Notable Baptists pass away


Two Baptist leaders passed away recently. Bill Wright, pastor of First Baptist Church in Plains, died Feb. 19. Bill truly was one of the take-charge leaders in our state. His heart for God was as big as this state. His funeral will be held on Wednesday, February 24th at 2:00 p.m. at FBC Plains.

Evangelist, author and pastor BO Baker died Feb. 18. The Baptist Standard has an obituary already posted on Baker. To read it, click here.

    These two men were Baptist pillars. Both will be missed. Both contribute greatly to a time in which Baptist were not in decline, being sued, nor looking for six figure paycheck.

    Rick Davis has published a very fitting tribute to Bill Wright on his Aintsobad blog.

    A Grand Reunion is Coming!

    Soon we will be reunited with our loved ones.

    Luke 23:43: “Truly I tell you today, You will be with me in Paradise.” All the earth will be transformed into a paradise under the rule of Christ as King.

    (John 5:28-29) “Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice 29 and come out,”

    How I look forward to a Grand Reunion with my Family & Friends in the paradise earth!—Rev. 21:3, 4.
