Slim Whitman's religious faith

"Slim Whitman's songs and yodelling are loved by millions around the world, but few probably know about Slim's religious faith. He was raised as a church goer. He fell in love with the minister's daughter and they wanted to marry. Slim was just 17 and Geraldine 16. They got permission from both sets of parents. I was just a kid in the 1950s when the headline of a British paper (Slim being very popular there) said: You'll Never See Slim Whitman in Movies,
They went on to explain that his wife, a minister's daughter, did not mind him becoming famous but she did not want him to ever go to Hollywood and be in movies. Slim VOWED to her that he would never do that. And he never has.
God must have had a purpose for his life (when Slim did not even know what he was going to do in life), for when he was in the Navy during the Second World War, he was at the last minute, transferred from one ship to another. The first ship he was to be on was hit by enemy fire and sunk, all on board died.
Yes, Slim is still married to his 16 year old sweet-heart (as of 2008) - 67 years of happy married.
