  2. These pictures are snapshots taken in very poor lighting. I apologize. If anyone has some better ones, taken during this same time frame, I would be thrilled to post yours.

    Thank you.

  3. Marty, I had some good “warm” thoughts, as I watched the 8mm film of the WABC in action. I was there a few times, during those wonderful days, when I was Youth Preident of the Western District, UPC. Brother Clyde Haney had me to preach to the Student body, up in the balcony. Those were marvelous, unpretentious days among us. OH, how I wish it would be the same today. I deeply regret, that our Youth of today, will never know the sweet, patriotic, loving, kind and grand America, that was then; that applies the same for the UPC, too. I saw some faces that I remember, and relized that some of them are gone on out from us, some have died, some backslid, some become Apostate, SO SAD. But then, there is the bright-side, You, and many of the Youth from WABC, from that time, have accomlished great Ministries and Churches, for the Lord Jesus Christ. I salute You all.

  4. Bro. Ballestero,

    I enjoyed meeting you at GC2010 in Houston, TX and talking about the work of God, especially missions. In looking at your Blog I discovered you had attended WABC in Stockton, CA. I also attended WABC in the 1965 – 1968 years. In fact, Bro. George Craft, missionary evangelist in Europe, and I worked together several years while atteding school in Stockton. Good times and good memories. I also put your Blog as a link of interest from the WD Blog ( If you could also link to the WD Blog it would be much appreciated. God bless and thank you for all you do to further this beautiful gospel message and the kingdom of God.
