Sadly, Carlos Burns passed away in his sleep earlier this morning. For those of you who did not have the privilege of meeting Carlos, he was a man of deep conviction and faith. He was never shy about sharing his thoughts but I admired that he was passionately driven by his personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Whether through his leadership in the business world or in the church, the world was changed for the better by his presence. The Lord worked powerfully through Carlos and his wife, Jean, to shape Effort Baptist Church and he will be missed.
Scripture tells us that we do not grieve like those who have no hope. We know that the Lord received Carlos home this morning and that he is now resting in a place of peace and pure joy. Please join with me to pray for his family and friends during this time.
