Jim Downing Turns 104 Today!

Today Jim Downing, Navigator #6 and survivor of the attack on Pearl Harbor, turns 104. I’ve had the privilege to work with him more since I joined the communications department last year. He’s an incredible man of God with a fascinating life story.

This photo is of Jim, me, and my son Benjamin at a book signing this past November. Jim Downing is the author of “The Other Side of Infamy” in which he recounts his experiences at Pearl Harbor and what it means to follow Jesus in the most dangerous of times.
