Interview with Anna Khait

Bio: 

Anna was a professional poker player and a contestant on the CBS Show Survivor in 2016.  She was one of the only outspoken Trump supporting, conservatives from the entertainment world during the 2015 campaign.

Anna is a reborn Christian who currently hosts a conservative talk show. Her show The Anna Khait Show on Youtube is a well respected platform for patriots. The show is her way of giving back to the country that has given her so much.  Originally born in Saint Petersburg, Russia, Anna moved to America when she was 4 years old.  Her family came to America for better opportunity, freedom of religion, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.  She is grateful for what America has provided for her and her family.  As a child, she grew up hearing about the atrocities that her relatives faced during the Soviet’s socialism and communism.  She was red-pilled in 2015 when she realized that the same tactics used during communist Russia were being implemented in America today. The attack on Americanism, the constitution, and freedom has sparked a flame in her heart. Anna is a fighter intended on making this country free again.

In this special episode, we pay tribute to our beloved mentor, Pastor JR Camfield. He recently passed away, leaving behind him a legacy of ministry and hope. We miss him terribly. There has never been such a selfless servant, who sought God with his whole heart.  I’m sure he heard “Well done good and faithful servant.”  and is hanging out with Jesus riding on his Harley on streets of gold

We did an interview with about 11 years ago about how to hear God’s voice.  We urge you to take the time to listen to it. It will change your life.

Farewell Pastor, or should i say until we meet again.
