely have
the opportunity for the kind of ministry that
people of the cities do. Many of these communities
are isolated and small which makes an outreach like
this very expensive and time consuming. This is
especially so where there are no air services
available and traveling by road can be very
exhausting as well as expensive. For FMI, this has
been a consideration. So it was a moment of joy for
us when our members volunteered at their own
expense to go on these missions.
This generosity has proven to be a source of
great blessing. People who would otherwise have
little or nothing to stimulate their faith and
Christian fellowship in such a way gained a great
deal from what a mission like this was able to do.
It was certainly a way of sharing our faith
together without doctrinal boundaries. This is
possible without compromising our own beliefs
because it is focussed on Christ and His Gospel
message rather than theologies etc.

there for around half an hour. "I was fully awake,

"It was as though I was paralyzed by the Holy
Spirit, but I felt good and free". Dusty also

Since then Dusty has been able to get down
to Perth on one occasion and attend our Youth
Meeting. He told Flame Youth leader, Frank Tassone
that until the Renewal Day he was thinking of
leaving Australia and returning to the USA. He has
now decided to stay in Australia because of what he
experienced at Flame One and the new friends he has
found in the Flame youth.
The best way to sum up what this Mission Day
meant to the residents of Perenjori is expressed in
this letter from the Shire President, Mr. Brian

for your contribution to the well being of

He told the teachers that the Jubilee Year
(Levitical) was established by God because the
people kept breaking their covenant. It was God's
way of protecting the covenant in the same way that
he established the Levitical Priesthood after the
rebellion on Mount Sinai. In this way God could
cancel their sin and bless his people through the
Year of Jubilee: The Year of God's Favor.
This Jubilee Year was not in permanent force
until Jesus declared it fulfilled in Luke 4: 18-21.
He later died on Calvary paying the full price of
the debt, canceling sin against God. "This was the
New and Everlasting Covenant which we celebrate at
every Mass." Eddie said.

acceptable to the Lord" is still
sign that the Jubilee Year is in force, is that the
Church was established and remains today. The sign
that the Jubilee Year is over, is when Jesus
returns in Glory and the Church is taken up from
the earth." Eddie told them. "Until that time,
everyone has Divine Grace available to save them
from sin and its consequences in destruction and
eternal damnation". (John
Explaining what constitutes a covenant in
legal and cultural terms, Eddie then demonstrated
to the teachers the nine steps of a Hebrew Covenant
Ritual. He showed how God had taken these same
steps from Adam (Covenant
with a man),
with a family),
with a tribe)
and Moses (Covenant
with a nation).
He then explained how Jesus went through the
same nine steps to establish the New and
everlasting Covenant. One with better promises
which is a Covenant with all peoples of the world.
Eddie shared a word of prophecy which said,

scraps that fall from the table. I have prepared a
banquet for them before their enemies, and yet they
live in poverty. I say to you, No more scraps for
a story about a young man in the 1800's who
immigrated to the USA, Eddie illustrated the
He was a poor man who worked hard for many
years to save enough money for the ticket. Finally
he bought the ticket, packed his sack with enough
bread and cheese to last the long journey.
Each day at meal times, the young man would
look longingly at the other passengers eating fine
food food in the ship's diner. He would then go
alone to his cabin and eat his meager bread and
cheese. After several months the ship docked in New
York. The steward stood at the head of the
gangplank bidding the passengers farewell. As the
young man approached, the steward bade him farewell
and good luck in his new life.
As the young man began to descend the
gangplank the steward asked, "Excuse me sir. May I
ask a question of you?" The young man agreed.
"Sir," the steward continued, "I noticed that
during the trip you did not eat with us and the
other passengers. Have we offended you?" Looking
surprised at the question, the young man said, "No.
No-one offended me. I only had enough money for the
ticket". At this, the steward's jaw dropped in
shock. "But sir," the steward said, "The meals were
included in the price of the ticket."
As the teachers listened, they began to see
and understand the meaning and purpose of Blood
Covenants without which there is no forgiveness of
sin or abounding Grace. They began to see how God's
people live in poverty and loss regarding the
grace, blessings and provisions God makes available
to them each day, simply because they are ignorant
of them: They live in lack because they too, do not
realise that these are all included in the price of
the ticket paid by Jesus on Calvary.
Understanding and abiding by, our Covenant
in the Blood of Christ, we begin to inherit the
Kingdom and the thousands of promises of God in
Holy Scripture. We are therefore seated with him in
heavenly places, not groveling on the floor picking
up the scraps that fall to the ground from the
master's table: We are not dogs and poor
beggars, but sons of the Most High and joint heirs
with Jesus Christ!
Eddie and Linda,
Thank you so much for enriching our
understanding of the covenant
relationship. It would be great if we
could all stop eating bread and cheese and
partake in the full meal.

will all work towards this. I know the

to leave a legacy.
Perhaps the highlight was the idea that the
students could develop something that would become
a legacy for the school and for other Year 7's to
follow into the future. Asked to break into small
groups, the students began to share how they could
do this. Some suggested a Time-Capsule made by them
to be given to the Year 1's to open when they got
to Year 7.
Other ideas were for a Tennis Competition
financed by donations from which they would
purchase a Trophy. All the money raised from the
events in the future would be donated to a cause
that the students of subsequent years would choose.
There were many very good and creative ideas such
as, making a Confirmation Banner, visiting the
elderly in their free time, a dance and drama and
several other ideas.
