Another Special Life in Christ
These testimony lives are not stories of "role models". Jesus is the
These are lives wonderfully touched & changed by Jesus!
Born about 1956, he finished college in 2 years
and attended seminary (because he wanted to be involved in Christian broadcasting) for a year
during which time his wife had to undergo surgery and radiation for spinal cancer. They
were financially wiped out and existed month to month...God amazingly providing.
He (Wikipedia write up) took a
job directing the television ministries of evangelist James Robison. Later, he was a pastor
in Pine Bluff & then Texarkana, Arkansas (each place 6 years). He sees government as the
mission field to which he has been called...not to create a theocracy but to be a present
witness as he governs. He became governor 15 July 1996 on resignation of the previous
governor (had been Lt. Gov. from 1993) and re-elected in 2002.
In a lesson to all believers
who are not pastors or in full time Christian ministry, Mike feels that his impact on
non-believers & believers might actually be greater than when he was a pastor. Another in
this testimony list worked for the governor at one time.

acceptance of Jesus as your savior. Are you tired of life as it now is for you? He will
accept you just as you are right this second! Consider accepting Jesus now
