Deacon well prepared himself for rebirth and now goes to live in the eternal, spiritual world. We had the honor & privilege to attend Bible study with Deacon Jim & his Bride over the years. But the most touching "gift" he imparted to the recipients (pilgrims) of his ( "A Thought"... ) emails was his acceptance of his Cross, the sojourn that lead him into the sunset of his life on earth. Truly, A Soldier of Christ, he used his remaining time to impart to us the urgency to get right with God. It moved me- instead of thinking about all his immediate problems-he was still trying to convey & urge our participation in the paths to our Salvation by following the suggestions of Jesus Christ & with his short time allotted, giving his last breath, to save others. The emails were not warnings but kind of a "heads-up"- "wake-up" -"this-is no-joke". We are talking about the state of your immortal soul! Time is a-wasting. John 16: 12-13 "I have many more things to tell you, but they would be too much for you now." Being so close to God, Deacon Jim has found Truth. My Faith was strengthened by his Faith. Forever in debt to him. In Complete Gratitude for being allowed to get to know such a tower of a man. "Well done,my good & faithful servant" is the greeting he received upon arrival on the next step of the journey. With much love to Betty and her dear family. XXXOOO Anne & Pedro Martin
