  1. Hello,

    My name is Daniel Curry, and I come from Idaho, in the United States. I am writing to tell you that I have been collecting the greatest well attested Christian miracles of the last 2,000 years, and posting them on the ‘Deeds of God’ website, at http://deedsofgod.com There are over 140 now, I believe. These are true events which speak to the glory of God, but are little known in our day. There were Vikings, conquistadores, bandits, ship’s captains, kings, queens, monks, nuns, slaves, and many other real people that suddenly found themselves being used directly as a tool for God.

    Corporately these accounts comprise a stirring testimonial to the might of God, and the truth that Jesus is His Son, and our only path to salvation.

    So, please, take a look….read a few accounts, and please tell other Christians, from your church and churches local to you. We are told in scripture to ‘recount the great deeds of God to each new generation’, but while some churches do recount those events which are spoken of in the Bible, we fail terribly, for the most part, in retelling the A.D. miracles. They too are part of God’s glory, and we cannot let God’s enemies bury them in the dust bin of forgotten history, calling them myth. They were not!! And if you read only a few, you will see why Satan wishes them to be forgotten.

    Please help restore this knowledge to this generation of Christians both in your nation, and around the world.

    Thank you,
    Dan Curry Deeds of God
