Pastor Doug Batchelor, president of Amazing Facts, has travelled all around the globe sharing the good news and the three angels' messages — from Korea, India, the Philippines, to Australia, Colombia, and New York City — which is remarkable considering that at one point he was living in a cave as a hermit!
As the teenage son of a millionaire father and a show business mother, he had everything money could buy — everything but happiness. He used drugs, fought at school, and rebelled against all authority. Disgusted with this life and convinced it had no purpose, Doug was determined to grab all the fun and excitement he could find no matter the consequences.
So even though his father owned a yacht, a Learjet, and an entire airline, Doug eventually found himself scavenging for food in garbage bins. The happiness and peace he so longed for continued to elude him year after year … until …
One day he found and began to read a dust-covered Bible that a fellow “searcher” had left in his cave in the hills high above Palm Springs. And what happened next can only be described as a miracle!
A Modern-day Miracle
