Stephen Olford is without question one of the great Preachers of the World:


Son of a missionary to Africa

Did not want to go through the trials and tribulations of a missionary.


Was mistreated by Christians in England and rebelled against God.


Studied to become an engineer.


Developed a new carburetor and got into racing motorcycles.


Remembers his mother praying and weeping for him.

Injured in a motorcycle accident and was given two weeks to live.


Refused to see the pastors who visited him – still rebellious.


Received a letter from his dad sent three months earlier with the following message: “Only one life ‘twill soon be past, Only what’s done for Christ will last.”


Stephen’s response: “Lord, if You will heal my body, I will serve You anywhere, any time, and at any cost!”

God healed Stephen!


And his life, has been used by God all because of a sincere prayer I will serve You anywhere, any time, and at any cost!”
