Life Without Father

My dad died Monday.
He had been sick a long time.
We will all miss him.
We are all concerned about mom. They had been married almost 60 years.

Dad was a practicing Christian - which means he not only professed to be a Christian - he acted like one.
He was a veteran of WWII and served in the South Pacific.
Dad will be sorely missed by everyone who knew him.
He will also be missed by people who never knew him because dad supported his church, missionaries, and personally told people how to be saved and handed out gospel tracts on salvation to those he couldn't speak to. (There are a lot of Mexicans around where dad lived. He thought they should learn to speak English, but in the mean time he communicated with them as best he could.)
Who will care for these people now?
Will you?

The world needs more Christians like my dad. To loose even one Christian like dad is a loss to the entire world.
We need more Christians to stand in the gap left by dad.
We need more Christians who consistently live their lives in a way that is pleasing to Christ and tells the world they are different than the world.
We need Christians who love people the way dad loved them.
We need Christians who want a well done from the Lord more than they want earthly possessions.
Please pray for my mom.
God bless you.
