Voices soar in sweet sounds of proud praise
At the other end of the spectrum was 92-year-old Jess Harper from Mahalia, Texas. During World War II, Harper was a flight engineer on a bomber in the European Theater of Operations. On his 43rd mission, his airplane was shot down and he spent 11 months in a German prisoner of war camp.
“I lost a few pounds,” he told me with a sly grin on his face.What he didn’t lose was his faith in his Creator and his joy of singing praises to that same Creator. Harper took his turn in front of the more than 200 singers, unashamed of showing his love through song of his Savior.
