    I remember Rev. Mowery as a child, preaching at Calvary Church of the Bible Covenant on the CFC campus. His ministry reached my young heart and I asked Jesus to come into my heart during that revival. I remember standing that Sunday morning to give my testimony and I was so small no one saw me. Rev. Mowery spotted me and gave me permission to speak. He made a difference in my life so many years ago and I will always remember him fondly.

    My prayers and condolences to all the family. Some of my earliest memories were of Bro. and Sis. Mowery coming to visit in Spearsville and Bro. Mowery and Dad taking me and going to Amity cattle auction. I always loved, admired, respected and appreciated 2 of the nicest people I ever met: Bro. and Sis. Mowery. May God richly bless the family and may you carry on the great spiritual heritage of Grandpa and Grandma Mowery.
