It is with a broken heart that I share with you the elevation to Heaven of Bro. Allen Stephens. He is healed and is seeing first hand the beauty of the one he shared through his life – our Lord and Savior.

Please continue to pray for his wife Omega, daughters Shanda and Ashlee, Michael, Jedd and Ava Hutton along with extended families. He has left a tremendous hole and we will surely miss his kind heart and gentle spirit! What a wonderful blessing to have ministered alongside him.
