loss of his wife, Betty, leaving him as a single father with eleven children. Yet,
Dr. Grey pioneered the Church of God in nine African nations, reestablished it

and history in writing, I
have humbly attempted to do so. My prayer is that this
will bring glory to Jesus Christ and edification to many.”
