The sponsor’s letter started like any other, but something quickly caught our attention: I am very glad to sponsor you. I want to encourage you to take your school studies seriously. Learn to ask the Lord to guide you: He loves you and is watching over you. In my 99 ½ years, the Lord has helped me to remember to ask Him for help in making many right decisions. God will always help you if you ask Him.
Mr. Harold Bender is an unassuming man with a commitment to ministry, and what he shares in the video above will encourage and inspire you. Especially because 12/29/2011 is his 100th birthday. We’d like to wish Mr. Bender a very happy birthday, and warm wishes for the new year! Thank you Mr. Bender for your example.
