What is it about retirement your understanding white ball sit on your hands, Hispanic kids what I look back, God blessed me with ghost passion and vision. God is greatly passion and vision. Passion is the energy which fuels my sales vision is still about takes me to places I never passion, vision, journeys got the energy to go explore and discover new places in Christ is not someone told you 34 years ago that one day Billy retired he will offer three books you'll be teaching Hispanic kids Bible about Jesus teaching of English. What would you say that the way is same her burns, opening doors, I know that you have worked with you. So that's another door. The Ukraine sure the gospel is so trip to Ukraine marketing leadership and I know you've done open doors to share know that thing that I was feeling that I gave a surrender after I finish writing my book trying so hard to came and sought me out without my seeking and I became one of five people in America was chosen as a Fulbright scholar Russian.

He went back and got use all that you are days you back what you see young people think about where God and have them just got patient with talk with Christian Christian listen everything you communicate with talk with the Emperor. Talk with Austin on my deck sometimes raise my arms say thank you God. Look at the trees and say they believe created amazing was too quick recap of your three books.

Love, prayer, healing, salvation you want those that affect take this prescription is something else.

I love how you Without warning label on their really challenging this challenge.

Most challenging these little Hispanic man someone illegally here all and not trying to sidestep someplace believers when the mission field comes soft on the guy yesterday and go every year. He goes on on a missions trip with all the stuff you notice I talked to John she got Skype in mentoring students crazy.

All these folks are coming over from Honduras to hear on the airplane.

I can just go down the road talk to him and love and encourage leave the Christ church disciple. There's a there's a opportunity for the gospel that God is over wide open as believers or what your challenger vortices that you can write these books and something also have a God open another door gets less than a month now. Gideon so well in another door think that would have more great opportunity for Gideon the order.

Sure Hispanic bobbles those coming in Spanish is one of us and that's what you do until she's kids nothings in your heart is young Hispanic hospitals and and North Carolina Carolina so if even the first part is 30 minutes for meal and we have an hour to read the gospel with you actually make them open. Make them read scripture about so during the Bible every Thursday night with finish homework homework homework go out and soccer in the field, what you challenge as we wrap up wake up the active now is not the time to be on Jesus coming back support media strategy to try to sound speak up forces that just counts on all your races homophobic. Whatever it might be Christians silent we cannot be silent and we started very far back anything that may come in what he sees some of the new Christ. Listen radio drive down the road you were there you were didn't know much about the Bible you start digging and I wrote a book helpful to get back in the Bible tells people they don't know the Christian is the first thing you know, maybe a neighbor that lived next door to many people don't even know you. We have far. We like people who are far share. It's about connecting the gospel, not a Christian Christian so close to you. Open your eyes and increases easily grant the right not Christian, Christ wants you to all.
