In April 1955, the Lord told me to start a church. I felt at first that this would be only a small mission that would last for but a short time. Little did I know that this was to be the beginning of something that God would use and it would grow into a fellowship that would one day be known throughout the world. It was in January 1969 that we started printing the "Contender". God has blessed this paper. At the present time, it is sent throughout all the world.
