Who's Your Hero?
By Pastor Jon Haakana

Did you have any heroes growing up? Perhaps one of the heroes created for TV, movies or illustrated in comic books – Superman, Batman, Captain America just to name a few. We were fascinated by those heroes because we liked the idea of someone defeating the enemy and helping those who couldn’t help themselves.

What about real-life heroes? Who do you look up to? I looked up to my Dad, not just because he was my Dad, but for what he modeled for me. He had incredible faith, even in the midst of trial. He had the faith and courage to share Jesus with whomever he met – with people he worked with, our neighbors, strangers and even to a few Jehovah Witnesses and Mormons.

My father had heart disease since he was a young man. Three years after having a heart valve replaced, he came down with an infection that affected his heart. I took him to the Emergency Room with a 104 degree temperature. While waiting for an X-ray, instead of worrying about his own health, he cared for his technician who was going through a nasty divorce. He shared Jesus with her. One week later, he saw Jesus face to face. He was truly my hero, and will always be my role model.
