Christina Gordon Releases New Book
It is with great honor that I reproduce the Foreword to my book written by my beloved husband, who has made my married life heaven on earth. I decided to make his write up my first Blog post. Just in case you do not read my book, you have the opportunity here, to feel the life I live at home. So today, I honor my husband Robert and I thank him for all the years we ministered together hand in hand. Like he told me “Where you are going is bigger and farther than where we have been so I you charge and admonition you to not remember the former things neither consider the things of old. Behold I do a new thing, saith the Lord; this new thing is springing forth and you know it. God has made a way for you in the wilderness and rivers in the dessert so do not look back because whether I am alive or absent in the body you will never be alone.” What a mighty man of God, what a great dad, what an angelic husband. I am truly blessed!
FOREWORD BY DR ROBERT BUGH to the Book, The Smile Behind the Mask: Confessions of a COVID-19 Nurse by Christina Gordon.
I am Dr. Robert Bugh. I am the man who has been privileged to be married to my beautiful wife Christina Gordon for almost 25 years. My wife asked me to write the foreword to her new book “The Smile behind the Mask: Confessions of a COVID-19 Nurse”. What an honor for me. I know her to be a Spiritual Powerhouse, smart, very intelligent and a dedicated wife, mother and nurse to her patients. I have seen her come home after a 12 to 14 hours work hours and she would break down and weep over one of her patients many a time.
She gave me a copy of her book to read, as I read it, I saw this spiritual leader among women trying to share the gospel and God’s plan for mankind. She expressed how she overcame fear of COVID-19. She explained how her confessions helped her overcome COVID-19. If people will read this book and follow her plan from God, they will be able to also defeat and overcome any plague like COVID-19, whatever it might be, now or in the future.
I was a pastor for many years with a denominational body and when my marriage failed and my ex-wife left me, I lost my church as well. I was broken. I met a very good friend of mine Dr. Don James who invited me to his church to heal. At the church, the love of God extended to me by his wife and church family will never be forgotten. I got a secular job in Senoia, Georgia and had to relocate from Columbus Georgia where Dr. Don and his church were located. Dr. Don recommended Dr. Henry Jones’ church to me in Jonesboro, Georgia. That was where I met my beautiful wife Christina.
Christina was the first women I ever met who ministered without notes. She had this relationship with the Holy Spirit that I envied. She seemed to know things before they happened and when questioned she would say the Holy Spirit. I remember asking the Holy Spirit to reveal himself to me as he did to my wife. We ministered together as Evangelists and later as co-Pastors. I am now retired and my wife is a Registered Nurse but she is still full of the same vibrant and energetic love for God today as when we first met. We are members of World Changers Church and have embraced the Grace of God. I saw how quickly my wife bounces back from every setback that the enemy places along her way and they have been many. She channeled her energy to her nursing career. I rejoice with her every time she comes home with one award after another from her places of employment. Just a couple of days ago she is a finalist in the March of Dimes Distinguished Nurse of the Year Award in Georgia. She is as dedicated to me and our children as she is to her nursing career.
When the COVID-19 pandemic became a nightmare to the world my wife was at peace because God had given her the strategies to combat COVID-19. My wife wrote this book in a few short weeks. It was divine. What she wrote she practices every day and has kept me and my children COVID-19 free. You will not be able to put the book down when you start reading it. My wife is working in the grace of God that is very real to her. She is very genuine, a strong philanthropist, a truly strong and bold Christian who is not afraid of anyone but God. When she says God said, you can take it to the bank.
It is my great honor to introduce to you my wife, a faithful, dedicated, loving and caring woman who has given me the best years of my life. I give her the permission to go to the world and shine because it will be selfish of me to keep this treasure to myself and not share her. “The Smile Behind the Mask: Confessions of a COVID-19 Nurse” is actively practiced in my home. I pray to God that you will pick up your copy today and extend this treasure of a book to others around you. Doctors have given up on me many a time but through the prevailing prayers of my precious wife Christina, death has been swallowed up in victory. I will continue to be grateful to God for my anointed prophetic wife Christina Gordon, a formidable author, one you will come to appreciate like I do now, for very many years to come.
