One of the early Navigators from the 1930’s has a birthday today. Jim Downing was sixth in a line of godly men reached by the visionary founder, Dawson Trotman. He continues to set an example of faithfulness and love for God and His Word. Following a career in the US Navy, Jim served on the staff of the Navigators, was a frequent conference speaker, and traveled extensively worldwide teaching the Bible and encouraging missionaries on every continent.
“And what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men[a] who will be able to teach others also.” 2 Timothy 2:2 (ESV)
Happy birthday, Jim.
