The first call from God came to him in 1967 in Rotterdam, (Netherlands) but he was running like Jonah away for 35 years of his calling before he started to obey the Lord our God, to fulfill the position he is in now.
(Jon 1:3) But Jonah rose up to flee unto Tarshish from the presence of the Lord, and went down to Joppa; and he found a ship going to Tarshish: so he paid the fare thereof, and went down into it, to go with them unto Tarshish from the presence of the Lord.
