Testimony

I was saved at an early age, when I was in about the third grade. My dad, a livestock-feed salesman, had been recently led to the Lord by one of his farmer customers, Evan Rahn. We had moved to Lanark, Illinois, where we began attending the First Brethren Church. One Sunday the pastor asked for those who desired to dedicate their lives to the Lord to go forward at the conclusion of his sermon. I do not recall the preacher’s name, the details of his sermon, nor what transpired immediately after going forward.

I do remember, however, being prompted by the Holy Spirit to respond to the invitation. And I remember, after was dismissed, sitting in the car with my dad who asked me a series of questions: “Do you believe that Jesus died for your sins and rose again?” “Do you accept Jesus as your Savior?” These may not have been his exact words, but I remember answering “yes” to these and perhaps other questions. It was at this point in my life that I believed I trusted Christ. Later, at the same church, I was baptized by immersion, together with my mom and dad in the same service.

Later, when I was a sophomore in high school, we moved to Kent, Illinois. At the invitation of another of my dad’s customers, Gene Runte, we began attending Berean Baptist Church in the nearby city of Freeport. It was while attending this church that I really began to grow in my Christian life, and where, eventually, I met my lovely wife-to-be, Becky. I am thankful for the biblical foundation which I obtained throughout my high school years while attending Berean.

After high school, I went on to obtain a bachelors degree (1969), after which Becky and I married. I then had the opportunity to earn MS (1972) and PhD (1976) degrees, at two different universities. As a family with two children, and while I remained a “professional student,” we were blessed to have attended excellent churches, which allowed us to continue our Christian growth. In about 1973, while attending the University of Missouri, I rededicated my l life to Christ during private devotions.

After finally completing my education, I began my professional career, ending up in Terre Haute, Indiana, in 1978, where we remained for 12.5 years. Again, we had access to an excellent church, and this time also to a good Christian school. We are so thankful for this span of time, which was foundational for our two daughters, Cindy and Katie, who grew up there. After a couple of additional moves, we relocated to St. Joseph, Missouri, in 1995. I retired from Boehringer INgelheim in May 2013.

For the last 31 years I have served the Lord as a member of the board of directors for the Creation Research Society, for 28 years as the Society’s membership secretary, and for over 18 years as editor and graphic designer for its publication, Creation Matters.
