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,
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.

- 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?
