Restoring Miracle Valley to its former glory latest goal of family’s ministry

Gallery Image

PALOMINAS — There was a time when thousands of people gathered to witness the Holy Spirit and prayed for a miracle.

There was a time when gunfire rang out and three people lay dead after a violent battle.

Ask anyone in Southeast Arizona and there is a good chance they will know something about Miracle Valley and its history. Sometimes that history is whispered; left unfinished and related with sour glances rather than words. Others recall the early days of the property, when A.A. Allen accepted the donation of 1,280 acres of land from local resident Urbane Leiendecker, and started a revival ministry that touched thousands all over the world.

   Theses three are truly the voice of GOD!! Just go to their web-site & and watch their 2 inspiring videos…  Like Lazarus, A.A. Allen is alive again !!!  And rolling over in his grave!  And to think… for only $1,000.00 you too can get a user name & password to their holy website to find everlasting life with GOD !!   I myself know this is true because  this man tells me (in his videos) that he speaks w/GOD…And if one of the faithful have $10,000,000.00 (million) dollars He can restore Miricle Valley to it’s former glory and more then likely stop "The end of times".  Praise be……

Title: A SCAM??

 The article states: "At the instruction of others, the Langevins have been told not to provide specifics on the acquisition of the property."

Why then on their Facebook page do they state they purchased this property for $600,000.????

Are they trying to hide something?

Title: Hmmm. . .

Yeah, I wondered about that too.  If it was purchased from the State it should all be public record, and it’s still public record at the Assessor’s Office where the deed would have been registered.  Maybe the Herald will look into that …

I would be suspect of anyone who think 1,280 is one square mile as is stated on their history tab on their web page.  Last time I checked 640 acres is a square mile, they should just copy the information on if they want the correct story.

The Cochise County Registar’s Office has no record of this guy buying anything either as his last name, or as Miracle Valley Arizona Ministries.

Title: Ummmm......

 if you consider him as an employer, employing over 175 while he was there…..


if you consider upwards of an annual "income" of 2 million dollars (more than 6 million in today’s economy)…..


And last but certainly not least, he was directly responsible for "ordaining" Frances Thomas, who along with HER followers, came to Miracle Valley and was directly responsible for the DEATH of Cochise County Sheriff’s Deputy Jeffrey Brown…..

Is that really your criteria for stating he was a wonderful man??

 not enough answers!

KGUN 9 News did a "report" last nite, but if you ask me, it was more of a non-paid commercial for these people.

On there facebook page they are "requesting" donations to EXTEND the "closing date" on this property.

According to this article, the State of Arizona has "signed off" as the owners……


 Are these people squatting on this land?

 Too many questions, not enough answers!
