Junior is, well, Junior. Saturated with self-confidence, convinced that everybody adores him, proud of what he regards as his “movie-star good looks,” and antsy to have a good time at the drop of a hat, Junior is a party waiting to happen.
Having been Chip’s primary ventriloquist figure for the past ten years, Junior has covered hundreds of thousands of miles traveling with Chip. He’s rubbed shoulders with stately Arabs in Bahrain, talked with homeless gypsies in Spain, welcomed visitors on-board the oldest passenger ship in the world in New Zealand, presented the gospel at a university in Korea, gone door-to-door visiting homes in Mexico, encouraged the homeless in South Africa, and chatted his way through hundreds of meetings in churches, conferences, and outreaches in up to 35 countries around the world. And never once has he complained that he always has to fly in the cargo hold of the plane. Well, maybe he’s complained once or twice.
Junior is a free spirit with a hankering to make it on his own. He’s even tried that several times, but always comes up short. He claims that Chip puts words in his mouth and treats him like a dummy, but few others feel that way about Junior. They always see him as his own person.
Junior is full of ideas—some good and some not so good. Junior dreams of someday living his life apart from Chip. What he learns time and again, however, is that apart from Chip, Junior can do nothing.
