"Me and My Pop"
My grandfather A.S. London had the most influence of anyone in my life. He lived in Oklahoma. I lived in Arkansas and Missouri, but we would see one another on holidays and for long stretches in the summer.
He was a Sunday School Evangelist. He traveled all over the United States holding Sunday School Evangelistic Crusades. He was very popular and in most of the churches he served, they would have their largest attendance on the final service of the crusade.
Everybody loved Pop. He just made people feel special. He was full of gratitude and joy. He was not a "doom-'n-gloomer"! He brought sunshine wherever he went. I really loved Pop not because he bought me "stuff", but because he took time to be with me.
I was in the beginning of my ministry when Pop took sick and was dying. I flew into Houston to see him. He was in the hospital, barely able to speak. I spent the day just loving on him, and when it was time for me to leave I sat on the side of the bed, and asked him one last question, "Pop", I said, "How is it that your ministry has been so successful, and you are so loved"? I did not know if he could answer me, but he did. He called me Junior. "Junior, I learned a long time ago that people need to know how much God loves them, but they also need to know how much you love them." Those were the last words I ever heard Pop say - and words that have guided my ministry ever since. Pop - I really miss you.

compared to the priceless privilege and supreme
advantage of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord [and of
growing more deeply and thoroughly acquainted with Him-a joy unequaled]. Philippians 3:8 AMP
Pastor of Women's Ministries.
Faithful Women and Their Extraordinary God
Join other women this summer to read together a very special book,
Faithful Women And Their Extraordinary God. In this powerful book, you will discover the stories of five ordinary women - Sarah Edwards, Lilias Trotter, Gladys Aylward, Esther Ahn Kim, and Helen Roseveare - who trusted in their extraordinary God as He led them to do great things for His kingdom. The author, Noel Piper, holds up the lives and deeds of these five amazing women as examples of what it means to be truly faithful. Learning about these women will challenge readers to make a difference for Christ in their families, in the church, and throughout the world. Noël Piper is the wife of pastor and author John Piper, mother of five, and grandmother of twelve.
Each week we will read one chapter in Faithful Women And Their Extraordinary God, focusing on one of the five women. Then we will meet from 9-11 AM in Lakeview Clubhouse and share together in a discussion of all we have learned about these powerful women and their faith in an extraordinary God. We will discover their challenges, victories, and the secrets to their faith in God.
