I just wanted to say a very special Happy Birthday to my dad today. He turns 79 years old. He accepted the Lord Jesus as his Lord and Saviour well over 50 years ago.
As a boy that felt that God had called him to be a missionary I was supported and encouraged. I was taken to church and challenged to serve God.
I thank God for the first in our family to start a new heritage: He was the first in his family to get saved; then his oldest son, Austin, became a missionary, then his grandsons, Chris and David and granddaughters Stephanie and Joy all joined the new heritage serving God full time.
I thank God for a dad that started an entire new Gardner line of men and women that want the Lord Jesus Christ to be first and to be honored and glorified with their lives.
