Richie Simon in his own words

Richie Simon misiune

It was mentioned in the service that Richie wanted to gather people together and evangelize upon his return from serving in a mission assignment in the Honduras. Seven months into the mission the Lord took Richie home.

Read below words of wisdom, words which are beyond Richie Simon’s 23 years lived on this earth. In his public photo sharing account online, his motto is:

Glory be to The Lord God on high!

During the first night of the funeral service for Richie Simon, Philadelphia Romanian Assembly of God Portland played a video and some audio clips of Richie Simon. The clip starts with a slideshow of pictures. You can watch it here – http://livestream.com/prpc/2015-08

It starts at the 2:15:00 minute.

And here is a sample of what a tremendously faithful young man Richie was, a transcript of Richie Simon’s devotion to God:

Richie Simon:

~~     So far, it’s been a good day and we know God’s gonna lead us. It’s gonna be another blessed day. Every day, we learned something new, amazing. God’s showing us His glory every day and we’re so undeserving. And, He’s so amazing. But, yeah, today we’re gonna go to a town called New Hope and I know it’s gonna be very blessed. (from video)

~~ A message about the Honduras mission, where Richie spent the last seven months of his life, before the accident – It’s been amazing, an amazing experience. I’ve learned a lot. I’m still learning every day. We learn every day until we meet Jesus in His kingdom. God’s wisdom is so infinite, there’s no way you would be able to fit it in your mind- just the way the Holy Spirit works, it’s amazing. It’s not easy spiritually, but it’s good. It’s really good. I never bought I’d actually rejoice in trials. You don’t rejoice in these trials every day, cause some days are harder than others. But, God is teaching us every day, slowly, slowly, how to rejoice in these trials. How to just be content with Him even though everything is falling apart or like, something is going wrong, or you just feel like you’re being attacked. It’s because God is bringing you closer to Him. Closer and closer and closer and then you just start rejoicing in these trials because you start seeing the meaning of the trial. I am very, very blessed. Very, very blessed, I’m so happy I came here. I had many doubts. Then it came to a point where I almost didn’t come. But I know that God led me here for a reason.

Richie Simon 2~~On his salvation – It’s amazing that God actually gives us fulfillment and truth. We were miserable and I’d always think in those moments: There’s gotta be more than this. The Holy Spirit is always speaking, always convicting in what I was doing. The devil would come to me and be like, „Oh, you have time…” But then, when I’d really think about it, he would trick me even more and I would think, „Who knows if I’m even gonna get out of this?” I’d be so lost. I am so happy that He works with mercy. t’s amazing how much God changed me since I was in the world. God is juts so good.

~~Two messages to his brothers, first to Andrew, second to Adrian : God is so good. If we just open our hearts more to Him, man, He just gets us on fire now. Now, while we have time. Now, He reveals to us more of what is in His heart, while there is still freedom. Because, it’s around the corner. Persecution is around the corner. Chaos is around the corner. God reveals His grace to us. We have to be on fire every day! Every day, seeking Him, like we don’t know what’s gonna happen when we’re gonna go, doing work for God. It’s so amazing to be used by God!  It’s so amazing to have Him as a father and a friend! Somebody to just hold you up, to care for you, to love you. No matter what you’re going through, He’s your peace and comfort. I just wanna know Him more!

Adi, it makes you think. All these people are dying and overdosing  and dying. It makes you think about God’s grace, but, also of what happens when you walk away from God’s grace. You’re not secure. There’s no security. You can die any moment and that’s it. You go into eternity. Honestly, why would you ever wanna go back? No matter how crazy the attacks are, you have God. You have a security in Christ. That’s why it’s so amazing. And, do you know why it’s so sad? Cause, how many people can say that today? It’s so sad, they have security in money. They have security in their job or in their house or in their spouse, maybe in their parents. But, they don’t have security in God. Who’s got security in God today? If you think about it, we didn’t even come to Christ. God brought us to Him. He’s the one that took us to Him. So, we can’t boast in ourselves We can’t say, „Oh, I did something.” IT’S ALL HIM. IT’S ALL CHRIST.
