One of the most faith- and joy-filled people whom I had the pleasure of interviewing recently, died last night. Johnny Ray Davis, 29, was part of my Christmas story about families who bought their first homes through the Building on Higher Ground project in Allendale.
Johnny Ray met me at the door with a huge smile. He was excited about the home and even more excited that he was recently baptized a Christian. In August, he got sick and lost the use of his legs during a four month hospital stay. But that couldn't crush his spirit. "I don't need nothing but my life and God," he said.
