Precious OFRH Family,

HOW GREAT IS OUR GOD! On August 21 my wife Janene, our son Timothy, and myself had been guided to a very remote location near the western border of Idaho, high above the Snake River. There, with some dear friends who own a ranch in Idaho, we witnessed the breathtaking total solar eclipse. We could see the darkness rushing at us from the west, first down in distant valleys and then overtaking our mountain lookout. We sang “How Great Thou Art.” And that’s the CD we’ve decided to offer this month. There are 16 uplifting songs by the OFRH men’s quartet. (If you’re planning to make a donation to the ministry and want to order the CD, simply add $12.50 to your gift and ask for September’s C D.)

It’s amazing to think that the sun is 400 times larger than the moon but is 400 times farther away from us and, therefore, both appear the same size from our vantage point. Otherwise, the moon couldn’t have completely covered the sun as it did. Is this just a coincidence? I think not! In Genesis 1:14 we read that God created these two great lights for signs and seasons, days and years. This same awesome, all-powerful Creator who, with such precision, created the universe also created you. Your body is a mini-universe also functioning with precision (most of the time). And the Creator loves you perfectly.

In his Bible lessons this month, Dr. Fuller will highlight Moses and then Rahab who lived in the city of Jericho. Both of them yielded themselves to the Lord and witnessed results beyond all they could ask or think. Sometimes each of us needs the reminder to yield ourselves fully to God, remembering that we were created to know Him, to know ourselves, and to let Him into each room of our hearts so that He might do the miracle of transforming us into all He created us to be. The life-changing little booklet, “My Heart, Christ’s Home,” explains this in detail, and we’d be pleased to send a copy to you. Just request it the next time you call or write. It will be sent free of charge. We’d love to hear from you.

Here are a couple of encouraging notes we received last month. From Fredericksburg, Virginia : “Thanks for Dr. Fuller’s Gospel of the Grace of God preaching which brings joy to my heart and comfort to my soul. God bless you all!” And then: “I would like to thank you for your Radio Program. I have been listening for about six months now on Phoenix, AZ 1010 AM KXXT. I really enjoy the sermons and the beautiful music, especially Jericho Road and Rock of Ages. Please keep up the great work…God bless you all.”

Basking in the Heavenly Sunshine of God’s blessings,

    What a blessing to once again hear these radio broadcasts! My father died very suddenly in 1932 when I was not quite three years old. My grandmother, “Mama” Mills, came to live with us, and I remember at an early age joining her in the sun parlor of our home to hear Dr. Fuller preach God’s word and listen to the gospel music of the OFRH choir accompanied by Rudy Attwood on the piano. What a treasure!

    My grandmother came to live with us when my father died in August 1932. It was in the depth of The Great Depression, and I would be three years old that November. I remember as a young boy sitting with Mama Mills in the sun parlor of our home as she tuned in The Old Fashion Revival Hour radio program and we heard the gospel music and preaching from The Word by Dr. Charles E. Fuller. What a blessing at age 85 to again be able to access this great resource through the Internet. May God bless these transmissions to every listener! Amen

  3. May Jesus bless you as you reach out to our sin soaked world, who will soon see their Judge, or Saviour!

    I grew up listening to the OFRH in the 1950s from Radio Luxemberg between 11pm and midnight each Thursday night.I have enjoyed the music for many years and I even managed to obtain some transript discs of the broadcasts from the 1950s which have now been digitally remastered by a friend in the USA so that I can relive the broadcasts on CD.I can now listen on line and praise God for the technology that makes it possible.I got to know Dick Brown in 1997 during the 50years celebrations at Fuller and kept in touch and visited him several times until the Lord called him home.

    Amelia, I thank you for your letter. I am truly humbled after reading it. No matter what our circumstances the Lord will use us to reach out for others. I too have had chronic pain for decades. For too long I dwelt on the pain and wished that my life would be shortened because of it. For many years the Holy Spirit had kept after me to repent and put the Lord God back as the directer of my life. Earlier this year I finally decided that nothing in life was going to be satisfying or able to fill that great void in my heart and soul. I got down on my knees and prayed earnestly to be forgiven and to put Christ at the head of my life. Since then God has given me a peace that i haven’t experienced since my youth. I have given God my future and I do not spend time worrying what is in store for me. Instead I live each day to the fullest and ask god to give me wisdom, strength, and power to witness to others by my example and to witness directly to them when he leads. I have as many or more problems facing me now than ever before but my Lord God is always faithful to give me wisdom and the means to work things out. I now love to witness to others because I want them to experience the awesome peace the God provides without fail.
    Sister Amelia, you are in my prayers for I know the challenges that chronic pain presents. May God continue to bless you and help you in your life daily in your ministy to others. God will surely bless you for it.

  6. I first found you on the radio in 1971,I believe. I was just baptised in the Holy Spirit and I was so excited about Jesus and frustrated that all my life I had not been told about the power of the Holy Spirit. When that happened I was praying for all sorts of people in the my kitchen. The first year, sixteen people came for prayer and accepted Jesus. I was a Catholic and on fire for God. I was able to have the Lord also baptize my 80 year old mother. She lived far away in another state. I went to visit her in ND and she got a new dose of real Jesus stuff. My mom said to me she saw such peace in me compared to her other children. That’s what the Holy Spirit does! I was widowed at age 32 when my husband died at age 34 after our 5th child was born.

    My life has been very hard. I’m going to be 80 this mo. I’m post-polio and extreme pain. I will possibly live 20 more years and wish it would not be because of the pain and isolation.

    I want to explain my view on the financial problems existing now. Our world is full of rebellious people who are rejecting God. Combined with the severe unemployment and loss of homes, homelessness, the enemy feels he is having a victory because so many ministries are failing now. But we have to be bold and reach out to people on the street, whereever we go daily. It is so ripe for harvest now. The hurting people will pray with us.
    I prayed with a man that fixed my chair at a sheel metal shop. He listened and shared w/me. He was the owner and refused to take payment. So I got another chance to pray with him when I went back to give him two magnetic necklaces for his 9 yr old daughter. He was a Catholic and hadn’t been to church in years. But he prayed with me and teared up. Same thing just happened at Les Schwabs (tires & brakes) when I asked a man if he was having a rough day. He teared up as we prayed right there in the waiting area. I sat down and took his hand and there Jesus was,,, I’ve prayed w/people at Fred Meyers often.
    The Christians are not doing enough to witness and we can be bold. Speak up—don’t be embarrassed. That’s a lie of the devil. Embarrassment is just pride anyway, afraid others might think we are weird. That’s another of his lies.
    My parents lived to be 100. I am the youngest of nine children and seven are still alive. My other siblings do not know about the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. I led my sister’s four children to Jesus. Like “Jesus could convert no one in Nazareth”, sort of applies to me as many family members felt I was peculiar now. I led my oldest sibling to Jesus about one year before he died. He was a pilot, WWII, shot down and suffered pain. He had a PHD and had turned his back on God, doubting His reality. One visit to him in Montana going to see my parents and he found Jesus . I never knew or expected he’d die so soon but he was ready. He knew Jesus! Wow!

    I want to thank you for your loving broadcasts etc. I have a computer only because my neighbor provides/connects me to his PC by wireless for free. How blessed I am. Yet I need prayer and am struggling financially and in spirit as so many sadnesses and so many medical needs. I see Pain Specialist. Neurologist, Orthopedic surgeon, Gastroenterologist, G.P. and more. I get so tired of going to doctors and the cost of gas!
    This is too lengthy. But I wanted to thank you for your love and I shall pray for new donors. You have blessed me beyond expression. I love to hear your music as you come on the radio. I wish I had a way to tape your broadcasts so I could listen again as I’m lying down to sleep.
    I’m nothing in this world and yet I am something to Jesus. You are doing the Lord’s blessed work. It is the Spirit of God coming through strongly over the airwaves. The Spirit is so evident even tho many do not have it, the Holy Spirit draws them with your ministry. Praise His Holy Name! I love you all. Thank you.
