This one hurts…

A lot of you may wonder why I titled this blog in that manner and not more professionally. I felt sort of an attachment to the ministry though, and it hates me to even write this. However, one of the greatest Generals of Faith, world-Renowned Pastor, Speaker, Teacher, Minister, Preacher, Father, Husband, Grandfather, and Friend (among many other esteemed titles), has gone on to be with the Lord.

I watched this man minister the Word of God on television for years. I was a true fan. Even though I have a church and I didn’t even live in the state that he pastors in, I was drawn into his ministry by the stand that he took on faith and his love for God. I have gotten the opportunity to purchase several pieces of his literature and it has been a blessing to me as well. Even when his son took over the ministry, I stayed in tune. Here over the last few years, God blessed me to connect with one of his daughters on social media! I have been blessed to develop a friendship and bond with her as well. As a result, this definitely feels more like family.

Please keep his family, church, friends, and everyone who knew and loved him in your thoughts and prayers. “To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord…And we know that if our earthly tabernacles were to be dissolved, we have a temple not made with hands waiting for us in the Heavens”…
