The North Texas District Council celebrated its Centennial in June as it met on the campus of Southwestern A/G University in Waxahachie, Texas. It was certainly a memorable occasion crowned by a marvelous presence of the Holy Spirit in every service. There was a tremendous kick-off on Sunday evening with an overflow crowd with Missionary/Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke ministering. A 100% Pentecostal minister whose ministry, especially focused on Africa, has led literally millions to accept Jesus as personal Savior, who exhorted the crowd “If you want original results you need to preach the original Gospel with the original power of the Holy Spirit!”
Among the many pioneers and heroes of the faith honored on this occasion was my Aunt Louise Jeter Walker, the iconic missionary educator and author who wrote “The Great Questions of Life”. The time of congregational worship was some of the best that I have ever seen in a District Council with total participation and no generational gaps between worship leaders & congregants. Praise the Lord! We are proud and honored to have been foreign missionaries with the North Texas District for over 44 years and going strong into our 45th!
