    Dear Pastor Danny and Maryse,

    I’m so, so sorry to hear that your father is no longer with you. I’m so happy to hear he’s with the Lord Jesus, you will mourn him and you will miss him of course. His heart meanwhile, is soaring, he is no longer bound by natural laws, he’s in a redeemed body, glorifying God with the angels and feeling more alive then he ever did in his years on earth.

    My prayers and thoughts are with you all. Treasure the memories of a beautiful dad and grandad and look forward to embracing him again once more when we enter the veil of eternity.

    May God bless you and hold you during this time.

    With lots of love,

    Sarah and Amanda

    Dear Danny and Maryse,
    I am saddened to hear that Ian Oorloff has left his family behind,
    but the joy of it is that you will be united with him and all our
    family members who have died trusting in the Lord. He who bore your
    grief and sorrows on the cross will enable you to rejoice and his
    ‘graduation’. It’s hard to lose a beloved one but now you are more so
    in the front line as far as the generations are concerned, it is our
    responsibility to cast the vision for eternity with Christ to as many
    as will listen.
    May you all be strengthened and comforted in the knowledge that for a
    believer to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord!
    Yours sincerely in His love,

    Senior Minister Rob.

    Dear Danny, Maryse and family

    I heard late Monday night about the sad news of Maryse’s precious dad and send you my heartfelt sympathy and sincere condolences. Since I was leaving for overseas I was unable to pay you a visit yesterday. At the moment I am at Singapore airport so thought I would grab the opportunity to get in touch – praise God for emails.

    Yes, it is a difficult time for the family, especially since it is so close to Christmas and I know how families rally to be together even if it is a phone call away. May God grant you His peace and comfort at this sad time and may you know and feel presence at all times.

    When I get back I will certainly pay you a visit but it will not be until the first week in Jan. Members of our family are heading for Canada to be with my Uncle for his 90th birthday and also celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary so I know how important family are and my heart goes out to you at this time.

    Please be assured of our prayers for you and the family and I am sure friends will rally to also give you support but I know no words of comfort will ease your pain. However, your Dad is in a better place now and who better to be with than the Lord who gave us life. This transit time here on earth can be very painful until it is time for us to go to our Heavenly abode but at least we have hope in the Lord that we will all be together again one day.

    Thinking about you and I do wish you all have a Peaceful Christmas and God’s abundant Blessings in the New Year with Peace, Joy, Love and Happiness always.

    With lots of Love to you all.

    Please pass on our condolences. I hope to see Pastor Danny soon in Camden NSW.

    Dear Pastor Danny and Maryse,
    I have just received your email with the news that your father/father in law has gone home to be with Jesus and joined the great company of those who have been faithful in serving the Lord Jesus while on this earth and now entered into His presence.

    The power of the Holy Spirit will be your comforter and give you the knowledge of His peace.

    The Eternal God is your refuge and dwelling place and underneath are the everlasting arms (Deut. 33:26-27).

    I was greatly blessed and encouraged with this scripture when my husband died suddenly without any prior sickness.

    The joy we have is to know that we will all meet our loved ones again as we look forward to that soon coming Day of the Lord, when Jesus will return and His Kingdom will be established on the earth for all eternity.

    You will be in our prayers,

    Belle (wife of late Leo)

  30. 30 Office 2

    Dear Maryse & Danny,

    I want to express our sadness at the loss of your father, Maryse, and so far away. Adelaide, from the Central Coast of NSW where Maurice & I live, may as well have been a moon away when my own Dad died. The years go by and still I think, “I must tell him about such and such …………..”, and then comes the realisation that I cannot. Praise the Lord that your Dad is with Him, and therefore, his joy is perfectly, totally and most abundantly, filled. I know Danny will be a great comfort to you Maryse as you walk through this inevitable path of grief, but you must grieve – it is human and healthy to grieve such a sad loss. The LORD Himself comfort you at this time. There is no comfort like His comfort. Praise Him.

    Not many days to Christmas. I have VERY mixed feelings about this time of the year – have you read the Two Babylons, Danny? Besides, it was June/July in Israel for shepherds to be in the field by night. However, it is good to have two specific times in the year when Christian concentration is, or should be, on thanking God for His Love, Grace, Mercy, Kindness and all else that He is when He sent us His Beloved, only begotten Son. Begotten cannot be adequately translated into English, and it is only addressed to our Beloved LORD Jesus Christ. The coming, soon coming, LORD of Glory fill you with all Joy and Peace in believing.

    With loving thoughts and greetings, Anita & Maurice.
