Our Son, Craig

It has been three years since our son Craig graduated to heaven. He left us with an unusual legacy, “The Little Lost Pup”, which was written in Chino State Prison.

It is a must read. The book is beautifully illustrated by Wycliffe artist, Bertie Knowlton, who was miraculously healed from crippling arthritis. Craig’s testimony, “once lost but now found” and “a mother’s grief” are the book’s themes.

The book is endorsed by Dr. George O. Wood, President Emeritus of Assemblies of God and Terry Meeuwsen, co-host of the 700 Club. Several thousand have been distributed to prison inmates.

Perhaps you have had the privilege of visiting Rancho de Cristo, our drug rehab center in Baja. Hans Benning built a chapel with funds from the memorial gifts for Craig.

Hans is pouring out his life for these men. Then men constructed a music conservatory in the Ensenada jail (a first). There Tito Quiroz and others are pouring out their lives to those who are incarcerated, bringing restoration through music.

It is not unusual for people to experience the presence of God the Holy Spirit in this chapel.
