LeTourneau Doing Well In Both

R. G. LeTourneau told Forbes magazine, “I like to do two things. One is to design machines, turn on the power, and see them work. The other is to turn on the power of the Gospel and see it work in people’s lives.”

He did pretty well in the first department. At his death he held over 200 patents. One of his monster earth-moving machines, weighing 200,000 pounds, can cut a thirty-five-foot swath through a jungle, knocking down trees five feet in diameter and chewing them up.

He did well in the second department, too. Besides giving up to ninety percent of his income to Christian work, he would fly anywhere to speak for Jesus Christ. He is the only man to have been president of both the Christian Businessmen’s Committee International and the Gideons International.
