An ordinary hero is a person who quietly (pastors don’t qualify) and faithfully serves. These are people we should honor. Do you know any ordinary heroes? Send them to me at chris [at] theredbrickchurch.org
This ordinary hero was in the church where my wife grew up in Algona, IA, and he was never a partner with Dean Martin. Nita writes:
A person that was very special in my life was Jerry Lewis a man in my home church in Algona, Jerry was always an encouragement and a happy and positive person. He and his wife Ruth were always concerned about your spiritual condition and would ask how they could pray for you. Whenever you would go to church you would always see Jerry and Ruth there towards the front of the church encouraging others. A Sunday never went by without Jerry giving me a hug and saying "how are you sugar". You could tell that he loved the Lord. I pray that I may be the type of encouragement to a young person in my church!! Praise the Lord for faithful servants of the Lord. As I write this I am crying with such thankfulness to the Lord for putting Jerry and Ruth Lewis in my life. Because of their influence I am a different person.
