Greetings and blessings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. My name is John Mendola and I am here to testify to the grace of our Lord. I was driving to work one morning, listening to a CD, when suddenly my CD player stopped playing. The only radio station that would come in was a station that preached the gospel. I heard a testimony from a pastor (Raul Ries), speaking of the things that God had done in his life. On my way home from work, I heard my first verse-by-verse Bible study, by Pastor Chuck Smith of Calvary Chapel in Costa Mesa, California. Living in Southern California with a typical forty-five-minute commute in each direction left me with two choices: the gospel or nothing. After two weeks of listening to the messages, I then started attending the studies and became very interested in the Bible. The Holy Spirit opened my heart and eyes to Scriptures, and now my passion in life is to tell people about Jesus Christ. The Lord has used me as an instrument to preach His gospel around the world, and by His grace and power He has blessed me through His blood. I now await the inheritance of His Kingdom and a glorious crown of victory. May the power of the Holy Spirit give you the peace and joy of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

As I remain,

John Michael Mendola
