Gene, through these experiences has found the Lord Jesus Christ. Mr. Thornton has had a unique life of God communicating to him. First, Gene was growing up a normal child in New York. He was a lucky one to have both his mother and father. At the age of eight Gene and his family moved to Virginia. At first Gene, known as Mookie, thought this was a terrible move. Mookie later learned he loved Virginia a lot better than New York. He liked less traffic and more open grass to play in. Also, he enjoyed picking and eating apples fresh from the trees in their front yard. Then, while growing up Mookie sold drugs. He didn’t know these actions would later influence his little brother.
