I received the sad news earlier on today that Ron Ball passed away this morning.
Ron and his wife Barbara have been part of our church for over 38 years. He came from a Salvation Army background and I'll always remember him playing his horn in the band in the days when we met in Wick Hill Hall, and in the early days of The Kerith Centre. Since I've taken over leading the church Ron has always been incredibly supportive and would always speak positive things into me at every opportunity. He will be greatly missed by me and many others.
Please be praying for Barbara and for the rest of the family at this time. God is the God of all comfort who comfort's us in all our troubles - let's pray that they know the reality of God with them in all they are going through.
There will be a service of Thanksgiving for Ron's life. I'll let you know via the blog and on the family news section of the website when we've got a date and time for that.
