My deepest heartfelt condolences go out to the Chambers family. It was an honor and pleasure to meet and pray with such a man of God, Mr. Chambers.
The Chambers family can be comforted with the knowledge that God's servant, Columbus Chambers, has been greeted in the heavenlies with the announcement, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.
Let us all celebrate together with the heavenly host the reception that our brother Columbus Cambers is receiving in heaven. Though he will be greatly missed here, we shall meet him there. Maranatha! Pastor Rafael Colón Jr.
