About Brother Rand

Hello, Brother Rand here!Feb 2014 039

I was born in a small town in Oklahoma and spent the majority of my adult life in Oregon. I have had several jobs throughout my life in many industries including manufacturing, restaurant, printing and even the oil industry. I am an ordained minister and currently invest in real estate and am beginning an adventure into the world of online marketing.

I returned to my childhood home in Oklahoma with my wife of nine years, Alice. We had been together for eight years prior to our marriage. We have not been blessed with children together.

Alice had three children from a prior marriage. Her son passed away before his time due to complications from a prescription medication. Her daughters both live in Oregon, such a beautiful place. She has many grandchildren; I lose track of how many. And sadly, my wife suffers from Alzheimer’s. She was diagnosed in 2004. It is my opinion that the worst thing a person can lose is their ability to reason and remember. Alice is in the latter stages of her disability and I fear I will be deprived of her wonderful presence all too soon.

I have enjoyed having my wife by my side immensely! I shall love her more and more each and every day. The Lord will be getting quite a beautiful soul when he welcomes her into his kingdom. I have prayed and pleaded with the Lord to heal her, but I suppose he has bigger and better plans for her. But I fear the real truth is that I just don’t have enough Faith! I doubt myself and I fear that doubt translates itself into inaction of divine intervention on my part. Because the Lord said,

Mathew 17:20 And He said to them, “Because of the littleness of your faith; for truly I say to you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you.

I’m not a traditional clergyman so I’m not hindered in my pursuit of spreading God’s word by any particular dogma. I will do my best to speak the word of God just as it is in the Holy Bible. If I ever get off point or stray off my path, I am proud to be a Christian but not in a sinfully prideful way.I welcome any and all criticism, rebuke and correction!

I will be commenting on verses of the Bible as I move along through it from beginning to end. Please feel free to follow along with me and we can explore the Bible together.

Thank you and have a blessed day!
Brother Rand
