Where you are from: Phoenixville, PA

The year you trusted Christ: August of 1960.  My grandfather came to know the Lord in his 50s. He began to share the gospel with my Mom & Dad. They resisted. My grandparents gave us a free vacation at Word of Life Inn in Schroon Lake, NY.  I was seven and my parents were 30 when we came to Christ that summer.

Favorite verse: “Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever. Amen.” ~Ephesians 3:20 & 21

How you came to the Bible Institute:  I thought that one year of Bible would be a good foundation before going to engineering school. During the course of the year at WOLBI (1971-72) I went from wanting to be an engineer, to wanting to be a missionary pilot, to wanting to be a missionary to Israel, to not knowing what I wanted to be but wanting to study the Bible more.
