  1. Life changing! In the best way. I thank God for my Godly Heros, and Randy you are God’s best. You are human sure, but you are loved by many. God did lift you high all the way to His right side. Amen!

  2. Howdy,
    I was a student at Rhema when you taught the class on Understanding Suffering. I was wondering if you personally had ever taught it again….and imagining that you have…I was wondering if the series could be purchased somewhere….or if maybe you had written a book covering the subject material?

    For some reason the other day some of the material went flashing through my brain and I had a desire to revisit it.

    Thank You,
    Mark Hartman

    • Hi, Mark…well, I have thought many times about writing a book on the subject of suffering, but, over the past few years, I’ve been too busy learning more about suffering with little time to write about it. 🙂

      Actually, such a book is one of many that I need to get busy writing. If you’d like, you can find me on Facebook and I will be letting folks know there when any books are available. I also will post something here on my blog.

      I appreciate your inquiry. Maybe it will help get me going on the project.

      Blessings to you and yours, Mark!


  3. Randy and Debbi,
    We were thinking of y’all and remembering fondly the Bible studies you led in our home in Fitzgerald during the time you were in Tifton. We can see from your bio that God has used you mightily in the intervening years. Would love to see you again, but if not on this side of Heaven, will be a great reunion there.
    In His love-
    Farise and Maxine Taylor

  4. Hi Ps Randy
    My name is Peter Snieder not likely do you remember me but was a pig farmer from Ontario My wife Corrie [ past away in Aug 2012 ] and I came to see you one day in ’95 or ’96. You were still in the old roller rink then. I know ……..that’s along time ago and i don’t expect you to remember. You then gave us some cd’s and tapes I just wonder if they are still available or if I may copy them.They are a great ministry tool for what I do now..I sold the farm and am being ” retreaded by God to minister to a lot of people including some pastors [believe it or not] who need to hear what you preached then. I can send an email with the titles. Hope to hear from you soon.

    Blessings from Canada Peter

    • I certainly do remember you, Peter. Sorry that it has taken me so long to reply. Didn’t you ask me about duplicating some messages. Feel free to copy anything you have, and if there’s something I might have that I can send to you, do not hesitate to ask. God bless!
