George Veenvliet - June 13, 1947 - May 4, 2010

This past Tuesday, my friend George passed away suddenly. George was a 'Barnabas' to me and many others in the Binbrook Baptist Church family and beyond. In the last few days I've been oscillating between shock and grief and a stoic 'get it done' work mentality in planning the funeral. Please pray that Christ would be exalted through our church's Sunday morning worship service where I plan to preach on Barnabas, and at the funeral on Monday, where I plan to preach on Lamentations 3. George was a beautiful Christian whose life displayed the gospel in so many ways.

Below is the newspaper write-up:
