"AFTER BECOMING ONE OF THE 12 PEOPLE IN HISTORY
TO WALK ON THE MOON, CHARLIE DUKE NEEDED SOMETHING THAT THE WORLD COULDN’T OFFER."

 

 ASTRONAUT, CHARLIE DUKE

One Nation Under God. My Powerful Walk of Faith.

I marveled at the exploits of the space pioneers who broke through barriers and launched the Space Age. I became an Air Force pilot and later was accepted into the Apollo program, always drawn to the next adventure. But I found that no matter what I accomplished, I could never have enough. I had literally gone as far as anyone else in human history. I went to the moon and walked on the surface for three days. Where was I going to go from there? What could possibly be my next destination? 

 

The world says that when you chase your dreams and fulfill your destiny, you’ll find happiness and fulfillment, but that wasn’t true of me at all. I was struggling with my marriage, my children, and just about everything that mattered in my life. I saw others who had what my wife and I needed - peace.

 

As I was introduced to the truth about who Jesus is and what He did for us, I realized that I had a decision to make: Was I going to believe it? So I began a new journey, and the more I explored, the more I found what I’d been looking for all along.
