I didnt become a Christian because I wanted to
escape eternal punishment in hell or to get rewards in
heaven. I realized that I was evil and God is good. I
confessed my evil deeds and asked for Gods mercy.
God not only forgave my trespasses, but he offered me a
job! I was invited to work for him! And that has brought
God promised to take care of my needs, but he has done
much more. He has filled my life to overflowing with
blessings. He gave me a wonderful wife and three lovely
children who also desire to serve God. He has given me
seven grandchildren who love Jesus! And through ministry
I (we) have gained many spiritual children.
God has carried me though many difficult times, but also
allowed me to enjoy life. I have enjoyed Gods
creation to the fullest, and I have enjoyed creative art,
music and inventions of those created in His image. Three
times, I crossed the Atlantic by ship and I have sailed
on many lakes. I have hiked in the majestic Austrian
Alps, driven across America and Europe, and flown over
many lands. Two highlights were visiting biblical sites
in Greece and Turkey. King Solomon didnt have it so
My invitation: Will you join me? There are many ways and
places to serve God. And there is joy in serving Jesus -
