Solomon grew up in a Christian home and made a profession of faith at age nine, during his family’s devotion, strongly emphasized by his parents. Each family member was expected to spend time alone with God and then share lessons learned during the family devotion.
Ruby was born in Trinidad & Tobago of unmarried parents. Her father placed her in an orphanage at three months old when her mother left him. At age 16, the orphanage placed her as a maid in a Chinese family and later in a Muslim family. She came to Christ through Missionaries from The Evangelical Alliance Mission.
