George Bolden, 1983

Sometimes a child of God can find himself in such a situation that he needs a place to stay. George Bolden came to the Mission at such a time. He received the help that he needed and stayed to give invaluable help as a member of the staff–Assistant Director of Men.

As a child my parents did not teach me “Snow White” and “Alice in Wonderland”. I am very glad they did not because they were teaching me the Word of God. Proverbs 22:6 says, “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old he will not depart from it.”

I have not departed from this training. I have learned as we come to God’s Word each day, we must hear, listen, and obey what God is saying. Remember James 1:22? When you study the Word of God let James 1:22 become part of your life, “But be ye doers of the Word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.”

I thank God for Jesus and His wonderful teaching. Each day He is doing something in my life. The love that God has given me, I want this love to go out to all mankind.
