“Return to Glory” is what Mr. Peoples teaches to men.
Here is some of the information he shared on the radio show:
His mother was told he would never be able to compete in athletic events or be able to communicate effectively. Due to his umbilical cord being wrapped around his neck, and having having had been rescued from the womb at 4 months.
Spending 5 months in the hospital. The doctor also explained to his mother the right hemisphere of his brain was dead. But mom Peoples knew the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob had the final say. She took him to see a local evangelist by the name of Oral Roberts. Rev. Roberts stated that her son would baffle the science the doctors had spoken about him her son.
With that being said, Coach Peoples went on to graduate from ASU Arizona State University and become the world’s fastest man from 1973-78, establishing records to this day have yet to be broken. In 1973 he ran 440 yard dash electronic time 45.11. The fastest 4×4 relay split 43.1 seconds which is the fastest in NCAA relay history. He won 2 Gold medals in the 4×400 Panam games 1975 and 1979. He was also 2 times National champ 400m USA track and field.
He concluded by quoting Apostle Paul, he considers it all (his gold metals and trophies) rubbish now. He buried them all in the casket with his mother, showing no sign of his accomplishments in his own home. That if he could in some way be a part of helping mankind return to glory completing the one true race God had assigned to him. This would be the record he would truly cherish.
Is there anything to hard for God!?
