Special message from Yankee with tentative Summer Schedule

 Special message from Yankee Arnold

Dear Friend of Yankee Arnold Ministries,

I would like to take this opportunity to offer my sincere thanks to all those who prayed for my recovery from my recent bout with Covid. I was in VA Hospital ICU for about three weeks. It is truly only because of all your prayers and the outstanding medical staff who helped me that I can continue the Lord’s work.  It seems the Lord isn’t done with me yet and I believe all of you who petitioned Heaven on my behalf is one of the reasons why.  I don’t know exactly how prayer works, only that it availeth much and this miraculous recovery of mine is proof of that.

I’m well on my way towards full recovery.  Even in my darkest hour when it was far from certain that I would live, it was comforting to know that so many of you were beseeching God on my behalf. Thank-you also one and all for your continued financial support of my ministry. 

Yankee Arnold Radio Broadcast is heard every weekday on WTBN at 6pm on 570AM and 910AM here in Tampa. I have been on KLTT for over 12 years in Denver, Colo. every weekday, I could not have done so without your faithful monthly financial support.

My staff consist of Greg Bizzell who does all the editing for the radio broadcasts and posting them on Podcast. Louie Hernandez edits and posts my video messages on my YouTube Channel. He also handles mailing and bookkeeping for Yankee Arnold Ministries.

I would say that 95% of my messages are Gospel Driven. I simply don’t want people to go to Hell. Many have trusted the Lord from listening to the audio and video broadcasts. You are a part of this vital ministry. On behalf of the Lord Jesus Christ, I thank you for helping to bring the gospel to the world through our internet ministry.

Yankee - "My fight with Covid"

 Yankee - "My fight with Covid"

My first several days was a fight for life

I thought Covid was something that could happened to everyone but me. The first week of January changed everything for me. My oxygen levels fell into the lower 70's, I quickly found I couldn't breathe. Betty called for the ambulance to take me to the emergency room at the VA Hospital. 

They informed me that I may have to go on the ventilator, to which I said, "If it looks like I must, just send me home to die with my wife." My decision is not to recommend what others should or should not do. No, I have not taken the vaccine. Be careful in justifying or condemning those who disagree with your choices. My wife got Covid the same time and I did not know how bad she was doing. The same was to apply if I had a heart attack. No resuscitation.  I knew that if I go, or if I stay, I am a winner either way. I know that I have Eternal Life and can rest in God's choice either way. What peace!

Phip 1:20  According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death.
Phip 1:21  For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.

Mel Quin, Greg Stier, Jim Scudder, Tom Cucuzza, Betty and Eddie Arnold, Louie Hernandez and a thousand others lit up FaceBook pleas to pray for Yankee. I prayed to the Lord, "Lord, I don't need more time, unless you can use me." I believe that the Lord has blessed me because of all the fervent prayers of so many righteous saints. I was in ICU for about 13 days and Rehab for 9 days. 

While I was struggling here in Tampa, I was informed that my brother, "Little Man", (Merle Arnold) also came down with Covid19. He came home from the hospital to hospice care at home. It looks like he will be with the Lord in several days. Pray for his wife Cheryl and daughter, Michelle in Athens, Georgia.

Thank you! Thank you! For all the prayers for me and my brother.

After several weeks I was allowed to go to Rehab at the VA. The VA has been very good to me. The Doctors and nurses were outstanding. There were about 12-15 that trusted the Lord from those in ICU, MICU, and REHAB. In every room, I told them that I would do everything they said, but I requested they only do one thing. That was for them to please visit my website and watch my 4 minute video on how to go to Heaven. They did!

Progress was hard work.


When they told me to walk so far down the hall, I asked to walk further. When I was told to work the machine I am sitting in for 15 minutes, I asked to do it for 30. When they told me to do it the next day for 30 minutes, I asked to do it for 45. 

They were surprised when last Friday, when I was to be discharged, I was informed that I would not need oxygen tanks to go home. The picture shows me leaving without oxygen.

I MET SUSAN in rehab. The day I walked into the dining room, this new lady came in to eat. It was just her and I. I asked her if she knew she had Eternal Life and would go to Heaven. I was surprised when she gave me all the right answers. 

The next night I found that she had trusted the Lord from my radio ministry in Tampa. I am on every weekday at 6pm on 910AM and 570AM. When I ask for financial support for the radio ministry, it's for all those Susans out there. Would you pray for souls like Susan by helping to support the radio ministry. There are many preachers on radio, but few make the gospel clear.

While Betty was having to face all the things going on, she was overcoming the Covid herself. My daughter, Trina was having issues of her own and couldn't come down. My son, Eddie, made two trips from Georgia to be with his mom. He was there to assist Betty in helping me get adjusted to some new home conditions.


I never knew the sun could feel so good, even with a little nip in the air. They say I won't be doing too much for a couple months. I hope you don't mind if I just lay around for a while. I did lose about 15 lbs. Please continue to pray for continued healing and for Yankee Arnold Ministries to continue the radio ministry.

I do not beg for funds, but I do believe you should know that if you invest for the sake of the lost, there will be fruit in your account.

An update on Mels Carbonell.

 An update on Mels Carbonell. Hal Haller informed me that he visited with Mels at an assisted living facility in Ellijay, Georgia. While Betty and I went to visit our kids and grand-kids in Athens area, I decided to drive to Ellijay to visit with Mels.

We have been friends for over 56 years. We met at Boca Raton, Florida Youth Camp and then as students at Florida Bible College.

As I walked into the dining room area, I saw Mels sitting with three other men. As soon as he turned to see who came into the room, He immediately called out my name, “Yankee”, stood and walked over to give me a big bear hug. I knew there was a possibility that he may not recognize me, but I was grateful that he did.

Mels looked great, sounded upbeat and was very happy someone came to see him. There were some simple things Mels could not answer for me, but we both talked about many things we did in the past about the Lord’s work. He recalled them well.

Mels was a soul-winner, and his life was about reaching the lost through every means available. He had the largest one-year anniversary with over 1,500 in attendance. Mels was a motivator who truly loved the Lord. Mels conducted the West Coast Youth Ranch where 1,000’s trusted the Lord and 100’s attended the Florida Bible College.

Before I stood up from the table to leave, I grabbed his hand and prayed for him. When I said amen, he grabbed my hand with both hands and then he prayed for me to keep winning souls. Some things may have slipped his mind, but he remembers the main things.

If you would like to send him a card, I’m sure he would love to hear from you even though he may not remember you. Do not expect a response.

85 Highland Ridge Road Ellijay, GA 30540

Lest than a mile down the road, I had to pull over and have a little time with the Lord. Mels had a great place to spend his remaining days, good food, and great care. I was so glad, but at the same time, I was so sad to see the path that many of God’s saints may have to take. Then I looked a little further down the road and saw the end where we will all win. Sin is ugly, but the grace and goodness of God is beautiful.


It won’t be long now, so keep looking up!

The Judge of the Divine Court of Justice Rules against Abortion


The only thing God has to produce a man, or a woman is from a little child. Little children come from being born.

Mat 18:6  But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. 

Mat 18:14  Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish. 

Mat_19:14  But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.

Mar_10:14  But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.

Luk_18:16  But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.

To purposefully kill little babies is willingly taking away the life and purpose of those whom Christ loves.

I pray that you will not enjoy this sermon on where the Judge of the Divine Court of Justice stands. If you dislike it, please share it so others will feel the same way.
