But my lovely wife says she heard a grunting sound. As you heard that sound she woke up and she shook me a little bit with my eyes wide open. And no breath in my body. No breath in my body. Well too much detail. They call for the folks downstairs as my wife now report to me they run up as medical missionaries should and. Try to put a lid can peppery me. I have done it hundreds of times with people vassal dilated as hell. As wide open. No breath in my bi Cayenne head no effect. They call. The brain. Deprived of oxygen for the first thirty minutes.

As my wife replied she helped the. Individual get me out of the bed on the floor in a began to do their thing. Intervention me. To point life back. But as story goes. I was resting for seven days literally resting. For a seven day. They said well we'd better put him in a coma calls the brain on a swell but then I was down. Every day they came to my wife I'm sure you know so you know if he lived. He would never be able to walk or talk. That was a report for those times when my children flew over when my son flew over. Seven days. Nothing and on the Sabbath day my God. Yoga with my hands and my wife hand touching me. Walk me up. I did not wake up then in that short bed. They said You must a grown son Glastris every day. I woke up I did not wake up looking around and see what happened to me. The words that came out of my mouth was worse a prayer. For the people in the I.C.U. shipping people out in body bags. Enough three people in that country die. From this particular condition that they said. I had a soccer player cricket player. All in day's thirty's. One was thirty four years of age. He died. One day before his marriage and. This one I want to say to you. I've been in his work for forty years. When I sat down at a been a Christian because Adventism in Christianity are synonymous. Yet some of them say. So when I said been a Christian forty years. That's Adventism. I've been into four time ministry for forty years. Full time. Left my profession. How's us slept on concrete floors. God is give me the privilege to cover every continent in the world except for the South Pole in no. Every state in NY state. I have handled people with AIDS. I seen people with viral load down most down to teen I sing God raised him up. I seen cancer raise that I seen people die my hand. Forty years. No complaint. When God will be up. I shared that independents I'm sent is for a reason. Those three scriptures that I share really are repeated again. Proverbs Chapter four twenty to twenty three twenty three says keep the I Heart. With all diligence for out of it comes the. Issues of life. Keep that in mind favorite Tex. Jeremiah's seventy nine. This is something that can pass by as special as I classify those of us present true for reform. Yes. The heart is what desperately wicked who can know it desperately wicked you need a religious understandings. Ecclesia I'm sorry you're thirty six. Begin at verse twenty one on through twenty five to twenty six. God said man named member been profane among the heathens. I will sanctify my name for your sake and my say. I'm going to take that stony heart and give you our heart of flesh new spirit. Those are the three scriptures God gave me when he woke me up. And then he quali because you know the devil speaks to you. And so does God Now you know which is speaking God download his word to you. Then he quietly said to me as. Which took me back a little bit. How many years he said been in his working about remember how many years forty years forty years. He says son. I repeated seven times. I'm not going to read. I'm not going to repair your heart and I'm not going to fix your heart. So he said very clearly me so I'm going to you a new heart. One with the capacity to hold my spirit and then those words that are said many times in my testimony which resonated with me dead in that fully understanding to their point. He said surrender. To. But I just said how long I've been in his work. I've seen the hands of God working. I've seen sustain my family. I have lost property houses slept on concrete floors and except for but he already restores it. I thought I had surrendered. Anybody listen to me. I began to reflect. And as he just come to conclusions say many will come to me. As a lawyer. And when I cast out demons in your name. You know story. What did he say. And when you know I work as indicated. We confuse many times. The role that we play. I would not say someone else. The majority of us we carry out God's power of the work. I thought forty years the gifts the teaching the educating lifestyle work. Was my ticket into the kingdom of God. I'm a fixer. I like to help fix people lives. I'm a director. I like to direct people. I like to direct the ministry and by Remember Jarius his daughter was sick. Jarrod's remember a little a little later in Israel then you had disinterring in does a contra jurors told Jesus to come heal his daughter did you know that he's this custom of directing and managing people. So he wanted to keep going to man. Jesus is going to direct Jesus and Jesus responded favorably. But Jesus took his tack because it was somebody in the crowd. He had a slide close to and when he got there. Jerry's daughter was day. And you re disinterring was the same thing centered on that word that you come to my house we in self-supporting work in the regular work. We still have the mindset of directing. We take our plans to God and want him to bless our planet. I did it for forty years forty years. I will lay down a knife ruminating. How this is going to add the Plan ahead of my staff I gotta be sure that I am I'm in the front. So therefore when they look to me I have the right answer this. I lay down a night I go to bed and down to go up but I ruminating and night. Look at that were ruminate It's not planning or know when a body going from what a stupid what about step. You know just you know I meant better not a cloud but it's not reduce some ruminating the sleep is not sweet the work is a man and how I'm trying to figure is that I got us this step but I hear I am a person that likes control. This is not my testimony is yours to. God with me. Oh the down low and you anyone don't know me. If God had not woken me up and begin to download the Had me then next time I wouldn't waking up would have been a second resurrection. I watched a young man coming up. Powerful. Preaching good. But God is not inspecting the gifts. He says spanking from. A MESSAGE TO does not have the fruit is powerless. So I did not have a heart attack because case people didn't hear. I did not have a stroke. When I woke up there. All six physician in the surgeons around me. And I woke up one thing I'm in class Proverbs twenty six two I said doctors the curse calls the shinai calm. I thought I was talking to my students moves down does this the curse calls you not come. You see isn't dead name I'm mad because I know every effect there's a cause. So I said I quote myself said Doc. Why should diagnosis. They looked at me like you are going to me blank stare. As a die was gone. Oh well. Your heart is in good shape your arteries are as clean as a baby. Oh on your records you don't smoke. The only thing we can conclude is a rarity. Now. As I need to check it out. We found out it was not a reality as a doc then what's your prognosis. Well the electrical current in your heart went out. My God has endowed us with a certain amount of vital force that vital force is electrical energy. I use what I'm saying vital force. I don't have a heart attack. I don't have cancer and I have a stroke Fido force. What da pusher protocol now. Says you know not all those. Says you understand a little current with your program they get little or the stir and I had to reassure them that my question was not to challenge the professionality I said to them. I appreciate the intervention no emergency the care but does not the patient have the right to ask questions may my question what may be low too technical. As of now and what your priests tell whether one thing we can see will do so this won't happen again. We will run a wire to your body and get to the right chamber of your heart and kill that no in your heart. I did not enter into no discussion with the doctor and I'm glad I did not enter into no debate with the doctor. I did not introduce clarify that for me. I once again I reassured them. I appreciate your into video. I really do I want to assure them and I kindly said no it's OK. I said I will turn to United States. I have a close doctor friend of mine. Nimrod church is a cardiologist's but he does not specialize in electrical current but he state constable of my wife on the phone all my records. So I told him make this short because I'm not to cut the part that I will go home. They said would only two places close to you specialize in that that's Vanderbilt University which is in Nashville and universe Alabama so fine. So at that's been one month in the hospital couldn't walk and talk. Just Sharon my faith. Very So then God afforded me a place two hours outside of London England in the country wonderful family in the Bible said Cashel was bred on many waters it returning to you. In a foreign country no money etc etc My wife had to tell that story because when I was seven days. I'm not conscious of anything. The Lord had to deal with my lovely wife. But I spent the next month in the country outside of London England and I said to my wife in a Folks I said when I got here I need to go to church. My wife so you came walk out crawl to church is what I told her they found the church. Went there. It was having communion a day president and a communion. It was not spares fifteen flights. I can walk down steps like this when I got to hospital fifteen flights and my wife is a protector. I love her. The deaf as a women ah protection. She's an U.K. good those stairs and yes I can I go up those stairs. If I got to crawl you memoir clued you in Crawl. I want to those steps I took communion. I pay my vows my God is good to me. I went to church every Saturday I was there. Walking steady my wife what brought me a cane. I would say was proud pride. It was too short. Just way too short too short so as a come on me I put my hand. Yoshio down so that none. I had good care when a young lady's now was working with us. She from England my close friend. What he was there COULD food by the way in the hospital I can eat the food even though they put into their where I was throwing up everything. And my wife consulted with the people and said Well. They say you can't go into a kitchen but you can bring your own food. I'm out there in a country exercising every day. They gave me a lot of physical therapy on what kind of physical therapy I GET ME ABOUT hour so I knew I was coming around because I found myself walking to the bathroom with a little nurse on my right side. I walked into the bathroom. That's what I thought I was God I said Can we stop a moment. So should Mr Jackson. So why. So I can ensure question. Everybody short to me you know a second Asher question. She's sure she's very short short she will. Yeah I said Is there a male nurse on his floor. No mistakes there's no manners. Is there a male orderly on this floor. No no no no. Is there a male janitor on this floor. That's what I said she said why are you asking these questions. Well I'm look cognitive now. I'm Look if my wife cannot take me to the bathroom. I'm going to janitor a male to take me to the bathroom. So that really kind of going to mine. And so two months. Rehabilitative and several a bit. In England. Because it was fair that I can fly so I flew bad. So let's shrink this I will count me in every year we can be there in a video. Praise God. So I get back to the country year the ministries the same. The people are the same the challenges are the same I you listen to me and bring in a point. There's no change in the ministry no change in the people. No change in the disposition no change in the finances. No change in infrastructure. Everything is the same. So for me. So for me as very important. And as funny go to step away. As have staff meeting. Because when you and sees a different been a leader and a manager is very important. That's why we're now doing development and leadership training program is leaders different been a leader. And as situation occurs. They go look to the leader and you need to have an answer. Or you listen to me President or you listen to me says what in workers. You need and service. That's what I used to do and when God told me to surrender our way. Why play to him. That mean I gave up my right to direct my life to do re the ministry live. I gave up my room right to use my two years. And I committed myself to the hands of God And so when there was no response from me. Decision as they used to look I say we are still living in Bible days the same God of Adam Abraham Isaac Jacob The apostle is still alive today. And that God still answer prayers today. We're not going to look to Jackson no mo and we're not going to vote on what God has already or day. You don't vote on God's plan. When God gives a word I don't need a committee to agree with God's Word. And looked at me who has it now let's pray. It's FREE. God give us the answer. Didn't answer the day of pentacles. You gotta keep his mind least of these keep this in mind there's a God that way and supreme if you keep your heart to violently. I go to my cardiologist's when I walked in his room office.

So I'm sittin there on the examination table setting there. My wife in a corner. Dr long he walks into the room he opens the door. And he has a take he greets man why he looks over to me with us. Stare and never seen a doctor I haven't a face. Then he walks over to me just like this brother sitting here. He walks over to me grabs my hand. He bends down and says God is good you start administering not having a stout. Look at his eyes is as watery never met the man in my life. Fifteen percent of the people that survived this. He said they never wall. They never talk. It's God's good to you as a DA. He said I got to have this surgery did zap out my X. No he said let's look at so I stayed on his care for weeks. Went back the other week. But good. When do we go back there last month. Sometime. I said again. What about this operation. Is it. Jackson. There's no markers. If they did they can find anything. He said in. What would they don't do. That's what he tells me he said I see you next year. Now. I do think of a day but I do not hold on to that. He's a medical doctor the records show stuff.

Sickness of the mind prevails everywhere nine ten of the diseases which men suffer have a foundation here strokes later kooker in our diabetes cancer. Ellice for my algebra you name it. Ninety percent of physical disease find their origin in the my couple with not eating right no exist size and all of their nine ten very important understand that you care are the seed is but a says. Now listen. Perhaps some living home trouble. Some of us come up to homes that is dysfunctional that this is just toxic. Not that God fix taxes alone but is toxic. Parents children. It goes on eating to the very very soul. A week in the while that's vital force it goes on remotes for sand ruminated beating yourself for things you've done in the past when you give your sins the gun and confess he cast them into the sea and when those things come back to you. That's not God bringing him back. That's the devil bring in a bad kid then a man says it says here undermines the Constitution. On balance is the man. This is this there Eroni is doctrine is also now she goes on to talk about eternal burn in hell in this torment. But I know and young man commits suicide. Blew his brains out. He was holding on to a doctrine in admin fear and made it a test of fellowship. I tell you the doctrine. No Holy Spirit the Holy Spirit is not a third person a god no Holy Spirit and they made it to us in the second person left the faith. Because most we don't believe the turn of burn but we can hold onto Eroni of downturns and to the just be and we a make it a test and the devil has leverage it would travel you over the heel. You don't believe that don't play with the devil don't play with him. You go on to talk about here. By giving exaggerated distorted views of the carriage of God. God does not destroy. I come to all of this fine. Have produced the same results upon since the demise. Taken. Cause Minto. Illness. A great deal of the sickness which afflicts humanity has an origin in the mind. Where his origin. And then he goes on to say is and can only be cured by re storing the my to hell. There are many more than we imagine who are sick mentally heart sickness main many what the spec thinks that stomach problem could be Crohn's disease. Also US. Because there's connection between the brain nerves in the stomach. Our men too added to either suppressed immune system or cause it to function properly. You could be the best being in the good in town and were meant to depression that rats in your stomach know what I'm talking about. Far too little thought is given to the causes underline the mortality the disease in degeneracy that exists today in the most civilized favor lands the human race is increasing in invigorating no is to teary is to carry a day at least one out of eight men will suffer a major depression sometime in their lives. Men have a false conception of who they are. I guarantee you that because I know we have an image we must project we find one out of four women suffer major depression life. And find a ninety nine percent of the people day just seventy years of all will suffer situational depression. What does that mean I remember my mother we should begin to get sick. And even before I became administration as it. Now I'm going to say it is not a condemnation of those have to do this but that purpose of. That my mother was not going to die in a nursing home. She was on. I am mom. Now something my can one I can do that we have sisters and brothers say is too many of us to let our mother cast her off into a strange place situation of depression. She could lose a husband but the familiarity of Framley put in a strange place that this sin him down. That's why when you have a knockout blow she better have your room. Hello out there. He lies your room from Mama grand day. I'm serious. Situational depression. What is meant to illness. I'm a poor forms of secular do we move on because we'll pick this up to mob out God's grace mental illness is a new disease a condition that influences the way a person think feels behaves and all relates to other and two years of our surroundings. It's all right. Although the symptoms of mental illness can range from Mount to severe and not different to pin on the type of mental illness and it is a secular right in some of these this is true. A person with untreated mental illness. All of them is unable to cope with life daily routines and demands. All right let's move on small What causes. Gone from secularize although the exact cause of most materials is NOT know and I will. But cause great to spill that myth because there is a call so all new to illness and that will be revealed. If we don't do it at night will be real tomorrow and the solution. Therefore to go on the said It is becoming clear through research through research I do research find many of these the conditional calls by yes a combination of what genetic the top. About that biological satellite you go environmental factors. OK no problem with that not personal weakness. I have a question on that. OK Defense have a question on net and recover from it too is not simply a matter of will and said this when I got a question on that isn't a question about truth. OK And I will show that. At the time I have tomorrow and I'm going to read out of heredity. I put up or it is not destiny. Gossett I visit the nigger is the fall for the third and fourth generation we do not inherit a disease we inherited predisposition. Yes they want to me a predisposition that we might have the Tennessee and then everything put in place. Did we get the disease. Are you with me. OK I will stay then biological some mental illness has been linked to abnormal balance of brain chemicals which is true call neurotransmitter Newell's transmitters help nerds cells in a brain communicate with each other if these chemicals are out of balance or not working properly messages may not make it through the brain correctly leading to symptoms a minute illness. I can buy into that because I work with people neurotransmitters hormones are going to instead they can become imbalanced your lifestyle can produce that and you following. Let's look at psychological trauma. I can agree with this some mental illness may be true about what psychological trauma such as Chalo such as child abuse severe emotional physical sexual abuse is that true. Yes those are some of the factors contributed to that. Or loss of both parents etc environmental stress or such as death or divorce. Yes dysfunctional family changing jobs a school or substance abuse can trigger disorder. So I can do some of that. And we all experience that. This is just a picture of pairs shown how to begin to deal with all these different mental disposition I'm not going to spend time on that tranquil as an antidepressant drugs account for one full of all prescribed medication has a lot of medication which is a zero when this is done two thousand and four is increase over level may your children United States on antidepressants is more now. More now. More Prozac your prozac solve all of these drugs. Interesting. So I'm not going to spend time and move on. How many know this man. Those who go to segment schools take psychology must pass through the fog of psych Sigmund Freud. I mean for good. He says religion is an illusion. Every student will have taken psychology will study him or you listen to me. Anybody want to deny that you must bypass because he is the father of a psychoanalyst. He says religion is allusion from regards to monotheism God as an illusion based on him a tally motion need for powerful supernatural paths that means that we need a a pair in our life. So we invented this guy to come for us. That was his position I don't need to read all the rest that stuff that was the position. Why how do you know when I went to undergrad school I was that by him and took his stuff too. So I had to be detoxified I read his books I read his books. Broader religion this argument from develop in the future of illusion in which four argued that religious belief in CERN the. Function of psychological consolation. Fraud argues the belief of a supernatural protector serve as a buffer from a fear of nature just as the belief in an afterlife serve as a buffer of man's fear death do us them and Senate already sent up here that this man has no clue who God is and though he said his promise was based on his mindset and we sit under this in for the oh. And learn second and then a person come to you with such a larger problem then you going to suck on them. There probably no way Jose. Let's go back go back with me to Genesis Chapter three and we might have rather. Let's go back to the beginning. And you with me and that skip all the rest of the jargon back to Genesis Chapter three. Let's see where mental illness began and for tomorrow. We have find a solution. Meant to in this. Genesis chapter three verse seven. Notice what the Word of God says. Follow the Word of God Father be with us as we come to these points here. Give us understanding clarity in Jesus name we pray a man. We probably won't begin any further than in this we pick up tomorrow. Let's have a genius. Chapter three you there with me I'll pick up a verse seven. Now everybody know the whole picture of anime Vadra want to give you a whole bible study on that God put man in the God and man was perfect. Would you say so. Even though some might debate about the fact that Adam was only reflecting the thought of God So Adam not. And God's mind were in harmony and when Adam spoke in his sin the state. He was all souls. He was speaking after the thoughts of God. Adam mine was in harmony with God keep that in mind I read the secure we read this thing here and vent seven the Bible says. In the end the eyes of them both were open. Now remember I'm in Genesis three seven. You're a member of the tempter you go up and read the devil said had not got said you can eat of these trees in a BEGIN to respond to or put here but even added to God's word. You know that God said Don't be she said God said don't need or touch when you add to God's Word or take away your ad to your name to The Book of plank. That's what happened to us we are always going to err. We're going to get it. God's word. We're going to revise God's word. You could do that so down in verse seven follow me now. It says here and and and the eyes of them both were open and they knew that they were what naked and they's so feet leaves together and made themselves apron. Follow me and they what. Heard the voice of the Lord God walk in the garden in the cool of day and Adam in this wind did word from the president of the Lord God amongst the trees of the God verse nine and the Lord God called him to Adam said unto him as he woke up I eat of their eyes are not God knew when they were Didn't are his omniscient. Bursting and he said I heard the voice in the garden and I was well and I was a naked and I will. Then you go on down he said would to use negative first Wilson and the man said though given a man. Let me put this on the screen as read this up here on this part this what happens when Adam and Eve sinned are themselves from their relationship with God. This what took place. Shane and salacious fear guilt denial blame self preservation. Where you think about that are you with me. And not do an injustice to the Scriptures. Those of by product. Of a mind a separate from God of depression. Shame they hear themselves. He would be. Isolation. Fear free kill. Combination denial. Plain and self-preservation. These are product by product a mental illness and mental in the study in the Garden of Eden then start with seing the fraud because he need help. This close here. And when you give their mind we come back tomorrow by God's grace. Here is those turns and if I'm in a grief emotional suffering caused by disaster an unfortunate outcome sorrow. Anxiety apprehensive and eases the mind worrying discontent a sense of grievance dissatisfaction. Re Morse distress arising from a sense of guilt self-reproach distrust having no confidence and suspicion. These are the areas what we are confronted with. Tomorrow by God's grace. We will deal with those. I want to lead read his last statement here. If God spares tomorrow. Up here you see very important. It says here. The physician. He is more than human wisdom and power that he may know how to minister to the many perplexing cases of disease of the mind and heart with which he is called to deal. If he is ignorant of the power of divine grace. He cannot help the afflicted one but will do what aggravate the difficult but if he has a firm old upon God He will be able to help the disease. What distracted by he will be able to pull on his patient to price and teach him to carry all the cares of perplexity to the Great Physician. Doctors in dealing with disease must realize they are not dealing with some organic physiological then dealing with of power beyond their understanding Christ's method of yearly you pick this up in Matthew Chapter nine verse one three the first thing son be of good cheer mental that sins be forgiven the spirit you and pig that bed and wall when cries deals with sickness here address the whole person very important understand that. What we did to those who might be interested as we continue tomorrow. We have put in this program. One of our D.V.D.'s call mind cured is a three part we don't have two parts. This is also available mind cured. Did help give more of a nation. Also there's another D.V.D. which you might already have information is the healing power of forgiveness does another thing that we need and has a say. What has really revolutionized my life is John fifteen by in crisis. If God's will. We will pick this up tomorrow we go deeper and let's find God solution to the problem if I don't see you tomorrow. Again I want to leave you were I said less than the three P's. In about remember the three P.S.. Somebody remember the plan the power and the person. Remember these three P.'s God has the plan with some history. He has the power that's God's exclusive ROW. The only thing he is looking for is the person. The person who is willing to submit and commit to his place and to receive his power to execute his will. I was say I'm on issue as I've learned in this year in light of forty years. What it means to give up to God I'm serious. You have an aisle one essential task. Do you know what essential task is. And I love. No other pretty bring up. Even our salvation. The only thing that we should be concerned with is bringing honor to God. But the greatest challenge you and I have to help someone else is surrendering. We don't know what that means. I pray tonight you go to bed before you go to bed to get up and do conversions the day by day experience but not until we experience. On condition surrendering then me. I've given up my rights. To control my life. You know Jesus may know plans oneself that doesn't mean God don't give you a foul for thought. But to try to control direct your life that is something that you are going to end up in the DID church. I did it for forty years we could have been head of the ballgame. We are past the fourth generation of Adventism our God is not going to feel those who visit peer into the can trust us with His Spirit. Tonight. For you lay down said lord. If I don't know how to surrender. I give you permission to take this heart. Keep it to let me mode. Now when now here's my last question for you prayed. When you look at John fifteen. And just one question you reversed one verse down a verse three when Christ said I am the true value my father is the husband. Every branch in me. That does not bear fruit. I take it away every branch in me that bear fruit. I Persian. I said this before. Repetition deepens the impression he purges for what reason. For what reason commom and let you go. We're going to bring forth more fruit. Now my question I asked as before. What does he use to purge you and I to make us fruitful as well that's what I thought you say pick up your Bible look at verse three as we close up. God does not use trials to perfect our characters. Do you know what I just said Look at verse. Three. Don't take the says Jackson word where the first three said he said you are clean through my word trouser reveals what's in our trial reveals our great need. You might be going to a trial and praying to God lawyer him Ministry out the Word of God are all for the solution to the trial. If this brother now good friends have a broken relationship calls in a heart pain depression. I become very bitter and angry. It's brother because he done me wrong irreparable damage and I say every time I hear his brother name. Cheers run through my body. Now I'm dues as a demonstration I've been through that experience. And we sin. Now and I'm going to a trial trying to perfect my character. Reveal you were saying you are doing God thing his word for the solution. Forgive him in love you. Do you want to say that with the words and forgive him and love him. That's what the word said the word is one. Produce in United Fruit Hebrews four to a zero sum of fifty one. John seventeen seven God used the word to prune us. Mental illness only can be resolved by the mind being restored. I work with people. And into depression bipolar. I work with paranoid schizophrenia. I have seen the devil speak through people voices said in their ren in front of a person. And as I have talked to her all a certain a man was a very. A squeaky scary voice comes out and it's warm and I face tells things we not talk about exercise and demons are in the U.K. play with the devil. There's power in the Word of God May God help us may God give us a love for his word. May God make us when men and women who our prayer life is like breathing may a light shine. That is prayed together. If you knew you would be a ballet his loving father our Creator. Our sovereign God is in the name of the sun and our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. There's no other name. In heaven or of a bad man when he can be saved. We call upon Him Father for cause he's faithful. Calvary thought is a revelation to our door sensors What seen. Does to the heart of God we thank you for Jesus. Who are traded in a wine press law who have gone through this in LET US example he didn't leave us example what a god can do but what a man can do by God abiding in Him Father let us let us have that experience through Jesus Christ in law there's stains that our challenge in our lives. It could be marriage of trouble. It could be financial burdens. It could be institutional problems. It could be church problems. But father all those things are not to be our focus our focus is one thing is that we must learn how to ultimately unconditionally surrender our lives into your hand. Is that we my glory file you that the fruits of your character will be reproducing us and thus others might partake of those same froze in your life reproduce in their lives all these factors that cause us to not get sleep.
