A Brother finishes his race

<p>On April 26th Larry Warren completed his race.  Larry was a three year student studying both the Deaf Ministry and Congregational Ministry Tracks.  Larry graduated in May of 2006.</p><p>Some of you were aware of Larry's battle with cancer through Facebook or through the Caringbridges website <a href="http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/larrywarren/mystory">http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/larrywarren/mystory</a> Linda set up to chronicle his battle.  Larry was a man who loved people and wanted them to know about the wonderful gift of salvation God has made available.  After learning of his battles negative turn in January I spoke to Larry to see how he was doing and he wanted to talk about my work in Caribou.  He asked more questions about the work of the Gospel than I could ask about how he was doing.  Here he was battling cancer and all he wanted to discuss was how to better reach people for Christ.  This was a man with treasure upon treasure in heaven as that is where his heart was.</p><p>I saw Larry a few weeks ago after the Manchester CT Chruch Growth Conference.  He reminded me of the torture that Jonathan and I would inflict upon him, almost daily, with our Dunkin Donuts coffee cups.  Dunkin Donuts is not found anywhere near Sunset, or maybe even TX, so it just reminded him that good coffee would have to wait until he got back to Antrim.  During my visit with the church there in Antrim I was able to witness firsthand the love that they have for the Warren family.  I pray we all show that kind of love every day to those whome we love.  It was a great visit but altogether far too short.</p><p>There will be a memorial service for Larry on May 1st at the Antrim church of Christ.  I have pasted the details from their website <a href="http://www.antrimcoc.org/">http://www.antrimcoc.org/</a> below.</p><p>Jay Repecko</p><p>SIBI class of 2006</p><p> </p><p>Our dear preacher, Larry Warren, went to be with the Lord on Monday, April 26. A bit later we'll add a page to remember him, the immense effect he had on people, and how God has used him, but for now we wanted folks to be aware of plans for his memorial service.</p><p><b>Time &amp; Location</b></p><p>The service will be at the Antrim Church of Christ (address below) at 1PM on Saturday, May 1.</p><p><b>In Lieu of Flowers</b></p><p>In lieu of flowers, the family requests you donate in Larry's name to one of the following charities:</p><p><a title="Heros of Hope Grey Ribbon Crusade" href="http://greyribboncrusade.org/donate.cfm" target="_blank"><span style="color: #0066cc;">Heroes of Hope Grey Ribbon Crusade</span></a><br /><a title="Norris Cotton Cancer Center" href="http://www.cancer.dartmouth.edu/giving/donateonline.shtml" target="_blank"><span style="color: #0066cc;">Norris Cotton Cancer Center</span></a></p><p>If you donate on-line you can put "In memory of Larry Warren" in the comment field.
