Tom ShufordJohn 14:1-4  “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. And where I go you know, and the way you know.”

Dearly Beloved:
May God’s peace, comfort, glory, and light be ever upon you.
It is with a deep and heavy heart that I must report to you that one of the most decent human beings that I have ever met has died today. My dear brother, mentor, friend, and pastor Tom Shuford has gone to be with the LORD. I found out not twenty minutes ago. I am thankful that he is no longer suffering and happy that he is with the LORD, but that does not stop my heart from hurting nor prevent me from feeling his loss. I miss my brother. He was one of the kindest and gentlest souls that I have ever met. His bravery and strength was a wonder to me. The LORD sent him to me in my darkest hour.

In April of 2014, the Lord blessed me with Tom’s presence for the first time. It was one month prior to the beginning of my triple murder trial. I knew that I would be going in front of an all-white jury, in a city that was not my own, clothed in brown skin, and labeled a drug dealer. I didn’t stand a chance and I knew it. I was nearly five hours away from home with no one there to support me. My faith in GOD was strong, but I would be lying to you if I said I was not lonely and frightened. And then came my brother, Tom. I knew instantly he was a GOD-send. His body was frail, but his spirit and strength were absolutely remarkable. I am reminded of a saying which was passed on to me, “Sometimes GOD calms the storm. Sometimes He lets the storm rage and calms His child.” When I met Tom, I was in the midst of a terrible, raging storm and GOD ALMIGHTY sent Tom to calm HIS child. THANK YOU, JESUS! HALLELUJAH! PRAISE HIS NAME!

My life was never the same after I met Tom, nor shall it ever be the same now that he is gone. Nearly four years after we met, he is gone. My brother Tom had been battling several chronic ailments for over thirty plus years of his life. He fought hard. He fought valiantly. He held his head high throughout and I never heard him curse or say an unkind word about anybody. His wife who was by his side for nearly twenty years, was there when Tom fought the last of the battle. She told me he remained brave until the very end and insisted that the doctors do all they could to keep him alive. Tom was not scared of death. NO SIR! For he was a true believer and soldier of the LORD! It was not for fear that he did not want to die, it was so he could continue to serve the LORD by ministering to people like me. You see, even though he was sick and suffering and he knew he would be with the LORD when he died, he wanted to stay here as long as he could to help the LORD save the LOST souls. AMAZING! THANK YOU FOR TOM JESUS! The LORD in his grace and mercy said: “ENOUGH MY SON, IT IS TIME TO COME HOME WITH ME.” And bring him home he did. No more suffering. No more pain, my brother. LORD knows I miss you, Tom. I pray I blessed you even half as much as you blessed me. Thank you for loving a wretched sinner like me. Thank you for your kinship and kindness. Thank you for believing in me. Thank you for fostering and mentoring me. I have so-called friends and family that knew me my whole life and never showed the kindness, generosity, nor dedication that Tom did.

I have been writing a book about Tom and me. I vow to finish and publish it. I want the whole world to know how special Tom was. I vow to pick up his mantle and serve the LORD in his honor. This website and ministry would not have happened if Tom was not the instrument of the LORD that he was and still is. He touched so many people. He served faithfully till the end. On Monday the 26th of March 2018, he went to a prison to preach the gospel one last time. He was sick, but he still went. A few hours later he went to the hospital where he died the next day. I wonder how many of us will be able to say that we served the LORD till our dying day? Tom, my brother, thank you for being an example to us all.

I would love to write more, but my tears won’t let me right now.
I dedicate this song to my dear brother in Christ.

May GOD bless and keep you! May your heart be pure!
May none of us ever forget Tom Shuford!
Love In Christ,
Randall Daluz

Dearly beloved: May GOD’s peace, mercy, love, joy, and healing grace be ever upon you. Pain, it is the most difficult of all our emotions. It is also the most destructive. If left to fester, it leads to hate, anger and sadness. If we do not control it, it makes us depressed and causes us to lash out. As a convict in a supermax prison, I am living in a house of pain. I myself sometimes suffer from it. It is very easy to fall into despair when you are serving a life sentence for crimes you did not commit. Satan loves to kick us when we are down. He often tries to plant doubt in my head. He tells me there is no use in fighting for my freedom or seeking justice. He tells me that I am worthless and hopeless. He tells me that no matter what I do I will die in here. He tells me that nobody cares about a colored ex-drug dealer and alcoholic. He tells me that I am a failure and. a loser who is washed up. He says I am nothing more than a waste of talent and no one will take pity on me or believe in me. I am not going to lie to you. Even as a man of faith, sometimes I want to give up and believe his dirty lies. There are times when my family is not able to visit me for months. During those times I often break down and cry. I sleep all day unable to get out of bed. A lot of you know exactly what I am talking about. Don’t you? Don’t you just want to give up and die sometimes? You see, we may not be in the same boat, but we are all traveling on a turbulent river called life. We can relate on many levels. You know what I do at my lowest points? I pray and read my bible and sometimes I feel instant joy, but other times it takes me a while to come out of my funk. This situation hurts and at times it feels hopeless. (read more…)

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCwi858rGRPg0lFFVycFvvWADearly Beloved: May GOD’s Love, peace, mercy, and understanding be ever upon you. I regret having to write yet another post about a mass shooting. These senseless acts of violence weigh on our hearts. To my brothers and sisters in Sutherland Springs, Texas, I send my deepest condolences. I am so very sorry for your loss. I know that you know that your loved ones are in the hands of our mighty father. They are at peace and are living in the splendid bliss of our LORD. You will rebuild your church congregation. You will someday heal. Just do your best to give your pain to JESUS. PRAISE HIS NAME! God did not cause this pain, but He will see you through if you let Him. We Love you very much and we are praying earnestly for you Texas. The thought of this happening during a service is incomprehensible to me. I am at a loss for words. I just wanted to send this prayerful message to you and to remind you that our GOD is an awesome GOD. I ask all of our readers from all over the globe to join me in prayer, not only for Texas but for all victims of violence and all persecuted people everywhere in the world.

Dearly Beloved:  May Gods grace, peace, mercy and love be ever upon you.  Let me start by giving my heart felt condolences to all of the victims of the Las Vegas massacre.  The man who perpetrated that act was obviously very troubled and no doubt plagued by demons.  Evil is ever present awaiting an opportunity to infect us and turn us against each other.  The further away man drifts from God, the easier we are to manipulate.  Even those of us who are saved must maintain constant vigilance.  We have to stay in our bibles and go to church.  The Word is our shield and our guide.  If we stray from the path of light, then we open ourselves up to sin.  Let me tell you that from experience.  Being in prison is very difficult.  There are no words to accurately describe it.  You have to live it in order to understand it.  I have strayed from the path on more than one occasion and each time I have been met with catastrophe.  This is a very unforgiving environment.  You can be beaten or stabbed in the blink of an eye.  It is very difficult to stay on the path.  I struggle.  We all do.  None of us are immune to evil.  Once infected, it will consume us if we do not enlist the help of our LORD to expel it.

https://www.pexels.com/photo/vintage-old-start-typewriter-101708/Dear beloved brothers, sisters and valued friends.
Let me start by offering you all a very sincere apology.  It has been too long since I have written.  I am in the middle of my second appeal.  I have been working very hard on proving my innocence and exposing the corruption of our broken justice system.  A very well respected and well known legal scholar has written about my case and the poor job my ex-lawyer did defending me.  It has set the legal world abuzz and could lead to the case being overturned – only by GOD’s mighty grace!  I feel Him working on my behalf.  More importantly than going home, I want to expose the racism and corruption and bring it from darkness to light.  Doing so is my duty as a Christian and an American; for by preventing others from suffering what I and countless others have experienced, l am following my LORD’s command: Love thy neighbor as ye love thyself.  People are getting lynched in the courtrooms of this country.  They are being brutalized by corruption, degraded by hate and hung by injustice.  Our brother Martin Luther King said “An attack on justice anywhere is an attack on justice everywhere.”  Amen!  Too many of us Christians sit idly by and watch what we know is wrong in silence.  And in so doing, we become accomplices to satan and his evil schemes.  It is not only people of color that this is happening to.  Poor white brothers and sisters are being lynched too.  Class-ism has always been one of the many vile faces of racism.

Dearly beloved:
My GOD! MY GOD! MY GOD!  Please, Father, bring comfort to the family and friends of Heather Heyer.  Oh LORD, let her death not be in vain.  LORD, let the hate mongers fail and fall!  AMEN AND AMEN!!!

I send my most sincere and heartfelt condolences to the LOVED ones of Heather Heyer and all those who have suffered loss due to the wickedness of hate.  My beloved, I am angry, hurt and outraged over what is happening in the streets of America.  A brave and beautiful person named Heather Heyer was murdered by a confused, racist coward in Charlottesville, Virgina.  I am proud of Heather for standing up to racism.  I am proud that she was white and yet she stood up for people of color like me.  I am proud of her courage and patriotism.

As I sit here watching events unfold, I am struck by the fact that people are actually fighting to keep statues of American traitors and tyrants.  Why not put up a statue of Tim McVeigh?  He was a white supremacist terrorist traitor who attacked his own country just like the confederates.  It would be equal to the statues of confederates.  This is America and we ought not celebrate tyrants who seek to destroy what we stand for as a nation.  They should not be exalted.

https://www.pexels.com/photo/grayscale-photo-of-explosion-on-the-beach-73909/Dearly Beloved:  May GOD’s Grace, Peace, Protection and Salvation be ever upon you.  Folks, we may be headed for a nuclear war. We have all seen the news.  I had hoped and prayed for an end to this madness with North Korea, but it appears that war is inevitable.  Only GOD knows for sure.  As a Christian who has eternal salvation I do not fear for my own life.  I welcome the opportunity to be with my LORD, but I fear for those who are not saved.  I am neither suicidal nor in a rush to die.  I have a purpose and a mission to LOVE and spread salvation on behalf of JESUS CHRIST.  That is my reason for being.  Thus, I must fight at all cost to live.  Like all Christians, I am duty bound to serve the LORD in this way.  Right now, I fear not for myself but for my family members who are not saved and all unsaved people all over the globe.  I want to see all of you in Heaven.  I want all of you to have the assurance that I have in the LORD.  All of you out there in the free world are the reason this site exists.  I am not some “doomsday prophet”.  The LORD has said that we neither know the day or the hour of His return and He meant it.  I know a lot of you are scared right now.  You know who should be the most frightened right now?  The people who have not accepted the LORD as their Savior.

This threat we now face is not just an American threat.  This threat is a world threat.  It affects all of us.  This is the biggest threat our world has faced since World War 2 and the Cuban Missile Crisis in the sixties.  We had to come together as a world then and we must now.  It is sad, but it seems that the threat of world destruction brings us all closer together as global citizens.  Kim Jong-un is the evilest tyrant we have faced since Hitler.  He is a sociopathic dictator who forces his people to worship him as a god.   (read more…)

https://www.pexels.com/photo/graveyard-grave-stones-gravestones-graves-7911/Dearly beloved:  May GOD’S grace, peace, love, mercy and protection be ever upon you.  I want to talk to you about an equal opportunity employer – DEATH!  Death knows no color, political association nor gender.  Death kills indiscriminately.  I was very troubled by the news that a young and attractive woman by the name of Justine Damond was gunned down by a police officer in Minnesota.  She was a white woman, but regardless of the color of her skin, her death matters every bit as much as anyone else. The bullets that pierced her flesh did not care whether or not she was white or black.  The country is stunned and for the first time in a long time people are beginning to realize that we are all at the mercy of the police.  Our crooked and broken system of law needs to change.  The chief of police resigned over the incident which is something that I have not seen in the cases of murdered black men.  Death knows no color, but people do.  And that hurts us as a society.  I found it both refreshing and encouraging that people of color spoke out about this tragedy and I pray that more will.  It is only when we are able to truly understand and empathize with one another that we can truly begin to heal as a people.  My country is so divided by hate and misunderstanding.  The vultures who are in power use that division to blind us to the truth.  It is only when we unite in love that we will triumph over hate.  GOD is LOVE and LOVE is GOD!!!  I don’t know what happened in Minnesota.  None of us do.  I pray that people reserve judgement against the officers involved.  Don’t be so quick to point fingers; For in so doing you could condemn an innocent man for an accidental death.  I am praying for officer Mohamed Noor and his family.
