How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel and bring glad tidings of good news! My fellow laborers in the gospel of Christ, we are living in the last days, and they are evil ones. It is critical that we move with urgency, that we compel all that have an ear towards the sound from heaven, “TO GET RIGHT AND PREPARE FOR HOME”.
Through the tragedy that has befallen households worldwide, including the home of Pastor Gloria, (SON LOST THROUGH VIOLENCE) God is calling for us to “To Get Right and Prepare for Home”. By whatever, and through whatever means, we that are called by His name, are to sound the alarm, cry loud, spare not, and warm the people of the danger of not being prepared for the eternal destination, for this is not our home! If God has put this kingdom message in your spirit, partner with me as we prepare a generation and not fixate on a congregation, so that they can be ready to go home, FOR REAL!!!
Pastor Gloria was licensed in 1995, and ordained as the first female minister in 1998 by her Pastor, Rev. Asher Harris at Great Band MB. Church, Gary, IN. In 1996, Rev. Eldridge stepped out on the ministry vision that God gave her and Sister Sister “Total Body Ministry” was birthed out, and from this ministry a yearly week long “Keeping The Fire Burning” conference is held. In 2008 Bread of Heaven Kingdom Ministries came forth, where the vision is to build the kingdom, “one meal at a time, through lot’s of love all the time”.

MADE TO STAND
On August 18, 2009 my son, Lewis Eldridge Jr., (Two Ton) age 32 was shot down by what is known in this world as a drive by shooting. Needless to say that what the enemy meant for evil through this tragedy has led me and my family to “STAND” and believe even the more so, in the ever loving, tender mercies and faithfulness of God, for it is in our weakness that He is made strong. (Eph. 6:14)
MADE TO SHOUT
This is my walk through the “Valley of Baca”, and God has prepared a “SHOUT” in my spirit man, that I may “raise my voice like a trumpet, cry loud and spare not”, a voice that will "break in like a fire and like a hammer" (Jer. 23:29) After watching my son "die to soon" my call has now been upgraded to go the “extra mile” beyond the pew view, “after a "generation and not a congregation", the “SHOUT” will not fall on deaf ears, as it has been prepared by God, to stir people not just to only "give" but to “live” in such a way that God gets the glory for every story, for only what we do for Christ will last. (Isa. 58:1)
MADE TO PREACH
I was told earlier by a friend that I was to preach my son's eulogy, but because of what I saw happen the thought was that I might not be able to relay God’s "Kingdom Message" which must be articulated at all times, because of my inner pain. I was later told by someone attending my son’s services that I had indeed preached his funeral (“for we are living epistels read of men“), when I closed the top of the casket lid, tucked him in and told him to get his rest, for all our changes would come some day, and it is a "change that I believe in". How beautiful are the feet of them that “PREACH” the Gospel and bring glad tidings of things to come! (Rom. 10:14-15)
MADE TO TEACH
There is a time and season for everything under the sun, and only God knows the real plans that He has for us, for we are the sheep of His pastures, so, “TEACH” us to number our days so we will apply our hearts unto wisdom. I am committed to go with His flow for I am His "Servant Glo" and His “GLOW” is intended to light up the hearts of men so our Father who is in heaven may be glorified. (Matt. 28:20)
MADE TO REACH
As I closed the lid of the casket, our Father will open up the eyelids, unstop deaf ears, make the dumb to talk, and the lame to leap for joy in their hearts and not in a hearse. He has opened up the flood gates of heaven and His message for me is Loud and it is Clear, STAND, SHOUT, PREACH, TEACH, AND REACH, for “I came that you might have life, and life more abundant“. (Isa. 47:7, 61:1)
I am excited about my New Book just Released; “Dying & On Our Way to Hell, Where Is the Church”. This book describes how the Church has been unsuccessful in its “Original Mission” and that mission is; saving souls. It exposes the “Foolishness of Man to get back to the Principles of God.” Man has run God’s house off of brutish traditions; instead of by the power of God’s spirit. It is said that, “The Church is a Hospital.” This is true, but imagine going to the hospital to see a doctor and he or she takes your blood pressure: as he or she take your pressure, they begin to vomit all over you.
No one wants to attend the Hospital sick, and the Leadership of the hospital is sick! It’s the same in the Body of Christ, if you struggle with sexual perversion; you want to be under a Ministry where the Leadership has been delivered from that sin, and not under a Leadership that is still active in that same sin. The Church is for sick folk, but Leadership is not. The Book is a 7 Chapter, 144 page book, and features Chapters such as: A Rapped Church, Revived to Do What? Pimps and Prostitutes of the Pulpit and more…….. This Book is now available at @ www.createspace.com/3394325 for the price of $18.00. It is a Must Read & Nation Shaker!
Thank you in advance and May God bless you

Before U were thought of or time had begun,
God stuck U in the name of His Son.
And each time U pray, you'll see it's true,
You can't spell out JesUs and not include U.
You're a pretty big part of His wonderful name,
For U, He was born; that's why He came.
And His great love for U is the reason He died.
It even takes U to spell crUcified.
Isn't it thrilling and splendidly grand
He rose from the dead, with U in His plan?
The stones split away, the gold trUmpet blew,
And this word resUrrection is spelled with a U.
When JesUs left earth at His Upward ascension,
He felt there was one thing He just had to mention.
'Go into the world and tell them it's trUe
That I love them all - Just like I love U.
So many great people are spelled with a U,
Don't they have a right to know JesUs too?
It all depends now on what U will do,
He'd like them to know,
But it all starts with U.
