A Reason To Celebrate!

The service for our friend Stefan Tarapchak yesterday was wonderful. The choir and Allen Lowe did an incredible job of singing songs of praise and hope. I was so proud of Sandi as she delivered a memorial speech to Stef. While it was, at times difficult, this morning I rejoice. As a matter of fact, I can’t get away from how excited I am this morning. I keep thinking that Stef would have wanted it this way. What would he have wanted???

SEVERAL people accepted Christ as their personal Savior at the end of service yesterday.

I rejoice that Stef’s personal hope was that “just one” would be saved. His journey will forever change the eternity of countless people. Scripture tells us that when one gets saved, there is literally rejoicing in Heaven. So to that I say….let’s party down here on Earth!

Thank you Stef.

You fought the fight.

You won the race.

You spoke louder than before.

Lives are forever changed!

  2. Thanks for that comment! It is hard to think of what life will be like down here without him but there is a big party in Heaven and I know Stef is rejoicing over the new brother/sister he has in Christ!

  3. Amen Brother. Well said, and to think of those that have accepted Christ – by attending his funeral… Exactly what Stef shared with many of us as his hope.

  4. Fred – Thanks. Every one from AC180 had very special meaning to Stef as well. The coming together of that blog was providential on Gods part.

    Jen – No doubt it is going to be different. Thank you for everything that you and Jim have done during his Journey. It’s been so wonderful to get to know you all better too. The gift of bringing new friendships is something we will all have from Stef.

    Darrin – Exactly what Stef hoped for. In some way, it makes the journey worth every mile doesn’t it? Thanks for not only supporting Stef, but for supporting me as well. Appreciate you brother.
