Lonnie and Betty Rex to celebrate their 64th Wedding Anniversary, Monday, April 8, 2013
It is a pure delight and a perfect pleasure for me to announce that Monday , April 8, 2013, Lonnie and Betty Rex of Spring, TX, will celebrate their 64th Wedding Anniversary.
God has blessed Lonnie and Betty with three marvelous and outstanding adult children: Royce, Tricia, and Debbie.
Lonnie Rex is the son of the late Bishop and Mrs. Robert L. Rex.
I met Lonnie and Betty in 1954 at the National Pentecostal Holiness Church when Ray Stewart was the pastor.
When Lonnie took the Southwestern College Choir back east to Washington, DC, New York and down to Florida, he said he fell in love with Washington, DC. He had never seen a television before in his life. He wanted to earn a Master's degree from Georgetown University. So, in the early 50s he took Betty and their son, Royce, to DC, where he worked as a salesman selling fabric and materials for upholstering furniture. He did so well as a salesman (super salesman), he decided not to go to the university.
Lonnie and Betty Rex are well known musicians in the Pentecostal Holiness Church.
Lonnie taught music at Southwestern College and took his college choir on tours back east. He was courageous when he raised the money to purchase choir robes for the singers. In those days, they couldn't afford to charter a commercial bus, but drove cars and vans, and lived from one church to the next from the free-will offerings to buy gasoline and food along the journey. But, God miraculously supplied their need, many times at the last minute.
Lonnie and Betty are gifted pianists and organists.
Betty and Lonnie have played Piano Duets for several Presidents of the United States at the National Religious Broadcasters Conventions.
Lonnie has spoken at Cambridge University and Oxford University. He has also spoken at the Congress of Arts and Communications Symposium in Singapore, NYC Waldorf, Romania and Italy.
Lonnie Rex will long be remembered for his magnificent choirs at General Conferences and General Sunday School Conventions. No one could put together a better or bigger conference choir and orchestra than Lonnie.
Lonnie Rex worked for some notable world renowned evangelists like Oral Roberts, T. L. Osborn, Billy James Hargis, and others.
No one in the known world is better at writing letters that get results than Lonnie Rex. However, he is a silent partner and always stays in the background.
Probably, the most important work of Lonnie Rex was his founding of the David Livingstone Foundation, a humanitarian non-profit organization that brought relief to victims of earthquakes, floods, drought, and Tsunamis, e. g., food, clothing, medical supplies, ambulances, modern medical equipment for doctors, and the building of hospitals and orphanages.
Lonnie is known by world leaders, and even had an audience with Pope John Paul II. He and Betty were guests at the Pope's Castle outside of Rome and invited to attend the 6 a. m. Mass in his private chapel for his staff. In their honor, i. e., Lonnie and Betty, two priests took guitars and sang in English, "This is the Day that the Lord has made.
The Pope said the Mass in English in Lonnie Rex's honor for the Humanitarian work he had done with him in Poland.
Lonnie Rex was Knighted in Moscow for his Humanitarian work there with President Mikhail Gorbachev.
Lonnie Rex has been in North Korean three times at the invitation of the North Korean Government and was able to bring eight (8) North Korean Officials to the Jimmy Carter Center in Atlanta, GA.
In addition, Lonnie Rex met with Queen Sophia of Spain, the Queen of Greece, Prince Phillip of Greece, Morarji Ranchhodji Desaithe Prime Minister of India, Prime Minister Kessika of Uganda, President Chaluba of Zambia, the Pope of the Coptic Church, and was awarded medals by the President of Korea.
However, let it be known and published from shore to shore and from sea to shining sea, that behind every successful man is a gifted and talented woman and a surprised mother-in-law. She is Betty Sorrells Rex.
Let us wish Lonnie and Betty a happy and wonderful 64th Wedding Anniversary.

Foreword to Lonnie Rex's Book
Lonnie Rex is the son of a Pentecostal Holiness preacher, evangelist, pastor, church planter, writer and author, who became a general executive official of this great classical Pentecostal denomination with 3.8 million people in 103 countries around the world where he was the executive director of Evangelism and World Missions.
As a young boy Lonnie was stricken with Polio. His life was in the balance and he was not expected to live. However, his parents' prayers touched the heart of God to spare his life and he lived to overcome this physical challenge with his faith in God.
Through the preaching of his father, Lonnie's heart was captured by the story of the lad who willing gave his lunch to Jesus that his mother had prepared for him of five barley loaves and two small fish. Jesus blessed the loaves and fish and fed 5,000 men, notwithstanding the women and the children. That story became Lonnie's burning desire to give what he had to Jesus, and became the motivating force in the extensive ministries God gave him over many years of humanitarian service around the world.
Lonnie never asked anything from God for himself, but prayed that God would give him ideas, concepts, and wisdom to be used to help others. He believed God could use him as He did the lad in the Gospel narrative to bless others.
For many years Lonnie served some well-known American evangelists in their ministries through tent crusades, large auditoriums, radio and television.
God gifted Lonnie to be one of the foremost fund raisers of the 20th Century through letter writing that funded the gigantic costs of mass evangelism and healing ministries. His writing style touched the hearts of people to give generously, and God blessed his every effort to help others through these various ministries.
Meanwhile, God led him to be the founder of the David Livingstone Foundation that has brought food, clothing, shelter, and education, as well as financial, medical and spiritual resources to people of many nations. He provided boats and personnel to carry Vietnamese refugees to safety, and saved countless thousands of lives. He has provided medicines, medical supplies, ambulances, built clinics, hospitals, and orphanages to the glory of God and the good to mankind.
As you read this exciting book about the intriguing stories he tells of the challenges and opportunities to help people in their time of need in many places in this world of ours, you will discover what a man endowed with a generous heart and so committed to God can do to serve suffering humanity.
I have known Lonnie Rex since 1954 when I was a young Marine playing trombone in the Quantico Marine Band during the administration of President Dwight D. Eisenhower, and on special events our band played for him when he came to Quantico, the Showplace of the Marine Corps.
Lonnie and I met at the National Pentecostal Holiness Church in Washington, DC where we both attended. He and his wife, Betty, were involved in the music ministry of the church. They are both gifted and talented pianists and organists. That friendship has endured all these years, and I consider Lonnie Rex to be one of my most treasured and trusted friends.
[ Editor's comment: Lonnie Rex will have a table in the lobby of our church in Athens on Sunday, October 5, with his books. He will be there to autograph the books your purchase for yourself, family, and friends.
