Just a servant with a laptop sharing stories of Grace, Love, Hope and Comfort
I was born the son of a Pastor/Missionary. I began traveling on mission trips as a small boy and began preaching the Gospel at the age of 13. In my life I have preached the gospel allover the world.
I have been blessed to have been an associate pastor in some of Americas largest churches, thankful to work under and be mentored by my senior pastors Dr.Tommy Barnett , Dr. Charles Blair. I am especially thankful to Dr. Ray Wilkerson, who saw God’s hand on my life even as a very young man, and helped guide me into the ministry and was always my pillar of support and my example of a godly man. Thankful to God to have spent time with Pastor David Wilkerson in his home in Texas as a young minister and being taught love and outreach. Thankful to Pastor Forrest Gibbs for helping teach me faith.
I am thankful to God for allowing me to have success in also in the business world. I took a one year sabbatical, that led to me leaving the ministry for 10 years of my life. During that time I was able to become a multimillionaire in the oil business, but also fell away from God. During that time I also lost the fortune the Lord had given me. I became a drug addict for a few years and was totally lost. But many years ago, by His mercy the Lord reached out to me, and I gave my heart and soul back to Him. By His grace He has restored me into a life of being a servant, ministering to those in need, and for that I am the most thankful of all. I thank the Lord for Romans 5:20..But where sin increased, grace increased all the more.
Over the years the Lord has enabled us to build churches and orphanages in Mexico and spread the Gospel to indigenous tribes in Brazil.
Today I spend my time spreading the Word, speaking the Word and sharing the Word. Bringing souls into the kingdom. Using my ministry experience and my business experience for the kingdom of God is my heart’s and life’s ambition.
On a Personal Note: There was a time in my life when I was separated from God. I had been wandering in my own private desert, lost in sin for some time. I was lost, I had been on drugs. I was in despair, I was scared, I was lonely, and I was hurting. I needed love, I needed help, I needed hope…I needed something. I cried out “Help me God”. I knew at that moment, He had heard me. All of a sudden I wasn’t lost anymore, I wasn’t afraid, I wanted to live. I knew that I had found Him again, and I would serve Him for the rest of my life. He spoke to me by His Spirit in a still, small but powerful voice that said to me, “Darrell you are finally home, you are at peace now”. And even though I may have taken the wrong way to get where I am, He has returned me to the place in Grace that I now occupy.
