Greetings all, I would like to thank you for the prayers on my own behalf and on behalf of the children and the whole family. God bless each of you.

I am mourning the death of my best friend and father of our 4 children, but I hold fast to the word of God, Isaiah 43:1,2 “this fire that I walk through now shall not scorch me because he has promised to be with me through it. I can’t understand this, but I will not question God. I am called to trust and obey. God will remain God even in this storm. Continue to pray for us. This coming Sunday Gerald and I would have made 12 years of marriage. May he rest in eternal peace.

“Precious in the sight of the Lord is
the death of his saints” – Psalm 116:15


WELCOMED HOME, JUNE 28, 2014 while working in Rwanda, Africa


  It is with rejoicing for Gerald but mixed with shock, sadness and grieving for all who knew and loved him that we share with you the news of Gerald’s unexpected early departure.

“Absent from the body, present with the Lord.” Very shortly after posting a new profile picture of himself on Facebook, wearing the formal robes of his position as a professor at the new Christian seminary in Rwanda that Gerald slipped and fell in his bath. Head wounds ushered him very quickly into the presence of his Lord.

For loving words and pictures from his brother in the Lord and in ministry, Tim Hokeclick Read more.
