The picture above is a living breathing miracle. I was supposed to be dead 6 months ago. That's was the original doctors verdict to my cancer diagnosis in February of 2013. Another 18 months of down time with chemotherapy but only 18 months of productive life. This was the end. It had been 13 years since I put out a national CD and toured but I wanted to record once last record for the fans. However no record company would touch me now. A dying artist is not good for business. But you, the faithful fans, supporters and prayer partners said "Well, we'll see about that. We believe God isn't finished with you". And with that the miracle started.
The online fundraiser raised enough money to make a new CD, promote it and even jumpstart a new tour. The first one in 13 years. All I had to do was stay alive. Then my prayer warriors started bombarding heaven. Dr.Bart Barlogie and The UAMS treatment center suddenly surfaced, specializing just in my type of cancer. They gave me an opportunity to be treated there before he retired. The remission rate was 8-10 years and possibly was inches away from a cure. But I had to leave today. The prayers and support of the saints. Long story short, 9 months of treatment, and 18 months of touring later, together we jump started a ministry that has lead over 5,000 people to Christ since May of last year.
Now I need you support to continue this national miracle story through our "Go Fund Me" campaign. I've improved the rewards.

Something I've been thinking about for a while and would like to know your thoughts: In every murder trial and in every crime drama we all know DNA is the key to a conviction. DNA separates one life from all others on the planet. No two people have the same DNA or even same Fingerprints. If your at the hospital and someone's in a coma, they can't communicate to protest, but you pull the plug on them while there's still a heart beat, it is murder. Separate DNA, separate Fingerprints and a separate heartbeat signifies a separate person. Unique and distinct to all others. DID YOU KNOW: A baby in the womb has separate DNA from the mother, separate fingerprints and a separate heartbeat ? Even separate brainwaves. I DO believe a woman should have the right to do with her body what she pleases. If she wants a facelift, a tattoo, a facial, a ring through her nose or a new set of dentures - she should be able to. It's her body, case closed. However if she's pregnant with a child growing inside her, that's a whole separate human being with its own DNA, it's own fingerprints, it's own heartbeat and it's own brainwaves. We learned from the Holocaust that's it's a crime against humanity to have the "right to choose to eliminate human life". I ask you, based on this, are you Pro-Choice or Pro-Life ? www.gofundme.com/carman
It's been coming for years. Now it's here. Anyone who holds biblical values and beliefs is now is wearing a bullseye. A Baker who wouldn't provide a cake for a 2 man wedding, gets taken to court. Instead if walking down the street to another bakery they use the opportunity to sue him into bankruptcy. Or a woman at a courthouse who refuses a same sex marriage license. This was never part of her job description when hired. Instead of firing her and putting someone else in place, they put the woman in Jail. Several pastors have lost thier churches through law suits because they would not marry same sex couples. Instead of going to another church that would, they seize the opportunity, sue the pastor, drain all his finances and put him in Jail. This is just the start. A gunman bursts into a church service in Charleston WV and kills 9 Christians just for worshiping the Lord. In Roseburg Oregon, a gunman lines up victims at a community college and asks if they are Christians, when they say yes, he shoots them in the head. And there is no outrage from the Whitehouse. This warfare isn't only in the social realm: Kim Clement, Americas premiere prophetic voice, the man who predicted 9-11 and the stock market crash, is struck down with a massive stroke while he was praying. And it hits home. I have won over a million people to Christ, served God faithfully for 40 years, then I'm suddenly struck with terminal cancer. "He who has ears to hear, let him hear what the spirit is saying". Folks this is an overall well planned attack from the forces of darkness to shut down the Christianity. Render us scared, frightened, take our leaders, take our courage then ultimately take us out of society. Through prison, bankruptcy or death. I remember being turned down for financial support while I was in 9 months of chemotherapy by 600 churches that I previously ministered at. It's broke my heart. But these events are not just meant to break our hearts - these things are meant to break "us". Last year I survived Cancer. But I "survived to serve". Since then I've been on 112 stages across America and lead 5,000 people to Christ. We did an outdoor outreach at Biker Week. Going to minister in places no one wants to go to. Yes I'm fortunate. I survived but I need to be doing this again. In more places, with new music, winning more souls to Christ. It's what I'm called to do. But I can not do it without your help. I need your support. "God provides through the hands of men but the heart makes the choice". Our Society is at war with Christianity. God restored me for a purpose. And I need you to support me in that purpose. Without your support I can not fight this war. Please check out the video link below. Ask God what part you are to play. Then in this world of problems, join me in being part of the solution. I need you. Can I count on you ? www.gofundme.com/carman
