Our 16th Anniversary!

Today I celebrate 16 years with my beautiful wife and best friend, words can not express how happy I feel that God gave me a wonderful treasure like the verse says:

Proverbs 18:22 The man who finds a wife finds a treasure and he receives favor from the Lord.

We played this song at our wedding and the vow I made with you my bride is as true now as it was then. I love you with all of my heart

My Testimony

This was my very first post on my blog, and I thought I'd share it again, cause our testimonies are one way we will defeat the enemy, and it's neat to see where people came from. Feel free to share your testimony on the comment section. God bless and keep you


Revelation 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony;

My Testimony

I was born in the 70's and my parents were hippies and like most hippies they did drank and did drugs. Me and my older brother were named while my dad was high. My brother was namedRaisan Cain, he now goes by Ray and I was named Yohn Dur, I now go by Yohn except my family still calls me Yohn Dur. I grew up like most kids in a dysfunctional family. I started smoking, drinking, and doing drugs at age 12. Which led me to juvenile hall a couple of times and was leading me on the road to destruction and hell. I remember looking at my future back then and thinking I would either be in prison, or dead because of an overdose. Then in January of 1993 everything changed I came home one day and my parents were mentioning Jesus not as a swear word but as Lord. I didn't want anything to do with Jesus at the time and told them I was gonna party and do drugs till I died. Thank God that wasn't true because my parents started having Bible study at the house and I started talking to the guy that led it like a punk kid with sarcastic questions like who made God?, and isn't Jesus a myth? He answered me each time with love and it was love that drew me before I knew it I was listening to the Bible stories he would share with us like David and Goliath. And in June of 1993 all alone in my bedroom I told Jesus I would be His if He would take the desire to get high on drugs out of me, you see I chased the high everyday had to have the high, the high, the high, would do anything for the high. But right then and there He took that desire away and replaced it with a desire for Him. You see Jesus has done soooo much for me not only saving me 20 years ago, but blessing me with a beautiful wife, and two beautiful children. My life is forever changed because of him!
