My name is Beverly and I retired from the Gwinnett Justice and Administration Center, where I met Chaplain David Burgher in the hall years before I retired in 2010. Even though I worked there, during my lunch one day, I had the privilege of having Chaplain David pray for me in the hall. At the time I didn’t know him. I thank God for the opportunity of knowing him now and how God uses him through prayer. He is a godly man of the Word. Since I have retired I met Chaplain at a meeting we both attended. He extended an invitation for me to meet him and others at the courthouse (as he would say the hospital) for intercessory prayer — that was another new beginning for me. It is a joy to be in his presence and see how God uses him to touch people’s lives. It is like no other person I know, his way of reaching people at the jail and courthouse as he shares a spirit of hope with them.
