Our First Memory of Brother Blair
We visited Rehoboth Ranch for the second time in the Spring of 1988, our hearts full of deep troubling questions. We were having such an intense conversation with Bro. Tony Salmeri on the porch of the big building that surroundings faded away until a movement caught my eye. At dusk, to the left of where we were sitting, I saw a man’s silhouette. He walked up the steps and sat in a chair slightly in back of us. We and Bro. Tony continued our conversation. After a good while, the man quietly got up and walked back down the stairs into the waning light.
We never knew until several years later that that man was Bro. Blair, but by then we had come to know him ourselves.
Unobtrusive. Caring. Concerned. Overseeing. Wondering how these pilgrims were receiving the Word of God from Bro. Tony. Trusting God in Bro. Tony. I am sure, praying for us.
Our lives have been forever changed by this man’s honor for God and his love for God’s people. We will carry forward the baton of faith that he has firmly placed in our hands to run the race God has set before us. Thank you Brother Blair
