John Van Lent

On March 2 Clare's brother, John Van Lent, personally met the Risen Christ. He and his wife, Gert, have been loyal supporters of our ministry for many years. In the months before his death, Jack had chosen hospice instead of aggressive treatment when his cancer returned.

February was rich with memories and preparations for his final journey. One of his wishes was that The Dwelling Place would receive any memorials given in his honor. We thank him and will continue to remember in our prayer him, his family, and all those who have generously given memorials.
