Today is my Dad's birthday.
He turned 75.
A few months ago, he returned from a trip to China and Japan where he was teaching masters level classes to Bible school students from all over Asia.
Next year he's likely returning to Turkey and definitely going to Egypt to do the same thing.
He does all of this at his own expense because he believes that
equipping God's people to spread His Word is the best way to spend a life.
My Dad has lived 3 quarters of a century. He's old in anybody's book.
He's retired from the Army after more than 20 years service.
He retired from the full time pastoral ministry after nearly 30 years.
He is currently the Dean of Graduate Studies at Global University
and has recently headed up the new doctoral program.
Instead of resting, retiring, he's on his third career.
He believes that you are never too old to serve.
He believes that God uses the willing. And, he's willing.
It's like he wrote in his Bible. See it?
Look up at the top right corner. See?
Right there above Luke chapter 2.
This is so beautiful.
It is, Daddy. It is.
And so is your life.
I love you.
I am proud to be your daughter.
