From the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia to the villages of the River Nile, they called him “The Preacher.” To know him was to love him—hear him preach, and you did not forget.
Prior to his spiritual conversion, this incredible mountain preacher could neither read nor write, yet with God’s divine touch, he won thousands of souls for Jesus Christ. His success came from his love for people.
“You have to love the people,” he once said. “Many preachers love to preach, but they do not know how to love people.”
Not only did this outpouring of love touch lives, so did his discernment of Holy Scripture and the uncontrollable tears he shed for lost souls.
