Janet and family, we just saw the news about Brother Wayne's homecoming with the Lord. The obituary brought back a lot of memories. So glad that we had the privilege of knowing him and serving the same Lord. You are in viewing as we write this and surely will be blessed by those who join us in sharing your time of grief.

Our prayers are with your family and all who knew him. Wayne was such an encouragement to my wife and I as we served overseas. His love from mission work is what helped us make the decision to serve as overseas educators in the Philippines and now in Uganda. We will never know how far his influence has gone with the Lord's help. Thank you for all that God did through his life with the help of Janet as well. Roger and Joey Fletcher
