Absolutely. Listening to his life story was like living through it. Jerry DeWitt's wonderful voice and soft Louisiana accent is great to listen to. Though the ride through his life is emotional, and at times I cried like a child, still I'd be willing to go for that ride again.
The final goodbyes to deceased loved ones, and where he finally recognized the sacrifices his wife made to allow him to do what he felt "called" to do.
I was laughing at some parts, but absolutely sobbing at others. It was a true emotional roller-coaster ride in parts of the book.
I highly, highly recommend the audio version of his book. The fact that it was the author who read the book lent an emotionality that would not have been so strong otherwise. And believe me, that emotionality is strong.
The descriptions were fantastic. I could see and smell the old wood and dated, well-worn and impoverished interiors of many of the homes, hotels and churches that he visited during his ministry. I felt his hunger when they had no money for food. I felt his panic before he went on a plane back to a hostile church. When his heart sunk at what he encountered, mine did as well, right along with each of his descriptions.
It is obvious that this man, Jerry DeWitt, loved humanity and wanted to do everything in his power for others. That he is still doing so and still cares so much, is wonderful testament to his spirit and resiliency.
