    A man not easily forgotten because of his love for God and others, his love for fun and his family. It was a blessing to have met you so many years ago and have you and Sis Rainwater as guests in our home so many times. And yes, that was some of the toughest roast beef we’ve ever had! 😀

    The word Thankful comes to my mind when we just received the news of brother rainwaters going home. So many memories and stories I can recall. Brother rainwater God has been so good to you. Folks this man of God is a walking miracle. What a powerful testimony. I appreciate all of the messages I have heard from the ministry of this man.
