Don Hocking with the Lord
On Christmas Eve, Don Hocking longtime leader and missionary and founder of Grace Bible Mission in Cameroon came face-to-face with His Savior. We received the following info from his son, Pastor Tom Hocking (Bellflower Brethren):
"My Dad slipped into Jesus' presence at 10:45 PM last night, shortly after I visited him and Mom after our Christmas Eve service. I'm not sure if he was aware that I was there but I prayed with him and encouraged him to stop struggling and rest in Christ. I returned to their room after he passed until his body was removed by Forest Lawn personnel around 2 AM. This morning I went to Forest Lawn and made the following arrangements for his services:
