“My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person, he believed in me.” Jim Valvano
This quote expresses the thought behind my ministry. I am thankful for the fact my father believed in me and my ability to share in the ministry. In some ways, he spent his life preparing me for this work.
He laid the foundation in helping me memorize scripture at a very young age. He had me read to him from God’s word each morning before school.
When I decided to go to school to prepare myself to preach, my dad was the first in my corner and one who expressed his confidence in me to accomplish the intensity of the program.
He loved the fact I was following in his footsteps, not because he was involved in ministry, but because nothing is more satisfying than a life of ministry. He would know; he lived it.
Thank you for sharing the brief journey of the week in the relationship shared with my father. He was one great man and an incredible leader.
Thank you dad for helping me get here.
