Are you a terrorist? the officer asked me in broken French/ English through the big smile on his face. I smirked and answered back, I have been accused of that. The smile left his face, and I figured out pronto that my Texas sense of humor was not appreciated, and an African prison could be in my future. This is a story at once simple and complex, and you will find yourself laughing on one page and tearing up on the next. In the alien landscape of west central Africa as a "paramedic"- a wildly limiting title- Britz finds beauty, hope and lessons of love, faith and making a difference. Have a Good Day for Jesus and John Wayne is equally an adventure story, a drama, a black comedy, a comedy comedy and a testimony, and does not allow itself to be returned to its shelf until the reading is done. Again and again and again, the message of God s ever-presence, gentle caring and eagerness to be called on radiates from diverse situations. Richard G. Britz is the quintessential action/ adventure guy. Having a good day for Jesus and John Wayne truly sums up the way he lives. He can be found wandering between Texas and Africa on a regular basis working & practicing his unique style of full contact evangelism. Whether he is at work as a medic, a teacher or a hand, saving souls, fighting death, stamping out disease or building a fence his passion & God s calling on him shines through. He is married with three daughters, two dogs, and calls the hill country of Texas home.
