Today, November 9, 2017, God called His faithful servant, Bishop H.E. Wheatly home to receive his well-earned reward. He was our beloved friend, our father in the Spirit, our mentor, our teacher, our leader, our shepherd and a Godly role model. We honor Bishop Wheatly for a life well lived and we thank him for teaching us by word and by example how to serve God faithfully. Today our loss is heaven's gain and our sad goodbye is heaven's joyful hello.
Through the scriptures, we understand that what seems to be a sorrowful separation is really a heavenly reunion in that celestial city as Bro. Wheatly meets the Saviour he loved so dearly and reconnects with his loved ones and those saints that preceded him.
Well done our good and faithful servant. Enter into the joys of the Lord. You have kept the faith and finished your course. We love you. We honor you and we will never forget you.
