ABUSE FREE - Christians Wake Up!
We believe in the power of God. I also have many infirmities and the enemy wants to get rid of me. But, God has a plan in my life and He will bring it to an expected end.
I recently had a miracle. Six weeks ago I was diagnosed with a tumor in my left breast by a mammogram and ultrasound. I was referred to a surgeon, who examined me and said it was relatively small and on the surface, thought it was benign, but had something suspicious in the center. He scheduled surgery for May 22 and was going to do a local to remove the whole lump and then do a biopsy on it. I had endometrial cancer surgery one year ago on July 30 and was declared cancer free again this year due to Paps and exams. Because of my history of cancer the surgeon decided it would be best to remove the lump ASAP.
So on Wed 22nd, I was prepped for surgery after going without food and water since midnight, had the gown on and wrist bands, signed all the paper work, etc. In order for the surgeon to find the tumor properly, an ultrasound is given just before surgery and a wire is inserted in the exact place where the tumor is located. When this was done Wed before my scheduled surgery, THEY COULD NOT FIND THE TUMOR!!
Needless to say they were puzzled and even had the measurements and kept looking. So after speaking to the radiologist and doctor, they did a few Mammogram slides and STILL COULD NOT FIND THE TUMOR!!!
The nurses were rejoicing because they CANCELLED THE SURGERY!! The radiologist came out and I asked him if he was a believer and he said reluctantly, "yes." Then I asked him if he believed in the power of God and he again reluctantly said, "yes." Then I declared that God had removed the tumor as we had prayed and had many people praying for me. I am counting on God to keep me tumor free. I am scheduled for another ultrasound and visit to the surgeon. I am wondering what he will say. No matter what doubt anyone tries to put in me, I will keep saying that God removed the tumor. I have had previous 6 surgeries for removing benign tumors and one of them was also in my left breast.
ALL PRAISE AND GLORY TO MY LORD!!

We need your prayers. I (Donna) have been diagnosed with uterine cancer. I am undergoing a lot of pre-surgery tests and have an appointment with the surgeon on June 19 in Louisville, Ky. I may have to go through a lot, but I know that your prayers are with me.
God gave me a Scripture to hang onto. Dan. 3:17 Here it is in context.
I serve that same God and He is able to deliver me as well. Perhaps it may come through Doctors, Surgery, Medicines, or even Death, but He will deliver me and I put my trust in Him.
Thanks for your prayers in advance.
On July 31, 2012 I successfully underwent Cancer surgery. They think they got all the cancer, but I will find out on Aug. 28th if I have to have Chemo. Thanks for your continued prayers.
New Book Finally Done!
Lord, Is That You?
A Garden of Memoirs and Blessings
INTRODUCTION AND ACKNOWLEDGEMENTSI was in a prayer meeting at my sister's house about nine years ago when God spoke to me and said, "Write." I thought, "What on earth do you want me to write about?" I started to write some of the stories (Wild flowers) you will read within this book about our ministry, but I just didnít seem to get very far. Therefore I decided it was not what God wanted me to write and I put it aside. However, I kept Godís command tucked away all this time until He spoke to me about it again. This time I felt real direction. For over 30 years I have kept journals. They have usually contained a combination of Bible study notes and prophecies, other words of knowledge, poems, songs, and lessons from the Lord. The proper word for all of these writings would be "memoirs." I really never thought of such a fancy word for my journals. I consider all of what God has given me blessings. One of the main reasons for my journals was to provide a check for me after a prophetic utterance. If I prophesied something, I wanted to check it out with the Scripture and keep a record when, or if, they came to fruition.
Iím 63 now and I started this book July 2006 and it is November 2011 now. The demands of our ministry, circumstances in my life, and some health issues have kept me from getting it completed as fast as I had hoped. Through the years, God has also spoken to me and helped me to know some changes I needed to make, or other things I needed to add. As the pages unfolded before my eyes, I have been truly humbled. I still remain in awe when I realize the magnitude of how many different ways, and how wonderfully God has revealed himself to me. My first thanks go to my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Writing this book has truly been a blessing and a learning experience. Words cannot express how much my sister, Everetta, has supported my quest to accomplish what God told me to do. I really appreciate how she challenged me to write something uplifting instead of all the serious stuff I have coauthored for our ministry. She said, "You have a wonderful sense of humor. There are people of all ages who would be blessed and enjoy some of the stories, and "God things" you have told me over the years." I also want to thank husband, children, and my friends for their prayer support, the faith they have in me, constructive criticism, and encouragement. Many thanks as well for our fellowship group, ministry contacts, customers, and everyone who prayed for me during this endeavor.
I often feel intimidated by those voices I think will say things such as, "WHO" does she think she is?", "What makes her think she can hear God correctly?", " She is not a well-known author.", and "Nobody will want to read anything written by her.". These things without a doubt will be spoken; however, I feel that others will be blessed by my endeavors. I have been very careful during the writing of this book not to read books by other authors. I wanted to be sure this work was not tainted by any other personís thoughts or words. I am willing to take the responsibility for my own thoughts and what I feel God has inspired me to write. So, here it is. I prayed and asked God what he wanted me to write and He has guided me every step of the way. I know His thoughts will be heard along with mine in every part you read in this book. I pray that your spirits will be lifted and your life will be challenged by some of the concepts I have brought forth. Thank you, reader, for taking the time to listen to God's heart and mine through the written word.
Your servant in Jesus,
The Author, Donna Mae Carrico
WELCOME TO MY GARDEN
A garden is usually a collection of many things whether it is flowers, vegetables, leftover farm equipment, maybe even some discarded plumbing parts, animals, our joys, our sorrows, and our own hard work. There are some good, some bad, some neutral and many surprises if you look hard enough. People do many things in gardens. Some think that to work in the soil is very therapeutic. Others just enjoy a leisurely stroll for exercise and enjoy what is there. Children and animals often play in a garden. Many just sit and contemplate on life or pray. You donít have to be a Christian to walk in my garden. Everyone is welcome. However, my writing will reflect that I am a follower of Jesus Christ. As you walk with me in my garden, I hope to bless you with what the Lord has given me. I have chosen to open the gate and let you in. You donít have to worry about what you look like or who will see you. I donít care if you wear flip-flops, tennis shoes, hip boots, or even take your shoes off and go barefoot. Just relax and make yourself comfortable. Some parts of my garden are serious, funny, challenging, still growing, and perhaps there may be some parts you will not comprehend as I do. You may not appreciate my garden as much as I do, but still, you are welcome.
Occasionally, you may find some "" in gardens, the woods, or along the side of a road. You have no idea where they come from, but they break up the monotony and boredom. I have put some of my life stories (wild flowers) at the end of the parts to help give the reader a little chuckle or food for thought. I felt that the content was often a little heavy and maybe too serious for steady reading, therefore, I pray you enjoy these stories that are truly a part of my lifeís garden.
I have tried to put my garden in order in the Table of Contents, but alas, some areas seem to spill over into other areas and many single parts are relevant to the whole of the book. It is not necessary to read this book in any certain order as it is truly a collection of various things - like most gardens. I suppose parts of my writings are thoughts that others have had, but have been afraid to write. I do not claim to have all the answers to life, or a Bible scholar. Much of the things I will be sharing are my personal thoughts. I also do not claim to have a direct pipeline to God, although I feel through the years, He has shown me many things in a multitude of ways. Several of those things have been verified in ways that amaze me. I often question why He would choose to speak to me or show me these discoveries. The only answer comes to my mind is that perhaps I just happened to be listening at the right time and place. Perhaps it is just another way for Him to show His love for me.
The expressions on the faces in the pictures on the back cover were painted by Faith Gutenberg. She captured how I felt for many years. I questioned (#1) if what I heard was really God. If it was God, I was a little scared (#2) of what He would think of me. I am showing you a close up of the facial expressions here.
I finally ceased to be a doubter several years before I came to know Jesus as my personal Savior. Some people do not think God still speaks to mankind. They often ask the question, "LORD, is that you?" As I began to search for and collect the memoirs I wanted to put into this book, I once again realized how blessed I truly am. How wonderful that my Lord and Savior, the creator of the universe has chosen to speak and reveal all of these things to me! There are many Christians who say they have never heard Godís voice. There are non-Christians who proclaim they hear God speak all the time. Often people do not understand or hear God because they do not take time to listen. Frequently they have a preconceived idea of what God is supposed to sound or look like. Many others question if what they have seen or heard is really the Lord speaking, through the various methods God could choose to manifest His presence. He reveals things to them in the Holy Bible, dreams, visions, words of knowledge, and often even through other people or the things He has created. There are some people that fear that others will think they are crazy if they share what they feel that God has revealed to them. I often have those same doubts and fears. However, I have chosen to share myself and what I feel God has given to me with, You, my welcome guest and sojourner.
It has taken a lot of courage and a lot of faith to expose my garden of memoirs and blessings for the enjoyment, inspection, and reflection of others. I pray that you will overlook the weeds, shoo off the bugs, smell the flowers, see the beauty, and feel the emotions in what my Lord has given me. My desire is that you will tarry on the garden seat that I have provided and take time to use the five senses that the Lord has given you to see, hear, smell, touch, and feel the glory of God that He has revealed to me in so many different ways. Lord says through the psalmist, David:
My greatest blessing would be that perhaps you may even experience the fellowship and presence of the Lord for yourself. My hope is that you will also have faith in my Lord Jesus as your Lord and Savior. After you have had your peaceful rest and reflective journey in my garden, feel free to invite others. As the Beverly Hillbillies said, "Take your shoes off. Sit a spell. Ye all come back now!

July 15, 2011
On April 25, 2011, we were evacuated on account of flooding. Since that time we have lived in two different (low grade) hotels trying to survive. During this time our van broke down twice, and we experienced power outages at the second hotel due to storms that included tornados. We also had a water leak and toilet problems with water shutoff overnight. Many of our CD family and local fellowship group helped to support us financially and with their prayers as we really needed both. We knew we were facing financial problems because Davidís hours had been cut, but not our living expenses. Since we could not afford to repair the flood damage and other repairs to the mobile home, we signed it over to the trailer court without receiving any compensation. No one would want to live there on account of all the flooding and we would have not had a good chance of anyone purchasing it with that fact and all the needed repairs.
June 17, 2011 we finally were accepted into a High Rise income based apartment, moving in on June 22, 2011. We knew God had a reason why we were going through such trials and our new apartment although small, is such a blessing. We no longer have to worry about the repairs, mowing the yard, or the rent going up as it is based on our income. The Lord even blessed me (Donna) with a roll-in shower that is so nice. I even have a few old friends who live here. Thank you all for your support and patience as we settle in to our new place. We have tried to continue to fill orders and keep everything as normal as possible. Please make note of our newest phone number. The ministry address and phone number are the same.
++++WE HAVE A NEW PHONE NUMBER++++812-473-3735
On November 17th, 2010, the corporation that owns the Mobile Home Court where we live decided to lock out our Phone and Internet provider. We did not have prior notice. We finally got a new provider. Since we were already cut off, we had to get a new phone number. This has been very difficult to deal with since we had the same phone number for over 30 years.
Thank God the e-mail addresses and web site are still intact. However, until Dec. 1st, I cannot update the web site and it has the old phone number on it. I also cannot get any of my e-mails until then unless I use another computer somewhere else.
Please remember us in your prayers as we continue to straighten out this mess.
Please add our contact information to your address book if you are interested.

The Lord's Supper Click Here for PDF
We have done a lot of teaching and prophesying about the False Communion. This does not mean that we should not continue to practice the true sacrament of the Lord's Supper or Communion in our own homes or fellowship groups. The following are suggestions for doing that. We need to remember the purpose of the Passover meal and the importance of trusting Jesus for everything we need in our lives as we realize the perilous times we are living in. When I prepare the sacrament I pray over myself for forgiveness, cleansing, anointing, and for the Lord to prepare the hearts of those who will be receiving it. We usually ask everyone to examine their own hearts before partaking, read the passage pertaining, and sing some praise music before, after, or both. After the sacrament is also a good time to anoint with oil and pray for individual healing. (Recipe found on the Internet)
Unleavened Communion Bread Recipe
1/8 C. Honey
1/8 C. Olive Oil
1/2 C. Water
1/4 t. Salt (sea)
Heat in sauce pan and mix well until it almost burns.
Add to that mix 1/2 C. Whole Wheat Flour and mix well.
Turn out onto floured board and knead until dough looks glazed.
Bake 20-30 minutes at 325 -350 degrees
This can be frozen and thawed when used later.
Communion Wine - Fruit of the Vine
There has always been much controversy about this, so we leave it to personal choice and prayer. If you choose to use real wine, it should be 1 part red wine mixed with 2 parts water as was the custom of the early church fathers. Or, you may use grape juice full strength. The point is to Remember Jesus.

We are also starting a new Series titled, "The Underground Church". It will consist of foundational teachings on CD that every Remnant believer needs. These teachings will also help you to understand the times we are living in, and to encourage you stand firm.
The Devil has tried in every way to keep real Remnant believers from having fellowship. We are starting a list of those who wish to contact other believers. We will not give out contact information until we have permission and we have had a conversation with each one on the list. This way you will not feel so all alone when you do not have a local group to fellowship with. You will have others to talk with.

Watch for "Voices from the Tin Tabernacle"
a 2 CD set to encourage the Remnant of God.
We had some people who preferred not to hear the Music on our site as I had not provided a way to turn it off. Therefore, I have edited the whole site and removed the music, but offer you the choice if you still want to hear "Onward Christian Soldiers Medley" Click Here
We want to help Remnant Believers from all over the world to get into contact with each other. In these end times Remnant Believers do not always attend the organized church, or if they do attend and realize the church is full of apostasy, they do know about other options. They yearn to have other like-minded believers to fellowship with. I will try to keep a mailing list with contact information to share with others that those that give me permission.
