VETERANS DAY is a time to honor our veterans who have served around the world in defense of our country and our liberties. Our military veterans are our national heroes, and I honor them. I think it is also an appropriate time to honor one of my “heroes”. I am speaking of a veteran of spiritual warfare who has spent his life bringing spiritual freedom to countless persons by the communication of a message of salvation through Jesus Christ.
In my lifetime, I have had many heroes. My Dad was one of them. As it is with the veterans of some of the greatest wars this world has known, the longer I live the fewer of these veteran heroes are still alive.
However, I do have an outstanding hero I want to honor today. John Bueno is a true veteran of spiritual warfare. He is a godly man of character and principles. In addition to these wonderful characteristics, John is one of the most personable, compassionate, and redemptive men I have ever known. He is a prince of a man, with a heart of gold. He has done an outstanding job as the Director of World Missions of the Assemblies of God. He has led us in the battle to save souls all around the world. He has now retired as Director of AGWM. As a boss, he has been the greatest. However, I am even more proud to call him my friend.
John Bueno, you are my hero!
