Pastor Jeff Riddering of St. Louis tells the story of his missionary bother Mike Riddering who was murdered by radical Islamic terrorists in Africa. The tragic story was all over the local, national and international news.
Jeff provides a powerful and unpublished addition of this news.
Mike Riddering’s biological mother, when pregnant with him, went to the abortion clinic to have her unborn baby, Mike, destroyed. In the process she changed her mind. Mike lived! Jeff Riddering’ s family adopted Mike.
But Mike was to live a wild, self-destructive lifestyle of drinking, drugs, and generally “dead end” living. But at one point he came under great conviction from God. At the time he told Jeff, his brother, that he, Mike, “ … was going to Hell!”
The beautiful reality that, soon after, Mike was drawn into saving faith in Jesus, blossomed into wonderful change in lifestyle, and became an impacting missionary in Africa.
Jeff provides an overview of the many works of God advanced through Mike: drilling fresh water wells for the people there, starting and maintaining an orphanage, caring for abused and neglected women … on and on! Jeff and a missions’ team have visited and supported the work for years.
Jeff went to Africa to officiate in the funeral of his brother, the great missionary of Jesus, Michael Riddering.
