Thank you for the humbling experience of being invited to comment on the life walk of a brother in Christ like John. My first reaction on reading of his journey was joy. A deep heart joy at encountering a reaffirmation that God, all knowing, ever faithful, really is always there beside us in the materialistic 21st century – no matter what comes our way.
Secondly the pleasure of glimpsing the heart of one who truly seeks to walk and war and love his way through life just as David, Moses and Abraham did in a intimacy with God. No wonder his wife loves him and is devoted to him! Every woman longs to be loved by a man seeking to live his life totally in the place where God calls him – ‘The place where his deep gladness and the worlds deep hunger meet’ – to paraphrase Frederich Buechner.
His children also are privileged to have a father like John. One who considers it ‘an honour to be wounded in the service of the Lord’ (Rick Joyner) After all, the only safe place in this world at war is where John seeks to walk, close to God’s heart – in total intimacy with his Lord, in total dependence and total obedience. Be encouraged John. He is pleased with you.

This is such a wonderful story, written in your inimitable style with such gusto, humour and humility. As an MBA myself, I have always wondered how on earth you managed to start a bank, when you had no banking experience. But my own quite extensive experience of miracles is nothing to yours, as your story reminds me.

Thank you for sending me Business with God. I read it just after Christmas and laughed out loud several times at your humour while rejoicing in your humility and obedience to the Lord. I love the story line and the Christian message. Somehow I feel the story is not over yet!
