Death of a Friend

This morning, while working on Sunday’s sermon lesson, I received a call from an old friend in Altoona, PA. He informed me that his father, Peter Brooks, has died at the age of 85. Pete was one of the first American missionaries to the northeastern part of Brazil. It was through his gospel witness that many in my large family came to know Messiah.

Pete was instrumental in helping me return to the US in the late 90’s. Consequently, my return to the US led me to where I am today in the gospel ministry. I will miss Pete’s smile, his love for people and his undying commitment to Christ.

Pete, may your body rest in peace!
