The Happiest People On Earth

In 1980 I found myself being transferred to a small town in Oklahoma. Coming from the South, Enid was a town I had never heard of. God had a plan in store for my life I could have never dreamed of. After attending my first meeting of the Full Gospel Business Men’s Fellowship Chapter, someone gave me a book about the founder, Demos Shakarian. I was elected President of the Enid, OK Chapter and had many wonderful experiences. Reading “The Happiest People on Earth” and being involved in FGBMFI back then totally changed my life!

This great book is “timeless” and brings a picture of what is to come, which is the “greatest revival known to mankind.” This will be an outpouring of the Holy Spirit of such magnitude that the world has ever seen. This book has been out of print for over twenty years. Having a huge desire to see it available for the newer generations, I spoke to Richard Shakarian and several other leaders of the FGBMFI. We were all in agreement the book needed to be reprinted. God worked in each step of the way. The vision God gave to Demos is still very much alive today. I believe this book holds one of the keys to reigniting the fire of Pentecost. With this personal fire in each one of our hearts we can become the “fire starters” to bring about the great harvest of souls during these last days before Jesus comes back.

Our hope and prayers are that when you read this book you also, through the power of the Holy Spirit, be changed into one of the “Happiest People on Earth.”

The republishing of a classic true story of Demos Shakarian who was given a vision to start the Full Gospel Business Men’s Fellowship International (FGBMFI). This is the fellowship that would be used to change the Church World in the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s. The same inspired vision will be used to empower this generation.

FGBMFI proudly proclaims that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever. Signs and wonders still can happen today through every Christian who is called to the ministry of reconciliation.

The Happiest People on Earth shows the reader how to trust the Holy Spirit to empower ordinary people to do mighty exploits for the Kingdom of God. This uplifting story of Demos Shakarian and his family is an exciting testimony packed full of faith-building examples of how God still leads today, complete with miracle healing, divine “coincidences” and interventions.
