I was born into this world on September 26, 1968, as the first child to extremely young parents. It wasn't until November 1, 1987 that I first answered the call to the ministry and got baptized with the mighty Holy Spirit. That is when I realized the depth that the hand of God had been on my life for years. You see, I had come from a broken home where my parents divorced when I was at a very young age. My grandparents and great grandparents eventually took me in and raised me on their farm in the hills of Kentucky.
Nobody in my immediate family seemed remotely interested in God or His church, even though they professed to be Christians. My mother tells me that before my parents divorced, I used to take my two younger brothers, Jon and Jason, to the screened-in back porch and I would play church with them. I would prop my Bible on a stool and make my two younger brothers sit down in front of me and I was their pastor.
I later remember, after my parents' bitter divorce, lying on the grass as a small boy in front of my great grandparents' house. I was sorely upset because my small life seemed to be in shambles, even before it really got started. As I laid there on my back and stared up at the clouds questioning and reasoning in my mind about who loved me and who didn't love me, I remember wondering if God was truly real.
Lying there looking at the blue sky and watching the clouds roll by, it was then that I first remember the Lord making Himself real to me. I really didn’t know Him, but He unquestionably knew me. Very quickly, as all of these thoughts and questions came regarding my small existence, other people’s love for me, and the reality of God, the presence of God fell on me in an all-consuming way that Kentucky day. God made His presence and love known to me at that moment in a very special way. He was there and had always been there, in spite of all the questions and doubts that flooded this little boy’s small but growing mind.
Even though I continued to face very difficult and challenging situations as I grew to adulthood, the grace of God was upon my life. At one time, I was driven to the point of suicide as a teenager. In the middle of my great grandparents' driveway, with the barrel of my .22 caliber rifle placed on my forehead and the trigger ready, I was questioning the love of my father, who I barely saw and felt like I didn't really even know. The presence of God seemed so very far away, but He was most definitely present.
It was the hand of God that saw me through a difficult and very rocky start to my life. I was called, but I didn't understand or know it at the time. Satan did his best to hinder me many times throughout those early years of my life, but the goodness of God saw me through. There was and still is a call to be fulfilled, my call to Him, as well as my call for Him.
In August of 1991, I moved to Broken Arrow, Oklahoma to sit under the ministry of the late Kenneth E. Hagin and to attend RHEMA Bible College. Within days of arriving at school, I ran into a beautiful brown-eyed girl named Robyn. She, too, was part of the call of God upon my life. Robyn became my best friend, and then we later married on July 31, 1993. The hand of God was upon her life and saw her through many difficulties, even as growing up as a pastor's daughter. Our individual calls soon became one call - we both desire to know the Lord and to make Him known by all.
It's amazing to see how the Lord can bring a farm boy from the hills of Kentucky and cause his path to cross with a young lady who was literally raised on the other side of the world on a small island in the middle of the vast Pacific Ocean. The Lord really does know what He's doing, and He really does know how to lead us, sometimes even unawares to us. Trust Him always. Robyn is my closest confidant and friend in this world of ours. We share this journey unto complete fulfillment of the call of God.
