Goodbyes are unavoidable in life. There are many reasons we might have to say goodbye and generally, it’s very difficult. Sunday was one of those times in my life personally and in the life of Emmanuel. This week we said goodbye to a couple very dear to us.

Roger and Patty Hill have been part of ministry in Montana since 1963. They have served well and in many capacities. Their fingerprint of faithfulness is all around us. Most recently, Roger served as an elder at Emmanuel. They made a decision to sell their home and move to Texas to be near their family.

On behalf of the entire Emmanuel family, I want to express my deep appreciation and gratitude for years of ministry and influence and I pray God’s deepest blessings in the next season of their lives. They will be deeply missed and are very loved.
