I thank the Lord for our son Matthew Scott. Yesterday he turned twenty-one years old. I remember the feeling of being a Dad for the first time, it's inexplicable really. I remember holding him up in the air at our home church, Victory Baptist in Loganville, Georgia, on the next Wednesday night so everyone could see him.

On that day, I was just twenty one years old myself! Wow! I was married to the most beautify girl ever, we had just recently arrived in the United States to start Bible Collage, and I had just started a new job. Man, you could say that I was a bit overwhelmed! What precious memories.

Today, twenty one years later, here we are, I'm still married to the same most beautiful girl ever, and we are serving the Lord together as a family. I could not ask for more. God is so good to us, all the time He is good to us! Matthew, I am so proud of you! I love you, and always will.

Son, stay close to the Lord.
