I was sorry to hear of Reb Avners passing. It was mainly through this man that I learned more of Messianic Judaism.

Leah, you and your family are in my prayers. May the Lord raise up the right person's to carry on the CTOMC legacy.

Our deepest condolences Leah and family. We have so many fond memories but what stands out the most was his absolute devotion to his family, he completely adored each of you.
He was a gentle giant with a delightful sense of humour.
Psalm 25 seems such a fitting Scripture as our thoughts turn to memories of him.
May HaShem be your strength and comfort now and always.

My deepest and heart-felt condolences for the whole extended family of Reb Avner. I am praying for you, MMin Leah, and wish you peace and strength. The CTOMC page I have on Facebook remains active for your use and anyone who finds comfort in it. I look forward to meeting Yeshua in the clouds, and you and Reb and all my other loved ones. I remember the strong support and encouragement I received from Reb, and he really helped me through my hardest times. I am forever grateful and thankful to him for that and for his ministry and love to many people. He truly cared from his heart about everyone. Be blessed in Yeshua's name!
