Billy Graham Entered Heaven Today

Various Photos of Billy Graham

The Tragic Johnstown Flood

I’m finishing up a book on The Tragic Johnstown Flood. It occurred in 1889 and there were over 2200 people that died. It is considered the worst tragedy on US soil until 911.

The goal of the book I am completing is To Show God IN THE MIDST of Tragedy.

We often hear two disparate sides to tragedies:

  1. The Graphic Details, and
  2. The God Talk.

This book combines the two in a completely unique way. An angel, Hael (from my first novel, The Pray-ers), is giving the backstory behind many of the folks that had to deal with the Johnstown flood, Hael gives their stories before the flood, during the flood, after the flood, and many, at their actual death.

The Segue

When the Guardian Angel, Hael talks about those that die, he doesn’t end his narrative at their death, he talks about their meetings in heaven.

And yes, that is not a typo, I DID, on purpose, type in, “their meetings,” plural.

Hael talks about people waiting in heaven for the one who has just died, so that they can welcome him or her.

Line of people

Can you imagine the line of people waiting to welcome Billy Graham into heaven today?


Remembering Billy Graham

Years ago, a wonderful song was sung live by a musician who has now fallen out of favor because of his lifestyle choices. Don’t be distracted by that. On my YouTube channel, I have this video pegged in my Favorite Christian Music.

The makers of the video have marvelously uplifted Billy Graham’s life.

Let this great video encourage your life, as you remember Billy Graham.

Blessing,

Considering Removing My Photo

 

They say I’m the author, but I’m not too sure.

Nevertheless, the latest of Gretchen’s Memoirs is out.

She is writing her husband’s memoirs for their upcoming 20th wedding anniversary. Her husband is Alexander Rich, our itinerant prayer hero in the novel, The Pray-ers, Book 1, Troubles.

In these FREE short stories she constantly writes about his prayer principles.

This one will stretch you a bit, as it is about Protection, a Dinosaur and a Horse.

If you are not receiving our direct emails for these memoirs, SIGN UP HERE.

And remember that we send out E-Letters every couple of weeks, for the sole purpose of encouraging your prayer life. We NEVER, beg for money. If you are interested, please see the links below:

Note the photo near the bottom of the short story. It comes from Answers in Genesis. In fact, their “Hall of Dinosaurs” was the inspiration for this short story.

Miss Pat Loves Hael

Mama Pat and Mark S Mirza

As you listen closely to the 3 minute audio below I begin to talk about Hael, and angel in the book. You will hear this “old-gal” give a high pitched, I don’t know, whoop, screech, something. It was Freudian in nature I’m sure!

Hael Wishing Happy BirthdaySeriously she has become a good friend, in part, because of this character, this Guardian Angel in my book. And as you can tell by the picture to the left, Hael clearly likes her too, for he actually sent a birthday card to her.

She tells that the first time she read the book she, “read it in 1 day, and how far along are you Mark with the second book?” She has been a PAIN in my side, but a cute one.

She recently told a friend of mine, “You tell Mark that I’m 81 years old, and if he doesn’t get that book finished real soon he may have to read it to me in heaven!”

Her and I have had a lot of fun, except a few weeks ago when I told her I put book 2 aside so that I could focus on another novel. “But,” I told her, “Hael is the one telling the story.”

The interview below I did over the phone because I spoke in her previous church and I knew everyone would love to hear from her, even though she wouldn’t be there.

I’ve never done an interview like this before, but then I’ve never known someone like Miss Pat before.

Enjoy this short interview with my friend, Miss Pat.

If you are interested in the book you can CLICK HERE. The idea behind the novel is to teach prayer through the fun of Christian Fiction. I often teach that “prayer is more caught than taught, so if you want to learn to pray, get around people that pray.” Hence, in the book, men and women are modeling prayer.

Be aware that we also send out E-Letters every 10-12 days, and we NEVER beg for money.
