The motor vehicle accident in 2004 was the start of a supernatural journey of faith for the McPherson family. Retah’s son, Aldo (then 12 years old), suffered a serious brain injury and was in a coma for several months. While Aldo was in a coma, he had a supernatural experience: he was in heaven, saw God, the angels, Moses and Abraham. Aldo came back with this message: “Mommy, I need to tell the world that Jesus is truly alive!”
A Message of Hope is the third book in a series wherein Aldo and Retah testify of the road of faith and hope their family has been walking on with God since the accident. Aldo’s letters written in his own handwriting, as inspired by Holy Spirit (or Wisdom, as Aldo calls Him), tell of his encounters with angels, demons and the fierce battle they engaged in. It brings sobering realisation that what happens in the unseen spiritual realm has a much greater effect on our lives than we think.
“Sometimes our circumstances are so overwhelming that we can lose all perspective and hope in the battle. Then we often give up and start agreeing with the lies of the enemy instead of standing up and fighting for our Promised Land. But how do you fight when you don’t know the nature or strategy of the enemy? Because of all that we have endured, I can say today with unshakeable conviction: God is faithful. You can trust Him; and in Him there is always hope!” – Retah McPherson

This is by far the most impact-full, insightful book on Spiritual principles we've ever read. We are so immensely thankful to YHWH for introducing us to Retha & Aldo's books. Of course it is so much more meaningful if you read the books in sequence. I experienced a new meaning of 'being salt' in this world. These books are like salt to me - it heightened my thirst for a closer, deeper walk with Yeshua, Ruach HaKodesh and Abba Father so much, it's almost unbearable. Father is much more patient with us that what we are with ourselves, so I learn to have patience, too. I'm so very thankful for people like Retha & family that where/are willing to 'take the flak' and put in the effort to share their journey with us. May YHWH bless them in abundance !
