  2. You know Bro Marty, I came home from the US Navy, January 1946, not long after your Dad had did this preaching, down on old “c” street.
    He was the Travling Evangelist, out of my Brother’s Jimmy Davis, church in Fresno, at that time.
    I loved those good old days.

  6. this is a beautiful picture, yet a sad picture. He preaches his heart out …..”and they would not hear.” I am very glad in his lifetime many heard and many obeyed. Not all turn away from hearing the Word preached. I loved the message “the Handwriting on the Wall”.

  7. God was listening. And, who knows—he may have planted a seed that could have taken years to grow to fruition. What a powerful message he preaches just by his faith in that bleak situation.
