Dear Praying Friends,
He was a long serving police officer, faithful husband and godly father. As if that weren’t enough for the average man, he also sacrificed his hard earned money to financially support missionaries all across the world and was a tenacious prayer warrior on their behalf. Over the years, he wrote us many notes asking for updates on people and situations we had mentioned in our monthly prayer letters. We knew we had a faithful prayer warrior in Thomas Holroyd! But on Friday, April 14, at 6:22 pm, the Lord decided this super hero of a man had finished his course, had kept the faith and was ready to receive his rewards.
We grieve for his children who have lost their beloved father, we grieve for the many missionaries (including us) who were the recipients of his faithful financial and prayer support down through the years. He may not have been well known outside of his family and hometown, yet he is intimately known by His Savior and Lord. Only eternity will reveal what his financial sacrifices and labors in prayer accomplished all across the world. I am sure he is meeting folks right now that he was instrumental in seeing saved!
Will you volunteer to take his place? Will you ask God to use you as He did Thomas Holroyd? Will you kneel before your Creator and Savior and willingly commit all He has given you to reach untold millions in this world? Life is so short and we only have the time and resources God gives us to make an eternal difference. Thomas Holroyd understood this and invested in eternal treasures. Will you?
Praising God for prayer warriors,
