Vanuatu, South Pacific: It is with sadness that we received the news of the passing of Kenneth John Potter, Missionary David Potter’s father, who passed peacefully on August 31st, 2016. Sylvia sent in the following note:

“We are very sad, but so very glad that he is receiving the reward that he has trusted his Savior for all his life! He went to heaven on his wife’s birthday. She was probably having a big party and Dad couldn’t miss it!”

Please commit to pray for David and Sylvia Potter as they travel home to be with family for the memorial service. Pray for safety of travel and the peace that only our Lord can bring during times such as these. Thank the Lord that we have hope in Him!

*** Update***

David was just diagnosed with a detached retina and will have surgery to correct this on Monday September 12th in Colorado Springs, CO.  Please keep David in your prayers as well as the Surgeon and staff, that God would guide them and the procedure would be successful.

David and Sylvia Potter
