Rev. Daniel T. Gilmore - District Superintendent
Greetings! Hosanna to the Son of David: Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest (Matthew 21:9).
The memorial service for Dr. John Seaman was held this past Saturday. It was a service laced with sadness yet full of blessedness and rejoicing. We celebrated a life well lived, a life lived for Jesus. Saint Paul declared, I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all those also who love His appearing (2 Timothy 4:7-8). Truly this testament is rightly applied to Brother John Seaman. He finished well and left distinct guiding footprints on the narrow path that leads to life eternal. Let us continue to pray for his beloved wife, Linda, the family, and the Michigan district. Now it is our task to continue the work of the Kingdom in joyful anticipation of glory!
Yesterday was a special day at Weidman. We held an instillation service for Rev. Matthew Gunderman. Matt and Michelle come to our district from the Wesleyan Church and have taken up the charge at Weidman. It was a blessed Palm Sunday service as we rejoiced in the coronation of our Savior and King and celebrated the new ministry assignment for a precious family. Please keep the Gundermans and the Weidman congregation in your prayers as they work together in Kingdom building ministry.
As we begin the passion week may you be blessed in precious reflection of the vital events of our Savior’s redemptive work for mankind. May you worship Him in blessed reflection of Holy Friday and Resurrection morning on Easter Sunday!
In Our Savior’s Service Together, Rev. Daniel T. Gilmore
