Our Guest Speaker for Vesper’s was Jimmy King. Cliff met him at Home Depot. He meets no strangers😃. After their conversation and hearing his story, he invited him to come and speak to the guys.
Jimmy was married and he has two daughters. His wife divorced him because of his alcoholism. He shared an experience that changed his life. While inebriated, he fell in a pond. For two hours he sat in the pool with his head out of the water. He was hospitalized for two weeks and he knew it was God who saved his life. He became a Christian and has been sober for almost two years.
Jimmy now has a good relationship with his children and family. While in rehab, he had a heart attack, which also caused brain damage. In addition, he has a pacemaker and early stages of dementia. Despite his illnesses, he is still an open door for those who need his help, especially men addicted to alcohol.
He has an online ministry where he texts people all over the world telling them about the love of Jesus. In summary,
he emphasized how we must all love Jesus and one another. He said, “If you don’t love everybody, I doubt you are a Christian.”
Jimmy’s message was inspiring and we were all blessed.
