It was great to see my youth pastor/mentor of 35 years ago on a news program early this morning and I just had to post a blog about him.
In the summer of 1975 in a mid western church a hand touched my soldier and a guy by the name of Pastor Bill knelt down to pray with me. He knew I needed a lot of change in my life a long with my praying parents and family.
1975 inner city outreach. (Anita Norman, Lisa Letterman, myself and Yogi)
For a few years, I was able to hang with Bill and a few others at all hours of the night and travel on a couple of west cost adventure ministry trips with Bill that opened up my mind to another world that I never knew existed.
Anyway the 30 years have come and gone and this morning as I was getting ready for another normal day, I looked up at the screen for the morning news and there he was being interviewed by a news anchor.
God bless you Bill as you continue to educate, motivate and sometimes irritate all of us. You do exactly what God purposed you to do.
Here are a couple of links Bills web site.
That same hand now has become a far reaching compassionate hand that touches who knows how many.
