A man who changed my life . . .

I am on my way to a very sad time for me and yet a celebration of a life lived for Jesus Christ. The man who led me to a saving knowledge of Jesus is being put to rest today. In 1970 George Dutra knelt down with me and my wife along with his wife Jeanette (my wife's cousin) in my living room and led us through the sinners prayer. Not only did we get saved but God filled us with the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues. This was just a part of the wonderful ministry of this couple. Jeanette has already gone to meet Jesus in Heaven now George will join her. Thank you both for leading me to this wonderful life.

    Sorry for your loss Tim. Fond remembrance is how passed loved ones (pets included) stay alive in your heart.
    I'm not a religious man, so if there is a "Savior" and I'm condemned to Hell, I hope it's a nice dry, latent heat. And I'm sure I won't have any trouble retaining an attorney if I need one.
