Window of Life: March 9, 1927 to September 11, 2008

James (Jay) Simmons, was a Christian, a deacon, a Bible teacher, a husband, and a father.  Jay, as he is called by his friends and love-ones was a faithfully and tirelessly with us at Set Free by the Word Ministries, until the Lord called him home.  Jay will surely be missed.  John the Apostle wrote, ?And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on: Yea, says the Spirit, that they may rest from their labors; and their works do follow them (Revelation 14:13 King James 2000).  When tomorrow come, please try to understand, that an angel came and took me by my hand. God saw me getting tired and a cure was not to be, so He said come home my child with to me."

Donnie G. Thomas was a beloved father, grandfather, and a relentless man of God.  Donnie was a great Bible teacher, and he loved the prison ministry; he served with Set Free by the Word Ministries faithfully until the Lord called him home.  Donnie was a faithful member of the Ephesus Church, he missed only one worship service in twenty-four years Donnie never met a stranger, and he love bringing people to the Lord. Donnie also served in the U.S. Army, he was a recipient of the Purple Heart.  Donnie's contribution to the Lord's work will be greatly missed.  "For though I am absent in the body, yet I am with you in spirit, rejoicing to see your good order and the firmness of your faith in Christ." Safe in HIS arms, now and forever." 

Honoring our Deceased

  • And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. And he that was seated upon the throne said, Behold, I mak?e all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are faithful and true.? (Rev. 21:4-5 NKJV).)

  • And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on: Yea, says the Spirit, that they may rest from their labors; and their works do follow them, (Rev. 14:13).
