Two Gardens

In the beginning of time

A perfect garden was created

With beauty untold

Where sin was not a thing

To be found


In that sinless world

Man and animals harmonized

With nature in a song of perpetual

Purity and joy, as God walked

Among them in the breeze of time


Planted by the hands of God

The Garden of Eden

Blossomed with trees, flowers

Birds and butterflies, too

While a river kept it green


It was a home for Adam

To work it and care for

With a command

You must not eat certain fruit

Or you will certainly die!


Who else had heard it

If not the cunning serpent

With ideas not so good

To confuse and misguide

The mind of man?

I have been committed to teaching the truth of the Word of God beginning with Trans World Radio on Bonaire, N.A and Swaziland, Africa (1969-1980), then through churches in the United States in both English and Portuguese and then through ministry in Israel (2005-2006). This ministry continues through local Bible studies and outreach to the world via the internet. I have written a book about my life from that of an orphan in Brazil to missionary in 5 countries.
