What The Omega Letter Means to Me
''We both feel blessed ''
Tuesday, October 18, 2011
Uli Kaestner

There are three men who have totally influenced my life: Adolf Hitler, Josef Stalin and Jesus Christ.

Born in Germany, I witnessed as a 12 year old, the bombing of Dresden on Valentines Day in 1945. We lived 40 miles away and I remember all of us cursing God for allowing this misery.

My family faithfully attended church each Sunday, so, I knew God, was baptized and confirmed in the Lutheran Church.

After wars end, we lived under Russian occupation and my father, a PhD (economics), was arrested and died in 1948 in a Russian Concentration Camp.

Being the oldest, I assumed the role of ‘Man-of-the-house’ and occupied my time in providing my family with food; often by stealing.  I continued my attending church, singing in the youth choir and being involved in Christian Youth Groups.

In 1953 I was drafted by the East German Army. A friend and I however decided to leave and escape to the West, via Berlin.  The Wall then consisted of a barbed wire barrier with guards, dogs and bright lights protecting this border.

I now realize how my God has held me safely in His hands.

After serving a four year apprenticeship in Hamburg and having no connection to any Christian activity, I decided to migrate to America and to "check things out in the land of opportunity".

As an Insurance Agent, sitting in my office in 1971, the man on TV pointed the finger at me saying,

“The Lord is not interested in just your head knowledge, but that He is interested in the Whole, your heart and soul.”

Never having been told of salvation and that Christ died for me, this was totally new and something I acknowledged right then and there.

It has been 12 plus years that I am charged to be the caregiver to my wife with Parkinson's. ‘Our church’ is a weekly bible study and for some years now, the daily sharing of the OL with Nancy.

We both feel blessed having this arrangement, loving our Lord and having Jack encourage us in our daily walk.

Blessings to you all, Uli and Nancy Kaestner
