    "I thought Apollo 16 would be my crowning glory…"

    Charlie Duke Lengthy Autograph Manuscript Signed with Christian Religious Content. Offered here is a truly incredible handwritten Christian testimony from one of only twelve men to walk on the moon. An 8.5" x 11" sheet of Duke's personal stationery where he has neatly written some of his thoughts regarding his religious beliefs. This item has wonderful display potential. Transcript follows. Excellent.

    "This is my God - the one who does not forget a single sparrow and tells us that we are each worth more than many sparrows. This is my God - the one who has numbered every hair on our head and the one who lovingly clothes the lilies of the field (Luke 12:6-7, 28).

    This is the Lord I love and serve. This is the Lord who transformed my life. This is the God who restored my marriage. I used to say I could live ten thousand years and never have an experience as thrilling as walking on the moon. But the excitement and satisfaction of that walk doesn't begin to compare with my walk with Jesus, a walk that lasts forever. I thought that Apollo 16 would be my crowning glory but the crown that Jesus gives will not tarnish or fade away. His Crown will last throughout all eternity (1 Corin 9:25). Not everyone has the opportunity to walk on the moon, but everybody has the opportunity to walk with the Son. It costs billions of dollars to send us to the moon but walking with Jesus is free - the gift of God. "For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourself, it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast." (Ephesians 2:8-9).

    "Blessings to you!
    Charlie Duke
    APOLLO 16 MOONWALKER"
