I met John Hasty when I taught a creative writing course at a local community center. John became a friend who invited me to his house where he and Ginger demonstrated true Christian faith. Through his and Ginger's friendship, kindness, generosity and fellowship, I was inspired to become a Christian. I had the honor of being baptized by John at the Mountain City Christian Church, where he preached God's Word in Northeast Georgia.
I have traveled the world as an educator, and John was one of the few men I have known who deserved the title 'Man of God'.
He was also successful as a published author.
My deepest condolences to the family at this time of loss.
