This past week I had more than one thing to smile about, but I think the most important for me was what I accomplished with one of my dad’s books. My dad went to be with the Lord about 6 years ago — at the age of 88 — after 70 plus years in ministry for Jesus. He served the Lord as an evangelist, a pastor, a Bible teacher, a Christian journalist and author, and a Christian radio and TV speaker.
He had a strong anointing for teaching God’s Word, and he wrote a lot of articles and a few books in which he shared a great deal of revelation from that Word. His books that were published before his death are now in an out-of-print state, and I have the copyright. So I decided it was time to re-furbish them and get a second edition of them into the public. Our family has done all we could to keep my dad’s teaching available to help people, by continuing to publish his work in periodicals, on his original blog, and even through YouTube. One of the YouTube videos on my Radical About Jesus Ministries channel — in which my dad reads about 40 minutes of healing scriptures, along with a word or two of exhortation — has now been viewed over 90 thousand times.
Anyway, this past week I managed to get his book refurbished, reformatted, and republished. I’ve already received orders for copies of the book, and I’m currently working on one of his others as well. So I’m especially glad that his teaching will still reach out to help people through another generation. That’s worth smiling about big time.
