John 12:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone.

Beginning in 2008 the vision and bible school that God so graciously gave Wade Taylor beginning in 1968 came to an abrupt end, falling into the ground and dying.

We now wait for God to raise up and bring forth His seed of promise in another, that the vision fail not.

Ok Lord
Milford Kirkpatrick

When I first came to the Lord, I said "OK, Lord" and I meant it. By His grace, through all my life, I have continued to say, OK, Lord.

My salvation experience was quite dramatic. At age 15, I was steeped in sin, as my parents were not saved and I had never been exposed to the Gospel. Many times, I would come home after a night of pleasure, lay my head on the pillow and say, "is this all there is to life?"

One day, I was doing the chores alone on my father's farm in Canada. I had just finished and was leaning on a hayfork, when I suddenly became God-conscious. The sun had set and the stars were brightly shining as beautiful white clouds floated by. I thought within myself, "what a beautiful night to be alive."

Suddenly, I became aware of the fact that God had made all these things, and there came within me a deep longing to know God. Then three questions appeared in my mind. The first was, "When I die some day, will all be over?" I looked at my dog, Mickey, and thought, "I will not die like him, there must be something more, a hereafter." Then I thought, "If this is so, am I ready for this time?" Within myself, I knew that I was not.

The second question was, "I wonder if the Bible that rests on the shelf above the kitchen door is the road map from earth to heaven?" It seemed that a hand was placed on my heart, and suddenly, I knew that it was.

The third question came as I looked up into that beautiful sky. I felt that the Lord was listening and I asked, "God, can a sinner like me know you, and be ready for heaven?" Then it was God's turn to speak: I heard Him say audibly by the hearing of my ear, "Son, give me your heart." I was hearing the most loving voice I have ever heard.

I replied back, "OK, Lord." The moment I said this, I felt as though a ton of weight lifted from my shoulders. I felt so light on my feet that I dropped the hayfork and ran around the yard as fast as I could go.

I felt the call to ministry as soon as I was saved, and I had an urge to tell others. So I began to speak to my brothers and sisters, then to my father and mother. They were deeply impressed by the change that had taken place in my life, and within two years they were all saved. From that time, the Lord has used me in ministry around the world.

I prayerfully trust that my saying "OK" to God will put an OK in your heart to go all the way with Him.

"Only one life, it soon will pass. Only what's
done for Jesus will last.
