      I came across his blog accidently while surfing the web. I’m a gun enthusiast and have been since I was a young boy. Now I’m sixty-six. I didn’t know he was a pastor and SO GLAD HE HAS ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN, SO DO I since I was saved by GRACE through Faith when I was seventeen. Look forward to meeting him someday. Sorry for your temporary loss of him. God Bless. John
