It is with great sadness I write this. My blog friend and AC180 comrad passed away on Sunday. You can read it here.
He fought cancer so hard and we were with him and his family every step of the way.
It is an odd thing having internet friends. I have reconciled with myself however that even though I have not met many of them they are closer to me than friends I know in person.
Stef was an amazing man of God. He fought hard for his life and prayed hard. He lived each day to it’s fullest and cherished his wife and and three kids dearly. He was and still is an inspiration to me. Even in my personal struggles he would, while dealing with cancer, send me messages of encouragement and to let me know he was praying for me. I know it was tough. real tough. But stef lived the word.
In everything…Give thanks.
And that spoke to my heart more than anything.
I am thankful with every fiber in me that stef is with the Lord right now.
His favorite verse was
Phil 1:6 “6 There has never been the slightest doubt in my mind that the God who started this great work in you would keep at it and bring it to a flourishing finish on the very day Christ Jesus appears.”
God fullfilled a great work in stef. Probablly more than he or his wife even knew. He reached many people and I know at minimum the guys at AC180 all recieved a piece of Christ from him.
I am thankful I knew stef, wish I could have met him, and filled with joy about seeing him in heaven.
Thank you stefan…..
