"The lord said about a devout Jew named Paul, 'for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles . . ." I am blessed to be able to say the same about a devout Gentile named Amy Downey, 'for she is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before my people, the children of Israel.' The calling and passion to share Messiah Jesus placed in the heart of a small town Texas Baptist pastor's daughter is a miracle. I have known Amy for almost twenty years and her life is a testament to her Lord. She is diligent, driven, and dedicated to her Savior and Messiah. This work is an example of her faith and life's work. I am simply excited in having an opportunity to share in this worthy endeavor and to have Amy as a friend and co-laborer in Christ."
