I met Pastor Simmons in 1974. We preached on the radio together, did missionary work together, preached and taught seminars together, and we celebrated Passover of Jesus together. A picture of he and his wife at our 2010 Passover is here in the photo gallery. He built many churches in the Philippines, some of which I have preached in. He purchased motorcycles for several pastors. He helped the Christian School in support of students and teachers and gave large amounts of money to build the new school building. He was the missionary adviser for Missionary James Childs for the past 15 years. With his hands he worked and with his heart he gave. I am a witness. Today his hands have ended their labor. There is no one to replace him. I will miss this Apostolic no nonsense preacher. Pastor Reckart and all the Reckart family send our warm sympathy to his surviving children and grandchildren.
