JUST 9? : A Story of the Visible Manifestations of Our Miracle-Working God
Colleagues called him, “Wheeler Dealer.”
He added, “For the Lord!”
Some said, “It's impossible. It can't be done!”
Harrison would say, “Don't tell me it can't be done. I can try!”
This is a biography of Harrison Hayes Pike based on visible manifestation of our miracle-working God in the life of an imperfect man called to serve Him, written as I have witnessed them. It's the story of an ordinary person.
As a pastor, then as a missionary: first in South Brazil, then pioneering for the Foreign Mission Board (International Mission Board) of the Southern Baptist Convention in Angola (then Portuguese West Africa, now the Republic of Angola), and “seconded” (loaned) to the Baptist Union of South Africa, he completed his thirty-three-year career by returning to Brazil to teach in the Equatorial Baptist Theological Seminary. Since 1990, he has been retired in Bella Vista, Arkansas.
His mantra has always been: “God is so good.”
At ninety-one years of age, he still sees God acting in his history.
Along with their children, the author, June Summers Pike, his wife of seventy-two years, believes they have a story to tell.
