Many people dream of being used of God to touch people around the world… This life was not a dream for Lonnie Rex; it was reality.
He was the most connected Christian in the world in the second half of the 20th century. He connected with world leaders and the most influential religious individuals on the planet. Among the people in Lonnie’s realm were Oral Roberts, T.L. Osborn, Pope John Paul II, Mother Teresa, Mikhail Gorbachev, President George H.W. Bush, President Ronald Reagan, John Osteen, President Vladimir V. Putin, and Mohammed Ali. This is only a small portion of the total list of people Lonnie has known and worked with around the world.
Lonnie was arrested in Ghana for attempting to overthrow the government when in truth he was bringing a moped to a leper colony. He played James Bond traveling up and down the Nile River and throughout Europe while bringing two C-47 planes full of food for the nation of Armenia. He traveled to North Korea at their invitation, three times! He became friends with the Cardinal of Warsaw who became Pope John Paul II while delivering milk to the children of Poland. Vladimir Putin was his personal KGB agent when he traveled to the Soviet Union at the end of the cold war. He visited refugee camps of Ethiopian Coptic Christians where babies were born too weak to cry. He promised them he would tell their story to the world. He kept his promise. He received the highest honors South Korea could bestow on a non-Korean. He was knighted by the Russian Orthodox Church.
His amazing stories must be watched and heard to be believed. Lonnie L. Rex has led a life that is unbelievable until you know his stories.
“I don’t ask God for money. I only ask God for ideas. But God always funds his ideas.” Lonnie R. Rex

[Editor's Comment: I am sure that many of you who know Lonnie Rex, who have sung in his General Conference and Sunday School Convention Choirs and/or played in his orchestra will want to contact Lonnie. You may know Lonnie by other meetings or occasions. I am honored that he is my friend and has been my friend since 1954 when I was a young Marine at Quantico, VA, and attending the National Pentecostal Holiness Church while Ray Stewart and later Walter J. Nash were the pastors, at different times.
You may call Lonnie on his Cell Phone: 1-281-636-3955. Dr. Floyd Shealy called him on Monday.]
