Luke 4:18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised...

Faurot Field - Columbia, MO August 1, 1958

It was while I was in the Navy, sitting in a gun tub on a ship in the South Pacific, the USS Cape Esperance T-CVE88—sitting there thinking, and I decided that day I’d become a veterinarian when I got out and I would treat horses.

I was discharged from the United States Navy in 1955 and spent one semester at Joplin Junior College, beginning in the fall of 1956. I took 15 hours and entered the University of Missouri in January 1957.

The Lord visited me August 1, 1958 as I was finishing the rotating of the tires on my automobile. I was 200 yards north and slightly east of the Big M on Faurot Field in Columbia, Missouri and the Spirit of God fell upon me and it scared the daylights out of me. He said, "I don't want you to be a veterinarian, I want you to be a minister of the gospel." I started praying, “Oh God, don’t send me to hell, oh God, don’t send me to hell, oh God, don’t send me to hell.”  My spirit knew where I was headed if I didn’t turn around.

 I didn’t heed to the Lord’s presence or His words, and went ahead, entering the University’s veterinary program in September, 1958.

Those that have ears to hear let them hear what the Spirit of the Lord is saying.

God Bless,

Servant and apostle of Jesus Christ
