Ex-Witch: I Have Seen Lucifer In the Christian Church

Beth Eckert

An ex-witch who came out of occult, satanic ritual abuse and more says she had an encounter with Lucifer in the Christian church.

“This time, I just want to dig into things I’ve personally witnessed and experienced over the last couple of years as I’ve been navigating of learning this corruption in the Christian church,” Beth Eckert says in a new video.

“[I’ve been] learning about this already-established, antichrist, New-Age indoctrination and movement that’s already infiltrated the Christian church,” she says.

Watch the video to see more.

(Editor’s Note) In my book Guns to the Gospel, I point out how I had to fight many battles that involved people that were used by Satan to destroy the church. One person can tear down a church in one day what took many years to build. You will be able to purchase on Amazon my book by next week.

AUNT DEE’S HAPPY TAILS by Carol Duke

Saving Bessie


Mrs. Dee had a terrible night. She was still feeling very sleepy. The storm last night kept her awake. She slowly got out of bed. To her surprise Misty, her dog, was still asleep, which was very unusual. She was the one that woke her up every morning.

“Come Misty. We need to check on the chickens after that storm.”

Hoping that the chicken pen had not blown down and the chickens were safe, she dressed quickly. She put on her boots, preparing herself for a disaster. To her surprise everything looked intact, no damage. 

She was so relieved. She collected all the eggs and placed them into her egg basket. The storm had not affected the hens’ laying. Mrs. Dee was quite happy with collecting her six eggs.

“Come on Misty. We need to wake up Mr. Dee and get the coffee on. I need to feed you too.”

As Mrs. Dee headed back to the house she heard a dog barking. Misty seemed restless, and upset. I wonder who’s dog that is? I don’t know of anyone who has a dog back that way.

“Come on Misty. We need to go in.” But Misty was becoming very fussy, and headed for the creek that ran through their property.

“What’s the matter Misty?”

Misty was a very obedient dog , so Mrs. Dee couldn’t understand why she wouldn’t follow her into the house. The other dog was still barking in the distance, and Misty was getting more upset. She refused to come into the house, even to eat.

Leaving Misty outside, Mrs. Dee went into the house to put the coffee on, thinking she will want to come in after awhile. After about fifteen minutes, she looked outside to check on her and to see if she wanted to come in. But Misty was still acting strangely. She kept running back and forth towards the creek.

 

“My goodness that dog that I heard early this morning is still barking. I wonder if that is what is upsetting Misty. Maybe something is wrong,” Mrs. Dee thought.

It wasn’t too far to the creek. Even though they were on four acres of land, it was mostly all woods. Mrs. Dee decided to take a look and see if she could see the dog that was now making such a fuss.

 

Misty led the way. The closer to the creek they got, the faster Misty ran, leading the way. As Mrs. Dee got to the creek, she looked to where Misty had stopped. Across the creek, she saw the cutest little dog caught in the briars. It was soaked from the storm. “Poor little thing,” she thought.

As pitiful as the poor little dog looked, it was so happy to see her. Looking as if to say, “Please help me.” Mrs. Dee was an animal lover. Her heart was touched to see the poor little dog so trapped. “I have to rescue that dog. But how?”

The water in the creek had risen from the storm, and it was flowing like the rapids, with a lot of debris. Mrs. Dee couldn’t swim. “I have got to get across that creek,” thought Mrs. Dee, “but that current could knock me down. I’ve got to find a way or that poor little puppy is going to be stuck there for hours.” 

Looking over to the other side while the little dog was getting frantic, Misty was wagging her tail as if to say, “You can do it”.

Mrs. Dee weighed up the situation and made a plan of how she could rescue the dog. If only I could find a strong stick to steady me in the water, I would feel more secure. Looking around, she could find nothing long enough. Plus she didn’t know how deep the water was.

 

Looking up, she saw a tree that was hanging over the water with some good strong limbs. She said to herself, “If I could pull one of the limbs to where I could hold on to one of them, I could get to the other side safely.”

Reaching with a stick and pulling onto one of the limbs, she succeeded in getting one close enough to grab onto. She took her first step into the creek, taking it very slowly. The water was making it very difficult. The current was very strong, but the limb she was holding onto was a great support. 

The closer she got to the little dog the more excited it got, entangling itself more. Mrs. Dee finally made it to the entangled dog, who was wagging its tail like crazy. Steadying herself, she reached for the dog and untangled her. The sweet little dog jumped in her arms and kissed and kissed her rescuer.

Now for the return trip to the other side. Now Mrs. Dee has a dog in her arms and has to hang on to the limb, as well, to make it safely back. Getting her footing, she said a little prayer, and started back to the other side. At last she made it. She went to put the dog down, but the dog clung on, not wanting to let go. So she carried her to the house.


“You must be hungry and thirsty.” She left the dog outside, went in, got some food and fresh water, and brought it out for the dog.

After the dog had had its fill, Mrs. Dee thought the dog would leave and find its way home, if it lived not to far away. She stayed outside a while to see if the dog would stay around, or leave on its own accord. The dog stayed.

“OK, little girl,” she said to the puppy, “you look a mess.” She checked her over. She was covered in ticks and stickers. “My goodness,” she thought, “you must be feeling miserable.Bathfor you, sweet one. Then we are going to search for your owners.”

The bath was poured for the dog and a good smelling dog shampoo was applied. “We will have you smelling good in no time,” said Mrs. Dee. “Then we will get rid of those ticks and stickers. After, her bath, she wrapped her in a warm towel, dried her, and cleaned and brushed her. She looked like a different dog.

Mrs. Dee, had explained everything all that had happened in the last two hours to her husband. She explained, “This dog has been taken care of. Its nails are groomed. The dog is not starving. It’s a very loving dog, very social. Somebody is missing this dog. There may be children crying for their dog to return home. We must put up posters, then drive around some neighborhoods close by to see if we can locate the owners. We can leave the dog with Misty for company until we get back.”

Mr. and Mrs. Dee set about making posters and putting them up around the neighborhood, even knocking on a few doors to see if anyone had lost their dog, with no luck.

Nobody knew anything about the dog or anyone that had lost a dog. “I guess we can put an add in the paper and see if someone is looking for their dog,” said Mr. Dee.

Mr. Dee said, “Why don’t we drive around to the back of all the woods? I know. It’s a long way around, but we have tried everything close by. Mrs. Dee agreed. Even though they had no idea what was on the other side, they traveled about four miles around to the back of the woods on the highway.

“I don’t see any houses around this way,” said Mrs. Dee.”Lets go about two more miles, then we will turn back if we don’t see any homes.” Mr. and Mrs. Dee traveled on. They had gone another mile and passed an open cleared field. It looked like a field and way back, there were three houses with a trail going to each house. As they were looking, Mr. Dee said, “Those woods back up to our property. Even though it seems a long way out, there’s a good chance we may be in luck on finding the owners of the little dog.”

As they were talking, a car turned onto the property. “Let’s follow them,” said Mrs. Dee. “They may know something about the dog”. They followed them for quite a distance until they drove up in front of a house. Two ladies got out of the car, followed by three small children. The man in the car leaned out of the window. Mr. Dee leaned out of his and said, “Have you…” and before he could finish, the man said, “lost a dog?”

Mr. and Mrs. Dee got out of their car, as did the man. Everybody was so excited when they heard the news that their dog had been found.

The children’s eyes lit up as Mrs. Dee explained how she found the dog. 

They said their dog had been missing for over twelve hours, and they had gone to bed crying. They were from Alabama and were visiting their grandmother along with their parents. Their father had let the dog out before they all went to bed, and the dog saw a deer in the woods. 

She had never seen a deer before, so she chased after it, and never came back. She was out all night in the storm. Their father had taken a flashlight and went out looking for her, but had no luck. The children went to bed very upset, praying that their dog would return to them.

Everyone got back into their cars. The dog’s family followed Mr. and Mrs. Dee to their house. What a wonderful reunion! The children were so happy. Mrs. Dee told them, “Jesus heard your prayers and answered them. He brought Bessie safely home.” This was a very happy ending to an exciting day.

THE ALMOST UNFORGIVABLE SIN?

 By George Duke

Matthew 12:32 And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come.

I-Story of Jacob and Esau

Gen 25:31 And Jacob said, Sell me this day thy birthright. 32 And Esau said, Behold, I am at the point to die: and what profit shall this birthright do to me? 33 And Jacob said, Swear to me this day; and he sware unto him: and he sold his birthright unto Jacob. 34 Then Jacob gave Esau bread and pottage of lentiles; and he did eat and drink, and rose up, and went his way: thus Esau despised his birthright.

A-Birthright given to the son was greatest gift Father could pass to the Son

B-Death of the Testator gave the son this right

C-Right of the Son to love and cherish this right until he passed it on

II-All Mankind receive a birthright

A-We all received birthright from Adam

B-That birthright is Death Why?  We are born in sin

Romans 5:14 “Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam’s transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come.”

C-No matter how much medical scientist try to prolong life man still has to die

D-Man can not do what only God can do for you

III-God is Life

A-Jesus Christ being God in the flesh came to give life by shedding his blood and life for us

John 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

B-Jesus paid the price for us to be able to be born again

John 3:4 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born? 5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. 6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

8 The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.

C-Man must go through God’s transformation and be born again to shed his birthright of sin

D-How can I be born again? Simple follow the recipe given by Peter in Acts2:37,38 37 Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do? 38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. 39 For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.

 

HAS THE LORD ACCEPTED YOU?

Hebrews 11:4-By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh.  5 By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God. 6 But without faith [it is] impossible to please [him]: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and [that] he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. 7 By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.

I-Have you accepted the Lord as your personal Saviour?

A-This is the normal altar call in most non Apostolic Pentecostal Churches

B-Thousands come to Altars in many of their Meetings

C-Amazement shook me in Billy Graham Crusades how many came out of the stands

Acts 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

ARE YOU PREPARED?
By George Duke
2 Peter 3:10But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. 11Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, 12Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? 13Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness. 14Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.

C-POSITIVE ASSURANCE FOR THE DELIGENT
Act 2: 37Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do? 38Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. 39 For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.

STANDARDS A BLESSING OR A CURSEImage result for i am glad i am not like that sinner
By George Duke
“Your Honor, I am a Christian, I’m not like that lying, cheating girl over there!” I remember watching People in Court, and hearing the Plaintiff say those very words

Issumagijoujunnainermik!
By George Duke
Mark 11:26 But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.
I-FORGIVENESS
A-Hardest command of God to obey
B-We say we forgive but do we?
C-If you can not forget can you say you have forgiven?
D-This is where God can but we can’t
II-EASY TO SAY
A-Forgiveness In the English language it was easy to pronounce
B-But in the Eskimo language there was no single word forgiveness
C-When missionaries first shared the gospel with the Eskimos, they couldn’t find any word in the Eskimo language for forgiveness. So, they took a number of Eskimo words and joined them to form a new word — Issu-magi-jou-jun-nai-ner-mik — and it became the Eskimo word for forgiveness.
D-The individual words are “Not-being-able-to-think-about-it-anymore.”
III-HAZARDS OF UNFORGIVENESS
A-Bitterness, hatred, strife, shame, sorrow, murder
B-Divorce many times caused by unforgiveness
C-Problem caused by not being able to forget
IV-GOD OUR SOURCE OF FORGIVENESS
A-God can help us to overcome
B –God forgives and forgets
C-By forgetting God sets a true example of Forgiving
D-God was willing to help you forgive
E-Even though they placed him on the cross his final words were Father forgive them
V-TODAY GOD IS HERE TO FORGIVE
A-All we have to do is believe and repent
B-Then in baptism in the name of Jesus he will wash away all our sins
C-To reveal his forgiveness to you he will fill you with his Spirit
D- Those that are truly born again become the sons of God
John 1:12 KJV: But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God,
So whenever a hurtful memory comes up, remember the word Issu-magi-jou-jun-nai-ner-mik, and say, “I can’t think about it anymore, it’s in God’s hands.”

THE SAGA OF THE BIRTHRIGHT
By George Duke

Genesis 25:19-34
I-Story of the birth of Jacob and Esau
A-Esau was the firstborn
B-Misunderstood the value of his Birthright
C-Jacob misunderstood the cost to keep that Birthright
II-Man Holds a Birthright
A-His first birthright is Sin & Death
Psalm 51:3 For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me. 4 Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest. 5 Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.
B-A birthright passed down from Adam and Eve to all Generations
C-Today all men are born with the birthright of sin & death
1-First thing a child learns on their own is to sin (ie. lie)
III-Jesus Came to give us a new Birthright of Life
John 10: The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
A-Jesus not only told what he came to do but also How
John 3-1 There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews: 2 The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him. 3-Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see thekingdomofGod. 4 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born? 5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into thekingdomofGod. 6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.
B-Jesus then paid the price to purchase that right for all that will accept
1-On the 3rd day he overcame death and Hell

Acts 1 & 2
IV-Man must be born again to overcome his 1st Birthright
Acts 2:38
A-The New birth makes us sons of God

C-Today that promise is for you

 

YOU CAN’T HAVE SIN AND EDEN TOO
By George Duke

A-Jesus told Nicodemus a man had to be born again John 3:5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
B-A birth is a miraculous event
C-So is the new birth that Jesus spoke of
D-Man’s desire is to take away the miraculous in this new birt
E-Jesus commands his disciples to wait for it to occur Luke 24:49 And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city ofJerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.
IV-There is only one way to be born again
A-Follow the example given in Acts chapter 2
B-It will start with prayer and a wait
C-It will end with a miracle Acts 10:44 While Peter yet spake these words, the Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the word. 45 And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost. 46 For they heard them speak with tongues, and magnify God.
D-Had the keys and delivered them to us Acts 2:37 Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do? 38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. 39 For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.
V-It is for you today

THE MINIISTRY OF BEING LET DOWN
Text: Acts 9:25- Samuel 19:12- Mark 2:4

INTRO: My first experience of being let down by Spiritual things

I-PAUL WAS LET DOWN

The disciples took Paul and by night let him down by the wall in a basket (Acts 9:24)

1-First he was let down by the disciples, not the sorry church members ofDamascusthat did it

2-Again Paul was let down in the night, not the day time when you are able to see things

II-DAVID WAS LET DOWN

o Michal let David down through a window: and he went, and fled, and escaped. I Samuel 19:12

1-First David was let down by dear friends not enemies-God sometimes uses those close to us to let us down

2-David’s being let down also involved roughness-Many times God allows us to end up bruised

3-After David was let down he was replaced- Michal placed an Idol in bed where David had slept and covered it

so it appeared to be him thus deceiving Saul. Have you ever been replaced?

III-THE PALSIED MAN WAS LET DOWN

1-Like Job we may be let down by people who seem to be helping us

2-By being let down his pride was hurt. Many times our pride is hurt in the church when we trust people rather

than God

3-The men letting him down all worked in harmony in letting him down

IV-WE MUST EXPECT TO BE LET DOWN

1- By our friends

2-By our Brothers and Sisters in the church

3- By our Pastor

V-GOD WILL NEVER LET YOU DOWN

1-Everything he allows us to go through is for a purpose

Let me start off by saying there are no errors regarding the written word of God. The errors that are therein are the errors of men.

B-Allowed the evil of Money to capture him
1-John 12:3Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the odour of the ointment. 4Then saith one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, which should betray him, 5Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence, and given to the poor? 6This he said, not that he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief, and had the bag, and bare what was put therein.

Saving Bessie


Mrs. Dee had a terrible night. She was still feeling very sleepy. The storm last night kept her awake. She slowly got out of bed. To her surprise Misty, her dog, was still asleep, which was very unusual. She was the one that woke her up every morning.

“Come Misty. We need to check on the chickens after that storm.”

Hoping that the chicken pen had not blown down and the chickens were safe, she dressed quickly. She put on her boots, preparing herself for a disaster. To her surprise everything looked intact, no damage.

She was so relieved. She collected all the eggs and placed them into her egg basket. The storm had not affected the hens’ laying. Mrs. Dee was quite happy with collecting her six eggs.

“Come on Misty. We need to wake up Mr. Dee and get the coffee on. I need to feed you too.”

As Mrs. Dee headed back to the house she heard a dog barking. Misty seemed restless, and upset. I wonder who’s dog that is? I don’t know of anyone who has a dog back that way.

“Come on Misty. We need to go in.” But Misty was becoming very fussy, and headed for the creek that ran through their property.

“What’s the matter Misty?”

Misty was a very obedient dog , so Mrs. Dee couldn’t understand why she wouldn’t follow her into the house. The other dog was still barking in the distance, and Misty was getting more upset. She refused to come into the house, even to eat.

Leaving Misty outside, Mrs. Dee went into the house to put the coffee on, thinking she will want to come in after awhile. After about fifteen minutes, she looked outside to check on her and to see if she wanted to come in. But Misty was still acting strangely. She kept running back and forth towards the creek.

 

“My goodness that dog that I heard early this morning is still barking. I wonder if that is what is upsetting Misty. Maybe something is wrong,” Mrs. Dee thought.

It wasn’t too far to the creek. Even though they were on four acres of land, it was mostly all woods. Mrs. Dee decided to take a look and see if she could see the dog that was now making such a fuss.

 

Misty led the way. The closer to the creek they got, the faster Misty ran, leading the way. As Mrs. Dee got to the creek, she looked to where Misty had stopped. Across the creek, she saw the cutest little dog caught in the briars. It was soaked from the storm. “Poor little thing,” she thought.

As pitiful as the poor little dog looked, it was so happy to see her. Looking as if to say, “Please help me.” Mrs. Dee was an animal lover. Her heart was touched to see the poor little dog so trapped. “I have to rescue that dog. But how?”

The water in the creek had risen from the storm, and it was flowing like the rapids, with a lot of debris. Mrs. Dee couldn’t swim. “I have got to get across that creek,” thought Mrs. Dee, “but that current could knock me down. I’ve got to find a way or that poor little puppy is going to be stuck there for hours.”

Looking over to the other side while the little dog was getting frantic, Misty was wagging her tail as if to say, “You can do it”.

Mrs. Dee weighed up the situation and made a plan of how she could rescue the dog. If only I could find a strong stick to steady me in the water, I would feel more secure. Looking around, she could find nothing long enough. Plus she didn’t know how deep the water was.

 

Looking up, she saw a tree that was hanging over the water with some good strong limbs. She said to herself, “If I could pull one of the limbs to where I could hold on to one of them, I could get to the other side safely.”

Reaching with a stick and pulling onto one of the limbs, she succeeded in getting one close enough to grab onto. She took her first step into the creek, taking it very slowly. The water was making it very difficult. The current was very strong, but the limb she was holding onto was a great support.

The closer she got to the little dog the more excited it got, entangling itself more. Mrs. Dee finally made it to the entangled dog, who was wagging its tail like crazy. Steadying herself, she reached for the dog and untangled her. The sweet little dog jumped in her arms and kissed and kissed her rescuer.

Now for the return trip to the other side. Now Mrs. Dee has a dog in her arms and has to hang on to the limb, as well, to make it safely back. Getting her footing, she said a little prayer, and started back to the other side. At last she made it. She went to put the dog down, but the dog clung on, not wanting to let go. So she carried her to the house.


“You must be hungry and thirsty.” She left the dog outside, went in, got some food and fresh water, and brought it out for the dog.

After the dog had had its fill, Mrs. Dee thought the dog would leave and find its way home, if it lived not to far away. She stayed outside a while to see if the dog would stay around, or leave on its own accord. The dog stayed.

“OK, little girl,” she said to the puppy, “you look a mess.” She checked her over. She was covered in ticks and stickers. “My goodness,” she thought, “you must be feeling miserable.Bathfor you, sweet one. Then we are going to search for your owners.”

The bath was poured for the dog and a good smelling dog shampoo was applied. “We will have you smelling good in no time,” said Mrs. Dee. “Then we will get rid of those ticks and stickers. After, her bath, she wrapped her in a warm towel, dried her, and cleaned and brushed her. She looked like a different dog.

Mrs. Dee, had explained everything all that had happened in the last two hours to her husband. She explained, “This dog has been taken care of. Its nails are groomed. The dog is not starving. It’s a very loving dog, very social. Somebody is missing this dog. There may be children crying for their dog to return home. We must put up posters, then drive around some neighborhoods close by to see if we can locate the owners. We can leave the dog with Misty for company until we get back.”

Mr. and Mrs. Dee set about making posters and putting them up around the neighborhood, even knocking on a few doors to see if anyone had lost their dog, with no luck. Nobody knew anything about the dog or anyone that had lost a dog. “I guess we can put an add in the paper and see if someone is looking for their dog,” said Mr. Dee.

Mr. Dee said, “Why don’t we drive around to the back of all the woods? I know. It’s a long way around, but we have tried everything close by. Mrs. Dee agreed. Even though they had no idea what was on the other side, they traveled about four miles around to the back of the woods on the highway.

“I don’t see any houses around this way,” said Mrs. Dee.”Lets go about two more miles, then we will turn back if we don’t see any homes.” Mr. and Mrs. Dee traveled on. They had gone another mile and passed an open cleared field. It looked like a field and way back, there were three houses with a trail going to each house. As they were looking, Mr. Dee said, “Those woods back up to our property. Even though it seems a long way out, there’s a good chance we may be in luck on finding the owners of the little dog.”

As they were talking, a car turned onto the property. “Let’s follow them,” said Mrs. Dee. “They may know something about the dog”. They followed them for quite a distance until they drove up in front of a house. Two ladies got out of the car, followed by three small children. The man in the car leaned out of the window. Mr. Dee leaned out of his and said, “Have you…” and before he could finish, the man said, “lost a dog?”

Mr. and Mrs. Dee got out of their car, as did the man. Everybody was so excited when they heard the news that their dog had been found.

The children’s eyes lit up as Mrs. Dee explained how she found the dog. They said their dog had been missing for over twelve hours, and they had gone to bed crying. They were from Alabama and were visiting their grandmother along with their parents. Their father had let the dog out before they all went to bed, and the dog saw a deer in the woods.

She had never seen a deer before, so she chased after it, and never came back. She was out all night in the storm. Their father had taken a flashlight and went out looking for her, but had no luck. The children went to bed very upset, praying that their dog would return to them.

Everyone got back into their cars. The dog’s family followed Mr. and Mrs. Dee to their house. What a wonderful reunion! The children were so happy. Mrs. Dee told them, “Jesus heard your prayers and answered them. He brought Bessie safely home.” This was a very happy ending to an exciting day.
