He accepted a challenge at the church and memorized twenty verses. One day as he was on his way to work, one of the verses that he memorized, John 5:24, popped into his consciousness: “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life” (kjv). After that, another verse (John 1:12) came to mind. As a result, Trotman trusted in Christ and became a Christian. During the rest of his life, he memorized hundreds of verses from the Bible, founded a very successful Christian organization, the Navigators, and taught thousands of others how to memorize Scripture."
