The Lord has blessed us so very much with so many friends, I think the Lord knew we needed a lot of friends to help us in ministry and everyday life. Two of the best friends Sharon and I have are Pastor Paul and Jo Holt of Magdalean, NM. Paul is the Pastor at First Baptist Church in Magdalena, NM.
Best friends in Jesus help keep us accountable to the Word of God in the love of Jesus! Amen!
Theses two have been such an inspiration to me and Sharon! From Paul helping me with news reports and co- hosting “Ask the Pastor”on KKIM Christian Radio, a role model on how to be a Pastor. His wisdom is so very Godly, Jo’s prayers are MIGHTY! They both love like Jesus.
When it came time for the Lord to pull me out of KKIM , 8 years ago this August, God had to pull me out, YES HE DID! I WAS STUBBORN, with the help of Pastors like Paul and Bill Ruhl..LOL!..they pulled me out!..Pastor Paul built the website for FGGAM! Paul still maintains the site as a love offering to us!!!
MOST OF ALL, what Paul and Jo have taught not only us, but thousands of what a Godly marriage looks like!
One of the best messages I have read on marriage was done by the Focus on the Family Folks: God’s Design for Marriage
Here is what Jo posted on her Facebook page:
2-7-87 Celebrated our 33rd Anniversary in Albuquerque today at the Cheesecake Factory for lunch. Paul took me to the Cheesecake Factory for the first time on my birthday when we were dating in 1985. ????Special then, Special now. ????Thank You my Paul! God has truly Blessed our marriage, Very Special Thanks to our Lord Jesus Christ. 33 Beautiful Blessed years & counting… ???? ???? Love Your Jo
God Bless you Paul and Jo! We love you and yours so very much! Paul and Jo have been blessed by so many precious grandbabies they are starting a baseball team in Magdalena! The name of the team is the “Magdalena Angels”
I also want to thanks Shona Neff and Shonda Savage for inviting me to speak at their writers conference years ago! It was there that I met Pastor Paul and it was the start of an eternal friendship!
