Buck was fifteen and had failed in the fifth grade. His one goal in life was to turn sixteen so he could quit school. His father had died when Buck was young, and now he was on the downward spiral. Then he went to a revival. What started out as a prank turned into something that would change his life.
At the time of this writing, Rev. Lewis Glen Smith is eighty years old and living in Frankfort, Indiana. After pastoring the same church for fifty years, he felt the need to step down. His wife and helpmate of fifty years had Alzheimer's Disease and required a lot of care. He remained faithfully by her side until her death in 2001.
He feels privileged to have traveled around the world, visiting mission fields and preaching to different congregations. His family will never forget the time he traveled with Bro. Robert Brock to visit Papua New Guinea. On the way back home to the states, Rev. Smith sat in his plane seat with his heart bubbling. He remembered everything God had done for him, and how God had taken a "nobody" and used him around the world. He told us, "As I was thinking about the goodness of God, and everything He had done for me, I couldn't keep my seat any longer."
Rev. Smith stood to his feet on that airplane and started to testify. He told everyone on the plane just how good God is. When we heard, none of us were surprised. I think about how hard it is to get people to testify and how excited he is about his faith. I'm proud to be his daughter.
