DOWNEY, Calif. (BP) -- Harold Neal, 83, a retired airplane builder and bivocational pastor, as well as the caregiver for his wife of 66 years, has found "what the Lord wants me to do" in leading a Bible study in his garage for 15 years.
Says Neal, matter-of-factly, "What else could I do that could please the Lord? Teaching is God's calling. I can't do anything else. If I can't teach or preach the Word of God, I think I might as well go on to be with the Lord."
Through the years, the class, attended by 8 to 12 people each week, has studied much of the Bible verse by verse. Neal produces all the teaching materials himself, from detailed outlines of each passage to large charts, maps and timelines. Some students in the class have amassed literally years' worth of Bible outlines at their fingertips. Read More
