This is a tale of strength and courage and forgiveness. Throughout his tragic, inspiring, courageous life, David has faced obstacles since birth that would stagger many. Like Paul in 2 Corinthians 3:25, David has been through injustice, prejudice, beatings, attacks from behind, betrayal, and mocking. He is a man with a college education with a BA degree. He attended seminary for three years and is a Bible scholar, but because he has CP, he has been trapped since birth in his own body. He cannot get a job though he is qualified. Yet he is no victim. He gives thanks! Like Paul with the thorn in his flesh, David endures with dignity. He is Christ’s vessel, and he shines. It is a privilege to call him friend. It has been an honor to transcribe his journey.
