The responses to Pastor Alamo's literature from around the country and over two hundred countries around the world are proof of a ministry sold out and totally dedicated to the Lord Jesus Christ. Letters, phone calls, and e-mail responses come in to us continually. Here we share a sampling of these correspondences. Our first letter comes from brother John Falasz, a former rock and roll musician, who came from touring the world, evangelizing for Satan, to winning the world to Christ. Praise the Lord!
| I needed the Truth. I had been living
with musicians, and my sould was becoming increasingly vexed with the things we were into.
Finally, I had enough. I packed up and left with nothing but my car, my clothes, and a
guitar. This was my exodus.
In 1991 I started a new job in Nashville where I met a faithful witness from the Alamo Christian Ministries. He invited me to read Bible, and I was more than willing. We read, and he began to show me some of the key elements right in the Bible that I had been missing for all those years.
Vanilli Christians Please
I was raised in a very affluent part of the North Shore
of Chicago. Because my father made a lot of money, skiing trips to Aspen and Vail, or an
afternoon on the yacht were the norm. My parents did the best to provide everything they
could for me, but unfortunately they didn't know the lord
I didn't know that there was a scripture in Biible where Jesus said, "I AM THE
DOOR" God touched me. I knew He was THE WAY that there was only right and wrong,
darkness and light, Heaven or Hell. I felt like l was floating, and that everything was
fresh, as if the lord had lifted the burdens off my shoulders. I thought that all of my
problems were over but a new war was just beginning.
After this I went right back into pursuing my worldlygoals as a guitar player. In the summer of 1989 I toured the U.S. and Canada playing guitar for Milli Vanilli while they had the #1 single on the Billboard chart. They were not the only ones who were phonies, so was I and everyone in the entertainment industry. I later helped put together a project called ME PHI ME and we signed with RCA records. I moved to Nashville to do the recordings. Subsequent tours throughout the U.S. and Europe followed with Arrested Development and Sade.
But every time
I got home, it was more depressing. It was like, "The party's over again fool, now
what?" I began to realize that if I didn't get back to the Lord, I was going to die.
This was the first time I experienced the fear of the Lord.
I met other brothers from the church, and I knew smething about them was different. They
were totally sold out to the Lord 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. They wouldn't te;; me
smooth things, they told me the truth. They led me through that old fashioned sinner's
prayer, and I have never been the same.
When I heard Pastor Alamo's messages on cassette. I knew that he possessed the God-given wisdom to rightly divide the Word of God. I was such welcome relief to my sould after hearing so much heresy over pulpits and on TBN. Now I was being fed answers that made spiritual sense, without yielding more and more questions.
Four years later, I can
say without a doubt that my life in the Alamo Christian Ministries has brought manifold
blessings, strength, and wisdom. I use my talents as a musician to glorify God. Most
importantly, I've learned to be a soul winner.
