April 27 • Valencia, CA, United States •
My treasured friend Philip Powell went to be with the Lord yesterday.
Philip was a true gift to the Body of Christ in Australia, NZ, and beyond. Philip ministered immensely to me through his articles long before I met him in person. So thankful I did get to know him years later. Time and distance will sadly keep me away from his funeral but I do look forward to spending more time with him in eternity.
They say you can judge a man by his friends. I would say you can also judge a man by the enemies he makes. Philip shone in both departments. He was a man who was never for sale with convictions that could not be bought. May godly uncompromising men rise up down under and fill the giant void left by Brother Philip Powell!
May God give a special measure of grace to his wife, Kathleen, and family at this time.
Until we meet again Philip.
