The writer can certainly testify that sitting under the ministry of such a servant of God was the greatest blessing he received since his conversion.

As the aircraft gently lifts off from Chicago, it leaves behind one of the busiest airports in the world. At first, it heads out over Lake Michigan before turning sharply around and flying back over Chicago. It is already dark outside, as I sit with my head pressed against the small window.
