The Frosting on the Cake

When our new-born son died in 1952, I told the Lord that I would like to spend my life training other people’s sons to spread the gospel. Three years later, I was added to the faculty of Northwest College of the Bible (Then called Churches of Christ School of Evangelists) in Portland, Oregon. That arrangement has continued over the span of my years.

Among my many, many students has been our son-in-law Dave Kubow and then his son, Tim. Tim is still taking classes online from his grandfather.

Labor Day weekend, Lois and I went to Deer Park, Washington to participate in the ordination of Tim to the ministry. He has begun working as a staff member of Christ’s Church of Deer Park.

When I thought back to that graveside of 55 years ago, I shed a few tears and had an exceptional glimpse of how the Lord works in our lives.

While I did not benefit directly from training at NCB as a student, I am greatful to you, Charles, and your dear wife, Lois, for your years of training others and the fact that, ever since I drew my first breath of born again air, you've been there as a solid figure in the distance. I always looked up to you. Your Scripture Supply House kept me well materialed with tapes and lessons that were suitable as Kathi and I reoriented our lives toward the kingdom. I am so glad you made that decision years ago to train other. You await a rich reward, brother.
