Personal Testimony: “I was raised in a strong Christian home and believed in Jesus when I was 7 or 8 years old and baptized. Later in my teenage-college years, I did not live for the Lord and was a prodigal. At the age of 20 years old I was engaged to a young lady and she broke off the engagement, and it devastated me. That caused me to start reading the Bible and thinking about my relationship with Christ. I prayed for a godly wife and met Rita the following spring as I finished my degree at the University of Nebraska. A young pastor came to our church the next year, and I rededicated my life to Christ and he taught me what it meant to follow Christ. He had me teach the Adult Men’s Sunday school class at our church and that helped me to study the Bible and prepare each week to teach. I have taught a weekly small group men’s Bible study to members of the community for over twenty years. I try to read through the Bible each year and spend adequate time each morning in prayer and Bible study. I am a Gideon and have participated in jail ministry or ministry with the Juvenile Services center for about 40 years. I have participated in 28 foreign mission evangelism projects primarily with International Commission of Dallas, TX. I have chaired our city’s annual Community Prayer Breakfast for the past five years.”
