    Hi! I watched Year of the Beast last night and recognized Jerry Houser. I wondered if he was a Christian..so started googling. And here he is!! I read about Jerry introducing “Marcia” to church where she met her husband. So neat to hear these recent interviews with Jerry. God bless!! Thank you for taking Maureen to church, wonderful story. Enjoyed the movie too, it was a fantastic take on the tribulation. Thanks Jerry.
