Your sincere thoughts and requests would be deeply appreciated...
Our son, Andrew, reached out to some in in Mexico, and we're so grateful to God! We do not know her, but she is seeking the truth and lives somewhere close to Cancun. Our hope is that you'll be praying for her and her family.
I forgot to post this, but yesterday, April 25th last year was the day I started reading "Muscle and a Shovel". The mind-blowing revelations and the battles in my head that would take place in the weeks following are unforgettable to me. The struggle continued even after I obeyed the true gospel.
Muscle and a Shovel was a key instrument in my drastic and sudden life-change that led me here to Sunset International Bible Institute in Lubbock, TX all the way from Pittsburgh, PA. I figured, if that source (Muscle and a Shovel) taught me that much, what could the Source of the source teach me?!
I'm reliving that time of profound revelation over again as my memories pop up on Facebook :) One of the most memorable time of my life, and I'm sure it will continue to be. No doubt.
We truly need the body. So many varieties of gifts, talents, and passion to be used for the benefit of each other. I have been eternally blessed by yours, Brother. Team Jesus!!!!

I'm not supposed to tell you, but I'm going to... Jonetta is writing her story... I think she'll be done with it in about a month or so... it's about how she got through our struggles (from the woman's perspective: spiritually, mentally, emotionally...) that you read about in When Shovels Break.
Personally, I think it's going to help so many good people (she was scared and reluctant).
Here's the amazing part (to me)... I've read the first few chapters and its blown me away! Couldn't believe how well she writes! Crazy!!!!!!!!!!! And the spiritual applications she makes (what I love about her writing is how real she is while applying the scriptures).
I know she'll see this post eventually, but she doesn't manage this FB page or account. I'm not linking her to this post, so maybe she won't see this for a while... ... See MoreSee Less
GREAT STORY OF A YOUNG MAN PUTTING ON JESUS CHRIST:
CRAZY SMALL WORLD – GAVE ME CHILLS!
Got a message via FB that shocked me! Remember how Jonetta and I met on a blind date at her best friend’s house in Harrisburg (in Muscle and a Shovel)? Her best friend’s name was Sherri Stevens.
Sherri’s nephew, Tj Brown (who lives in my home town of Eldorado, IL) was given Muscle and a Shovel by Sherri’s mom (Daisy). He read the story and was baptized into Christ on his 23rd birthday last year (and we just found out about this news)! Thank God for Daisy! And thank God for this young man’s good and honest heart.
Tj is a young man who obeyed the gospel in a part of the country where it is a mission field. Can you imagine how tough it would be to be a new Christian in an area where the Lord’s body is scarce?
I hope you might take a moment to encourage Tj and welcome him to the body of the Lord found in the New Testament! His FB email is:
May God continue to receive the honor and glory! Muscle and a Shovel is just a humble flawed tool that points souls to the Bible and to the gospel of Jesus Christ! God bless you, Tj! ... See MoreSee Less
Had a wonderful Sun. Morning service. My grand-daughter's boyfriend was baptized into his Lord. I had given him the Muscle and Shovel books couple of weeks ago, and he told me between the book and Kaitlin talking to him, he made the decision to be baptized!! What a blessing you have been to so many thousands of people. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. In Christian Love,
