Today we celebrated the life of someone that meant a lot to Apostolic Faith Church. Sis. Olga Newman was one of the oldest saints in the church. Not just in physical age but also in spiritual age. She had been attending AFC for over 30 years. When she passed last Tuesday she was 96.
This is the second funeral that my dad has had to perform since we moved to North Dakota. If I ever went into the ministry I would hate to perform a funeral. It is one of the toughest times to be able to reason with someone because they are going through such a hard time in their life. You have to be very careful with the words that you use because one wrong word could offend the whole family. But he has managed and has done a good job. The previous funeral was for a kid that was like seven years old, it was vastly a different kind of funeral than this one.
