house not made with hands, eternal in the Heavens." II
Words can't express how much I thank God for the
privilege of sitting and studying under such a man as
the late Rev. Sim Walton. He was instrumental in the
saving of thousands of souls and
has touched countless thousands of lives. He was a 6' 8"
powerful, Spirit filled preacher with a gentle touch.
The Mt. Calvary family is thankful to the Lord for using
Rev. Walton to organize this Church. We loved him but we
know that he is rejoicing in the presence of Jesus.
"Pop, I miss you and will never forget all that you have
done for me."
