He has an ability to look ahead
Hanne Marit Bjørgaas
I am very grateful for the book that has been written about my father. First of all, we are grateful to Jenny and Steve Chang for making the book project possible through their generous sponsoring.
Being his daughter, I know many of the stories from previously, but the author has made it possible to understand how all the pieces fit together in a story about trust, faith in God and looking at each individual person he encounters with the eyes of our Lord Jesus. The infinite value of each individual person is a fundamental issue, and also the basis on which he has built his life and work.
Many of the stories about hardship and difficulties have been unknown to me, simply because these things have not been important to my father, he has an ability to look ahead, for new opportunities, new doors opening up when other doors close, instead of ending up in bitterness and resentment.
To me it has also been striking to see how the stories that have made the deepest impact on people, are those where my father has acted more or less on impulse, because he has seen the need in the eyes of the individual- maybe this is something many of us can learn from.
I appreciate the book showing a realistic picture of my father, including his shortcomings, which enables us to identify with many of the situations that are described in the book. I also know that my father spends time in devotion and prayer every morning, and this is where he corrects his life against the standards of God, and where he receives strength for each day.
Thanks again for making this possible.
