Adventurer, Cartoonist, Innovator, Musician, Man of God, Missionary, Trainer ? all characterize John King. Eagerly accepting challenges that most would say were impossible or couldn?t be done, and yet inspiring others to participate with him in his radical ?Off the Wall? endeavours. From jungles with crocodiles, to participating in the Guinness World Records with his musical saw, John wouldn?t say NO to any opportunity, sometimes to the dismay of his more sensible wife, Laura.

John?s motto: ?Live vibrantly; Learn continuously; Love deeply and Leave a godly Legacy?  is evident through his life, ministry and relationships. 

With over 250 short stories, mostly written from John?s creative perspective, we share a slice of humor, a bit of philosophy, a touch of heartache, and some of the lessons we learned through it all. May this book encourage and challenge our family, friends, partners, and all who may choose to read it, as we reveal a few of the experiences God brought into our lives!

john’s faithful investment in people has seeded many fields that will continue to grow and ripen to all eternity. his creative servant leadership has blessed me and so many others.

    - Robert Lincoln “Bud” Hancock, Founder/President Emeritus, 

        Providence International

i enjoyed john’s many insights and writings over the years and always found our interchange a blessing. we served together in many places around the world and his incredibly active mind kept him on the innovative edge of everything he tackled.  i never quite knew how he got the time to keep up with so much. his investment into the lives of hundreds of folk will only be fully recognised when we join him in glory.

    - David Cummings, Past International President of Wycliffe Bible Translators  

        (WBT) and Senior trainer with the International Training Alliance.

i’ve known john king from the beginning of his ministry with wbt. he inspired and encouraged many - including myself – to experience how they could become involved in various parts of god’s mission field.

    - Ron Lewis, long-time friend, former member of Wycliffe Associates Board, 

        and of Canadian Aviation Ministry

john’s service to train local leaders was very valuable and continues to have an impact in cameroon and neighboring countries. his legacy lives on.

    - Minnie Stoumbaugh, former Wycliffe member, promoted to glory in 2017

i served with john on the mobile mission maintenance international board and came to respect him as a godly man full of wisdom and a deep passion to train and develop people not just with skills but with a deep spirituality.

    - Felix & Eve Muchimba, Zambia, former MMM International Board Member

when you think of a man who’s traveled to over 75 countries tirelessly investing his efforts in training spiritual leaders, do you wonder what this man’s family life is like? 

I think I speak for myself, the King family and all who crossed paths with “Father John”, when I say that he was a valiant man of God who ALWAYS challenged us to step outside the comforts of a mediocre life into a life of overflow and abundance.

    - Rev. Vahen King, Daughter-In-Law, Author, Speaker & Life Coach

i will cherish the rich treasurers of wisdom i have gained from john’s life and ministry of writing and equipping others for god’s kingdom. 

    - David and Sineina Gela, former Director of Bible Translation Association, 

        PNG; Director of Pacific Affairs at Wycliffe Global Alliance
