  • Something funny that happened while preaching: Once did a sermon playing on the theme of mission impossible entitled "The Mission IS Possible!," which opened with a tape recorder that starts smoking after message played. Unfortunately the fog machine over did it and the crowd could barely see me for the first few minutes of the sermon!
  • What I want on my tombstone: He loved God. He loved his family. He loved those who knew Jesus and he loved those who didn't.
