Dr. Herrod was diagnosed  with multiple myeloma October, 2001.  The disease is now in remission. Please pray for total healing and strength to continue this ministry. Dr Herrod believes God is continuing to give healing and strength. He has chosen Psalm 118:17 for his faith verse - "I will not die but I will live to proclaim the works of the Lord."

Because of God given strength through the fervent prayers of many, Dr. Herrod continues his ministries in local churches and around the world. He has a limited number of dates available for this year. He would welcome the opportunity to share his ministry in your church.  Churches are finding the 48 Hour (Saturday - Monday) and the One Day Harvest Sundays to be very effective in reaching a harvest of souls. The international ministries of R.H.E.M.A. continues to grow and graduates of the Institutes are now planting churches in India, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Nepal, Kenya, and Liberia.
