Overview

Together they would live a life of influence neither could have imagined on their own.

Through her constant love, support, prayers, and personal ministry, Ruth helped shape Billy's tireless work for the kingdom of God.

Thoroughly enjoyed this book with lots of insights into the lives of this couple, and the integrity and closeness to God and one another that exemplies why they stood the test of time. And every ministry team should have a “Modesto Manifesto”! Read it and see why.
