Donate to FGGAM On July 4th I will be 62! My Mom, Ruth, was born on July 5th and it will be 6 years ago this August that God called me out of KKIM to form FGGAM with Sharon! It has been a tremendous blessing to serve! Sharon didn’t hesitate at all with me walking away from my very well paid radio job! She is my partner forever! Sharon has sacrificed much in our service. Thanks to the Board of FGGAM, our supporters, listeners, readers and all the volunteer writers at FGGAM! We celebrate God’s Glory with House of Hope in Windom, Minnesota August 10 and 11. Nearly 6 million visitors to the website in 6 years! I also have grown much as a man of God and as a Pastor by serving at the First Baptist Church in Reserve NM
It will be 6 years serving in Reserve come December! So blessed to also celebrate 40 years in radio this year! I continue with the airing of our radio ministry program “House of Hope” radio on 6 stations. Sharon and I love you all more than you know! God has blessed us beyond our wildest dreams!
I have to say for God’s Glory Alone that we have had a huge increase in visits to the website this year, despite so many choices for news and inspiration.
Thanks to Pastor Paul Holt for being our webmaster! Love you bro!
Therefore, as it is written: “Let the one who boasts boast in the Lord.” 1 Cor 1:31
Life Verse for Founding Pastor Dewey Moede:
“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

Pastor Dewey Moede Co-Founder of FGGAM received this email this week. We wanted to share it with you, to boast in our Lord and to inspire you in your relationship with others. The words we speak into others can be eternal…..Scott worked with Dewey at WFRN Christian radio in South Bend/Elkhart, Indiana back in the early 90’s. Speak Jesus into others….the love of Jesus.
As the Scriptures say, “If you want to boast, boast only about the LORD.” 2 Corinthians 10:17
So encourage each other and build each other up, just as you are already doing. 1 Thessalonians 5:11
One of Pastor Dewey’s favorite sayings that he has had for years is….”Integrity makes decisions based on eternal implications”
As I sit in a waiting room at South Bend’s Memorial Hospital, I can’t help remember all the time that we spent in this same hospital over two decades ago. With five pregnancies in just four and a half years, it was a time in our lives we will never forget. I started working in the sales department at WFRN radio just one month before our first baby was born (she’s 25 now). I’ve been reading about the Israelites journey from Egypt to the promise land recently, and it is clear that not only was God dealing with them in the present, He was also preparing them for what was to come. Looking back, my time at WFRN represents a wilderness journey for me. Four premature babies, a miscarriage, and two funerals shaped both me and my path. As a young parent, I was still finding my way into adulthood and learning to become the leader of my home. In that time, and in that place, you became my “Moses”. My wife and I had plenty of passion for the Lord, but applying that into our everyday lives in the midst of physical, emotional and financial stress wasn’t always clear. Thank you for being more than just my boss. Thank you for being more than a counselor, a mentor, and my “coach”. Thank you for being my friend.
Much time has passed now, and our paths have led us in different directions. No longer am i a young man, I am grandpa. My wife and I are now serving full time with Time to Revive and are able to see God do some incredible and amazing things. Our journey is far from over, but I feel like in spite of all these things, we are living in the promised land. Thanks for the memories Dewey, and most of all, thanks for still calling me your friend.
Much love to you and many blessings to FGGAM,
Scott & Nicki Troyer
