Big year for you banner year for goalie inscription supply you said when dad and I started this ministry.

Tell us about how you see this is using the bookstore you got a cash register. You charge money for these books and Bibles and things, but some folks see Christianity as an industry you said ministry tell us about that what we as look at ourselves as the provider of resources for the Christian community and for the churches in the area you have to have materials like this to help you grow you got have Bibles you need good home to core with Bible verses on it and in your home any good books to encourage new devotionals in any good music, and so the churches that's what God and the Lord came to us establishes church and they do what he wants in the but are role is to support those charges and the support individual Christians in the area to provide the materials that they need to continue to grow in the Christian life on how to deal white goalie and get to this point ganache brother D. Wayne, you did a great family all goalie and his family.

I've known you for years. We played some ball together not doing as much of that now, as I like to all these bang ups and injuries, but how did you come to know the Lord and what got you excited about this things you are one of those passionate people I know about sharing Christ, especially through literature through Bibles and getting people into God's work while I'm originally from Hazzard, Kentucky, and when I was first born. I was brought home from the hospital to a crib behind the counter of Christian bookstore and has a Kentucky so it's I was born into it. But now I consider to be a calling that the Lord is put on my life just because I was born into.

It doesn't mean that I was mama called out. I was got called to do this and to provide, so it's in the census it like a work of evangelism or work of supporting the ministry of those around me, but I was saved when I was six years old and it was on the resurrection Sunday 1974 and the preacher just laid it out there and make me understand how that the Lord had done what he did for me and that I was wanted to serve the stripes and I'm writing now. I struggle some in my youth in my late teens and early 20s, but the Lord help me brought me through and never denied. I was married a little bit later in the Lord provided me with his beautiful family and a great wife and we want to continue to serve him and have another generation. My son Titus is really doing well in helping me with the stores and so were looking forward to another 30 years of ministry next generations of our family.
