Where We Are Now

After finding and remediating mold twice in our Colorado home, we abandoned ship in October 2008. Because of the high levels of exposure, our entire family was affected. After months of seeing different specialists for all of the problems, we came to Arizona to begin comprehensive treatment to rid our bodies of the toxic buildup. In August 2009 we moved into a larger home, four bedrooms, south of Tucson, north of Mexico. I am doing my daily radio program/ writing from that location. Thanks for praying for us. We really feel it.

Our first caller was Josh, a Schwann's driver/salesman. Several people found him in Sterling, Illinois and got his Chris Fabry Live! special.

To all those who listened, thank you! We have a great program ahead tomorrow.

After the show, the following e-mail came in regarding "scams" targeting Christians. Some good content here from Phillip R. Weisbrod, CPA.

"I heard your program but did not have a chance to call in regarding the Money Scams that people fall into. I run into this a lot in my business and here a checklist I give them regarding such “opportunities”

1) Think Guilty Until Proven Innocent - Ask for the Prospectus or Legal Filing Documents – public investment offerings are registered with the governing bodies and require full disclosure. If this is a private offering – stay away – there is no protection – this is a buyer beware situation.
2) Get That Mans Credentials - Ask for the “sellers” credentials (if you have ever seen the movie/show “The Music Man” you know how slick salesmen can be) – be sure to find out who the seller is connected with. Investment regulations require that those selling investments have a license and that license is usually held by a Broker/Dealer or some “authority.”
3) Delay of Game - Ask for time to think it over, beware of the salesman who says this is a limited time offer
4) Proverb 15:22 – Plans fail for lack of counsel but with many advisors they succeed – ask those who know better
5) Over ten think again – any investment offering more than a ten percent return needs to be researched thoroughly (a rule of thumb is that the stock market has returned about ten percent over its history)
6) Less is Better - Offer to invest smaller amounts – if the “seller” is not willing to accept a lower amount of investment – stay away
7) If in doubt stay out – if you feel uncomfortable about the opportunity then stay away
