A Curious Adventure into Unexpected Places
Posted now at in the bio section of the website is the homepage for the latest project sparked by a commitment to present the story of ministry over my life from 1941 through 2017. I've entitled it LIFE JOURNEY IN MINISTRY. The project, when completed, will present my life story in a) video clips (3 parts of about 10 minutes each); b) Power Point Presentation format (14 slides); c) PDF file containing sound clips and narrative texts; and d) PDF file containing only narrative texts. The two pdf files also contain the Adobe 'sticky notes' which explain several of the pictures in the slides.
God has done countless unexpected things in the over half century of Gospel ministry both in the US and outside it in Europe and Central America. Virtually none of them could I have even imagined as a youngster growing up in rural west Texas. 
My hope is that this story provides readers with encouragement and inspiration to just turn loose and let God take you wherever He chooses. You will never regret giving him control over your life.
