I have spent 12 years crab fishing on the Bering sea of Alaska (the most dangerous job in the world), repossessed cars in L.A. for two years, and have been a Private Investigator for over 20,(specializing in surveillance, fatality airplane crashes, and homicides). I have been shipwrecked for days at sea with no water, attacked by elephants in Africa, where I lived with different tribes during the years that I was there.
null I’ve survived multiple motorcycle and auto accidents. I am a B licensed skydiver. I’m also a scuba instructor and have dived with great white sharks. I often go on expeditions to spear 400+ pound fish over deep oceanic pinnacles. I have rapelled down into the deepest cave in the United States, where I spent days exploring underground…

I recently went to Venezuela to B.A.S.E. jump off of the tallest waterfall in the world; and then made my own raft and spent two months floating down the Amazon river to Manaus Brazil. I have been able to travel all over the world, including 18 countries in Europe, and have even lived in the southernmost city in the world, on the edge of Antarctica. I’ve also lived in the Sahara desert near the real place called Timbuktu.

Believe me I am just getting started and could go on and on. I am really concerned that you are going to start thinking this is about me, when it’s not in the least. In fact it is only because of God’s grace that I survived any of those adventures, or saw any of those places. Yes, I too have been rescued from my own depravity and sin and the very gates of Hell by the blood of the Lamb, my Savior and Lord and King… The reason I elaborated so much on all my adventures is to say this : None of those experiences or adventures can compare to the greatest adventure of all which is the chance to serve God through evangelizing the lost. The difference is that this adventure is going to last for Eternity!!!

  1. Wow, now that is what I call a testimony of what Christians need to hear. What more motivation? What more inspiration? What more did Christ have to suffer to get us to GO. Make your election sure. Test to see if you are of the faith. I want to meet and follow the Braddock’s of Hope Chapel at our next evangelism outreach.

  2. I think I know who you are by your life description listed above. Did you forget Chile perhaps? Provo, Utah too?

  3. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is a church of member missionaries of the truth. You don’t have to be an “evangelist”. Everyone has the power to share the gospel. Please investigate this truth for yourselves. The Holy Spirit testifies of truth to those who pray to God and ask to know. You don’t even have to be a “super hero” or “Indiana Jones” to receive inspiration or share the gospel. Each one of us is in the mission field every day we live and breathe and who’s job is it to share the truth? Only someone set aside to pass out pamplets? No. You and I have a duty to ourselves and God to proclaim the gospel every day. We all can share experiences that change other’s perspectives on what life is all about. It is up to them to ask God to know the truth and our job to challenge them to do just that, to know for themselves, not because I said so.
