In times like these, we hold fast to the Truth that while we grieve, it is not as those who have no hope. For we serve a Risen Savior, a Risen Lord, and because He Lives, we too shall live. This is the Promise Brother Lester is now living. Singing praise to our Savior face-to-face. May the Lord Himself cover your family with peace that surpasses all understanding until we meet again.
