Good Morning Dear Friends!
It has been so very busy here at the ministry!
We thank you for all your love and support. It has been a slow time for love offerings, would you please pray about an offering to FGGAM, we are a 501-c3 non-profit ministry.
As many of you know FGGAM is soon to be 5 years old on August 1st, our website actually started in July, so we are already celebrating what God has done and his doing. For HIS GLORY!
Saturday I awoke at 430am to water our trees and bushes. I was able to do our yard work and the yards of two women in need, no charge of course! I love yard work! I have mowed lawns since I was 9! I had a lawn mowing business!!!!! Nobody ever has to tell me about working! Lol!!! My Dad and Mom taught me well! I had my first paper route at 10 years old!!! Then I took two routes on, The Worthington Daily Globe and the Mpls Star/Tribune.
I have worked so many years, I am not bragging, I am stating.
I do not even look at the clock, you see for me, work is not work, it is the work assigned me by Jesus Christ.
When you work for Jesus, He gives you the energy and wisdom and tells you when to rest! I know!
The key here is a close relationship with Jesus, so you know the work you should be doing! I feel bad for people that never know the work God intended them to do.
“But my life is worth nothing to me unless I use it for finishing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus—the work of telling others the Good News about the wonderful grace of God.” -Acts 20:24
Life Verse for Founding Pastor Dewey Moede
PS: if you find yourself complaining about your job and watching the clock, I would say you are in the wrong job! Way too many people that complain to me, watch the clock and constantly complain, but way too many do not truly hear God and what He wants you to do!
Seek HIS face now!
FGGAM Devotional By Vice Chairman Pastor Bill Ruhl
August 1, 2017 – Five years of ministry
Five (5) in Hebrew is alphabetically represented as the letter “Hei” which was originally pictured as a man with hands lifted up as if to say, “Behold”.
As we look back over five years of ministry at FGGAM, we can lift up our hands to the Lord in praise and declare, “Hei”, Behold…look what the Lord has done! By His grace, His disproportionate favor, God has accomplished far beyond what Dewey could see or imagine at the beginning. FGGAM just moved ahead in faith, relying on God’s grace to carry this ministry through…Grace to go from level to level to level…Glory to glory to glory! God’s grace, His strength, in the face of what looked like unsurmountable circumstances, proved to be the overwhelming power to move FGGAM from victory to victory.
So we celebrate this time by shouting aloud, “Hei! Behold, look and see what the Lord has done. Surely goodness and grace shall follow me all the days of my life…And I shall dwell in the House of The Lord forever!” Amen

Sharon and I thank you all for your support. We thank the Board Members of FGGAM, Vice-Chairman Bill Ruhl, Wanell Pate, Barbara Gould and Sonia Haylett for their leadership and accountability! We have 40 writers who contribute their God given talents in writing for God, we are so thankful for them. At this point in my life my favorite thing God has given me is a wonderful, loving relationship with Him, my wife Sharon, and our kids and grandchild Lilith and we have another coming soon! LOL!
My favorite thing to do that God has assigned me, is to preach JESUS!! I have learned so very much in my time preaching on the road in New Mexico, especially with all my Dear friends at FBC in Reserve, where I now serve. I also am thankful for the time the Lord game me with all my friends at FBC in Quemado! The high point in the ministry has been the revival last year in my hometown of Windom, Minnesota.
Please pray for us, for more Godly wisdom as we go into year six. We now do radio ministry in Minnesota on three stations. We are also blessed to be on the HUB of New Mexico! We have two huge revivals coming up. We also work with WFRN radio in South Bend/Elkhart, Indiana, where I got my start in Christian radio!
Counseling takes a good amount of out time, whether it is marriage counseling, grief counseling, drug/alcohol counseling, stress/anxiety counseling, so much that right now. We also have folks that we refer people to.
Hospital and nursing home visits, it is a joy to bring the comfort of Jesus to many.
Our website reaches the world for Jesus. News and inspiration through a Biblical lens. Thousands visit us monthly. We thank Pastor Paul Holt for managing the site! PTL!
Please pray about a monthly love offering to FGGAM. We would be so thankful as we go into year six, thank you. FGGAM is a 501c3 non-profit ministry.
Read this from Dr. Jim Denison at FGGAM.ORG:
Adam Grant is an organizational psychologist and professor at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School. He has been hired by companies such as Google, Wells Fargo, and Warner Brothers to talk about managing people. In an interview published yesterday, he made a statement that is both simple and significant: “What we spend the majority of our waking lives doing should be something we find really valuable and rewarding.”
You would think it wouldn’t take a best-selling psychologist to point out this fact. But are you following his advice? What mission defines your life?
Here’s a better question: Whose mission defines your life?
Jordan Spieth won yesterday’s British Open in record fashion. I watched the tournament on television and was astounded by his performance over the last five holes. His temperament in facing adversity was absolutely remarkable. Spieth is not yet twenty-four years old, but his maturity is already legendary.
Now consider the player who almost defeated him. Matt Kuchar is a thirty-nine-year-old golf pro who has never won a major championship. He was leading the tournament before Spieth rallied with three birdies and an eagle to win the title. As difficult as the loss was, Kuchar never lost the smile and gracious spirit that have made him so popular with players and fans.
Besides golf, what do they have in common?
Spieth’s faith in Christ is widely known. But Kuchar is also among a group of golf professionals who follow Jesus. They attend Bible studies and prayer meetings and are committed to using their influence for God’s Kingdom.
Not surprisingly, after Spieth won the title, he told reporters, “I believe Matt Kuchar will win a major championship. And I believe that he’ll do it sometime soon. He’s a great champion and he’s such a great person. And he’s a great individual to look up to. He’s one of these guys, when I talk about having great role models on the PGA Tour, and I’m fortunate in that, he’s at the top of the class.”
What “class” do you aspire to be at the top of?
There is only one way to live a life of transcendent, transformational purpose: we must give ourselves to the transcendent, transformational King of the universe. David testified: “I cry out to God Most High, to God who fulfills his purpose for me” (Psalm 57:2). Before God can do the latter, David must do the former.
So must we.
Rick Warren: “You were made by God and for God, and until you understand that, life will never make sense.” Does your life make sense?
