“Who Was Herbert W. Armstrong.” Allnea is replying to the following comment made by George:
Hi: My Ex-wife and I were in the WWCG for ten years from 1964-1974, I was “baptized” by ‘ole Joe Tkach. I have ben affected all through my life by the experience. I’m now 74 and have tried to work with members as the church was falling apart in the ’90’s. It was a great education and my present wife who was a Nun and I do not attend any church! Finding more and more people leaving their churches in droves. We need to go back to “Where one or two are gathered in my name, I will be with you”! Hope to hear from some former members, especially from the Chicago Land area!
