Thank You for Praying
Thank you all for praying for our family during the time of my father-in-law’s homegoing. We appreciate your love and concern. We are so thankful that Dan is with the Lord. He received Christ in the fall of 2002, and the Lord changed him. Dan loved the Lord, loved going to church, and loved the things of the Lord. He had a desire to see souls saved, including his family members and people in the community. He was a loving man, tender-hearted, although firm and unbending in certain ways. He was a man’s man.
Dan loved Bethel Baptist Church and Jackson County Baptist Church. He was excited about the church-plant work here in Medford and regularly asked how things were going and if anybody new was coming. I was pleased to tell him of our visitors, just a couple of days before he died. He said, “That’s good.”
The Lord has comforted our family in many different ways, including the love and support of you all and so many other believers. Even some saints who didn’t know him poured out their love and support to us, and that was a great encouragement. The way the funeral came together spoke of the Lord’s sovereignty. Please continue to pray for my wife and my mother-in-law. The memories are fond, and the loss is great; but the comfort in knowing his eternal reward and the love of Christ exceed all.
