OBITUARY

 

A LIVING FAITH

 

"And we are His witnesses of these things:  And so is the Holy Ghost whom God hath  given to them that obey Him." Acts 5:32

Elder J.P. Clemons' life was a remarkable example of God's healing power, through Christ Jesus.  By faith, He trusted the Lord for his healing for more than sixty years.

Not once, since he embarked upon this bold venture of faith, did he resort to doctor's medicines or hospitals.  He gladly spoke of this abiding faith wherever he went and many were inspired by this trust of his in the Lord.

 

May God grant each of us the willingness to strive more eagerly for the faith which this beautiful testimony exemplifies.

I have been through the valley of weeping,

The valley of sorrow and pain

By the God of all comfort was with me,

At hand to uphold and sustain.

 

So we'll follow wherever He leadeth,

Let the path be dreary or bright;

For we've proved that God can give comfort,

Our God can give songs in the night.
