Tonight my dear Grandpa Lynn died and went to be with Jesus at 9:25 p.m this evening. He was 92 years old.
He loved the Lord with all his heart, soul, mind and strength. A pioneer missionary to Africa for 43 years, he finished his race well, without a blemish on his integrity. He was a man of God. He leaves behind my Grandma, Edna who is 94.
I will deeply miss him. He was very dear to me. I wrote about him on the occasion of their 67th Wedding Anniversary. What a legacy to have left! This was one of my most favorite recent pictures of him.
I'm flying up to Kelowna, British Columbia to make funeral preparations. He wanted me to conduct his funeral. It will be a celebration of his life.
"... we want you to know what will happen to the believers who have died so you will not grieve like people who have no hope. For since we believe that Jesus died and was raise to life again, we also believe that when Jesus returns, God will bring back with him the believers who have died." 1 Thessalonians 4:13-14 (NLT)
Jesus: "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live." John 11:25 (NKJV)
