I don’t want to see another attack on this nation. Pray for leadership, pray for Israel, pray that Christians will rise up from the ash and take back what liberalism and acceptance of wrong has deprived our nation of.

Randy Thom of Lakefield, Minnesota (Randy is originally from Windom, Minn and a boyhood friend!)  wanted to share this with us after yesterday’s posting on Death and Eternal Thinking……..This is one of the MOST POWERFUL TESTIMONIES THAT YOU WILL EVER READ! .
Randal Thom
I would like to share part of my
life after I lost my brother in a tragic airplane crash on September 21, 1991.
We had crashed in the Sierra Nevada Mountains near Placerville California. I was airlifted out by lifeflight and on arrival to UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento, I came too and asked the lifeflight nurse if my brother Darrell had survived, she squeezed my hand, and said no they were not able to save him.
My brother Darrell was a very gifted and blessed man, I loved him dearly. I cried out to Jesus and said, why why did you take Darrell, Why God did you allow this to happen, why God did I have to survive??
As I began my long hard recovery, this thought was the prevailing thought almost every minute. I do believe looking back, God was talking to me and telling me he loved me, but I refused to open my ears. Then came the word that the church our family grew up in, and all of us kids were confirmed in, including my brother Darrell had refused to allow my Mother to have Darrells burial service in the church. I was livid, I was really angry then, I decided I would have nothing absolutely nothing to do with Christians, with God with churches with Jesus. NOTHING..
Well when I made that declaration on my life, I fully invited the devil to take my hand and lead me down a road of complete and utter destruction. Where was God? He was there, he was loving me, he was giving me my choices, he was pouring grace mercy over me.
I became severely addicted to cocaine and crack. Nothing mattered to me except the getting and doing the drugs daily. I hated life, I hated myself, daily I wanted to die.
God put a protective hand around me, and many many times in my addiction he saved me from sure death.
One day in Minneapolis I was doing a drug buy, the dealers decided to rob me instead. The had a gun and pointed at me, I said, shoot me, I don’t care, I hate life, you will be doing me a favor. The guy pulled the trigger the gun misfired. He then pistol whipped me, and as he was running away, I yelled,, next time bring a gun that works. He stopped turned around and pulled the trigger again, this time the gun fired. Where did the bullet go? Into Jesus hand I believe today.
I continued to run from God, from his blessings. Finally he allowed me to get arrested for a large amount of cocaine and I was looking at some real serious time in prison.
I went to my Mothers house and attempted suicide by suffocation. God stepped in and saved me from myself. It was then, I decided, God truly loved me and today I am thankful for his love of me daily.
So what I am wanting to say with this is this,,,,, If you are tempted to be angry at God when bad things happen to good people, do not do as I did, and run from him. I know first hand that the devil will only lead you to more sadness to more pain to more hurt. Instead, if you are in this situation, Lean into and lean onto Jesus, His love for you is more than you can ever imagine.
POWERFUL! POWERFUL! WOW! What a testimony! Praise God Randy for your boldness in Jesus to share your story! 
Now let us share this letter from the heart………….
grace and Peter
This letter is from the heart to any and all who might cross paths with my friend, my Pastor, Dewey Moede, and might have the blessing and opportunity to come in contact with the good works of his ministry, ‘For God’s Glory Alone Ministries’. (FGGAM)
Dewey and I have been friends, and later colleagues in the radio industry, from the time I first moved to Albuquerque in 1998. I have known Dewey well these many years; I know his dedication, his work ethic, his loyalty and his faithfulness to our Lord, Jesus. And because I know Dewey, I can personally attest to the tremendous personal and spiritual growth with which he has been blessed. And, by which the Lord blesses others through him.
Dewey and I stayed in touch over the years and traded updates on our children, exchanged warm messages of love and support as we both endured the pain of divorce, and prayed for one another as we each journeyed on our path to Christ. When Dewey shared with me that he was to become formally ordained as a minister, I was delighted! He was so committed to God’s work that he was dedicating his life to it. Plus, the Lord had brought him a lovely help-mate, Sharon, to be his wife and his partner in this new and sacred adventure. I could not have been happier for him. I was inspired to further commit my own life to the Lord as I’d already seen such abundant and positive changes in Dewey’s life that I hoped to emulate.
And so, when God saw fit to bless me with a Godly partner and we wished to marry, Dewey was the only choice. I did not know at the time that my husband Peter and I would be Dewey’s first marriage ceremony, but he was truly exceptional. Before our closest family and friends, Peter and I committed our lives to one another and Dewey brought much love and meaning to our special day. Dewey invoked the Holy Spirit and joined us before God in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; it was perfect. I have no doubt the Holy Spirit truly moved among us that day. And every day since, our family continues to feel God’s presence in our lives for which we are eternally grateful.
A little time passed and about a year ago, Dewey called to say he was leaving his full time job to dedicate his life, and all his days, to shepherding God’s people. I was in awe. And I knew I was meant to help him. What Dewey did not know at the time, was that I had recently studied in the book of Malachi and as a result, I’d committed myself to tithing. I do attend weekly services at a church that I love, and I had been tithing there, though sporadically. So I’d asked the Lord for guidance as to where He would have me allocate my tithe as I had a gut feeling I wasn’t doing quite what He wanted. It was just a few days later that Dewey called.
God answered my question. And in doing so, the Lord affirmed for me that Dewey was indeed called to this special work, and it was his time to mobilize. As for me and my house, we shall serve the Lord, in whatever manner He decides. And boy, had He decided!
Bring the whole tithe (the full tenth) into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. “Test me in this,” says the LORD Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.” – Malachi 3:10
This is the only place in all scripture where God asks us to test Him.
Sincerely, I would personally never presume to actually ‘test’ God, but I understood that the Lord had to be deadly serious in extending this dare. And I wanted to be obedient (I admit, this is sometimes a problem for me). But since then, I can humbly attest that the Lord has abundantly blessed my family with favor and kindness that I can’t even begin to describe here.
But far, far more importantly, I have witnessed what our modest contribution to FGGAM has done for the many people that Dewey and his lovely wife Sharon have ministered to, and how passionately they carry out our Father’s work. Dewey and Sharon bring God’s message of love, healing, comfort and surrender to so many souls who may have otherwise lost hope. Dewey himself is up every morning before the birds to spend some personal time with the Lord and to send out a daily boost of faith in his ‘Daily Cup’ blog… not to mention producing a TV ministry program, officiating at a variety of services all over the state of New Mexico, attending a diverse assortment of prayer meetings (including at the ‘Round House’ in our state’s capital for a day of prayer with our Governor) and even making time for coffee and a personal prayer with a friend, whenever one is in need. I have personally been thusly blessed on a number of occasions.
Dewey covers a lot of ground in the process of spreading God’s word. The Lord must surely trust this man as He places opportunities to minister at every turn, including even in the softball league where Dewey coaches and plays during the summer league months.
If my small offering helps Dewey and Sharon bring others to Christ and spread His message of peace and comfort and hope, then I, too, have been profoundly, immeasurably blessed! And in ways far more important and life-altering than simple worldly treasures. Dewey provides a living, dynamic example of what an obedient, Godly life can mean to the people around it. His experience demonstrates for the rest of us God’s mercy, generosity and His willingness to open doors, to bless absolutely and even to grant the gift of prophecy, as Dewey has already experienced on a number of occasions.
For this formerly “rebellious stiff-neck”, the realization that I have been called to bear witness to the growth and development of this ministry moves me to tears that I might be entrusted with so important a task. I promise you, I am not worthy. The love and dedication that Dewey and Sharon bring to their mission is both awe inspiring and rousing to the spirit as God has clearly hand-picked these lovely people. One can only hope to follow their example. Even so, they always put the Lord first, as even the name of their ministry says it all, “For God’s Glory Alone”.
If you have not yet visited their website, I urge you to do so, now and often. Dewey and his wonderful contributors offer a broad selection of brilliant inspiration, world news from a Christian perspective, videos from ‘Dewey & Friends’ TV broadcasts and even a prayer wall where you may post your burdens and concerns to be prayed over by a growing army of prayer warriors that Dewey has almost single-handedly recruited – literally from around the world! All of this and more is readily available to you – including personal access to Pastor Dewey – at www.fggam.org.
All that said, I’d like to leave you with a parting thought, also from the book of Malachi…
Then those who feared the LORD talked with each other, and the LORD listened and heard. A scroll of remembrance was written in His presence concerning those who feared the LORD and honored His name. “They will be my people”, says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies. “On the day when I act in judgment, they will be my own special treasure. I will spare them as a father spares an obedient child.” – Malachi 3:16-17
Surely Dewey and Sharon Moede are already well noted in God’s holy ‘scroll of remembrance’. The rest of us, we need only gather a mustard seed of faith and follow in obedience.
Wishing you showers of blessings.
Yours in Christ,
Grace Cordova-Kalberer
