Suffering is the prelude to grace

“No Crippled Girls in Heaven”  Lanita Eversole  A touching, heartbreaking home recording of little Lanita of Winchester, KY, who writes on the back cover “It is a privilege to try to bless you by singing just for you.  I’ve been through a lot of pain and sorrow all my life, but the Lord has always been with me.  I’ve been through about 13 major operations and I’ve been wearing braces on my legs about all of my life and like the song i sing … “There Won’t Be No Crippled Girls in Heaven,” and when I get to Heaven, I won’t have to worry anymore about pain or sorrows and Oh How I Love Jesus!”

Go Away Little Girl

“The Testimony of a Giant”   Artists Records   Southland Baptist Temple, Peducah, Kentucky

“I would like to introduce to you, Donny Osm… no… MAX PALMER.   Max was born in the State of Mississippi in 1929.   His father and mother were of ordinary size.   He is 7 feet 8 inches tall, weighs 385 pounds and wears a size 21 shoe.   He has been a professional wrestler.   He wrestled under the name of Paul Bunyan.   Made two movies, “Invaders From Mars” and “Killer Ape”.   Max says he is not sensitive about his size.   ‘The Lord made me this way to serve Him.’   He was converted to Christ in Oklahoma City after an accident in the year of 1958.   Was baptized into the membership of a local Baptist Church.   Since that time, he has become a great witness and a testimony for the Lord Jesus Christ.   He loves the Lord with all his big old heart and serves Him faithfully wherever he goes.   He is in great demand in churches and various organizations to give his life story and testimony.   I am sure the desire of his heart, after you have heard his testimony on this record, that you would pass it on to someone else.   He is truly a “Giant” of a man both physically and spiritually.”
