He and his wife Brenda love the Lord, and are a blessing in their church and in the local community. He turned his business over to his partner over 4 years ago, to do a mission out-reach in West Warwick. He will share how he listens the to the prompting of the Holy Spirit and the Holy Spirit directs his path.
Jesus said to him, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments hang the law and the Prophets." (Matt. 12: 37-40)
