I am a musician, preacher and founder of Firepower Ministries Int. and GenNet.
I was born and raised in New Zealand, lived in Australia for 25 years, and have been ministering in the US since 1999. My passion is making Jesus more famous everywhere!
In early 2009, I was diagnosed with Esophageal Cancer and given 6 months to two years to live!
After two rounds of chemo, radiation and major surgery where they took out most of my esophagus, I was flat on my back for most of the year. However, I resumed my traveling ministry late in 2009 and continued strongly throughout 2010.
Then, in the beginning of 2011, it was discovered that the cancer had returned in two lymph nodes on the left side of my neck, and I was given 6 -12 months to live.
All that was offered was more chemo and radiation. Since that nearly killed me the first time, I decided to pursue a more natural approach.
Consequently, in June, 2011 I started a series of integrated treatments at a Christian hospital in Mexico, where certain protocols were available that were not allowed in the US.
I have been to this hospital four times over the last year and I'm sure the treatments have played a major role in keeping me relatively 'healthy.'
As these treatments are outside of the US, insurance has not covered the thousands of dollars in expenses.
I plan on returning to the hospital at some point in the near future for more treatments to help me have greater longevity.
Kindly consider helping me with the costs of my next visit and other natural treatments I'm looking into here in the US!
Also, just recently I MC'd the America for Jesus Pre-Rally in NJ and it was a great success. However, the next morning I woke up with no voice...! Since then I have been struggling to get it back.
It is most likely Laryngitis and I understand that it could take up to two weeks to get better.
There is also a possibility that it might be related to the cancer! My surgeon said, "One of the nerves that goes to the vocal cords is right near one of your involved lymph nodes. Although laryngitis is the most likely cause. If it does not resolve over the next 10 days, further investigation is warranted."
I had to postpone my preaching this past Sunday, and to make matters worse, my back went out and right now I can hardly stand!
I believe this a spiritual counter attack because of the success of the pre-rally. The enemy hates any one and any activity dedicated to preserving America's future. My heavy commitment to "America for Jesus" has made me a target!
You know me well enough by now that I don't preach to live, but live to preach! Never the less, we are solely supported by my preaching ministry and don't receive a salary from a church.
So please pray ardently for my voice, my back and consider assisting with finances.
Thank you and God bless you for your support!
