Friends of FGGAM: Sonja From My Hometown Shares With Us


Let us all be encouraged by this post! Amen!

Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing. 1 Thessalonians 5:11

As FGGAM comes up on our 2nd year of service to our Lord, our friends from all over are sharing God’s Glory Alone!

Dewey and I were classmates as we grew up together in Minnesota and have known each other for over 50 years. Our hometown, Windom was a wonderful place to grow up! Living in a small town, you know everyone…so, we were friends, but not close friends at that time. Throughout our school years, I thought Dewey was so quiet and shy…almost painfully shy! I don’t remember that our conversations were much more than two words…I would say, “Hi Dewey” and he would wave to me. After graduation from high school, we lost track of each other and haven’t seen one another since 1974. Fortunately, through social media, we reconnected on Facebook. I was surprised and astonished to see the person that Dewey had become! Never in a million years would I have predicted that he would be a radio pastor! From my perspective, that required him to talk and interact with people…and he does it so, so well! Our friendship has grown…and I can tell you that Dewey has a heart of gold! He is authentic, sensible, kind, speaks life into others and is in alignment with God. He is truly an encourager and helps me to see things in new ways. My cup runs over to have him as a friend!

God is so good! I have watched Him work through Dewey, as FGGAM was conceived, established and has grown in leaps and bounds in the last two years. I am thankful for this ministry and I am amazed at how many people have been touched by it. To me, Dewey is living proof that God doesn’t call the qualified, He qualifies the called. Congratulations, my friend, on a job well done…keep doing what you are doing!!!  in our native Minnesotan tongue…Ya, sure, ya betcha!

In gratitude & your friend, Sonja Haldeman in Surprise, Arizona

Sonja and friends, I think back on that shy business and just shake my head, now people can’t get me to shut up! LOL! LOL!

Thank you for the kind words Sonja!

It was D.L. Moody who said, “I thought when I became a Christian I had nothing to do but just lay my oars in the bottom of the boat and float along. But I soon found out I would have to go against the current!”

Amen! That is the world we live in!

FGGAM, the light of Jesus Christ to one person at a time, for HIS Glory Alone! Pictured here is Sonja and Steve Haldeman! Thank you for your support Sonja and Steve!
