Pastor Beall gave a certain kind of hope to many of us in ministry by being such a fine role model.

Pastor Beall will always have a special place in my heart. Several times during my years of illness, he personally visited me in the hospital, despite pastoring a large church and having ministers serving under him who did that.

Pastor Beall was one of my favorite ministers of the 20th century. He was a true pioneer in the Christian area, all because he loved The Lord, a lot, who was also a staple in conquering justice, once and for all. I loved him.

Pastor Beall's message on tv were what interested me enough to become Born Again. He offered so much hope and scriptural blessings. God bless all of you.
