  1. This man is an inspiration to the sick and wounded warriors. We hold so dear I pray that he continues to praise our service to the Lord and bless you as well.

  2. Dave, I was with II Field Force-RVN-‘68-‘69, I arrived in the country on Nov 12, ‘68. I too was drafted and had no idea what unit I would be assigned. I was with 2nd Bn 35th Arty. Svc Btry. on Long Binh Post. We hauled 155MM ammo out of Long Binh ammo depot to our 3 firebases by 5-ton truck and/or airlifted by Chinook during heavy enemy activity. I’m thankful Dave I made it 12 months over there uninjured, that is almost a miracle in itself. I watched your service today on Jimmy Swaggart, it’s always touching to hear about your injuries, brought back many memories, we pray daily for all our veterans, especially those that have been injured and/or suffering from PTSD.

    Take care of yourself, Dave, you have an awesome message for our veterans. God Bless you and your work in Christ.

  3. Does Dave Roever still do public speaking and what church is he affiliated with within Ft. Worth, TX?

    Thank you,
    Linda Saxton.

    I’ve seen brother Dave several times on SBN. He is always a great refreshing. As an 80-year-old missionary in Kenya working among the poorest, I understand the great needs of what we call the third world. For millions, the Gospel of Jesus Christ is all they have. God bless you mightily Dave

  5. Was just watching Frances and Friends…my late husband was not in Vietnam but he got burned in a house fire back in 1985 and was burned over 80% of his body. Loved listening to him!

  6. May the peace that only the Lord can give be you’d, Dorothy. Those surgeries are hard on the patient and his family, is all I know. God is faithful every moment. Our love to you!

  7. I just watched Mr. Roever on the Sunday morning Jimmy Swaggart TV Show. AMAZING!! Do you have CDs for those of us who “don’t get out much”? I would love to get several for my family. I would especially like to receive a copy of the talk that aired this morning, August 22, 2021. God Bless You.

  8. I have seen Brother Dave several times on SBN’s Frances & Friends. I just watched him at my Church (11a Sunday’s) on SBN. He is SO inspiring & a GREAT testimony of God’s grace & mercy. Brother Dave is truly a warrior in God’s army & the forgiveness he has shown to Vietnam & now doing God’s work there is a testament to what a true child of God should be. He had me laughing & crying this am at Church & it is always very moving to watch him. I hadn’t heard the story of Rosy before today but our Lord sent Brother Dave an Angel to help him & take away his severe pain. Thank you Brother Dave for inspiring me to do more in the Kingdom of our Lord & also being there for our beloved veterans.

    The way our veterans have been treated is a great injustice to them but Jesus is the way, the truth & the life & if our veterans would receive Him as their Lord & Savior & put all their faith in Him, He is all they need & they will not need anything from this world. We need just look UP to the eastern sky as the trumpet of God is about to sound & we will finally be taken out of this world to live with our beloved Savior, Jesus Christ, forever where there is no pain, no sorrow, no tears, no loss, no sadness & no devil/evil/temptation; only joy, peace, love & justice when our King is on the Throne!

    My sincere condolences to Brother Dave on the loss of his wonderful wife Brenda, but you know exactly where she is & you will see her again very soon.

    Warmest regards & love,
    Brother Dave from Jeanne & Jay in Dawsonville, Georgia.

  9. Today I watched Dave on SBN with Jimmy Swaggarts. This man is such an inspiration. God has surely blessed him with an amazing message of hope and encouragment. God bless you Brother Dave. Looking forward to meeting you in heaven.

  10. Dorothy Brown - Heaton

    I just watched the Swagger show. My heart was touched. My husband was a Vietnam in 1965-66. Right now he is on a ventilator. He needs a miracle from God to live. His body is in shock from a surgery that he had 3 days ago. Please pray!

    God Bless.
