Father George Maddock – a role model who will be missed

With all the talk about the current state of the Catholic church, we forget the many who do great work for the Lord. People like Father George. He was my theology teacher at Father Duenas Memorial School at Mangilao, Guam. He taught me one of the greatest lessons I learned. He taught me how to love Christ in the real world.

This was a man that was after the heart of Christ. I’m not an emotional person by any means but this one got to me. Father George was a molder of men and we are all better sons, husbands, brothers, cousins, uncles, Etc. because of this man. He is the reason why I know the books of the Bible (Ror Cor Gal Eph Philly Col…) and even prepared me for my move to Tampa by sharing what the world outside of Guam was like. Rest easy Father George. I thank you for being an example to many of what love for Christ really looks like. Till next time in heaven. FORTES IS FIDE.

When the Holy Spirit uses WE ARE MESSENGERS to lift you up (letter from April)

During the WE ARE MESSENGERS concert in Macon, GA a beautiful thing took place. In between sets something caught the eye of Darren Mulligan, the lead singer of We are Messengers. Darren walked over (climbing over seats people were sitting) to hug and pray for a young lady. There was a hush on the crowd and without knowing the details, I started praying for her as well. Minutes later, Darren got on stage and continued singing as if nothing happened.

On the way home, my daughter and I were talking about that moment and were in awe on how the Holy Spirit was in that concert. What was said by Darren to that young lady was to forever be a mystery.

That was until I received a comment on my post from the concert. Turns out the lady’s name is April and this is her story.

I will 150% agree with You! I was at this concert. As a matter of fact he came off stage and prayed for me! He told me I didn’t always have to be strong, that I could let go, that is was in the Lord’s hands! What he didn’t know was I had just lost my dad the previous week. The tickets were given to me just the day before by my office manager because she had something come up. GOD knew I needed to be there! Darren spoke to me with the sweetest Irish accent, and I felt as if Jesus had his arms wrapped around me! This experience was more than you will ever get from church! And I’m proud to have had my daughter and dear friend experience this with me. Later the next day I went Darren a message on Facebook asking why of all the people at this event, Why Me? He said the Holy Spirit pointed me out to him. I will NEVER forget this moment! Watching your video still bring me chills! Cant wait for you to post more!

I have to say this was one of the most awesome thing I have ever witness. I pray April that the moments with Darren gave you the peace and comfort that can only come from Christ. In Jesus Name. Amen. PJSLB

WE ARE MESSENGERS concert – Macon, GA (04/19/18)

I was blessed tonight. I came to this concert wanting to hear a few of my favorite songs and ended up leaving with a revival. We Are Messengers aren’t just a band that makes good music; they are a band that oozes the Holy Spirit. From going into the crowd and praying with people to making eye contact with every single audience member, I am at awe at what God did on this night. Darren Mulligan rivals any pastor out there. I would travel miles and miles to hear him preach again.

You can find a link to their latest album here.

You can find the song above entitled My Victoryhere.

The night was also blessed by THE JJ WEEKS BAND and DAVID DUNN. I’ll have some highlights of their performance in the upcoming days as each performer did an amazing job and deserves the spotlight.

In the meanwhile, be blessed and walk with purpose for you are made perfectly by God.
