Being godly is not just an adjective for these men; it is in fact, a way of life that involves prayer, dedication, and humbleness. He should look to the model of Christ and follow his example. He is diligent and puts others before himself and is not afraid to get his hands dirty.He should lay down his life for the sake of others, and pursue, initiate, protect, and lead in whatever areas of life he is involved.” Preston Smedley, California “A man of God is someone who loves God.

Travis and Leah, who have been married close to 20 years, met while attending the same six-week missions organization training."Telling our story never gets old," Leah says, smiling."It feels like it wasn't that long ago." When Leah, a national of Singapore, first got to know Travis, who was 10 years her junior, she was attracted to him, but "I tried to tell myself it wouldn't work because of the age difference.I fought those affections like crazy."
