Dr. Winstons church is where I first got baptized he is one of if not one but many lessons about Christ tand teaches us how to live according to God's Will. He was also the pastor of my father in the faith Apostle George Guilford who I loved and felt I was being guided in the ministry he was an amazing friend, father and Pastor. He is still greatly missed. I just feel so blessed that he keeps pairing me, a sinner under some of the greatest men of God to help me grow.

Dr. Winston is of the most wealthiest on the planet, "he uses faith as his currency". As I'm learning from Bill W. Winston, It's not the amount of money one has ($200) that counts, It's the amount of "faith". Inflation decreases money in worth/value while building ones faith thru trust. Rom. 1:17 says "from faith/rung to faith/rung". Earthly wealth has it's limit, with kingdom currency i.e. faith, there is no end. God bless you Dr. Winston for not keeping all of God/Jesus' wealth wisdom to yourself.
