Doug Phillips said, “Here to present the Audience Choice Award is Ted Pettinger of Samaritan Ministries. They are on the front line of battle. You will be coming in droves to their medical sharing ministry.”
Ted Pettinger said, “Samaritan Ministries has been standing with Doug all eight years; every year it feels a little bit like a family reunion. Some of you have said, ‘We’ve been members for five years, three years or four months. We are coming into ObamaCare and the three healthcare-sharing ministries have an exemption written into the law.
“We may be the only choice for Christians to have a pro-life option that doesn’t pay for abortion and doesn’t pay for abortifacient pills.
“We are going to be working with Colin Gunn to help him produce the documentary ‘Wait ‘Til it’s Free!’ That phrase comes from the expression, ‘If you think health care is expensive now, wait ‘til it’s free!’
Watch the ‘Wait ‘Til it’s Free!’ trailer.
Peter Spencer said, “Oh goodness! You have made it a blessed moment. I dedicate this award to the 175,000 of our precious brothers and sisters who will give their lives for Christ. We want to do this in remembrance of the martyrs of the faith. There is nothing like the perseverance of the saints. Thank you for your support. It’s inspiring. We might just make another movie!”
