A Minute To Midnite is brings you news, interviews, survival tips, and insights into the world as we watch Biblical Prophecy unfold in the 21st century. We believe in encouraging people to prepare for the End Time events that are ahead – as we watch the signs unfold before us! We who run this site, are bible believing Christians who believe in being proactive in waking people up, spreading the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ, and warning people of the evils of The New World Order to those who will listen.
We also strongly desire to see a return to an “Acts Chapter II” type of Christianity.
Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved. Acts 2:47

From the time I can remember being alive I have had a mighty, inherent, fervent love for God. I sought Him out through His creation and saw Him in everything. Being taught at a very early age to pray, it was very natural for me and found myself always speaking to Him all day and in the night hours. I can say, talking to Him was like breathing air. By the time I was 13 years old,
I had believed and received Jesus Christ as my Messiah and I knew I had to have all I could of Him.
Immediately, I began having intense dreams and visions that would always come to pass. I saw things happening in the Middle East as my first round draft into these gifts. God began to draw back the curtain into the spiritual world in dreams and visions to teach me how to pray. To see exactly where to aim and shoot the Lord’s arrows and not miss as well as the use of the sword. However, as they intensified, I begged God to make them stop. The more I prayed, the more they occurred. I arrived at a moment where I realized that it was time to accept what He was doing in my life and I said yes to the Lord. I bowed my knee and told Him that If that is what He wanted for me, than His will be done. He gave me two years off from having anymore dreams and visions.
Time marched on and on, and I got married and had two sons. From my conversion to Christianity that intensity never departed from me, but only grew hotter. I read His word every day, and never missed a day to “rise up a great while before the day and to go out into a solitary place and there pray.” Until one day, the Lord interrupted my early morning prayer and I heard His voice in crystal clarity say, “From now on I want you to ask Me to teach you how to pray.” I prayed asking Him only those words, and after two weeks, one early morning, it was as if a waterfall from heaven opened up and power poured down upon me for hours. I have never been the same.
That intensity only increased along with more sharpness, exactness and authority. The dreams and visions returned in greater force. For six long years I as inducted into the School of the Holy Spirit where I was taught things only He could teach me. After three of those years, I was called into war, and “to fight the good fight of faith.” It has been forty plus years now. He has made me a warrior in His Kingdom of the Living God, through heavy fighting for decades, and in the field of His training. The intensity continues to grow and get even hotter. I have make one single verse in the Bible my life verse: “Let the fire ever be burning upon the altar. Never let it go out.” Leviticus 6:13 (KJV). I plan to never let it go out as long as I live on His earth and “world without end.“
I am very happily married to Jonathan Stahl my best friend and have three beautiful sons, whom I refer to as “the Sons of Zion,” Derek, Luke and Austin.
My name is Brook Ardoin. Foremost, I am a lover of the Messiah since He found me at age 18. I was raised Catholic and attended a private Catholic school. Starting a new beginning at a Full Gospel Church felt like Christmas morning! Immediately upon salvation, I was mentored in prayer and intercession, and in how to use the Word as our SWORD! I also have a rich desire in Worship of the Lord. (Ps. 100:4).
I have spent time on the missionary field in Russia and South America. The experience was one of the greatest gifts ever given by the Lord. I have been in leadership positions for years in my old church in dance ministry, as well as teaching dance at my church’s affiliated private Christian school. During my church years, there is nothing I did not want to do for the Lord. This included Sunday School and nursery volunteer, church productions, intercessory prayer team, youth volunteer, even down to cleaning the church monthly… including TOILETS! I feel humility is one of the greatest characteristics in being a follower of Christ. (Phil. 2:3).
As an early teen, I was big into rock music, which led to opening a door to the occult and the realm of the demonic. Through this, the Lord taught me how to truly WAR against the power of the enemy. It also gave me a love and compassion to help free others. Time in prayer is like breathing. The more time spent with Him, the deeper He will take us into areas one never dreams possible on earth. (1 Chron. 16:11).
I was born and remain in a very small town in Louisiana. I am what you would call a genuine “Cajun” gal (note the very thick flat accent in our shows)! I have 3 beautiful children. My youngest, now 15, was completely healed of an “incurable” progressive illness at age 4. The diagnosis was removed from her medical records forever! Praise His mighty name! Those 2 years are what gave me my knowledge of faith put into action, and has ever changed my life. This gave me a passion in miracles for others, and I know firsthand that NOTHING is impossible for them that stand and believe His Word. (Matt. 19:26).
I presently work with AMTM in editing for our website, writing articles, and as administrator of our Facebook group. I have put aside my 20-year Nursing career to work full time for the Lord with AMTM. This work is a great treasure given me by my God. My vision is for none to perish, but ALL come to eternal life through salvation. I long for others to know the Jesus I know. I am also passionate in helping other Believers get free from the chains of the enemy!! God Bless you richly and deeply. Let us continue to rise not matter how many times we may fall. Let us press forth for the prize in Jesus the Christ! Amen & Amen. (1 Cor. 9:24).
In His Service,
I decided to make a commitment to Jesus Christ at 19 or 20 years of age. I have basically walked that out ever since; though at times that walk has not been near as true and steady as it should have been. Many mistakes later, I am still here convinced that there is no other life worth living, than one that has Jesus at the center.
A dedicated musician and audio engineer with a passion for all things related to sound and music, with a desire to see these things used for the Kingdom Of God, I have given years to this pursuit and to improving my skills in these areas. Having worked as a tech in the audio side of television, music, voice over, sound effects, sound for video, and all manner of other audio recording, mixing and mastering projects; I began to apply my knowledge of these to the creating of the A Minute To Midnite show in 2015.
All the music used in every AMTM Show has been written, played and recorded by me. I love being able to combine my gifts as a composer, musician and sound engineer, with the desire to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ, along with a message of warning people to prepare for the End Time Events that are unfolding before us.
My interest in End Times goes back a long way. I have always believed that at some point in time, it would be into this area that God would call me to some sort of ministry. I never felt the time was right until December 2013 when I had a stirring that we were getting close. I never believed any of the doomsday timelines in the 1980’s, y2k, 2005, 2012 etc, but then in January 2014 I woke up one morning and immediately the thought came clearly to me “this is it we are really here this time. Begin warning people.” Which I then began to do. The A Minute To Midnite show has become a great platform for doing this. AMTM has pretty much become my full time occupation in recent months.

(Bio to come)
I was born in New Zealand and am a Kiwi through and through. I love my country and having travelled to a number of other parts of the world over my years I have come to appreciate how blessed I am living where I do. I was raised in a mainstream church but became disillusioned with this as a pre-teen, and quietly laid down a challenge to God that if this was all he had to offer I was better off without him. Within a couple of years he put someone firmly in my path. This person taught me his Word and the need for a personal relationship with his Son the Lord Jesus Christ. I was immediately interested in bible prophecy and have been ever since. After God quietly revealed himself to me one night, (yep no fire works or dramatic altar calls happened here) I had a deep sense of God being alive and real and that he was my Father in Heaven. As a result of this I started to express what had happened to me to friends and family and was very thoroughly “stomped on” by family. See my article “Time Capsule” to give a little more info on this.
After this I struggled to maintain a good relationship with God for a very long time but never ever lost my knowledge of Him or the awareness that He was there and loved me. It’s very hard to run away from God when he has his hand firmly gripping your collar. I maintained contact with Christians and the Church over this time but made lots of very unwise decisions. In all of this I was always aware of God’s prophetic word and recognised the signs that would be there prior to the close of this age. Around 4 to 5 years ago the Holy Spirit firmly but gently reminded me that time was short and gave me a good spiritual kick in the pants. Matthew Chapter 24 was jumping out of the news headlines on an almost daily basis. The Holy Spirit lead me use the internet and go on a crash course of learning. It was always at the back of my mind that I wanted to be able to contribute in a meaningful way to further God’s will on Earth and asked him to show me how I could do that. I was lead to contact the original two founding members of “Aminutetomidnte” as they were Kiwi boys. I had no idea where they lived in New Zealand and I told them where I lived. It turned out that they both lived within a few kilometers of me, (so how much is God in that). Tony eventually asked me to do some writing as this is an area that I can do well in, and also got dragged kicking and screaming to the microphone (I am normally quiet and introverted in nature) while Chris ran off to attend to some other matters.
I have an interest in bible prophecy and more specifically the biblical archeology associated with the nephilim of Genesis 6 and theories of possible nephilim/rephaim migration to other parts of the world when they fled the sword of Joshua and the Israelites. I attended a conference in the USA last year to look at pre First Nations people cultures in the Ohio valley area. From this conference I met some awesome Christian folk that I still maintain contact with. I also have an interest in personality disorder and the impact that it has on individuals and their families. I am currently researching and exploring the spiritual roots and impact of these disorders from a biblical perspective and how God may work with those afflicted with and affected by these debilitating disorders. Through the “Aminutetomidnite” Team I have a desire to get the truth of Gods Word out and assist people to understand the times we live in. You also may have figured that I have some interest in preparedness also. Thank you for taking the time to read this and may God bless you through the work being done here at “Aminutetomidnite”.
In June 2015 my friend Chris who had noted that “no one much” in New Zealand seemed to be performing a watchman role on the internet, suggested to me (Tony) that the two of us should start a podcast to warn people about a coming global financial collapse, and to encourage them to prepare spiritually, and also to make physical preparations for what lies ahead. The two of us had already spent many hours discussing the fact that the church as a whole has not been addressing the pressing global, issues, and had been lamenting the spiritual decline that is so prevalent by and large in Western Christianity. Both of us had already been warning people of what lies ahead, and trying to wake them up for a considerable period of time before embarking on this endeavour to launch a podcast. After praying about it and seeking God for direction, we decided to do the first A Minute to Midnite show, which we published on July 1st 2015.
The first dozen shows we did went pretty well generally, but I was feeling a bit discouraged by the amount of work it took to make the shows, versus the size of the audience, and was ready to quit doing them after Episode 12 which only had about 300 views on youtube at the time. I was thinking it wasn’t worth the effort if no one was listening. I told my friend Brook in the USA I was thinking of stopping doing the show. She gave me a right telling off when I said I was going to quit, basically saying that the videos were being watched by those that needed to hear them, and it didn’t matter if it was only 300 people. It was 300 people whom God wanted to hear them! So Brook encouraged me to keep going. Which I did (with Chris’s obvious help and input too).
Interestingly Episode 13 which followed that, brought Carolyn Hamlett onto the show, and the number of viewers exploded. We haven’t looked back since! So thank you Brook for encouraging me to keep going! A few episodes later we got Joanie Stahl on the show as a guest. Joanie just fitted our vision so closely that she then became an important part of our daily lives. It wasn’t too long after that that we decided that a Minute to Midnite should be a team effort (or maybe more like it God turned us into a team). Matt who had been one of our followers from the first show, and who also lives in New Zealand (not far from Chris and I) joined us, and Brook and Joanie who both live in America became integral parts of the A Minute To Midnite team.
Since the very first show, it has been me (Tony) who has written, played and recorded all the music that appears in each show. I also record and edit the videos and audio, and I run and maintain the website and youtube channel.
It was in February 2016 that we launched the current www.aminutetomidnite.com website. Up till then we only had a splash screen website.
Joanie answers a large part of the emails, as well as writing many of the articles on the site, (and speaks wonderfully on some of the shows), Matt and Chris come on the show regularly, and also give input into the episodes etc. Matt also contributes some great written articles for the site. Brook writes articles for us, and is currently building us a Facebook page (which she will manage), and together we all encourage one another and keep each other accountable somewhat for what goes on in the team, and everyone contributes in a great spirit. I guess I am the defacto team leader, and I am so grateful for the great unity among us.
So here we are now heading towards mid 2016, and A minute To Midnite is a strongly united little group that consists of Tony, Matt, Chris ( New Zealand), and Joanie and Brook (USA)
I pray God continues to use us and direct our steps in the days ahead!
