This past Christmas I messaged Pastor Russ Frase a Christmas greeting. He has been a mentor of mine since I started Bible school back when I was 19 years old. What he messaged me back brought a level of concern to my heart. He tested positive for COVID and it was wreaking havoc with his body and asked me to pray for him. For the next few weeks, my family and I spent time daily praying for his healing, but on January 16 he went home to be with his Lord and Savior.
I have been grieving his departure, but also remembering the investment he implanted in my life. He has visited me more than anyone while I lived in the Philippines and Thailand. I am so grateful to have known this man. Please feel free to read the tribute to him that you can read by CLICKING HERE.
His memorial service will be on February 4 back in Colorado. Therefore, we as a family are taking a road trip to attend it. This trip is unplanned, but things are coming together so we can be there.
So if you are in Colorado and you would like to see us, please text or call me at 720-401-8347. I know due to COVID some would be uncomfortable spending time with us. That is fine. But if you want to see us, we want to see you. We will leave Colorado on February 16.
Also, we moved to a different house, but we are still in Richmond, VA. If you would like our new address just reply to this email or text me and I will pass it on to you.
Thank you to those who have been supporting us through this challenging season. Know we are so grateful for you. Thank you so much for praying and standing with us.
In His service,
