Family Life Radio

Grace Sight #19 is Family Life Radio.

Family Life Radio has its headquarters in Tuscon, Arizona. It was started by Warren and Char Bolthouse in the late 1960's in Michigan. When I was growing up I listened for many a hour to music and Bible teaching programs on the FM 99.7 Family Life Radio station based in Midland, Michigan. Family Life Radio is a Grace Light because of all the programming that have graced the air waves over the years to the glory of Christ.

Family Life Radio currently has 39 radio stations around the United States. Intentional Living is their flagship radio program and Family Life Radio also hosts Intentional Living conferences. For more information on Family Life Radio visit their website at www.myflr.org.

Special thanks to Family Life Radio. May they faithfully continue sharing the Good News until the return of Christ.

Henry Stokes

Grace Sight #18 is My Paternal Grandfather.

Circa, 1923
Circa, 1985

Henry Thomas Stokes, Sr. is my paternal Grandfather. He is a Grace Light because he was a prayer warrior, personal evangelist, and preacher to the less fortunate. He had a tremendous impact on me.  Grandpa wasn't afraid to speak his mind and he wasn't afraid to let Christ renew his mind.

Henry Stokes was born on December 7, 1903 in Wartrace, Tennessee to Viola Edith Bomar and Thomas Jefferson Stokes. He married Treva Oakley on May 3, 1929. They were married for over 50 years until she passed away in 1980. He would later marry Letha Messervy who also preceded him in death in 1986. He died on December 11, 1995 in Mount Pleasant, Michigan of old age.

Henry Stokes spent his entire working career with the General Motors Company. After his retirement he recommitted his life to Christ and began preaching at the Saginaw Rescue Mission, numerous nursing homes and volunteered with the Gideons and the Salvation Army.

I preached the sermon for his memorial service, the text of which is online at http://stokes.truepath.com/HStokesSermon.html.  The bulletin from that service is also online at http://stokes.truepath.com/HenryStokesMemorialService.html.

I shall never forget the spiritual heritage of my Grandfather Henry Stokes.
