                By Ken Blue Unobserved, and of no interest to those who never knew, That eternal business was discussed on Forty-Fourth Avenue. A little band that prayed for land, the year of seventy-two, Gave God a reason, it was the season to trust and to do. The owners replied, and we complied, with witnesses: two. What began continues the plan, on Forty-Fourth Avenue. Sacrifice, a will to work, visions Satan could not subdue; The little band that stood on the land, into the hundreds grew. Every Sunday, from far and near, visitors come two by two. At invitation time, you will find sinners who say, “I do”. Hundreds surrendered to serve at home, and some across the blue. The question is, would you respond, “Here I am”, if He called you? Miracles persist at Open Door, as we stay faithful and true. Windows of heaven remain open, on Forty-Fourth Avenue.

    God smiled down on that little chicken farm on “Fortyfourth Avenue”.

    I remember that day! That Miracle has spread much farther than 44th Ave. and through several generations now. Bless you Pastor for being the leader you have been. You gave us a vision and faith. What more was needed but GOD’s blessing.

    Loved the poem! God gave you and the church a big vision, and then He proceeded to make that dream come true! Awesome God we have!

    Wonderful poem! I was blessed by my visit at Open Door back in 2006. I have many of your sermons on discs that have been a source of growth in my Christian life. Your ministry is such a blessing, which continues to be used by God through your blog.
