At the age of four he memorized
all the Books of the Bible.
At the age of five he taught
himself to read.
At the age of nine, in the fourth
grade he recited from memory "The Sermon On The Mount. " Holding his
mother's Bible in his hand his voice rang out clear and confident throughout
the Assembly Hall.
when he was twelve he told his
mother that he wanted to be baptized." I want to declare my faith."
At fifteen he led his church
congregation in an Easter morning sunrise prayer. Then at 9:45 taught a Sunday
school class and then took Holy Communion during the regular service.
In his "teens he was a 1
ifeguard at Lowell Park,along the wild and rough Rock River. And saved seventy
seven people from drowning. when he was recovering from the attempted
assasination on his life, he received a beautiful letter from one he had saved.
It read: "I met you in the '20'5 in Lowell Park. Do you remember the good
times we had in the '20'5. You were seventeen years old then and everyone
called you "Duch" .Please get well soon. We need you to save the
country--remember all the lives you saved at Lowell park."
Deeply religious, he prayed
often. Before a high school football game he prayed. In college he did the
same. Later in life,as governor of California and President of the United
States he sought guidance from the God he loved.
And his prophecies rivalled those
of the ancient Biblical ones, prophesying the end of communisim in Russia years
before it happened.
President Ronald Wilson Reagan
changed the country; changed the world.
