Abner Smith is a 24 year retired veteran of the United States Regular Army. During his tenure in the military as a Senior Personnel Sergeant and Detachment First Sergeant, Personnel accountability was a critical function to him. During the processing of monthly Unit Status Reports, if the numbers were off by one person, he could not rest or concentrate, until that number was resolved. Sometimes it would take hours and days to resolve. Some suggested just putting a number in there and forwarding the report, but his conscience would not allow it. He had to be able to rest with a sound mind, that the numbers he reported to his Battalion Commander was accurate. Could that be one of the things the Lord seen in him, to give him a task of this magnitude, of combining his life story? Abner Smith is eternally grateful, to our Saviour Jesus Christ, for giving him such an important task. As a young man his grandfather always taught him about Jesus Christ. He attended church periodically at Adair Street Church of Christ in Valdosta, GA. As a teenager, a friend name Steve Newton, invited him to South Lee Street Seventh Day Adventist Church. He told him as a lure, that we have a lot of pretty young women that attend, however, to Abner surprise; there were mainly elderly women in attendance. Ironically, that attendance was a life changing situation for him, because the Pastor name Lewis Edwards taught about Jesus Christ so vivid, that Abner returned again and again, to hear more about Jesus Christ, and eventually got baptized. Abner has always kept Jesus uppermost in his heart and mind every since.
