We are sadden to learn of the loss of Bishop Bobby Martin. We will meet him again according to holy scripture. May you find comfort from God's word, 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 For the LORD himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangle and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 17: After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them and the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And we will be with the Lord forever. 18: Therefore encourage one another with these words.
