Harry F. Avery

Legacy. Everbody leaves one but not all of them are worth following. Will yours be?

Last week I traveled to New Brunswick to be with family and to celebrate the life of my Grandfather, Harry Avery "Pa". Pa was 88 when he passed away.

A rarity, Pa accepted Christ when he was 62. His was a radical transformation. Drop all sin, start studying God's Word, and share Christ at every opportunity. If you met him he would stretch out his hand and say, "Praise the Lord". Your response would tell him how he needed to approach the conversation!

He never had a driver's license. He was a self-employed carpenter. He left behind his wife of 62 years (she's 92 and probably at mid-life!) He was a man who fell in love with Jesus and never looked back.
