Description

Once you hear this new book, you can't go back to your old life. Texas businessman Mike Fechner had it all. Money. Investments. Prestige. Until he did the unthinkable. He sold his company and poured his life's earnings into a ministry for the poor. With a strong faith in God at his core, this millionaire-turned-missionary envisioned a long future serving the urban Dallas poor and the people of poverty-stricken Africa. Then came the unimaginable. Mike was diagnosed with terminal cancer. What Mike did and how he lived as his life ticked away provide lasting lessons that will prove more valuable to you than any investment, any estate, or any social standing could ever be. And it just might drastically change how you live your life from this day forward.

Professional reviews

"Narrator Tim Gregory delivers a son's moving account of his "millionaire-turned-missionary" father with clarity and sensitivity. Mike Fechner, the father, was a wealthy white Texas businessman when he was inspired by a poor and humble black woman to change his life. He sold his vast holdings and used the funds to cofound the urban ministry H.I.S. Bridgebuilders. Then the unthinkable happened: Fechner was diagnosed with terminal cancer and given a year to live. Gregory uses an animated voice and varied pace and tone to capture the father's vision and renewed sense of purpose to serve others from the unique perspective of a self-described "dead man walking." Listeners will find encouragement, faith, and hope in the amazing story of a man who had to learn what it meant to lose his life to really find it. G.D.W. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
