The testimony of a dying wife, mother, Christian.

Rachel BarkeyYou simply must download and listen to this speech, Death Is Not Dying, by Rachel Barkey. You will be encouraged, you will be moved, you will be challenged, you will need a tissue. I listened to it twice in two days and wanted to share it with the readers of DefCon.

Mrs. Barkey gave this speech in March 2009 to over 600 women after learning that she would be dead in a few short months; she died July 02, 2009. You can read more about her story here.

    I listened to this and was amazed at this woman’s courage and her determination to give God glory. Her doctrine is excellent. But the thing that really got me was when she was talking about how we all deserve much worse than we get. I have a strong sense of justice, especially when it involves offenses against myself:( She truly convicted me of my selfish, arrogant attitude. God is just. God is good. To Him be the glory! What joy to hear her testimony and her love of Jesus!

  2. I have listened to this many times and have even burned many CD’s to give away to people.

    This is maybe the most powerful testimony I have ever heard.

    I humbly say Amen! I love that when people are really changed in Christ, their character shines through. This character solely wants to bring glory to God and understands we best do this through afflictions. I feel convicted as quite a few things she said certainly apply to me. I am blessed through having been able to listen to this. Thank you
