I just ran across your site after seeing a post on
Usenet. I can't believe Live Forever is available on CD!
Finally! I remember in college, my roommate was the lead
singer of a band at Anderson College in Indiana. I was
exposed to that album because they did the song It's
Alright. One day they played it in a convocation, and at
the appropriate moment, a girl yells out from the
audience: SING IT BROTHER!
The band almost lost it!
My fondest memory of Mylon was during the Sheep in
Wolves Clothing tour (also at Anderson). I had been in
the process of back sliding when they announced tickets
on sale for that show, and I just HAD to see Mylon, so I
bought two tickets. Well, I had sunk pretty low by the
time the concert rolled around, I had almost forgotten
about it in fact, when the day of the show I came across
the tickets(can you say Holy Spirit?). I had nobody to
take, so I asked a female friend of mine to go with me(a
stripper friend of mine actually). Well, to make a long
story short, the altar call comes, and I am under some
HEAVY conviction, so I get up and go to the back of the
auditorium where we were asked to go in answer to the
call. I turn around, and there is my friend following
me, crying her eyes out. I closed my eyes, and prayed:
"God, I cant do this! I am trying to get right with you,
how can I lead her to you??". When I opened my eyes,
there stood Mylon. He just turned to me and said "Son,
God told me you could use a hand here" and he took over
and led my friend to the Lord, while I was getting right
with God myself.
Thanks for the great site, it brought back lots of
Great web site! God bless you! I have often wondered
what happened to Mylon? Now I know! Thank you. I am
glad he is doing well. The last time I saw him was in
Wilmar, Minnesota, in the dead of winter,. on the Big
World tour. I did hear, however that he suffered a
heart attack. The last I heard of him, was his 92
I got born again at a
Mylon Lefevre and Broken Hearts Concert in Findlay
Ohio back in 1985...I then volunteered and helped
them set up for a concert in Mansfield Ohio later
that year I think..I went off to college and hooked
up with a guitar player and we played More for a
college concert at Ohio State Univ. His music not
only changed my life, it drew me into a deeper
relationship with the Lord.. I do wish though that
he and broken heart would do one reunion tour..The
music isn't the same anymore..Or maybe I am just
older, but it seemed that the heart of the Lord was
with the group..The spirit of the Lord moved through
them in a mighty way...Oh yes today I am a minister
for the Lord, still on fire for Christ.
In His Name
Just found your
website today!!! I am a HUGE huge fan of Mylon! Never met him or
have seen him in concert but own almost every "tape" (that's how old
they are) he's made. Friends of mine introduced me to his music in
the 90's. They had a christian rock group named Contender. I connect
with Mylon's music more than any other!! Good to know i am not his
only fan out there...still.
I saw Mylon & Broken Heart down in Florida when
I was sixteen. I was a troubled youth with no
direction in life. I was blown away at their
concert. Not only by the music and incredible stage
show, but also by the powerful preaching Mylon did.
I think at that point in my life I could not relate
to the three piece suit evangelic guys with the
piled up hair dues. Mylon had about 2 feet of hair,
an earring and wild clothes, and yet God was using
him to reach long haired rocker guys like myself and
many others too.
What has always stood out most to me about Mylon is
his heart for the Lord. It seemed very genuine back
then and is still true today.
I wrote a letter to Mylon's ministry web site a
couple years back about a struggle I was having, and
that it was causing me to stumble. Well two days
later I get a phone call and it's Mylon LeFevre on
the phone! He shared a lot of information that
helped me through that struggle and I will always be
grateful for that. Then he asked me to put my wife
on with the speaker phone so that he could pray with
both of us.
Mylon said he gets like a million hits a year on his
web site and yet set aside time to call a complete
stranger who was struggling. That says a lot about
the man, and his heart for Gods children.
Thanks for letting me share some of my story, and
thanks for this great site. I have added it to my
favorites and will let my friends at church know
about it also!
