I had been born and reared of upstanding and stable parents of a traditional orthodox Christian denomination.I had never had any particular religious interest, and by age 18 I dropped out of Sunday school and church attendance. And above all, a willingness to confess error when proved, and to confess truth even against my own will.

And the Worldwide Church of God, behind these global enterprises, is altogether UNIQUE on the earth -- practicing, as it does, the revealed ways of the living Creator God, and for the first time in 18 ½ centuries, thundering His all-important Message of the way to World Peace over all continents of the earth.

This entire Work has belied all traditional experience. Yet, I hasten to add, these have not been ways of my devising! And since this is the life story of a man, what led a man who had been unusually successful in the world of mammon, with his energy and drive solely directed toward self-gain and status in the business world, to come to reverse his entire life goal and become dedicated to the things of God?

But this worldwide Work started giving -- (reversing objectives and procedures) with absolutely no financial capital! In magnificence of its campus -- in the tone and character of its buildings and grounds -- the physical setting in which it has produced tone and character in young men and women -- Ambassador College is certainly unique in a world where education has drifted into materialism.

These globe-girding enterprises included the founding and operation of a co-ed college in the field of the liberal arts and humanities. Ambassador has dared to recapture the TRUE VALUES; to restore the most necessary MISSING DIMENSION in knowledge; to become a cultural character-building institution, concerned with moral, spiritual and ethical values as well as with the intellect.

It is the incredible story of something never done before -- never done this way -- a seemingly impossible achievement utterly unique in the world!

By all the criteria of organizational and institutional experience, it simply could never have happened.

I'm sure anyone experienced in the administration of a private-owned college would say: "No one could start to build such a college without money, endowment, government aid, or grant from any foundation, making no appeal to the public for financial support, and build such a college, of outstanding quality and beauty with the most modern facilities, and in so doing gain an enviable financial status recognized by major banks in New York, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, London and Geneva. It started without money -- with four students and eight members of faculty and administration.

There have been no protest marches, no friction between students and faculty and administration, no hippie-type students. These enterprises include the World Tomorrow television and radio broadcast, aired weekly in nearly every market throughout the English-speaking world and in numerous other areas worldwide. The programs are UNIQUE in the broadcasting field, with worldwide impact on MILLIONS!

This Work, further, has been engaged in large-scale archaeological projects in joint-participation with Hebrew University of Jerusalem and with the Japanese government; with other institutions in Syria, as well as cultural and humanitarian projects in Southeast Asia, the Kingdom of Jordan and in Africa.

Yes, truly, this has been "Mission Impossible" -- ACCOMPLISHED!

And still being accomplished in ever-increasing magnitude!
