The Man Who Speaks the Bible

“In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.” – Proverbs 3:6 This is the favored verse of an ex drug addict, alcoholic, hustler, womanizer, liar, cheat, and thief.  It’s amazing how God can use a shot to the face to change a life. I met Ervin when we began our…


The Method of Missions
