Hank Montoya With the Lord

The following comes to us via Doug Lee and Tom Avey:

Hank Montoya, a leader of "the Fountain" a Grace Brethren Church in Fontana, California, that recently closed and a long-time friend of folks who regularly
attend the Southwest Focus retreat, passed away Friday, December 28.

Hank worked with Doug Lee to plant a network of house churches in that area. Doug reports, "I've got some sad news. Hank Montoya, my longtime associate, passed away last Friday. You know he was struggling with ALS (Lou Gerhig's disease) and it finally took his life.

"Please pray for his grown kids (two sons and two daughters). As you would expect, he was the spiritual anchor of his family."

Hank was a fantastic leader - a humble servant who would never baulk at serving anyone at anytime. He discipled by living out his faith with folks. He mentored me in his attitude in the midst of ALS, in faithfulness and perseverance. I could never be discipled in these areas without Hank's leading out and setting a Jesus example in these area's of his life. Hank may well sit near the right hand of Jesus.
