Loss of a great friend 8-27-12

It is with great sadness that we share with you the news that a great friend of ours and of Kenya has gone to be with the Lord, Buck Seymour. Buck passed into eternity Saturday night and has left a big hole in our hearts. 

Buck served on the Mission Barnabas board and has been involved with the work in Kenya since my mother first bought the land to build CMM. Buck was in Kenya right after the land was purchased and even rented a bulldozer and started doing excavation on the land.

The spot where the dining hall now sits was a small pond. It was the first place Buck started the bulldozer work.

He then went on to do the majority of the architect and design work for the current buildings at CMM. The plans to enlarge the pavilion are on my computer from Buck as we raise the funds to do the expansion.

Our staff has been so blessed by him and several of them had visited with him at his Gulfport home and they are mourning his passing very deeply. He was a great friend to many and his handiwork is all over the ministry here.

Buck has always been a great encourager to Debbie and me and he will be greatly missed. 
Please say a special prayer for his wife Carol and his family as well as Cedar Lake Christian Assembly. Buck had a great impact on many people’s lives and many will need God’s Grace to celebrate his home going.

Buck, we will always love you and from your friends in Kenya…..Rest in Peace!!


Ronnie and Debbie
