Abiding in His Strength

Current Stock:

Gwen Wilkerson had my respect before I ever met her. I was amazed when Dave told me that even as he was giving an altar call for those wanting new birth in Christ at the St. Nicholas Arena, his wife was ready to give birth any minute to their first son, Gary. I was one of the gang members at the arena who was born into the kingdom of God that night... Not long after our conversions, Dave decided to take Israel Narvaez, another gang leader saved at St. Nicholas Arena, and me out to his home in Pennsylvania.....from the moment I first met Gwen, I felt like I was being touched by tenderness and kindness. Without knowing me, she embraced me tightly and thanked God for my salvation, her eyes bright and full of love..... This glimpse into Gwen's life at the inception of Dave's call to the gang members in New York City revealed what would become her ongoing ministry. Many times she faced challenges, surprises, disappointments, and overwhelming situations as Dave's ministry unfolded and expanded. In her own strength, there was no way she could have been prepared. Only God knew what loomed ahead of her. But just as she rose to the challenge of having her home invaded by us, New York City street kids, through His strength she has met these challenges.... Gloria and I are honored to give tribute to one of our heroes - a champion whose life is an example of God's grace in times of adversity. She has drunk deeply from the river of comfort the Holy Spirit has given, and allowed it to flow through her to others. And she has proven that our God "...comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God" (2 Corinthians 1:4).- Nicky Cruz / ® David Wilkerson Publications is a Registered Trademark of David Wilkerson
