I've had the pleasure of knowing Paul for over 25 years through our church, Calvary Chapel. Paul was a true gentleman; thoughtful, with a caring heart and a ready smile. He was always ready to share whatever he could with others, whether it was his home, his finances, his time or his advice in practical or spiritual matters. Paul's love for God and God's Word was evident in how he lived his life. Always willing and able to teach a Bible study or share a message on a Sunday for an absent pastor, he also practiced what he preached.
In Galatians 5:13 Christians are reminded to “serve one another in love”. Paul truly was a “servant of God” during his “appointed” days on earth. When he suddenly changed his place of residence on Nov. 24, from earth to heaven, he would surely have been welcomed by the words spoken by Jesus in Matt. 25:23, “Well done good and faithful servant.”
Until we meet again Paul, your presence will be greatly missed!!
