Rev. Bernabé G. García's Vision For the Future of The Voice of Restoration, Inc.
Part 2 of 24Nov2012 report
Rev. Bernabe G. Garcia’s vision for the future of The Voice of Restoration, Inc.
Over the last few weeks, as dad’s mind has cleared, and we have been able to update him a little on the happenings of the last few months, Dad began to get more adamant with me on what he wanted me to do with my life in conjunction with his ministry. When I explained to him that certain events were taking place that made it appear that I was no longer in his program he was very agitated and repeatedly told me that NEVER had he intended to do anything to remove me from representing him in any way. Joseph and I explained to him that it did appear that way and in particular the letter that had been read in Mazatlan.
After Dad chewed on that information for a few days, he began to insist to my brother Joseph that he wanted me to take over his missionary work. Last Wednesday, when I walked into the hospital room, I heard him telling Joseph to make sure he told me. Joseph saw me, and said “Dad, here is Bernie, you tell him.” Dad told me that he wanted me to take over his work for him in the field. I explained to my father that there would be a lot of people unhappy with that decision. Dad replied, “I don’t care if they are happy about it or not, it is what I want.” Dad then asked me to put it in writing and that he would sign it. We then discussed several options, and dad said, “Son, do whatever you have to do to make it happen.”
By the end of that conversation, Dad had agreed to several key changes in the way we conduct our missionary work in Latin America. This was at least the third time that he insisted he wanted me to help him with his work. I left, telling him I would return the next day with what he had asked for in writing. I returned Thursday (Thanksgiving day) with a Thanksgiving Proclamation from Bernabe G. Garcia in writing. I read it to him once and asked if that is what he wanted. He said “Yes!” I asked him if he was sure, and he said “Absolutely I am sure.”
I then re-read it to him with my Brother Joseph listening as a witness. As I read it, I paused and re-read certain key elements to make sure that he understood what was being read, and to see if that was in accordance with his desires. Dad insisted that it was exactly what he wanted, and that he was sure. He then signed the proclamation, and five other documents that were needed to carry out his wishes.
The following day on Friday, I returned again, and reread him the documents to make sure that he remembered them and that he was still in agreement with them. He again insisted that he was. Later in the day Joseph asked him about the documents and again asked dad if he remembered them and if he was sure about his wishes. Dad again declared to him that he did understand, and told Joseph what he understood. Joseph then asked him, “What if people don’t like it?” Dad replied, “It is not my problem if they do not like it.” Joseph then conveyed this information to me when I stopped by to talk with my dad in between services Friday afternoon. Finally, being absolutely sure that this was what my father wished, I left the hospital to do everything that needed to be done to accomplish his desires.
I would like to emphasize that the reason my father decided to pursue what may seem to be a radical and drastic course of action is that he wanted there to be NO MISTAKING the intention of his desires and will for the direction of his ministry The Voice of Restoration, Inc. He was shaken by the realization that he had come so close to death, and that events that were taking place would have reached a conclusion that he did not want if he had not survived Satan’s attack against his health. He wants to put in place NOW exactly what he wants done when he is gone.
To that end Rev. Bernabé G. García decided to retire from active involvement in The Voice of Restoration, Inc., and resigned as the President of The Voice of Restoration, Inc. (VofR) He will remain on the board of directors of The VofR as the founding director and continue to serve as mentor and advisor.
Rev. Bernabé NC García (aka Bernie NC Garcia Jr) will assume the role of President and C.E.O. of The Voice of Restoration, Inc. Brother García has declared that he completely backs up 100% any decision that Bernabé NC García will make as President of The Voice of Restoration, Inc.
Joseph C. García will assume the role of Secretary and Treasurer of The Voice of Restoration, Inc.
Joseph C. García was asked to join the Board of Directors of VofR and he accepted.
Rev. John Daniel Martin, president of Worldwide Missionary Outreach (WMO) was asked to join the Board of Directors of VofR and he accepted.
Brother Floyd W Patterson, long time believer, one time President of Spoken Word Publications, and hunting companion of Rev. William Marrion Branham was asked to joing the Board of Directors of VofR and he accepted.
Rev. Bernabé G. García and Bernabé NC García both believe that Brother Martin and Brother Patterson’s experience and wisdom will be of great benefit to the missionary efforts of VofR as we endeavor to preserve and promote the missionary work that God Almighty commended into Rev. Bernabé G. García’s hands, and to which we believe the Rev. Bernabé G. García has been faithful to perform.
Brother Eleazar Ruiz gave his verbal resignation as Director, and conveyed Sister Joanna García de Ruiz’s resignation as Secretary and they were sorrowfully accepted. I pray that in the future they will be willing to rejoin VofR in other capacities for they have truly shown their faithfulness through the many long years of faithful unpaid devoted volunteer work. If the world was full of Eleazars and Joannas we would all live in a better world. May God richly bless them as they pursue their current personal and family goals.
There will be more articles and explanation about the goals and future plans of VofR within the next few days, including interviews with the new Directors and officers and a transcription of audio recording of Rev. Bernabé G. García vision for the future of VofR.
God bless you
Rev. Bernabé NC García,
President and C.E.O of The Voice of Restoration, Inc.
