Carman

Post by Jan » Thu Feb 14, 2013 7:49 pm

From his facebook page:
I have delayed writing this but those of you I call friends and supporters, who have prayed for me and this ministry need to know about this new battle that lies ahead. One week ago I was diagnosed with Myeloma Cancer. It is incurable and I've been given a 3-4 year window of time. Tomorrow I go in for my first bone biopsy and the process will start. I used to go to movies in the afternoon, now I go see doctors. I write these things for a few reasons. First, I want to put an end to all the rumors. Second, I ask for your prayers. And 3rd, I want you all to know that I will continue to minister and win souls until I can't do it any longer. My life has always been about ministry. I have a call of God to touch lives with the gospel of Jesus Christ and that's what I will do until the Lord calls me home. Please, do not allow this facebook site to be an ongoing blog for cancer treatment remedy's. That would be depressing to everyone. If you have any insight you can message me personally. But I want to encourage you, if you can, to please come see me the next time I'm in your area. Bring someone who doesn't know the Lord or who needs to be healed. I will always pray for the sick and I'm also going to step up the intensity of my message at these events. I will not leave this world quietly and I want the devil to know that he put cancer on absolutely the wrong Italian. I have a few good years and before it's too late I want to see your faces, shake your hands and hug your necks. But mostly I want to see one of you get healed of what threatens your future and I really want to see someone you love come to Christ. Now lets get back to business, we have to work while its day for soon the night comes.
I love you all -C

How sad for him. While I am not a fan of his music, doctrines, or alliances, he is a believer and he is facing mortality with the right heart and motivation. God bless him.

Same here. It sounds like he will go out the right way; maybe someone will come to know God because of this. God bless him.

I've since moved on to other music since Carman, but he was influential in my earlier years. I will pray for him and his ministry.

I'll be praying for him, I was a big fan of his back in the day (and actually still am). God bless him.

I like some, not all of his stuff, and he is a great performer. I'm sorry he's dealing with this. He does have a good attitude.

Holy COW! :shock:

If the pledge numbers cam be believed, he's already had $200 000 put towards it, and some real big backers.
Well done my good and faithful servant, you may enter with me into paradise.

I actually like some of Carman's work. Sure he had some cheesy stuff, but he also had some cool anthem songs like "America Again" or "This Blood's For You". I wish I could give towards his cause, but money is tight.

I think it is cool that Carman raised double his asking; 5,043 Backers, $538,103 pledged, of $200,000 goal!!!
I hope the album lives up to the hype.

I am hoping to go through the rest of my life without hearing Carman's music. I dislike his stuff. sorry to hear of his ailments though.

He really is an acquired taste. I am surprised how much I have heard that there are people who have "cut their teeth" on his music but have eventually moved on. He must have that kind of ministry where he is a help to new Christians or something.

I know my father was one who got saved through his music. But no longer listens to him. He has an audience.
