Just One Look

Simon, Peter, I mean

Under Jesus’ scrutiny

Was found denying Him-

The very essence of Truth

“I do not know the Man.”


A spokesman in his time

Failed his best friend

Not once, not twice, but thrice

In one simple line,

I do not know the Man!


A witness of His power

Miracles, resurrections

Lazarus, one of three

Peter was there to see

The blind seeing


The lame walking

Leprous healed

Thousands being fed

At the words of Jesus

Peace, be still


The sea obeyed

Transfigured before his eyes

The Son of God Himself revealed

But without a doubt,

These, Peter forgot.

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.
