Matthew 28:19 says "Go Ye Into All the Nations preaching the gospel." This verse impacted me when I was a little girl
in Sunday School at Tatum Chapel Baptist Church down Clear Creek Road in rural Springfield, Missouri. It would be
many years later that I truly understood what His "Calling" meant to me.
I grew up in church. My family built Seminole Baptist Temple where my Uncle Bob Johnson was the Pastor,my mom
Betty O'Neal, played the piano, my uncles were Deacons and my aunts were Sunday School teachers. We were there
Sunday morning, Sunday night, Wednesday night for prayer meeting and Thursday night was visitation. We were
there for weddings and funerals whether we knew them or not. Getting the picture?
It's a great memory and singing the songs of the Lord just comes second nature. He is so Good! He saved me and
continues to guide me every day of my life! It is so worth singing about! Love Him...He Loves You! So much that He
died for you!
The "Message in Song" is this: Jesus Christ is the Messiah. He came that we might have Eternal Life with Him.
(John 3:16) He is the God of Salvation and Healing. (Mark 5:25-34) All have sinned and come short of the Glory of
God. (Romans 3:23) For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord, shall be saved. (Romans 10:13) My hearts
desire is to travel full time to take the "Message in Song" on the road fulfilling Matthew 28.

|PRAYER for SALVATION
I confess with my mouth
that I am a sinner. I believe
that you are the Son of God
and that you died on the
Cross to save us from our
sins. I believe that you rose
again and you are returning.
I give my life to you so that
you are Lord of my life.
Cleanse me of my sins and
come into my heart today. I
love you with my whole
I recorded the song "Touching Jesus" when my sister Shelley Kaye O'Neal was diagnosed with
non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. That was 1996. She had been in remission all these years and died from not
cancer, but a result of the treatment. Her heart had been damaged by too much radiation and the surgery
to correct a valve then created a lot of scar tissue which prevented her heart to beat normally. Too ill for a
transplant, she knew it was time to go. I told her the story in the Bible of the Woman with the Issue of
Blood and said, "Shelley reach up and touch the hem of His garment!" I am told that just before she died,
she reached up and said JESUS!
Thanks to all who have loved her and prayed for her! She touched the hem of His garment and went
Home on January 11, 2014.
