Our congregation share in the loss of Julie Donaldson who passed into the arms of Jesus on January 7, 2019. Julie was a beloved member along with her husband, Jim, who passed away February 13, 2018. Our love and prayers continue for Jim's and her son, Dale, and daughter, Lee, and their many family members and friends. To lose both parents in less than one year after both were diagnosed with a terminal illness about two years ago is a difficult challenge when trying to move forward in their own lives, so our hearts are broken for them. Both Jim and Julie were active members of our congregation and Julie served with our Mountaineers ministry throughout her illness.
The good news is that they are now together again and this time for eternity as they celebrate the faith they had in Jesus, a faith that motivated them to teach the gospel to others and which brought them both to heaven. We will miss them dearly but look forward to meeting them again.
