As a young man of the 1960’s it was an intense privilege of grace to first hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  This occured while I worked and lived among the Redwoods of Northern California.  It was during that time I first bought and read the Bible.  Although profoundly ignorant I heard the Word of God with a hunger of faith.  It was while working, walking and living among the Redwood I came to know in my heart Him whose love stained another wood red for the salvation of His creation and even His simple creature working in His garden.

Thank you Lord Jesus.
