A few weeks ago I shared with you about having the opportunity to baptise a man whose daughters both were a part of our youth group with one being a leader the other a high school senior. Their dad had been sick for some time but recently made a decision to give what remained of his life to Jesus as well as get baptized. He passed away 10 days ago, and I officiated his funeral this past weekend. I have officiated many funerals in my short ministry career, but none were as challenging as this one. I could barely speak at times as the emotions were almost too much. But in the end, his life was honoured and the work that God had done in and through him celebrated. I thought I would share with you this video that we made, it was the opening of the memorial service and to me it was so encouraging for a few reasons:
1 – The Gospel was proclaimed loud and clear from a student and a leader not a pastor
2 – It made it clear that Jesus was the only way
3 – All who attended the memorial were able to hear the Hope that Lauren and Georgina have in Christ and Christ alone.
If you have 7 minutes, I hope this can encourage you today.
