Memories Timeline


  1. Your Christian brothers and sisters in Iowa (Scott’s church, Connections Christian Church) have been and are praying for all of you. Scott has spoken so well of Mark and Lynda through the years. We hear of his trips to visit there each year and how much he enjoys being with you. We are asking the Lord to strengthen and hold you up through this time. Mark has been a man of faith. He knew his Savior in this life and now knows his Savior in eternal life. Imagine what Mark is seeing with his eyes now. Psalm 27:4 says, “One thing I ask of the Lord, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to seek Him in His temple.” (NIV) What is Mark seeing now?

  2. My deepest condolences to the friends and family of Mark. May your treasured memories bring you joy, and may ‘the God of all comfort’ give you strength, along with a measure of peace for your grieving hearts at this most difficult time.
    2 Corinthians 1:3
