Happy Birthday Dad!

A quick tribute to my Dad on his birthday.

Not many people have traveled the world, pastored churches, sky dived, sailed from California to Hawaii, been an all-star basketball player, smoked jumped into forest fires, built a house and a church, written a book, counceled hundreds of people, flown a plane, married and buried, and above all, have a passion for God, His Word and His people.

Dad, you have instilled in me the biggest desire to do what's right. I love you. I am still praying that you are feeling better soon. Hope your birthday is special and that you come home safe.
