Not sure what to say?

Deepest sympathies to Phyllis and children and family in the loss of Dale — from Pastor Fred and Kathy Krebs. We always appreciated Dale’s friendship to us, and will continue to value yours as well, Phyllis. God’s kingdom shines a little brighter, even as we all grieve the loss of our brother in Christ’s ministry, Dale Brand.

I remember Dale and Phyllis, Michael, Lisa, and Krista, from August 1970.

I was then eleven, when my parents, Arnfeld and Hildur, and younger brother, Rob, and I returned, after four years, to keep serving with the Lutheran churches and schools in Colombia.

The Brand family came from Sogamoso to our Mission house in Bogota, a few times, for meeting family needs, and, as I recall, to the missionary family retreats, in Melgar, January of 1971 and 1972.


Very kind man!

Dale was an intelligent, compassionate, kind, thoughtful, loving person who left anyone who interacted with him feel that the world could be a better place. I will miss Dale greatly, however, he impacted the lives of so many, and in our hearts he will continue to live on. Dale, I wish you peace. I love and miss you.

Dear Phyllis and family,
I just want you to know what a blessing Pastor Dale was to my parents when they were going through some very hard medical struggles. We all appreciated his many hospital visits, prayers, and deep concern for them. May God hold all of you in His loving arms and give you comfort and peace.

We enjoyed Dale as a social and spiritual friend.

He was a loving friend that I will miss talking and playing bunco with.

What a wonderful man, he came to thehospital to give me communion and because I couldn't have wine he used water. He was always so friendly and happy. He will be greatly missed.
