Fellowship News (March 2019)

With a sense of sadness, yet mixed with joy as we announce the passing of our dear brother David Piggott. The loss at 92 of such a loving husband, father and grandfather, as well as a good friend and faithful member of Rehoboth for so many years weighs heavily on our emotions, yet at the same time, the joy of knowing that he, as a sinner saved by God’s grace, is now with his Saviour where He is, fills us with comfort. The fact that the Lord called him on March 1st, it could be said that saint David has truly arrived home! Our prayers are very much with May, Rachel & Sarah and families, that they may know God’s sustaining comfort and encouragement.

Others in the Fellowship have been unwell with seemingly slow recovery rates. Pray for restoration.
