It would be hard to imagine two more different people regarding spiritual history and background than my parents. Coming from an Italian immigrant family steeped in Roman Catholicism, my mother had been serving in church ministry her entire adult life. My father, on the other hand, was from a nominally Protestant Christian background and had very little interest in church until adulthood, when life circumstances caused him to seek God.
They each arrived in Florida from two distinctly different directions. My mother was specifically sent by God from the northeast to start a ministry, while my father was sent by a multi-national company where He worked when a construction project in India was temporarily shut down by the government there.
