Another part of my past is in heaven!Just read on Facebook Bro. Johnny Colsten graduated to Heaven this morning (Oct 22, 2020)
My prayers go out to Mrs. Colsten and their children and grandchildren.
I would love to know how many hospital visits, weddings & funerals he did in his lifetime.Another part of my past is in heaven!
All those years reading the Scriptures for Bro. Hyles and working at "The old church downtown."
What a blessing Brother Colsten was.
I would love to know how many hospital visits, weddings & funerals he did in his lifetime.
I venture to say it may very well be a lifetime record for any one minister.
I respected Bro. Colsten and enjoyed hearing him. Bro Moffitt is a good guy too, but let's get real for a moment. Those men where just doing what was assigned to them. Neither of them had anything to do with the salvation of any of those they dunked. Well, maybe a little harsh. Maybe they knew 1%. So there's a "record" for that? Standing in water, quoting and dunking. Over and over again. How many duplicate/triplicate's did they dunk?Another lifetime record?.....I wonder if there's ever been a Pastor to have baptized more people than Bro Johnny?.....
When the Fisk's moved to accept a pastorate ('78 or '79), Bro Johnny took Bro Fisk's duty of baptizing; he baptized all of the converts for a number of
years, and then he and Bro Moffitt shared the duties for the next 30 years, I'd guess.
