Paul loved the land he owned in SD and enjoyed farming/ranching with his family. He had a great love for horses he trained and used for his cattle operation. Another love was for music. He conducted the church choir for over 65 years, directed many patriotic pageants, and instilled this love in his children. Paul's first love, however, was for the Lord. Many people don't know this, but he personally smuggled Bibles into China and delivered them throughout Russia . He taught Sunday school for most of his life and helped spread the good news of God's salvation through Jesus Christ though prayerful support of foreign missions.
