Some of you were made aware of the discovery about my biological father, half brothers and sisters, last winter. I was able to meet with one brother and two sisters in Walnut Ridge, Arkansas. What a wonderful reunion that was for me!
I was never able to see my father or a picture of him during his lifetime. I was led to believe, when I was a child, that he was not alive. However, this picture was forwared to me by one of my brothers. I have an article on the web site titled, The Final Chapter.
I don’t expect this to be of much interest to many of you, but to me it is a great discovery. I would like for you to rejoice with me. I loved my brothers and sisters the first time I met them and spoke with them. They returned that love to me. I regret I never met my father. But, God is so good to me in allowing me to know this family of mine. Also, many of them are saved and know the Lord. Well, GLORY!
Pastor Ken Blue was born in Boswell, Ark. In 1955 he accepted Christ as his Savior. He and his wife Joyce were married in 1955. They have 5 children. He graduated from Midwestern Baptist Bible College in 1969 and started the Open Door Baptist Church in Lynnwood, Wa. where he pastored for 39 years. Because of health issues (ALS) he was forced to resign as pastor. It is his desire to continue to be used of God to help pastors and believers through this ministry.

What a blessing! I see a striking resemblance! Thanks for posting this. I rejoice that you have this treasured picture. Only wish you could have had it long ago. God bless you, Brother Blue!

I know what this would mean to me. I have been trying to get my sealed birth certificate open for several years.
Have done DNA tests. Actually some of these attempts have resulted in some funny stories.
Bottom line is I am happy for you.

We rejoice with you. As pastor Hughes said, the resemblances are striking. I too have only 1 photo of my real dad. I didn’t know him well, but I am glad that I have the picture and the meeting we had when I was a young man.
God bless you pastor, we love you.
I rejoice with you, Bro. Blue!
