One couple’s obedience to follow God’s will resulted in thousands of people coming to the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Savior.  There are untold numbers of men and women who are serving the Lord as pastors, missionaries, teachers, and Christian workers through the obedience of that couple.  There are also second, third, and fourth generation Christians and servants of the Lord because of that one couple’s obedience. My wife and I are two of those, reached through the bus kid.  We had no church background and would have probably never gone to a church had not a church been led to send out some buses to bring adults, teenagers, and children to church.  We were saved, baptized, and surrendered to be missionaries through the ministry of missionaries Robert and Diantha Knutson, BBFI missionaries to Hawaii and the ministry Lanakila Baptist Church.  Because of the Knutsons influence in our lives we had the privilege of serving as BBFI missionaries to England for 20 years.  And there are many others.  We all feel indebted to the Knutsons and bid Aloha and Mahalo to our pastor Dr. Robert Knutson.  We are all eternally grateful for your ministry.
