May our Lord be your strength , Pastor Al Im. Sure is up in Heaven ministering to others smiling telling stores & being a man who Loves our lord very much

mrs franklin and family - cannot fathom the depth of loss for you - not just a man of God but so much a man's man - special way of ministering to men that so few pastors can - blessed to have sat under his ministry for a time and so very thankful for the friend he was to our sons family - so have been prayin for you all -

Pastor Franklin will be missed by many for he was so loved not only by his congregation, but also all the children in Grace Baptist School. My 2 boys are now grown adults, they had many stories of hunting, fishing and his love for photography. I personally feel blessed to have had Pastor in our life, while we attended Grace. My prayers are with his family, and the many friends he had. We know that he is now looking down on us and as many have said with his family that passed years before...

Dear family I have only ever heard amazing things about uncle Al not that I knew him, I wish I had. I think I met him a time or two. Growing up with such a large family makes it hard to know everyone but the one thing that always brings me joy is that our great grandparents, grandparents and parents thought us to love the Lord and we have that in common forever. I know he is rejoicing with all the family in heaven and I look forward to one day saying hello. God bless all of you

Dear Pat
I am praying for you and your family. I thank God that He is the God of all comfort, and He will certainly care for you, and give you the wisdom that you need during this time. I thank God for Al's ministry in my/our life during our time of living in Redding.
Love, in Christ,
Dale Cundall

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.

Sad to hear this. Many childhood memories hunting, fishing, cutting fire wood along with Christmas trees for elderly, church softball games, church building projects and cheering us at Awana games. Certain he influenced generations for good and has a special place of good memories in each of us. Thank you Pastor Franklin for a life well lived. Blessings

As a student in Al's Bible classes at Liberty Christian, I remember we would try to get him off task and tell us about his hunting trips. He would gladly comply, and we thought we were getting away with tricking him into no homework. Little did we know that he was a willing partner in our scheme. I remember nearly everything I learned from him and I can still quote the "chronolgy." We have to say so long, for now, but we have a blessed hope in eternal life together in Christ
