When I celebrated my 85th birthday, I determined to put in writing the miracles of my life and ministry. As I counted the many miracles of God's grace, not only for me, but for my family and the persons whom I was privileged to serve, the more I reflected upon the way the Holy Spirit has led and worked through all these years, and the more I felt compelled to put this in writing so that others might be blessed and challenged, as I have been during all of my life. I knew God's hand was upon my life when I was told the story of the miracle of my birth, and I determined to share it with our children, our grandchildren, and now our great-grandchildren, so they would know the good news of God's marvelous grace, and of the way He has worked in my life and has supplied every need. I also wanted the people with whom I have ministered, as well as those with whom I have worked hand-in-hand, to know how they have encouraged me and have been such a blessing to me. John L.
