In 1962, a restless and aimless young man had a brush with God and recognized that God had called him to the ministry. He followed that call even when it looked like he had crawled out on a limb and sawed it off. This led to a very unique and special ministry which he could have never imagined. His ministry impacted thousands of lives in over sixty years of serving the Lord.
