Missions Leader Avery Willis Dies At 76

I was privileged to be present at Ridgecrest Conference Center this past week attending a Discipleship Conference during which was shown a video from Avery Willis. He had made the video just days before from his hospital room.

He gave a powerful message recalling God's call upon his life and again issuing a challenge for making disciples of all nations.

I, like many of you, have been eternally impacted by Avery's influence. It seemed strangely ironic that I was hearing this final message from Avery in the same place where his influence had begun in my life so many years ago.

Perhaps you have not seen this article announcing his death today after several months battling leukemia.

And be sure to see this final video message from Avery here.

Until next time...share the journey and enjoy the ride!
