A Story about Vance Havner
By Larry Latta

I have great memories of Dr. Vance Havner.

I first heard him in Memphis, Tn. as a teenager. He brought the Gospel message home to those moments of decision.  A few years later I had the opportunity to go each year to Founders Week at Moody Bible Institute where Brother Vance was a regular conference speaker.

It was ten years later when I was in High Point, NC we had him at our church, Green Street Baptist Church, for a three day revival meeting that I had the opportunity to take him out. Every Friday that he was at home in Greensboro we would go to lunch. This was in the early eighties. He did not drive so I was able to take him to do his shopping also. Getting to pick his brain was the best biblical education anyone could get.
