Duane Miller's Story
His Testimony is An Object Lesson For Forgiveness
His Testimony is An Object Lesson For Forgiveness
We are more than just a testimony. We are more than just faith and religion Making the Gospel real is our aim, our mission, and the motivation for everything we are about and do.
Enable the revelation of the Good News of Jesus Christ to every person on the planet realizing that the relationship between an individual and Almighty God is far more than religion or ritual, it is an opportunity to share genuine connection with the Creator of the Universe.
Our Core Values reflect our mission:
The Mission of NuVOICE Ministries is to teach/preach the Good News of God's forgiveness through Jesus Christ. Duane's experience is an object lesson of God's forgiveness...a physical way to "see" what salvation looks like...and our mission is to extend every opportunity to introduce Jesus to every person possible.
While pastoring a church in 1990, Duane lost his voice to an ordinary flu virus. Over the next 3 years he saw some 63 specialists plus their teams (over 200 professionals) who arrived at the conclusion that Duane would never speak normally again, and the rasy whisper that he had would not last past another 18 months.
NuVOICE Ministries was birthed by a newsletter called, Practical Christianity. When unable to preach due to his vocal impairment, publishing a newsletter was the only outlet available for sharing the truths and values Duane has always held dear. When his voice was restored, the name of the ministry was changed to NuVOICE Ministries. The first issue of Practical Christianity was published in November, 1990. It continues today as, "The Nuz."
We are concerned about sharing the Gospel around the world, so we partner with people and organizations who are called and committed to carrying the message and building the Kingdom in countries other than the United States
Did you know that Tanzania is the largest country in East Africa and includes the islands of Zanzibar, Pemba, and Mafia? Here are some more facts about the country ...
African Moons is dedicated to ministry to all Tanzanians. Sally Vann's dad began the school which is now Arusha Bible School in the late 1950s. Joylene Miller's father continued the work when the Corrells wento to Tanzania.
The ministry of African Moons is very close to the heart of NuVOICE Ministries and we endorse fully.
16 March 2023 - Day 386 of Ukraine at War
It doesn't feel like it's been a week since my last update as we have been extremely busy.
A week ago, just after the barrage of Russian missiles all over the country, our neighbor called Mark and said we had water coming from under our driveway and running into the road. Mark went out and checked, lifted the manhole cover where our water main is and it was filled with water. Thankfully it was clean water and not sewage; our neighbors were very glad to hear that. Our plumber of many years was out the next day, had to turn off water to half the village for about four hours, but he got it repaired and we've had no further issues.
We also had an electrician out to finish installing the new generator and it is finally connected and working. This generator is much quieter than the old one, will be more reliable and will supply the whole house.
We enjoyed a couple of days with our American friend, Maurice, as he came to Lviv to take care of some things. He came to Ukraine at the start of the war and has been here since working in many different ways as a volunteer with the Armed Forces. We continue to meet volunteers, many who have been here for a year, and they are all amazing young men.
Russia has begun using various types of gas against Ukrainian soldiers in the east. They have also been using white phosphorous again which emits toxic gases, as well as burning people and everything it touches. It has been a very serious challenge for the Ukrainians to deal with and we received requests for a total of 138 masks with filters for various units. Our good friends, Dan and Laurel Bardwell, who are long-time missionaries here and live across the highway from us came over one evening with two of their sons to help us bag up these orders. The masks come from Italy, are high quality, and protect against chemical, biological, and even radiological gases. Mark found a company here in Ukraine who was willing to make canvas bags to fit one mask and two filters. We enjoyed an evening of fellowship with the Bardwells, although we all wish the task we had would not have been necessary. They were such a great help to get this large order ready. We have 90 ready to be picked up which should happen in the next few days. A soldier from the east will be coming to get them but we were told today that they would wait to give him our address until he is away from the front and in no danger of being captured or killed. This is for our protection so that if his phone is captured, they would not have a location of people supplying the military. This is becoming the norm here - everyone looking out for each other.
Mark and I made a trip to a delivery service today and mailed a big shipment of cold weather and wet-proof clothing, along with New Testaments and Prayer Books. We found out there were many soldiers whose uniforms are wearing out or were destroyed in a missile attack on their base.
It has been quiet in Lviv for the past week except for multiple air raid alerts daily. There has been increased activity of Mig Fighter Jets capable of firing long-range missiles taking off from Russia and Belarussia many times daily. Ukraine never knows what their intent is so the whole country is put on air raid alert until the planes land. Yesterday Mark and I went to a mall to grocery shop and pick up cat food. The grocery store has a small cafe so we went there for lunch before shopping. Ten minutes after we ordered the air raid siren went off, which meant we would have to leave the mall. The server came to our table and said they would pack our order to go. So, once again, we had to take our lunch to the car to eat because of everything shutting down during an air raid alert.
We read the most absurd statement by Putin this week as he said, "Russia is in a fight for the existence of the State." If you look at the map below, how can any logical person believe that statement. Even an ounce of common sense could see that Ukraine could not possibly pose a threat to Imperialist Russia. It is past time for world leaders to stand up to Putin.
May Ukraine stay strong and have peace across her beautiful land soon. Thank you for continuing to support and partner with our ministry so we can provide help and share the good news and love of Jesus Christ our Lord. Sending our love to all of you. -R&M
Steven Ger grew up in a Jewish family in Brooklyn, New York and Aberdeen, New Jersey, where he was educated in both church and synagogue due to his distinctive heritage as a Jewish Christian. He is the founder and director of Sojourner Ministries, an organization dedicated to Exploring the Jewish Heart of Christianity. The name of the ministry is derived from the Hebrew meaning of Mr. Ger’s surname. In Hebrew, the word "ger" means sojourner or wanderer. This particular "wandering" Jew’s faith journey has led him to the conviction that Jesus is the Messiah who was foretold in the Hebrew Scriptures.
Steve is the former host of the North Texas weekly radio show, The Jewish Heart of Christianity, and is uniquely equipped to comment on Israel, Judaism, and the Church. He has appeared as a guest expert on both radio and television. He is also the host of an hour-long teaching video, The Unleavened Messiah: A Portrait of Christ in the Passover, showing how Christ’s reinterpretation of the Passover meal instituted the celebration of communion and announced a new era in human history. Television audiences and church congregations alike have enjoyed Steven's leading in invigorating, contemporary Messianic worship. He is also an accomplished singer, pianist and songwriter whose composition, Jeremiah 31, was recorded by the Liberated Wailing Wall on their album, He Will Return.
Mr. Ger has led 16 tours to Israel with extensions to Egypt, Greece, Jordan, Turkey and Germany. He is an adjunct professor of Jewish Studies at Criswell College, and has lectured at Dallas Theological Seminary and taught at Tyndale Seminary.

Our Mission: To nurture children who have survived a traumatic injury, illness, or personal loss, such as the loss of a parent or sibling.
Champions Kids Camp was founded in 2001 by Singer/Songwriters, Bill & Kim Nash, in honor of their oldest son, Billy, who survived childhood Leukemia. Through a week-long camp, children between the ages of 8 and 12 are able to heal from the “emotional scarring” they have experienced in their young lives.
Over the years, CKC has helped thousands of children to move past their trauma, which gives them improved self-esteem & social skills, reduced fear and anxiety, higher grades in school, and the tools to become a productive part of our community.
The main objective at camp is to help instill a sense of pride in every child and let them know that they’re not victims, they’re survivors, and therefore, Champions!
Champions Kids Camp is a non-profit organization that was created in the summer of 2001. 501(c)(3) #05-0541975
