Bro Bruce prayed for me so many times in celebrity recovery and spoke encouragement over my life when I was going through a difficult time I will miss him so much

Bro Bruce was truly Holy Spirit ANOINTED....when I first started visiting Family Church I sat in the back and each week I was compelled to move closer to the front; finally landing on the 3rd row behind Bro Bruce and Rachel. Their Spiritual aura was visible to me and the closer I moved the stronger the Holy Spirit was manifested. They prayed with me through many life struggles and taught me how to study and apply God's word to daily living. I learned how to be the hands and feet of Christ through serving with and observing Bro Bruce and Rachel. Bro Bruce's ANOINTED presence never diminished with his illness; my visits with Bro Bruce and Rachel was always uplifting and refreshing. I will miss my Ice Cream buddy but so very thankful for the blessing he brought to my Spiritual growth. Rachel you and your family are in my prayers for comfort and peace. I am thankful for the privilege of knowing Bro Bruce and consider our friendship a true BLESSING. 2 Corinthians 5:8 We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord. AMEN and AMEN
