Then one day, I was contacted by a broadcasting company that owned Christian radio stations across America. They had found the ministry website and saw that I had been broadcasting just online. They invited me to go on the radio in 7 cities across America. I accepted their invitation. Praise JE-sus!
But this was extremely expensive and I had to sacrifice personally, which I was more than willing to do. In November 2008, I was sitting in my tent, in which I lived, and the only thing that I had to eat was the cup of soup noodles where you pour hot water into the cup. This was an improvement over the noodle packets which was only noodles and seasoning. The cups had a tiny little bit of vegetables in it. So I was thankful that now I was getting a spoon of vegetables. The only thing I had to eat for the most part, every meal, every day, for months, was the noodles. Most of the time I did not think about it too much. I was thankful for what I had and for ALL the MANY Miracles that JE-sus had already worked. I was happy and content for the most part. But you know how the flesh is. Always wanting more. I remember one day when I was sitting in my tent, eating my soup, and counted the kernels of corn in the cup. I counted 5. I confess that I felt a little sorry for myself. But to this day, I would not have done differently. Many people think that if GOD is behind something, that you will never have to go hungry, etc. But the Bible says differently. Paul said that he was hungry and naked. GOD does NOT promise riches and lack of suffering. Many times, His people DO have to sacrifice greatly even when GOD is in it.
So Anyway, Thanksgiving was coming up, and one evening, I was driving in my car and asking GOD where to go to church services for that evening. A song came on the radio which said something like "a city on a hill all lit up with lights". Then I looked up and saw a church building on a hill, all lit up with lights. I knew it was where Jesus was leading me to go for services for that evening. I entered the building and they immediately handed me a plastic sandwich bag with 5 kernels of corn in it! They were handing this out to everyone who came to services that night. The sermon included the real story of Thanksgiving, how that NOT everyone had a feast on the first thanksgiving in America. That some people only had 5 kernels of corn. So the pastor asked the congregation to take turns telling what they were thankful for. EVERY person in the building volunteered to tell what they were thankful for. I did not tell them about my situation with food. But I did share with them that I thought that the 5 kernels represented important things to me. I shared some other things that I was thankful for. Then a man said that he was especially thankful that I was there that evening and for my testimony. After services, he gave me some money. I did not tell these people my circumstances. But The Holy Spirit led this man to give me some money. And I was thankful for that. But I was and AM even MORE thankful for the 5 kernels of Corn that JEsus gave me that night. I still have those 5 kernels of corn to remind me that JEsus is real, HE hears me. HE sees me. Even when NO ONE ELSE can see, know or hear what's going on, HE KNOWS. HE SEES. HE HEARS. HE CARES.
This year, I have felt led by The Holy Spirit to start a new ministry building where we can have services indoors, plus have prophecy conferences, Christian Prepper Meetings, Video showings, distribute gospel tracts, bibles, dvd's, cd's etc AND to have a food pantry and give out free clothes. The other day, I signed the new rental contract. Praise JE-sus! On that same day, that evening, I was contacted by the director of a Christian Thrift store, who volunteered to donate a lot of free clothes to the new ministry outreach building! I did not even ask! And this was on the SAME Day that I signed the rental agreement! I could not ask for any stronger or more powerful and Amazing Confirmation! So this Thanksgiving, I have a wife! I have food! I have a new ministry building to move into soon! and JEsus is bringing the stock of clothes! I have a small local congregation of a wonderful brother and sister in Christ Jesus! I have a huge worldwide congregation of the best brothers and sisters that a man could ask for! I have JE-sus Name in my forehead and hands! I am Saved and Redeemed! I am on the radio in Detroit and Cincinnati! Many people are writing me with their testimonies of them accepting Jesus and His Truth! What more could I ask for!
Do I still have needs? Yes. But on this Thanksgiving Day, we Americans bow our heads in Thanks to The Father GOD in JE-sus Name for His Blessings that were passed down to us from Abraham, Issac and Jacob. We truly live in the land of milk and honey as HE had promised. Even the MOST poor in our nation is extremely rich by world standards! We are Blessed! Very, Very Blessed! Let's NOT dwell on what we do NOT have, but on what we DO have and WHY we have it. It's all because of JESUS! Amen.
If we do NOT have JE-sus, we do not have anything!
But if we HAVE JE-sus, We have EVERYTHING SPIRITUALLY!
IN JESUS NAME,
I Saw The Light Ministries
