God Is Gathering His People Through My Gospel

In 1963 God sent me to McKinney, Texas as a practicing veterinarian. There I met and worked for a very good friend, J.P. Derryberry, DVM. Dr. Derryberry was a real kind-hearted person. He had a partner, Dr. Elmo King, so in effect I worked for both of them for a period of eleven months. During those eleven months God was establishing me in McKinney and Collin County as a veterinarian.

I opened my own practice January 1, 1964 and designed and built 121 Veterinary Hospital just a few short years later.

I always believed Jesus Christ was the Son of God and I met several Collin County residents that had the same belief; Dr. Derryberry was one of them. I met Tom Watkins, from the Rhea Mills community. Tom had some love for Jesus.

I met David Avery, DDS who became my dentist. I met George Webb; I met Everett Hamm; I met Henry Myrick; I met Paul Wilson, MD; I met Ed Veigel, a McKinney lawyer; I met Jerry Sims, MD; I met Jim Wilson, MD; I met Scotty Long; I met James Stewart, a banker; I met Laud Howell, Howell Furniture and Dr. Mack Hill, pediatrician.

These men were all local leaders in McKinney, Texas. I met many others that became good friends of mine.

In 1970, at the direction of God, I sold 121 Veterinary Hospital and my practice. God sent me to Florida for eleven months in 1971 and while there God directed me to pray for revival in North Texas.

I returned to Texas in May 1972 and God sent me into the wilderness and during those years in the wilderness, I lived in Argyle, Texas.

In 1977 I returned to McKinney where I opened a new office for my veterinary practice and purchased a home in Fairview. Soon after returning, God sent me to the First United Methodist Church of McKinney where I became a lay speaker.

In 1980, I started Water of Life Church of Plano, Texas and in January 1981, moved into our current location. I went on radio in 1981 and television in 1984.

All, except Paul Wilson, who died in a car wreck, knew about my obedience to God. They heard me on radio; they watched me on television. They were great friends in the flesh.

Dr. Avery, my dentist, said to me one day, “I wish I had your courage.”

“You do David,” I said.

“No Doyle,” he responded, “I don’t.”

In the 1980s Patti and I were having lunch at Wyatt’s Cafeteria and Dr. Derryberry and his wife were there having lunch as well. After lunch we talked and I said to Dr. Derryberry,

“If you would die now, are you sure that you’d go and be with Jesus?”

Dr. Derryberry, a pleasant person, said with a big smile. “Doc, I know I’d be with him.”

“That’s all I want to know,” I said, “I’ll see you in heaven.”

My friends, I know that God has shown me in the Spirit that many people that I’ve mentioned and many that I’ve not mentioned, and that are deceased are with Jesus. I expect to see every one of them, along with their families, when I meet Jesus in the air.

God Bless,
Doyle Davidson
Servant and apostle of the Lord Jesus Christ
