I think a primary responsibility any author must face is to tell you a story of human experiences. This I have attempted to do in "Great Things He Has Done." This is a collection of stories from individuals who suffered tragedies, griefs, and difficulties in childhood that many adults never experience in a lifetime. How tragic that over three million children suffer abuse and neglect in America each year. It is to this multitude of abused and neglected children I dedicate this book.


The life and ministry of Jim Browning and the ministry to children by Oklahoma Baptists have been intertwined for 44 years. In 1954 Brother Browning heard the Macedonian call to cross the Red River from Texas to become Superintendent of the Baptist Children's Home in Oklahoma City. The rest of the story is a rich history of unselfish service to children, parents, and the Baptists of Oklahoma. Indeed, few have invested more in the lives of homeless and hurting children than Jim Browning.
