Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst.”
Jesus is the Bread of Life. He is the bread that came down from heaven. Our fathers ate manna in the wilderness and they all died. Jesus is the bread that a man may eat and never die. Believing in His Words and promises, receiving His Body and Blood, we live forever.
We are very excited to announce that the 2016 Higher Things conferences will rejoicing in Jesus being the “Bread of Life.” We will receive His Words. We will eat His Body and drink His Blood. We will live forever.

Note the gray skies at the begining and the nicely clearing blue skies at the end of the walk.
And since it is “Christmas Day”, we’ll finish by the Russian Orthodox Church, as an eagle checks us out.
Makes winter look fun, doesn’t it?
Merry Christmas in January!

So today, while driving through this town again. I made it a mission to stop and take a video of this old beautiful building. It is sad, that such beautiful buildings are falling apart. I wish people would preserve them for the new generations.

Sumner was born October 26, 1922 to Clifford and Mabel Glidden Wemp in Rochester, New York but was quickly moved to Jacksonville, FL due to health problems as an infant. At age 17, having never held a Bible nor heard “Jesus Loves Me this I know…” he experienced his life changing event when he accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and Savior. And often stated, “He had never gotten over it.”
After answering God’s call to ministry, He attended Bryan College then graduated from Howard College, now Samford University in Birmingham AL. He had a BA from Samford University, a Th.M from Dallas Theological Seminary, a D.Min from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, a D.D. from California Graduate School of Theology and a S.T.D, of Sacred Theology from Liberty University.
While attendiung Dallas Theological Seminary in Dallas, TX, he met and later married Celeste Magee Zimmerman, “Angel,” at Scolfield Memorial Church in 1946. They were married and ministered together for 64 years until her death at age 86 in July 2010.
Sumner pastored churches in Dalton, FL, Dothan, AL, Birmingham, AL, Pensacola, FL, and Mt Prospect, IL. In 1961 he joined the faculty at Moody Bible Institute in Chicago IL as Director of Practical Christian Work and began his second career in education with college students. After 9 exciting years at Moody Bible Institute, Sumner was asked to become the President of Southeastern Bible College in Birmingham, AL. In 1969 he was called to be the Pastor of Mt. Prospect Bible Church in Mt. Prospect, IL. Then in 1973 he joined with Dr. Jerry Falwell at newly founded Lynchburg Baptist college, now Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA, to be Vice President of Spiritual Affairs, the spiritual mentor to thousands of students.
Sumner authored many Gospel tracts, and books. His tract, “Your Ticket to Heaven” has been printed in many languages and over a million copies have been circulated worldwide. His best known books include, How on Earth Can I be Spiritual, The Guide to Practical Pastoring, Teaching from the Tabernacle, and Fishing for Men, a book on evangelism which was a collection of the stories of many witnessing experiences. Sumner and Celeste had a great zeal for missions and traveled around the world ministering to thousands on every continent around the world.
The last 10 years he has mentored hundreds of Pastors, Missionaries, and Evangelists while in “retirement,” and has sent out weekly messages of encouragement to thousands, on the internet through his website He was actively involved in his email ministry until August of this year and continued to share the Gospel with the various caregivers and doctors who cared for him the last few months of his life.
Sumner challenged everyone he came in contact with his passion to live life under the influence of the Holy Spirit and to share with everyone you meet the Gospel of Jesus Christ. That Jesus was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, suffered and died a substitutionary death on the cross for all who would accept him and was resurrected. Sumner lived his life with great anticipation of the soon return of Jesus Christ and is now reunited with his Angel in the presence of Jesus in Heaven.
Sumner and Celeste retired back to Dallas, TX in 1990 where he lived until he moved to live with his daughters in Scottsdale, AZ in 2011.
