Lester Sumrall worked to advance the gospel for a staggering 65 years. This giant of Pentecostal circles never saw himself that way, preferring to steamroll through projects God had for him. From his (hilarious) beginnings as a teenage preacher staring at a roomful of bemused farmers, to his final work as director of a global outreach, Sumrall lived with no regrets. This look at his life is by turns funny, poignant, and inspiring. Christians of all backgrounds will enjoy the passion and power of this most remarkable life. He worked to the last to feed souls and bodies, and leaves the ministry and legacy to his three sons, Stephen, Frank and Peter Sumrall.
