This story is based on the life of Robert Cross. I met Mr. Cross in 1994 while traveling as an evangelist in Central Florida. I stopped by a fish camp to get off the road for a few days, and Robert was the owner of the camp. We became good friends at the first contact.
Mr. Cross was fighting postwar syndrome from the Vietnam War. He shared with me some of his past about how Jesus had converted him and called him to be a minister of the cross.
Mr. Cross’s past experience has inspired me to strive to be the best that I can be and use all the entire gifts and strength that God has given me. I told Mr. Cross that I enjoyed writing and asked him if I could use his story to write a book. He gladly said yes. Later, Mr. Cross introduced me to Carl, who was a board member of the church. Carl had worked with the church from the start in Titusville and was a board member until Robert passed. Carl provided me with most of the information for the book.
