June 1971 God sent me to Hollywood, Florida as a practicing veterinarian to manage a small animal hospital in Opa Locka. During my time there I met the Fort Lauderdale Five along with a young minister, Mike Reed, and his wife, Pat, who ministered on the beaches of Southern California. They were familiar with the Love Song Band and knew Chuck Girard personally.
I left Florida in May of 1972 and returned to Texas. The following year I was visited by Mike and Pat Reed and their four children at my home in Argyle. During the Reed’s stay at our house Mike was under severe attack of the devil. In the daytime he would have to rest and at night he would teach in our house.
In one of our conversations I shared with Mike what God had revealed to me; that there was a foundation and it is spoken about in I Corinthians 3:
10 According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon.
11 For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
I asked Mike, “Where is that foundation?” His response was, “Doyle, don’t you know?” I said, “No.” “Well,” he said, “It is Hebrews 6:1,2”:
1 Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God,
2 Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.
After he left my house I started studying the foundation as outlined in Hebrews 6. I developed a teaching that I used for many years in Water of Life Christian Training School, on radio, television and in the crusades of several states.
In June 2008 God spoke to me that He had sent my ancestors here to America so I could preach this gospel. I discovered through research in 2009 that my ancestors were instrumental in establishing the state of Rhode Island and the Six Principal Church in New England. I had been teaching those same principals of the doctrine of Christ from Hebrews 6 that my ancestors taught since that day Mike Reed pointed them out to me. That was certainly a divine appointment that God ordained between Mike and me that day in Argyle.
