Ray Waldo is a retired minister with a passion for sharing knowledge, understanding and (if possible), wisdom with everyone he meets. Prior to his retirement, Ray served as a local pastor and as a short-term missionary to Mexico, Kenya, Uganda & the Democratic Republic of Congo (while the country was still in conflict).
Ray holds ministerial credentials with the Church of God (Cleveland) and his current assignment is that of “Technology Evangelist.” He is available to speak & consult with churches or others concerning his specialty of merging technology with ministry.
He graduated from Mississippi State University with a MEd in Educational Psychology, with emphasis in statistics. As a bi-vocational minister, Ray worked in the electronics field and later took a position as a Logistics Planner for the government. He is also an avid technology freak and has professional credentials for Microsoft products and, lately he has become a big fan of Ubuntu Linux.
Ray is also a widely recognized teacher and public speaker. He is currently working on two books that he expects to be published within the next two years. These books are being written online. Follow the development at “James on Trial” and “Eye on the Future – Hand on the Salt.” The Chief Shepherd site (http://chiefshepherd.com) serves ministers on seven continents.
Vivian has tolerated Ray since their marriage in 1964. They have three grown children (who happen to be the most beautiful children ever born) and two grandsons (also perfect). They also have four adopted children at home (all of the canine species but they don’t tell them about it). The 6-member Waldo family resides in a lovely home in one of the most beautiful and peaceful locations in Southern Louisiana. Ray’s description of his life: “I am truly blessed. God is good!”
Is that flowery enough <grin>?
