Mark, Kyle, Cary, Chuck, and How it is done

On July 6, 2023 I drove from my home north of Austin, Texas to Dallas. In 2017 my actress friend, and Christian sister I love, Gigi Erneta, called me.


Gigi: "I wasn't thinking about you at all, I was just exercising, and the Holy Spirit said, "Take Angel with you tonight. Do you want to go to a dinner with me?"


Angel: "Yes." This was Gigi. If the Holy Spirit had told her to take me anywhere I was there. Immediately. No questions required.


Gigi: "It is a secret dinner, you can only go if you are a member. You're allowed to take a plus one. If you do you are then in the group. It's a bunch of Christians changing Hollywood for God. We're going to take it over. There's a secret password but if you get there before I do just say you are with me and they will take you to our private dining room. Oh, and I think there are going to be some Hollywood stunt guys there. I know about it because of Brenda Golden. I'd really love to know Brenda better (Brenda Golden is the former wife of "The Oak Ridge Boys" singer William Lee Golden. They have a son together, Solomon. Brenda is a powerhouse in media and for God.) HERE


So, based on just that much information, and I may even have some of it wrong, but that's what I remember, that it felt SO secret, like that, I got ready that night and drove to the Austin restaurant. I walked in. I was almost the first person there, Gigi wasn't there yet. Only 2 guys stood alone in the room chatting. One was a stunt man in Forest Gump. The other one had the biggest, kindest smile, a black suit coat on, and a grey t-shirt that said, "I love Jesus" on it in white and red letters. "These must be some of the stunt men Gigi mentioned," I thought.


Angel: "Hi, I'm Angel Isaacs, I'm with Gigi Erneta as her plus one, she'll be here in a minute. And then, because the guy with the kind smile was just listening and waiting, I nervously searched for common ground and added, "We know Sammy." Here's a short-story about that HERE.




That was in 2017. Now it was July 6, 2023. I was driving from my home near Austin, Texas to Dallas. The guy with the Jesus t-shirt was going to be at another secret dinner. I was in the group because Gigi had taken me as her plus one that night. That guy had changed my life. His name was/is Mark DeAlessandro. He was Sylvester Stallone's body double/stunt double for 21 years, in 30 of Stallone's films. That was just the tip of the iceberg. He had been in 170 or more feature films from Titanic, to Spider-Man, Star Trek, Rocky, Rambo, Pirates of the Caribbean, National Treasure, Mission Impossible, you name it. He was a Hollywood Hall of Fame status actor/stuntman. Here's one of his stunt reels:

Here's a picture from that first 2017 "Dinner with Dreamers" hosted by Kyle Saylors of Saylor Brother's Entertainment and Brenda Golden. Notice Mark DeAlessandro in his "I love Jesus" t-shirt, Gigi Erneta is peeking in from the back, I'm the blonde between Kyle Saylors and Brenda Golden:

On July 6, 2023 I drove from my home north of Austin, Texas to Dallas. I went to my 2nd "Dinner with Dreamer's" private dinner. God works in mysterious ways. Kyle's vision was for creative visionaries to meet each other and become friends. His vision had worked.


Mark (seated beside Kyle Saylors at the main table, the room filled with 40 Dreamers from all walks of mostly media life, at both ends of the spectrum of famous, said to the room at large, after I gave my 60 second summary of myself, which each of us did) "I'd like to see anyone top that."


At the first 2017 dinner there had been a dozen people. I hadn't really known what it was we were doing. I thought we were supposed to tell our life story. After all, we had all night and had just started dinner. Now I understood a bit better and Kyle had learned to set a timer for 60 seconds. So this time I stood up when it was my turn and I said...


"I'm Angel Isaacs. I married Robin Isaacs who was the Senior Staff Engineer at Dresser Industries in Houston, Texas, Magcobar. He was the first person in history to use a computer to monitor the drilling of an oil well. We bought Evins Mill from Senator Edgar Evins' family in Smithville, Tennessee. I turned it into a private hideaway for Gospel Music and Contemporary Christian Music songwriters and recording artists. Amy Grant made the video for "Lead Me On" at my waterfalls. It was the top Christian video of all time upon its release. My husband, Robin, died. After he died I brought a lawsuit against Mobil (Exxon-Mobil) and Dresser Industries. I know God has told us not to take our brothers to law but I did it anyway. I was thinking, "David and Goliath." It was for a billion dollars ($678 million times 2 I thought at the time, two defendants). We proved, in Federal Court, that Robin's Drilling Data Center technology was saving and benefitting Mobil, Exxon-Mobil, and other major oil companies over $100 million dollars per year. In 1985 I had prayed, "Dear God, if there is something I don't understand about Christianity would you please teach me?" So I had been following him as hard as I could as he showed me things. I went into the courthouse bathroom in the middle of our lawsuit, knelt down on the floor, and prayed, "Dear God, this lawsuit is for a billion dollars. You know that doesn't have the power to take me away from you. I give you every single penny if there is someway you can use it for your glory." Thirty seconds later I went back into the courthouse room and the judge did stuff no one expected and that no one thought he really had the right to do, everyone there was totally shocked, and he took every single penny from me. So I lost every single thing I had. Except I didn't really lose it because I had just sacrificed it before he did that. So, after that, I studied and got a Master of Divinity from Lipscomb in Nashville. I already had a BA in Radio/TV film from Abilene Christian University. Then I spent a decade and 15,000 hours retranslating the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, I did that twice. It doesn't say ANYTHING like they've TOLD us it says. I'm a writer. I have a small Central Texas television series and I write short-stories about what the Bible really DOES say. I'm matching that up with physics." 60 seconds.


The entire room was hushed and shocked. I saw several people's jaws drop as they listened intently. Mark said, "I'd like to see anyone try to top that. NO one can," and Kyle moved on to the next person's 60 seconds. That happened two nights ago, July 7, 2023 at the Dallas, Texas "Dinner with Dreamers," hosted by Kyle Saylors with around 40 Dreamers present.




This is Sylvester Stallone's current body double/stunt double in "Tulsa King." He was at the Dinner for Dreamers July 6, 2023.

The next day... I had rented a room the night before at Spa Castle. I found it 3 years ago and have stayed there about 4 times now. It is luxurious and has hot water spas everywhere. EVERYWHERE. I love it. Mark stayed long after I did at the Dreamer's Dinner. I wanted to get back to my lovely room. I'm not really a people person like Mark is. It usually goes, "Angel, I want to introduce you to.... someone famous..." And I say, "Maark, I don't WANT to, stop it." Then he puts me on a three way phone call and tells me who to say hello to. "Angel, say hello to Sam, he's famous as.... Angel, say hello to..." "...Maarkk, I don't WANT to..." SO, I had left the dinner long before Mark did. He had a local job the next day and had invited me to go with him but I had declined, saying that I had paid for my Spa Castle room and didn't have to check out until noon and I wasn't going to miss a second of it. Around 11:30 Mark was still at his job, he'd said he'd call or text probably around 1 and then we could go to the Spa for the day. But I was hungry and I had a $100. gift certificate to my favorite restaurant, Pappadeaux, which was right down the road. I texted him I was going to check out and then go eat. He convinced me to come to his job instead and we'd go together and then to the Spa. I usually let Mark win.











At Pappadeaux...


Mark: "Kyle had a 2 hour meeting yesterday with Cary and Chuck. Let's call him and invite him to lunch, he owes me one."



Angel: "OH YOU MEAN YOU DID IT!!!!! YOU set up the meeting with Cary Solomon and Chuck Konzelman!!!!!!"


Mark: "Maybe I should have gone with them. No, Kyle won't forget." Mark was referring to the "way it is done" with honor in the entertainment industry. It usually isn't done with honor. But for God's kids there is a different standard. Kyle and Mark were God's kids. This whole short-story of mine is showing you how we - God's kids - do things. We do it with love, friendship, trust, and honor.





Angel: "Maybe Kyle can get them to go on the cruise with us." For once in my life I was interested in meeting Mark's famous friends. Mark had just made a movie, "Nefarious," with Cary Solomon and Chuck Konzelman. They produced, "God is Not Dead," and many of the hard-hitting-truth major Christian feature films. Glenn Beck had actually closed Nefarious, with a scene. Mark had opened it. Now Kyle, the guy who invented the idea of "let's all be friends and work together" on a grand scale had spend 2 hours with them, at a lunch, in Dallas, the day before, because of Mark.





Mark: "What did you mean when you spoke at the Dreamer's Dinner and said, "The Bible doesn't say anything like they've told us it says?"


Angel: "It says there is a set of laws for the physical realm (Earth) and there is another set of laws for the spiritual realm (Heaven). Heaven is over Earth. The spiritual is superior to, over, the physical. This is what the entire Bible is talking about from Genesis to Revelation. This and only this. It explains how it all works. Once you have obeyed the spiritual laws it creates a blueprint inside of you for you to understand the physical laws. I am guessing this is HOW the pyramids were actually designed. They knew about this. They kept the spiritual laws and then just looked inside of themselves to see what the physical laws are. It ties into physics. That's WHY I now have created an entire library around me at home. I've collected all the books I need to finish figuring this out. I just wrote, "Galilee and Cern" not that long ago."


And this is WHY I'm interested in Mark, the guy who helped convince Sylvester Stallone to put scenes of Rocky praying in his movies, Gigi, my friend who grasps what I am saying and lives it, Kyle, the guy who created a group of media dreamers who become friends so they can help each other, and Cary Solomon and Chuck Konzelman, the producers of the big Christian films who aren't afraid to put the truth out there, have now all been woven together by my Father, God.


We've started the collider. THIS is how it's done. xo


Google quote: What does the CERN collider do?


"The Large Hadron Collider is the most powerful accelerator in the world. It boosts particles, such as protons, which form all the matter we know. Accelerated to a speed close to that of light, they collide with other protons. These collisions produce massive particles, such as the Higgs boson or the top quark."
