Forty Year Celebration
Over four decades ago, I married the man you know as Bishop E.W. Jackson. He was a young Marine at the time, and I had no idea that his willingness to fight for our country would continue for a lifetime. He took off the Marine Corps uniform in 1973, but he continued to wear the uniform of a patriot.
The most dramatic turning point for his personal life and character was dedicating his life to God forty years ago this month. That changed everything for the better. That event is more responsible than anything else for him becoming the husband, father, patriot and courageous spokesman we've all come to know and love.
That's why in December of 2016 our church family - THE CALLED - and STAND are celebrating his forty years of walking with God.
My husband has said many times that America is a providential nation, not an accident of human history. His viewpoint is informed by his faith. That's how he managed to graduate from Harvard Law School, but as he loves to say, "I didn't drink the Kool-Aid." In the middle of his law school years, he surrendered his life to Jesus Christ and that made all the difference.
When I have had the chance to travel with him, it is so gratifying to hear others talk about how he inspires them. Well, I can tell you as his wife, what you see is what you get. He inspires because he truly is inspired. He also cares about the American people and the thousands who have encouraged him with their support and friendship. As his wife, I want to thank you as well. I have watched him be attacked, but I have never seen him waiver. I know that is in large part because of people like you. He is committed to never letting you down.
At our local church we are honoring him with testimonies about the impact he has had on the lives of others. I know many of you cannot be here, but you might like to encourage him. Your contribution of $40 would do just that. It's a small token, but it's not the amount, but the heart behind it.
We have always been a grassroots organization, but whether you can afford $400, $4000 or only $4, I know he will be deeply appreciative. [Click here to donate]. If you live in the Hampton Roads area, you already received an invitation to the Forty Year Celebration. We'll be at 943 Canal Drive in Chesapeake on Saturday at 6:00 pm and Sunday at 10 am and 3 pm. We would love to see you.
Thank you for supporting my husband, and God bless you.
