Retah McPherson and her family were involved in a near-fatal motorcar accident in 2004. Her eldest son, Aldo, was the only person who did not walk away from the accident scene. He sustained serious brain injuries due to the impact of the collision and was in a coma for months following the accident. During that time Aldo had a supernatural experience where he went to heaven, saw God, the angels, Moses and Abraham.
Aldo came back with one message: “Mommy, I need to tell the world that Jesus is alive!”
In obedience to this call to tell the world that Jesus is alive and that His bride has to ready herself for the Bridegroom, Aldo and Retah wrote a book titled, A Message from God. Since then they have also released their follow-up book A Message of Faith and in 2011, A Message of Hope.
Retah is a Christian Public Speaker and travels around the world proclaiming the coming of the King of kings. The office is situated in Stellenbosch, South Africa.
“I’ve always confessed that I’m a Christian. I’ve always known God. I believed in the Holy Trinity and even served God. Yet, when I look back now I realize that I was merely living a good life filled with good deeds. I didn’t really know God’s character and I had no idea what it meant to be completely sold out to Him – which is the only sacrifice that is ever acceptable In His sight. I had to live through a terrible tragedy and huge suffering, before I was finally willing to sacrifice everything, including my son to God. Only after all that, did I hand over control of my life to Him and did I get to know Him personally.
All this pain was so unnecessary! Jesus had already paid the price in full. After I had given my life to Him as a living sacrifice, I could get in line with God’s perfect plan for my life – to live in a love relationship with the living God!
Only then could I say that it didn’t matter whether I lived or died, as long as I glorified God.
For a long time I thought it was my husband’s responsibility to make me happy, but the truth is no human being can make you completely happy. Only Jesus can do that for you. He is the ANSWER to all questions; the SOLUTION to all your problems, the FULFILMENT of all your needs and desires. He is ALL things to ALL men! I tried to quench my thirst with all sorts of things like perfectionism, fame, wealth and achievement. But, now that the fire of the Holy Spirit has purified me from the inside out, I know Jesus is the fountain of living water. He is the only One who can quench my thirst forever."

He has awakened my Spirit to Him and I’ve come to know Him as a Holy God who wants my life, not only my heart. When Aldo was in a coma, he had a supernatural experience where he went to heaven, saw God, the angels, Moses and Abraham. Aldo came back with one message: “Jesus is alive!”
The bride has to ready herself for the Bridegroom is coming back for her. I pray that the Holy Spirit will touch everyone who reads this book; that their spiritual eyes will be opened and that those who seek it will find the abundant life that God wants for all His children.”
A MESSAGE OF HOPE
A Message of Hope is the third book of a series wherein Aldo and Retah testify of the road of faith and hope their family has been walking on since the motorcar accident in 2004. Aldo still writes letters inspired by the Holy Spirit (or Wisdom, as Aldo calls Him) about heaven and hell, angels and demons, and the spiritual battle that is raging in the heavenly realm.
In Retah’s own words taken from the preface of their latest book, you will be inspired to seek the deeper things of God and to walk in the truth of His Kingdom reality:
“It is six years since our accident and only now has Abba lifted the dark veil from my eyes that had blinded me.
“Although I was in full-time ministry and I served the Lord with all of my heart, all of my mind and all of my soul, we weren’t experiencing breakthroughs in our physical circumstances with Aldo. It was as if we were caught up in a grip that only became stronger and stronger as we felt death’s tentacles draw tighter around us. The spirit of “death and destruction” had a hold on us and we didn’t realize it.
“I cried at the Lord’s feet and asked, “Lord, how can I minister to people and help them while the spiritual battle in my own home is becoming worse and worse?” After many nights of calling out to God, He led us through His Spirit to the book of Nehemiah. Through it the Lord made me see that the walls of our souls were broken down and destroyed, just like the walls of Jerusalem.
“As the veil started to lift from our eyes, we began to understand what the root of the evil was. It was a road towards healing that first got worse before we experienced any breakthroughs. However, we developed patience, humility and longsuffering as we walked this painful road to its end.
Introduction to the book: A MESSAGE OF FAITH
“After a motor vehicle accident, a heavenly experience, and a miracle changed our lives irrevocably in 2004, I have come to deeply appreciate that every breath and each new day is GRACE from God.
“Aldo, my eldest son, suffered severe brain injuries after our car collided with a stationary vehicle on a busy highway. He was in a coma for a few months after the accident, and he spent that time with Jesus on supernatural journeys. He saw heaven, met Moses and Abraham, and played with other children who were with him in heaven. He also saw hell. Today God uses Aldo to bring this message of what he saw in heaven and hell to His bride.
“Our first book (A Message from God) contains a detailed description of our testimony and Aldo’s heavenly experience. Even though I knew Aldo also saw hell, he rarely wanted to talk or write about it. Jesus told Him he had to wait for the right time. That time is now here. Jesus said to him: “Aldo, go and tell My bride – BE PREPARED, I am coming soon.”
The bride needs to recognize the hour in which we live. Jesus is on His way to take a pure and spotless spirit-bride to the wedding banquet that has been prepared. He loves His bride with indescribable passion and doesn’t want anyone to stay behind or to go to hell. Aldo’s descriptions of his supernatural experiences will open your eyes to the reality of heaven and hell and the implications of your choices here on earth.
“Mom, everyone in hell was warned.”
The road of dying to self and living in Christ is what purifies the bride for that great day. It is a road that is walked by faith and not by sight, believing that God is Who He says He is.”
