“I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” 

(John 10:10b)




Duane and Iris Blue have been servants (and precious souls) of the Most High God for decades showing multitudes that Jesus Christ will change a life of hopelessness to a life of freedom and abundance. Their testimonies are unique because of their willingness and boldness to let others in similar life situations know that there is an answer to the bondage of sin.  As I write this on Independence Day, I am reminded of what Jesus said in John 8:36. “If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.”  My desire is not to compare my past sins with anyone else, but to lift up the One who set us free from sin, and covered our transgressions with His blood. That is God’s only begotten Son, Jesus Christ.   The Blues, and also for myself, praise God every day for our salvation.

Victory Ministries Middle Tennessee  is a small ministry  whose goal is to help small congregations and ministries with evangelistic materials, encouragement and to help bolster their goal in reaching the lost for Christ.  ( )  Jesus told us all to “preach the gospel to every creature” (Mark 16:15) and that is the desire of all followers of Christ Jesus.  The Blues’ testimonies are powerful and have echoed around the world in their travels to many countries.  As we get older our travel is limited but the Blues have graciously put their resources for all of us on DVDs, books, and other media to share Christ and help to win souls in this wicked world.  Blue also sells beautiful witnessing jewelry to support the ministry.   I personally have shared their testimonies with many and it has touched the lives of those who are in need of the Savior.  Their testimonies have also been an encouragement to many believers who have ceased sharing God’s word.  More like a “shot in the spiritual arm” so to speak.  The Blues obviously have touched my life and my family’s lives.


Denim Blue, who was born in 1987, has become a vital part of the Blue’s ministry. Presently, he is 37 and is a solid believer and servant of God.  He has counseled many believers and non-believers alike. Aside from Jesus, Denim is a core part of the Blue’s ministry.  It is of the utmost importance for Christians to support other’s ministries so with the hopes that those who read this, they will act by supporting their ministry.  The Blues' information is published below.  By calling the numbers listed, you will be able to speak to Duane, Iris, or Denim Blue personally.  Although known all over the world, they want to hear from you individually.  As a supportive ministry and friend, I ask you to support the Blues by donations or purchasing the products they offer which support their mission. That is “telling ‘em about our Jesus.”    God bless all who will do this.

Blue has been a Mission Service Corps Volunteer since 1985.Unable to read, he left school in rebellion and rejection to be on his own. Motorcycles and drug activity consumed his life from age 16 to 21. He insisted on his own way with no regard for others, and verbally and mentally mistreated his mother who was a single parent, until he found her a victim of suicide. Pride and grief caused him to hide from all his feelings of loneliness and guilt and he turned to drugs and games of lies.  A school bus was his home and he traveled, hiding behind a "tough guy" front, when in reality he was very lonely and afraid.  A man witnessed to him and introduced him to his family at Christmas. This was the first Christmas he had spent with others in 12 years. One month later, he turned his lonely life over to Jesus Christ. Jesus turned it into a "Life Abundant."   “I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” (John 10:10b)

 Iris has been a Mission Service Corps volunteer since 1980. She was born and raised in Houston, Texas. She became very rebellious, ran away from home and became involved in drugs and all that garbage that accompanies it. She was arrested as a teenager on armed robbery charges and sentenced to eight years in the Texas Department of Corrections. She had to serve a longer time because of disciplinary responses with a bad attitude and rebellion. One and a half years after her release and more street involvement and women's lib, a young man witnessed to her and she responded to Jesus Christ. She "knelt down a tramp and stood up a lady."
