news_l6.gif SERTOMAN OF THE DAY:     

Sertoman of the Day:   The ever entertaining Doug Harder inlightened us again today as to his background and achievments. Robert Douglas Harder (alias Doug) fittingly was born on a Labor Day. Sept 22, 1937 in an oil camp in Houston, Texas, near the Rio Grande River. He didn’t stay there long enough to get tall. Doug attended grade schools in Louisiana and Missouri and the 5th through 11th grade (minus one year) in Casper, Wyoming. While in the fourth grade, he had Scarlet Fever. He finished high school in Englewood. He attended 21 schools in 20 years (slow learner?).

Doug was in the Army National Guard from 1959 to 1966 and said his squad did a fabulous job of keeping the Commies out of GA. After that, he attended CU and UNC and retired as a Mortgage Broker. He has been a member of Pastor Robinson’s church, Christ Lutheran, for over 49 years and an Elder for 409 years. Shortly after the Katrina disaster, he and Pastor Robinson went down there with a disaster relief team. He said you never want to see such destruction.

Doug has been married to Carolyn since 1963 and they have 4 children and 10 grandkids and 2 great grandkids, one just a couple weeks old. Their oldest son Zach, was a member for a short time.

Doug was brought into the club by Bill Parchen in 1966 and has been president twice and has a Gold coat. He has been on the Foundation Committee and brought in abt 60 members to Sertoma. (way to go Doug)

Program:   Doug played double duty and introduced his guest, Rev. George Naeem.

Founded for the purpose of offering an internet seminary to those who are converting to Christianity from other religions, most often, those of the Muslim religion, BOLM has been a great blessing. Lead by Dr. Rev. George Naeem, a Lutheran pastor, was born in Egypt and worked for many years as a medical physician. He grew up among Muslims and understands Islam. The center of his mission is to bring Jesus Christ to the Muslim world. He is spreading the Gospel through radio messages, BOLM internet, lectures, and mailings. Dr. Naeem has formed an international seminary, teaching Lutheran doctrine which reaches out to students on virtually every continent. The mission of BOLM is to offer bible studies and to help new converts strengthen their faith by answering their questions and providing them with supplies.

Muslims are taught not to question what is written in the Koran and its teachings. In spite of that there are many who are hearing the Gospel for the first time, some from missionaries and some through the broadcasts on BOLM. Lutheran Pastors share lectures and sermons with Pastor Naeem who then translates them into the Arabic language. The numbers of people converting to Christianity are growing every day. Many who seek to hear the Gospel and learn more of Christ are persecuted by their families and other Muslins. Many have been tortured, both those who seek to learn and missionaries who teach.
