July 22, 1964 is the day when God given faith did a work of grace in my soul that changed my life for time and eternity. My hopes, my plans, my future was given a new direction and a new destination. Heaven became my home, the Holy Ghost my comforter, the Lord Jesus my Savior, and an Eternal God my Everlasting Father all in one moment of time. Some six years later, the Holy Spirit interrupted my routine life to inform me that He had plans for me. He showed me that I had been chosen of God to proclaim the Gospel of the Lord. That news was not what I was expecting or wanting to hear. My first passion was singing, which I had done since the age of 4 and desired to continue to do. Some eight years later, the Lord got my attention as to the fact that I had no choice in the matter, because He was in charge. He made me understand that I had been bought with a price and it was my duty and responsibility to present myself a living sacrifice which is my reasonable service. According to His will and grace, he has blessed me to sing with the Inspirations now over 35 years and to preach the Gospel of Christ for more than 29 years in several states, as well as in Israel and Honduras.
In May of 1999, the Lord dealt with my heart to go from pastoring to evangelism. The burden of Romans 10:1, “Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel (my people) is that they might be saved.” became the foundation for Heart’s Desire Ministries. It is my desire that my people of this nation, as well as people on foreign soil, may see and hear the Lord Jesus through my ministry and be drawn to a saving knowledge of Him! My life’s verse is Psalms 37:4, which declares, “Delight thyself also in the Lord, and He shall give thee the desires of thine heart.” What a wonderful promise from the Lord! The Word shall not return void, but it shall accomplish that which the Lord purposes for it to do.
The Lord has opened the door for “Heart’s Desire Ministry” to air on thirteen cable systems and one radio station in the southeast. There are three of these stations that are also on the internet each week. The Lord blessed us to record solo projects entitled “My Heart’s Desire” and “Hymns from my Heart” available in CD and cassette. I also have available DVD, videos, CD and cassette tapes that have been recorded at services where I have been blessed to preach. The revenue from these products helps to pay the expenses of a television ministry.
To serve the Lord Jesus in any way He directs is my life. I am looking forward to having the opportunity to share the ministry that my Master has chosen me for with your people. Please, feel free to contact me or my wife, Bavaria, with any questions or concerns.
May the Good Lord bless you and your ministry is our prayer.
In Christ’s Name,
