My Dad a Tower of Strength

Norwegian immigrants Ingvar and Anne Solbrekken raised a large family on a Saskatchewan farm. As a former soldier, mechanic and businessman, my Dad quickly adapted to farming with a team of horses and some cattle in 1927, and provided well even through the 'dirty thirties'. After receiving the Holy Spirit Baptism and a miracle healing of his gall bladder through the Radio ministry of Oral Roberts, he became a human dynamo and spiritual leader in our family. If God had not visited my Dad in such an outstanding way, I do not believe that I would have returned to my covenant with God in my Lutheran Catechism at 15, or be in Christ's Holy Ministry today. I give glory to God and thanks to my mother and father for their superb examples of genuine born again, Spirit filled Christianity!
