I am 69 years old male and have been a travelling Missionary for Jesus Christ for the last 40 years. 7 years ago I was a convert to the Roman Catholic Church due in part in a great part to EWTN Eternal Word Television Network, a Catholic Channel on satellite. I am married with 7 children, the 5 oldest who are in the process of becoming quite famous in Germany as the King Family band of singers. See www.kingfamily.de and also youtube type in king family music.
I live at present in Germany and have been a missionary in Europe Brazil India Ukraine and for a short time in USA. I have travelled through over 40 countries without much money and I live to this day entirely on donations from well wishers to our simple missionary work. Thanks for reading this. I look forward to reading about you and your comments on my two entries, "The four kisses and the flickerin eye of Jesus..."
 
Spiritual Experiences from vagabondfaith

Love on 2009-05-01

What is love? Love is the Total answer to everything. How is that possible? Simply because God is Love and He is the answer to every thing. Love is extremely difficult and in fact impossible except for one possibility. What is that? Help from the Holy Spirit. In other words help from God Himself. Wh...

An Amazing True Story To Help Sceptics To Believe on 2009-04-27

The year was 1992. I was now with my three kids living in Uzhgorod capital of Western Ukraine. It is very close to the border with Hungary and Slovakia. I went as an undercover Protestant missionary as the Communist influence was still very strong. Ukraine was still answering to Moscow and was not y...

Spirituality And The Pursuit Of Happiness on 2009-04-27

This is a subject which most of us if not all are interested in. We get glimpses of it but whatever we find that brings momentary happiness soon seems to wear off. When I was a kid, I desperately wanted a racing bike. I wanted a Phillips Jaguar. It hung ceremoniously in the window showing off its br...

Living As We Are Being Watched on 2009-04-26

We are being watched! It is hard to walk down the streets of London without falling under the surveillance of a TV camera. Big Brother is watching you. Apparently, and I am no expert it is very easy for Big Brother to listen in to our cell phone conversations. Many of us believe that our privacy is ...

The Incredible Journey 20 on 2009-04-13

We found out that there was a passenger ferry liner that plied between Singapore and Calcutta called the Chitundrum. It was very cheap and maybe we would get it for free but we would have to wait 3 weeks for it. This vessel had also caught fire and had been refitted. The passengers who mainly slept ...

The Incredible Journey 19 on 2009-04-13

You know, I wasn't absolutely sure that everything was going to work out. I was half expecting a last minute hitch. They had happened frequently enough. The authorities in the Port thought that we were really mad and I was half expecting them to triumphantly produce some Trump Card of Objection to s...

The Incredible Journey 18 on 2009-04-13

That was such a relief and very good news. Not only were we on the way to India but on the way to being a Father and a Mother. Every day I would go out and meet new ships and their astonished Captains and every day I would be back with no really good news. We found the old English club which was...

The Incredible Journey 17 on 2009-03-29

We went in the front entrance of a large building and asked at the reception if there was an English speaking doctor. Actually all the educated class spoke English and the less educated a good smattering. We were ushered into an office and there was God's man for us. He was very charming and listene...

The Incredible Journey 16 on 2009-03-29

We were able to talk to the Ferry owners but they would not agree to giving us a free passage but the donation from our Mormon Friends more than covered the cost. The Mormons also gave us very good advice as to how to travel. A long Arab scarf made from cotton to wrap around ones mouth and nose was ...

The Incredible Journey 15 on 2009-03-29

The weather was always fine and I do not remember one day of rain. We became experts at washing our clothes each evening and by the morning they were dry. So off we went and got about half way. I remember one lift took us to Asyut which is the town where Mary, Joseph and the baby Jesus fled to and l...

Incredible Journey 14 on 2009-03-29

Our first problem was to sort out the impossible situation that had arisen because of these unwanted Israeli stamps in our passports. We went to some very chaotic Egyptian authorities where we were shuttled from office to office. We tried to get some kind of an Egyptian document to get us over the b...

The Incredible Journey 13 on 2009-03-29

The Port city for Cyprus was Limasol and so the next morning we set off West in that direction. Now from time to time I make mistakes or as my wife would say, I blow it. What I am about to tell you is I think a real blow it stage of the Incredible journey. Everything depended on being in tune with...

The Incredible Journey 12 on 2009-03-12

We really had a very good week and we literally spent no money. Our small needs like shampoo and razor blades for shaving or tooth paste was all there for the asking. We just had to witness to people about our spiritual journey through life with Jesus Christ and how He was and is the answer to every...

The Incredible Journey 11 on 2009-03-12

Our next real hope was the port of Piraeus, next to Athens for a trip across the rest of the Mediterranean. That was our dream and goal. Every day we distributed scores of Pandita Ramabai tracts and collected pockets full of business cards. Xeroxing forty to fifty copies of P.R. Tracts was alway...

The Incredible Journey 10 on 2009-03-12

Our immediate problem was to find a Hotel. Once again we succeeded in our first try. Like I have pointed out this is not always the case and sometimes we have to wander around for quite some time before we find a place to stay. I guess the Lord allows this to happen to show us not to take things for...

About The Incredible Journey on 2009-03-12

This is a personal letter to you all to try and explain, THE PURPOSE OF IT ALL. By writing the Incredible Journey in about 15 to 20 installments there is a purpose. Most of us believe in God and the Spiritual World at least to some extent. Maybe our faith is mainly Hope rather than Faith. We are all...

The Incredible Journey 9 on 2009-03-08

What I am about to tell you is going to be very hard to believe. Our first lift was an Italian business man who not only took us about 50 kilometres but gave a very good donation in Lira and dropped us at a Motorway Gas station. This is a very good place to get our next lift from and we would very p...

The Incredible Journey 8 on 2009-03-06

Going through the straits of Gibraltar was our good bye to the peaceful North Atlantic. I had often been to Gibraltar when I was in the Royal Navy and this rock of ancient British supremacy stands guarding the entrance to the Middle Sea so famous in Bible times. The book of the Acts of the Apost...

The Incredible Journey 7 on 2009-03-05

While on this long trip with nothing much to do except reflect on the vast ocean which stretched much further than the eye could see was an awesome time to meditate on the this very unusual watery world. It has been said that all sailors are believers in the Spiritual. There is so much evidence ...

The Incredible Journey 6 on 2009-03-04

Now you can imagine what a disappointment that was. We had put our faith in this trip and here we were turned down at the last moment. Maybe the Lord had really failed us this time? This idea in putting so much faith in the spiritual world to help was a bit far fetched? Up until now never! But this ...

The Incredible Journey 5 on 2009-03-01

Brazil is a huge country. I think it is the 5th biggest country in the world. Russia then Canada then China then USA and then Brazil. Something like that. Because I was born in India, I did not need a visa and neither did my wife even though she was German. However by an amazing stroke of good f...

The Incredible Journey 4 on 2009-03-01

Now that we were in Santos, it was time to start visiting the shipping companies. Most of these were situated in the Port and Dock area which was surrounded by a high wall and there were about three or four entrances which were guarded and one needed a pass to get in. On our first morning after earl...

The Incredible Journey 3 on 2009-02-28

Soon our time in this five star complex was coming to an end. We decided to leave our 3 trunks in the Sao Paulo free storage. So far everything seemed to be working to plan. We did have some narrow escapes from criminals. In the crowded places there were many bag snatchers and we always had to hang...

The Incredible Journey 2 on 2009-02-26

That first step was easy. However the longest journey begins with one step. We just had a further 9000 kilometers to go to reach our halfway point in Europe. If you were to stop and think about it it was quite ridiculous. It was best not to think about it and instead to think about all the spiritual...

The Incredible Journey on 2009-02-25

My wife and I were Christian Missionaries in Brazil. The year was 1984. We were both living on a farm which had been lent to about 20 of us Missionaries and their children, by a Christian supporter and was a school for the kids and a base to operate from. It was in a small village called Guararema, ...

Meeting A Black Angel In Down Town London on 2009-02-21

Reading a blog today on spiritual experiences web site reminded me of my meeting a black angel some 40 or more years ago. I was aged about 27 and working in Lloyd's Insurance in the city of London. I was a very new Christian. I was working closely together with a Protestant Baptist Missionary Moveme...

Life Through Spiritual Eyes on 2009-02-18

I have written now quite a bit about death and its consequences, but what about Life? In the Gospel of Saint John Chapter 10 verse 10, Jesus says very clearly the following. The thief (Our old enemy Satan the Devil) cometh not, but for to steal and to kill and to destroy. I am come that they may hav...

Death: The Ultimate And Inevitable Spiritual Journey on 2009-02-15

I really appreciate this web site because it gives all those who come here the opportunity to reflect on a neglected reality. The Spiritual World! Three score years and ten is about the average life span, about 600, 000 hours approximately if my calculations are correct. These hours can slip by very...

Spiritual Blindness on 2009-02-12

Dear Friends, God bless you! Hope you find this next blog interesting. The purpose of these blogs is to remind one that our life in this material world is severely limited. I am a member of a Prayer warrior list where people ask for prayer for themselves and for others. The latest request was for a ...

Choice Of Spiritual Experiences on 2009-02-09

I believe we can choose what kind of spiritual experience we want to get involved in. One of the greatest gifts from our creator is free choice! Of course when I was small and I did not know God or hardly anything about Him and certainly I had not made any kind of a choice for Him or against Him, th...

Two Miracles In One Day on 2009-02-07

Yesterday the 5th of February was a wonderful and very unusual day. As usual we start the day in front of the Tabernacle. This is a very spiritual place where the consecrated hosts are left inside a cupboard marked by a red light in any Catholic Church. The host we believe is the physical presenc...

A Heavenly Visitor on 2009-02-05

While back in Germany in 1995 the leader of our Missionary movement died. By this time I was only a loose kind of third order member of the Missionary group and was running my own little sect called Your Team for Jesus operating in Ukraine. I would like to recount an event, which you might find inte...

The Internet And The Spiritual Good News, The Gospel on 2009-01-21

I don't know about you but I think the Internet is an amazing place to find and transmit all kinds of information. In the old days the best one could do was to make a trip to the Public Library and then climb up and down ladders and take out books hopefully the right ones and maybe use a copy machin...

The Summit Of Spirituality on 2009-01-18

Life is a continual learning process. I am slowly beginning to see very late on in life, (better late than never) that the most important lesson we have to learn is Love, REAL LOVE or Agape Love. This is the kind of love that Jesus taught and is in my opinion and in the opinion of many others the su...

Thankfulness on 2009-01-09

What do you think? I think thankfulness is a great Spiritual Gift from God. Let me tell you why I am thankful. Maybe you will be able to relate. I have been a Christian for the last 45 years. I have had a personal relationship with Jesus Christ during all that time and although I have let him dow...

Miracles Of Provision And Answers To Prayer on 2009-01-09

One of the ways that I know that God loves me is because He has very faithfully supplied my finances over the past 40 years. Of course John Ch 3 v 16 shows me how much he loves me and it would be very good never to forget that. If you don't remember what that verse says let me remind you. "For God...

Twilight Zone on 2009-01-08

Have you noticed that often spiritual phenomena occur at that time when one is neither fully asleep nor fully awake. One might call it a sort of twilight zone. When I was about 8 or 9 I would have recurring scary experiences when lying asleep on my back and it felt as if an evil presence would enter...

The Lord Put A Picture In My Mind on 2009-01-07

As usual we, that is my wife Irmgard and myself, were out on the Walking Street of our local town called Gummersbach close to Cologne Germany. I say as usual but we have just been experiencing really extreme and very unusual weather at minus 18 Celsius or about 12F. By 12 midday it was up to about m...

Two Opposing Spirits, Cain And Abel on 2008-12-30

Can you relate to one or both of these spirits? Please read and let me know what you think. I am very open to suggestions and ideas from all. A reading from the Bible Genesis Ch 4 verses 1. The man had relations with his wife Eve, and she conceived and bore Cain, saying, "I have produced a man ...

What Makes A True Religion on 2008-12-27

What is real religion? Now I am going to try and answer that question and of course this is just my opinion and let's see if you agree or if this gets you to react in indignation or approval. I would love to hear from you either way. That is how we learn and broaden are education. So please read the...

Horizontal And Vertical on 2008-12-18

In trying to explain the Spiritual world to people who have very little concept, how about this for a shot at it? In 1954 my brother Bill, (William Rodney Stuart King) was tragically drowned in a sailing accident. I was 16 at the time and was in my first term at the BRNC Naval Academy at Dartmout...

Spiritual, Contemplative Prayer on 2008-12-16

I pray quite a bit. It is just me talking to God and He talks to me mainly through what I hear from the Bible. This comes from reading the daily liturgy readings and even more now from listening to really expert Bible teachers like Father Robert Barron. The Robber Barron as I call him. I do not know...

Was This An Angel on 2008-12-14

In all our travels through over 40 countries, we met some very nice people and on one occasion I believe we met an angel. Let me tell you the story. We (My wife and I) had to hitch hike to a Christian Convention about 100 kilometres outside Sao Paulo, Brazil. Hitch hiking was and still is a way of t...

The Whole Purpose Of Life on 2008-12-03

Have you ever thought seriously about why you are here on this earth? Was it just by chance? Is it meaningless? Supposing that having thought carefully about these questions you come to the conclusion that yes, I am here for a purpose then what is it? Is it to be a success at some job as a Politicia...

My Journey Home on 2008-11-23

So! I am 70 years old today the 22nd of November 2008. 70 is quite a land mark. The Bible states that three score years and ten is about the limit but by reason of strength another 10 years is possible too. With modern medicine and taking care of ones body, which I haven't done as I am well over...

The Mystical World on 2008-11-12

We all hear people say that "This is the real world!" or "You need to have your feet firmly planted on the ground." What they are really saying is that they do not believe in the spiritual world. The fact is Our world where we live in Time and in a Material Way is not the real world. It is a dim...

A Glimpse Of Heaven on 2008-10-05

Well known Saints like Saint Paul and Saint Francis and many others have had really intense moments when they had such awesome experiences of being caught up into the Spiritual realm, that it was almost impossible for them to put them into words. They were so acute that had they gone on too long the...

An Old Trout With A Heart Of Gold on 2008-09-06

I hope this story will qualify as Spiritual. I can assure you that the success was entirely through spiritual prayer and applying Spiritual Love as in the natural course of things this would have been impossible. We live in our trailer in one of the most idyllic spots on earth. Surrounded by fore...

The Four Sweet Kisses And The Flickering Eye Of Jesus on 2008-07-20

I have not had so many spiritual and supernatural experiences in my 69 years of life but in the last month I have had two close together. They are very fresh on my mind and I will do my best to tell them to you as accurately as possible. First a little about my background. I have been a Protesta...

A tremendous and heart moving story of how wonderful God is and how amazing your experience is. Thank you for sharing and I believe many people will be helped by your testimony
Date: 2009-05-30
The world is in such a crisis situation not only economical but with the real threat of Nuclear war, Your experience is so comforting for all of us. Jesus is real and He is so close and it is very exciting to know him.
We can talk to Him all the time and when we read the Bible we can hear him talking back to us. Thank you for sharing such a wonderful experience
It was very smart of you to say a prayer to God. When you say God do you mean Jesus or just God. Either way it was a good step, but if your experience was coming from the negative side then The Name of Jesus is Super Powerful. I have never had an out of the body experience. Many have and I am sure others will write you soon about it. I have loads of spiritual experiences and when they are linked to a strong faith in Jesus Christ, then they are all very positive and without fear. Just remember the other side is equally real. Hope that was a help. Have a good day and write back if you want to. I have written a great deal on this site and maybe some of my blogs could be of a help.
Date: 2009-04-15
It is so important what you shared! Thank you!
God bless you for it. I believe it will help many others. That is one of the main reasons we are here. We are to help others. Life without helping others is meaningless. By sharing your experience and sharing all about the amazing love of Jesus Christ the second part of our triune God will be of tremendous help as it comes from your own personal experience.
Onc again, Thank you very much dear Skylark.

A great experience. Was it Jesus of Nazareth or Joseph as you wrote?
God bless and have a great day! 😁 😊
Do you know the Story of the Guadeloupe apparition? It is absolutely awesome. It is a physical proof of the existence of God and of the Spiritual world. Thanks for your blog! God bless you!
Dear Nataszha
Thanks for your comment, Did you read any of the other parts of my blog? 17 out of 20 published so far?
Dear Ashurie I got to see my Guardian angel and you can read about it in one of my blogs on this website called Twilight Zone. Have fun reading it and I hope you are sleeping well these days. Don't hesitate to keep in touch as I would love to hear from you on this website or by email michaeljaffrayk [at] yahoo.co.uk

Hi Pink
Just reread your blog. I too am a warrior but maybe not quite the same way as you. I read your explanation of a warrior and it left me rather blank. There is a fight going on in this world all the time and I mean alllllll. It is a relentless war between Good and Evil. The Evil side play very dirty and are extremely destructive and are playing for keeps. The Good side fights back with weapons which are an anathema to the Evil side. LOVE being the principal Atomic Weapon. I am not very good at wielding this weapon but I am learning. It is very hard to do as otherwise everyone would be doing it. It is not getting upset when unjustly accused. I nearly always do. That is my first unguarded reaction. Then I think and pray and meditate on what Christ did and does. It would help to see Mel Gibson's movie the Passion or to tune into Father Robert Barron, Word on Fire and then I believe perfect freedom would be in your grasp. Hope that sounds understandable. Would love to hear from you on this website or at michaeljaffrayk [at] yahoo [at] .co.uk by email.
One more very important thing I forgot is to get familiar with God's Word in the Bible. Start reading the Gospel of Saint John in the New Testament. Read it like God is talking personally to you through these amazing words and you will become a lot better. Then read the other three Gospels. Just a little bit each day and think about what you read. Please contact me and I can help you lots more if you want. God bless you with a beautiful day.
Dear Katy AD
Thank the Lord that you have found Jesus. He is much much more powerful than all the demons combined. Just use His almighty and powerful name to expel anything bad that bothers you. Just say out loud if you are in private and under your breath when in public, "I rebuke you in Jesus Name!"
Then make the sign of the cross and you will be just fine. You have to mean it of course and when the enemy sees that he will be forced to flee. I have done it many times and Jesus never failed me even though I do Him many times as we are all just weak human beings. We have an awesome God on our side who loves us and wants to help us. We can never be too bad for Jesus but we can be too good. If you do not understand what I mean let me know and I will explain more. Have a great day

Dear just in time, where did you get this idea from that we sign a contract before we are born as to which lessons we are going to learn. Sounds very interesting, but where is the evidence for this? Look forward to hearing from you.
Date: 2009-03-19
I read your blog again and am so happy that you are a real believer in God. I really look forward to hearing from you when you have the time. Maybe you could read some of my blogs and hopefully they will be of an encouragement to you too.
Date: 2009-03-19
I have been reading the above comments by just in time, beautiful day, and crystaldart.
I can only speak from my experience and from what I believe to be true. I believe all gifts come from God and these gifts are not to really benefit you but to benefit others. If I have a healing gift then it is for me to help others not really to give me some kind of power trip. It is wonderful to use your gifts because the whole world needs them. We live in a very hurting world and there are so many who are suffering not only physically but spiritually. As a Christian we believe we have the answer. I f you want to listen to a really good source of spiritual teaching I can really recommend Word on Fire ministry with the famous Catholic Priest Father Robert Barron. Just Google Word of Fire and you will find him and tons of advice that will set you up for the rest of your life. This website is so excellent because it gives us all the opportunity to express the reality of the spiritual world. However we have to realise that God does not have a monopoly on the Spirit world. There are hoards of other spirits flying around and we have the free choice to try them all out. For what its worth in my opinion, God is the best by a long streak. I have found this out after 70 years of battling it out in this extraordinary life that we were handed on a plate.

My guardian angel experience is written in a blog called Twilight Zone on this website. I hope you enjoy reading it. About your angel. It is interesting that your experiences with your Guardian Angel have only been good. Ie when you go to sleep you pray and get a good nights sleep. Your sister on the other hand sees it as something rather sinister. As a Christian many people think that my zeal and enthusiasm for Jesus Christ and the Spiritual World is very sinister. So it all really depends on where your sister is at. Maybe she is at a stage like so many in fact the great majority who are not really interested in JC and the Bible and Christianity in general. I do not know. I personally believe that if you have faith in the God of the Bible and the God of the Christian Church, you have the most powerful forces on your side. All the rest that evil can produce is peanuts! By comparison. Take Jesus seriously and you will always win in this life and the next. God bless have a good day.
Date: 2009-03-18
It is wonderful to hear that you have this gift. In the Bible it says that the gifts and callings of God are without repentance so you do not have to be a devout christian to have spiritual gifts. It would be great if you realized that what you possess is a gift from God. Just as our life had nothing to do with us wanting it, it just happened. God allowed it and has a wonderful plan for your life and for mine. We just need to want to be used and also to get to know the Giver. I would say as a Christian that it would be a good idea to look for the truth. The Truth is there for all who really want it. We just have to ask and God being an extremely loving God will go out of His way to let you know. That is my experience. I am not so sure who reiki is but maybe he can help too. Just check these ideas out and see what really works. Any way God bless you. Keep in touch on this website or personally to my email address. Michaeljaffrayk [at] yahoo.co.uk

There are so many evil spirits around us all the time. They crowd and inhabit our world. When we let down our spiritual defenses of a simple child like faith in God and His Son Jesus Christ then we are easy meat for them. Why don't you and your sister pray the Lord's Prayer when you experience him again and make the sign of the cross by touching your forehead then your stomach and then side to side on your shoulders. Watch the reaction of the black angel carefully. My angel has a golden head and a light sky blue robe and is quite small about the size of a 10 year old child.
No wings and no gender. That's my experience.
Please keep in touch on this website or with me personally on email michaeljaffrayk [at] yahoo.co.uk

Dear Gordon
You are absolutely right! God is so awesome and He is awesome because of His Great Love which like you say is so indescribably beautiful. Jesus had to suffer by Himself without any help from His Father so that He could really take all the sins of the World on Himself. This recorded cry was to show us that He really was absolutely alone with no magic help. All the pain and humiliation was so real. Have you seen Passion produced by Mel Gibson? It is really worth seeing. Keep in touch either on this website or to me by email michaeljaffrayk [at] yahoo.c.uk

We are all so special and that includes you. You never asked to be born, but you were just like that. We are not really sure where we were before being conceived. Somewhere in God's plan of things. Angels are real and we each have a Guardian Angel. We can name them if we like. They do not mind. We need to chat to them from time to time and thank them for taking care of us. I need to much more than I do. I did see mine once and I think I wrote a blog about it. I have written so many on this excellent site.
I think the main thing I want to tell you is that you are very special as otherwise God would not have sent you to this earth. Keep in touch with me on this site or by my email michaeljaffrayk [at] yahoo.co.uk
Date: 2009-03-17
Very good story and no you are not crazy. You are just in tune with the wonderful spiritual world that surrounds us and has amazing treasures to be searched out and tapped. God does want us to learn our lessons here on earth so that we do not have to learn them later on in Purgatory. Look forward to more of your stories and experiences. Keep in touch either here on this website or direct wit me michaeljaffrayk [at] yahoo.co.uk
Have a great week!
