The True Life Story
of a Postal Worker
That was to be my occupation in
I was born in Greenville,
Michigan, on January 20, 1943.
Because I carried mail for
32 years, (first, in the neighboring city of Belding, and
then in Greenville), I was known by many people in the area.
That was a good thing—not a
bad thing, because despite the bills that come in the mail,
people still look forward to seeing the mailman come.
Everyone hopes for a
personal letter in the mail that holds good news.
“As cold waters to a
thirsty soul, so is good news from a far country” (Holy
Bible, Proverbs 25:25, KJV).
The mailman gets to enjoy the
beautiful sunny days outside as he delivers the mail, but he
also has to trudge through the rain and snow when that
It is sometimes a hard life
for the mailman, but people count on him enduring the
hardships, so that they might have faithful mail service.
Some wonderful things in life come through the sacrifice of
others, and what they endure for our sakes.
I did not really understand about
a special sacrifice that was made for me, until I was 34
My wife learned about it,
Do you know what that
“But God commendeth his
love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, CHRIST
DIED FOR US” (Holy Bible, Romans 5:8, KJV).
Why did Jesus Christ sacrifice His
life for us on the cross?
That verse tells us
why—because we are sinners.
“Who his own self BARE OUR
SINS in his own body on the tree”
(Holy Bible, 1 Peter 2:24a, KJV).
Why are we sinners?
Did God make us that way?
No, God made everything
“And God saw every thing
that he had made, and, behold, it was VERY GOOD” (Holy
Bible, Genesis 1:31, KJV).
We were created in God’s image,
and He is good—not evil.
“GOD CREATED MAN IN HIS OWN
(Holy Bible, Genesis 1:27, KJV).
Then why are we sinners,
and how did we get that way?
God did not create living things as
He made us with a

mail—I made the

Satan is a fallen cherub
“Thou art the anointed
cherub that covereth… Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the
day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee”
(Holy Bible, Ezekiel 28:14-15, KJV).
People are NOT robots.
We have the

Adam and Eve chose to
disobey God’s one and only rule in the Garden of Eden: “Of
every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:
But of the tree of the
knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in
the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die”
(Holy Bible, Genesis 2:16-17, KJV).
When I learned that my wife had
repented of her sins, and asked the Lord Jesus Christ to
save her, I thought that I had literally lost the love of my
life to someone else—but my wife did not start preaching at
She quietly followed the
Bible’s instructions: “Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection
to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they
also may without the word be won by the conversation of the

Whose adorning let it not
be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of
wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel;
But let it be the hidden
man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the
ornament of a MEEK and QUIET SPIRIT, which is in the sight
of God of great price” (1 Peter 3:1-4, KJV).
God rewarded my wife by sending an
old friend of mine along who preached the gospel to me.
I then repented of my sins,
and asked the Lord Jesus Christ to save me.

And that HE WAS BURIED, and
that HE ROSE AGAIN THE THIRD DAY according to the
scriptures” (1 Corinthians 15:1-4, KJV).
I delivered the gospel message by going door-to-door with
it; by preaching it in the park; by giving it out while
riding the Gospel Float in the parades; and by putting
together Bible Study Courses that would be shipped around
How about YOU?
Are YOU PREPARED TO MEET
“Prepare to meet thy God” (Holy Bible, Amos 4:12b KJV).
“That if thou shalt confess with
thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart
that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
For with the heart man
believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession
is made unto salvation”
(Holy Bible, Romans 10:9-10, KJV).
“Dear Lord Jesus, I do believe
that you are the Son of God; that you are God Almighty in
the flesh, the Creator of heaven and earth.
I do believe that you are
the only Savior; that you died on the cross for me, and gave
your precious blood to pay my sin debt; and then you arose
from the grave the third day.
I do now repent of my sins,
and receive you as my Savior.
Please forgive me, and save
Please raise up my life
from sin and shame, and use it now for your glory.
In Jesus’ name I pray,
I just asked
and I desire to now live for Him.
God wants you to
openly confess Him by
under the water,
and to faithfully attend a Bible-preaching church.
