  1. Very touched by these God given words of wisdom. Haven’t experienced this kind of loss but I can relate to loss. The loss of my mom . The loss of life events . I know that feeling of hopelessness and wanting so badly for things to change. I am touched by your openness to give it all over to God. Prayers for you and for God to continue giving you comfort in your loss. You have spoken from your heart and may God bless you and your ministry and your son.

  3. “My, my biggest struggle, through this season, has been loneliness, because, for me, I lost, my, life partner, my best friend, my ministry partner, my lover. All of those things, and there’s so many different facets of who Amanda was for me, that now that’s gone, and I…” Me, me, me, I, my, me, me, I … Amanda lost her LIFE. Your SON lost his MOTHER.

  4. I lost my son on 9/22/15 he fell off a ladder after having a seizure he was living his dream in Nashville and was only 28 I have great faith as my dad was my Pastor most of my life, and Gary is in Heaven. Please pray for my daughter Rachel they were so very close and shes having a very hard time.

  5. Davey’s willingness to share about his very personal and real pain is powerful and revival will continue to touch the lives of others not only in Indy but from Indy to cities across the US to cities across the world. With technology it is easy now and will become easier to save and share his message in many kinds of formats to many diverse people from different cultures who speak and live differently from each other and this message will expand and thru this Davey’s story he will be the hands and feet of Jesus to both the lovely and the unlovely – the rich and the poor- all colors and races from white Anglosaxon to a dark skinned African to a Hispanic mother carrying a water jug on her head at the same time she’s carrying and balancing a set of twins on her hips! God didn’t want to keep Davey’s Blackburn and the tragedy and pain he faced to be wasted away after a few days but he wants Davey’s message from the heart to go wide and far across the globe!
