On Saturday, August 13, Paul Nunnelee passed away suddenly. His wife, Marla, has worked with the Global Outreach Home Office for many, many years, most recently as Vice President of Finance.
We are grieving with her, with their children, and with their extended family. A memorial fund has been set up in Paul's honor through Global Outreach; funds will be placed in a special account for Marla to use to support Global and our missions family at her discretion.
In a broken world, God's justice and goodness are sometimes hard to see clearly. This is especially so in times of deep loss and grief. We ask that you pray and mourn with us, remembering that the God of all comfort (2 Cor. 1) has conquered sin and death in Christ Jesus (1 Cor. 15), so we don't mourn as if we have no hope (1 Thess 4:13). Marla has expressed her gratitude for all the notes of support, and will resume her work with Global as soon as she is able. In the meantime, we are giving her and the family space to rest and grieve as they see fit.
