Happy Birthday Dad!

Today is my dad's birthday! This is when the mission field gets a little difficult. I'd like to be with my dad today to celebrate his birthday with him. I'm just glad my dad is a good christian man who loves the Lord! He knows why we are here, and stands behind us in what we are trying to do for the Lord. We both know that in heaven we will have much time for fellowship as we have all eternity there.

I just want to use this post to say Happy birthday to my dad. I don't tell him enough, but I love him and I'm so thankful for him. He taught me much while I was growing up. I learned how to be a man from him. I must say he is a man, not a sissy. I learned character from him as well. Many times I remember him getting up early to go to work and put food on our table. He worked a hard job as a welder and in Texas that's doubly hard because of the heat. But he always worked, and did not live on welfare.

While I was a teenager, he got right with God and started going to church. What a great decision that was. It wasn't long until the whole family got right with God, and now I'm on the mission field!

Well I thank God for my dad. Happy birthday daddy!

Amen. I am sure that he is very proud of his son. Praise the Lord for the difference that a father makes.
