Jesus Christ is one of the most controversial figures of all time. Like it or not, He is the voice of God. In the end every knee shall bow at the very name of Jesus. No one knows the hour of His return, but it’s closer than for any previous generation. We’re in the time of the 11th hour workers.
One such worker has recorded stories from his everyday life and in so doing has come to the realization the age of Grace is coming to its fullness. Soon there will be time no more. These are a few, very few, of the events emerging as the age closes, and God, who is not willing that any should perish, is sounding the final call: “Come Home.” He stands at the door and knocks.
Don’t bother with this book if you’re not interested in your eternal well-being. But if you are, you will find you are in company with the author who, as he bumbled along, has found the One who has given him Hope.
About the Author
Jon Dufendach was born in Michigan in 1938 and grew up there and in Ohio. He first came to Alaska in 1962 with the Army and came to stay in 1967. He and his wife Carol worked a homestead and raised five children; Jon worked the pipeline and other endeavors and now builds drinking water plants for Alaskans and for the poor and needy around the world.
He felt his experiences with the Living Christ in practical ways would speak to the hearts of others who, like himself, hold the glorious Hope of an eternity with the Lord.
No Excuses: The Story of Elite Gymnast Aimee Walker-Pond traces the gymnastics career of a girl born deaf and blind in one eye. Despite challenge after challenge and setback after setback, Aimee rose in the gymnastics world to compete for UCLA and BYU and at the level of International Elite—a feat no athlete with comparable disabilities has accomplished in the history of the sport. This biography describes how Aimee overcame her health struggles, learned American Sign Language, succeeded in gymnastics, enjoyed social activities, acted in movies, traveled to Hawaii and Russia, worked hard in school, competed in college, and found romance. Bruno Grandi, President of the International Gymnastics Federation, said, “Aimee has filled our hearts with the fire of warmth and love and inspired us all to become better.” Valorie Kondos Field, head women’s gymnastics coach at UCLA and winner of six NCAA National Championships, said, “Aimee’s not deaf. She just can’t hear. Why would she need two eyes, when she has one? She has no excuses.”
“Breaking Into The Movies!” It is the humorous (true) story of the life of a kid from Inglewood California, who made it up the food chain to become a world famous Motion Picture Key Grip! Michael G. Uva is the author of the world-renowned, Grip Book! (A.k.a.= The Grip Bible.) (Now in it’s fifth edition/Taylor-Francis) Why it’s even been translated into Korean. Funny thing is, Mike can’t spell or type, nor does he have any command of the English language. None of that has held him back. Actually not much holds him back. Not even a one half inch shorter left leg. (Courtesy of a motorcycle jumping accident while serving eight years in the Marines.) So after his medical discharge, he became a Licensed FAA Aircraft Mechanic at LAX in California. He later became a State Licensed Building Contractor and then on to becoming a pretty famous motion picture Key Grip in the film industry. Then he decided to author a book. It did well. So then he decided to teach at U.C.L.A. for the Extension courses. He has been there, seen that, and broke it all by himself. But you have never heard of any of the things that he has been part of? All these things, spied from behind the movie lights. All closely held and guarded set secrets… until now. He’s worked with the Lone Ranger, Elvira, Val Kilmer, Al Pacino, and a few really famous people as well.
Why would he give away these secrets you ask? I posed that very question to Mike myself. “Mike, why give away all these secrets that you have had tucked away, upstairs for over thirty-five plus years?” His answer was quite simple… “What?” (He’s a grip!)
I rewrote the question, “Why now?” His amazing answer… “It’s time!” (I reiterate; He’s a grip!)
There you have it folks, literally straight from the horses mouth… or the bulls other end!
You will just have to read it and decide for yourselves.
