The Peace of God

The past few weeks have been sorrowful ones for our church family. We have lost two beloved sisters in Christ. Rey Peterson and Betty Brown were dear members of our church, loved by our membership and admired for their faith.  Rey went home to be with the Lord on July 2, and Betty entered her eternal home on July 9.  We will remember them with love. Rey fought cancer with  courage . Betty was a loving, faithful Christian for 70 years. She faced her illness with great faith and dignity.  Both worked diligently for the Lord, and the conduct of their lives were shining examples to all of us. Their absence leaves an empty place among our family, and we grieve for them and mourn with their families.  We find comfort and peace in knowing that, through Jesus Christ, eternal life and joy beyond measure is now theirs.  In HIm, there is no death, for He has promised the reward of heaven for those who are faithful, for those who come to Him and who, like Betty and Rey, live in obedience, sharing their faith with others and doing His work freely. We  will miss them, but we praise God that they have a new home, a beautiful and glorious life in heaven. We thank God that He brings peace to those who belong to Him.
