Winston ArriesA righteous oak has fallen, a giant of the Faith has been called, a mighty and courageous warrior has finished his battle on Earth to take up his spiritual battle on behalf of God. I stand amazed at the fire you had for God- the selfless sacrifice you made for the advancement of God's Kingdom. Never have I met a man with so much love for God as you, my brother. Thank you for pouring yourself out into so many of us. We thank you as well, Bonnie, for being obedient in releasing Greg back to God as his natural job is done, and he is taking up his mandate for the Kingdom. You, also have done a great job.
