Today a very good friend of mine and a brother in Christ boarded a plane to depart to another duty assignment. I will miss him greatly. Friends are precious.
It is hard to imagine that we will not be running together again on his 4-day weekends. I look forward to the day God brings him back.
But I know that in spite of 1000s of miles of distance today's modern communication devices will allow us to stay in touch and our common love for our King will bind our hearts together in service in to His Kingdom.
He has served our Lord well and His church exceptionally well. He will be missed by all those to whom he taught so very faithfully every week.
I pray our Lord will guide him to his next duty assignment in the kingdom and he will bless another preacher as much as he blessed me.
Reasoner, be faithful and serve our King will all you have and He will reward you beyond your wildest dreams and expectations.
