Yes, I have known him since I was a very young person. He started his ministry out of the church I was attending as a young person.

He has started many churches.

I was very surprised to hear of his passing although he and his wife both have not been in the best of health for some time.

He was indeed a prolific church planter.

I have worked with him in almost every work he has taken on for the last 17 years.

He will be greatly missed.

He has had multiple strokes and was not able to get around well or speak well for the last few years but in his sleep Sister Phillips would hear him speaking and when she went to see what he might be needing she found that he was preaching the gospel and speaking in tongues in his sleep.

Ministry was the heart of the man.

In his last moments Sister Phillips was with him.

He said "look... those 2 men are coming to get me". She looked around to see who he was talking about and told him she didn't see any men.

He said "Those 2 men... they are coming to get me". He then raised his hands and died.

What was his life about?

He was about his fathers business.

I didn't realize until I read his obituary that his father was a minister also.
